Kaepernick’s agreement may include permanent separation clause

Getty Images

The NFLPA’s statement regarding the settlement of the Colin Kaepernick collusion grievance expressed in one breath a hope that Kaepernick will be back in the NFL and acknowledged in the next breath that the union representing all players has no information about the terms of his settlement. It’s quite possible that the terms of the settlement make the first point moot.

Lawsuits and arbitrations arising from employment issues routinely include a declaration that the former employee will not apply for employment with the company and will not accept an offer of employment with the company in the future. This term preemptively blocks an effort by a disgruntled former employee to take a settlement and then show up seeking a job at some point down the road, arguing that a failure to employ the person constitutes retaliation for the prior legal claim and settlement of it.

If the NFL secured such a provision in the Kaepernick settlement agreement would have been prudent, and it undoubtedly would have been expensive. With Kaepernick believing that but for collusion he would have been employed in 2017, 2018, and through  the natural conclusion of his career, the 31-year-old quarterback may have wanted up to 10 totals years of compensation to go away.

Arguably, a provision like that would constitute collusion on its face. But if Kaepernick chooses to waive his right to seek or accept employment with any of the NFL’s 32 franchises as part of the settlement, that’s his business. And if the NFL’s lawyers were to suggest that term within the confines of settlement discussions, Kaepernick’s lawyers wouldn’t have been able to run into court and shout “COLLUSION!,” because communications occurring within the confines of settlement talks are inadmissible and necessarily confidential.

Obviously, the NFL didn’t secure a term like this with Eric Reid, given that he recently signed a new contract with the Panthers. Thus, the league will have to worry about something happening in the future that could cause Reid to claim that a decision made about him carries with it the taint of collusive retaliation. As to Kaepernick, however, the NFL had every reason to permanently end the relationship — and if the price was right for it Kaepernick had no reason to decline.

Before the settlement, the league and its teams seemed to be determined to never employ Kaepernick again. Absent a promise to not seek or accept employment going forward, any future grievance filed by Kaepernick would have come down to dollars and cents. If Kaepernick got enough dollars and cents now, there’s no reason to cling to a possible opportunity to get more dollars and cents later.

  1. Lets all just hope that finally all of this just goes away. CK, Goodell, and the NFL. The whole thing stunk from day 1 and just got worst and worst. One positive thing, fans will never have to see a CK bobble head doll featuring an image kneeling down with hair the size of Saturn.

  2. If that clause is indeed written into the agreement it would be the first smart thing Goodell has done in a long, long time.

  3. As usual, the NFL bought their way out of another controversy. The only thing that gets done, is spending money. And now every disgruntled QB, who lacks skills, can sue for money. Good JOB!

  4. Kap’s Weakness in the case was always the fact that he alone was the one who elected to terminated his $13M deal in SF thinking he would get bigger offers.

    Let’s stop the spinning here to create the illusion Kap won. Everyone settled, the atty’s Won and Kap is still an unemployed QB who has to live with the fact his fav receiver apparently was a CB, Richard Sherman

  5. It was a lose-lose for NFL Owners…

    If there was collusion, obviously they’d be in some deep water…

    And if there wasn’t collusion…their private life dirty laundry would’ve been aired out for all Public to see…

    For Kapernakick and Reid…had it gone all the way and there was no collusion…they’d be stuck with big lawyer bills… so by settling, they don’t take the chance at losing the case…and their supporters still get to believe collusion occurred…

  6. …..here comes the “deflection force”….uprooting the goalposts and moving them back 20 yards. Can you hear the “I just want it to go away”? I hope Kaep takes his NFL Royalties and never plays another down in the NFL and continues to follow his calling and support the causes he believes in.

