Last year, rather than making a name for himself lighting up NFL scoreboards, Colin Kaepernick made a name for himself by constantly being the one getting lit up by both fans and commentators alike when he made the asinine decision to boycott standing during the National Anthem before NFL games.
Why the boycott? When swarms of media hacks flocked to Mr. Kaepernick’s locker after NFL games, Kaepernick would repeatedly share before a national audience that he could not bring himself to stand for the flag of a country that “oppresses black people” the way the United States does.
As one might imagine, the reason Kaepernick cited for the disrespectful protest of a flag so many Americans have fought and died for, did not sit well with many of even the NFL’s most casual fans. Heck, Kaepernick’s reason didn’t sit well with many Americans in general, whether they were NFL fans or not. Some NFL fans even “claimed” to be so “offended,” that they would no longer watch any NFL games until that behavior came to an end.
It’s hard to say there was a direct cause and effect relationship between Colin Kaepernick’s antics, and the fact that the NFL suffered from one of its worst ratings slumps in modern times last season, but it’s hard not to believe there was at least some correlation.
In the following video, Right Wing News discusses how poor Mr. Kaepernick is once again being oppressed. This time, it’s the NFL and its 32 teams that are oppressing Mr. Kaepernick. If you ask him, he might even tell you not one of the 32 teams will hire him because he’s black, who knows? Mr. Kaepernick clearly isn’t the brightest bulb on the tree, but maybe this will be the start of a budding “social justice warrior” career; I hear you don’t need to be real bright for that anyway.
Regardless of what the future holds for this dimwit, as of today, Mr. Kaepernick is just another unemployed loser. Poor, poor, Colin.

It looks like ex San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s anti-cop, anti-American national anthem protest is coming back to bite him in a big way. It looks like no one wants to give him a job!
That’s right, the scumbag is now a free agent and has been unable to score a new contract with another team.
An anonymous general manager from one of the teams in the NFL’s American Football Conference (AFC) said Kaepernick has three major points working against him.
“First, some teams genuinely believe that he can’t play. They think he’s shot. I’d put that number around 20 percent,” he told Mike Freeman at Bleacher Report.
“Second, some teams fear the backlash from fans after getting him. They think there might be protests or [President Donald] Trump will tweet about the team. I’d say that number is around 10 percent. Then there’s another 10 percent that has a mix of those feelings,” he said.
“Third, the rest genuinely hate him and can’t stand what he did [kneeling for the national anthem]. They want nothing to do with him. They won’t move on. They think showing no interest is a form of punishment. I think some teams also want to use Kaepernick as a cautionary tale to stop other players in the future from doing what he did,” he said.
Some NFL executives have even said that he is “an embarrassment to football.”
