Column: QBs cashing in _ except
for the unwelcome Kaepernick

Associated Press, by Paul Newberry

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/17/2018 9:23:29 AM

As free agency kicked off the start of a new football season, the NFL sent a clear message to anyone paying attention: Colin Kaepernick, you´re still not wanted. Probably not ever. Oh, and while we´re at it, it´s pretty clear the owners have every intention of clamping down on any other players who tries to carry on Kaepernick´s legacy. Rattled by another big dip in the television ratings and an increasing number of empty seats, the league seems determined to banish peaceful protest from the playing field. While it´s quite a stretch to say those trends are intimately related —

Comments:
Awww, poor baby. This guy is feeling so sorry for the worthless racist Kaepernick. Kaepernick deserves every bit of the scorn and rejection he is receiving. He even infers that the drop in viewership was not related to the horrific behavior from those racists in the NFL. Amazing.

Contd. FTA: "Since Kaepernick is the one who got this whole thing started by having the audacity to silently kneel during the national anthem to protest racial injustice — the nerve of that guy! — his career could very well be over.

Never mind that he´s undoubtedly more talented than many of the quarterbacks who still have paying jobs."

Seriously? Kaepernick is more talented? I don´t know what that guy is smoking but he´s clearly deranged.

Also what owner will hire Kaepernick while he has an active lawsuit against the owners with a charge of collusion to keep him out of the league. AP presents a sob story in lieu of the facts.

What is really shocking is that all of the pure nonsense spouted by the reporter in this article is doubtless what he thinks and what his pals in the sports news community think and say to each other. Either that, or they are all too cowed by political correctness to tell the truth. Thanks to Leftists we are increasingly living in a dual universes, one of reality, the other the one imagined by the Left.

Too little, too late. We already found out black players hate white folk, our country, our military and our police. That, in itself, made it easy for us to turn off ALL of last season, including the SB.

Kaepernick is damaged goods. Every year that goes by, he gets farther away from a return. The only person who doesn´t see it is him. The article below explains it all.

Kaepernick insulted NFL fans who paid to watch a football game, not a ill-conceived protest that had nothing to do with football.

In response, NFL fans ceased to buy tickets and refused to watch televised games.

For that, this writer finds Kaepernick to be a hero?

Protesters are free to rent a stadium or auditorium in which to stage their protests. See how many attendees they draw.

The protesters abused the fans, plain and simple.

Kaepernick - Bad distraction

Tebow - Good distraction.

Both are distractions in NFL eyes and they are gone.

I don´t agree with NFL ideas, but this is nothing about Kaepernick´ politics,. He is a disturbance to the game just as Tebow was.

Teams pay a lot of money for the QB position, 25-30 million per season for a starter and two back ups. Kirk Cousins just signed with the Vikings for 28 million per season, all guaranteed. It´s crazy. If Kaepernick was willing to sign for 4-5 million to be a back up he might have takers. He thinks he´s a starter. The guy already made 33 million off the NFL. I don´t know why the media keeps his name out there.

The reality of football is that there are many players graduating from college every years that are going to take your place. In the NFL, it is best to enjoy it when you have it, because when it is gone, that is it. Kaepernick is finished.

If the NFL would have sat on Kaepernick in the
beginning (nipping it in the bud) they would have been respected. They shied away from what Kaepernick was doing with the knee down for whatever reason. My guess is they didn´t want to upset the black community or BLM. Instead they upset ALL the fans which left their stadiums have empty and their ticket sales sliced in half. If they have a comeback it will not happen for a few years. They hurt country loving and God fearing fans.
Losers!!

It’s simple. Kaepernick will cost the teams and league more than he will earn them. He’s a bad investment with a tremendous feeling of entitlement, a Jesus complex, pointless anger and very little smarts. In short, a royal pain and a nut. And not only a nut but a nut who costs a fortune to support. Also, after reading the article I found myself wondering if there’s a whiter name than “Richard Sherman.” Oh. Possibly “Colin Kaepernik.” Or “Richard Sherman, Jr.”

Dear Associated Press: The objective is to play football and entertain the audience. That is the way to make money. Protests do not draw an audience, especially protests that insult the Flag, white people, and the President.

Why don´t you (AP) hold peaceful protests in your headquarters each week and devote your coverage to that?

The NFL is praying that we will accept Kaepernick as the sacrificial scapegoat, forget that not only did the black players disrespect the flag and the country but they clearly told the mostly white fans what they really thought of them. We are supposed to just come back, buy the outrageously priced tickets and snacks or sit by our TV sets for four hours a couple of days each week and watch their sponsors so the sponsors can pay the teams their millions. I´m not from New York but the best response I have is FUGGETABOUDIT. The NFL will die before the fans return because the Golden Goose has flown.

Death was knocking on the door of the NFL the first time Kaepernick sat on his butt. It amazes me that the owners of the NFL could be so intensely stupid to allow this "activity". Apparently brain damage is rampant in the ownership and management of all the NFL teams. I won´t miss you.

The rhetorical attacks on incoming National Security Council Executive Secretary Fred Fleitz (the author’s former colleague) have been shrill and ineffective. Conservatives have rallied to Fleitz’ defense, bolstered in part by Fleitz’s long history of work as a Central Intelligence Agency analyst, State Department official, and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence staffer, along with his solid reputation working on Iran and nonproliferation-related issues. According to Trump administration insiders, the White House blames Obama allies and Iran deal advocates for ginning up the non-controversy, and there’s no indication of a willingness to surrender the scalp of a long-time national security

Peter Strzok, who was pulled off Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s investigative team last year, played a more central role than previously known in both the Russia and Hillary Clinton email probes, a lawmaker familiar with the matter told Fox News Tuesday. The lawmaker´s assessment of Strzok´s role in both investigations was based on the most recent records and testimony, including a closed-door interview with FBI espionage chief Bill Priestap. Priestap was interviewed Tuesday as part of an ongoing joint investigation by the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. Priestap was Strzok´s supervisor and oversaw both the Russia and Clinton investigations.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is making plans to move the headquarters of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) out of Washington, D.C., to a city in the West. The federal government owns 640 million acres in the U.S., or roughly 28 percent of the nation’s entire landmass. The BLM manages 248.3 million acres of public land, more than any other agency, according to a March 2017 report by the Congressional Research Service.

CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Friday that his agency will not arrest a man deputies say shot and killed another man during an argument over a handicap parking space. The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia. First he performed a pathetic ritual of subservience before Vladimir Putin, standing beside the Russian leader — after a private meeting between the two, which no aides were permitted to attend — and dismissing the copious evidence of a Russian attack on the 2016 election in deference to Putin’s word. Then we learned that Putin had suggested that we make Americans available to the Kremlin for questioning, including Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, in exchange
