Players rumored to be considering a "strike" of sorts

Remember he was the guy that brought up Peyton Manning's Tennessee incident and bashing Peyton after he won the SB because almost everyone was calling Cam Newton a cry baby and a poor sport. He also is a white guy pretending to be black which has been proven. He basically backs anything up when it comes to Minorities. If that gives you an idea. I read his Tweet and no way are 25% of the players sitting out until Kaepernick gets signed LOL. I don't see anyone doing that, one they wont get paid and 2 it would make whoever sits out really look bad.

The NFL just donated $90 million to the NFLPA's social justice fund.

Nobody's going on strike

How long are we going to keep talking about Colin Kaepernick? It's funny because we talk about how Luck will be out of form when he returns, but can you imagine how out of form Kaepernick will be!? Practice and the weight room will only get you so far.

If players are not sitting out of OTAs which are voluntary, then they're not going to sit out mandatory practice and risk HUGE fines daily.

 

Just not happening.

 

But the players union IS terrible and the players are being represented badly.  They don't have an internal form of communication?    That seems impossible?!?

 

I don't see a problem with the reporter.

Shaun King brings up good points about race inequality fairly frequently, and he's usually not wrong, BUT if someone is profiting from their stance, no matter what side they choose on any issue, I have to take what they say with a grain of salt.

 

He's been known to go a little over-the-top before he has all the pertinent information.

 

But that doesn't mean he doesn't bring up valid points as a journalist.  I don't know.  I'd have to defer to @NewColtsFan on this one.  I don't have the requisite experience to discuss this with confidence...

 

:dunno:

He is an activist more than a journalist 

   He started out as a HS Civics teacher and pastor

It's not a debate to me, a lot of reporters bring up valid points about inequality - King does as well. I was just explaining to csmopar who the guy was and a little about his background because he had no idea who he was and what he stands for.

  You just explained the resume for every pundit out there

 

 

     I don’t always understand or agree with what he says but admire him for his guts

I doubt 25% would sit out, I doubt 1% would sit out.  If they did, that's fine, but it is also fine if their employers decided to fire them.

 

As far as Shaun King goes from what I have seen he is not a reputable person and a poor example of a journalist.

Shaun King is a SJW on twitter (aka - "slacktivist").  Other than painting the internet with his words, opinions, ramblings, etc... I have not seen/heard what he actually DOES to combat social injustices and inequalities.  Have you?

I would even add that, if Kaepernick loves football & wants to play so badly, why wont he go to Canada to prove himself.  As much of a clown as Manziel has been, he is willing to take this path to prove he is worthy of the NFL.

There may be one or two players who sit out the season in protest, but no one is going to care for more than a few days. It'll be "next man up" and on with the show. These guys might not all be qualified for Mensa, but it doesn't take much of an understanding of advanced math to realize that they're walking away from their only real shot at making more money than they'll ever see again. Pffft!

He could always do what Johnnie Manziel did, Try out for Canadian Football. Then he wouldn't have the anthem as why he's not in the NFL, if he really wants to play football. Been plenty of players that did that. If he lights up their league, I'm sure he could come back to the NFL, at some point.

    • I'm actually dropping the jags D in favour of the patriots D. I don't like the jags D versus the new bills that have two weeks to prepare.    Right now I've for Ari for this week, Mia for 12,  KC for 13, NE for 16 and backup on all my weeks except for 15. Which I plan on getting Den or Buf for 14 & 15.
    • Gurley already got that, $45M actually. You need to do some research.
    • Luck is 9-0 vs the Titans let's make it 10
    • We've talked about it a lot this year.     Especially in August and September.    Ballard brings in all these kids and he has to see what he has.    How do the kids do in real games?   This past week,  we had Smith make a rare penalty in the 3rd quarter and suddenly we're facing 1st and 20.   The very next play works to perfection...   the J'Ville defense clears out and Hines is all by himself in the middle of the field.    Luck's pass is perfect but Hines turns his head to run with the ball before he catches it.    Dropped.     If he caught it,  he might have run a long, long way.   The next series,  a well conceived pass play finds Luck hitting Allie-Cox with a great pass.     Allie-Cox looks the ball into his hands,  but it goes through his hands, off his chest protector, bounces off and gets intercepted.     The perfect play works perfectly right up to the moment where it doesn't.   That's what kids do.     They make mistakes under pressure in big games.   This is the bad with the good.     If you're looking for Reich and Ballard to bench these guys --- you're going to wait a long time.   The kids still need to play.     The more experience they get this year,   the better they will be NEXT YEAR.   And that's what this year is about.     Making next year,  and the years after them,  as good as can be.   So, if we see more mistakes from the kids Sunday,   don't be too surprised and don't get freaked out.    It's what happens when you play the kids.   And Ballard and Reich know it.   Should be a great game Sunday!!  
    • Of course you wouldn't mind.    Problem is,  it wouldn't happen.   What has Hooker done to warrent trading a 1st or a 2nd round pick?      Not nearly enough.   Right now,  we'd be lucky to get more than a 4.   Hooker isn't going anywhere...
