He should probably win. All he has to do is show game film of some of the guys actually playing in real NFL games.

Check out his stats last year (http://www.nfl.com/player/colinkaepernick/2495186/careerstats). There is no way this guy shouldn't be in the league.

He's the one who opted out of a guaranteed deal with SF worth $14.5 million.

That would be like any of us quitting our job tomorrow and then suing all employers who could possibly have a job in our field of work.

I think what people don't get is, would he take the Vet Minimum to be a backup? I doubt it...

I think that much of Kaepernick's offense in 2016 was produced in the 4th quarters of hopeless games, against backup tuba players.

And given Brett Hundley's whopping 39.6 QB rating in relief of Rodgers yesterday, maybe Kapernick NEEDS to be the Packers QB.

His list of misdeeds are as long as your arm, most people think he just knelt for the anthem that is just one of his many stunts that have turned fans, owners and teammates against him.

He was known to mostly concentrate on working out hard for muscles and speed and not spending time in the film room. He also didn't work much on mechanics and correcting his flaws. He also was aloof and didn't interact with teammates like a typical QB would. His current left wing radical girlfriend was the ex of a teammate, that caused locker room issues. He converted to a vegan without dietary supervision and lost a lot of muscle mass.

He wore socks to practice showing cops as pigs, posted a badge on the internet depicting cops as runaway slave catchers. Wore a Fidel Castro shirt and praised him. Girlfriend posted a picture on the internet depicting Ray Lewis and the Ravens owner as slave and master.

That isn't all of it, he is also known as a slow learner and offenses have been dumbed down for him. Also note he put up last years stats while going 1-11, he didn't make many plays when it mattered.

He is better than some of the bottom feeder QBs in the NFL, if he came with out baggage he would have a job, problem is he has enough baggage to fill a 767. He also started his current behavior after dating his left wing radical girlfriend. Do you want your QB to be so weak minded he can't think for himself?

I agree, his behavior is somewhat of a distraction.....that's the reason he's not on a team because he's better than some of these clowns that are starting right now. I would not look at the record (lately), San Fran still hasn't won a game (this year) they are a dumpster fire of a team. They fired a guy that is probably the best football coach in the world. Jim Harbaugh wins where ever he goes. San Fran was a perennial championship contender under him. The 49ers were crap before him and are worse now. If he (Harbaugh) thinks you are good enough, you probably are. The "slow learner" and all that BS is crap the media and people put out there to black ball him for his behavior. That freaking team was one incomplete pass from a SB win. The downplay of his talent is a smokescreen, he's good, his head case beliefs are what got him chased out. The owners can just say they don't want that nonsense on their team, it has nothing to do with "collusion." Football is the ultimate "team sport" the guy needs discipline more than anything else, they don't have time for his nonsense. People that say "he is not good enough" either don't watch the games or are lying to themselves, its his goofy actions that got him chased out.

As for the left vs. right and the players vs. the right....that's all child crap. There were 2 or three guys on each team doing it. So the media and those moronic "sides" do the Broad Brush number on the players....its a joke, there's no such thing as being an individual in a so called free country. Not going to let a bunch of idiots ruin my fun. See ya in Buffalo next week vs. the Bucs! The whole thing is manufactured retardedness.

Sorry, but it's not the same at all. NFL contracts are not guaranteed. The only reason that he opted out is because the 49ers would have released him. Opting out before the release gave him, at least theoretically, a head start on trying to find a new team for this season. Theoretically...

The bigger component of the filing is that if there is proof of collusion against any single player, it can void the entire CBA.

Clear and convincing proof is going to be a huge lift for Kaepernick’s legal team but the threat to the league is they give up huge leverage to the players in any hypothetical renegotiation following a finding of collusion.

Probably a nothing burger. But if there were anything to his allegations, the consequences will be much larger than any of the silly red v. blue nonsense it has generated so far.

It will be hard to prove collusion. A player association official stated earlier in the year that there was no evidence of collusion. From Sports Illustrated:

NFLPA assistant executive director of external affairs George Atallah told ESPN in May that there was no evidence of collusion stemming from Kaepernick's inability to find work. http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/football/colin-kaepernick-sealed-nfl-fate-collusion-grievance-article-1.3566332

Many owners over the last months have said publicly that they considered him, but decided that what he could contribute as a player was far outweighed by the distraction and divisiveness he would bring to the team. Openly talking about such matters with the media hardly sounds like collusion.

