The sports media has been Colin Kaepernick’s biggest supporter, largely praising his protest of police brutality last year and arguing he’s a better quarterback than many of the career backups signed during the 2017 offseason.
But now that it appears the 29-year-old quarterback is being blackballed by NFL owners, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith thinks those same media cheerleaders should take some responsibility for Kaepernick’s unemployment status.
Any NFL team that even thinks about signing Kaepernick, such as the Ravens, gets pounded by fans who were insulted by his protest of the U.S. flag/national anthem last season. Despite his vow not to protest again in 2017, Kaepernick is still looking for a job. So Smith asked Monday on “First Take”: Where are Kaepernick’s supporters now?
“Many have shared in the victories, the great accomplishments and the breakthroughs, but there’s only one who has logged as many miles and made as many sacrifices,” said Warner, who praised his outspoken wife for having “the best hair ever.” “There’s only one who was wounded by every criticism, felt every hit, suffered with every interception, and comforted me in every setback. Only one who’s dealt with all the good, the bad and unpredictable this adventure has had to offer.
“Brenda, you above all others, deserve to share this stage with Cheap Zach Parise Wild Jerseys me. The Cheap Youth NFL Jerseys greatest joy in my life has been having you by my side.”
