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.
No doubt. HE is just another ******* trying to get some street cred.

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...

Exactly.

People were beginning to figure him out at the end of Harbaugh's time too. He hasn't been very good for awhile now. I think he opted out of his contract too. People are going to blame the kneeling but in actuality. He just wasn't very good after they had a book on him. D coordinators figured him out. It happens.

I don't think anyone is denying his lack of playing ability is the culprit....it's the piling on statements that rub too many raw....sometimes it's better to keep one's mouth shut and focus on the matter at hand relative to the paycheck....

it's ironic how too many - once paid - become the next coming of hey-zeus and believe the masses should follow...fk'n narcissistic bastards is all they are....it's pathetic how culture is evolving on the screen....

Its not even the statements. But the disrespect to the national anthem when he is at a game "working" is a step too far. Lots of Hollywood performers talk a lot. But not very many do it on the stage (looking at you dumb Dixie Chicks).

As others have already said in the thread, Kaerpinick's antics would have been tolerated - grudgingly - by fans and owners alike if he was one of the top 5 or even top 10 QBs in the league. If you are average or worse, your antics will be judged much more harshly. It's no different than work where the top sales guy can take more liberties on the job than the lowest performing person.

National anthem is not part of the actual game play, so it would not be the same as an actor going off script in the middle of the performance and opining on something political. Your analogy would work if the there is a controversial preview segment that would have to be played before the start of the actual movie.

Spike Lee Rips the NFL teams for not signing Keapernick.

Quote:Just Had Brunch With My Brother Colin @Kaepernick7 . How Is It That There Are 32 NFL Teams And Kap Is Still A Free Agent? WTF. Smells MAD Fishy To Me,Stinks To The High Heavens. The New York J-E-T-S Need A Quarterback. Who Is The J-E-T-S Quarterback? Is My Man Joe Willie Namath Coming Back? Crazy Times We Live In. The Question Remains What Owner And GM Is Going To Step Up And Sign Colin So Their Team Has A Better Chance To WIN? What Crime Has Colin Committed? Look At The QB’s Of All 32 Teams. This Is Some Straight Up Shenanigans,Subterfuge, Skullduggery And BS. Ya-Dig? Sho-Nuff. By Any Means Necessary. And Dat’s Da NoFunLeague Truth,Ruth.

He only brought it upon himself. Through his poor play and kneeling.

Whether this existed or not I don't think he'd be getting calls as bad a QB as he is now, it just wouldn't be a story that he's not getting calls.

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.

Quite honestly though since he sucks and wouldn't be signed anyway this was a better career move for him than just being out of the league for just being awful. He's made a name for himself outside of the world of football and made himself a polarizing figure, which is far more valuable than just being forgettable. The true opposite of love is not hate, it's apathy, and if he were just a QB that was good and became bad with no controversy he'd essentially be Vince Young. When was the last time anyone brought up Vince Young positively or negatively?