The NFL collective bargaining agreement specifically says that failure to get an offer from any team does not meet the burden proof of collusion under the agreement.

Bottom-line, it doesn't matter what CK thinks, he failed at what he set out to do. This is what happens when anyone may have a legit beef about society, but chooses the wrong means or venue to express it properly. He has no one to blame for his failure but himself.....And he actually made things worse for society as a whole, not even the slightest hint better...:rip:

From the moment Kaepernick and the Niners struck that agreement, the expectation was that Kaepernick would explore his options. Even if he elects to stay, the 49ers still would have the ability to release him with minimal salary cap repercussions.

Very little was guaranteed.

The 49ers GM, John Lynch, confirmed that the team would have cut him had he not opted out. I should have posted my source when I corrected you. Sorry, but nothing was guaranteed for 2017 if you are going to get cut. He would have had to be on the opening week roster to have anything guaranteed for 2017. It just wasn't going to happen for him with how much he would have been owed.

I am talking about liberalism infecting things where it doesn't belong and didn't exist decades ago like in sports coverage and the school system. When I was in school in the 60's and 70's I had no idea of the political leanings of my teachers and they would not tell you even if you asked. Also back in the day you had no idea of political leanings of a sportscaster either. Now liberalism is spewed excessively in those areas while the right is forced to keep silent or lose their job.

He has a lot more issues than just the starting the disrespect the flag movement. At this point I don't think a team that was a 25th rated QB away from a Super Bowl run would take him.

He still is because the media is still focused on him. The Niners, as liberal an organization as any, knew that his presence meant all the other players having to answer endless questions about him.

The report that he said he would stop kneeling was false. His g/f went on Twitter and was very emphatic about that.

Do a little research, he has done way more than disrespect the flag. Also what his girlfriend does matters as she comments on his issues with the NFL and influences his behavior. She insulted an NFL owner and a future hall of fame player while hen pecked Kaepernick said nothing. He didn't do anything to draw attention to himself until he hooked up with Nessa.

I still don't think his girlfriend matters. Who cares if she insulted an owner? Plenty of people insult owners, including players. Owners insult players too. See the Texans a few weeks ago.

IN all honesty, the nfl owners probably know something you don't.

It's pretty much a fact that Jerry Jones and a few other owners would suit up Charlie Manson if he could help them win, or gain some media attention that isn't terribly negative. Apparently Kapernik simply isn't worth it. I knew a lot of Engineers and Supply Chain professionals that were out of a job b/c they were toxic in their work environments, superiors wouldn't give them a positive recommendation.

Certainly no offense taken. I worked with a child abuser back in the 80s, he was a key team member. VP level knew of his legal problems, just turned a blind eye. After key projects were completed he was let go. He was selling insurance soon thereafter. When he needed references, he was completely dry to the well. No one was going to go to bat for him as talented as he was. He was about 35 yo at the time

Re Greg Hardy. He was seen as a potential game changer. Kapernick is no game changer. Hardy was let go because he didn't deliver + he was a negative press machine after arriving. Lot of bad pub came out of Hardys time here

I'm just B.S.ing/guessing along with everybody else.

I do recall Baltimore offers/rumors that fell through...

Basically I'm wondering out loud if Kaep's agent has made it clear that CK isn't considering any negotiations that aren't greater than a league-minimum guarantee-barren contract. Fair or unfair, something like that could be argued as a difference in market value.

Ray knows where his bread is buttered. With the CK story and some other stories where Ray Lewis has recently used his voice to speak out against athletes, he's been called an 'uncle tom' on twitter/social-media. Probably not fair, although kind of funny. He's also a guy who's been used in the CK debate as a contrast (accused of murder, beat trial with top-class legal team, star in the league)...

From SI


For risking a lucrative athletic career in his prime by staging protests against injustice, Colin Kaepernick has often been compared to Muhammad Ali. Thus, in giving the former 49ers quarterback an annual award named in honor of the boxing icon, Sports Illustrated (https://www.si.com/sportsperson/2017/11/30/colin-kaepernick-muhammad-ali-legacy-award) declared that “no winner has been more fitting than Kaepernick.”


I didn't know Sports Illustrated was now a liberal rag, what a joke. How can you compare Kaepernick a guy who grew up in a middle class Northern California neighborhood in the late 90's and 21 century to a guy who grew
up poor in the Jim Crow south. Kaepernick didn't face oppression a day in his life. As for what his protest cost him, it wasn't much, he was benched for Blaine Gabbert when he started protesting, his play had descended where his market value was in the couple million a year range, he was no longer in his prime either, his prime was his second year, it was all down hill after that.

