TALK ABOUT YOUR FRIVOLOUS LAW SUITS …
NFL free agent QB Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance against NFL owners accusing them of collusion by not signing him to play and keeping him out of the leauge. REALLY? It is you who have kept yourself out of the leauge my son. There is no guarantee that you are allowed to play. No one is forced to sign you. Every team has made their decisions independently. No one had to collude when it came to having a cancer on the team. There are plenty of former players that had more talent than you who never go another chance to play and they hardly brought the division and three ring circus to the mix. The NFL has not fired any of the players who continue to take a knee and disrespect the national anthem, flag and the brave men and women who have fought for our freedoms. Even though it is in their right to do so. The position of QB is much more than just talent. I would question any organization that would knowingly bring in such a divisive cancer like Kaepernick who would split a locker room and a fan base to the point of no return. Or how about the fact, he really is not that good, especially since his game has been figured out by opposing D’s.. This is not collusion, its good business. Colin, there is always Canada.
By the way, wasn’t it Kaepernick who restructured his contract with the 49ers and opted out of his contract himself to become a free agent. Talk about your frivolous law suits. By when your attorney is Mark Geragos, what would one expect. What’s the matter Lisa Bloom, Gloria Allred were unavailable?
Kaepernick and his attorneys accuse NFL teams of displaying “unusual and bizarre behavior” during the 2017 offseason, according to the court documents originally obtained by ABC News.
“Multiple NFL head coaches and general managers stated that they wanted to sign Mr. Kaepernick, only to mysteriously go silent with no explanation and no contract offer made to Mr. Kaepernick,” the complaint reads. “Other NFL teams stated they had no interest in Mr. Kaepernick and refused to explain why.”
The court filings also mention President Trump’s comments at a rally in Alabama last month, in which he referred to NFL players who kneel during the anthem as “sons of bitches.”
Kaepernick’s complaint says Trump and Vice President Mike Pence have “engaged in various public relations stunts designed to retaliate against Mr. Kaepernick and other players that have joined in Kaepernick’s peaceful protest.”
The complaint calls Trump “an organizing force in the collusion among team owners in their conduct towards” Kaepernick, and claims NFL owners have described Trump’s administration as “causing paradigm shifts in their views toward NFL players.”
Really, President Trump’s call for the SOB’s that stand to be fired caused a shift of NFL owners toward players? Why yes it did, it caused owners to insanely support the players and take a knee with them. This is a completely frivolous grievance. You made your bed Colin, there are consequences to one’s actions and it does not take collusion to not sign you, just common sense.
Michael Wilbon, Co-host of ESPN’s “Pardon the Interruption” Compares Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones to a Slave Owner (VIDEO)
UNREAL … SO NOW INDIVIDUALS WHO PAY BLACKS MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IS NOW A SLAVE OWNER.
ESPN’s Michael Wilbon, co-host of ‘Pardon the Interruption’ has compared Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to a slave owner following his comments that he would bench any player who did not stand for the national anthem. Wilbon said, on the sane day that ESPN suspended Jemele Hill for her social media comments against Jones and the Cowboys, “And the word that comes to my mind? and I don’t care who doesn’t like me using it?is plantation. The players are here to serve me, and they will do what I want. No matter how much I pay them, they are not equal to me. That’s what this says to me and mine.” Hmm, what will ESPN do to Wilbon? So Jerry Jones is only showing leadership when they agree with the players, really?
Michael Wilbon, you have freedom of speech to say anything, but there will be consequences to your actions. You are a fool if you think that entitled player making millions is a plantation mentality. You sir, just might be a racist yourself.
On the same day that Jemele Hill was suspended from ESPN for tweeting about politics, another network personality, Michael Wilbon, compared Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to a slave owner.
Mr. Wilbon, co-host of “Pardon the Interruption,” took issue with Mr. Jones’ stance that players who do not stand for the national anthem before football games will not play.
“And the word that comes to my mind? and I don’t care who doesn’t like me using it?is plantation,” Mr. Wilbon said on Monday’s show. “The players are here to serve me, and they will do what I want. No matter how much I pay them, they are not equal to me. That’s what this says to me and mine.”
