Colin Kaepernick and the NFL have been at odds for three years and counting

Colin Kaepernick and the NFL have been at odds for three years and counting

The NFL, although has yet to admit it publicly, has colluded against him and intentionally misinformed everyone of his reason for peacefully protesting.

Kaepernick kneeled at the start of games during the National Anthem in order to bring awareness of police brutality against members of the African-American community, not because he was being unpatriotic.

The NFL had been previously investigated by the United State government and was found guilty of requesting payments in order to hold armed forces and first responders events during games, the investigation is named Paid-Patriotism.

Even one of their very own sponsors -NIKE, sided with Colin Kaepernick and publicly acknowledged that he was the victim of collusion, and character assassination.

You can essentially say that, there is zero trust between both parties.

That’s why the sudden and spontaneous offer to hold a private workout for Colin Kaepernick after three years did not – frankly!, sounded on the “Up And UP” from the start.

No media member was being granted credentials to the private workout by the NFL, Kaepernick would have to sign a waiver accepting all their terms and the NFL was in charge of controlling all narratives, being photos, video and written scouting reports to be use.

Everyone knew from the very start, that both parties involved were going to try to get the better of each other, only question was how would the finals details run.

I must admit that I did not see this one coming.

As the first signs of trouble appeared, Stephen A. Smith from ESPN-First Take, uploaded a video statement which went viral within minutes speaking on behalf of the NFL and accusing Colin Kaepernick of being maliciously misleading, essentially being a hired Mouth Piece for the league.

Out his numerous rants, this was by far Stephen A. Smith most tasteless because he’s in entitle to his opinion of course, but ignoring the obvious NFL’s attempts to have complete control of all the narratives and not siding with the media community – which he’s member of!, not only being intentionally “Kept Out The Loop” in a censorship matter, well the whole thing reeked of “Selling Out”.

“Stephen A. Smith Tap dancing for the NFL like ⬇️. Damn straight Colin wants to control the narrative! He supposed to trust the organization that blackballed him and has done absolutely nothing in good faith??? Born on Tuesday, just not last Tuesday.”, Eric Reed.

The NFL’s plan was exposed from the beginning, except for the Stephen A. Smith factor, who was obviously commissioned to do their bidding, however in spite accusations and “Finger Pointing” from all sides, it was not a total loss.

It was great news to hear that one of the wide receivers from the workout, Jordan Veasy was signed to the Washington Redskin’s practice squad.

Congratulations are in order for Jordan.

Iconic Classics

Iconic Classics

As a sports enthusiast, I’ve been very fortunate to see and experience some great moments in sports history.
One of my favorites is going be honored on December 10th at the Madison Square Garden, in New York City.

The annual Jimmy V Basketball Classic.

Even children, who were not born at the time, have heard or seen videos of this iconic moment in sports history.

The upcoming NCAA Basketball Tournament has turned into such a spectacular show, nowadays covered by endless media platforms and it’s impossible not to be aware of what’s going on during March Madness.
Now it’s my privilege to tell you exactly, how all of it has gotten to this point.

There are numerous coaches and basketball programs in the NCAA Tournament with a lot of more victories and titles, but as far as I am concern the true meaning behind the spirit of March Madness will always belong to Jim Valvano and his 1983 North Carolina State Wolfpack.

The Wolfpack had no chance to get in the 1983 NCAA Tournament unless they won the ACC Tournament outright, which would earn North Carolina State an automatic bid to March Madness.

They were a middle of the pack at best, so what happened next, is the stuff which dreams are made of.

Not only did they ACC Tournament, but also within a month’s time, after a magical stretch run, a video clip showing Valvano running up and down the court in disbelief after winning the 1983 NCAA championship and looking for someone to hug, made him the Avatar of March Madness.

Valvano, eventually lost his battle with cancer in 1993, just eight weeks after giving his legendary speech at the ESPY Awards, but not only has Jimmy V remained a March Madness icon, but his fighting spirit has become a symbol of courage and inspiration for many, many others.

The Jimmy V Classic and The V Foundation are testaments to the man’s fighting spirit.

“…Now I’m fighting cancer, everybody knows that. People ask me all the time about how you go through your life and how’s your day, and nothing is changed for me…Cancer can take away all of my physical abilities. It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart, and it cannot touch my soul…Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up!”, Jim Valvano.

May you always rest in peace, Coach…They don’t make ’em like Jimmy V, anymore! (VIDEO)
