NFL ‘Disappointed’ at Kaepernick for Not Appearing at Workout, writes Breitbart.
However, after Kaepernick refused to agree to the league’s conditions regarding the workout, the league’s original anthem protester did a work out at a local Atlanta high school instead.
If Kaepernick wanted to play football he would have shown for the workout scheduled by the NFL, signed the waivers, and played his very best ‘game’. He would have had his head in his performance rather than confronting perfectly reasonable NFL requests. If he could have demonstrated that he could play and be part of a ‘team’, it’s likely that some organization, either out of ‘woke’ guilt or need, would have picked him up. But no.
Kaepernick proved again why he is poison for any NFL Franchise and why he is poison for the sport. Regardless of whatever talent he may still have, there is not one team out there that can afford to lose even 5 % of it’s focus and continue to win games, much less be a contender. Colin should just make the decision to be the best shoe salesman he can be….and be done with football. Because football should be done with him.
LeBron James no longer King James for Hong Kong protesters
The AP writes,
When the ball smashed into a photo of LeBron James’ face stuck above the hoop and dropped into the basket, the Hong Kong protesters cheered.
They also trampled on jerseys bearing his name and gathered in a semicircle to watch one burn.
James’ standing among basketball fans in Hong Kong took a hit because of comments the NBA star made about free speech. Fans gathered on courts amid Hong Kong’s high-rise buildings Tuesday to vent their anger.
Nike and the NBA are reportedly shooting a new advertising promotion. The soon to be released series will be titled, “The NBA Stands With China”, and will star LeBron James and Coach Steve Kerr.
Sadly, it’s almost believable. It seems there is no level of low that the craven hypocrites in the NBA won’t stoop, kneel, bow, or kowtow to. Always remember, you have a choice of what to watch on TV and especially, what to put on your feet. And also remember, if the NBA ‘stands’ with China, you can ‘sit’ out the season.
