Colin Kaepernick just threw a Hail Mary pass against the NFL

The NFL’s internal struggle with anti-American anthem protestors continues.

Unemployed “quarterback” Colin Kaepernick began the protests early last season.

Now, he’s just taken an unusual move against the NFL that has everyone wondering what his endgame is.

Kaepernick just filed a grievance against NFL owners for collusion to deprive him of a job in retaliation for his national anthem protest.

But rather than filing the grievance through the NFL Players Association, Kaepernick hired his own attorney, Mark Geragos to plead his case.



ESPN reports:

The filing, which demands an arbitration hearing on the matter, says the NFL and its owners “have colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick’s leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States.”

Kaepernick’s attorney sent a copy of the complaint to the NFLPA, as well as the NFL and all 32 teams. He tweeted out a statement Sunday saying he filed the grievance “only after pursuing every possible avenue with all NFL teams and their executives.”

“If the NFL (as well as all professional sports teams) is to remain a meritocracy, then principled and peaceful protest — which the owners themselves made great theater imitating weeks ago — should not be punished and athletes should not be denied employment based on partisan political provocation by the Executive Branch of our government,” Geragos said in a statement. “Such a precedent threatens all patriotic Americans and harkens back to our darkest days as a nation. Protecting all athletes from such collusive conduct is what compelled Mr. Kaepernick to file his grievance.

“Colin Kaepernick’s goal has always been, and remains, to simply be treated fairly by the league he performed at the highest level for and to return to the football playing field,” the statement continued.

The statement is hogwash.

It’s important to remember Kaepernick was already unemployed long before Trump called out other players for protesting during the national anthem.

His contract with the 49ers ended in March 2017 and Trump’s call for owners to fire the protestors wasn’t until the end of September.

Ironically, Ray Lewis said the Baltimore Ravens decided against signing Kaepernick after his girlfriend tweeted this racist image comparing Ray Lewis to the house slave in Django Unchained:

So, far from the NFL owners actively “colluding” against hiring Kaepernick, perhaps his subpar play and anti-American antics are what’s kept Kaepernick off the field.

What are your thoughts?

Will an NFL team like Green Bay (who just lost their starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers, likely for the season) get pressured into signing Kaepernick?

  1. Listen & Obey! It’s a job. Stand and be proud, or forfit your Job to someone else with the proviso that he is no longer eligible to play in any League!

  2. It’s time to get rid of the NFL and NBA. The actors are racists, bigots and haters of liberty and freedom. They disrespect the men and women who defend these millionaires and their butts. Colin, you were at best a so so Q/B out for yourself.

  3. When he puts on that football uniform he becomes an agent of the team which that uniform is specifically designed to represent. In the guise of that very uniform he is bound, as their agent, and obligated to act in accordance with the directives of that team’s managers, and owner’s. He’s NOT free to do just anything and everything he wants. His right of choosing, and doing, whatever he wishes is limited by the demands placed upon him by those afore-mentioned managers and owners of the team his uniform is designed to promote.If he’d knelt without the uniform on he’d be representing no one but himself, unless he knelt among the embrace of the other players on the team, thereby making himself an obvious team representative even without the uniform.

  4. If the Media quits giving Kaepernick attention he will finally fade away as he should. The more attention he gets the more crap he’ll come up with to keep stirring up crap.

  5. let him file his lawsuit. The owners can hire whomever they want to do the quarterback job. If nobody wants him, nobody has to hire him. Owners decide who they want playing on their football team. Whoever signs him will see their attendance (and revenue) go down.

