After the recent clash in Charlottesville, Virgina between violent groups such as ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter and white supremacists, the shrill scream of racism in the NFL has grown louder. Last week, Seattle Seahawk defensive end Michael Bennett sat during the anthem as well as, Oakland Raiders Marshawn Lynch to protest the racial inequality in America. And, now to up the manufactured hysteria, the NAACP has demanded that Colin Kaepernick is given a job or else.
For the first time in history, a total of 11 athletes from one team dropped to their knee when the National Anthem started, refusing to stand and honor our flag.
They decided to follow Colin Kaepernick path! But was that a good decision? If you ask some of NFL executives their answer would be one huge no!
An unnamed NFL executive absolutely shredded Colin Kaepernick in an interview published Thursday morning, according to The Daily Caller.
The unnamed executive was one of four who spoke with Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, and he didn’t hold back when explaining why Kaepernick isn’t on an NFL roster.
He said the following:
I don’t like the guy as a player. I don’t think he can play. I didn’t think he could play at Reno, I don’t think he can play now. … You don’t think if he was a good player, 20 teams would be lining up? … He’s inaccurate, inconsistent reading defenses. He needs everything to be perfect around him, and he needs to run a certain offense. When he was rolling, they had an unbelievable defense and a great running game with an amazing offensive line. Everything was perfect. And you consider that, why isn’t there a debate about RG3? He just wasn’t a consideration.
It should be noted the other three executives also all pretty much echoed his sentiments but in much softer tones.
That NFL executive speaks for a lot of NFL fans with his opinion about the embattled quarterback, and it looks less and less likely with every passing day we’ll ever see Kaepernick on a roster. Seems like disrespecting America certainly has some consequences.
The NFL is a game pure and simple, not a political activist platform. If he is that interested in the problem how come we never hear about his work in the off season. There are a lot of blacks in the NFL making millions of dollars every year but they work and play hard for it. So let’s be nice and let Colin go home in peace.
It is a time we all got together and worked to make this country what it should be.