ESPN declined to comment on Mr. Wilbon’s remarks.
Really, a plantation? So NFL players who make millions of dollars playing a game is slavery? Go figure. Keep it up ESPN, you are already hemorrhaging viewers, next up, you will never see another NFL contract. You are losing America and NFL fans every time a host opens their big mouth.
ESPN Suspends Host Jemele Hill From Network for Two Weeks … Now ESPN Has a Real Problem, LEFT & RIGHT Have Issue With Them
YOU THOUGHT THE NFL HAD A PROBLEM, NOW ESPN HAS AN EVEN BIGGER ONE …
It appears that the second time is the charm at ESPN. The Entertainment Sports Programming Network has suspended Jemele Hill for two weeks for violated the company’s social media guidelines for a second time. Hill called for fans to take action against the Dallas Cowboys after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones stated that players that did not stand for the national anthem would be benched. Hill wrote, “Change happens when advertisers are impacted. If you strongly reject what Jerry Jones said, the key is his advertisers.” Brilliant move on the part of Jemele Hill, seeing that ESPN has an NFL contract and if they ever want another one in the future, pissing off the NFL and attacking their teams is probably not the smart move.
Jemele Hill, the controversial ESPN anchor who called for fans to boycott the NFL after labeling President Trump a “white supremacist” on Twitter, has been suspended for two weeks by the network.
Hill violated the company’s social media guidelines a second time, according to ESPN, after she called on fans to take indirect action against the Dallas Cowboys after owner Jerry Jones told players they would be benched if they didn’t stand up during the national anthem.
“Change happens when advertisers are impacted,” Hill wrote. “If you strongly reject what Jerry Jones said, the key is his advertisers.”
Hill wasn’t formally punished for mocking Trump on Twitter, but ESPN took action when she called for fans to boycott the Cowboys’ advertisers.
“Jemele Hill has been suspended for two weeks for a second violation of our social media guidelines. She previously acknowledged letting her colleagues and company down with an impulsive tweet. In the aftermath, all employees were reminded of how much individual tweets may reflect negatively on ESPN and that such action would have consequences. Hence this decision,” an ESPN spokesman said in a statement.
Who didn’t see this coming after ESPN did nothing to Hill for her “white supremacist” comments toward President Donald Trump when he said that NFL player should stand and players should be fired if they do not stand. Now she is pretty much doing the same thing but this time toward an NFL owner. A note to Miss Hill, you have a code of conduct and rules where you work, so do NFL players. If the NFL and ESPN continue on this path, both will find themselves without viewers and a business.
UPDATE I: Rev. Al Sharpton threatens to boycott ESPN.
ESPN is in a bind now ad the liberal sports network has brought it on themselves. They are now taking it from the RIGHT and the LEFT after their pathetic handling ofplayers taking a knee during the national anthem.
The Rev. Al Sharpton and his National Action Network (NAN) announced they’ll stage a press conference in New York Tuesday to address ESPN’s suspension of Jemele Hill.
The protest will be held outside of the Disney-owned network’s Upper West Side offices at 12 noon ET. Hill, co-anchor of ESPN’s 6 p.m. ET “SportsCenter” with Michael Smith, was suspended two weeks by ESPN Monday for what the company called repeated violations of its social media policies.
“Rev. Sharpton and NAN will call for a meeting with the Chairman of the Board and demand an immediate reinstatement of Jemele Hill along with other demands pertaining to corporate diversity,” said Sharpton and NAN in a joint statement.
Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Says Any Player who is ‘Disrespectful to the Flag’ Won’t be Allowed to Play … Hmm, Raising Your Fist Isn’t Disrespectful?
