How about you realize that you just plain suck Colin???
Does he have a case? I don't think so. Seems the new word the left
likes to use now is collusion when they do not get their way.

Colin Kaepernick files grievance against NFL owners for collusion

Nobody will hire him!
That HAS to mean that all the owners got together (probably a conference call) and decided "No, none of us will hire him, ever again." It simply can't be that the owners individually made up their own minds.
Oh, and the NFL had to be in on the decision making process, too.
Pooor baaaby!
Perhaps he needs to find another line of work. But, will anybody in that line hire him?
That's a good question!

One simply cannot render an informed opinion based upon what scant knowledge there is.

Mr. Kaepernick filed a grievance; apparently, he was obligated to do so (per NFL bargaining agreement) within 90 days of his discovery of 'collusion'. Perhaps he or his agent has proof that two or more of the NFL teams agreed to not even consider Mr. Kaepernick as a free agent. Who knows? I believe that a neutral arbitrator will be retained to resolve the issue.

Individual teams can decide to not retain his services due to feeling that his presence would be a distraction. There is no obligation to hire him.

Mr. Kaepernick has a pretty hefty burden to show that two, or more, NFL team owners met (whether in person, by email, telephone, etc.) and mutually decided that Mr. Kaepernick would not be retained again by the NFL. In the arbitration process, I will note, there is no 'discovery', so I don't think he can have a judge order the various teams to release their emails, etc.

Of course, if he can prove such, he stands to be awarded 'triple damages', of whatever he could show was his loss of earnings.

Anyway, no vote from me. Perhaps later, if more evidence is forthcoming.

Nobody wants him. He thought he was all that by going free agent. Now he thinks all the teams are shunning him.

Hopefully he'll be ordered to pay all the attorney fees to defend this lawsuit.
