    Cop hating QB doesn't have a job, Leftists are really upset about it.

    Kaepernick was a quarterback who had a couple of very successful years, whose performance then fell off significantly. Last year he began making very political statements and gestures during games, most notably kneeling during the singing of the national anthem, when it is customary for players to stand as a sign of respect.

    This year he is a free agent, and no team has been willing to sign him, because 1. He isn't very good. and 2. He has a lot of baggage, ie, a lot of fans feel politically disrespected by him. It seems probable to me that he has been blacklisted in some sense, meaning there is a t least a tacit agreement amongst NFL team owners not to sign him.

    Finally, it is worth noting that the NFL, which had been a TV ratings powerhouse, has been slipping the past few years. Ratings were down last year in particular, and while by no means is most of it attributable to Kaepernick's antics, a non-negligible portion most likely are due to fan anger at him. Rights to televise NFL games, which are negotiated based on predictions of their ratings, are a major source of NFL revenue. So Kaepernick pissing off a subset of fans is costing the entire NFL money.

    Do you even watch football? He had one good season. He sucks Cutler is way better. No one wants all the drama he brings either.

    So much more concise than I am and right to the heart of it.

    Poetic justice I think. No one wants an idiot on their team.

    Ignorant rich kid in La Jolla thinks he knows something but actually doesn't.

    American nationalists rustled by quarterback who protests for peace and justice.

    His best years are behind him. At best he's a backup QB. @Jim Cozad Jr.

    The NFL is all about ratings and Kaepernick is not good for ratings. It's not a political show.

    1. Not White
    2. Not Rich
    3. Liberal who claims to be fighting for minorities assumes they can't live in a place live La Jolla which is a racist notion.

    If he's good enough, he'd find a team.

    1. He's not that good
    2. He doesn't even have any principles - knees for anthem but can't even vote nor articulate why he couldn't vote
    3. The MSM / BLM are once again getting into hysterics about an issue that 99% of NFL either do not care about or hold a negative disposition toward CK.

    So no. He'd be a negative force - on and off the field.

    1. I never said you were white. You are probably Asian if I had to guess. (The most wannabe white people on the planet).
    2. Anyone that lives in La Jolla (actual La Jolla in a house not UTC is rich).
    3. I'm baffled by your post count and poor grammar skills.

    Look at that backpedal, next you are going to tell me as a white liberal that i don't understand the relationship between blacks and cops because clearly i would support Colin given all blacks think alike.

    This hole you are digging is entertaining

    Why would that be next? Use your brain Mr. Sober. All the accusations you listed are false try again La Jolla.

    Didn't realize someone with the handle "TheStruggle" was so sensitive, and it wasn't an insult.

    Are you guys really this obtuse? If you think Kaepernick was doing that for the good of his people then you need to step out of la-la land. It's pretty obvious that he was just using SJW tactics to stay relevant.

    Him having an easier life than 99.9% of the planet aside, it's really scummy of him to use racial issues to keep his name in the headlines just because his game started to suffer. It's a slap in the face to all of the civil rights heroes that fought for real injustices.

    If he was taking a stand about something related to football I'd see no problem. His shit has nothing to do with football, was disruptive, impacted profit and was conducted while "on the job". Fuck'em.
