  • Colin Kaepernick allegedly wanted $20 million to play in the XFL. Most players make under $500K

    One player noticeably absent during the XFL's kick-off weekend Saturday and Sunday was controversial former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Given Kaepernick's fallout with the NFL, one might expect that he would jump at opportunities to showcase his talents on a different stage in order to lure offers. With that not being the case for Kapernick, many have speculated as to why. Is Kaepernick being blackballed by the XFL? Not quite. Actually, according to recent comments from XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck, the reverse may be closer to the truth. What is the XFL saying? Speaking with NPR on Saturday, Luck shed...

    Colin Kaepernick’s Glaring Absence at the Super Bowl The last 49ers quarterback to take the team on a run to the big game has been largely absent in the run-up to Super Bowl LIV; ‘They’re trying to erase him’    By  Andrew Beaton Updated Feb. 1, 2020 1:50 pm ET   MIAMI—During the 49ers’ run to this Super Bowl, there has been one glaring absence: Colin Kaepernick. Seven years ago, Kaepernick took the 49ers to the Super Bowl. It was the last time San Francisco made it here. But Kaepernick has been missing from the week-long hoopla ahead of...

    Retired NBA star Kobe Bryant during an interview with outspoken ESPN anchor Jemele Hill weighed in on the Colin Kaepernick protest debate by saying that if he were still playing today he would have joined in on it despite the potential backlash. Bryant said that Kaepernick’s message was a “very simple one” and that people are as entitled to protest peacefully as they are to be upset about those protests. “Yeah, I would have participated in it, for sure. I’m sure I would have gotten some flak for it. That’s fine,” he told Hill. “I think that Colin’s message was...

    TEHRAN—Colin Kaepernick sent his workout video to Iran after learning they may have recently opened up a position but has yet to receive a phone call. Kaepernick condemned American attacks on Iranian terrorists last week, inciting rumors that he may have found a team interested in him in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. But Iranian officials have dispelled the rumors, stating clearly and unequivocally that "we have no interest in signing Kaepernick at this time, but we wish him well in his future endeavors." "It's disappointing to see that Iran is as hateful as America," a downcast Kaepernick said in...

    As creeps like Rep. Ilhan Omar denounce the rubout of Iranian terrorist kingpin Qassem Soleimani as the killing of a "foreign official," the press calls him "a farm boy" or "icon," and stupid Hollywood celebrities send their condolences to "the Iranian people," (who are celebrating, actually) the ugly hard reality remains that Qassem Soleimani, leader of the terrorist Quds force, was a monster, a stone-cold killer of innocents, the driving force behind Iran as a state sponsor of terror. His funeral song should be "That Smell." He stunk of death all around him and liked the stench. According to the Washington Post: “The...

    Former NFL player Colin Kaepernick on Saturday accused the United States of targeting minorities "at home and abroad," just days after the administration ordered a drone strike that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani. "There is nothing new about American terrorist attacks against Black and Brown people for the expansion of American imperialism," he tweeted. In a separate tweet, Kaepernick decried "American imperialism" and its "policing and plundering of the nonwhite world." "America has always sanctioned and besieged Black and Brown bodies both at home and abroad," he wrote. "America militarism is the weapon wielded by American imperialism, to enforce its...

    Colin Kaepernick has some thoughts on the United States taking out a top Iranian officer with a drone strike ... calling classic American imperialism via our military. The ex-NFL quarterback posted some scathing remarks Saturday about the international move that's got everyone here at home worried about a so-called World War III -- and he didn't hold back in criticizing it to the max, likening it to an attack on people of color.

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—There wasn't much happening in the world today, so Trump simply sat at his desk looking for something to do. Then he got an idea. Picking up his desk phone, he dialed a number and waited for the man on the other end to pick up. Meanwhile, Colin Kaepernick was sitting around nervously waiting for his phone to ring at long last. As his ringtone, the USSR anthem, began to play, Kaepernick lunged for the phone and picked up on the first ring. "Hello?" he said, attempting to sound casual. "Hi, uh, yes, is this a Mr. Kaepernick?" Trump...

