Spike Lee is 0-for-1 as NFL reporter

Getty Images

Spike Lee, Rob Lowe. Rob, Spike. (It’s not quite as poetic as the time David Letterman introduced Oprah and Uma.)

Five years after Rob Lowe incorrectly “reported” that Peyton Manning would retire, Spike Lee has “incorrectly” reported that the Seahawks have signed Colin Kaepernick.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Seahawks have not signed Kaepernick.

Lee has deleted the Instagram post that makes the claim. The tweet is still up.

Just as Lowe eventually was right (four years later), Lee could eventually be right, too. Kaepernick recently visited the Seahawks, and the Seahawks are the only team that has brought him to town in more than two months since he became a free agent.

    He fell for the fake news article that was floating around is what. I’ve seen friends posting it as well. Always look at the source first and go figure if the name its self doesn’t look well thought out and professional, it’s probably fake.

    Spike, Do the right thing and get off of Twitter.

  3. maust1013 says: May 27, 2017 4:31 PM

    You mean to say Spike Lee that bastion of integrity who once posted an incorrect home address for George Zimmerman on Twitter that chased an innocent family out of their home and put their lives at risk might have posted something in error?

  4. boknowsvt says: May 27, 2017 4:44 PM

    I look forward to all the comments…

    The fact that ‘ nick’ isn’t a backup somewhere hints that we’re a nation of fascists – how’d this happen? JC Vikings, Keenum over this guy?

  6. billsfan says: May 27, 2017 4:56 PM

    Please Spike…tell us YOU’RE retiring. Preferably to somewhere without any form of media, social or otherwise. Suggestion: Antarctica is nice this time of year.
    If you need a go fund me account, I’ll start it.

  7. exinsidetrader says: May 27, 2017 4:59 PM

    I though he said he was going to leave the country, or was that some other pompous, out-of-touch, celebrity Liberal cry-bully?

  8. mauldawg says: May 27, 2017 5:00 PM

    Spike is 0 for,000,000,000,000,000 as a human being.

  9. popcherrycoke says: May 27, 2017 5:03 PM

    Spike Lee is a confirmed moron

  10. icebergsimpson says: May 27, 2017 5:09 PM

    He’s also 0- for as a director too

  11. chrisk61 says: May 27, 2017 5:16 PM

    aw come on you guys,

    spike had some good flicks. the racist rants scene from do the right thing, when a guy from one ethnic group rails against another ethnic groups, is priceless.

    the italian pizza guy going off about blacks is a classic. and the others are pretty good too.

  12. flipola says: May 27, 2017 5:21 PM

    I’ll have some of what’s in Spike Lee’s joint.

  13. bannedfromchoirpractice says: May 27, 2017 5:21 PM

    The charges against Lee are an outrage! I’m so glad he has started a War Room to take on all of these false allegations.

    Or am I confusing characters, and mixing up one person’s tweet about football with the national security criminal activity of others?

  14. stinkymcmulligan says: May 27, 2017 5:21 PM

    Spike Lee is a joke. End of story.

  15. jklecko77hof says: May 27, 2017 5:29 PM

    Anybody know why Spike Lee is famous?

    He makes movies that would embarrass a college student.

  16. mcjon22 says: May 27, 2017 5:30 PM

    That’s a better record than his beloved Knicks

    Lmao! So I suppose RGIII’s current unemployment is the result of fascism as well?

    Get real. You seriously don’t know a right-wing troll post when you see one?

  20. medialovesthecowboys says: May 27, 2017 6:03 PM

    Can Kap win you games? That’s seriously the only thing we should be talking about at this point.

    Terry Bradshaw is disgusted by this.

  22. Slapshot says: May 27, 2017 6:24 PM

    Spike should start pulling for the Predators in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He could travel down to Nashville and mingle with the country stars and embrace the Tennessee way of life. The Preds’ fans would love him and he would love them back. He could even back up Carrie Underwood when she sings the National Anthem. He could sit in the front row with his “Penguins Suck” t-shirt while forgetting about the Knicks for two whole weeks.

    No, what hints that is all the leftist university students who run off conservative speakers. Just call them the brown shirts.

    Spike Lee is the definition of passive aggressive, controversial reverse-racism.

  25. bowenfootdoc2013 says: May 27, 2017 6:51 PM

    WISHFULL THINKING SPIKE LEE. HAPPY YOU ARE NOT A SCOUT FOR THE PANTHERS. STICK TO WHAT YOU ARE GOOD AT AND LEAVE IT AT THAT MI AMIGO!

  26. staffordisbetterthanyourteamsqb says: May 27, 2017 7:00 PM

    I have no strong opinions of Spike Lee either way but just to be clear none of you who are trashing him have accomplished a fraction of what he has in your lifetimes

    Well, I go most days of my life without making a complete fool out of myself.

