Colin Kaepernick is not giving up on his fight to force his way back into the NFL.
The anti-American quarterback is suing the NFL for collusion because he does not have a job.
And he has one piece of paper that is bad news for Donald Trump.
Last September, President Trump rallied patriotic Americans to stand up to anti-police, anti-military, and anti-American flag NFL players who protested during the national anthem.
These un-American protests infuriated fans across America and the NFL’s bottom line suffered.
Kaepernick – who opted out of his contract with the 49ers before the 2017 season – found himself without a job.
Rather than accept responsibility for his declining play – Kaepernick claimed NFL owners colluded to keep him out of the league because he was the one who initiated the anti-American anthem protests.
As part of his lawsuit, Kaepernick’s lawyers are threatening to subpoena the President.
The Daily Caller reports:
“The former QB’s legal team will attempt examine both Trump and Pence’s “political involvement with the NFL during Kaepernick’s free agency and the league’s handling of player protests,” according to Yahoo Sports.
But it’s not going to be the easiest thing in the world to get the Commander In Chief on this one.
“The quarterback’s legal team first must notify the system arbitrator of the need for targeted depositions beyond the boundaries of the agreement between the NFL and the player’s union,” Yahoo continues. “That would entail presenting a detailed argument to the system arbitrator overseeing the grievance, spelling out the relevance and impact that testimony from Trump or others could have on the grievance.”
If NFL owners thought Kaepernick could still play, he would be in the league.
Players who have been involved in manslaughter causes have been brought back into the league.
The bottom line in the NFL is – talent talks.
And Kaepernick – who projects to be a backup quarterback – is not worth the headache.