  7. What this article doesn’t say is that one of the NFL’s key reasons for settling and keeping Kaepernick out of the league is to shut off player’s voices and make it even more difficult to voice their concerns. Kaepernick and Reid were leaders in a movement to create awareness of racial injustice and to the NFL’s horror they succeeded. The NFL is a billionaire white boys club that takes in over $10 billion a year. It is corporate sports at its worst and the NFL’s dealing with Kaepernick clearly showed that. I wonder what the long-term implications of this settlement may be. The NFL Player’s Association has caved in to a salary cap, non-guaranteed contracts and other measures that have diminished the ability of player’s to earn a contract they are entitled to. Now, they have shut off player’s voices in the same manner as they lied about concussion research. The NFL may have forced Kaepernick to go away but the problems that exist for the league are not going away and perhaps could be exasperated by this agreement.

    There’s no way Kaepernick got close to $60 million. He probably got around half of that. Enough to pay Geragos and save some face. The NFL just wanted to be done with it.

    —————-

    I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a 9 figure settlement. Forget everything else for a moment and just focus on the owners. Is there anything they’ve said and done over the last 7 years to make you think that the NFL would come out unscathed by revealing their emails and what not over this situation? Kaep has nothing to lose here, no reason to settle. He’ll have endorsements and be considered an icon no matter what because even if he had lost this case people would still just think what they think, that he was colluded against or he wasn’t. If he wins the case it’s huge for him and the cause. He has no reason to settle. You take those two situations, Kaep not needing to get paid, the NFL desperate to not reveal internal communications, and then add to it the reality that this is an organization that routinely pays employees 10s of millions a year. Throw Kaep 20-30 mill a year for the next 10 years, isn’t a big thing to them and with the power distributed how it is, NFL desperate for a settlement, Kaep saying no thanks, and I wouldnt be surprised in the least if he got something monstrous.

    I just hope this guy goes away so the NFL can go back to respecting the troops by charging them money to celebrate them on the field
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    And get back to disrespecting the flag before EVERY game by holding it horizontal (parallel to the ground) which is CLEARLY a violation of U.S. Flag Code. And all the “great patriots” that have been threatening to boycott can cheer wildly at that disrespect while swilling $9.00 beers, proudly dressed in their Made In China M.A.G.A. hats.

  10. It would be easy for the NFL to pay Kaep 20 million a year for the next 10 years. That comes out to $625,000 per team per year.

  11. Article 17, Section 9 of the CBA says that the remedy for collusion is that the player recovers his lost earnings, plus a penalty equal to double those lost earnings if the teams involved are first offenders.

    Kaepernick was coming off a season where, on a terrible team, had 16 TDs to 4 INTs, 460 rushing yards, and a couple of rushing TDs in 12 games. Sure, his completion rate was just 59%, yes he was 1-10 as a starter, but here are the relevant free argent QB contracts that year:

    Mike Glennon, 3 yrs, $16 million per year
    Jay Cutler, 1 yr, $10 million
    Robert Griffin, 2 yrs, $7.5 million per year
    Brian Hoyer, 2 yrs, $6 million per year
    Josh McCown, 1 yr, $6 million.

    Hoyer and McCown signed knowing they would be competing for a starting job.

    For all his flaws, Kaepernick was better than all of those guys.

    I’ve heard the $60 million rumour also. That would be based on a settled agreement of $20 million in future career earnings, plus the $40 million penalty. Based on what guys like that got last year, and what other guys got in 2018 (Blake Bortles, $18 million per year), $60 million sounds like a bargain for the NFL.

    There are 32 owners in the league. Obviously the Maras and the Rooney’s and Robert Kraft were smart enough to not be a problem. But all it would have taken here was one email from a Dan Snyder, Stephen Ross, or Terry Pegula, and the case is won for Kaepernick.

  12. Don’t ever forget. Mike’s also a lawyer. This site rocks. Keep that AAF info coming as it is a tremendous concept league.
    Kap was a bug pulled off the NFL’s windshield for making money. He is out of the NFL, but he got his. I hope he’s happy. I was at a baseball game last year and these children with their Mother sat for the National Anthem. I wanted to dump my beer on their heads and say “sorry”.
    But I didn’t. [but I should have].

