It’s still only the offseason and the NFL just can’t stay out of the news.
The league’s flip-flopping on what to do with the all of the anti-American National Anthem-kneelers has broken through the sports world bubble and crossed over into the American political conversation.
And now one of Colin Kaepernick’s attorneys is making headlines again because of a new “theory” that he has which involves dragging President Trump through the mud.
The guy who started it all, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, is suing the NFL and team owners for colluding together to keep the disgraced athlete out of the league.
Kaepernick’s lead attorney, Mark Geragos, has been promising for two months now that there will be breaking news involving the case “any day now.” But now everyone is starting to realize that he’s just blowing hot air about his case.
And that absolutely includes his insane theory that President Trump and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones conspired together over the rampant anthem-kneeling problem that the NFL has.
Geragos appeared on the Reasonable Doubt podcast on Saturday and said, “The president tweeted about how lame the national anthem policy was. Then Jerry Jones came out and said they’re going to stand during the anthem. . . . The president then retweeted basically an attaboy to Jerry Jones. “
This is basically true except for the fact that he’s intentionally leaving out the reason why the NFL and the Players Association agreed to put the rule on hold for the time being.
And that has everything to do with the Associated Press getting their hands on an amendment to the behavior policy from the Miami Dolphins, which stated that players could receive up to a 4-game suspension for kneeling.
Then in response to freezing the new rule, Jones issued his own policy because it’s his team and he can do what he wants with it.
Geragos continued, “Now, I’m under a protective order, so I have to be very careful as to how I phrase this. But the protective order I take great offense at because I think basically it is muzzling me, for a variety of reasons. If I see a conspiracy that is violating the law, does a protective order mean that I can’t talk about it?”
It depends on how ridiculous or far-fetched the conspiracy theory is because then you’re going down the road of libel and slander. But this doesn’t sound like a lawyer who is very experienced in his craft. And it certainly didn’t sound like it was a rhetorical question either.
But then he busted out the big mamba when he absurdly claimed, “I know what really is going on between Jerry Jones, the president, the anthem policy — why they’re doing all this. And they’ve already tried to admonish me. Whenever I want to talk about something that I think the public should know, that . . . this is a partisan political issue, and I’ve got proof of it, but I’m under a protective order. . . . People don’t actually understand what’s happening behind the scenes with the Cowboys and the president.”
Geragos has been promising this for a long time and at what point are people going to wake up to the fact this is a classic tale of the boy who cried wolf?
He just seems desperate for attention at this point, doesn’t he?
Doesn’t this kind of remind you of how pornstar Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti has acted lately?
Avenatti feeds off of this newfound fame like he’s going to blow the whole lid wide open on something that just simply isn’t there.
These kinds of lawyers are leeches for publicity and they’re using their infamous clients to accomplish that feat.
Don’t believe a word that comes out of their mouths. They need to just put up or shut up about it already.
This new “collusion” theory is just as insane and baseless as the Russian collusion conspiracy theory the fake news media has spent two years fruitlessly trying prove.
