Always amazes me that those who spend their lives wrapping themselves in the flag 365/24/7 are always the folks frothing at the mouth when someone uses their freedom of speech. Yeah, god forbid you exercise one of the basic American rights that people have lost their lives trying to protect. String him up.

Without being political, I didn't have an issue with what he did, especially after reading about how he backed it up with off field charity. I'm also not up in arms that he's essentially blackballed from the league. He's not Ali in the least, but I like that he acted on a peaceful cause he's passionate about. Nothing wrong with that in my book.

He's not in jail. He's just out of a job at the moment. Whether that be for his actions or his awful football abilities at the moment, it doesn't matter. Just because this country protects the Freedom of Speech (God bless this great nation), doesn't mean Free Speech doesn't have consequences. If he were to be locked up in prison for his actions, that would be wrong and a violation of the Constitution. But the reaction to his actions is simply others using their Freedom of Speech.

What do you think about the other quarterbacks who got signed this offseason? I showed that Kaepernick was better than 7 starting quarterbacks last season. Two of those starters, the worst starters in the league, were both signed to free agent contracts.

Kaep is far better than any QB my Rams have had since Warner/Green. Probably better than the starters on 8-10 teams and definitely better than the #2s on 25+ teams.

Due to contract issues and commitments to work young QBs (e.g., Goff) into better ones, it makes sense to me that many of these teams would stick with who they have.

But ultimately, any team that employs rapists, wife/child abusers, animal torturers, etc., deserves all available ridicule when avoiding Kaep out of concern for his activism.

Assuming that the team owners are the dictators of this non-signing, it is IMO the very height of hypocrisy that they continue to sign players with documented domestic abuse episodes just because, supposedly, they may help the team win i.e. Joe Mixon, Greg Hardy - though Ray Rice has certainly been dealt with appropriately IMO.
