Colin Kaepernick is less known for his athletic ability than he is for his un-American ability to turn an entire fan base against the NFL for his supposed activism against “oppression.” However, he does seem to know how to stay relevant in the news, even if his relevance is only for our own entertainment. While he did his best to completely destroy an American sport with his pathetic and asinine rhetoric about how oppressed he feels, even though he was taken in and raised by rich white parents, Kaepernick has really accomplished nothing but create a tighter and more pronounced Patriotism among other NFL teams.
The Dallas Cowboys have been given a standing order, literally, by the teams owner Jerry Jones. If you want to be Cowboy you had best be ready to stand for the Anthem or remove yourself from the team!
According to the US Herald :
Just days away from the kick-off of the NFL’s 2017 preseason, with players competing in training camp as they vie for a spot on the final roster, Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, has issued an unequivocal statement to his players.
If anyone expects to suit up in the silver and blue this season, standing during the singing of The Star Spangled Banner is expected. Jones sees it as a measure of respect for the fans, as well the military and the USA.
Last season, San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, suddenly “discovered” he felt discriminated against and persecuted as a black man, and decided to show his anger by taking a knee during the traditional playing of the anthem before games. Kaepernick was released by the 49ers and is now a free agent with only weeks to go before the season begins.
That the QB, abandoned by his birth parents and raised by a white family who nurtured his athletic ability as a child and has played for the NFL for millions of dollars, sees himself as a victim went beyond laughable to many longtime NFL fans. After a season that saw viewership of NFL games plummet, with Monday Night Football down 24% from the previous year, Sunday Night Football down 19% and Thursday night down 18%, Sports Illustrated surveyed football fans about their decision to turn off the sport they love.
One reader acknowledged that while Kaepernick had a right to express himself, “he (and the league, and the owners and coaches who support him) need to understand their disrespect of the flag, the country and the thousands who have died to give him the right to express himself is producing some serious consequences for them.”
Another responded, “Until Kap started showing his utter disrespect I was watching two to four NFL games per week. Now I watch none.” Another summed it up concisely. “For the previous 18 years, the face of the league was Peyton Manning. Now it is a guy who doesn’t stand for the national anthem.” Enough said.
Jones’s Dallas Cowboys will face off against the Arizona Cardinals in Canton, Ohio, site of the National Football League Hall of Fame, on August 3. The regular season begins on September 7. Now let’s see who decides they want to show up on game day.
Freedom Daily recently ran a report that stated the general manager of the NFL said that in addition to the NFL teams “genuinely hating Kaepernick,” that they feel that not signing him as a “good form of punishment” for disrespecting our country. “They think showing no interest is a form of punishment,” the general manager said, according to Bleacher Report. “Some teams believe Kaepernick cannot play at a high level anymore.”
ESPN’s Jeremy Schaap also weighed in on Kaepernick still remaining unsigned as the NFL’s 2017 preseason mini-camps are now rapidly approaching, saying that NFL owners and managers aren’t willing to risk taking on the disgraced star because he is a “distraction” to the game. “You cannot deny that he has been, to some degree, a distraction, whatever that means,” Schaap replied. “There’s one thing that NFL owners, NFL general managers don’t want in a backup quarterback, we’ve heard this before, and it’s a distraction.”
That is basically all Kaepernick is or ever will be, a distraction. Jerry Jones isn’t willing to set aside his Patriotism nor the values that have been a staple of the Cowboy’s brand from the beginning. Jerry Jones should be thanked for standing his ground and making the requirements to be a player under his label quite clear.
God Bless true Americans!
