Kaepernick.....

No issue with is freedom of speech but the truly "oppressed" of the United States are the middle class. Regardless of race,religion,gender or location the American middle class is under siege. Taxed into oblivion. Screwed for playing by the rules, for being economically responsible and conscientious. We pay for the welfare checks,the food stamps the public education ,the Section 8 housing, the "affordable" housing and the health care for the millions and millions who have NOT been economically responsible or conscientious.We foot the bill for millions of illegals ( criminals) who are welcomed into the U.S. by traitors from both political parties.

The scales have been tipped. The takers outnumber the contributors and the federal government puts up one roadblock after another for the contributors.

Colin Kaepernick saw the writing on the wall. Perhaps washed up in the NFL and on the brink of fading into oblivion he takes a stand ( or in this case a seat) that keeps him relevant if only for a few more weeks. If he does get cut he will have a lot of free time. He can ride around for a couple of night shifts with cops from any inner-city. Maybe take a stroll through the south side of Chicago...do a few weeks with troops in Afghanistan. If he really wants to SEE oppression he should spend time with Christians who live in Egypt. Now THAT is oppression! Why do I get the feeling that it's only a matter of time before he changes his name?

Bear, I realize this is a Political forum but Kaepernick has put the 49'ers in a tough spot if he is indeed on the verge of being released.  They'll have a PR nightmare on their hands for justifiably cutting him based on performance in the wake of his comments.  Think of it, he could fall right into Jerry Jones' lap.  A perfect Cowboy.

Hey Mike. At this point I don't think it matters where we post any topic. This Message Board is DOA. I'm thinking maybe 4 or 5 people read it.

I agree with you. The 49'ers were probably going to cut him. He has been brutal for 2 years. Now they have to deal with being accused of cutting him because of his political/social views. I'm tempted to give Kaepernick credit for creating this situation to keep his spot on the team but I don't think he's that intelligent. Looks like he's being manipulated by his Egyptian girlfriend as his career comes to an end. I wonder if the Vikings take a shot and Dallas would sign a member of ISIS if they thought it would help them get into the playoffs. He needs to read a history book or two. I think the dumbest thing he said was that there is no difference between the Confederate flag and the American flag. Tell that to the ancestors of the 100,000 Black troops who fought in the Civil War and the hundreds of thousands of white Union soldiers who died in the Civil War.  After watching week 3 of Hard Knocks with my son I told him there were a few places in America were your skin color means absolutely nothing. No affirmative action, no feelings of superiority or entitlement and 2 of them are the United States military and the NFL. Kaepernick should have had someone besides his Muslim girlfriend read his "stuff" before he tweeted it.

Bear, I don't think the Vikings touch him - his act will not play well in Norse country and I think their ownership has tried hard to get good people since the Love Boat incident.   Mark Sanchez, on the other hand, makes sense for either team.  Although how brutal must he have been in Denver to lose the job to a guy who has never thrown a pass in the NFL.  Amazing.  You've got to feel awful for Teddy Bridgewater.  Apparently that was a brutal injury.

You are right about the Forums.  Usually they pick up as a reunion approaches but I don't feel it at all.

The Mets can't hit but they don't give up, do they?  I like what the Yankees are doing too.  In a couple years NY could have two VERY good teams.  Who manages them though?

How in the world can Jared Goff not know where the sun rises and sets.  Does that become a new Wonderlic question?

On a lark,I revisited 'THe Site".  Surprised,but happy that people are posting.  I live on facebook now.  Surprising number of alumni that I chat with there.  If you are on FB friend me Jack Budzynski if you would like.  So I will sum up my thoughts.  Mets a maybe in the wild card.  Wished Backman had not left.  There is more material available politics wise to please let,right,center, or alternate universe. And that is just just NYC!  Keep the juices flowing guys.  Forgot the Yankees.  Cashman did one hell of a job.
