Is anyone else tired of the sad little shit known as Colin Kaepernick?
Kaepernick made a decision to stage a protest while on his employer’s time. That decision had a consequence, he ultimately lost his job and no other team has picked him up.
Does this need collusion? Not really, why would a team owner want the added drama? He is a mediocre player so there is little reason for team to wish to include him in a team sport.
Don’t get me wrong, he can certainly protest any issue that he wants provided that it is during HIS time. I do not support the method of his protest. I do however support that he has the right to do so.
If an actor chose to take a knee at the start of each day filming, how long would directors put up with it? Would they be forced to cast them for films?
If an ER doc chose to take a knee at any time a patient came to see them, would the hospitals appreciate the quality of care? Should they be saddled with the disruption?
If I were to participate in a protest on the clock, I would expect negative consequences. I would also expect hem to follow me for a while. We know that prospective employers can call previous employers and ask what our rehire status is… it is a fact of work life. If the prospective employer does not feel comfortable with the candidate, they will be apprehensive to hire. why is Kaepernick any different?
Perhaps if Colin were to include a clause in his contract to be a PROFESSIONAL player on game days and any other time that he is representing his team or the league including a significant financial penalty for breech he might find a team will to take him on.
He shit in his bed, now he has another decision, clean it up, or get comfortable in it.
