As if you’ve never heard this before but disgraced quarterback Colin Kaepernick is in the news again.
If there was never another story about Kaepernick then it would be too soon, but unfortunately it seems like he and “his team” consistently manipulate stories so that they become national worthy news sensations. His divisiveness is that powerful in American culture.
And Colin Kaepernick or “his team” posted a new video that is without a doubt the most obnoxious and pathetic thing you’ve ever seen.
Colin Kaepernick single-handedly changed the complexion of the league – causing millions of former fans to change the channel during NFL games.
In 2016, the disgraced former San Francisco quarterback kneeled during the National Anthem traditionally played before every major sporting event in America, which predictably caused many to be outraged by his self-righteous antics. Who does he think he is to create such national havoc?
Kaepernick claimed it was a protest against social injustice and police brutality against African Americans but why did he have to disrespect those that have given or put their lives on the line everyday for our freedoms?
Yet, at least no team in the NFL wants him. His camp wants to perpetuate this notion that the reason why he’s no longer playing in the league is because of “collusion” – a lawsuit he filed against the NFL and ended up settling on. Apparently, he thinks it’s because of that and not the fact he was a below average quarterback in the twilight of his career.
Now, Kaepernick’s still trying to perpetuate that he wants back into the league despite journalists claiming this is all a gimmick because he loves the idea of being a “martyr” than to play in the NFL again.
He posted on Twitter, “5am. 5 days a week. For 3 years. Still Ready.”

So the disgraceful video opens with “Denied Work For 889 Days,” with a “VIA @KAPWATCH.”
The entire rest of the video just shows him working out and at the end he just rips off his shirt to prove he’s in shape.
How narcissistic can you get?
Is he really continuing with the effort to get back into the league? That will never happen. John Elway claimed that he wanted Kaepernick to play for the Denver Broncos as a backup quarterback but scoffed when he allegedly wanted starter money to play.
Who is going to be pay a backup quarterback around $15 million per year when they only see the field if the starter is hurt? This is a hard cap league and there is no way a team would gamble on that when they can allocate that money to solidify many other positions.
This is all a ploy.
Kaepernick has no intention of playing ever again. He loves the idea of being the next Muhammad Ali or Martin Luther King Jr. The embattled former quarterback just needs to pretend he still wants to play or otherwise the gimmick doesn’t work anymore.
Otherwise it seems like he was just using his divisive anthem-kneeling as a tool to achieve infamy. But if he doesn’t act like it’s the collusion as the sole reason why he’s not playing, instead of his talent, then his legacy is irreparably damaged.
