Attempting to compare two distinct and different individuals is never a good idea, however in a culture where a brief video clip of someone’s foolish antics can garner millions of viewers, it worth reminding ourselves that substance over style, eventually wins out.

Recently Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, a young man of considerable substance, was asked about his take on the Colin Kaepernick dust-up, and his comments about the oppression of “black people and people of color,” and about police willfully killing black youths indiscriminately.

Wilson is a man of deep faith who visits children’s hospitals, and raises millions of dollars for various foundation, and volunteers his time in worthwhile causes, and simply sets an example on how a sports figure blessed with his talents should act.

What a real competitor looks like before a game:

Grateful to live in a place where freedom is a right. #Proud2BeAnAmerican

“For me, I love the flag. I love the National Anthem because it’s an emotional time for me because I’m so grateful I get to play on the football field. And every time I get to put my hand on my heart, it’s truly an honor — you know, the military, for me I think about my family members who have served, and friends — I train down in San Diego all the time, so I’m around the Navy and I see those guys around. And all they do for our country and the people in Afghanistan and all these people fighting. 9/11, for example, coming up — that’s going to be our first game and I think about all the pain from that. So that’s why I stand and put my hand on my heart.”

Quite a contrast no doubt from Kaepernick’s view of America.

Happy #VeteransDay to all of the men and women who are our country's real heroes. Today I'll be asking for your autograph.
