That's awful if it's true. I hope there is a way to re-route some funds of his towards actual charities to make good on the donations of those contributors...

Yeah, how dare he!

Like I said, its been noted how teams dealt with him. Just like notes were taken on him by those that were offended by his actions.


Free speech in America. Everyone loves it until someone does it.


Free speech =/= consequence free speech.
I think it was Don Imus who went on that racist rant on WFAN and lost his job "but but free speech." Of course his speech was hateful, ignorant and awful (coupled with other things). I don't know Imus at all, but I am glad his employer got rid of him after that incident...

Is what Kap doing racist?

Dude got chances because he was Tebow. A bible thumping college hero. He was straight garbage as a NFL player and yet, how many shots did he get?


Of course, Kap was better than Tebow. I'm not comparing their talent. They both have similar baggage at that point. Tebow was not a good QB but if he was a backup on any team, those bible thumping fans of his would've made an uncomfortable situation for the starting QB and team. That's why Tebow never really had a long career.

Should Kap be on a team? Of course, he should. Does he come with baggage? Yes, he does. Is he a starter? Nope and that's why teams don't want him.

Kap could start for Denver.
That's a championship defense with no QB worth a damn.


elway is a hardcore republican he aint signing kap

It's a modern day n*** rule. He's being told to fall in line.


this is where we are as a society right now when it comes to the NFL: we are ok with druggies playing in it, criminals playing in it, women beaters playing in it, no problem. But a player using his 1st amendment right in a peaceful way: people stop watching and the NFL blackballs him

I don't think a player should lose his right to earn an income because of something that happened off the court.

Now while I do know Kap has a right to exercise his rights, and I do applaud him for doing so, there are risks to it when done at your place of work. Fair or unfair, the risks were known and there.

I know he has a summer camp for kids with tourettes. not sure if they are still working with the U of Tenneseee on clinical research. Kind of seems like the NYPost pissing into the fire... but then again he is apart of $6 million ponzi scheme. "making connections" from your charity.. seems like he might have used people who donated to and trusted him in the past to invest in the bogus ticket business. Pretty low.

All money raised through these events are going to two distinct things - granted this article is 2 years old.

“One (goes to) Camp Carton, which is in our second year,” said the co-host of WFAN’s and CBS Sports Network’s popular morning show.” We doubled enrollment. It’s a week-long summer camp, sleepover camp for seven days up in Rhinebeck, N.Y. We’ll have nearly 50 kids that will be in that camp. The money goes towards this clinical study at the University of Tennessee, because at the end of the day, we think we have the key that unlocks the door to making life better for kids with Tourette’s. http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2015/06/17/craig-carton-on-par-to-take-a-drive-at-tourettes-with-tic-toc-stop/

Freedom of speech only protects you from government prosecution. The NFL not signing Kap is not an example of denying free speech nor infringing on his rights.
Greenie: Disagree. I think Tatum is going to be better than KP. I don't know about DSjr.

Sure.

Kap can't get a job because he spoke up.
That is called STFU and play ball. Common sense tells the world that. The NFL has every right to do exactly what they are doing and we have every right to call it fuqed up bull.

Talk is cheap, make a stand and dont support them, if you really think what the NFL did was truly messed up.

Basically this. Protest the NFL if you think they are wrong. Your freedom of speech allows you to do that.

Honestly Kaepernick's biggest issue is that he's not that good at QB. If he were a better player, someone would give him a chance. Look at Ray Rice and Ezekiel Elliot. Rice sucks now and is old, and he hits his wife. Elliot is good and young, and he hits his gf and still has a job. If you're good, you'll keep getting chances until you suck. Then you get no more chances.

its not like street drugs im speaking off, but even PEDs where players cheat to gain an advantage over others and ultimately give us a product that is not natural. Heck even in MLB players are treated with more scorn after they get busted with PEDs, but in the NFL no one cares. the message we give us a nation through NFL speak volumes as to where we are as a society.
