Colin Kaepernick destroyed the NFL’s image when he ignited a rash of anti-American national anthem protests.
All season long, spoiled players and left-wing fans have been clamoring for the America-hating quarterback to be signed by a team.
In a recent interview, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell came right out and revealed Kaepernick’s fate.
Liberal players and fans have been complaining all season that Colin Kaepernick is being blackballed from the league due to being the leader of the national anthem protest movement.
These complaints ignore his deteriorating play as well as his initial salary demands.
Simply put, Kaepernick was likely to be a backup, but was not willing to settle for backup money.
He was, however, on the verge of being signed by the Baltimore Ravens but his girlfriend tweeted out a racist attack on the team’s owner and Ray Lewis, one of the franchise’s most famous former players.
Commissioner Goodell appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box where he was asked if Kaepernick was being blackballed by the NFL.
He flatly denied the charge.
“Monday on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell shot down the notion that free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick is the victim of a blackballing by owners around the NFL due to his polarizing National Anthem protests.
Goodell said that Kaepernick “is always welcome” to be a part of player’s coalition meetings.
“We’ve always invited Colin to come over,” stated Goodell. “He’s welcome to come over and meet at any point and time. We had an open door on that. There were some meeting set up with the player’s coalition, and they were invited by the player’s coalition.”
Goodell explained he believes there are a number of factors on why teams have yet to sign Kaepernick, but he does not agree with people like LeBron James that he has been blackballed.”
“Each and every club’s got to make those decisions,” he said. “They make those decisions based on a lot of factors that are best for their football team. And when they do that, that’s what’s in the best interest.”
If Kaepernick was still an elite level quarterback – as he was in 2012 when he led the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl – he would still be in the NFL.
But no team is going to absorb to the controversy and wrath of their fan base to sign a middling player.
