Colin Kaepernick Stands For Klans

By Kaepernicks measure of character, believing in “something” is worth “sacrificing everything”.  

If what he says is true, then belief in anything is worth sacrifice of everything, and if sacrifice of everything is “worth it”, then one can be certain that the first sacrifice will be those who disagree, who hold a different view, who believe something different.  Thus, if belief in ANYTHING justifies sacrifice of EVERYTHING, mayhem will be the inevitable result, because people believe in some strange things, and “somebody got to pay!”.

What does Colin believe?  That the NFL treated him unfairly.  He wanted to start, and couldn’t because he can’t read defenses and is hurt all the time.  He wanted a trade, and couldn’t because SF owned the rights to him.  So he concludes that he is mere property, a plantation slave, so to speak.  His poor quality of play notwithstanding, Kaepernick apparently decided that the NFL is “going to get theirs”.

Only belief in that which is right, and true, and honorable is worthy of sacrifice, and that sacrifice being personal, the sacrifice of self; loss; pain; sorrow and suffering.

Colin Kaepernick is raking in millions of dollars for his “stand” for kneeling.  Its an “Act Up” campaign for money.

And it is about money.  Every player, owner and coach who is foolish enough to join the Kaepernick Conga is only making Kaepernick richer, and he isn’t even on the field!

Colin Kaepernick Was Benched As a “Formerly Good” Quarterback

The former Super Bowl starting quarterback’s decision to go public comes while he is fighting for his football life with the 49ers, who drafted him in the second round in 2011. He lost his starting job last season after being one of the most promising players in the NFL during his run under former coach Jim Harbaugh.

Over the past few months, his relationship with management has turned sour. He requested a trade last spring, which never came. He also has spent most of the offseason rehabilitating from operations to his left (non-throwing) shoulder, his hand and knee. His recovery left him unable to fully compete with Blaine Gabbert for months and has him seemingly in a bind to regain his starting job.

Only after Colin Kaepernick realized that his career as a starter in the NFL was ending
did he conclude that someone, somewhere was being repressed, apparently by the NFL.

He wanted a trade, and he didn’t get one.  That apparently made him angry, and perhaps was the genesis of his “repression” meme.

Was He Running From Genetic Weakness?

Football is a game played by injured people.  Everyone on the field hurts somewhere on their body, and often, in multiple places.  Football demands that players play hurt, and there is no way around that.

They get hurt from violent impact, and it looks like Colin Kaepernick seems more susceptible to injury than most.  He started his NFL career with a titanium rod embedded in his lower, right leg bone (do not know which one).

 

Selected in the second round of the 2011 draft out of Nevada, Kaepernick divulged that he had a titanium, stabilizing rod inserted into his left leg prior that rookie year, because of a stress fracture. The rod remains in his leg.

“It’s just something I’ve learned to deal with,” said Kaepernick, who’s rushed for 1,834 yards in his career, including 181 yards in his victorious playoff debut against the Green Bay Packers three years ago, still running that titanium rod in his leg.  hmmm….

Kaepernick recovered from the leg surgery during the labor lockout prior to his rookie season, and he played a cameo role in three games that year behind starter Alex Smith.

Asked if the rod bothered him much, Kaepernick replied: “Depends. Here and there.” So it hurts. – Indomitus

Kaepernick never missed a 49ers practice in his career until he surprisingly went on injured reserve Nov. 21, because of a torn labrum in his left shoulder. Dr. Peter Millett performed that shoulder surgery Nov. 24 in Vail, and Kaepernick will have it re-examined this week by Millet.

An MRI exam last week revealed Kaepernick tore a ligament in his throwing hand’s thumb, which he claimed he suffered in an Oct. 22 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Baalke said he couldn’t answer why it took so long to diagnose that thumb injury, saying it would be better to ask the medical staff .

“I’m having my thumb checked because that’s what doctors here have ordered, to make sure I get a second opinion on that, as well,” Kaepernick said.

In his final start of a three-year reign as the 49ers starter, Kaepernick said he suffered a “bone bruise and cracked cartilage” during the Nov. 1 loss at St. Louis.

Kaepernick’s left knee issue is preventing him from running and jumping. Surgery is not currently prescribed for his injury but a follow-up MRI is scheduled in late February.

The following day after that Rams game, then-49ers coach Jim Tomsula and offensive coordinator Geep Chryst told Kaepernick he was being benched in favor of Blaine Gabbert, who finished 3-5 as the starter after winning Sunday’s season finale 16-16 in overtime against the Rams. – career winding down already

49r football fans also comment regarding Kaepernicks odd injury “coincidence” with his contract expiration, noting that his “injuries piles up after being benched”, and that he cannot be cut if he is on injured reserve.

January 4th, 2016 – the talk is about Colin Keapernick being benched, and hurt all the time.  Kaepernick apparently wants to be traded, but SF 49’rs will not trade him.  Kaepernick is angry.  He wants his freedom, he wants to be a starter somewhere, but he is owned by SF.

So Kaepernick allegedly tore the thumb tendon in an October 22, 2015 game? And discovered only recently? No aggravating pain and inflammation from that torn tendon for the last two plus months?? I don’t buy it. This is all about, IMO, making certain his “team friendly contract” does not blow up in his face and that he collects a substantial chunk of said contract..

From that angle, you’re probably right. Kaepernick knows the Niners are done with him and he is looking for contract loopholes to bilk them for as much money as he can. I’m sure every player in the NFL has a laundry list of “minor” surgeries that could be done.

He should stay on injured reserve until after April 1st so that he can get paid. The biggest thing people are missing is that he can’t be cut while he’s injured.

Physical attributes will only lead you so far in the NFL. Have to be able to read defenses and make adjustments when necessary.

Move forward, beyond April 1st.  San Francisco keeps Kaepernick as a backup, but Kaepernick is hurt again, and misses the first three games (a protest?).  He takes a knee those three games, but he is in street clothes so no one notices or cares.

Kaepernick did not stand for the national anthem in the 49ers first three preseason games, although it wasn’t noticed until he was in uniform for the third game against San Diego. He and teammate Eric Reid kneeled for the anthem in San Diego, and Lane, while playing the Raiders in Oakland, was the only player known to have joined in the protest.

Look, the man is angry.  He wants to punish someone for his failure in the NFL.  No start and no trade…somebody has to pay, and its going to be the NFL.

August 2016…

Apparently, Kaepernick just wants the money.  He was offered a job by Denver, but declined it because Denver did not offer him (Kaep) the same starting money he was paid by SF.

Filed Under:Colin Kaepernick,

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — John Elway might find himself in the market for a veteran backup quarterback soon, yet there’s one man who won’t be getting a call: Colin Kaepernick.

“Colin had his chance to be here,” Elway said Thursday when asked if the former San Francisco 49ers QB would be an option if he decides Case Keenum’s backup isn’t already on Denver’s roster.

“We offered him a contract. He didn’t take it,” Elway said. “And as I said at my deposition (in Kaepernick’s collusion lawsuit against the NFL) — and I don’t know if I’m legally able to say this — but he’s had his chance to be here. He passed.”

Kaepernick declined to take a pay cut from his $11.9 million salary to facilitate a trade to the Broncos in 2016 following Peyton Manning’s retirement.

When did Kaepernick ever protest on behalf of anyone in his life?  Only when he lost his starting slot.  He protests for himself, not anyone else.  And now that he has the blacks in the NFL sold and trained on the idea of kneeling, Kaepernick takes NIKE’s check to the  B A N K.

That is his big FU to the mean old NFL for no start and no trade and no ring.
