    wth? We killed over 1 million Iraqis in the 2nd gulf war. I bet you dont see that as a genocide tho. And thats just your personal opinion on the kneeling. The problem is you clearly dont think anyone else who served is entitled to one, and most dont feel that way. Another thing: dont you dare compare yourself to my grandfather. He was an actual hero. A combat medic with 2 purple hearts. And not one time did he ever use his service to make himself out to be better than everyone else. They dont make them like that anymore.

    He was an excellent player. And the ironic part of all that was it was during the first gulf war, but americans didnt want to hear anything he had to say, and the problems in the middle east continued to escalate. Maybe if they get off their high horse about a flag they wouldve been more educated on whats going on there and averted millions of future deaths in the region due to our conflict. And this is coming from someone whose grandfather served in WWII and receieved 2 purple hearts. It isnt about respect for people who served its about shutting up people who dont go along with the nonsense.

    And those 4 people likely spent no money on the NFL and are the casualest of fans. You cant tell me that 4 die hard fans that went to games and bought merch washed their hands of the NFL over a few players kneeling. Thats preposterous. Revenue is up, both locally for the teams and for the league itself. He hasnt hurt the league at all.

    You have zero evidence of that. 1. The argument that Kaep hurt ratings is the most made example of this. But, TV ratings are down across the board because less and less people are paying for TV packages that show the games. And the decrease in ratings is in line with this trend. 2. The NFLs revenue INCREASED during this whole saga. You cant win the argument under that circumstance. 3. The TV money was already paid and no argument can be made that he hurt the TV money until the next agreement, which will certainly be for more money than the current one. And again, you cant win that argument under those circumstances. And lets be real here, this is phony outrage at its best. I know nobody who actually stopped watching the NFL because of this, and you dont either. Flipping back and forth between golf and football instead of just watching football is not hurting their bottom line. And thats what most of these people were doing. Very few felt enough conviction to give up something they enjoyed enough to spend money on. Losing fans doesnt necessarily mean a loss in revenue. Nike is a great example that Kaep is most definitely not bad for business. The fact is, there is no way the NFL settles this if there is any chance they can win. Because if they had won, it strengthens their position in future instances like this. But settling opens the door for even more lawsuits. Its very possible that CK has evidence the league pressured teams to avoid him. And thats all it takes for a discrimination claim.

    They would never do that because it sets a precedent for the future. This opens doors to future lawsuits and only strengthens the union. For comparison, my employer fights the UAW on everything for that reason. And idk what he got, but it was a substantial amount of money, I can assure you of that, because it is gonna be based on his potential earnings. Blake Bortles (who is a good comparison for Kaep) made a % ton of money last year. That number isnt surprising to me at all.

    That is whats called an opinion. He obviously has some proof of collusion, which is a violation of his rights, not only as a human being, but as a union employee who is protected under a contract. If he had no proof, as you claim, the NFL doesnt give away all this money. Its that simple. If you were honest, you would just admit that it is all about his political views. I dont think he is a great QB either, but he has started a championship game which makes him better than the majority of QBs with a roster spot right now.

    Im just amazed at the amount of people who honestly have no clue what they are talking about and still speak on this. If anything they said were true, Kap gets nothing and that is the end of it. But he doesnt have to. There are no rules against what he did. Without fans whining about it, the NFL doesnt do a thing to him. The backlash forced it. And they just got punished for circumventing the process of collective bargaining. You can paint this as Colin breaking some rule, but he absolutely didnt, the NFL did. And the NFL knows this. That why they settled.

    No youre wrong, because he is a union employee, and as I know because I am also a union employee, those right to work rules dont apply to him. And he is apart of a very powerful union. The NBA anthem policy was bargained in negotiations. The NFLs was not.

    This is such a false equivilency. He is forced to stand for the national anthem at work. There are not many jobs that do that. You cant force that on someone and not give them a choice to participate. And that is why he got the money. The NFL brought politics into the work place, not Colin Kaepernick.

    How good was Tarik Glenn

    Tarik was a HOF worthy player. However, he will never make it because he lacks the honors a lineman needs to get in there. And the only reason he lacks those achievements is because of guys like Jon Ogden, Orlando Pace, Tony Boselli, Willie Roaf, Walter Jones, etc

    Yes, however those people dont make excuses and try to justify their actions.

    I never said he wasnt a good football player. You should go root for the Bengals. They love guys like this. And its worked out so well for them, right?

    Narrative lol I wonder where you got that word from? Parrot Its just different from your "narrative", which acts like hes some generational talent. Hes not.

    Who cares? His lack of character will ensure he does something stupid once the money in the NFL goes to his head. Potential is only potential. And Ill bet you Christian Wilkins has a much better career. Because of his character

    Did they beat a defenseless woman while she was turtled up on the ground? Dudes a clown. I would much rather have Christian Wilkins. Great person, good player and not injured.
