Wow! A while back there was an extensive and interesting thread on the whole Kaepernick subject, at that time my view point was that the NFL had screwed him and tried to shut him up and eliminate him from the league and basically tried to ignore a major cultural issue because it was uncomfortable and controversial to deal with, I cheered his view then and I stand by that. However, his recent antics are to say the least anti productive, silly and embarrassing, I'd say pretty much his recent antics have little to do with football and much to do with making a fuss and drawing attention to his cause which whether rightfully or not, has faded from the headlines???...........Peace........joe

Agreed. He wants to be a martyr and an activist, rather than a football player, and Iím fine with that.

What a horrible example for today's youth. Instead of working hard and trying to impress the NFL to get hired, this guy thinks hes going to be at the top calling the shots - imagine being his possible employer and having to deal with this- no thanks

I don't think he was ever trying to get hired.

After the fact here, it looks like the whole thing was some kind of stunt on both ends, I don't think any franchises had any intention of offering this guy a position, nor di I think he wants to play again?...........Peace.......joe

I don't understand. He was SO POPULAR here when he was on his knees. What has changed?

Hahahahaha!

Huge PR stunt by the NFL.

They tried to sneak in a waiver to prevent him from ever taking any future legal action and wouldn't let the media cover the workout.

Smart move by CK to change the venue and include media coverage.

Noone seems to remember it was a MILITARY person who suggested he kneel as a sign of protest.
