According to his supporters, unemployed NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is being blackballed not just because of his taking of a knee during the national anthem, but because he was doing to protest racial inequality. And they believe the reason he hasn’t been signed by an NFL team as of yet is that the league is racist. In truth, Colin Kaepernick’s difficulty in finding a new job stems from the fact that last season he demonstrated a disrespect for America, the league, Fans, and the TV networks.
Keep in mind that he wasn’t fired from the 49ers, Kaepernick opted out of his 49ers contract in March and became a free agent. And because he hasn’t been signed by any other team movie director and activist Spike Lee is promoting a “United We Stand” rally at NFL headquarters in New York in support of quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

I would gander that it is true that Kaepernick is unemployed because of his protest, taking a knee during the national anthem. More than one study concluded that his protest caused fewer people to watch NFL last season. That rating drop led to a big drop in advertising revenue for the NFL’s TV partners–those partners are the reason the NFL is as successful as it is, giving the teams the ability to pay large salaries to the players. In other words along with showing disrespect to this great country that gave him so much Kaepernickcrapped all over the league’s partners. anyone in any other industry who causes a major revenue loss to his employer’s parters would find it difficult to maintain employment.
Also by aligning himself with the radical anti-cop, anti-Semitic Black Lives Matter movement, Kaepernick has become an icon of the BLM movement’s bullying during a time in which the NFL has enough irresponsible man-children already. Coaches and managers are certainly not thrilled with the prospect of bringing his style of childish anger to their organizations, let alone have NFL commentators focused on the trendy pre-game ritual of a bratty backup rather than the actual game.
Now, new information has been released regarding Kaepernick’s true intentions in the league, according to the Daily Caller, the unemployed quarterback has turned down job offers from NFL teams in order to maintain his misguided position on top of the victims of racism list.
“Despite the ongoing narrative that Kaepernick’s very public political views are preventing any NFL teams from offering him a roster spot, The DC’s source claims Kaep himself has turned down at least one contract in the hopes of stirring up a media frenzy that eventually leads to a more lucrative deal for the 27-year-old vet.
“Kaepernick allegedly doesn’t want to make ‘backup money’ and specifically instructed his representative team not to sign one contract offered at the league’s minimum rate of $900,000 per year for a seventh-year player.
“Shortly after the 2017 offseason began, Kaepernick parted ways with XAM Sports — the agency which had represented him since he entered the league in 2011 — and TheDC’s source added that Kaepernick’s girlfriend, outspoken radio host Nessa Diab, appears to be a driving force behind his negotiating tactics.
“’Colin thinks he’s fighting a much higher battle than he is,’ the source stated. ‘He views himself as a race messiah.’”
Kaepernick’s God complex could likely keep him sidelined for years to come, if not longer.
Americans have turned away from the NFL in increasingly large numbers over the course of the last two years, with many analysts speculating that the league’s apparent liberal slant is affecting their normally-ardent fanbase. This has been unfortunately exacerbated by ESPN, the world’s premiere sporting television network, who has repeatedly sided with Democratic Party ideals in their coverage and staffing, disregarding the nation’s conservative majority in the age of Donald Trump.
Face it, Colin Kaepernick’s unemployment has nothing to do with the color of his skin, and everything to do with a disrespect for America which was seen by some as disrespecting the fans. Because of his disrespect, the fans cut back watching the games on TV, which meant Kaepernick’s protest led to a revenue loss for the league’s network partners which meant that Colin Kaepernick’s protest demonstrated disrespect to the organizations funding his salary. With all that disrespecting of others, why should Colin Kaepernick deserve respect when he declares free agency and looks for a position that will pay him more money?
