On Tuesday, NFL owners and executives met with NFL Players Association execs at the league's headquarters in New York City to discuss protesting players amongst other topics. Yesterday, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell spoke with team owners at the league's Fall League Meeting, also in NYC, and he made sure to let the media know that "we want our players to stand" and "we believe everyone should stand for the anthem."
Well, days after Colin Kaepernick filed a grievance against NFL team owners for collusion, the free-agent quarterback clapped back at Goodell's anthem statement without saying a single word.
Instead, Kaep brilliantly broke down Goodell's soundbites and responded to them by re-tweeting some rather woke comments from others to speak for him.
Check out Goodell's press conference and all the ways Kaepernick dissected and destroyed it with these re-tweets.
Little did the commish know that Kaep was going to make him learn the hard way.
Right. If Goodell can really fix his face to say he understands how fans feel about this issue and that the league feels the same way, and then go ahead and add that players should stand, then it is a "blatant erasure of millions of fans, particularly Black fans," as Shaun King tweeted, isn't it?
Shaking our heads at Goodell.
He's referring to the NFL-NFLPA meeting that Kaepernick wasn't invited to.
Yes. Nothing else needs to be said.