  13. So I’m confused about who kap hurt? ? Dogging him out like he’s a criminal. . And the 49ers was going to release him any way so he it’s not like he had a choice.. With that said, the nfl probably paid him more not to play than he would have made playing lol. So ultimately kap came out a winner to me. And he probably didn’t want to play in the nfl not knowing if owners agenda could be to take him out.. They’re dirty like that

  14. In light of the very bad optics of Kaep asking for $20million to play for the AAF, any chance that’s was his side that asked the NFL to settle? Wouldn’t surprise me.

  15. Legal system is broken, he probably would’ve been 50-50 to make a roster in 2017 based on his ability at that time. Yes, he was good 6 years ago but he was damaged goods by 2017.

    Based on his current condition I would say his expected future career earnings is less than $10M.

  16. I was a Kap supporter until the settlement. Now I hope I never have to hear from this idiot again. Please take your money and fade into obscurity.

    Wonder how much of it he will donate to the movement?

  17. Some day the full dollar amount will be revealed and people will be surprised how little he got.

    These corporate settlements almost never get above the value of the insurance policy, which is probably $5 million per incident. Employment suits rarely reach that level too without some sort of class action aspect, like organization-wide discrimination.

    His supporters are guessing $60-$80 million. There’s no way. Even assuming the NFL is trying to hide something (which they probably aren’t as the damage to their reputation is already known), I can’t see him getting more than one year’s salary, which the NFL values at $7 million and he calls $14 million. That’s your settlement range.

  18. seems like getting paid to do nothing was all colin kaepernick really wanted. he is just another sell out like the rest of the sell outs. if there was really collusion he would have kept pushing it. he basically extorted the money by kneeling. whatever it takes to get rich i guess.

  20. There have been rumors reported on other sites that Kaepernick was paid upwards of $60 million by the NFL and that is outrageous if true!

    If the NFL colluded to keep that overrated bum from earning $11.5 million just to wind up paying him $60 million to go away then it was an epic fail on the NFL’s part.
    Should’ve colluded to sign him and expose him as overrated!

  21. If he gives up the right to be an NFL quarterback, his settle would probably be at least 100 million bucks, since 5 years of employment as a starting quarterback would get him that much. Even if he gives up his right, some team may want to give him a look/see, now that the NFL will supposedly no longer blackball him. The agreement may be that he is free to pursue a job as NFL quarterback, but if he is not employed, he cannot sue the NFL for collusion again.

  22. Rumor was the nfl paid very little but agreed to not embarrass Reid and kaepernick by exposing them as frauds in exchange they would go away. It fully explains why Colin demanded 20 million to play in the AAF

  23. Has there ever been any sports league less transparent than the NFL? No matter the issue, it’s always shrouded in secrecy. And I think it’s because they know the average person is a moron, that’s the leg up PR people always have on the general populus. The average moron will get all up in arms about whatever the outrage-du-jour is, they’ll blindly and passionately defend one side, based more on personal feelings than facts. They attach themselves to low-hanging fruit arguments and bumper sticker slogans, with no real good reasoning behind their arguments, clearly reeking of personal bias. Then in the end, if it was the NFL on the offensive, you either get heavily-slanted Ted Wells reports by a guy carrying the League’s water, trying to keep these multi-million dollar cases rolling into his firm; OR you get some shady settlement with all kinds of NDAs and whatnot, a complete sweep-up job, like they did with concussions/CTE. Nothing to see here, folks. Everything clearly on the up and up. And here we are again. If you think this has anything to do with patriotism, military and police support, America….come to the window and collect your prize, you’ve been selected as the Idiot Of The Day. If the NFL was as convicted about this as the so-called “silent majority”, they would have beaten this kid into the ground. They’re the NFL, one of the most powerful entities in the country. Unlesssssss…they actually did something shady. Usually when you have nothing to hide, you don’t hide stuff. The NFL knew it was in trouble, they settled, whether you call that a win for Kap or not, I don’t know. If it’s about playing again, he lost. If it’s about money, he won. Either way, a flashlight was shone on the NFL again, and they’ve come out looking REAL sketchy.

  24. I wonder if the NFL made sure to make a point of covering any employment on any level for an NFL team, because you know what’ll be next, he’ll claim he’s not be giving a fair shot at any coaching or front office positions….

