Immediately after the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minnesota’s police officers, white America experienced a type of reckoning. Record Label Apologized Black artists to exploit cities historically Painted murals Black Lives Matter movement, in recognition of racists has left, Institutions Distance himself From their oppressive origins – basically, the whites made a half-hearted attempt to pretend like racism and the police brutality was only an estimate of our collective imagination.
There was even discussion that Colin Kaepernick, who has declined in purification of football as he dared to abolish the value and virtue of black life, After all Get out of exile and resume your career in the NFL.
As we did before Reported On The root, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell encouraged NFL teams to sign the cup, and Los Angeles Chargers coach Anthony Lynn openly expressed interest in giving them workouts — a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport confirmed That suddenly interested teams “very” real in the cup. “
“This is a big step,” Rapoport told NFL Network in June. “Just canceling the league, talking to many different head coaches, there is far more interest in Colin Kaepernick than I really believe at any point in the last three or four years.”
Except it was all nonsense.
According to Mike Florio NBC Sports, That the “fake” interest was really just white crime and the cup was considered for “months”.
From NBC Sports:
“At one point along the way, NFL media reported that the teams had approached”Friends and partners“Kaepernick, and when they contact their agent when they” will reach a point where they are confident enough that they feel they can work on a contract. “So either they were never convinced that they could work on a contract, or it was all nonsense.”
I was gonna go with it “was just bullshit.”
What clearly makes the lack of interest more confusing is the fact that a single COVID-19 outbreak could derail the NFL’s entire season. So you think teams will take every precaution, especially at quarterback position, to make sure they have the best chance to win every time.
To this end, the Philadelphia Eagles Just signed As 41-year-old Josh McGown The fourth Coronovirus quarterback to cover his asses to put any other three in a headlock. So while Carson Wentz, Nate Sudfeld, and 2020 second-round pick Jalan Hurts will lead the active roster, the Eagles will pay off a perennial failure (his career record as a starter) 23-53) $ 12,000 a week to stay their asses home and to “practices” on Zoom.
Are you Actually I am trying to explain that the reason for the injury in a league for Quarter Quick is that Kaepernick is not even worth it A look As a pre-emptive emergency quarantine option?
We’ve heard people like Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll insist in That cup is without a job because he is too good to be a backup, yet the cup is not even given an offer Happen a backup-sometimes. So why are they assuming that he doesn’t want a job even without asking him?
Imagine you sitting around as a child, starving for cake and ice cream at a birthday party, and one of the parents tells you that you don’t want cake and ice cream, even Not even without asking you.
The NFL is full of dirt.
And yearning Social justice message in the end zone or Slapping victims of police brutality on helmets Nothing has to be done to change this season. Because at the end of the day, it is abundantly clear that the NFL can give less than a shit about black life when the white dollar has always taken precedence.