  6. Hey crapperdick
    Your just not good enough as a athlete or as even a grounds keeper for the NFL so get off your high horse ya dumbs hit and go get a garbage collectors job. Wait that may even be to much for your sorry ass

  7. With a name of COLON (a dirative of the name colin) it is no wonder that you are merely a “SHIT SHOOT”.. You have disrespeted not only the country that afforeded you some manner of respectability but even YOUR FAMILY DISOWNED YOU… COLON, YOU ARE NOT PLAYING NICE!!! WERE I OF YOUR FAMILY, I WOULD CHANGE MY NAME AND MOVE TO A LOCATION WHERE NO ONE WOULD KNOW WHO I WAS…. AND SINCE YOU DISRESPECTED YOUR COUNTRY, AS WELL, WHY DON’T YOU MOVE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY WHERE THEY DON’T KNOW WHO YOU ARE. T’WOULD MAKE MANY PEOPLE A WHOLE LOT HAPPIER.

  8. If Caperprick and his clan can’t show any respect for the flag that represents America and it’s people then he can take his Mulatto ass out of here, and hopefully his clan will follow… America would be a whole lot better off if everybody else followed with this kind of attitude.

  9. Every team in the NFL has at least one big mouth in the locker room….my team,the patriots have one..and u know he won’t be here next year..that’s right number 32..u know who I’m talking about

  10. YOU QUIT AND NOW YOUR SHOVELING THE RACE CARD SUING THE NFL FOR YOUR JOB BACK TIME TO SMELL THE ROSES YOU WERE NOTHING MORE THAN SECOND RATED QB THE NFL OWNERS DON’T NEED TO PORE GASOLINE ON THE FIRER THEY HAVE BEEN LOSING FANS AND SPONSORS THEY DON’T NEED YOUR OPINIONS OR BULLSHIT

  11. KAP NOT ONLY DISRESPECTS OUR VETERANS, BUT HIS OWN ANCESTORS. HE IS A PATHETIC EXAMPLE OF THE PROGRESS MADE BY MANY BLACKS. ALL MULTI-MILLIONAIRE BLACKS COULD CLEAR OUT OPPRESSION IF THEY WOULD UNITE AND USE THEIR MONEY TO DO SO. KAP’S QUARTERBACK SKILLS WERE NOT IMPRESSIVE. HIS RACE ISSUES CAUSED MORE PROBLEMS THAT HE IS WORTH. WHAT TEAM, OWNER WANTS A TROUBLEMAKER THAT WILL COST THEM MONEY.TODAY NFL IS RUINED, THX, KAP.

  12. Kaepernick scrambles to his left, the blitz is coming fast, he hurls it deep into the end zone in a last ditch Hail Mary praying for a win, ……….. and it’s batted down by the defense! Kaepernick’s falls incomplete and he continues to be a LOSER! LOL.

  13. Actually, most of the “fault” belongs to Roger Goodell for not applying the NFL rules EQUALLY. A player puts an insignia on his shoe and Goodell fines him – against the NFL rules. A team wnats to put insignia on their helmet – Goodell says no – agains the NFL rule. A player (kaepernick) takes a knee during the National Anthem – against the NFL rules and Goodell does NOTHING. Had he taken proper leadership and fined Kaepernick at that time, none of this would be happening. If I were an NFL owner, at the next NFL meeting I would fire Goodell!

  14. What a crock of crap. Kapperdick isn’t even a registered voter. If you want to create change, the 1st place to act is in the voting booth. If you think that disrespect of our flag, our soldiers and our country is a way to support the oppressed, then you are way to stupid to play pro football.
    Kapperdick is having trouble dealing with the consequences of his actions… He made his bed, now let him sleep in it. What a jackasssss….

  15. Kap is trying to piss up a rope ( We all know how well that works out ). He can never prove collusion by the owners not to hire him. He needs to find another career path and get busy working on it. Maybe community organizer, I know one guy that used that path to become pretty powerful and famous.

  16. Colon(YES spelling is correct, he is the waste of life!!) needs to rake his Ghetto Hoe and go to his Mooslime country he loves so much!! I am sure he will find the laws and enforcement there much more to his liking!!!