  25. Kaep is a fraud. Plain and simple. People that actually stand for something don’t take money under the table to keep quiet. MLK, Ghandi, Mandella, even Ali. None of those true heros could’ve been bought like this. Hopefully he takes his millions and just goes away forever. The worst part is people actually look up to this guy. Sad sad society we live in.

  26. If the owners really believed Kaepernick was a bad QB, they’d all be offering Jim Harbaugh $25 million per year to coach their team. Kaepernick had less than 10 career starts under his belt when he led the 49ers to the super bowl, and came a whisker away from winning. The very next season he had them right back in the NFC Championship game, and was one play from winning that too. This is a complete and total QB league, where the teams with the best QB’s usually win. So if a coach can do all that with a reject QB, the owners would pay through the nose for him. There’s your collusion case right their. Kaepernick is a very wealthy man today. One thing you can be sure of is that Kaepernick won’t be suing the NFL for concussions. He’s making his money and not having to sacrifice brain.

  27. I just need someone… anyone… to explain to me why you hate Kaepernick and Reid for what Trump says is disrespect to our flag but you’re perfectly fine with the clear violations of U.S. Flag Code that take place with great pomp and circumstance, and Trump’s approval, before every game.

    Is your allegiance to the flag, or to “the party?” Just answer that very simple question honestly. It really isn’t that hard… or shouldn’t be.

  28. Everybody here is speculating nobody knows for sure, but no matter how you spin it he WON! Trust me there would be no settlement if the amount was not significant (the lawyers have to get their third). When the arbitrator rejected the NFL’s effort for summary judgment there had to be significant facts favorable to Kap to move the case forward.

    As for him not taking the money, money was the ONLY possible outcome. He couldn’t get an order for them to hire him, money damages is how you make a plaintiff whole (and yes I am an attorney). There is no way the NFL can spin this into anything but a loss.

  29. I would imagine that with the payday Kaepernick just had he’ll never have to work again.
    The NFL has more money than God, and they could have dragged this through the courts for years, yet they chose to settle. What’s that tell you?

  30. mikeinminny says:
    “..I thought the whole purpose of the suit was to allow Kaep to play in the league….not just a money grab..”

    No, the purpose of the suit was to punish the NFL for collusion.

  31. I’m a long-time reader and occasional poster on this site. Very clearly, the demographic skews 70% +/- R and conservative.
    Just look at the thumbs up and down on a given issue. The tell is on any issue.

    Why anyone would consider a ‘read’ on the polling here as anything but confirmation bias, is beyond me.

    What if there are other players who now see,… if you kneel,…. you might get paid by the NFL to stop it,.. or maybe just leave the sport ? And there very well may be players who wouldn’t mind leaving the game with a big fat NFL settlement.

    Not all Lawsuit Settlements are taxable. It depends on the wording of the documents. If he's getting money for emotional distress or similar,…. it's not taxable. Like I said,… it's all dependent on the wording of the settlement.

    ==========================================================

    $1? ROTFL

    If Kap and Reid committed fraud, they can be sent to prison because fraud is a felony. If they committed fraud, they won’t even get a single penny and they even have to pay the NFL’s legal fees, which is probably in the millions already. The source of the rumor knows even less than I do about the American legal system. The NFL settled because they can be liable for punitive damages, which can be triple of what they owe in back wages. The real fraud is the continued denial by some that Kap was blackballed.

  37. Lets just hope that whatever he receives it also includes a gag order that prohibits him from discussing the NFL, franchises or employees of either at all in interviews, books, speaking engagements, etc… paid or not.

    I would have thought the trial would have been the desirable outcome (win or lose) for someone who is obviously on the high ground of virtue. Making the owners and commissioner testify in front of a jury about their business model and how they make their money.

    It seems that money is the ONLY think CK was ever truly interested.

    And to those asking “who did CK ever hurt?” No-one until his motives are now uncovered. Now, those who truly believe in their cause will be viewed even more cynically and/or even dismissed because of his pretextual protest.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    If you don’t know the answer to that, you either never took part in a Military funeral AND/OR you should be very, very deeply ashamed of yourself… “patriot.” U.S. flag Code is very specific. Below are pertinent excerpts from said Code. Perhaps you should spend some time reading the rest of it before further embarrassing yourself.

