Kaepernick files grievance against NFL, alleging collusion

Tea Party Tribune - Sun, 10/15/2017 - 10:05pm

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick filed a grievance against the NFL on Sunday, alleging that he remains unsigned as a result of collusion by owners following his protests during the national anthem.

Kaepernick started a national conversation about political activism by athletes last season when he decided to sit, and then kneel, during the anthem to bring attention to mistreatment of African-Americans by police. Other players have continued the protests this season, prompting an angry response from President Donald Trump, who said players should be fired for not standing during the anthem.

Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the 49ers at the end of last season and remains a free agent despite a rash of injuries and poor play at the quarterback position.

Mark Geragos, one of Kaepernick’s attorneys, said in a statement posted on Twitter on Sunday that he filed the grievance “only after pursuing every possible avenue with all NFL teams and their executives.”

“If the NFL (as well as all professional sports leagues) is to remain a meritocracy, then principled and peaceful political protest — which the owners themselves made great theater imitating weeks ago — should not be punished,” Geragos said in the statement, “and athletes should not be denied employment based on partisan political provocation by the executive branch of our government. Such a precedent threatens all patriotic Americans and harkens back to our darkest days as a nation.”

San Francisco safety Eric Reid, Kaepernick’s former teammate, has been kneeling during the anthem before games, including Sunday’s 26-24 loss at the Washington Redskins.

“I’ll have to follow up with him,” Reid said after the game. “It sure does seem like he’s being blackballed. I think all the stats prove that he’s an NFL-worthy quarterback. So that’s his choice and I support his decision. We’ll just have to see what comes of it.”

The NFL players’ union said it would support the grievance, which was filed through the arbitration system that’s part of the league’s collective bargaining agreement.

“Colin Kaepernick’s goal has always been, and remains, to simply be treated fairly by the league he performed at the highest level for and to return to the football playing field,” Geragos said.

Democrats attack Trump for obeying a federal judge’s court order

So much for the Democrats' professed respect for the rule of law.

Dude Looks Like a Lady

I was gonna take today off, and get drunk, but this is too good to pass up. Since I can’t buy any booze until noon anyway, being in the very buckle of the Bible Belt, I’m going to launch off into the biggest conspiracy theory of them all, Michelle’s gender! Dude Looks Like a Lady! Though Alex Jones denies it, he was rolling in this one like a dog in a dead armadillo.

Now, let’s consider the ramifications of this prospect. The former First Lady may be a man. Talk about LibTards looking the other way! This is sticking their heads up their butts , and walking on their elbows. There’s no doubt the current First Lady is a lady. An article surfaced today in Conservative Ones News, and I quote: Dr. Rafael Espinanzo, who was entrusted with former First Lady Michelle Obama’s care during the 2008 presidential election, is speaking out about something he feels the public needs a definitive answer on. With all the talk about Mrs. Obama once being a man, Espinanzo felt he couldn’t keep his mouth shut any longer:

He goes on describing the First Lady taking a First PeePee! This may be Fake News, but when you stack all the suspicions over the years, from extended fingers to checking her, or rather “his” package, which was very apparent by the way if he/she is a black man, just saying, it makes the good doctor’s claim at least posable. I rejected this at first, filing it away with Jones’ Lizard People, but this is too good! You don’t have to be a comedian of over forty years to work this one folks.

What does this all mean? Nothing! We all know the left has lost its collective mind. This is why Putin laughs at us. Now I know why the NFL won’t stand for the National Anthem. They want it replaced with “Dude Looks Like a Lady!” What amazes me is why Trump isn’t on this like white on rice. Wait, white on rice, Michelle is black … that racist enough for ya? I’m still laughing. To quote the old TV show, ALF, “I KILL me!”
