He's claiming collusion by NFL team owners and that it's in part spurred by Donald Trump. I guess it hasn't occurred to him that owners see him as a disruptive force to team unity, not to mention he was benched for poor performance.

To me, this is a simple case of his chickens coming home to roost.

Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    He's a problem child and he's making that fact known to the whole world including potential employers. When this is over he won't be able to get a job on a garbage truck.

    I don't know how many million dollars he has left from when he was working, but his lawyers are going to work overtime to get it from him with these frivolous lawsuits that they will spend months not winning.

    Had he done this when he was performing well, he'd still be playing, rather than sucking hind teat on the bench or looking for work. The NFL is EXTREMELY forgiving when you produce for your team. Kaepernick was a mobile quarterback who made plays with his feet... now, he's just a guy who can't run very well and still doesn't throw great. With teams limited to a 53 man roster, few will be able to justify the cost or the roster spot by keeping a quarterback who can't perform as he did in the past. Those who can will have a hard time justifying the baggage that he comes with. To those 'owed' something, I suppose this seems unfair...

    That stupid hair that looks like an atomic explosion should keep him from playing on the NFL alone.