    §7. Position and manner of display

    n. When the flag is used to cover a casket, it should be so placed that the union is at the head and over the left shoulder. The flag should not be lowered into the grave or allowed to touch the ground.

    §8. Respect for flag

    b. The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise.

    c. The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.

    j. No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen, and members of patriotic organizations. The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.

  40. A baseball umpire sued MLB for discrimination saying they’ve blocked him from crew chief promotions and world series games. Any baseball fan knows how awful Angel Hernandez is. Did MLB collude against Hernandez?

  41. Now time for the NFL to do something about the anthem before the next federal election and BLM or another special interest group finds another mouthpiece to spread their propaganda.

    It is difficult to win an argument with an intelligent person but it is impossible to win an argument with an ignorant person who doesn’t know they are wrong. I’d just let the cabbage patch kid continue to revel in stupidity

  44. So we are to believe that Kap wants to play QB so badly that he sued for collusion but then he accepts a deal for cash and a guarantee he’ll never play again?

    Seems pretty obvious Kap just wanted a payday and in the discovery, they came across an email that would have been embarrassing to an owner so his shakedown was complete.

    I would have loved a trial where a QB coach broke down the film of how many wide open WRs he missed because he can’t read a defense and that’s why he’s unemployed

  46. How do all you posters know the NFL wanted to settle? This came about the day after it was reported Kraperneck wanted $20 mil to play in a league that only pays $250k. Maybe his lawyer saw his paycheck disappearing before his eyes and pushed Krap to settle.

    I was an active duty infantryman for a quarter of a century and did more funerals than I’ll ever remember. You should attend one sometime and see what is done with the flag when it’s lifted off the coffin, big shot. You can’t even properly fold the flag if it’s vertical to the ground.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    It is difficult to win an argument with an intelligent person but it is impossible to win an argument with an ignorant person who doesn’t know they are wrong. I’d just let the cabbage patch kid continue to revel in stupidity

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Wait. Now the U.S. Flag Code is stupidity? Because so many of you seem to be ignorant to its existence and/or its contents? Yeah, that sounds about right in this day and age. All I’m asking you and your kind to do is actually respect the flag instead of hiding behind it. Take the time to learn the Code, and follow it, before jumping on your soapbox and condemning Kaepernick or anyone else. Or is that too reasonable for you?

  48. The price of beer just went up at NFL games cause Kaepernick got a s-ton of NFLs money. You never pay off anyone if you’re right. The NFL basically admitted of collusion with that settlement. Good for Kaep. I hope he gets generational wealth like those lying NFL owners that colluded…the real pigs in this case.

    Everybody here is speculating nobody knows for sure, but no matter how you spin it he WON! Trust me there would be no settlement if the amount was not significant (the lawyers have to get their third). When the arbitrator rejected the NFL’s effort for summary judgment there had to be significant facts favorable to Kap to move the case forward.

    As for him not taking the money, money was the ONLY possible outcome. He couldn’t get an order for them to hire him, money damages is how you make a plaintiff whole (and yes I am an attorney). There is no way the NFL can spin this into anything but a loss.
    —————————————

    If you’re keeping score I guess. Kaepernick will never play or discuss this situation ever again. The kneeling, or broadcasting of it by the media, is effectively over. A little loose pocket change to the NFL for that to happen is worth it. I’m guessing the NFL brass isn’t standing around today feeling like they lost. If you want to find the winners just look toward the lawyers on both sides. That’s who wins in settlements.

  50. If this was anything other than a money grab, Kap should’ve stood his ground and exposed the NFL and its owners regardless if he actually won or not. Now we know Kap and his attorney had nothing. The only winner is Kaps lawyer. Probably made millions from Kap on top of NFL’s settlement.

