Perfect.

Yeah I started a thread about it in the politics sections since it seems more political than sports-oriented.

That makes sense. I scoured the sports lounge so I wouldn't duplicate. Didn't think to check politics.

This issue is multifaceted. My personal take is sport-based though. For me, its not about him or anyone for that matter protesting. Its doing it while in a team uniform.

It will be interesting to see where this lawsuit takes him. I'd be lying if I said I wish him the best. Free speech is free but it doesn't mean it doesn't have consequences.

I think we started the 2 threads at the same time - didn't mean to imply I started one much earlier. Agree direction of lawsuit may be interesting.

He starts shit making it hard for his superiors (owners) to keep control of their work force (players) and now he wonders why no team will take him. Fuck him.

Don't understand any of this...isn't the first requirement to make a pro team ability to play and win? Or is it how PC one is.

MLK Jr was a brilliant speaker and person. Yes people did think he was a shit starter, and unfortunately that's why he isn't here today.

If he was here today, I think he would be irate at these anti-white segregation groups, and he damn sure wouldn't be proud of the Che Guevara shirt wearing POS.

Because his job was to play ball and not bring politics into football. Why the fuck does every thing have to be politicized these days? How about just shut the fuck up and throw the damn ball. I care about how many complete passes he can throw. Don't give a shit about how he feels about political issues. Save the drama for your mama and pass the damn ball.

And that's the problem--people don't seem to realize that he is not that good of a QB. I know this. I am here in the bay and watch the Niners. In his first year he surprised everyone and had a great run game....but he is not very accurate and does not have the best football smarts. Once everyone figured him out, he got injured and started running less he was a below average backup. I watched him blow how many plays? It's not like he is Russell Wilson.
