Quite a canundram isn't it? Sorry for spelling, LOL!

Athletes have been protesting for years as some know anything of history.

But once Kaperneck did it on the Foot Ball field, all bets seem to come off. Once POTUS started Twittering all gloves came off! He has now polarized all of the NFL Teams and Owners. They are now protesting him and not anything else. He has solidified the NFL has he not?

I get sick and tired of Black lives matter as whites and all races are getting killed. COP's are being killed so do not Their lives matter? Do not white lives matter when they are killed by Blacks?

What bothers me most is not the color of ones skin or ones religion but the persons actions is up most!

He was already due somewhere around $14m per year. Word is that he was asking for at least 10. For that, you need to be a starter and a starter for awhile in the future. He was better than he is now, making some teams think he's going downhill. Speaking as a Browns fan (I know, have a drink for me), we wouldn't entertain him because he's older, we have been desperately searching for a career QB for so many years it's not funny (see here, and it's not even updated yet: http://dailysnark.com/infamous-brown...s-gets-update/ ), and it's just too much money that it would hurt the rest of the team, as we need all the help we can get on other parts of the field. Just my $.02.

Okay, most teams think Kaepernick is not worth $10m/year. (The Ravens brought him in for talks though.)
The teams that truly need an experienced QB (Colts, Jets, maybe a couple of others) should sign him at less with performance incentives to get his pay higher.

Did you know that Colin's reason for kneeling is from an Army & NFL veteran? He was sitting for the anthem when he had conversations with former Seattle Seahawks long snapper, Nate Boyer, who served in Iraq. Nate said that Army vets kneel for fallen soldiers and that could be a better way to honor the lives that have been lost through police brutality.

Absolutely, ChioLu. Seahawks brought him in too. Yeah, there's a lot of flak with his kneeling, but I honestly think that the teams that need good QBs either need ones that are way cheaper or ones that are just starting out and will be their career QB.