    You have no clue about who is ignorant about the flag code. The stupidity I was referring to was your statement “…holding it horizontal (parallel to the ground) which is CLEARLY a violation of U.S. Flag Code.” That is not correct. You cannot “carry” it horizontal. That is different than “holding” it horizontal and it refers to things like a parade where the flag is traveling. That is why the other commenter was correct in the funeral comment. I only decided to comment when you chose to insult him and his service while implying your superior knowledge or experience. You may have a comprehension problem since there is the example of mistaking carry and holding and the additional mistake of believing I was referring to the flag code as stupid rather than you or your comments. I’d suggest you follow your own advice this time champ because you didn’t learn what you thought you did.

    I’m pretty sure Kaepernick and his lawyers would say they did win… while the league and its lawyers would say they won. What’s the old saying…? A good compromise is when everybody feels like they got screwed?

  53. Good strategy.
    1. Become crap qb

It’s a violation of the Flag Code, pure and simple, and the fact that Military funerals are excluded specifically further reinforces the point: If you’re all outraged about Kaepernick “disrespecting the flag” but you’re okay with the Code violation before every game, it was never about the flag to begin with.

    I guess I’m technically at fault for actually knowing it’s against the Code instead of having to copy/paste it right from the start, so if clinging to semantic nonsense like “holding” vs “carrying” makes you feel better about yourself, knock yourself out. Jebus knows I love it.

    …..here comes the “deflection force”….uprooting the goalposts and moving them back 20 yards. Can you hear the “I just want it to go away”? I hope Kaep takes his NFL Royalties and never plays another down in the NFL and continues to follow his calling and support the causes he believes in.

    As do most of us. Whatever exactly that calling is that just happened to coincide with being benched.

    =================================================

    We’re “okay” with it because it is being done to celebrate the flag, not disrespect it, a flag that size isn’t made for flying from a pole but to be held above a football field, it’s not being “carried” but held during the anthem and then folded. NFL players wearing US flag stickers on their helmets is against the code but we don’t complain because it is CELEBRATING the USA. Not burned and defecated on at a left wing riot.

  57. The Almighty Cabbage says:

    The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.


    This line from your cut & paste is what you should be focused on. The point is that one side is acting in accordance with that last line. The other is not. The rest of your argument is deflection and hair splitting. That last line is why so many are offended.

  58. That fraud never had a cause. He started acting like a jerk and when he got called out on it he made excuses to try and make it look better and then suddenly he was the face of a movement. Do you know what people who believe in a cause and want to make change do? They go out and speak about it and raise money and awareness for change. He`s said virtually nothing publicly to promote his “cause” and worked the back channels to get himself paid.
    Celebrate a sellout fraud if you want but his supporters just got used.

  59. Now if only football writers and SJWs can stop talking about the guy, all will be well. It was a shakedown all along, I wonder if Jesse and Al approved the deal as well (they’re specialists).

    Is your allegiance to the flag, or to “the party?” Just answer that very simple question honestly. It really isn’t that hard… or shouldn’t be.

    —————

    1) This kneeling issue started when Obama was President, and those who hate the kneeling now, hated the kneeling then. So…I’m not sure why you’re making this a Trump issue.

    2) Yes, if the NFL is breaking the Flag code, they should correct themselves. That said, if you can’t see the difference between intentionally going out of your way to disrespect the Flag and all it stands for, and (most likely) unintentionally breaking a little known rule with the Flag code, you may be the biased one.

    Remember Kaep probably would only get 30-40% of any settlement..the lawyer takes 30% and the govt about 40%
    ——-
    Govt gets their money first
    Kap still pays lawyer 30% of pre tax settlement
    Kap ends up with less than 30%

    Don’t believe anyone who says you don’t pay tax on settlements…..I have been down that road and you certainly do.
    There is no such thing as a tax free settlement.

  63. Colin Kaepernick, like all these other professional victims/activists, are nothing but sellouts. All they care about is money and attention and being treated like heroes for doing absolutely nothing. If you give them enough money, they will shut up go away. Colin will crawl back into his hole from which he came until he is broke. Then he’ll turn up again and will be begging for more money by publishing a book:’Poor Me, I’m Bankrupt: A Memoir’. Mark my words it’ll happen.

