The NFL is Not Sports, It’s Now a Soap Opera

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:

Here’s the latest plot twist in the soap opera:

After remaining unsigned through six weeks of the 2017 NFL season, Colin Kaepernick claims the league is participating in collusion.

According to Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman, the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has filed a grievance against the owners for collusion under the latest collective bargaining agreement.

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.

As former Tennessee Titans general manager Floyd Reese recently explained to 102.5 The Game (via Jason Wolf of the Tennessean), “You don’t want this circus.”

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.
