Colin Kaepernick received recognition last year when he refused to stand for the national anthem and instead chose to sit or kneel. Now that the NFL season is over and drafting has begun again he is struggling to find a team who will sign him because nobody wants to be associated with him.
Sports commentator Lawrence Jones appeared on Dana Loesch’s show with NFL Agent Eugene Lee to discuss the real reason he has issues with Kaepernick and his show of so-called social justice. Lee said,
“If you look at it from the outside looking in, I mean that’s what it appears like. I think the situation right now with Colin is that he’s without a job, and I saw an analysis saying that part of it is due to his playing ability, but if you look around the league right now, you see some of these free agent quarterbacks that are being signed with deals, there is absolutely no way that it relates solely to his playing ability.”
When Jones asked Lee if Kaepernick deserved the backlash he is getting he had the perfect response. Lee said that NFL organizations are private companies and have the right to make decisions that will create the best result for their organization. If they feel a player will negatively affect the outcome of their season and choose not to sign them then that is their decision.
Dana has her channel on TheBlaze and airs episodes live weekdays 6–7 p.m. ET or anytime on-demand. Kaepernick knew what he was doing when he made a national sensation out of sitting for the anthem. People were bound to not be pleased. This is the United States of America after all. In a sports entertainment business people will choose not to pay to see a team if they feel they don’t like the players.
Thus, it is perfectly reasonable for teams to not want to sign Kaepernick. He’s a grown man. He deserves the suffer the consequences of his own actions.
