Report: Kaepernick files grievance
against NFL owners for collusion

MSN Sports, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 10/15/2017 5:15:35 PM

Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement for collusion against NFL team owners, reports Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report. Kaepernick has hired high-profile attorney Mark Geragos and is preparing to release a statement about his grievance soon, added Freeman. The free-agent quarterback has remained unemployed since his release by the San Francisco 49ers in March and has garnered little interest from teams around the league. This has caused some to suggest he´s being blackballed for his national anthem protests during the 2016 season. Kaepernick appeared in 12 games for 49ers in 2016, throwing for 2,241 yards with

I notice he is hoping that we will forget his interviews where he said he chose to be unemployed because he thought it helped his message.

He not only voluntarily chose to be unemployed, but his toxic poison is still spreading through the diversity that is now pro sports. Even European soccer is getting in on the act.

The team owners have every right to not take somebody who chooses to take money out of the pockets of the owners of the teams. Wonder how much of his fortune is left after his muslim girlfriend got her hands on him and his wallet.

Suggesting that Kaepernick is somehow blackballed probably got a few of his fellow players snickering about that...

Johnny Manziel won a Heisman Trophy, was drafted by the Cleveland Browns, is a fabulous talent and is also unemployed. What kind of a lawsuit could he file? Colon Kappie had a few good years when the San Fran Sissies were coached by Jim Harbaugh. When Harbaugh left Kappie tanked. He´s a tall dude so maybe he can get a job changing light bulbs. But you can´t kneel and do that.

I don´t get it he can´t possibly be claiming that the NFL isn´t hiring him because of him taking a knee during the national anthem. Half of the current players are doing just that and being encouraged to kneel if anything. Kaepernick isn´t getting hired because he´s a third rate quarterback.

Tesla said it would rather spend money on litigation and “fight to the ends of the Earth” than give in to what it called extortion and abuse of the legal system connected to a recent lawsuit alleging racism at the company’s factory in Fremont, Calif. Tesla earlier this week was hit by a class-action lawsuit by former worker Marcus Vaughn, calling the company a hotbed of racist behavior. That was the latest legal action involving allegations of racism at Tesla. In a blog post late Monday, Tesla sought to contest certain allegations in the lawsuit and said that it takes

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — A major blackout hit Puerto Rico´s most populated region on Wednesday just as the government announced it had met its goal of 50 percent power generation nearly two months after Hurricane Maria struck as a Category 4 storm. The Electric Power Authority said it dispatched crews to investigate why a key 230 kilovolt line that connects the island´s northern and southern regions had failed for the second time in a week. The blackout affected the capital of San Juan and nearby cities and towns along the U.S. territory´s north coast, provoking a groan from people

According to Corrigan, the groping occurred in November of 2003 at an event in The Woodlands, Texas.

He described it as a "slip of the tongue", but said he believed biological sex was defined at birth. The school said it would be "inappropriate" to comment.

For Democrats, signs everywhere suddenly look rosy. They won smashing victories last week in Virginia and other states.

During the week that includes Thanksgiving, 35% of shoppers say they intend to do most of their shopping on Black Friday this year, down from 59% in 2015, according to the analysis released Tuesday by consultancy PwC.

Jeff Sessions is a man in search of a banana peel. When he can’t find one to step on, he supplies his own. Sessions is not a bad man, but he is a bad attorney general, as he demonstrated again Tuesday. By writing to Republicans in Congress just hours before he was scheduled to testify that he was open to appointing a special prosecutor to examine former FBI Director James Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail case and the notorious Uranium One deal, Sessions primed the pump for a really big show. Democrats arrived furious and Republicans gleefully expected an ah-ha moment. Both

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is said to be considering appointing a second special counsel to investigate issues related to former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, former FBI Director James Comey, and the Obama administration. Sessions´ contemplation comes after the House Judiciary Chairman urged him to look into Comey´s handling of the FBI´s investigation into Clinton´s email use, the 2010 Uranium One deal, and the Clinton Foundation. Trump has repeatedly called Sessions a "weak" attorney general and pushed him to investigate Clinton and the Democrats as the FBI investigates Trump and his campaign for possible collusion with Moscow during the 2016

The ´socialist´ doctor charged with cracking Senator Rand Paul´s ribs in a crunching blindside tackle may have harbored a secret grudge against his GOP neighbor for spoiling his lakeside views and ´devaluing´ his home, DailyMail.com can reveal. Rene Boucher, 59, told Paul in the wake of the mauling that he hadn´t been able to sell his $740,000 house for ten years because the congressman´s trees were ´in the way´. It´s believed Boucher was referring to woodland at the back of Paul´s property that blocks the doctor´s views of the picturesque private lake that forms the centerpiece of their upscale gated

When the Washington Post filed its story against Roy Moore last week, we took a cautious line, agreeing with Republican lawmakers who said “if true,” these charges disqualify the GOP´s nominee in Alabama’s special election for the Senate. We pressed Republicans to extract more information from Moore. Since then, plenty more information has emerged. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, after getting Moore’s side of the story last week, withdrew his endorsement of the former judge. A former boyfriend of the chief Washington Post subject, who says Moore fondled her as a 14-year-old after flirting with her outside a custody hearing, corroborated the story. A

Was a 14-year-old girl molested by Alabama Senate Republican candidate Roy Moore, or is she lying? It’s a yes-or-no question. Was a 16-year-old girl sexually assaulted by Moore, or is she lying? Again, it’s a yes-or-no question. Finally, do you believe that there are conditions under which a child molester should sit in the United States Senate? Again, this question is binary. Yet many conservatives seem to be seeking a third answer to all three of these questions, mostly to avoid giving straight answers. Let’s begin with the first question: Did Roy Moore molest a 14-year-old girl?

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Tuesday that the entire U.S. House will now face mandatory training to avoid sexual harassment and discrimination, moving to address the growing national scandal over behavior ranging from the boorish to the criminal. His comments came hours after a House committee held a hearing on harassment. Mr. Ryan said the House will now have a policy of mandatory training for every lawmaker and every staffer. “Our goal is not only to raise awareness, but also make abundantly clear that harassment in any form has no place in this institution,” he said.
