Great news: NFL protests now about … gender pay gap; Update: Irony

When Colin Kaepernick first started his sideline protests, it was specifically about police brutality. He even wore socks depicting police officers as pigs in pre-game warm-ups to emphasize the point. In the year or so since, the protests morphed into a general complaint about racism in society, and then into an act of defiance against Donald Trump a few weeks ago.

So … what exactly are players protesting by kneeling during the anthem now? Former NFL star turned CNN contributor Donté Stallworth has checked in with his pals on the field, who now say that they’re protesting … well, everything. Among the top issues, according to Stallworth on Saturday, is the gender pay gap.

What do their overpaid asses know about it? There aren't a lot of professional female athletes out there, and fewer that make millions a year. Maybe Serena Williams makes as much as an NFL player, because she wins cash when she wins a tournament. Plus, she makes money off of advertising and endorsements, like most professional athletes of prominence. But she's the only female athlete whose wealth comes close to that of male athletes that I can think of. The WNBA isn't all that profitable. Detroit had a great team a few years ago, and they still ended up going bankrupt. Even with great coach like Laimbeer.

Their so called grievances are about as long as Hillary's list of reasons why she lost.
