Colin Kaepernick Sabotages NFL Workout


Last week the National Football League offered formerly exiled quarterback Colin Kaepernick a chance to stage a workout in front of all available teams [click here if you missed that].

Colin's last minute demand for a change of venue sabotages the deal...
 
Colin Kaepernick was supposed to workout at the Atlanta Falcons practice facility on Saturday but after the NFL barred the media from attendance, Colin - who arrived wearing a T-Shirt with the name Kunta Kinte emblazoned across the front - demanded the workout be held at an Atlanta area high school stadium instead.

Later Colin addressed the media.

Good on Kaep! He's not here for Jay Z nor the league. He's here for his cause and nothing else! And he's still making money with Nike.

Why is he still interested in playing in the NFL at this point. I thought he moved on...

I'm kind of confused with Colin. It's no secret that the league is chicken shit and full of shit. However, at this point, they've settled with him. I mean, it seems like he's still disgruntled? Like, why even play for the NFL if he doesn't trust them? And after he flipped the script with the venue, should they trust him? I get it, he brought his own video crew and I would have did that too. Because, we can't trust the NFL to submit the correct footage. Knowing them, they'll send trash footage. Also, at first it was 25 teams present and then they switched abruptly and only 8 teams turned out. Like, what's really the deal. How can you still call your own shots, go by your own narrative, buck the same system that you want to give you a job? The same system that just settled with you? Although, he hasn't been playing, he's been making major paper behind the scenes. Kinda over him....In life can we really have it both ways? Does he really want to play? So, what's next? The NFL tried to set something up and he wasn't on board. This is weird.... To make it make sense, I'll see what you all say. Because, right he's kind of doing too much.

Good for him. This was a dog and pony show designed to make those civil rights denying magaTs look good to the public.

Colin walked right into the NFL's trap.
I was listening to the TJMS and they said that the NFL wanted him to sign some sort of waiver that he wouldn't sue the NFL for collusion going forward.
Colin should know that no NFL team is going to hire him as long as Trump is in the White House for two reasons.
The NFL wants sports gambling legalized on a national level and Trump has signaled that he is willing to play ball ( no pun intended) and they know that Trump is transactional so they know to keep him happy which means keeping Colin out of the league.
Secondly Trump is up for re-election and I believe one of the reasons that Trump was elected is that he was able to galvanize his base at the last minute by attacking Colin and if it worked once he will try it again.
Hell Trump is a master at changing the media narrative and if Colin is back in the league he would always be a target for Trump to attack just to change the subject.
Colin move on with your life and make the most of your settlement with the NFL.

Colin doesn’t own the league. He wants to be an employee for a company but he doesn’t want to follow the company’s rules. If he can’t play by its rules, he needs to move on, start his own league with his own rules or something.

I think something is off about him anyway. Time for him to go back into obscurity. I’m tired of hearing about this drama queen.

His "cause" to the tune of millions of dollars from the NFL, Nike, etc.. He is here for himself and all the trolls follow him - giving him publicity and getting nothing in return. Wake Up People!

So first Jay Z try to get some credit for Kap getting a workout. At the same time come out with the looks of as if he's still doing it big with a gala. FAILED! If Jay Z is WORRIED so much about being CANCELLED for messing around with the NFL; he should've left that party job alone. This is Real life not play fun. Gone somewhere!

@7:51, 8:20, 9:10, 9:19: I 100% agree.

If I worked for a company that I felt shitted on me but later compensated me, why would I be so pressed to return to that company? Why wouldn't I just take that money and do something positive and empowering, or that furthers the cause for which I was protesting in the first place? Why would I fight so hard to get back to working for that company; especially if they've made no significant changes in over 3 years? What's the point here? I'm really not understanding his agenda.

This went from Colin being the half-black Messiah of the Black power struggle to him making demands about workout camp. He got his money, Black Lives still don't matter to the NFL and most of White America and none of the everyday Black folks who chose to "Stand With Kaep" have gleaned any benefits from his initial protest. Yes, make this makes sense please.

what a white ass headline...Colin protected his own damn self, I felt the NFL was pandering to his ass and apparently they were. they just wanted him to sign his rights away and then show some bullshit to the public and to the league.
Colin sued them because what they did was wrong. He's trying to get back in the league casue why not? The NFL is shit, and if this don't show you to leave the all cracker owned shit alone, nothing the fuck will...niggas will still get paid whether niggas support or not...I choose not to support cause they can enslave folks without my help

ITS IMOORTANT TO NOTE THE LAST PARAGRAPH . TERMS OF AGREEMENTS WAS NOT REACHED BY EITHER PARTIES
So how is it Kap alone fault. And ats for im been part white since wen did you racist care about that part, seems some1 with a drop of African blood was always black to u guys.
Agenda the man lost 100 million dollars becuz he should up 4 his belief I don't know a bigger scracrifice he could have made except give his life,
How many if us is willing to risk a paycheck for any cause, I'll wait.
He showed up and worked out on his own terms becuz had he sustain injuries on their field they could sue him, he want to play simply becuz he loves the got damn game and is goog at it

Not a fan of sports of this ugly gonzo looking fool. Stunt queens are gonna stunt the end.

Every time he has an opportunity he swerves it. Miami wanted to try him out.. he wears a Castro shirt. Ravens wanna bring him in.. his girl posts the meme comparing Ray Lewis and the Ravens team owner to The master and slave in Django. Now the NFL wants to give him a workout and he dodges it last minute and does a workout he coulda done ANY TIME regardless of the NFL. People are confusing a righteous cause that he brought attention to with the man. I supported him too.. I was down with the kneeling but now he's just clowning.. Ironically his star is actually bigger now than it would ever be in the NFL. But he acts as if he needs the NFL or conflict with the NFL to remain relevant.. which strikes me as a hollow posture. He is nowhere near the conviction of a Muhammad Ali who he was actually compared to early on. But that comparison has faded out in a major way due to his acting funny style.. His post workout interview was laughable. He said the NFL was running from him? They invited him to a workout and HE ran from THEM.

He is losing me I'm confused and not understanding what is message is today. He wasted a lot of folks money and time and not everyone in the NFL has dissed him so why burn potential bridges now?

@Niyabinghi/ObeahWomanWarrior WHY do you feel the need to comment on EVERY post, even when you have absolutely NOTHING of value to add?
STFU and be quiet sometimes!
You literally comment just to say "I'm not commenting". Shut. Up.
and P.s. I'm sure Colin Kaep is by far more attractive, masculine, productive and self aware than any of those wildebeests you had to have cut out of you.
SICK of your shit, just STOP!
