The blatant blackballing of
Colin Kaepernick continues

Original Article

Posted By: Ken M., 10/10/2019 5:20:59 PM

On Sunday night, an undrafted rookie from an FCS school may be playing quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Colin Kaepernick may be watching the game on TV. And, yes, something continues to be very wrong with that picture. The NFL continues to blackball Kaepernick, consistently and continuously ignoring his ongoing desire to return to the NFL.

Comments:

Florio is an excellent source for all things football; but IMO, in this post he's ignoring the 800 lb elephant - Our National Anthem.

Two critical points. First, he really isn't that good. Second, he's a known troublemaker. The combo is the kiss of death.

What Kaepernick wants is irrelevant. It is what the paying customers want that matters.

K-nick was a fool. Every year there is a crop of graduates from schools around the country that are eager to take your job, and that is what has happened. K-nick allowed himself to become a pile of rust, and made no coach desiring to invest their time with him, their job being on the line for this loser. And what team wants a player that will empty half the stadium?

The moral of the story - and everyone of this site knows the line - Life is hard it's harder if you are stupid. He had many, many choices to do something for his cause but he chose badly. Why's he complaining? He wanted to use is "platform" to bring attention to his cause. He did. He felt like a hero when he did it. Many of my heroes died fighting for this country and to keep the world safe. He's a cry-baby.

If I'm not mistaken (and yes it happens) I think I read somewhere that he was offered a position with some football team a year or so after his knee bs. He turned them down. He's a spoiled, indulged man who grew up in a wealthy white family. I imagine he is confused but he's also not that bright.

Mike Florio is an alt Lib willingly begging for his corporate teat. Seriously. I'm not trying to be insulting. I am trying to be descriptive of his mind set. There is no reason to repost anything Florio says because the alt-Left has already said it. He is a living, breathing echo chamber of Leftist spin who has infiltrated America's sports psyche.

He might have had some talent as a football player, but apparently knew little about being an American. More time in front of the TV might teach him something, but is doubtful if all he watches is network TV.

The kneeling is one thing but the socks depicting cops as pigs was a bridge too far. He has done this to himself. Any team who signs him would lose half their fans, half the merchandise and would end up with a distraction they don’t need. If some ‘Woke’ team signs him it will be a disaster.

Who gives a flying you-know-what at a rolling donut about his "ongoing desire to return to the NFL." There's lots of guys with a desire to play in the NFL. They don't get to. The fact of the matter is, his lack of talent aside, nobody wants the trouble he would cause, is causing, in or out of the NFL.

Florio has forgotten (or maybe he never figured it out) that all these football 'Heros' are performance cast members of an ENTERTAINMENT company. The whole NFL is one entertainment Company, each team business is a Franchise of the Company. The whole Sports world is nothing more than Entertainment, and this Florio guy is noting more than a coat-tail rider, making a living yakking/scribbling about someone else entertaining the crowd. The people running the company (that is, the NFL as a whole) know that the bottom line is that to make money they have to ENTERTAIN their audience, they have to present what people WANT to see, will PAY to see. A squabble caused by some 'butt-hurt' unpatriotic SJW (who has already made million$ throwing a ball to entertain people) is not what people want to see, and is not what people are willing to pay money to see. The player (cast member) in question has, through his unpatriotic conduct, demolished his career as an Entertainer. And that's that. Period.

The team owners do not want the distraction this guy would have brought to their teams. They have enough aggravation as it is from running a business and their own players getting political, which I’m sure is leading to empty seats. There are more fans for Trump than you think!

It is amazing what a moron Florio pretends to be: that somehow he can't figure out that when Kaepernick decided to make hating Americans his signature public position, that it did not destroy his attractiveness to customers in any kind of entertainment business. Kaepernick is an obnoxious hater and Florio has decided to join him. Consequences happen.

Kaepernick defiantly and repeatedly disrespected the American flag on national television. No team owner wants to put up with that. Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich was fired for having supported the anti-gay marriage initiative in California. Roseanne Barr was fired for a racially offensive tweet. Don Imus was fired for calling the U-Conn women's basketball team "nappy hos." Would this writer be equally appalled that they were all blackballed?

A mediocre player on his best day. A lot of desperate running around after he messed up plays he could not remember. He is the poster boy for a big mouth trying to cover up his lack of ability. IF he had any skills someone would have picked him up, issued a 'he's focusing on the game' statement and played him. Bottom line he is a loser not worth the effort to design an offense that could try and make up for his many shortcomings. The writer of this nonsense is a proven fool and typical leftist liar.

