Colin Kaepernick reportedly withdrew his collusion complaint against the NFL for a settlement in the $60-80 million range.
It'll be interesting to see how much Kaepernick spends on social justice, and how much he keeps.
Antonio Brown should try social justice. Kaepernick’s money is guaranteed.
Kaepernick's attorney suggests that Kaepernick will again play in the NFL, perhaps for New England or Carolina.
That's hard to believe. Kaepernick hasn't played football since 2016.
But even if Kaepernick does make an NFL roster in 2019, the social justice warriors will keep campaigning.
The first time the starter on Kaepernick's team throws an incomplete pass, the roar will be deafening: "KAEPERNICK SHOULD START!" That will hold true even if Kaepernick signs with New England: "BRADY'S TOO OLD!"
if Kaepernick starts, only racism could keep him from making the Pro Bowl.
If Kaepernick makes the Pro Bowl, "OH MY GOD, WHY DIDN'T HE MAKE ALL-PRO!"
Pretty soon, the SJWs will demand that Kaepernick's team gets a bye to the Super Bowl. (He just got $60-80 million without getting hit once, so there seems no limit to what else Kaepernick could finagle.)
Kaepernick had every right to kneel, and should be admired for doing so.
But he has no right to employment. Never did. That's up to the men with the money.
Kaepernick should find some investors. Chip in his $60-80 million to buy a team.
Then, as a businessman looking to profit, let's see if he hires a backup player whose mere presence would anger a significant percentage of his paying customers.
