COLIN WHO? You Left the Fans and They Don’t Want You Back

After many fans feel he thumbed his nose at them and America, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick now says what in a recent interview?

Well, no one is completely sure and many don’t even care.

When Kaepernick initially began sitting then kneeling during the national anthem he said:

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

CBS reporter Jason La Canfora recently interviewed the controversial Kaepernick about his desire to play for an NFL team.

Following the interview, CBS Sports and other news outlets implied that Kaepernick would be willing to stand for the national anthem if any NFL team would be willing to hire him to play football.

However, CBS Sports almost immediately removed the article from their website and La Canfora issued an update.

In other words, there is nothing new to report about the on field ‘protests’ that Kaepernick and others have been demonstrating while in uniform.

Prior to the updates, the CBS reporter posted these tweets about Kaepernick’s state of mind and his hope to play for a team in the near future:

La Canfora wrote:

“After sitting down with Colin Kaepernick for several hours, says the QB is still actively trying to play in the NFL.

Impossible not to notice what kind of shape is in. Working out 6-plus hours a day. Throwing hundreds of passes daily…

As much as he is dedicating himself to playing again – and Colin told me he won’t give up on that dream – he never appeared angry…

Kaepernick seemed almost serene as we talking about his journey. He was always calm and thoughtful discussing the situation…

Bottom line – I can assure you that would be willing to work out any place, any time, for any NFL team. He is not quitting”

While some defend Kaepernick’s actions believing his ‘protests’ are done because of racial oppression, many others see his ‘activism’ as behavior that should be kept off the field and done during his own time.

NFL fans pay to see a football game not have to endure political “speech”.

The most recent report from La Canfora seems to be an attempt to justify Kaepernick’s behavior, garner sympathy from fans and give this “highly-skilled” (sarcasm alert) QB a place on someone’s roster.

Sorry! It didn’t work.

For many past loyal football fans (those who no longer watch football because of Kaepernick and his inappropriate in your face, on the field, game day political agenda) their response is:
