Is Colin Kaepernick being blackballed
by NFL teams? Prove he´s not

MSN Sports, by David Steele

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 3/19/2017 11:15:36 AM

It seemed a little early to condemn NFL teams for freezing out Colin Kaepernick. Barely a week had gone by in free agency. With one exception — albeit a grotesque, borderline-obscene one — not many quarterbacks had been coming off of the market. Bleacher Report’s Friday story on how front-office types still want nothing to do with him for his protests during the national anthem shined another light on it. (Snip) Come on. Stop it. Do not ever say Colin Kaepernick can´t get a job because he´s not good enough. Think of a better excuse. Think of a better lie.

Comments:
We can always hope so.

Would you hire him? Not that talented and a troublemaker who drives away fans and probably disrupts the team (it is supposed to be a team).

This will probably turn into another racialist deal. His radical girlfriend won’t help (is she still in the picture?)…

Sometimes people set up the blackball on themselves. That’s Kaepernick, in my book. His game is now Social Justice. Their game is Football. For money. Shut up and perform or buh-bye.

He and Michael Sam could go somewhere and have a good cry.

His stats the last few years is all the proof you need: as a quarterback he stinks. The Anthem nonsense is just a distraction from that inconvenient fact.

(A very unfortunate headline in our color blind society!)

Kaepernick tends to overlook open receivers down-field, upsetting the timing of lots of plays. His line cannot protect him efficiently unless they know what he is going to do, and the receivers down-field aren´t much use if the ball is not delivered to them on time.

And his political apeshit is a net debit.

Of course he is not being hired because he is a problem for any franchise that hires him.
Just like hiring the openly gay player or hiring Tebow.
They chose to have a profitable business, not a left wing propaganda tool.
I doubt that all of the owners contacted each other to conspire against Colin.
He has damaged his star by himself.

"Seems a little early to condemn NFL teams for freezing out Colin Kaepernick.."

The NFL was already condemned by real Americans for letting this POS diss the flag and the country. Kaepernick put himself in this position so there is no reason to condemn the NFL for not picking up a racist troublemaker.

Ditto #7. I´ve got news for Mr. Sportswriter-cum-social-justice warrior: nobody has to prove a darn thing to you; if you´re too stupid to see the picture for yourself, that´s your problem. The NFL´s problem is a decline in viewership, and they are doing a little something about it here.

The author is an idiot.

Kaepernicks "performance" includes more than stats which the author faintly praises as "not terrible".

Professional sports are ENTERTAINMENT. The ultimate measure of performance therefore is box-office revenue, not "stats"

If Kaepernick could make a team a boatload of money, he would be sitting on a juicy contract already.

Instead, more than one news source attributes a declined in NFL TV viewership to the politicization of football.

If the NFL loses half of its viewers, how secure does David Steele think MSN Sports, his job, or his income are?

Get over yourself dude. Football is entertainment. You get negative reviews, it doesn;t matter if you believe your performance is politically relevant. That´s not what the customer wants.

Let´s say the guy had really good skills as a quarterback. I still wouldn´t consider him because it doesn´t matter how good you are at the game if you can´t be a leader. As a Quarterback it is just as critical to be be a team leader as it is to see the field and hit the target. As a self-absorbed, left-wing, radical "victim" Kaepernick is not a leader of men. He´s a problem child.

It is to be expected that Kaepernick would have a hard time getting a new job in the NFL as his quarterbacking record has not been that good along, with the fact that NFL Head Coaches who are trying to win football games don´t need the off field distractions that Kaepernick has a history of initiating.

They dig up the most obscure things about a Supreme Court Nominee and don´t believe he is qualified to serve, but a guy who uses his star power to disrespect the national anthem based on his socioplitics, is a hero. Let him go out for a draft pick on a middle east soccer team in Iran see how that works out.

We need to adopt a policy in this country of go into politics join an Anti American group or leave it. You have a right to say what you please and do whatever stupid thing you wish, but the public also has the right to not want you messing with their country or being part of the sports choices. It´s like free speech you can go up to anyone and tell them what you think of them, that´s your right, what you risk however is getting punched in the nose. Not being popular any longer is his punch in the nose, live with it!. Simple, anybody?

He caused headaches and the fans to turn off football.

NOW...he says he´ll stand for the anthem. That alone proves it was a stunt to get attention.

I sure hope so.

At least now the NFL is showing some smarts.

They blew it when they didn´t kick him off the field on his first kneel.

Everyone is talking about his STATS as if HE were the team. If the teammates missed the block, or missed the pass, because KC and his kneeling - KC would have bad stats and the team would not win.

It´ll be interesting to see the 2017 49ers. I hope they bounce back.

I refused to watch the NFL all of 2016 (didn´t really miss it) - 2017 has a chance to come back, if I don´t see news articles about, pig socks, BLM t-shirts, hands-up-don´t-shoot gestures and Kneeling.

These overpaid entertainers can bloviate off the field, like actors Ashley Judd or Robert De Niro (that I´ll never pay to see again).

Re #35: Actually, "first kneel" isn´t quite accurate. At first, Kaepernick just kept his seat on the bench while everyone else stood for the anthem. It was some more media-savvy companions who convinced him that taking a knee looked a bit more like a legitimate, "respectful" protest than just the flagrant disrespect that he obviously intended. It´s a pet peeve of mine because his cheerleaders in the lefty media quickly changed the narrative to indicate that he simply "took a knee" all along.

I was under the impression the 49ers were about to let him go until he started this, then they had to wait so as to not be accused of this very thing. That and the other quarterback was not very good and got hurt.

The team managers and coaches will have the opportunity to draft young, healthy QBs, each with a world of potential. The QBs drafted will most likely used as be back ups, where they will have time to learn the team´s system and playbook, and make the adjustment to being instant millionaires.
Or they can draft Colin the Complainer. (He has been a whiner throughout his athletic career. UNLV was the only school to offer him a scholarship because of his size. SF got him relatively cheap, without having to use high draft picks to do it. (See Cleveland Browns, famous for drafting QBs badly.)
And finally, Colin can´t even operate on his principles. He says he will no longer do the protest stuff.
(Ironic that Colin, half black, was saved from the ghetto, or the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, when his white teenaged mother, abandoned by her black sperm donor, entered into an open adoption with the Kaepernicks. Colin grew up in a loving white family who tried to help him maintain his black heritage. He had every advantage.
Yet he despises whites.)

He won one game last year. There is your proof. He´s not good enough.

Tebow was unconventional but won games. Osweiler was in his first year as a starter and won more games than he lost. Both took their teams to the playoffs and each won a playoff game. Both are spoken of as worthless, no-talent scum by the sports writers.

I do not feel sorry for Kaepernick at all. I think he started his "protest" when he knew he was on his way out, so that he could blame any ouster on that, rather than on his performance on the field.

Jay Cutler didn´t take a knee during the anthem but no team wants him either. So just maybe the issue is owners don´t want second rate QBs who are an emotional drag on the team.

I´ve been on several magazines, columns, and comment sections regarding some news about Kappy. Never have I seen a greater number of people say they would not watch him or any other 49er´s games because of him. The coaches considering him as a free agent are only listening to them and deciding he´s just not worth the loss of viewership. The whole NFL suffered last year. I, myself, only watched Seattle... It´s called natural consequences. Maybe now that he´s gone the NFL will be more enjoyable.

Crapernick just sold one of his mansions for many millions. His ´girlfriend´ will stick with him just as long as the money holds out. Then she´ll be on to the next useful (rich) idiot. It will not be a big surprise if Crapernick has not planned for the future and ends up broke.

There are plenty of other mediocre quarterbacks out there that won´t cause massive PR headaches for your team.

So why would you waste time even talking to this idiot if you want your team to be popular (which equates to profitable)?!?!?

