When the NFL makes headlines these days, it’s not about how “Team A” beat “Team B” anymore. Our leftist sports media has less and less interest in sports these days and are busy obsessing over politics like the rest of the media. These folks have turned the NFL from professional sports to a daytime soap opera:
Kaepernick opted out of his contract at the conclusion of last season with the expectation he would find a new landing spot but has not gotten a new deal and has received surprisingly little interest compared to how well he played last season. He finished the year with 16 touchdowns and only four interceptions in 12 games.
The 29-year-old was notably the first NFL player to kneel during the national anthem at the start of last season as a protest against racial injustice. The media attention is a holdup for several organizations.
Unfortunately for the NFL, the extreme left DOES want this circus. The NFL should have thought twice before it crawled into bed with these people.
