  • Wow that's a far cry from the huge numbers being thrown out before. Not nearly the black eye that people, myself included, thought it was.

  • If this low payout is true it lends to the notion that Kaepernick did not want the blunt scouting reports regarding his football abilities entered into the public record.

    Even with that, pennies on the dollar. All that posturing and kneeling and political BS for what?

    It seems like that will be the story for the rest of time "I heard" or "Reported by" nothing really definitive will come out unless someone leaks the severance contract.

    For what you ask? How about increased media exposure and a giant contract from Nike and who knows from elsewhere. You think he could of got this attention on playing ability alone?

    Not making any political statements, but I thought Avenatti was slimy from day 1.

    Edit- Avenatti is not representing Kaepernick or Smollett, however, Mark Geragos, who is representing them, was charged as a co-conspirator with Avenatti.

    He certainly didn't do it for a cause. His cause was BS. The whole damn thing was BS. He would've made a lot more money just pretending to look like a QB. No, the payout wasn't worth the hassle. What did he actually accomplish? NOTHING.
    Ask yourself if anything is different because of him.

    Kaepernick's 'socially conscious' girlfriend. He started dating her right before he started protesting and wearing stupid clothes.

    Who cares if anything is different?
    You think all who choose to be activists see a change?

    The cause may be BS to you. It wasnt to a lot of NFL players and you have no idea what it was for Kaep.

  • People have acted like Kaep is Satan or something. He's not out beating women or getting busted for drugs etc. He stood for something, and he clearly made his point. And with the $ he is making on endorsements, he is doing just fine. I stand for the anthem, but people have a right to do what they want to, regardless if we agree or not. And all these people who are "boycotting the NFL" because a few players took a knee? Settle Down Beavis...….

    Lucrative and wholly inefficient compared to the alternative.

    It's like the recent 2 Billion dollar settlement against Monsato out of Oakland - Are we to believe that suing Monsato for Roundup's known carcinogenic properties (which they buried) is lucrative for the plaintiffs that got cancer? Sure.

    Does it being lucrative debase the plaintiff's claim of harm and is cancer not really an issue here?

    To tie this back to Kaep, one who dismisses the righteousness out of hand and elevates the lucrative incentive position is verily too cynical to consider. One can consider the claim of impairment as lacking legal merit. But the hanging the claim solely on a cynical projection of motivation is not a compelling one.

    If Kaep had any impact in keeping STUPID Malik McDowell from being shot and killed in his Februarly cop altercation, then I suppose he can claim a degree of success. Watch the video...

    Seemed to me a lot of people might wind up dead in that situation McDowell created, regardless of skin color.

    I don't dismiss the "righteousness" of anything he says just because I don't like Kaeperpick, personally. I never disliked hm just because he was a Niner. I have come to dislike him, personally, post-career, because he happens to be wrong about stuff and is a POS about it. The only thing useful he has done is show the world the true character of Nike, not as a company to be boycotted, but, as a company to forever be avoided so long as it exists.

    Why should Nike be avoided? Because they chose a spokesperson you REVILE simply because he has different political views from you?

    Let’s not act like you don’t get worked up just thinking about him. Blood pressure rising, all that stuff.

    Choosing a spokesman with bad/incorrect politics is usually a bad idea. I don't allow clowns like Kaeperpick enough time to cause me health problems. Back when he was a failing QB, I had to give him multiple 3-hour stretches of my time per season, and I had no idea he would devolve into such a lowlife. Now, I have no such obligations in my schedule.

    I’m impressed that you magically know the answers to the subjective questions regarding ethics and polics despite the fact that even the brightest philosphers in history from Aristotle to Kant could not solve those problems and to this day humanity has not found a definitive, objective, scientifically proven series of answers.
