Thread: Colin Kaepernick Sentenced to NFL Limbo?

  1. #1

    Colin Kaepernick Sentenced to NFL Limbo?

    -It's more than a week into free agency and Colin Kaepernick is still unemployed. Remember, this is a quarterback who played in the Super Bowl only four years ago, yet now it appears he can't get a look from teams. So I set out to discover, once and for all, what teams think of the 29-year-old former Niner.

    "He can still play at a high level," one AFC general manager said. "The problem is three things are happening with him.

    "First, some teams genuinely believe that he can't play. They think he's shot. I'd put that number around 20 percent.

    "Second, some teams fear the backlash from fans after getting him. They think there might be protests or [President Donald] Trump will tweet about the team. I'd say that number is around 10 percent. Then there's another 10 percent that has a mix of those feelings.

    "Third, the rest genuinely hate him and can't stand what he did [kneeling for the national anthem]. They want nothing to do with him. They won't move on. They think showing no interest is a form of punishment. I think some teams also want to use Kaepernick as a cautionary tale to stop other players in the future from doing what he did."

    When I spoke to a handful of executives at the combine a few weeks ago, one even called him "an embarrassment to football..."

    Spike Lee is trying to make something of it by saying, "Lee said it "Smells MAD Fishy To Me, Stinks To The High Heavens" that Kaepernick, who opted out of his San Francisco 49ers contract, still doesn't have a job.

    Uh...news alert Spike, there isn't anything fishy about it at all. It's as obvious as the nose on your face why nobody wants him. If he can't understand that he must not have high comprehension ability. But of course he's trying to make something racial out of it.

    As soon as Kaepernick pulled that stunt, a friend of mine prophesied that this is exactly what would happen. I mean exactly! Wow!

    We have freedom of speech in America but it comes with a price. It seems to be time for him to pay up.

    Since he hates America so much, perhaps he should try to play in another country?

    Spike Lee need to be quiet, go to Chicago, and help keep the young black men from murdering one another on a daily basis. Can't stand these "useful idiots" blabbering on social media about so-called "injustices" against millionaire athletes, while the very black men they claim to care about are murdering & being murdered by the thousands every year.

    Yes, and take Spike with him.

    Not to mention, Kaepernick had been a horrible QB that past few years.

    I guess the owners don't like him like they didn't like Tebow. They wanted to shut him up too.

    I think the Kaepernick/PC stuff hurt their ratings.
