So there was a protest outside of NFL headquarters for unemployed quarterback Colin Kaepernick. And as you can imagine, some real winners showed up:

Oh yea, once you’ve got Linda Sarsour on your side you’ve officially lost any chance of being employed ever again. A woman who said this about Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a woman’s rights advocate who escaped a forced marriage and was the victim of genital mutilation in Somalia as a child:
If you’ve ever found yourself associating yourself with Linda Sarsour (like at the women’s march) congratulations, you’re an idiot. She’s not a liberal, she’s an asshole. Liberals didn’t always let people like her and Kapernick take the lead, but they kind of have lately. And it’s kind of a big reason why their worst nightmare is President. Just sayin.
Anyway, I’m sick of talking about Kaepernick but it’s the story that just won’t go away. My thoughts on it are as follows:
- He’s absolutely good enough to play in the NFL. He wouldn’t start on most teams, but he’s better than some. He’s easily good enough to be a backup or third stringer though.
- He is being blackballed by NFL owners based entirely on his “activism.”
- NFL owners have every right to blackball him if they think he’d be bad for business.
- Kaepernick is not serious about football, which is a problem when you play quarterback. His primary focus is Twitter activism. This is not the kind of person any team that’s interested in long term success would have any sort of interest in.
- Kaepernick is one of the worst spokesmen BLM could’ve chosen. He’s not smart. He’s not articulate. He mostly just retweets memes. On the rare occasion he does actually answer questions he shows that he doesn’t understand what he’s protesting for.
- He wore a Castro shirt to a press conference, and couldn’t understand why Cuban-exile reporters in Miami had a problem with it. He actually lectured them about the virtues of the bloody dictator, who they all risked their lives to escape from.
- He didn’t vote, so his activism is completely useless.
- He did this all for a chick. Five years ago he was in the Super Bowl and he didn’t have shit to say. Then he started dating some crazy BLM chick and he’s a diehard for the cause. He gave up his NFL career for pussy.
- ESPN has never, ever wanted a player to get a job more than him. So they why don’t they offer him a job? They align with his politics and they hire ex-players all the time. It’s almost as if they know how stupid and limited he is too.
- Kaepernick wore police pig socks to practice last year, and recently tweeted out a meme comparing cops to slave catchers. When you do shit like that in your free time you’re gonna piss a lot of people off. NFL owners have the right to not hire someone who is going to turn off their fan base. If he was Richard Sherman he could get away with it. But Kaepernick is not good enough to do that. Welcome to 2017 – where things you write on social media affect your job.
- Kaepnernick isn’t being blackballed because he took a knee. Everyone else who took a knee last year is still employed. He’s being blackballed because of the insane shit he says and posts on Twitter.

All-Pro running back Lesean McCoy understands these simple facts, and he’s about to be in a world of shit for what he said today:

“It’s a lot more than just he’s not on the team because he doesn’t want to stand for the national anthem,” McCoy said Thursday. “That may have something to do with it, but I think also it has a lot to do with his play. I’m sure a lot of teams wouldn’t want him as their starting quarterback. That chaos that comes along with it, it’s a lot.
“As a team, trying to win and not have a distraction on the team, I just take that as a player — there’s certain players that could be on the team with big distractions, and there’s other players that it’s not good enough or not worth it. I think his situation is not good enough to have him on the 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.”
McCoy was asked how Kaepernick’s situation compares to that of former NFL quarterback Michael Vick, who became a Philadelphia Eaglesteammate of McCoy in 2009 after spending time in prison on federal dogfighting charges.
“He’s 10 times better than Kaepernick,” McCoy said of Vick. “You’ll deal with that situation, that attention, that media aspect of it. The good, the bad attention you’ll get. Compared to Kaepernick, it’s like, he’s not really that good [enough] of a player to deal with.
“So people outside of sports don’t really know that. They see only one side of black guy standing up for a good reason [and] the NFL is against him, but I think it’s more than that. I think it has to do with some of that. But also, dealing with him with him on the team you’re trying to build together. There’s so many outsiders [that] can mess up a team. I can see both sides, I really can.”
Couldn’t have said it better myself. He’s absolutely correct too. What Michael Vick did was worse than Kaepernick. He went to jail for it. But Vick was still in his prime when he got out of the can, and most importantly he wasn’t gonna kill dogs anymore. Kaepernick could easily get a job if he just promised owners he’d focus on football and quit doing controversial shit on Twitter. It’s not that hard. But he’s not willing to give that up because being an activist means more to him than being a football player. He’s made his choice and now he has to live with the consequences – unemployment.
Anyway, search for “Lesean McCoy coon” on Twitter to see the reaction he’s gotten:

“Coon” is the new “Uncle Tom.” It’s what you’re called when you’re a black person who thinks for yourself instead of following the herd. Shady gets it. Shady is Turtleboy.
