NFL going full Kaepernick
« on: July 03, 2020, 09:16:24 AM »

You never go full Kaepernick

Quote
The New York Post reports:

    According to ESPN, the league will have renditions of “Lift Every Voice And Sing,” traditionally known as the Black national anthem, played before “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the NFL’s regular season gets underway.

    The NFL is also considering other ways to recognize the victims of police brutality during the upcoming season, which is slated to start on Sept. 10. Among those ideas is listing the names of victims on helmet decals or jersey patches, per ESPN.

    The decision comes in the weeks after commissioner Roger Goodell admitted the league fumbled its handling of previous peaceful protesting done by players.

NFL to play the black national anthem before the (white?) national anthem before games this season

Barring injury, with Wilson on the team, does he realistically see playing time?  If he rides the bench is he being repressed?

I don't think he will play.  I think it is just for show.  Nike is paying him to do very little.  If he actually made it on the field and showed how average he is, it would hurt his image.

The oddsmakers are putting forth either Baltimore or Seattle to sign him.

from the article

Nessa Diab compared Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti and Lewis, a longtime face of the franchise, to characters from "Django Unchained": Leonardo DiCaprio's cruel plantation owner and Samuel L. Jackson's loyal house slave, respectively.

Kaepernick's decision to kneel during the national anthem last season, which he said was to protest racial injustice, has gained public support in recent weeks from NFL stars like Aaron Rodgers and Cam Newton.

I was a huge fan of Aaron Rodgers. [Note the use oof the past tense.]

Maybe he used to be a good quarterback, but now he's not. Just like he used to like the 4th, but now he doesn't.

This moron is a guy molded by his girlfriend and other manipulators. If you look up "useful idiot" in the dictionary, there's his picture.

And like many other celebrities who have become addicted to fame he'll do or say whatever he thinks will get him his next fame hit. The further he sticks his foot up his mouth the more media trucks show up at his home.

Some non-whites, apparently, can't bear the thought of whites doing anything that's not about them. It all has to be an elaborate racial plot.

 a lot of people pick on Colin, but he throws better interceptions than anyone in football history!

anyway, I only watched football when i was a late stage alcoholic, once I quit drinking, it quickly became boring.

NFL should hire Kaepernick and send him to a different team every week.  Then he could kneel in every stadium and be in the Book of Records or whatever the heck they call the Book that the Lions are in as the opposing team for every NFL record.

Now Disney

Quote
The Walt Disney Company today announced an overall first-look deal with Colin Kaepernick’s production arm Ra Vision Media. The partnership will focus on telling scripted and unscripted stories that explore race, social injustice and the quest for equity, and will provide a new platform to showcase the work of Black and Brown directors and producers. The first-look deal will extend across all Walt Disney Platforms including Walt Disney Television, ESPN, Hulu, Pixar, and The Undefeated. Kaepernick will work closely with The Undefeated, which is expanding its portfolio across Disney, to develop stories from the perspective of Black and Brown communities.

Disney strikes a brand new production deal for social activist content with Colin Kaepernick, and it gets more woke from there

Only playing it the first week of the year from what I read.  Glad Cleveland is playing away the first week so I don’t have to hear it when I’m in the stands.  As much as I’m tired of all the controversy, I’m still a football fan and will go to games.  I’ve been a season ticket holder going on 6 years now.

As for Kap, he sucks at football so he’s nothing more than a talking point at this time.
