Colin Kaepernick: Needs Cheese For His Whine

Colin Kaepernick doesn’t get it.  Yesterday, he complained about being denied playtime in the NFL, even though he is to blame for the day’s events. Methinks he needs a hefty dose of cheese to go with his whine. 

For some inexplicable reason, the NFL decided to give him another chance. They put together a tryout at the Atlanta Falcons training facility, and sent the the teams a memo telling them to show up.

What did Kaepernick do? First, he wanted all media access. Then he wanted a film team there.

The NFL said, NOPE. We will do it our way. Which, quite frankly, is how it should be.

Now, we all know the history of Colin Kaepernick. In 2016, he was literally phoning it in with the San Francisco 49’ers. 

  • Guaranteed $12 million salary
  • Four interceptions against the Cardinals in Week 3
  • Slammed in the press by his own locker room
  • Total unraveling during Week 7, couldn’t even connect with receivers at ten yards

You know, if you wanted to make an impression, kneeling during the National Anthem and then tanking on the field as a player…wasn’t the way to go.

So, Kaepernick opted to go to free agent status. Guess what? The Denver Broncos took a good look at him. Decided to approach him with an offer of QB with salary of $7 million. Thankfully, as bad as the Broncos are this season, Kaepernick decided that $7 million just wasn’t good enough.

Fast forward to yesterday. A major tryout for him in front of twenty four teams was slated to take place. And then…

So, he waits until the very last minute, when most of the team representatives are already inside the facility and the media is set up outside, and pulls this stunt? The location he chose was over an hour away. The NFL was NOT pleased.

I don’t blame them. But the tryout went forward. I still can’t fathom why any team reps bothered to attend.

Understandably, a significant number of team representatives decided they weren’t going to play his game, and left.

Now, if you watch the video above, you’ll see he is wearing a very interesting t-shirt. No, I’m not talking about the Nike thing. I’m talking about this t-shirt.

The inference being that he is enslaved by…the NFL?

“”I’ve been ready for three years,” Kaepernick said. “I’ve been denied for three years. We all know why I came out here. [I] showed it today in front of everybody. We have nothing to hide. So we’re waiting for the 32 owners, 32 teams, Roger Goodell, all of them stop running. Stop running from the truth. Stop running from the people.

“We’re out here. We’re ready to play. We’re ready to go anywhere. My agent, Jeff Nalley, is ready to talk [to] any team. I’ll interview with any team at any time. I’ve been ready.””

I don’t think there’s enough cheese to cover that whine.

Seriously, the NFL did NOT have to give you this opportunity. The NFL could’ve just kept on ignoring you. Instead, they put something together so that you Colin, could have a chance to show your stuff.

Were you humble and appreciative about this opportunity? No

Instead, you bitched about not getting to have the media watch the practice and listen to your interviews with the team reps. You whined and blamed the NFL for all that has gone wrong in your life.

Need a Hurt Feelings Report?

What Colin completely and utterly fails to understand is that this was a freaking JOB INTERVIEW!

The prospective employee does NOT get to call the shots on this! Period.

Yet that is exactly what he tried to do. Is it any wonder that the NFL wanted him to sign a waiver that also included employment-related issues?

As for that Kunta Kinte shirt. Yes, it is a direct reference to the character in “Roots.” Does that mean that Kaepernick has been enslaved by the NFL in any way? Not one bit.

He’s already tried that, but even money says he’ll try that again if a team is stupid enough to offer him a job.

Colin Kaepernick had an opportunity to turn things around yesterday. Instead, he whined about everything and implied he’s a slave to the NFL’s unrealistic expectations. Given that attitude, would YOU want a toxic employee on your roster?

    Well, the technical term is narcissism. Or attention-seeking. Basically because people had stopped paying attention to you and you needed your attention fix. If you think the answer was something else, you probably lack in self-awareness, too.

    The prospective employee does NOT get to call the shots on this!
    Well, I disagree a little, Nina. A guy who is a Heisman winner and in his prime – he can call the shots. Or some guy who led in sacks AND flew A10s – he can call the shots. Because the teams want to compete for them. But bum QB out of the game for 3 years and obnoxious as hell on top of his prima donna attitude? No, HE does NOT get to call the shots.

    he’s a slave to the NFL’s unrealistic expectations
    No, he’s a slave to his inability to do anything constructive except play mediocre (I’m being kind) football. He wasn’t too bad at that until he got that girlfriend, who convinced him his other talent lay in claiming victim status simultaneously with a multi-million dollar salary.

    One silver lining about all this Kaepernick stuff? I’m at least reading stories about football. Because I honestly haven’t cared in a looooooooong time. (Of course, I still don’t ~care~. I just like watching train wrecks.)

  • Kaepernick is probably aware that he doesn’t have what it takes to play pro football. However, he needs publicity to “remain relevant.” Without publicity, no more product endorsements. No more speaking engagements. Possibly no more hot dates. So he does what he can to “keep the controversy alive.” However, deliberately walking away from the NFL’s too-generous opportunity for a re-evaluation might be the last card he has to play.

      He sucks on toast as a QB, and deep down, he knows that.
      So, he uses radical chic to distract from the fact that he’s a terrible QB.
      He’s hoping that Nike will keep shoveling the money his way because of his radical politics.

    At the Falcons’ facility, the people supervising and participating in the workout would be chosen by the NFL and would meet NFL standards. Also, the NFL would have the unedited video. Kaepernick moved to a High School, brought people, including several free agents no team has picked up as players, and has sole control of the video. Sounds more like a staged PR event than a serious workout to prove that he is ready to play pro football.
