Colin Kaepernick, like Robert Mueller, is pursuing a clear cut collusion case.
Mueller is targeting Trump and Kaepernick is now pursuing a Trump like organization: the NFL.
Kap has brought a lawsuit against the league for colluding to willfully and maliciously deny him an employment opportunity. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will be deposed and asked to turn over all cell phone records related to the case. Other league officials and owners will also be put under oath and asked to turn over records including Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, San Francisco 49ers owner Jed York, Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen and Houston Texans owner Robert McNair who recently made headlines when he stated that “we can’t let the inmates run the prison” in reference to allowing the protests against police brutality and racism continue during the national anthem.
The fact that McNair said this is awful and appalling. But it’s equally bad that the man who was the chief instigator of these demonstrations is being shut out of a job that he should rightfully have. When you look at the numbers and the quarterbacks being signed instead of Kaepernick, this isn’t even a close call.
Kap took the 49ers to the Super Bowl in the 2012 season, where they lost in a shootout to the Baltimore Ravens. His career passer rating is a respectable 88 and his touchdown to interception ratio is over 2-to-1. He’s very good on the ground, having run for over 2,000 career yards in the six years he’s played and averaging over six yards per rush. He can definitely still play.
So there’s no reason that he shouldn’t have a job and quarterbacks like Kellen Clemens, Matt Schaub, Mike Glennon, Mark Sanchez and Matt McGloin be signed before him. It’s a joke, it’s clearly a conspiracy to keep him out of the league and he should receive justice in this case in the form of a job or a massive payout.
Until that happens, like Papa John’s pizza, take a pass on that garbage. Boycott the league.
