Gee, was it something he said?
Colin Kaepernick was just about to have his shot at returning to the NFL.
Well, he had a tryout, anyway.
Considering his last tryout was scrubbed when his own girlfriend slammed the Ravens as ‘racist’ he should be grateful he’s not viewed as too big a liability, whatever his alleged skills on the field may have been.
After a disastrous result in ratings and ticket sales last year, the NFL is probably hoping to put the politics behind them and woo back their fans.
So, what did Colin Kaepernick do to get back in the game? To show he was serious about being a team player and winning a championship? To show he wanted to be the marquee event, and not just a sideshow?
He promptly shot himself in the foot.
Seattle had contacted Kaepernick about two weeks ago to arrange a visit to the team’s headquarters, but after tentative arrangements were made and travel was planned, the trip was unexpectedly scuttled over the Seahawks’ last-minute stipulation regarding Kaepernick’s anthem stance, a source told ESPN.
The source said the Seahawks wanted to know that Kaepernick wouldn’t kneel this season, and he was unwilling to give that assurance to them.
The day after his scheduled workout with the Seahawks, Kaepernick sat for his deposition administered by NFL attorneys in New York regarding the league’s alleged attempts to conspire to keep him out of the league.
What do you think? Would you take him back even without that assurance?
Would you recommend they sign a contract with him if it has a clause that has him benched and forfeiting pay if he kneels?
Is he be ‘dead to you’ as a player regardless of any clauses?
Or maybe the league itself is dead to you.
It’s been a year. Have you cooled off a little, or did the NFL back the wrong horse in this?
