Kaepernick Files Grievance Against
NFL Owners, Alleges Collusion to
Keep Him Out

Legal Insurrection, by Mary Chastain

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 10/16/2017 5:48:07 PM

Former NFL quarter Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance against NFL owners because he believes they colluded to keep him out of a job due to his protests during the national anthem. Kaepernick first protested in the 2016 preseason when he took a knee during the national anthem. He claimed he protested against racial injustice across the country. The protests took off, with many players following his lead.Kaepernick hired criminal defense lawyer Mark Geragos, who has represented Michael Jordan and musician Chris Brown. CBS Sports reported this statement from Geragos: We can confirm that this morning we filed a grievance under the

Comments:
Mark Geragos. Oy. Hack “celebrity lawyer”. Not exactly first rate. I remember when he publicly insisted that he’d present receipts for all of the items his client Wynona Ryder was charged with shoplifting. Never happened. Ask Wynona how that came out… Michael Jackson (molestation), Chris Brown (assault of Rihanna). And so forth. He was always a joke in Los Angeles.

A read of the article gives us some independent opinions from a few team coaches. He’d have maybe been OK as a backup but not as a starting quarterback. Others did not want to be involved in his protest kerfuffle.

Bottom line is the bottom line:

The NFL is a business so therefore the 1st Amendment does not apply to it. Another example? The New York Times changed its social media policy, even for their employees’ personal Twitter and Facebook accounts. Look, if your actions have a negative affect on a business then that business will do what it can to save itself. Without a profit, it cannot function. Without a profit, these athletes cannot make the millions they receive. If you have baggage in your past, any business will take that into consideration when considering you for a position.

He has filed the grievance now he has to show hard proof. Claiming he is one of the better quarterbacks is not proof. He needs to provide transcripts or other evidence about phone calls, memos, meetings between owners and or the league that say they are going to keep him out of the league. He is basing his entire claim on the fact that he has not been hired and that is proof of collusion. I think it is proof that 32 men decided independently that he is not worth the disunity he would bring,

Didn´t he start most of the games for the 49´s last season, and was terrible???

Vince Young was much better, and he never really got another shot after Tennessee.

Sorry, Colin, but affirmative action doesn´t really work when grown men are getting paid millions of dollars to play a boys game...

If the NFL had not encouraged this behavior, if he and the team had been fined, this would not be happening.
They had a false choice between their current good business, and some phony social justice. They chose poorly and now they will have neither a good business or real social justice.

He thinks that the USA´s laws make him ENTITLED to that income, even though he sucks and customer dissatisfaction would make hiring him the worst business decision since New Coke. But still he hates the USA because we aren´t nice enough.
I wonder how nice we need to be to make him tolerate us?

Kaepernick is not an NFL QB. Athletic ability got him thru his first two seasons. But to be an NFL QB you need more. 90% is between the ears, e.g. Tom Brady. He was stupid to ask for starter money. Every team in the league knows he´s limited from the pocket.

Are you better than others under contract, I believe you are, but not enough to offset your self destructive behavior. No collusion added, no Russians were harmed in the delivery of this note.

Actions have consequences. Kaepernick brings a lot of baggage and turmoil, esp with his black girlfriend. As I recall a team was looking seriously at him until she called the team coach and owners plantation owners. Who wants to have to deal with an American hater and his big mouth girlfriend.

Hmmmmm...What´s really sad is that leftists generally don´t like football. And they don´t care at all that they´ve been successful in destroying a successful business that used to be fun for fans. First the suits about brain injury (of course the players brains were more likely to be injured than non-players, every part of their body is more likely to be injured than those of non-players, it´s a brutal contact sport, and brains are delicate), and now the protests. The left doesn´t care, they leave every area they get involved with worse than it was when they began. Sad that so many players don´t understand that the left is just exploiting them, like the left exploits anyone they can exploit. Meanwhile, the players can´t even verbalize what it is that their protest meant to accomplish or what would possibly satisfy their unfocused criticisms of our country. The whole thing really is, to use a liberal expression, sad. Lose lose lose. And Kaepernick is just a dope. Whose good football days are long gone.

I´m watching this closely as a test case. In the 1970s, the Cowboys, with their fancy computer models that were emulated by GMs across the NFL, colluded to keep me from my entitled position as a starting NFL defensive end. Instead, their obvious size discrimination made Ed "Too Tall" Jones a household name at the position. I could have been Rock "Too Small" Geoman on either the Cowboys or with one of the other 29 teams of that era. Anti-size discrimination and de facto evidence of collusion.

Ok a back up player with 1 win and 10 losses. Goes psycopolitical then walks away. Now he’s claiming everyone is coordinating their decisions to not put him on a team roster? Maybe I’m missing something here. Maybe move to Denmark and sign up for free health care and college and get a five hour a day job with retirement guaranteed. It’s a socialists dream land where everyone is brainwashed from birth that big government provides all you need for being happy. No police brutality no racial oppression and everyone makes the same amount of money and pays the highest taxes on Earth. Just what you’ve been dreaming of and only a short one way plane ride to get there. Plus almost all of the women are blue eyed blonds. Dude what are you waiting for! The one thing they didn’t tell you is the two biggest problems in the country are suicides and alcoholism. But really it’s your kind of place.

