Episode Twenty-Eight: The NFL Anthem Protests with Darius Fleming


This week I chatted with Darius Fleming about the NFL Anthem demonstrations and all that has gone along with that.  Darius Fleming is a Chicago native and graduate of the university of Notre Dame. He was drafted by the 49ers in the 2012 draft and later went to win super bowl 49 with the patriots in 2014. 


It was really interesting to hear Darius’ perspective as a player, and one who was there on Colin’s team when it all started.  Darius cut to the core of what these demonstrations are about and why they matter.
