Kaepernick workout

The latest chapter in the bizarre blackballing of NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick for kneeling during the National Anthem will unfold on Saturday. The NFL -as part of their legal settlement?- announced that they would hold workout and any interested teams could attend. Totally unprecedented. Normally a team would just work him out themselves if they were interested
Normally any open workout or combine would be held on a Tuesday, to give coaches and GMs an opportunity to attend.

It smells like more bullshit from the slave owners.

Slavery ended 150 years ago in the United States.

Slavery ended with the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment in 1865. I'll leave it to you to f*ck up 2019-1865=?

Wow,I'm not even American like you are, and I was off by only four years. You certainly are reaching, Chief.

In recap, T-Bones has claimed to be:

-Military Veteran
-Historian
-Lawyer
-Accountant


The internet is fun, since you can be whoever you want to be. Here is a request of you, from your real offline job:

Take it easy with the sauce on my BigMac next time I am ordering at the Drive-Thru, Chief. No pickles either. Thanks.

If Black people do not enjoy the quality of life other ethnic groups that have suffered persecution enjoy (Asians, Jews and Irish people), it's their own damn fault for blaming the White Man for their problems. This is a big issue for Aboriginal Canadians. Many vocal leaders have made careers of whining about big bad Whitey, that they hinder the welfare of their own communities.

Be like the Asians. Don't complain, work hard, and good things will happen to your people.

13 teams are going to attend so far

obviously there was an agreement among them not to do it.

he could start for at least half a dozen teams right now. there has never been a worse year for quarterbacks in the nfl.

If he can keep his mouth shut unlike he did with Elway and Lewis then he should be fine.

Ask the players union why he can't train without a contract. If he gets injured without a contract and gets hurt, who is on the hook for medical and pension?

Says the guy who down votes every post of his adversaries, regardless of content, and considers any place with a drug problem in Canada, a "shithole," in spite of his reliance on a certain legal opiate to get through the day.

Looks like the old saying "takes one to know one"comes in handy.

You're no one's adversary. You are just another trolling asshole.

I'm not an accountant.

It's funny that you think all this is so unbelievable. Just because you're not smart enough to do it.

The Kaep workout is a dog-and-pony show the NFL had to agree to as part of the settlement. Which is why they're holding it on a Saturday in the middle of the season, which is when most teams are preparing for/travelling to Sunday's game.

The down day in the NFL season is Tuesday.

Still, I've pointed out before that Kaep woulda been a Baltimore Raven two years ago if his idiot girlfriend hadn't deliberately and gratuitously insulted owner Steve Biscotti and superstar Ray Lewis while they were considering Kaep.

Watch out Tec, you're starting to sound like a "white natty".

Be honest. You are obsessed with me. If I were a betting man, I would wager that when you awake in the morning, the first thing you think of is ways to usurp me. Either that or remember if you have enough Percocet to get through the day.

The workout has been moved from the Atlanta Falcons facility to a local high school and pushed back to 4 eastern and also opened to the media.

Kapernick will bring his own receivers, although the NFL has said they will provide 3.

The entire thing is looking very bad even for a league that specializes in looking bad.

Can't get any worse for Colin, unless he grabs someone else's helmet and hits that person in the head with it.

Kapernicks lawyer speculating that the entire thing is being done to prevent a further lawsuit against the NFL by Kapernick.

What they have managed to do is prove beyond any doubt that there is collusion in the nfl to prevent this player form playing.

Thats against the law, but rich white guys are above the law.
