I hope he stays unemployed. Let him play in the CFL.
I never liked his protest, there are better ways to make change.However, he's not a good QB. He was a flash in the pan, something that
was successful for a short time until defenses figured it out. An NFL QB needs
to be a passing threat, he was never that threat. And that is the same reason
that he played at Nevada, a school willing to build an offense around an
athlete...traditional schools had no place for that type of offense. So while
his protest might have put additional stress on teams to avoid him they were
already avoiding him due to talent...
This is a great example of the importance of entertainment (it's not). A
great lesson for actors, musicians and athletes alike. Go ahead, make it
political and the same will probably happen to you too. I would like to think I
don't care what your politics are, but in reality, it does matter if you
are in my face with it. I just subconsciously loose interest and don't
watch, listen, etc. It's so easy to change the channel or hit the power
off button. A "brand" is such a fragile and fleeting thing after all.
Please...nobody hire him. I already had to get rid of my 49er stuff. I
don't want to throw away another team jersey because they hired him. Maybe
he and his lefties can go play in Canada. But..Canada might not want him either.
They respect their flag.
Im going to shed a tear for Collin...
I have my opinion - Kaysville, UTI have said it many times, if you
are going to be an average NFL QB, you had better be the PTA president as
It's really a simple equation: (His drama)>(His skill). Teams want skill more than drama. They aren't required by
government to be 'diverse'.
Good. My feeling is the same thing should happen to all other NFL players who
likewise dis the country.
Crooked politicians, and a bias media are the ones fueling racism, bigotry, and
hate. They infected people like Kapernick.The flooding in Houston,
give evidence that many Americans do care for each other. No doubt about it!
In addition to what everyone else has said, no one wants to pay to watch a game
and have it turned into a political tool. Fine for the voting booth but not the
The NFL last year wouldn't allow the Dallas Cowboys to put a decal on their
helmets honoring the 5 slain police officers but allow the anthem protest. I
boycotted the season and still do. Kapernick has his rights but the NFL as his
employer has the right to control his behavior during work a if they don't
and are hypocrites and allow others to honor people who put their lives on the
line I'll boycott again. My team the Seahawks has a player still kneeling
and I'm still boycotting, I took the decals off my truck and don't
wear their shirts or hats. I played high school football and love the game.
Luckily there still is college football go BYU and University of Washington
Worf his roots are in Ghana. Maybe he should go there and start the sport.I hope he never sees the inside of a football field or stadium again along
with all those who are following his example.
I love it when consequences follow actions. Many of us, due to
Kaepernick's silly actions have just stopped watching the NFL and are
watching college football instead. This disrespect has spread to many non-white
NFL players and they should suffer the consequences as well.
We are free to make stupid choices. We just aren't free from the
consequences of said stupid choices. I'm glad he is without a
The law of the harvest is still in effect.
How many of us ,if we embarrassed our employers, by doing something that upsets
our client base, would still have a Job?Just because it is football,
the same logic applies. Screw up at work and you are shown the door.Do your protesting off the clock.He acted foolishly and now
suffers the consequence. Good.
He should be without a country as well! If you want to protest and have people
sympathetic to your cause, there are better ways. Disrespect for something that
most honor and revere will only garner dislike and disdain for both you and your
Our Emotional Quotient is at least as important as our Intelligence Quotient.
You can undo a lifetime of accomplishments in a 30 second rant. Sure we have
freedom of speech. But we don't control the outcome of that speech. What we
say and do will have an impact on our lives.
I wonder if Canadian football would take him?
we are supposed to care about this? There are lots of good flag respecting back
up QB's in the NFL better in phycial talent than Kapernick and partiots of
their country. I would rather here about their progress in the pre-season
especially is they have local ties to the U or the Y.
