Colin Kaepernick could win millions in NFL lawsuit

On hand at the meeting were Goodell and the league's football operations chief, former player Troy Vincent; and owners Michael Bidwill (Arizona), Arthur Blank (Atlanta), Terry Pegula (Buffalo), Robert McNair (Houston), Shad Khan (Jacksonville), Ross, Robert Kraft (New England), John Mara (New York Giants), Art Rooney (Pittsburgh), Jeffrey Lurie (Philadelphia) and Jed York (San Francisco). Goodell spent a day in Philadelphia with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and players, as well as local officials, to learn about the criminal justice reform work Jenkins has been leading in his community, the cause for which he raises his fist during the anthem before games. If Kaepernick could prove owners colluded against signing him due to his protests, it would be a big black eye for the league, even with a portion of fans that disagree with the national anthem protests. "If you're going to throw a fit and cost the NFL a ton of money, you better make up for it on the field". Under Article 17, Section 16 (c) of the CBA, termination can arise from only one incident of collusion involving only one player if there is clear and convincing evidence of a violation. Some people feel the players should protest by kneeling and others, including myself, feel it is a disgrace to our flag, country, and military.

The Kaepernick story subsided until President Donald Trump made it a more prominent issue in late September.

The NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement language on collusion notes that, "No Club, its employees or agents shall enter into any agreement, express or implied, with the NFL or any other Club, its employees or agents to restrict or limit individual Club decision-making". Prior to that, the group of players that includes the 49ers Eric Reid and Colts Darius Butler (who arrived after playing in a Monday night game), will meet with a smaller group of owners, per Sports Illustrated. In other words, it will take more than shiny branding or some PSAs played during game broadcasts.

Many advocates of Kaepernick claim is he far more experienced and talented than several starting quarterbacks in the league.

"I have great respect for the men and women that have fought for this country", Kaepernick has said about this controversy.

"Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the national anthem", Goodell wrote. The Chiefs are coming off their first loss of the season, as they fell at home to Pittsburgh on Sunday. The protesters shouted at him about white supremacy while Jones was surrounded by bodyguards.

Still, Kaepernick remains unemployed.

Whether he wins may largely depend on whether emails, texts, or other materials exist that could help Kaepernick to prove that there was indeed an agreement not to sign him. Trying to detach it from politics would be like trying to detach Ridley Scott's face-humper alien from the head of the poor bastard it is humping.
