    Its really funny that if jews speak on or stand up against the holocaust its no prob if native indians speak on how white peoole took their land and put them on a reservation and killed them no issue jews still receive money from Germany for holocaust indians have land and casinos black people stand up for cops killing minorities and we are blackballed we have received no reparation for crimes committed against our ancestors while others have but if we stand up for right our own kind speak against us because they have sold their souls for the mighty dollar its just sad we see wrong and won't stand up for it if kaepernick got blackballed and he's rich same can happen to u or i open our eyes people the rich are getting richer and more powerful cause we dont realize the power we have dont stay sleep wake up

    He tells us he's been ready for three yrs. The truth is he hasn't wanted to play football in three, maybe even fours. This Kaepernick showing us just who he is. This dog and pony was all about his new shoe line with Nike and trying to keep himself front and center with the public. The league, the commissioner, and everybody else are mere props that he's using to further his "brand". I'd respect him if he came out and said he just flat out didn't want to play football anymore. If anything, the NFL and it's teams have proven Time and again that if you can still play and are willing to play, one of the 30+ teams will sign you.

    Kaepernick hates America. He had to leave the country on the 4th of July he hated us so bad. He would be TOXIC for any team. The fans hate him. Be honest...THAT is his problem. Along with the fact that he is a lousy player. He was a second string QB on the worst team in football when he stopped playing. Never forget that. Put the race card away.

    Boo! Stephen "A" you never really supported Colin Kap. despite what you done in the past; this video proves it. Now Colin Kap knows how you really feel and so does the public! This is a let down!

    Stephen, you're right that brothers must do the right thing. However, doing the right thing is how Kap got shafted by the NFL to begin with! Why can't you see that he is trying to ensure that he doesn't get screwed by them again? They have all the power. They're the ones that blackballed him, remember? What is wrong with demanding transparency? Haven't you ever heard the saying, "Fool me once shame on you...fool me twice shame on me." ??? You're asking a brother to let his guard down to potentially get fooled a second time !!!! There is nothing wrong with him asking NFL/Media to show a good faith effort in agreeing to unbiased and full transparent coverage of his workout! Stop being stubborn and see the truth for what it is! Jesus Christ you are hard-headed !!!

    This is an overreaction before you got the facts Sir. I am just using your format of keeping it real. You should watch OR call in for a interview a Senior NFL REPORTER named Charles Robinson who was interviewed on Jim Rome your competitor on IRgos. His information might change your thinking about the Tricknology used by the NFL.
