RE: KAEPERNICK SUES FOR COLLUSION

Short interview with Kaepernick's attorney Mark Geragos.

Geragos talks about why he thinks he'll be able to win the case and Kaepernick's goal, along with case-related strategies.

RE: KAEPERNICK SUES FOR COLLUSION

President Trump is not happy that he wasn't able to coerce the NFL into penalizing or firing its employees if they choose not to stand for the anthem.

He tweeted this out at 4 a.m. this morning.

The NFL has decided that it will not force players to stand for the playing of our National Anthem. Total disrespect for our great country!

Bad for the President, but possibly good for the team owners.

I can see the owners using their 'unity' arm locks and kneeling a couple of weeks ago + the NFL's decision to allow silent protest......in attempt to defend against allegations that they colluded to appease Trump.

ETA: Goodell is set to hold a press conference shortly.

RE: KAEPERNICK SUES FOR COLLUSION

Goodell said in his press conference yesterday that there will be no immediate change to the Collective Bargaining Agreement rules. (Unlike the NBA's CBA rules, the current NFL rules do not mandate that players stand during the anthem.)

Goodell noted that he personally thinks, like many fans, that all players should stand. He also said that he and other league officials are working to better understand the issues of inequality which are being protested and they want to make a difference.

Afterwards....Trump, of course, criticized the decision and statement in a tweet that read,
"NFL: Too much talk, not enough action. Stand for the National Anthem"

Kaepernick's attorney, Mark Geragos, responded with a quote from JFK. His statement read,
"As John F. Kennedy aptly noted almost 60 years ago, a president should be a moral leader in the crusade for human rights and '[h]e must exert the great moral and educational force of his office ... to support the right of every American to stand up for his rights, even if on occasion he must sit down for them.'"

I'm not a fan of Geragos in general, but absolutely agree with him and JFK on this one.

Saw in the news today, where the Kaeper is branching out since
he's not being picked up by any teams, he's planning on "writing a book"!

The title could be "How to be a loser in one easy step"

That title wouldn’t likely get the books flying off the shelves (and it doesn’t fit, in my opinion).

I’m thinking “The Art of The Kneel” might be a better bet.

I've seen that in the news pages a couple of times today Cars.

There aren't any details other than it's reportedly a deal with Random House which equates to about $1 million.

That's not a lot compared to NFL earnings, but it could be a good way for him to promote his cause.

So far this year, Kaepernick has been busy with his Know Your Rights campaign, which he started to raise awareness on self-empowerment and interacting with law enforcement. It seems like a good program.

He's also donated $1 million to a variety of social justice causes.

I didn't even know he was black until he grew out his 'fro. Jesus. 78

I don't mean for this to sound racist and I might not say it around anyone but y'all - his parents are white, he grew up white in a white town.

It's true though.

I read an interview with him some time back where he talked about what it was like being a bi-racial kid raised by white adoptive parents.

Anyway, I wouldn't feel any different if it was instead Tom Brady, Richard Sherman, or Eduardo Castañeda who'd felt compelled to lead a silent protest against racial inequality, social injustice, and police brutality.
