I really wish I could remember who said it and exactly what was said. Many of these players may have college degrees, but are still clearly very unintelligent people.
I agree with you 100%!!

The whole shenanigan felt like they were protesting for protest sake rather than to actually resolve an issue.

Two interesting events regarding Kaepernick.

Aaron Rodgers is out for the next 8 weeks or so with another broken collarbone. I didn't see the game, but this SI article suggests Hundley struggled a little as he stepped in and that maybe the Packers should call Kaepernick as Hundley's backup.

The other thing, mentioned both at SI and here at NBC, is that Kaepernick is filing a grievance alleging collusion to keep him from playing. If he proves collusion, that terminates the existing CBA and forces a renegotiation. THAT would be an Iinteresting" event.

I find it highly entertaining that the head whiner is not crying like a baby because his plan backfired on him and he isn't finding the support he expected. He is finding that actions have consequences and his infantile mind can't deal with it. So, let's sue!

"Actions have consequences" cuts both ways. If the owners have colluded and conspired to keep him from being signed (in violation of the CBA), then they should be punished, shouldn't they?

Truthfully, I could care less about him. He never had a problem until he decided to become a one-man army of disrespect. Then his problems began. You want to be the spokesman, then don't complain when the lights shine on you. He was and is a whiny clown. Good luck with his collusion cry!

When it first started, his NFL career was coming to an end, and this "protest" was viewed as his attempt to keep his career alive. I dont really expect his grievance to be anything more than another attempt to keep his career alive, that he knows would have little to no chance of coming back if not for this.

Is the NFL different than other businesses in the sense that they are not allowed to not employ someone who brings a negative outlook on their business? His actions have hurt the entire NFL, so I dont see where he has much ground to stand on. Not that the individual teams, and Gooddell havent allowed it to get out of hand.

Bam!

The day he signs a deal his new team's parking lot will be filled with satellite trucks as far as the eye can see! Their practice facility will be crammed full of reporters asking anyone and everyone the stupidest questions they can. Everyone entering or leaving the building will be accosted by reporters sticking mics in their face.

And if he is not put in immediately as the starter, holy hell!
Any sense of normalcy will be gone until he becomes the starter. Then, if he sucks, the team is stuck with him because benching or cutting him would surely bring the NFLPA, more satellite trucks, and Al Sharpton because of course, any team that cuts/benches him MUST be racist!

This genie cannot be put back in the bottle. FFS it's gone international now with a German team doing it "in support of the American NFL players". All these spoiled bitches do not realize they are only hurting Kapernick's chances of getting on a team by causing all this shit!

If 32 owners and their front office personnel independently decided that signing a QB whose numbers were steadily in decline when he was playing, was reduced to being a backup before he wasn't rehired, and who brings more extraneous distractions than Tim Tebow ever did would appear to be a waste of money and more of a hindrance than help to their teams, then no collusion was present or even necessary. If teams that didn't know enough about him asked people on their staff who used to be on the staff at San Francisco what they thought, that is scouting, not collusion. The only way I could see collusion being proven is if there were official minutes of a meeting of owners where they agreed that nobody would hire him, and I doubt NFL owners are that specific flavor of stupid.

Let’s not forget this idiot opted out of the final year of his contract with the 49ers. He walked away from $14.5 million guaranteed to try and find a better, long term deal.

I have no doubt that some teams have refused to bring him in because of negative reaction from their fan base. But he wouldn’t be the first. Ray Rice is a much more talented player, but he has been damaged goods since the video of him beating his girlfriend.

Maybe, but he did walk away from $16M (I think that is how much) that he could have received from SF for sitting on the bench.

To me this is all about being a good or bad employee. He did all of this on company time and dime, which starts the moment he walks into the facility. He chose to use company time to protest on a national stage. No different than the play-by-play commentators on national TV protesting by shutting off their mics for an hour to support something. They would be fired. Just like a McDonald's cashier standing outside the store with protest signs while on the clock. They would be fired!

Watched a great docu on JtG not long ago. I believe it was one of the 30 for 30 segments on ESPN. That poor guy's life was shattered beyond repair and he died broke and hungry!

Jimmy The Greek was vilified and it cost him is job.

I would like to say most people are apathetic, then again what people CHOOSE to be offended over depends on what news org. is available and how fast they can convey their offendedness (sic) on social media.

I WANT an NFL Team to sign that worthless POS. The League deserves everything they get at this point. As someone mentioned, the Genie is out of the bottle on this.

I've watched all of the 30 for 30 films. Very well made. The newest one (Year of the Scab) features the all picket line crossing Redskins. Eye opening and mad respect for those guys (who also got fucked when the strike was over). Give it a look (Cowboy fans will hate it )
