Professional athletes love to use sports as a vehicle to push their woke agenda.

But the tide is beginning to turn against them.

And the San Francisco Giants announced a new rule that Colin Kaepernick is going to hate.

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started a trend in 2016 sports of athletes kneeling during the pre-game national anthem.

Former President Donald Trump taking office in 2017 inspired even more privileged athletes to begin protesting imaginary injustices.

Former U.S. Women’s soccer team player Megan Rapinoe and even high school athletes followed this infuriating trend.

New baseball manager says no kneeling for players

San Francisco Giants manager Bob Melvin is beginning his first season with the team after serving as the skipper of the San Diego Padres the previous two seasons.

Melvin instituted a new policy that required players to be present on the field and standing for the national anthem before every game this year.

The veteran manager said that he had the same policy for the other teams he’s led during his career.

He said that policy wasn’t about politics but to show the other team that they’re ready to play.

“Look, we’re a new team here, we got some good players here,” Melvin told USA Today. “It’s more about letting the other side know that we’re ready to play. I want guys out here ready to go. There’s a personality to that.”

“It has nothing to do with whatever happened in the past or whatever, it’s just something I embrace,” Melvin added.

The three-time Major League Baseball (MLB) Manager of the Year said his team was embracing the new rule.

“You want your team ready to play, and I want the other team to notice it, too,” Melvin said. “It’s as simple as that. They’re embracing it.”

The new policy is a reversal of how the Giant’s former manager handled the national anthem.

Giants’ former manager protested the national anthem

Gabe Kapler, the former manager of the San Francisco Giants, stopped going out on the field for the “Star Spangled Banner” after the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas in 2022.

He also kneeled for the national anthem during the 2020 season to protest the death of George Floyd.

Kapler explained the decision to his team as a protest against “police brutality” and “racism.”

“I told them that I wanted to use my platform to demonstrate my dissatisfaction with the way we’ve handled racism in our country,” Kapler said. “I wanted to demonstrate my dissatisfaction with our clear systemic racism in our country.”

A new day is dawning in a city that was once the epicenter of protests against the national anthem.
