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.

Had Jeffrey Epstein not been killed committed suicide, there’s a decent chance he would’ve spilled some shocking information on Bill Clinton and other high-profile, big-name celebrities, in exchange for a lighter sentence. The world will never see that happen. However, more and more information continues to leak about the former president’s relationship to the convicted pedophile and his madam. From The Daily Wire: Former Democrat President Bill Clinton reportedly had an “intimate dinner” with accused child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell in 2014, years after she had been accused of procuring minors for alleged child sex trafficker Jeffery Epstein. The dinner happened at Crossroads Kitchen, a high-end vegan restaurant in Los Angeles, according to a report from The Daily Beast, which noted that several other high profile individuals were there after being invited. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eS8aIa0h25s The craziest things seem to happen to people with dirt on Bill and Hillary, don’t they? On the night Slick Willy spoke at the 2020 Democrat National Convention, photos were released showing him getting massaged from an Epstein victim. And by victim, most likely sex slave. From Daily Mail: Bill Clinton grins with pleasure as he enjoys an intimate neck massage with a young Jeffrey Epstein victim in never-before-seen photographs obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com. […] Clinton traveled numerous times on the dead pedophile’s private Jet, the Lolita Express, socialized with his alleged Madame, Ghislaine Maxwell, and faced a slew of sexual misconduct accusations himself during his years in public life.

ESPN Host: ‘Right-Wing Extremists’ Are the Ones Responsible for Violent Riots We’ve Seen

LOL, this guy…

ESPN’s First Take morning show features two outspoken liberal hosts, Max Kellerman and Stephen A. Smith. Neither man is afraid of talking politics on their sports show, despite Americans constantly telling people to leave politics out of sports. If you’re a boxing fan, you know who Kellerman is. The guy is very knowledgable and knows the sport inside and out. Unfortunately, Max often times lashes out and shows the nation just how clueless he is when it comes to politics. On Tuesday, Max decided to go after right-wingers with a claim so ridiculous that you can’t really do much but laugh.

He’s a character, to be certain. That being said, the former ESPN personality and current Fox Sports talking head has been around all things sports for decades. He knows people. He has connections. According to Skip, Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, who openly supported Hillary Clinton in 2016 and has been wildly critical of President Trump since he first took office, is considering running for president of the United States “some day.” You’d have to imagine based on popularity and his name alone, LeBron would snag quite a few votes – similarly to Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger when he ran for governor in blue California.