WASHINGTON — Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has refused to answer a broad array of queries from the House Intelligence Committee about his time working for President Donald Trump, leading the committee chairman to authorize a subpoena. The developments Tuesday brought to the forefront questions about White House efforts to control what Bannon tells Congress about his time in Trump’s inner circle, and whether Republicans on Capitol Hill would force the issue. The congressional subpoena came the same day The New York Times reported that Bannon, a former far-right media executive and recently scorned Trump adversary, has been

Time, further questioning, and a host of inherent contradictions will eventually bring more sunlight upon the authorship of “The Dossier”. Additionally, how it was used by the DOJ/FBI in gaining FISA-702 query and upstream data surveillance approvals, what the media calls “FISA Warrants”, is soon to reach sunlight. It’s unavoidable. In addition to the absurd claims debunked within the dossier, a significantly under-discussed aspect is the actual authorship. Fusion GPS claims Christopher Steele wrote the memos which were assembled into the “Clinton Dossier”. However, there are numerous mistakes within the documents which no intelligence expert would ever make; including the repeated

[Hi Glenn, Jim, Andy] Back-story – There are two central components: *First, corruption within the DOJ and FBI that included their use of unlawful use of FISA-702 exploits; and *second, how that intelligence information was extracted, passed along to those outside government, repackaged, and reconstituted into the “Steele Dossier”. The finished, albeit sketchy, intelligence was later returned to the FBI to request lawful FISA court

Twitter’s mission statement is to: “Give everyone the power to create and share ideas and information instantly, without barriers.” On Thursday, Project Veritas released a video showing Twitter engineers boasting their use of “shadowbanning” to curb conservative speech. No amount of “deceptive editing” accusations or “out of context” arguments can contradict the tale of the tape. The engineer lays out, in unedited detail, the process of shadowbanning—which consists of Twitter allowing a post to exist but limiting its reach by hiding it from view, thus ensuring that no engagement occurs.

A federal appeals court upheld the state of Tennessee’s 2014 vote in favor of a ballot measure that removed the right to an abortion from the state’s constitution. The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld the ballot amendment known as Amendment 1 — which won by a 53 percent margin — by a 3-0 opinion. According to the Tennessean, the measure added language to the state constitution that reads, in part: “Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion.” Eight voters who opposed the measure — including the former chairman of the board of Planned Parenthood — challenged the

In 2010, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) advocated on the Senate floor for ending the process known as “chain migration,” whereby newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S., a term that he now claims insinuates racism. While asking Congress to pass the expansive and failed “DREAM Act” amnesty, which would start by legalizing millions of illegal aliens, Durbin touted the fact that the legislation at the time would have ended chain migration, preventing newly amnestied illegal aliens from bringing their extended family members to the U.S. “The DREAM Act would not allow what is known as

In the wake of President Trump’s “shithole” comment (which may have been misreported), CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked a predictably leading question of Republican “strategist” Ana Navarro on his show Thursday night: “[I]s there any other way to interpret this comment other than being just racist?” Navarro was happy to oblige. After taking a few potshots at Trump’s alleged “pattern” of bigotry, she unloaded: (Snip)Navarro likely hasn’t given much thought to the implications of what she said, let alone examined her premises.

It is curious how close certain seemingly contrary emotions can be. Consider, to take just one example, the feelings of glee and outrage. At first blush, they seem very different. Glee occupies a positive register in the metabolism of human emotions. (Snip) Outrage, on the contrary, is a dour beast. It glowers. It fulminates. It glories in moral indignation, which it eagerly manufactures whenever it is in short supply. And it is there, in the manufacture, affectation, the pretense, of moral indignation that that outrage shades in smarmy gleefulness.

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for “mansplaining” to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a sharp and one-sided exchange Wednesday before a Senate committee. The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century. "Chanel liberated women (after World War I) by dressing them in male fabrics like tweed,"

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s chief medical correspondent, proclaimed that based on President Donald Trump’s coronary calcium scores going back to the previous decade, Trump has heart disease. Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, offered his assessment of Trump’s health at a White House press briefing. “When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn — this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive,” Gupta said. “And if the number gets up

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a

CNN´s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said Wednesday that he believes tests reveal that President Trump has heart disease. Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart." "Steadily, up until just this past week when he had it performed again, those numbers have gone up," he said. "When they get to a certain range ... that means he has heart disease." Gupta then talked about his interaction Tuesday with President Trump´s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr.

Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion. In an email to the Catholic Herald, Ms. Ploumen said that she was “very honoured” by the pontifical medal, which was sent via the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs last month. In an interview with Dutch radio, Ploumen said she views the honor as a

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday condemned President Trump’s combative attitude toward the press and called on Congress to protect journalists worldwide. “Whether Trump knows it or not, these efforts are being closely watched by foreign leaders who are already using his words as cover as they silence and shutter one of the key pillars of democracy,” McCain said in an opinion piece published in The Washington Post. McCain called the Trump administration’s treatment of journalists “inconsistent at best and hypocritical at worst,” particularly when it comes to condemning attacks on the press abroad. McCain cited foreign leaders who have

WASHINGTON -- Senate Republican leaders indicated today that they´re trying to forge a deal acceptable to the White House to save the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, but that they´re not quite sure what the president wants to see. Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) met today with Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.). The same group of negotiators plans on sitting down again Thursday. "We all want to get to a solution here," Cornyn told reporters outside of a closed policy luncheon on Capitol Hill. "But the

U.S. Border Patrol has been accused of causing the deaths of hundreds of migrants a year by destroying food and water supplies left for them in the brutal Arizona desert by humanitarian groups. On Wednesday, two humanitarian groups released a report, detailing how they´ve distributed more than 31,000 gallons of water along dangerous migrant paths in the Arizona desert between 2012 and 2015. In that time frame, they say volunteers have found these stashes of food and water destroyed 415 times - or about two times a week on average. ´Through statistical analysis, video evidence, and personal experience, our team has
