Since the second Colin Kaepernick decided to take a knee for the National Anthem and continue doing it for every single game of the season, his career began to crumble and his reputation devolved into being a nobody. Just when he thought he had taken the last hit to his ego, when not a single team wanted to draft him as a free agent, he just got blindsided my more bad news that he definitely deserved.
Kaepernick was reaching a high point in his NFL career when he decided to go low for an entire season and use his public platform to disrespect our country and those who defend it. He didn’t think he woud pay for it in any way, especially with the support he got from Barack Obama and all of his Black Lives matter goons. However, now, he’s wondering where all of his “friends” are who once had his back but are now nowhere to be found when he needs them most after what just came out.
When the free agency first began over a week ago, Kaepernick probably just assumed that everyone would have forgotten about his sideline antics. They didn’t and definitely don’t want anything to do with his anti-American attitude at the huge risk he is to a team’s reputation. They aren’t just avoiding him because of what he represents and the fact that his playing skill has been on a steep decline — it’s also because NFL executives said that they “genuinely hate him,” Tribunist reported.
“First, some teams genuinely believe that he can’t play. They think he’s shot. I’d put that number at 20 percent,” an unnamed general manager said about Kaepernick and why people are avoiding him like the plague he is. The manager also saud that there is a general “fear the backlash from fans after getting him.” He’s practically public enemy number one in sports.
He’s practically public enemy number one in sports. Teams that could get around everything else to consider him, still can’t let go their hate for him. “Third, the rest genuinely hate him and can’t stand what he did [kneeling for the national anthem]. They want nothing to do with him. They won’t move on. They think showing no interest is a form of punishment. I think some teams also want to use Kaepernick as a cautionary tale to stop other players in the future from doing what he did,” the insider said. This is the biggest blow to his ego that and definitely the unforeseen punishment he had coming.
I really doubt getting on his knee in front of the country to make a misguided statement was really worth losing everything over.
