Unable to accept the fact that he’s a has-been quarterback, Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance against the NFL, claiming team owners are colluding against him.
While that sounds possibly plausible, it’s simply untrue. Colin’s star fell during his first year as a starter in the last quarter of the season when opposing defenses realized they simply had to get one big hit on Kaepernick, and he played like a terrified little girl every down after that. You could see the abject terror in his eyes every time he scrambled away from an opposing defender.
Then add onto that his hatred of the police, his blatant racism, and his fake protest built on lies that has cost the entire league tons of money in lost ad revenue and ticket sales, it’s not collusion that is keeping him from playing.
He’s been living in New York and working out in New Jersey, hoping that a team would be desperate enough to pick him up. While some teams have been bandied about as possibly being interested in him, no one has taken that bite.
But now Kaepernick has filed a grievance against the owners alleging collusion against him, not to hire him because of his protest actions.
After remaining unsigned through six weeks of the 2017 NFL season, Colin Kaepernick claims the league is participating in collusion.
According to Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has filed a grievance against the owners for collusion under the latest collective bargaining agreement.
Per Freeman, Kaepernick has hired attorney Mark Geragos to help him in the legal situation.
The media attention because of the protests is believed to be a sticking point in teams hiring Kaepernick.
As former Tennessee Titans general manager Floyd Reese recently explained to 102.5 The Game (according to Jason Wolf of the Tennessean), “You don’t want this circus.”
Who would want it? Fans are not happy with it and they are letting the teams know it.
Anyone who hired Kaepernick would likely feel it from patriotic fans.
But Roger Goodell said that he was not blacklisted. “I believe that if a football team feels that Colin Kaepernick, or any other player, is going to improve that team, they’re going to do it.”
Therein lies the rub. Kaepernick’s talent level simply doesn’t justify all the drama he would bring along with him.
There’s no collusion. It’s just individual owners not wanting to pick up a lot of trouble.
And you can’t force an owner to hire someone if they don’t want to, and it’s not as if poor Colin can claim racism, given the majority of players in the NFL aren’t white.