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that a federal judge granted seven additional depositions, three interrogatories and four document requests related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private, unauthorized email server. Hillary Clinton and her former top aide and current lawyer Cheryl Mills were given 30 days to oppose being deposed by Judicial Watch (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)). The court rejected Justice and State Department arguments to protect Clinton and the agencies from additional discovery and ordered agency lawyers to respond to Judicial Watch’s questions about their knowledge of the Clinton email issue.

Only “a thinner and thinner slice at the top” is succeeding, Ms. Warren insisted. Everyone else is failing.

Those themes were a mix of traditional Republican positions (tax reform, deregulation, conservative judges, military strength) and a populist agenda (draining the swamp, trade, immigration). Mr. Trump spent much of Tuesday night highlighting the promises kept and the resulting prosperity, while vowing to complete those items that have had a rougher ride—the border, that China deal, health care. He threw in a few new proposals at the end, like eradicating AIDS in America and a mission to Mars. But broadly the president’s message was this: Give me four more years to protect and finish the plan.

Now the president has escalated his attacks even further, accusing the Times of a crime so grave it is punishable by death. On Saturday, Mr. Trump said the Times had committed “a virtual act of treason.” The charge, levied on Twitter , was in response to an article about American cyber incursions into the Russian electrical grid that his own aides had assured our reporters raised no national-security concerns. Few paid much attention. Many news organizations, including the Times, determined the accusation wasn’t even worth reporting, a sign of how inured we’ve grown to such rhetorical recklessness.

But that’s hard to square. The Justice Department has flooded the committee with information, turning over 17,000 pages of documents, and making officials available for hours of interviews. More telling, the process isn’t over. The department is readying thousands of pages more, and the committee has already scheduled additional interviews. Contempt is usually a way of breaking an impasse; there’s no need for it when an agency is cooperating. So why the rush? Mr. Cummings’s vote is the left’s latest, desperate effort to get the Supreme Court to stand down from an imminent ruling over that same census question.

Asian Americans are being routinely discriminated against, throttled in their admissions, despite their statistically higher performance in both coursework and pre-college entrance exams. Similarly, wealthy Americans are being persecuted and penalized, under the guise of equality, for their attempts to circumvent the admissions process.

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s performance at CNN’s LGBTQ Town Hall may not have been filled with his usual gaffes, but there were plenty of head-scratching and simply awkward moments.The Democratic presidential candidate was one of nine 2020 contenders who spoke on LGBTQ issues with CNN’s Anderson Cooper at Thursday’s Democratic presidential town hall, making several cringe-worthy impressions with viewers as he joked about coming out and reminiscing about “gay bathhouses and ’round the clock sex."(Video: CNN) Biden told the audience at the outset that, as all of his opponents support LGBTQ rights like himself, the differences between them would be manifest in each person’s “degree of emotional concern.”

Shepard Smith was the worst thing on Fox News not because he was an anti-Trump leftist, but because he lied and lied and lied, claiming he was not. There are plenty of anti-Trump leftists on Fox News, and that’s a good thing. It is also to the eternal credit of Fox that, unlike its competition on the far left — CNN and MSNBC — Fox actually airs a legitimate diversity of opinions on the issues of the day, most especially President Trump. That was not Shepard Smith. No, rather than come out of the partisan closet,(Snip) he chose to hide like a coward behind a shield of objective truth,

California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom signed 15 gun-related bills into law Friday, tightening the state's already-stringent Second Amendment restrictions. One of the bills, which expands a so-called "red flag" law to allow co-workers, employers and educators to seek gun violence restraining orders against firearms owners they fear are a danger to themselves and others, was vetoed twice by Newsom's predecessor, Jerry Brown. Newsom also signed a companion bill allowing the gun violence restraining orders to last one and five years, although the gun owners could petition to end those restrictions earlier. The bill also allows judges to issue search warrants at the same time as they grant the orders.

Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom has approved some of the strictest gun laws and gun seizure powers in the U.S. Friday, signing into law 15 different pieces of gun legislation. Newsom has reinforced a “red flag” law that enables educators, employers and co-workers to inform on gun owners and request that a restraining order be placed on them — if they are believed to be a danger to themselves or society, according to the Associated Press.(Photo) The bill was deemed to be to extreme even for Newsom’s predecessor, former Gov. Jerry Brown, who was also an enthusiastic advocate of gun control. Brown vetoed the legislation twice.

President Donald Trump responded to Shepard Smith’s unexpected Friday afternoon resignation from Fox News in much the same manner he’d responded to former Utah Rep. Mia Love’s tragic defeat in the 2018 midterm elections.“Is he leaving? Oh, that’s a shame,” he said dismissively when asked by media conspiracy theorists outside the White House specifically about whether his administration had engineered Smith’s sudden resignation (to be clear, the resignation was voluntary).After Love lost her reelection battle last year, Trump responded just as dismissively, saying, “Mia Love gave me no love and she lost … too bad.