    In that way, I suppose I have accomplished a great deal more than ol’ Spike.

  29. irishgary says: May 27, 2017 7:41 PM

    Lee and Kap are both racist idiots

  30. Exapno Mapcase says: May 27, 2017 7:42 PM

    Word on the street is the Seahawks are in the market for a locker room cancer, so Spike might be onto something.

  31. hillarystandswhenshepees says: May 27, 2017 8:05 PM

    He’s a racist.

  32. jssebastian2014 says: May 27, 2017 8:26 PM

    Spike Lee is the Lavar Ball of sports journalism.

  33. nyneal says: May 27, 2017 8:58 PM

    Spike Lee is Al Sharpton, Jr.

  34. theuncletodd says: May 27, 2017 8:59 PM

    Thimble= Spikes’ sports credibility

  35. manderson4150 says: May 27, 2017 9:05 PM

    But it’s Spike, he can do no wrong, he even was critical of the movie “Hoosiers.”

  36. margoadams says: May 27, 2017 9:21 PM

    You know and I know if Spike Lee had an NFL franchise, he wouldn’t hire Kapernick.

  37. paleandpasty says: May 27, 2017 9:31 PM

    He’s like 0-15 in making movies too.

  38. edwicy says: May 27, 2017 9:33 PM

    Anybody else starting to think that Spike and Trump are from the same family tree?

  39. whatjusthapped says: May 27, 2017 10:36 PM

    Spike Lee is similar to Al Sharpton, both are idiots, both are talentless fools who have made a lot of money purporting to represent Black America but actually have done more damage than good.

  40. thegreatgabbert says: May 27, 2017 11:33 PM

    Squidward the Seasquawk Sasquatch. Conjures up all sorts of unpleasant images.

  41. aj66shanghai says: May 28, 2017 12:52 AM

    What a terrible thing, to unwittingly tweet one piece of meaningless misinformation. Thank god he’s not in a position of great power, just imagine the damage he might have done

  42. alphafantasyfootball says: May 28, 2017 3:16 AM

    The fact that articles are written about Spike Lee reporting on Kaepernick’s job status is part of the reason Kaep has no job. Besides the fact that Krap sucks, no coach wants their team linked to this crap.

  43. footballboozer says: May 28, 2017 7:53 AM

    Why is this racist even relevant?

  44. eddiea25 says: May 28, 2017 8:32 AM

    Urban con man, hates white meat. Sick of him playing”the card”.

    Mars Blackmon, they’re so cute when they are little.

  46. laserw says: May 28, 2017 8:51 AM

    I loathe Spike Lee- a race pimp – a black racist. He should be shunned just like the Klan and Black Lies Matter.

  47. bencoates57 says: May 28, 2017 9:04 AM

    If it happens, Lee will turn out to have been quite the soothsayer — and he would have broken it first.

  48. nhpats says: May 28, 2017 9:31 AM

    If it were not for racism guys like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Spike Lee would be broke and working at MacDonalds

  49. curmudgeon13 says: May 28, 2017 9:36 AM

    Spike would fit right in w/ NFL media types, conjuring up inaccuracies…….

  50. TheCommish says: May 28, 2017 12:40 PM

    Spike is also 0-for-24 on watchable movies.

  52. nic3roc0123 says: May 28, 2017 1:23 PM

    You can’t even escape politics anymore, someone always has to bring up the Russia scandal on these comment boards. Yes, I think it’s very concerning to all Americans, especially us Reagan supporters, but also a very scary period in our country’s time and we shouldn’t bring it into sports where we come to get a break from it all.

  53. pioniere says: May 28, 2017 1:50 PM

    I wish this guy would just go away. This is the same guy who sued Spike TV for using ‘his’ name. Idiot.

    Spike and Donald both would benefit from your advice.

  55. bigblue00 says: May 28, 2017 4:26 PM

    Why am I not surprised Spike Lee would be lobbying for Kapernig?

  56. jimbobcooterqbtutor says: May 29, 2017 3:07 AM

    “Do the right thing” is a highly overrated film, imo. The acting is so frenetic and overdone, it’s so annoying. And I don’t even know what the message was. What was the right thing? Rioting? Protesting? Oh, now I see why he’s a Kaepernick fan.

  57. jimbobcooterqbtutor says: May 29, 2017 3:16 AM

    What I don’t get is Spike Lee seems to dislike white people a lot, yet he marries a white woman, and makes her wealthy. I bet her family also gets a lot of perks for being attached to Spike. I guess he didn’t want to make a black woman the happiest person in the world.
