    NFL ‘Disappointed’ at Kaepernick for Not Appearing at Workout

    And, in a nutshell, *that* is what is wrong with him and his ilk of crybaby, entitlement demanding, asswipes...

    Hope the NFL learned a lesson but I doubt it...




    The NFL arranged a workout for Colin Kaepernick that was going to be attended by more than two dozen teams.

    However, after Kaepernick refused to agree to the league’s conditions regarding the workout, the league’s original anthem protester did a work out at a local Atlanta high school instead.

    The NFL released a lengthy statement to describe their disappointment at Kaepernick for choosing to work out at the high school.

    He informed us of that decision at 2:30 pm today along with the public.

    Today’s session was designed to give Colin what he has consistently said he wants – an opportunity to show his football readiness and desire to return to the NFL. Twenty-five (25) clubs were present for the workout, and all 32 clubs, their head coaches, general managers, and other personnel executives would have received video footage of the interview and workout, shot by the Atlanta Falcons video crew. It is important to note the following:

    As stated above, more than three-fourths of NFL clubs were present for today’s workout.

    The NFL made considerable effort to work cooperatively with Colin’s representatives. We invited his agent to suggest questions for the interview. Yesterday, when Colin’s representatives said he wanted to bring his own receivers to the workout, we agreed to the request. In addition, Coach Hue Jackson discussed with Colin’s agent what drills would be run at the workout so that Colin would know what would be expected of him.

    Last night, when Nike, with Colin’s approval, requested to shoot an ad featuring Colin and mentioning all the NFL teams present at the workout, we agreed to the request.

    On Wednesday, we sent Colin’s representatives a standard liability waiver based on the waiver used by National Invitational Camp at all NFL Combines and by NFL clubs when trying out free agent players. At noon today, Colin’s representatives sent a completely rewritten and insufficient waiver.

    We heard for the first time last night, around the same time we heard from Nike, that Colin wanted to bring his own video crew. We heard for the first time this afternoon that Colin wanted to open the event to all media.

    We agreed to have Colin’s representatives on the field while the workout was being conducted and to allow them to see how it was being recorded. We did so even though we have been clear from the beginning that this is private workout. As is typical with NFL Combines, one video crew was prepared to shoot and distribute video of the interview and workout. We confirmed with Colin’s representatives that they would receive both the video that would be sent to all 32 clubs as well as the raw footage from the entire event, which is unprecedented.

    The location Colin selected is more than an hour away from Flowery Branch.

    ​We are grateful to the Falcons, who made available the club’s first-class facility, along with athletic training, equipment, and communications staff to ensure that today’s workout would occur under ideal conditions, to coaches Hue Jackson and Joe Philbin, who were prepared to run a workout that would allow Colin to demonstrate his skill level, and to Jeff Foster and the Combine staff for arranging for other players to participate and for managing the logistics of the workout.

    Colin’s decision has no effect on his status in the League. He remains an unrestricted free agent eligible to sign with any club.

    As Breitbart Sports reported on Friday, the details and conditions of Kaepernick’s workout had been a source of tension from the outset. So much so, that ESPN’s Adam Schefter expressed doubt that the workout would even happen.

    Pretty much. As one of the Youtubers I watch [[Black dude in case it matters]] said "He's not a good QB. He filled in for a season as Second String and he had a good season because the other teams did not have video of him to go by and learn his moves. After that it was downhill and that's why he started the whole kneeling thing."

    Absolutely. He doesn't want a quarterback job (likely not good enough) just a lofty position as a Media Doofus flapping his gums on a platform operating on his rules and at his desired level of compensation. The game of football is no longer the issue. The race card and his hate for America IS everything.

    I think the NFL may be on the razor edge of sending that tool packing. Can't happen soon enough in my opinion.

    The NFL will keep kissing his ass. He doesn't want to play, all he wants is money for flapping his gums and showing the country how stupid he is.

    JMHO and I really don't know much about football but it seems to me that if you have been out of the game for as long as he has, there is probably no way you could compete at the level demanded by the pro's. Moving the training session was just a way for this little prima donna to not be embarrassed. With all the demands he put out there, he's trying to make it look like the NFL is to blame. He really doesn't want to play, just wants to stir the pot and claim the race card. After all, so far it's worked well for him financially.

    Any team would be a fool for picking him up.

    No. This wasted act of intercourse would be MUCH better used in a Soviet-style penal battalion in a war zone, clearing minefields with outdated equipment under heavy fire.

    This. Only he isn't stupid. He figured out how to get the system to pay him big bucks and not get the crap kicked out of his body.

    And in the mix of his asshattery he still manages to play the victim. Must of studied how Hillary conducted herself.

    Actually, he is worth more as he is now than one of more than 4 dozen NFL quarterbacks. Keep in mind as a solo individual attempting to drive his brand, what is better than what he did. If he got an offer and refused, then his value drops. Worse is he accepts an offer and fails to produce, then his value drops. Anything other than what he did drops his value.

    He made a solid choice.

    Well, this should end the whining that he's being "blackballed" by the league or individual teams.

    No it won't. That is how he now makes his money....ie: the NFL is racist as they were unwilling to meet my needs in order to show just how good I am.... or something along that line. No matter what the NFL did or offered, he wasn't going to show up. He just had to keep upping the price until they bailed.

    If he ever truly loved the sport, no amount of money will resolve the damage to his carrer.

    He will never get those years back that would have made his career metrics.

    Only, he probably never even liked the game so huge victim payments are ok with him. The only way to punish an attention whore is to ignore him.

    Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can't give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody.

    He's modeling a behavior.

    Even if there are pay-off reparations to make it right, some aren't ever going to do anything for themselves and continue to play victims.

    I dunno... he really did seem like a guy who loved to play... and it's hard to tell how good he coukd have bern. He clearly gad the physical attributes and some apparent talent, but I don't know if the fall-off in his level of play was due to lack of real talent or (my opinion) losing his focus on the game thanks to his muslim girlfriend.

    What gets me even more than his idiotic choices in terms of his career is his choice to convert from what appeared to be an authentic Faith in Christ to (apparently) choosing to become Muslim. I think he's going to greatly regret many of his life choices in the coming years, but that one is goingto haunt him for eternity...

    By changing the place and the rules for the tryout

    … all this idiot did was show that he won't abide by any rules and will do what ever the h*ll he wants to do

    Why any team would pick him up even for a backup is beyond me. He's nothing but trouble and a team destroyer.

    This was all about publicity.

    This was all about Nike shooting a commercial for the super bowl. Something along the lines of "Never forget your DREAMS!!!" Or something to that effect.

    The icing on the cake. It can now be said that one team, the Cleveland Browns, has offered a tryout as a result of the athletic display. Only thing is, not sure Colin is going to be too excited by it.

    Colin Kaepernick Workout Yields WR Tryout With Browns

    5-6 minutes

    Colin Kaepernick’s high-profile workout on Nov. 16 for NFL scouts, coaches and executives has yet to generate any opportunities for the free agent quarterback.

    However, Jordan Veasy —one of his wide receivers from the workout — has earned an opportunity to tryout with the Cleveland Browns.

    According to Howard Balzer, Veasy was among the six players who the Browns worked out on Monday.
