    Unemployed kneeling quarterback Colin Kaepernick drew heavy backlash from NFL fans for his PR stunt “workout” over the weekend.

    Kaepernick staged the workout as an “audition” for football teams that he hopes will hire him after his disrespect for the American national anthem decimated NFL ratings for three straight years.

    ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith slammed Kaepernick, saying the gimmick proves that the washed-up, 32-year-old quarterback is not serious about playing.

    Smith said: “Twenty-five teams show up in Georgia at the Atlanta Falcons practice facility — a state of the art facility with NFL personnel, equipment, video, everything — and what does Colin Kaepernick do? Colin Kaepernick wants to change the venue.”

    Smith continued: “He don’t want to play! He wants to be a martyr.”
    I can't believe Smith would say this !

    As I’ve observed before, even a blind hog finds an acorn now and then.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    Stephen A. actually does make sense on certain occasions. Some sports hosts say things just to get a rise out of people, increase controversy/listeners/viewers.

    He has a lot of money now and no need to play, nobody really wants the loser they just wanted to get him for the end of the season and see him get his ass handed to him. I don't watch it since it stopped being football and started being a political meeting on sunday. I don't miss it and soon I expect the college game to also get crapped on after they now can make millions, they will get uppity and start all that garbage in college ball. I can turn that off too, I already pretty much have turned off nascar for being such a greedy bunch. There is lots of room out there for entrepreneurs to re establish a good football league and a racing league that actually allows racing.
