Everyone who isn’t racist, MAGA or washed in white privilege already knew this, but it is good now that actual evidence is coming out to show it.
PFT has the details.
If the subtle-on-the-surface shift that happened last July, when Kaepernick’s status went from being about only football to being about non-football considerations, wasn’t enough to prove that the “all about football” narrative amounted to nonsense, the ongoing collusion case is establishing that multiple teams viewed Kaepernick as a starting NFL quarterback in 2017, and that they continue to view him that way. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, internal franchise documents generated as part of the free-agency evaluation process and testimony from witnesses harvested via depositions in the collusion litigation has established that teams viewed Kaepernick as being good enough not simply to be employed by an NFL team, but to be a starting quarterback for an NFL team.
Collusion cases are hard to prove even when common sense tells you collusion is happening. The NFL could have saved themselves a lot of trouble if they would have just signed Kaepernick, but they care more about Trump than doing what is right.
I included the media in this because some has been pushing the narrative that it was all because of football reasons, but that has been proven to be false. It makes you wonder why they are helping the league blackball a player who just wants racism and police brutality to end.
