Is Kaepernick being ‘whiteballed’ by NFL? Execs find ‘being labeled unpatriotic’ worse than killing someone

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick basked in all the attention brought on by his disrespectful refusal to stand during the national anthem, but finds himself currently unemployed as a free agent in the NFL.

And some are claiming that it’s not because of a lack of ability.

Kaepernick’s recent win-loss record notwithstanding, some are suggesting a lack of interest from NFL teams is not because of a drop off in the player’s skills, including outspoken Seattle Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman.

During an appearance on ESPN Radio’s “First Take,” Sherman was asked by host Molly Qerim if he thought Kaepernick was being blackballed from the NFL.

“I’m sure he is,” he replied. “It’s difficult to see because he’s played at such a high level, and you see guys, quarterbacks, who have never played at a high level being signed by teams. So it’s difficult to understand.”

But News One Now’s Roland Martin disagreed.

…sort of.

In a shameful attempt to inject race into the equation — and expose some apparent deep-seated dislike for America — Martin claimed Kaepernick is being “whiteballed.”

“Well, I think in this case here we’ll change our graphic,” he said. “Colin Kaepernick’s not being blackballed, he’s being whiteballed.”

Fox Sports 1’s Shannon Sharpe was a guest and implied that some general managers may think Kaepernick’s play has fallen off too much, but others are concerned about the blow back should they sign the politically radical player.

He went on to say Kaepernick’s “being labeled unpatriotic,” a determination Shannon claimed front office executives find worse that getting behind the wheel of a car and killing someone or domestic violence against a woman or a child.