I am a Browns fan. I would not be surprised if they picked him up. He is no good and a trouble maker. Right up their alley, sadly.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) says she´s not running for president. Her office says she´s focused on her Senate reelection bid. But she has the public schedule of a future presidential candidate. Warren will speak Sunday to the NAACP in Detroit, and next month will deliver the keynote address to an annual gala held by Emily´s List, which aims to elect pro-abortion rights female candidates. Both groups represent important Democratic constituencies, and the NAACP speech will bring Warren to Michigan, a key swing state President Trump wrested from Democrats last year. Warren, who is running for re-election in 2018, raised $5.2 million in

The Obamas have been taking a much-deserved break from politics since moving out of the White House. But next week, it´s back to reality. President Barack Obama will be in Chicago on Monday to discuss community organization and civic engagement. As we all know, the Obamas have impeccable taste in food, so it wouldn´t be surprising to see the former president surveying the Chicago dining scene when he returns stateside. Will he visit the renowned Alinea? Or return to an old Obama favorite, Spiaggia? Last September, my husband and I had a chance run-in with Barack and Michelle, who were in New York City for their last visit as

Senator Elizabeth Warren launched another attack on U.S. President Donald Trump on April 19, describing his election win as partly the result of an “ugly stew of racism” on the MSNBC Rachel Maddow Show. (Snip) She added that xenophobia played a big part in Trump’s election campaign. “He got that people are deeply angry,” she said. “People are right to be angry, but Donald Trump said it’s their fault—those other people. Those people who don’t worship like you, those people who don’t look like you, those people who aren’t the same color as you.” Warren also attacked the president for

Donald Trump has a “dangerous mental illness” and is not fit to lead the US, a group of psychiatrists has warned during a conference at Yale University. Mental health experts claimed the President was “paranoid and delusional”, and said it was their “ethical responsibility” to warn the American public about the “dangers” Mr Trump’s psychological state poses to the country. (Snip) James Gilligan, a psychiatrist and professor at New York University, told the conference he had worked some of the “most dangerous people in society”, including murderers and rapists — but that he was convinced by the “dangerousness” of Mr

Steel yourselves. Barack Obama’s about to emerge from the shadows — and first stop, University of Chicago. Why there? No doubt, it’s one of the more receptive breeding grounds for his particular brand of activism — the activism he’ll be touting to malleable student-age minds while engaging in, as his people called it, a “conversation about community organizing and civic engagement.” Make no mistake about it. This is about teaching the upcoming generation, loud as it already is about all topics that offend, to get even louder, even Leftist Prouder, and to — here’s the gist — use that Leftist

A Chicago artist has finished his mural of Michelle Obama in a colorful image that features the former first lady as an Egyptian queen. The painting by artist Chris Devins was completed Friday on the southeast corner of Chappel Avenue and 74th Street in South Shore. That´s two blocks from the former first lady´s childhood home at 7436 S. Euclid Ave. and across the street from Bouchet Elementary, which she attended when it was known as Bryn Mawr School. "I wanted to present her as what I think she is, so she´s clothed as an Egyptian queen. I thought that was appropriate,"

Outraged Muslims are reportedly planning a May 1 demonstration at the Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington. The company is under fire after several Muslim security guards demanded time and space to pray five times a day, while on the job. The guards contend in a lawsuit filed this week that the subcontractor who employs them does not appropriately accommodate their faith and retaliates against those who speak out. The Service Employees International Union and the guards allege that Amazon grants high-earning tech workers conference rooms to pray in, but they do not provide the same accommodation for contracted security officers

A Harvard University office devoted to LGBT issues reportedly has issued a flier telling students that gender identity can change as frequently as “day to day.” The flier from the Ivy League schools BGLTQ Student Life office, headlined “Get the facts about gender diversity,” informs readers that “Sex assigned at birth and gender identity are not necessarily the same,” Campus Reform reported Thursday. The flyer adds that “gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, hormonal makeup, physical anatomy, and/or how one is perceived in daily life.” The document also seems to categorize speech that challenges or disagrees with transgenderism as “violence.” “Transphobic misinformation is a
