Crybaby Kaepernick Files Grievance Against NFL
Reports indicate that former 49ers quarterback and self-proclaimed Black Lives Matter spokesman Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance against the NFL under its collective bargaining agreement, alleging the existence an effective conspiracy to keep him from playing in the league.
According to court documents originally obtained and released by ABC news, Kaepernick and lawyers are accusing the NFL of “unusual and bizarre behavior” during the 2017 offseason.
“Multiple NFL head coaches and general managers stated that they wanted to sign Mr. Kaepernick, only to mysteriously go silent with no explanation and no contract offer made to Mr. Kaepernick,” Kaepernick's complaint reads. “Other NFL teams stated they had no interest in Mr. Kaepernick and refused to explain why.”
Kaepernick’s complaint also singles out President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, claiming that they have “engaged in various public relations stunts designed to retaliate against Mr. Kaepernick and other players that have joined in Kaepernick’s peaceful protest.” The complaint even goes as far as naming Trump “an organizing force in the collusion among team owners in their conduct towards [Kaepernick]”.
If Kaepernick was the poster boy for the left's divisive racial identity politics, he is now also the poster boy for its utter rejection of personal responsibility.
Having almost singlehandedly turned what was once a unifying national pastime into yet another pawn in America's greater partisan game — and becoming the most loathed player in the league in the process — Kaepernick now demands that NFL teams pretend the last 14 months didn't happen.
Kaepernick was positively eager to turn the NFL into a political spectacle and abuse his privileged position to push a radical political agenda, but now he refuses to take any responsibility for his actions, and indeed would have the NFL continue to suffer for them.