  17. Kaepernick was a flash in the pan QB; he is not good enough to be an NFL QB. Then, he started his kneeling during the anthem, a protest of self-serving intent. Suddenly, his act of self-serving protest caught on with others of the self-entitled, privileged to disdain the Anthem and those serving to protect American values. Blatantly, shamelessly using the Race Card to betray their self-absorbed Bigotry.

    Instead of suing the NFL of collusion, Kaepernick should work on his football skills and stop blaming everyone else, especially ‘America’ for his failures. Dropping his Jihad girlfriend may help him immensely.

  18. The Judge should ask him which country he would prefer to live in and give him a ONE WAY ticket there. What is wrong with us that we allow spoiled brats to cause our Country so much trouble

  19. Any sports player that refusing to stand for our Pledge or
    our National Songs. Should not be allowed to play in that game and should lose their chances of being signed up again! And heavially fined.
    With the amount of money they are paid to play, to insult what this Country stands for is a complete disgrace. If they don’t like it here that much, move out of the United States!

  20. I knew all along this was just a stunt so he could sue somebody. They all do that. If you looked at the black population in the US they area 50% + on the dole. All they want is a hand out . Many are on disability [ a program Trump has his eye on. Most of these people claim bad back, low energy, and a host of other fake excuses. I the military we called it “The sick, lame and lazy” list believe me all you have to do is work along side these people to know they all fall into the “Lazy” category. This guy’s status is just like welfare. He has a contract paying him millions, and he can just push his meaningless agenda and still get a paycheck every week. If the NFL leaders had any balls he’r be fired immediately

  21. If Kaepernick had any Brains at all, he would make his Apology and show his Respect to all of us, then maybe he might have a chance to be hired by some team….. When I say hired, I am stating that the NFL Owners is a Privately Owned Business in which you follow their RULES, as in ALL BUSINESSES, or face Displanary Actions….. In the Kaepernick case, he was WRONG in displaying a protest which has involved many which also are WRONG in doing so, that has effected the NFL’s Owners & Organization to effectively LOSE FINANCIAL FUNDS from there actions…..thus they have the Right to administer whatever Displanary Actions they so feel is warranted…..
    Kaepernick is Barking up the wrong tree and if he intends to continue his FOOLISH actions, he might as well leave this Country of OURS and go someplace where he possibly can SPUE his Deranged Garbage….. ( if he can find such a place ), suggest trying North Korea….as this is more to your liking, since you want to Disrespect and Dishonor OUR FLAG, COUNTRY and all VETERANS…..
    GOD BLESS AMERICA !

  22. well just like racism is an excuse , so is inequality and cops targeting blacks , let the muslim go play ball in syria or afganistan ,i’m sick and tired of listening to all these cry babies , when they are creating their own problems, it’s not americans that need to change their ways , it’s them , excuses are a dime a dozen

    • You are off base with police officers targeting blacks! Come to Chicago and see how many non-police blacks are murdering other black people, including children.

  23. McDonald’s doesn’t want to lose sales. Hire him, and place a bounty on his head when he takes the field, say $100,000 that should do it. Better yet hire him as tackle dummy, or have him pay rent on a uniform, say $1,000,000 a game, then take him out.

    • When the other players see the salary cuts they will be facing because of him – they won’t need a bounty just put him on the field. Like I’ve said before the irony for Kaepernick is his “Foundation” gave $25,000 to a group that supports a cop killer – when these players get their pay cuts he might well be begging for police protection.

  24. Wait until the NFL gets around to suing him for all the money he has cost them. He signed a contract that has player and team conduct clauses and they have been breached. He will lose everything he has no money – no honey – no fancy cars and no mansion – he has pissed of his family so will they help him again?

  25. CK is Just attempting to pushing his way back into the NFL & on any team that will have him!? Not sure that will work…not sure what Geragos was/is thinking either? What say y’all?
    Yours in FREEDOM…

  26. It’s time to let it go. If all the NFL players want to end injustice, let them pool their money and do something meaningful about it. Acting disrespectful to a country that not only gave them an education but the opportunity to make millions. They should use that money to help the oppressed.

