Colin Kaepernick continues to be a force in the NFL.
Despite the fact that the embattled quarterback hasn’t played a down in almost a year, he remains a voice of “social change” inside the organization.
And even though he’s no longer a player, he’s coming back to the NFL.
Kaepernick’s infamous kneeling during the National Anthem is now a widespread gesture throughout the NFL.
Many players have carried the proverbial torch to protest the American flag in his honor.
In fact, many consider Kaepernick as the next Martin Luther King Jr.
Well he’s not. Not even close.
Martin Luther King Jr. was an advocate of social change, and Kaepernick’s kneeling during the anthem is the exact opposite.
He also just landed a book deal.
Which makes about as much sense as comedian Kathy Griffin doing the same.
Nobody cares what they have to say because they ultimately disrespected America.
And now, in a completely tone-deaf decision, the NFL has invited Kaepernick to attend the next meeting between players and owners regarding these America-hating protests.
Which is exactly why so many fans are boycotting the organization; they’re a total joke.
“It’s turning into quite the week for former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. First, he lands a $1 million book deal with a high-profile publisher.
Now, the league he filed a grievance against only two weeks ago, has invited him to attend the next meeting between the players and the owners.
On Wednesday, during the league’s weekly conference call, NFL Spokesman Joe Lockhart confirmed that an invite would be extended to Kaepernick and said, “We look forward to him joining the conversation.”
Those meetings are scheduled for next Tuesday in New York.
Kaepernick had reportedly been invited by the Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, to attend the last meeting between the players and the owners.
However, he ended up not attending that meeting, for reasons that remain unknown.
While it’s unclear how the league could allow Kaepernick back into the NFL while he has a collusion case filed against them.
It seems pretty clear that we’re headed or a day when Colin Kaepernick will be allowed to play football again, in the NFL.
The league has surrendered to the players so thoroughly, that they must realize the ultimate capitulation for the NFL can’t merely amount to Kaepernick attending a meeting.
The ultimate victory will be Kaepernick kneeling, or standing (how poetic would that be?) during the anthem in an NFL uniform.
It’s probably just a matter of time.”
It’s time for this glorification of Kaepernick to stop.
Everyone is fed up with the NFL’s antics, to the point where it is now affecting their bottom line. But the NFL just can’t seem to stop biting the hand that feeds them.
