Colin Kaepernick’s lawyers are arguing that there was ‘collusion.’ No, that’s not a joke.
The former NFL player’s lawyers have been hinting at this for a while, and it looks like they’re going to drag the President of the United States into his lawsuit against the NFL.
Lawyers for Kaepernick allege that NFL owners feared a negative tweet by President Trump and therefore didn’t sign him.
The owners were ‘colluding’ with each other to keep Kaepernick out of the league because of his anthem protest.
It’s not just Trump that they’re seeking to subpoena, they’re going for everyone associated with Trump.
Kaepernick’s legal team is expected to seek federal subpoenas in the coming weeks to compel testimony from Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and other officials familiar with the president’s agenda on protesting NFL players, sources with knowledge of the quarterback’s collusion case against the NFL told Yahoo Sports.
The aim will be a dive into the administration’s political involvement with the NFL during Kaepernick’s free agency and the league’s handling of player protests, sources said. This after recent disclosures that multiple owners had direct talks with Trump about players kneeling during the national anthem. The content of those conversations between Trump and owners – as well as any forms of pressure directed at the league by the administration – are expected to shape the requests to force the testimony of Trump, Pence and other affiliated officials, sources said.

Kaepernick reportedly will subpoena Trump https://t.co/KGBsXN94kv

It’ll be work for the lawyers to navigate the collective bargaining grievance rules to inject the President of the United States into the workplace dispute, and they’ll have to fight Trump’s lawyers who are already fighting subpoenas from Special Counsel, Robert Mueller.
And then, there’s the theory that Kaepernick just isn’t that great as a QB.
Kaepernick is still unemployed and is unlikely to be named a starter wherever he lands. As for my own personal opinion on Kaepernick, I think he was once an average NFL starter, but has been playing at a backup-caliber level the past two seasons.
Among all 33 quarterbacks to play at least 500 snaps, Kaepernick was our worst-graded quarterback in 2015. In 2016, he ranked seventh-worst of 30 qualifying. Prior to that, he hovered around the NFL average.

Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.

A shirt that aptly describes the NFL — No Fans Left.
NFL’s TV ratings are plummeting as more players refuse to stand for the national anthem. It’s hard to believe that a nation that has given these players the opportunity to achieve so much is so easily disrespected. Even worse, consider the men and women who have laid down their lives so that these athletes could live in a relatively safe country and enjoy their fame and fortune.
Hard-working, patriotic Americans don’t want to watch a bunch of whiners play football. They want to watch winners.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
