Never was the case, that's why they started to change the narrative .  Now this season I expect it to take a dip if he's not on a team

No.  It's just grandstanding.  There are plenty of players who continue to protest during the anthem and they're not getting cut.  Defenses figured out Kaepernick's game long ago and they're not likely to pay him the sort of money that he'd be seeking.  If he truly wishes to play again, he'll likely have to compromise in this regard.  As for his protests, he sold out when he promised he wouldn't do it anymore if someone signed him.  Now he's digging being the toast of the town... until the money runs out, that is.

The boycott didn't have any gas in that I see way too many posting on social media about NFL game action. There is no unity with some people.

Colin Karpernik ain't broke - he has $25 million - homeboy ain't hurting for funds.   He's not in the media passing out quotes, he's not complaining about not having a job, he's not hollering about being unfair - he's chilling and doing what he does.   

This notion that he is grandstanding just because he decided to point out black people being killed at alarming rates is complete and utter bullsh@t. This whole notion of just play football and shut up is ri-damn-diculous.   Glad somebody decided to take a stand.  Silly folks like Ray Lewis and his ilk won't be looked upon favorably further on down the line.  Can't stand his big headed intellectually challenged @zz ::)
