Just when the NFL looked like it may be on the verge of rectifying its horrifically marred reputation, Colin Kaepernick rears his ugly head instead.
The league itself is likely imploding, at least financially. The sheer number of empty seats and the incredible ratings slouch won’t be going anywhere until owners and administrators throughout the league stand up to their pathetic and overpaid man-children, tell them to protest on their own time, and get back to business. In fact, things have gotten so bad as of late that ESPN’s Thursday night football tradition may find itself going the way of the Dodo.
Now, instead of looking to bring back their former patriotic fans, they could instead be bringing back the twerp who started this entire debacle in the first place: Perpetual benchwarmer Colin Kaepernick.
“Colin Kaepernick’s lawyer Mark Geragos claimed Tuesday that his client will be on an NFL roster within the next 10 days.
“’I think within the next 10 days somebody will sign him. I think somebody’s gonna sign him. I think the NFL has to come to their senses, and realize every day that goes by just proves the collusion case even more,’ Geragos said during an appearance on The Adam Carolla Show.
“You can listen to the whole interview here. The part about Kaepernick signing with an NFL team starts around the 40-minute mark.
“We’ll have to wait to find out if Geragos knows something the rest of us don’t, but it’ll be the biggest news of the NFL season if a team makes the decision to sign the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback.”
The absurd idea that Colin Kaepernick is at the center of some grand conspiracy to silence his political beliefs is incredibly far-fetched to say the least. If the NFL were truly concerned about the circus that Kaepernick brings with him, then they would have amended the league rules to require players to stand of the anthem or face disciplinary or financial action.
In reality, Kaepernick had lost his step and looked sluggish in the weeks leading up to his grandstanding display of disrespect for the National Anthem. As he faced that unfortunate career-ending trend of aging, the shrewd businessman simply adopted this “social justice” persona in order to get his name back on the tips of sportscasters’ tongues.
