MelP brought this beautiful story to my attention yesterday, and it may the the only real joy I’ve had since getting sick. NFL part-time scrub quarterback and full-time social justice warrior Colin Kaepernick filed a collusion grievance against the NFL, claiming every NFL team conspired to not sign the free agent, even though the man is thoroughly unqualified for a starting position.
COLIN Kaepernick delivered a salvo Sunday that will effectively end his NFL career. Desperation and frustration might have prompted his collusion grievance against the league stemming from his continued unemployment, but this much is clear: The polarizing quarterback will never take another snap under center again.
Kaepernick’s transition from signal caller to social justice advocate is now complete. His NFL life is over.
As awesome as the above sweet caramel outer layer is, the delicious vanilla creme filling is below.
Proving collusion, however, will be a Herculean task for Team Kaepernick absent hard evidence. Although there are clear provisions in the Collective Bargaining Agreement prohibiting clubs from working in concert to conspire against players, what are the chances of Kaepernick’s attorney unearthing a smoking gun (texts, emails, etc.) implicating owners in that regard?
More than one story I read stated Kaepernick’s case is nearly impossible to prove, and if this imbecile had any hard evidence, the suit would have been brought before this point. Kaepernick’s only evidence is he wants to play in the NFL, so that should be enough to pay him millions of dollars to fail miserably.
Kaepernick’s antics caused the end of his career, and is quickly causing the end of the NFL as we know it. I am actually uncertain which fate makes me giggle more.
