i'll eat some crow on this one, at first i was skeptical of the blackballing narrative. my feeling was that it was similar to the T3bow situation, where the player's talent just isn't worth the surrounding media fracas-- obviously Kaep is better than T3bow but i still thought the attention wouldn't be worth it.
i'm not familiar (nor do i think really anyone else is) around the contract negotiations Kaep has had with teams since he was first released, but i think its impossible to honestly deny that his protest is the driving force behind the reason he no longer has a job, any job, in the NFL.
also, i'll admit was still pretty salty about the 2013 playoff game and didnt like Kaep or want him to succeed-- but i have a ton of respect for how he has carried himself in the time since and think in the future he'll be looked at in a similar light to a controversial sports great like Ali.
You seriously protest-shaming from your computer at home? LOL get off your ass and go film us a tutorial at one of these protests so we can see how it's done. You're right, these "peaceful protesters" should be out there curb-stomping cops' asses so you can have some more Twitter clips of police brutality to share...what a brave activist you are.
I respect the hell out of anyone out there protesting in whatever manner they choose...peaceful or otherwise. You don't get to choose how people express their anguish.