  64. You poor people; hate and prejudice might be your demises; Colin did just fine in the grievance. No one here knows anything. He will play football again and you all know nothing except how you think and feel. Kap changed the league. The Ravens and Texans QBs are nothing more than Kap lite, who happen to have no interest in social justice at this time.

  65. If they are not American citizens they don’t have to stand. Do you know that many that visit ballgames are foreign nationals who are visiting, students or workers. They don’t have to stand for American anthem. It’s their prerogative even if they are US citizens! Some idiots don’t think through anything and think they are patriotic. Do for your community and fellow American and that is patriotism enough!

    Kap was a bug pulled off the NFL’s windshield for making money. He is out of the NFL, but he got his. I hope he’s happy. I was at a baseball game last year and these children with their Mother sat for the National Anthem. I wanted to dump my beer on their heads and say “sorry”.

    That’s the first… maybe even the only… genuine, honest response I’ve seen from anyone on what appears to be your “side” in a very long time. I can appreciate that, and commend you for it… but it scares the living hell out of me and it should do the same to or for you.

    We all know, or should know, our entire society is built and based upon certain tenets. Tenets we hold absolute and unassailable. Far too many people today appear to not mind in the least if these tenets are thrown right out the window… as long as it’s their “side” doing the throwing; and they seem to have no problem whatsoever justifying it. I’m sure that sounds pretty extreme. That’s good. It’s supposed to.

    I don’t know about you, but it aggravates me no end to see some chucklehead in a big-ass diesel 4×4 with a filthy, torn, tattered and shredded, mud caked, black with soot, US Flag flying right behind his gigantic exhaust stacks as he “rolls coal” all over it. Some people will surely read this and get themselves all wound up, thinking I must surely drive a Prius and hate ‘Murrica. Those people could not possibly BE further off the mark. I myself drive a big, bad, 30 year old, gas guzzling 4×4 and an old Harley-Davidson. It also sends me nearly over the edge to see where some clown hung our flag out in front of his place and left it there around the clock, unlighted in the dark, rain or shine, snow and ice, until it’s nothing more than a sad old rag. A sad old rag that should be properly disposed of… with dignity and respect.

    And then, to hear either one of these types of disrespectful clowns yapping about Kaepernick (or anyone else) is a real slap in the face. When other people get “outraged” about Kaepernick et al but don’t seem to care one whit about the blatant disrespect shown by all those hundreds, if not thousands, of people that aren’t/i> Kaepernick, it’s false patriotism at best and utter hypocrisy at worst. But I guess it’s all okay because they’re “celebrating” the flag?

  68. Do you think the NFL settled because there wasn’t any evidence of collusion? Come on

    The league settled because evidence was found that some owners colluded together not to sign Kaep and Reid. The NFL would’ve fought tooth and nail to come out innocent of those accusations. I’m not saying all owners were guilty but the league had too. The league didn’t Want those emails and messages being leaked to the media. It would’ve painted the league in the bad light which majority of there players are minorities.

    Also, I doubt this was a money grabbed. He lost an opportunity (not right) to earn a living playing football for kneeling and was blackballed doing so while other terrible QBs continue to play in the league. We know he deserved another opportunity when Hoyer, Gabbert, Bortles, and other below avg QBs get chance after chance. If you’re going to talk about how terrible he was as a QB, then please tell me how those other QBs are still in the league.

    Good post except for the assumption in the last paragraph. I believe many who dislike the kneeling by the players are equally bothered by the people in the crowd who are sitting, talking, wearing hats, taking photos, etc. You assume that people only take issue with Kaepernick and do not care about the other examples like the truck you mentioned. This is a football site and Kaepernick did his “protesting” on the field in front of cameras and then had articles written about it. People responded to the action mentioned in the numerous articles. I can say with certainty, if this site had an article about a guy desecrating the flag on his truck or about one of my all-time favorite players disrespecting flag/country, I would be on here voicing my displeasure and I suspect many of those so called false patriots would have the integrity to do so as well.
