Hey Kaepernick! How is that oppression protest working out for you now? Was it worth it?
Colin Kaepernick has been a disaster for the San Franciso 49ers and for the NFL.
The 2016 Pre-Season began with Kaepernick protesting so-called “oppression” by kneeling during the National Anthem before every game. When the Season started, he continued the protests and was even joined by a few others around the league.
Not only did the protests cause a number of unwanted, unneeded distractions, it caused NFL ratings to plummet. In fact, the ratings may never come back, as many believe the product is not as good as it once was. Besides, who wants to watch a bunch of whiny millionaires?
To make matters worse for Kaepernick, he started the Season as a backup quarterback, and when he did get a chance to start, he did not help the 49ers at all. The team is now 1-9.
Perhaps it is time for some changes in San Francisco?
Things have definitely changed for Kaepernick’s contract.
Conservative Tribune reports:
In October, the controversial athlete reportedly signed a revised deal with the NFL team that effectively deleted the last three years of his contract — 2018 through 2020 — which could make him a free agent in March, according to USA Today.
It is likely that Colin Kaepernick will be completely out of a job as this contract plays out.
The protests are costly for the team and the NFL and Kapernick’s play is lackluster at best. He has had a number of injuries, to include: shoulder problems; thumb and knee difficulties; and a “tired throwing arm.”
“Physically, he is not where he was pre-injury,” said his head coach, Chip Kelly.
Perhaps Kaepernick can move to a country where he will be less oppressed?
Many are calling this karma or justice for the embattled quarterback.
