CAREER OVER! Teams Across The NFL Telling Kaepernick, YOU’RE DONE!
Everyone is entitled to do what they want to do as long as they aren’t hurting any one other person. That’s a right guaranteed to them by The Constitution. One thing that liberals tend to forget with that is that while you are free to say whatever it is that you want, eventually you may have to pay the piper when you’re done dancing…
All throughout last season, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick made a spectacle of himself. Now he’s complaining that no one wants to hire him.
According to several different outlets, Kaepernick, who is now a free agent for the first time in his career, is getting the cold shoulder from the league’s many organizations. One anonymous AFC general manager chalked Kaepernick’s cold reception up to three things: 1) he can’t play at a high performance level anymore, 2) owners fear his presence will cause a backlash among the fanbase, and 3) owners and organizations simply hate him. (via The Mercury News).
Expanding on the third point, the unnamed AFC general manager said: “They [the NFL owners] 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.”
Beginning during the pre-season, Kaepernick began kneeling or sitting during the playing of the National Anthem. When this disrespect was noticed, Kaepernick was all-too-eager to explain himself to the media.
Kaepernick essentially parroted the verbal garbage of Black Lives Matter in protesting against racial discrimination and police brutality, via CBS News. Kaepernick further highlighted his political ideology by attending press conferences in outfits referencing Malcolm X and Fidel Castro.