    • That ought to play well in a league that is dominated by black athletes. I can’t imagine a spin that will make that applicable. Oh, I know, he’s only half black, so that’s why he’s being discriminated against.

    • You are probably right, but “That bird ain’t gonna fly”! 90% of the player’s are black, why pick on “poor little Pumpernickel”! If the NFL wishes to survive, my thinking is that they will just ignore that animal, in order to keep THEIR STATUS, IF, for no other reason! Pumpernickel should NEVER be allowed back into the NFL! Let him play football, in some other Country, like maybe N. Korea!

  27. Bring back Brett Favre’ ! He wasn’t banded by owners for his conduct. He was cut because he sucked, and that’s the truth. He never needs to be on another team in the nfl. Oh Mr. I wanna whine because I did not get my way. McDonald’s is hiring…

    • Wouldn’t that be something to have Farve step up to the plate and bail out the Packers in time of need ? I’m for it. I think he still has what it takes to win games.

    • Wouldn’t that be something to have Farve step up to the plate and bail out the Packers in time of need ? I’m for it. I think he still has what it takes to win games.

  28. He started all this crap now let him sit it out! No coach needs this coaches have enough to deal with w/o this nonsense! These guys are replaceable! You can’t tell me they can’t find another quarterback willing to come and play and follow the rules! And make millions! I’d say Kapernick is running low on money and this is just another lawsuit just trying to get money!

    • You MAY have a point here, even though I have no idea how a NORMAL person could run out of money when they have MILLIONS. The middle class in this country is GONE and we are having a difficult time getting by. It seems there is a new tax being levied on us on a daily basis that we do not even know about until we get our utility bills, etc. and check out how much we pay for our cable, phone, etc. bills on a monthly basis, which continue to increase. So, do not look at the middle class to have bleeding hearts for those who PLAY A GAME for millions of dollars a year. And, many of those middle class people pay huge prices for tickets to watch a GAME and pay the salaries of those PLAYING. Our military personnel protects everyone in our country and many are on welfare and these sports cry babies degrade them by not standing for the National Anthem and putting their hand over their heart. Now this butt hole wants to sue? This country is so litigious it is insane — give us a break with all this crap.

      • Nick2391: According to the National Endowment for Financial Education, 70% of all lottery winners go bankrupt. It’s call money mismanagement. So Susan could well be right, especially as Kaepernick doesn’t exactly strike me as the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    • There is NO WAY, the Packer’s will take ‘him’ on! There are plenty of young, upcoming player’s, who, while they may be a bit ‘rough’, would LOVE, to fill the Packer’s Qback position, for the rest of the season! Don’t worry, the NFL isn’t THAT Stupid! (I hope)!

      • I thought the Packers were owned by several people, including the players. I didn’t know the NFL could dictate to them. I guess I must have heard wrong. Sorry about that. I hope Colin K can’t get anywhere any football stuff. Why can’t he go work for Soros as his caddy or something. That’s who is paying him.

        • I’ve been a packer fan for 60 years. I no love mger watch them or the other National Fake Leaugue. I’m done. The Packers actually have shareholders. They cannot pick up in the middle of the night and move like Cleveland and Baltimore did. Since I don’t watch them anymore, I do not believe that the fans would stand for it, but then again if the owners have no balls to stop this disrespectful political statement in the workplace, I would not rule out that some team will sign him. If I would have protested on my private sector job, I would have been fired. Why are these scumbags not fired ?

      • That will never happen. Don’t forget there are tens of thousands of these fans who wouid not gone up their season tickets and others who value football over country. Probably the best case scenario is maybe 30% don’t show. However I’ve seen where ticket master and other ticket vendors are offering tickets at discount . There are people who will buy them up. I wouid love to see all the stadiums lose half their fans on a single Sunday. Would definitely put an end to this crap. I would also love to see half the viewers not tune in. These sponsors should also pull their ads.

