    Dude, you have white privilege on the brain... do you wake up every day and apologize for being white? lol
    No, I think Go Beavers has already made it clear that he doesn't apologize for being white.

    And you don't see the problem with someone automatically assuming that a black woman can't be an "actual physician"?

    My comment has nothing to do with the article, didn't read it... I just noticed he must post "white privilege" every 4-5 posts...

    No big deal

    Well, it is a thread about racism and protest, so the term may come up more often than in the "What are you drinking right now?" thread.

    just read he left the team/fired....true ? if so what a surprise ! and good luck finding another team....at least until this mess clears up and he realizes where his money comes from.

    Godfather.

    false.

    he wasn't protesting his team or his sport. this has zero to do with him "realizing where his money comes from".
    but he used his team, it's media time and position to protest and if he doesn't realize where his money comes from he's not a very smart man. he's costing the NFL money, remember what NFL stands for ? "Not For Long" if you don't fly straight, people see enough of that crap on the news and don't watch football to see some yahoo do it during their favorite sport.

    Godfather.


    6th year in the league which is longer than 90% of nfl players and starting this weekend so...
    think he'll get 7 ?...I doubt it.

    Godfather.

    it dosen't matter to me what a man dose for a living you understand..
    as long as his interest's don't conflict with mine.

    This is a pretty decent analogy.
    It's akin to fans not liking EV talking politics between songs.
    It kinda interrupts the rhythm.
    i didn't see any analogy from GF.
    go ahead and guess, some folks here usually do.

    Yup he'll get a 7th year, this may surprprise you, most of the NFL is about winning, fact is he's an experienced QB ... so if San Francisco releases him, he"ll find a team. By the way he's not a a distraction, most of the time tv doesn't show the national anthem and other than here I haven't heard his name mentioned much other than he got the start at Buffalo.

    LOL! I lived in San Diego all my life I know the Chargers never seemed worried about winning ! but I could believe that he'd get a 7th

    Kap is done after this year unless he shows major improvements. He was good at the zone read but that fad is done.
  • JimmyVJimmyV Boston's MetroWestPosts: 12,101
    I don't know. There are 32 NFL teams but only like 10 good QB's every year. As recently as a few years ago Kap was one of them. Gotta believe some desperate GM somewhere will give him another shot.

    You're acting kind of weird.

    To the rest of the current discussion... Kap will be in the league next year, but that's not saying much. He'll always be known as the guy who protested in the national anthem. If not, he'll be known as the guy with the most ridiculous hair ever. He'll never be known as a great NFL quarterback... better yet... even as a decent NFL quarterback.
