    You can kneel during the national anthem to protest things. That's your right. But your employer doesn't have to keep you around. What has Colin done since then to actually help anyone? Somebody please enlighten me. He had money and fans and influence. How did he use them to make a difference? I just don't understand any of his tactics. When he seemingly wants to play again, he acts almost like a different person. He projects so much negativity, and he wants the NFL to be in his corner? Doesn't he know how the world works? I had sympathy for him, but now it's gone. This is almost laughable.

    im sorry but when you paint a target on your back and stand against everything that america stands for you then lose the ability to whine about the consequences. freedom of speech isnt freedom from consequence. you should have just kept you OPINION to yourself and did your job.

    I love it. Instead of getting picked by a team, the person he was throwing the ball to ended up getting picked by a team. This is why we the people say, K, if you want to play football, go overseas, because no one here wants to deal with your bull sheet.

    First of all this is not Colin”s company so when he is on the clock and at work he just can’t do whatever he wants to do, second, there is a place and time to protest for good cause and on the job when there is many replacements is not the place. Third let’s get some of our Black voices to lead a parade on stop Black on Black crimes and killing then is feel like we would have a platform to stand on with Police Brutality I just don’t like the fact that we think that we can kill our Brother but the Police officer can’t..... Let come together stop the main one Black on Black and then we can focus on the outsiders?

    I usually don’t agree with SAS, but I do agree with most of this stuff. I don’t agree, however, that CK was blackballed. His skills and his methods both deteriorated at the same time. No one wants either.

    Kaepernick is the ultimate opportunistic capitalist... He makes way more from Nike, settlements, and being a victim than being a dime a dozen third string quarterback

    I'm not in the military but my Dad was, he served during Vietnam. I have all the respect in the world for our military and this guy on the other hand has and shows none. He deserves nothing in my opinion.

    Wait.....Who's Colin Kaepernick? That's how fast he became nothing. Not that I agree with anything he stands for but if you want people to hear your concerns, you have to stay relevant. He could have used the NFL as a vehicle to get his
    point across. Now he can preach on street corners.

    playing in the NFL is a privilege not a right...... call any other owner or employer a "slave owner" ( which is basically what he did by wearing that tshirt ) during an interview and they are not even going to talk to you.... my opinion is he is right where he belongs which is on the outside looking in........

    The NFL lost millions of viewers because of Kap and their handling of the situation. Me included. I will never go back to watching the NFL as long as they keep giving a platform to Kap.

    NO he does not deserve another shot at the NFL. He disrespects this country a country where he has freedoms to do what he does. Make millions throwing a ball. Sick of hearing about this rude little boy.

    he wants the nfl and roger goodell to stop running and yet the nfl offers and organizes a private workout for him?! How does that make any sense? Geez kap, this is embarrassing & martyrdom at its finest.

  • Dude Ster

    I think Collin changed venues because he was unable to "own" the video footage of the workout at the primary location,
    but he could at the secondary location (who knows why -- maybe he saw value in selling it to Nike or something). I think he
    learned or concluded this too late and hence the "last minute" aspect of the change. The agreement of the practice location
    and ownership of the video footage rights should have been agreed by both parties long in advance.

    If he really wanted to get back into the NFL he wouldn't of behaved like this. He is simply reinforcing his beliefs and that is his prerogative. And he is doing a good job.

    Kap is the perfect example of a man that had everything handed to him, and only learned to play victim when things didnt go his way and never take responsibility but blamme his mistakes on others...1st of all he shouldnt had a second chance...but since he did...acting like "the A-side" and that he was making the teams some huge favor for letting them in his workout is not only unprofessional but stupid af...