WE WILL BELIEVE IT WHEN WE SEE IT …
Dallas Cowboy’s owner Jerry Jones stated Sunday that any of his players who disrespect the flag during the national anthem won’t play in games. Jones appears to be the first NFL owner to publicly make a stand about disciplining players who kneel during the anthem. Well I guess if you are America’s team, one might want to stand during the anthem. However, I guess it’s all how you define disrespect the flag, now isn’t it? Jones as asked about Cowboys defensive linemen Damontre’ Moore and David Irving who both raised their fists at the conclusion of the anthem. He conveniently claimed to know nothing of that. Really Jerry? Moore and Irving acknowledged after the game raising their fists at the conclusion of Sunday’s anthem. Moore stated he wasn’t disrespecting the flag, he has done it all year and he has a lot of family members with military background. Wow, another brain surgeon playing football. Gee Mr. Moore, what do you think you were doing it, honoring the flag by your actions? And the fact that you have been doing it all year is exactly why your owner has stated, NO MORE. So Jerry Jones, the ball is in your court, you going to suspend players like this? What would you define as a fist raised in the air to mean following the singing of the National anthem? Sorry, hardly patriotic.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Sunday that any of his players who disrespect the flag during the national anthem won’t play in games.
Jones is the first NFL owner to publicly make a stand about disciplining players who kneel during the anthem. Jones didn’t specify what kind of other demonstration he would consider disrespectful.
Cowboys defensive linemen Damontre’ Moore and David Irving stood alongside teammates during the national anthem before Sunday’s home game against Green Bay at AT&T Stadium. At the conclusion of the anthem, the two players raised their fists.
“I don’t know about that. But if there is anything that is disrespectful to the flag then we will not play,” Jones said after the Cowboys’ 35-31 loss. “You understand? If we are disrespecting the flag then we won’t play. Period.
“We’re going to respect the flag, and I’m going to create the perception of it. And we have.”
Jones addressed the media for 22 minutes after the game. He spent the final seven minutes talking about how he’s adamant that Cowboys and other NFL players should stand for the national anthem in the wake of dozens of players around the league kneeling the first five weeks of the season.
HEY LEFT AND AMERICA HATERS, THE VP HAS FREEDOM OF SPEECH RIGHTS ALSO …
Yesterday, Vice President Mike Pence walked out of the Indianapolis Colts – San Francisco 49er’s NFL game when members of the 49ers team knelt during the playing of the American national anthem. Pence tweeted, “I left today’s Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem.” This is a position that an overwhelming majority of Americans and even more NFL fans agree with as well. Of course the liberal MSM, all they can say is that this was pre-planned. Really, it was planned, that is all you got? Mike Pence was the former governor of Indiana and was scheduled to be there long in advance for Peyton Manning and his ceremony. If 49er players acted a fool and knelt for the anthem, of course Pence had every right to leave. Guess what, if the 49er players decided to respect the Flag and the Country, Pence would have stayed.
Vice President Mike Pence walked out on his home-state Indianapolis Colts Sunday when members of the opposing team kneeled for the national anthem, but a report that Colin Kaepernick, the player who started it all, will stand if given another shot in the NFL was quickly dialed back.
“I left today’s Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,” Pence tweeted.
Several San Francisco 49ers players kneeled for the anthem on Sunday in Indianapolis.
Pence later posted a statement which read “I left today’s Colts game because President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem. At a time when so many Americans are inspiring our nation with their courage, resolve, and resilience, now, more than ever, we should rally around our Flag and everything that unites us.”
Hw brave of the MSM, they interview 49er fans as to their reaction. How comical.
Later, President Donald Trump later tweeted, “I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country. I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen.”
A note to the moron 49er player Ed Reid who stated, this is what systemic oppression looks like. Grow up you fool. No you frigging idiot, this is what freedom of speech looks like. To the ignorant Reid, it looks like a PR stunt? Really? One might say your kneeling is a PR stunt, hmm? What the ignoramus Reid and the NFL is about to learn in a real way is that Americans have free speech rights too and that is they can walk out on the players and the NFL. For every action, there is a reaction.
Ed Reid and your ilk, you foolish and misguided, entitled players are not the only ones that are afforded Freedom of Speech. We have the right to boycott you and the NFL and we will.