    • I HAVE BEEN A GREEN BAY PACKERS FAN ALL MY 68 YEARS OF LIFE. I CAN TELL YOU THAT WHEN A PLAYER GETS AN ATTITUDE, HE’S TRADED OR DROPPED. THAT’S NOT WHAT THE PACKERS LOOK FOR IN A PLAYER. HE CAN’T BE A TROUBLE MAKER. WITH A NAME LIKE COLIN YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHAT HIS PERSONALITY IS LIKE.

  29. POOR BABY BLAMEING ALL HIS TROUBLES ON THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN SEEMS THE SKIN COLOR HAS TAKEN OVER HIS LIFE DISHONORS THE COUNTRY THAT HAS GIVEN HIM AND MOST PLAYERS MILLION DOLLAR CONTRACTS AND WHEN THEY SCREW UP ,THE POOR BABIES ARE BEING PICKED ON EVEN HIS OWN MOTHER DISOWNED HIM AND A NICE WHITE FAMILY RAISED AND GAVE HIM AN EDUCATION >> HASN’T THE BRAINS TO MOVE ON AS HE IS NOT THAT GOOD AS QUATERBACK SO NO LONGER WANTED AS HE IS A TROUBLE MAKER AND NOT GOOD FOR THE TEAM >>OENERS ARE RIGHT “NOT” HIRING A FOOL LIKE HIM BIG CRY BABY LET HIM WASTE HIS MONEY ON LAWYERS BUT IT WON’T CHANGE HIS ATTITUDE ABOUT HOW HE’S PICKED ON DISHONOR OUR FLAG AND THE COUNTRY THAT ALOT OF MEN AND WOMEN DIED FIGHTING FOR ,SO A**WIPES LIKE HIM CAN DISHONOR IT BAN HIM

    • Ernie: Amen! You are right on. He is a disgrace to any football team, because if his mout and hatred to our flag, national anthem and country. He was given every oppornity here in America making a couple of million dollars a year. If he was in Africa, he would not have had a pot to piss in.

    • Keepernick is just another no talent jerk that doesn’t appreciate all the breaks he has received, some probably because he is black. This guy is looking to get his name in the headlines, probably because he didn’t get the attention he wanted as a football star, and thats just because he isn’t that good. This guy doesn’t deserve the attention he is getting, a heavy rain storm deserves more attention than him.

  31. The whole thing is a farce. When will they ever learn that there isn’t as much “inequality” as they’re making it out to be? If someone commits a crime, or acts suspiciously, it dosn’t matter what skin color they have, they’ll likely have the police on their case. It doesn’t MATTER what skin color… if they’re gonna be jerks with an attitude problem. The problem is their attitude. They’re ALL losers in my book, and I hope the judge throws the book at him!

      • Right On!! He should Sue his muz girl for feeding him her Stupid PC CRAP that caused his IDIOTIC behavior!! The Real American FANS are REJECTING him for his Anti American BRAT behavior,don’t blame the teams BRAT!!!!

        • If the muz bitch has that much “sway” over his mind; maybe we can accomplish a “double play” and get them both GONE!!! Deport her and this mindless troll will follow.

          • And what has he accomplished? Nothing that I can see but a mess. Haven’t seen him out in the community trying to change things. Actually the players or any other person out to make change, don’t toot their own horn. They put their money where their mouth is and just do it. I don’t think he has a knee to stand on.

        • Man did you say amouth full. He was being lead around buy a skirt that was ruling what he has in his pants and son you just can’t fix stupid no matter who it is. When men get that deep into a relationship they will do anything the lady wants. EVEN THROW AWAY A PROMISING FOOTBALL CAREER. STUPID

      • He should move to North Africa where he wouldn’t be bothered by making millions of dollars because of the flag and what it stands for.

