This was never about race (the NFL is what , 80 per cent black?). He wasn't that good a quarterback, remember he didn't lose a starting job. He was a liability and a distraction and chased a lot of fans from the game. He also DID get an offer (Denver) and turned it down.

Well well ladies and gentlemen, it may appear here like this is a win for Kapernick and all of those ratbags that support him... BUT....

This is a little thing called 'precedence'

and the 'precedence' is that - a person who was blackballed from his employment due to his political stance has a legal case against those that blackballed him.

so lets say for a minute someone who works for, oh i dont know, say..... google maybe? was to open their mouth about the toxic culture within the company, gets fired for wrongthink, and then cant be hired again because of his toxic mysoginistic wrongthink?

guess who has precedence available to him for a potential lawsuit against google and other potential employers?

this is very. very. good news.

Oh please. If he were a good quarterback he could get away with anything and still play. FFS, he could be convicted of running a dog-fighting ring and still get a job when he got out of prison. Nobody wants to hire him because he sucks.

It has nothing to do with race and everything to do with him being a defiant, contentious little shit. Bad PR is bad PR, regardless of skin color.

Because everyone knows that the NFL never hire black people.
