I agree with this... If you're awesome then people will put up with your ****. The problem is he has been playing like an average quarterback and nobody will pay you millions and put up with your baggage at the same time.

He needs to accept he is tainted in the NFL and head to Canada, try to make a comeback there. Maybe with a couple of good seasons away from the public eye he can get over the mess he made.

The sentiment behind the protest I got.
The protest itself, I didn't really care for... and, IMO there is a whole can of worms to open if you want to dig into a lot of it
--America offers your the freedom...
--Pledge of Allegiance...
--What do the anthem and the Pledge of allegiance really conflict with based on religious grounds ..and others... when they are in essence what the freedom you have is based on-- does not saying them mean you are not for your freedoms?
--How the US was founded, who founded it, the take over from the Native Americans..
-- Yeah, tons of baggage that get into a loaded argument no matter what side you come down on

Then you get into the player's performance itself... after Harbough and his regime left Kapp has been a fraction of his former self... and really hasn't shown to be back on track to get back to where he was....

Yeah. Probably so. As it is, he doesn't understand he is an entertainer so he shouldn't go giving the middle finger to his paying customers. He's not worth it.

Someone stepping on my grass is a more egregious violation than a guy sitting and then correcting himself and kneeling before a football game. He's put his money where his mouth is on more than one occasion. Jackie Robinson stated that he could never stand for the national anthem as well.

Kapernick's world is not Jackie Robinson's world.

Yepper. Free to take a stand but others can too. Maybe should've stuck to "playing" football and leaving politics off the field. He's been Kaepernicked. At least now he can kneel all he wants...

and that's what it comes down to....once you start pining about things outside of your control, that bug in ze head starts to ring, "hey ding dong, stfu and do what you're getting paid to do."

it is at that point it becomes akin to the "yips" in golf....

dem's done.....

If Colin Kapernick was any good, NFL teams would take the risk. The problem is he sucks

I hope someone signs him just so I don't have to listen to the 50 plus female crowd on my Facebook Friends list pretending their boycott of the NFL is what left him without a job, when they have never watched the NFL period to begin with.

He is a putz. No one wants to associate with him.

His "protest" was a farce. The reason he was originally sitting his ass down and not standing was because he was getting benched in the preseason in lieu of the new guy. When he got called out for sitting, he came up with the fake reason.

NFL teams are getting smart. They realized what damage this bozo did to the league last year.

So my question to Kapenerick is this: Have blacks suddenly stopped getting oppressed that you dont need to protest anymore? Or is it that you're ok with them being oppressed when it starts affecting your one-percenter paycheck?
