The Business Standard News has received leaked emails confirming that the NFL has blackballed quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
An NFL insider, who asked to remain anonymous, said Kaepernick’s decision to kneel during the national anthem to protest police violence was too much for team owners.
“Look, we can handle players beating their wives, raping underage girls, gambling, doing drugs, and getting into bar fights, but respecting the national anthem is just too much,” said the NFL insider who went by “Chip.”
Kaepernick last played for the San Francisco 49ers. Apart from protesting police violence, he also recently organized a food aid delivery to famine victims in Somalia.
According to Bleacher Report writer Mike Freeman, Kaepernick has essentially been declared persona non grata by the NFL.
“I don’t want him anywhere near my team,” said one executive. “He’s a traitor.” Another executive said: “He has no respect for our country.”
According to Freeman, Kaepernick is as hated as former Carolina Panthers player Rae Carruth who arranged the murder of his pregnant girlfriend.