I'll go with them, not the useless turds who dis-honor them by kneeling to cry and whine about crap. Colin is nothing but a useless turd.

Every third post in the off topic section of this board is complaining abt the current status of the country, and most of the posters are people on the right. You're not mad at him for "dishonoring the flag". Stop fibbing

I don't know why he or others are mad abt it. But "disrespecting the flag" doesn't seem to be a logical reason for being mad about it.

You seem to find something amiss about having more righties than lefties here. Else you wouldn't have written about "complainers" being "mostly on the right." I simply pointed out there are plenty of places to go if you want more left in your online diet.

You wouldn't have brought up their political leanings at all if it wasn't something that bothered/annoyed/perturbed/gnawed at you in some little way.

If anyone wants to know most of the Kaepernick story check out my post #7.
I try to avoid the name calling and condescending comments of people expressing different views toward each other. While both sides seem to do it, it seems it is predominately done by the left. It seems the left just loves to call people racist and ignorant at every turn, pretty sad. I have been called ignorant by a handful here & even by my own liberal highly educated girlfriend of 12 years, and a close friend I have known longer than that.

To all of those calling me dumb, I have repeatedly challenged them to an I.Q. test, including my girlfriend and my long term friend I have known for over 30 years, they all backed down.

What's my point you ask? Stop hurling grade school insults, state your case and stand behind it with facts from an unbiased source.

I thought my point was pretty clear. Given the amount of grievances I see stated here about the country (same thing Kap is doing), much of it from the right, it doesn't make sense when people say they're angry because he's disrespecting the flag. If Kap took a stand at some other point in the game, during a press conference, on a show, etc those claiming he's disrespecting the flag would be complaining about his stand for some other reason. If you have a problem with what he's doing, great for ya, but don't make it seem like its some principled stand in the name of the country's honor - it's about emotion.

Stop lying, I never called you dumb. Find the post where I called you dumb. Saying someone lacks comparable knowledge in a subject is not calling them dumb. You made claims about possibly having knowledge of the components of autonomous vehicles. I asked you to prove it and all of a sudden you clammed up.

Like I have posted before, he has done a lot more than kneel for the anthem.
Even while in uniform at practice he wore socks depicting cops as pigs. Let me asked you this, if you were a business owner how would you feel if an employee, while on the clock and in the company uniform was making political statements without asking for your approval first? Explain how what Kaepernick did is any different than a Denny's waitress wearing a "Vote for Trump" button?

Plenty of others did the same stuff this past year and are still employed, including a few stars. The NFL has let people convicted of killing others play (Josh Brent, Donte Stallworth). But this is somehow unforgivable?

You know as well as I do that it has nothing to do with morals. It has to do with money. Donte Stallworth didn't cost his team and the league at large money. Domestic violence started costing the league, so they started dealing with it harshly. Same and even more so for the kneeling. The league is dealing with it one player at a time, starting with Kaepernick.

The unforgivable part was in costing the league money. Everything else can be forgiven.

You don't see any difference between what Kaepernick did compared to Brent and Stallworth? The long list of what Kaepernick has done is 100% deliberate while of sound mind and body. The other two got behind a wheel of a car while impaired when they should not have. Those DUI's do not define who they are, what Kaepernick does defines him, big difference.

I think it is real stupid to drink and drive, especially if you are an NFL player that could afford to have a limo cart him around 24-7. The deal is I am pretty sure 1/2 the people or more in this country have at least once got behind the wheel of a car when they had a few too many. That does not make it right, but many a fan looks at Brent and Stallworth and says "That could have been me.", so they will give them a second chance.

As far as calling "pig socks" just a sock choice, would it be just a sock choice if a white player had socks with swastikas on them?

It is obvious Kap is going about it all wrong. He needs to start a class action suit (with all minority players past and present) against the NFL, and instead asking for dollar damages, just demand the whole darn thing. The NFL, teams, grandstand leases, television rights, .....

Now Eric Reed a player who kneeled alongside Kaepernick on the 49ers has also filed a collusion grievance against the NFL. How could anyone in their right mind believe they have a right to a job where they can be on the clock wearing the company's uniform while pissing off half the customer base and have no repercussions? You want to protest or whatever you call it do it on your own time.
