Much of the country has had more than enough of racist Colin Kaepernick who can’t get a job and wants to complain about it.
With the exception of the handful of players in the NFL who have picked up his protests where he left off, the most irritated people with his behavior are probably those he once competed against. With a lot of time on his hands now that he’s unemployed, Kaepernick is spending it by stirring the pot to create more problems and try to maintain some level of importance in society and the sport of football.
Although the NAACP and New Yorkers have separately come to his defense, crying racism at the NFL headquarters for the reason he hasn’t gotten a job this season, not everyone is buying what he’s selling for why he hasn’t been hired.
This sorry excuse is just that and one player he didn’t stand a chance against on the field and now off of it, had enough with what Kaepernick tried to pull today and responded appropriately to the situation.
Kaepernick’s day took a turn for the worse after the protests on behalf of his unemployment proved to be ineffective. The problem with not being picked for a team has little to nothing to do with his racist protest of the National Anthem and has everything to do with his inability to play the game better than his competitors.
Nobody understands the rules of the game and team recruitment more than Buffalo Bills superstar LeSean McCoy. The star player has worked hard to earn his spot on the team which means fighting for it, not crying to owners or the NFL for a position on any given team he wants. This isn’t a recreational league, it’s professional sports, and McCoy just shut Kaepernick up for good by saying the one thing that nobody else has, or was afraid to say.
Getting on a team and being paid millions for it, has more to do with than just how well you play. There’s something else that goes with it that race-baiting Kaepernick and his cohorts have a hard time grasping.

The Wild Card reports:
McCoy, 29, took a fairly diplomatic approach to the former 49er’s ongoing unemployment. The running back said social and political reasons might be keeping Kaepernick out of the NFL but his unemployment has far more to do with his declining skills as a quarterback and the general distraction that all of his media attention would bring to a football team. (All emphasis ours.)
“[Kaepernick’s anthem protests] may have something to do with [his unemployment] but I think it also has a lot to do with his play,” McCoy said.
“I’m sure a lot of teams wouldn’t want him as their starting quarterback. Then it’s the chaos that comes along with it. It’s a lot. A team’s trying to win and not have a distraction on a team. … As a player, there’s certain players that can be on a team with big distractions, and there’s other players that they’re not good enough where it’s worth it. I think his situation is not good enough to have him on a team with all the attention that comes along with it.”
“I’m sure if a guy like [Tom] Brady or a guy like — whoever is your favorite player, Odell Beckham or a guy like that — you’ll deal with that attention and play him. With certain guys, it’s not worth it.”
Simply put, franchise owners and coaches have to evaluate if his skill is in proportion to the problems he causes. Clearly, Kaepernick’s declining performance wasn’t worth the risk to any team or franchise. He’s a headache, a problem child, and a detriment, not asset, to tickets and merchandise sales.
The fallout that we’re seeing from this man-child and his team of sympathizers is the result of the mentality that everyone gets a trophy. You don’t get a multi-
You don’t get a multi-million dollar NFL contract by crying racism or any other excuse for your poor performance. You compete for it and if you happen to earn it, then you fight like hell to maintain it which starts by respecting the opportunity, the team, the country, and those who sign your paycheck.