        • Kaepernick is being instigated by his girlfriend and paid by George Soros to carry out Soros’ dirty games. His failure to find a job is based on his inadequate performance. To be paid millions of dollars by an NFL team, you have to be a stellar performer and Kaepernik is NOT.

        • You are absolutely right and he can take George Soros with him. My son fought in Iraq for 3 years and he is sick and tired of the NFL and refuses to watch them at all any more. If they don’t agree with the foundation of our country, they can all get the “hell” out of here. No court case in the world will give the NFL back the money they have lost on disrespecting our flag and country.

      • I didn’t know his girlfriend was a Muslim too. I do know she’s a black lives matter activist, or shall I say a bowel movements matter activist, or a black looters matter activist.

      • If people don’t like living in the greatest country in the world, the United States of America, should move to a different country & leave the rest of us in peace.

    • It really doesn’t make any difference who they are or what color they are I still won’t watch football again. Their morals and sense of patriotism stinks, especially Kaepernicks.

    • Kapernick is a “high yellow” (mulatto) and they are confused about their identity; they want to blame others. BHO was of the same lineage as this football clown.

    • If Caperprick and his clan can’t show any respect for the flag that represents America and it’s people then he can take his Mulatto ass out of here, and hopefully his clan will follow… America would be a whole lot better off if everybody else followed with this kind of attitude.

    • I must be either asleep or missing something here.
      Kaepernick walked/quit, the 49er’s last year, he was not fired. Then he let it be known throughout the league he was available but only as a first string starter being paid as such. I recall he was not that good the last couple of years thus sitting on the bench. No team has picked him up, they don’t want the baggage or the millions they would have to pay him each year to sit on the bench as a second string but being paid like a first string player. No team wants what he brings with him, he’s not worth the money or problems. This is of his own doing otherwise he would still be on the 49er’s team.
      Considering he’s not a player, I am surprised the players union is getting involved.
      Wake up jack off, there is no free ride, Obama is not president anymore.

    • All, “also-ran” like Hillary, Kappernick, Kelly,and the rest of the recent list of assholes who lost their jobs because they (lost) their jobs to people who were actually (qualified) to do their jobs and demonstrated their qualifications for that job far beyond the qualifications of the (also-ran) demand equal rights for the rights they didn’t earn, and don’t even have a clue what the f**k their talking about and look for someone or something else to blame for their misfortune: ie: getting their ass kicked off the f**king block, whining about American injustice, however not voting for change!

      Eff you, Eff you, Eff you, Eff you! Get out of my country and don’t ever step foot on its soil again (any where America exists) you’re no longer welcome! You will be met with resistance beyond your darkest nightmares, which never allow you to rest (even for a second in time without screaming in your sleep in terror).
      You disrespect America, you disrespect me! F**k U and the dog that followed you and the horse you rode in on. Get out!

    • I just hope he doesn’t get a liberal judge. The stupid attorney is bad enough. I hope they throw this out of court and charging him for fraud. He’s no good!

    • So this Qback may have been on his game years ago but like they say “all good things must come to an end”!! Kap could have stayed with the 49’rs but his ego got the best of him as he was announcing during his last year of contract, that he was a free agent for the next season. He started to take the knee and BE out himself out of work. No one else gets credit for that but Colin himself. It’s been mentioned on most of these post that these players are dumb as an ox and I agree that A LOT of them couldn’t find their head from their asses without s GPS!! I’m actually thinking that sadly he is t as dumb as we would like. So I’m hoping that I can explain this correctly and if I do everyone here will be even more pissed off. So the 49’s (suck) are from San Fransico CALIFORNIA!! CA. Is one screwed up Liberal state and Iknow this first hand because I live here!! 95% of lawsuits like this one is settled out of court which I am sure this one will be too. For those who are not familiar with the left -wing, whacked out free loading state California has become just remember where the 9th circuit court lives. Yup, San Fransico!! Need I say more?