    The Washington Redskins were one of the teams that attended Colin Kaepernick’s workout in Georgia last month. Their attendance was hard to explain because signing Kaepernick made no sense for the team. But now, the Redskins have made a signing based (at least in part) on what they saw during the Kaepernick workout. The Skins signed to their practice squad one of the wide receivers to whom Kaepernick threw passes. He’s Jordan Veasy, who played his college ball at Berkeley. Veasy was not drafted, but has been a member of the practice squads of four NFL teams. The Redskins will...

    The Colin Kaepernick workout worked. Sort of. The quarterback at the center of three years of controversy hasn’t found employment, but one of his receivers from his recent Georgia workout has. Via Sam Fortier of the Washington Post, wide receiver Jordan Veasy (who caught the viral deep ball during the workout) was signed to the Washington practice squad based on the workout.

    A Marine veteran who served in Iraq and is running for Congress in California called out Colin Kaepernick on Monday for “pulling the racism and victim card.” Jeremy Staat, who also played in 31 NFL games across four seasons, wrote to supporters in a recent fundraising email that Kaepernick is a "national disgrace and I'm tired of seeing him celebrated like he's a hero." On Monday, Staat told “Fox & Friends that “[Kaepernick] knew what he was getting into when he decided to kneel and now he’s going to go ahead and capitalize" on his decision. He accused the former...

    Now that he’s leading in the polls in Iowa and New Hampshire Democratic presidential contender South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is reported to be mulling over possible running mates. Rumored front runner is former National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick. “Kaepernick is a man of unrivaled courage,” Buttigieg said. “His willingness to kneel while thousands of others stood for the National Anthem was beyond brave. It cost him his job and millions of dollars. That’s a far higher price than any other protester has paid. I think voters who believe in justice would relish the opportunity to elect him as...

Thank you to my Indigenous family, I’m with you today and always,” the former 49ers quarterback wrote in a tweet Thursday afternoon: Spent the morning at the Indigenous People’s Sunrise Ceremony on the 50 year anniversary of the Occupation of Alcatraz.

    Mike Francesa: Kaepernick Doesn't Actually Want To Play In NFL "He Wants To Cash In Against The League And Off The Field" On Saturday, free-agent NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick completed a 40-minute workout in front of representatives from eight teams. Originally, 25 teams planned to be in attendance for the workout, that was previously scheduled to be at the Atlanta Falcons training facility. The location of the practice was changed shortly before the start of the workout because of a disagreement over the terms of the workout between Kaepernick's representatives and the NFL. WFAN's Mike Francesa explained his thoughts on...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- If there is anything we learned from the fiasco that was Colin Kaepernick’s workout Saturday is that it was more about appearances than it was ever about football. For the league, the original, hastily organized, workout seemed to be about protecting itself from a potential second collusion lawsuit than giving Kaepernick another chance to play in the NFL. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have put media restrictions on it or presented him with an “unusual” waiver to sign just hours before. For Kaepernick, the workout, which was scrapped and moved at the last minute to a high school 60...

    He Finally Did ItIn the three years since Colin Kaepernick knelt his way off of the San Francisco 49ers and out of the National Football League, the one thing the drama has lacked is ambivalence. People either hated him or viewed him as social hero who was being mistreated and prevented from playing the game he loves. Now everybody just hates him. Throughout his supposedly unwanted hiatus from football, Kaepernick and those representing him have insisted that he is staying in playing shape and merely wanted a chance to showcase his skills for a team.Last week, the NFL offered him that...

    During a recess late in a trial where the plaintiff alleged he had been fired due to his race and/or his age, a federal district court judge said to his law clerk: Sure, this guy was discriminated against. But he wasn’t discriminated against because he’s black and he wasn’t discriminated against because he’s over 40. He was discriminated because he’s an ass***e. It might well be the case that, a few years ago, Colin Kaepernick was discriminated because he led a mini-movement that resulted in some NFL players taking a knee during the National Anthem. I never managed to feel...
