Former NFL Quarterback Colin Kaepernick Just Got Some More Bad News

Somebody get this guy a box of tissues, pronto!

Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick, the infamous former quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, has had his dreams of reentering the NFL dashed into a million pieces once again, as the Seattle Seahawks have reportedly lost interest in signing him to the team.

Kaepernick’s claim to fame is being a raging social justice warrior who launched the whole “take a knee” movement that spread like a bad rash all over the NFL, with teams disrespecting their home country by kneeling during the National Anthem. This was said to be a form of protest against police brutality and racial equality, though that’s questionable.

The move led to a massive nationwide boycott which severely damaged not only television ratings, but game attendance too.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday night, “Colin Kaepernick and his attorneys took depositions in his collusion grievance from Seahawks’ HC Pete Carroll today and from GM John Schneider on Wednesday, per source. Seahawks expressed interest in Kaepernick this off-season, but he no longer appears to be in their plans.”

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has nobody but himself to blame for being unsigned. The Seahawks were willing to give him a fair shot if agreed to stop kneeling, and he reportedly wouldn’t do it. Again, Kaepernick should look in the mirror if he’s looking for somebody to blame for not being on a team.

What Kaepernick and many others around the country fail to realize is that the NFL is a company, a business. They want to be financially successful, and despite not coming out with an official response to the man’s on field antics, it’s been clear from the get-go that what he’s doing is really bad for their bottom line.

The vast majority of people who tune in to a football game are doing so to watch the sport they enjoy, to leave behind the real world for just a few hours and be lost in the glory of competition. The last thing they want is yet more politics. Politics has already oversaturated every facet of existence, sports were the final frontier, the last safe haven as it were.

The enjoyment of professional football comes in the form of being part of a fandom with others who love the same team. This issue has caused a lot of division among football fans and has really strained fandom for many individuals.

Kaepernick didn’t win hearts and minds to his cause, he just stirred up more strive and division, while also managing to explode his career.

Now that’s he’s been rejected by the Seahawks, the chances of seeing him in the NFL are very small. Given the negative impact he’s had, it’s safe to say that’s probably for the best.
