The continuation of the NFL career of Colin Kaepernick was already a longshot after his turn towards activism that made general managers squeamish but you can now pretty much chisel it into stone that he will NEVER play another league game again.
The former San Francisco 49er who has come to see himself as some sort of messianic figure just dropped a load of napalm on whatever rickety bridges that may have remained open to him.
Kaepernick tweeted his endorsement for the female African-American ESPN host Jemele Hill who called President Donald Trump a white supremacist and ignited a firestorm that will add to the troubles of the cable sports network that has embraced leftist politics and hostility towards traditional institutions, alienating millions in the who just want to enjoy the escapism of sports in the process.
It was just the latest idiotic tweet from this narcissistic loser who really outdid himself this time.
Going on record as supporting someone who made a shockingly racist comment falsely accusing the legitimately elected President of the United States of being a “white supremacist” even tops the great one’s referring to police as “slave catchers” a few months back.
A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn't need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled! pic.twitter.com/BVVPVZIQyD

If the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton ever opens a wing for feats of stupidity, Kaepernick’s statue should stand there.
Burning bridges doesn’t really describe how Kaepernick has blasted his own career to smithereens. It is more reminiscent of the destruction of Colonel Kurtz’s jungle compound during the original end credits of “Apocalypse Now” in terms of the massive damage that the man has done to himself.
That radical gal of yours sure must be good in the sack Kap, hope that it was worth it.
