The heroic leader of the NFL’s black identity extremists is looking to prove that owners colluded against hiring him as his grievance case begins to proceed.
Legal representatives for former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick are reportedly in the process of demanding that the cellphone and other electronic communications of NFL owners and general managers be turned over to prove that there was a sinister conspiracy to keep him out of the league this year.
The truth is that it was only his own big mouth and itchy Twitter finger that are to blame for what has been called “blackballing” but was more likely an acknowledgment by owners that they were worried about the impact of bringing in such a divisive and radical figure would have on fans and ratings.
Weekly reports on the ratings show that their concerns were well-placed but that will never stop the sense of entitlement that some feel is owed to them by an oppressive white society that some like Kaepernick ally Michael Bennett has referred to as slave owners and the multimillionaire players as chattel.

Colin Kaepernick’s collusion grievance against the NFL is already starting to move forward, sources said, with the sides beginning to exchange communications about how the initial stages of the process should unfold.
During this discovery stage, with requests for evidence made, Kaepnerick’s legal team plans to ask the System Arbitrator hearing the case to compel all owners and high-ranking officials to turn over cell and email correspondence, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, though ultimately the process generally results in a smaller sample granted. Currently, there is a “litigation hold” in place regarding the electronic communication of NFL teams, according to the source, with team officials prohibited from expunging any relevant data.
While getting access to every owner’s phone records seems unlikely to legal experts, Kaepernick’s case would have a particular need to inquire about certain teams that had direct communication with the quarterback, and teams that have suffered injuries at the quarterback position and worked out other players, and those teams whose owners have been in direct contact with President Trump. As previously reported, Trump’s influence and directives regarding Kaepernick and protesting players will be a part of Kaepernick’s collusion argument, with the NFL’s collusion rules in the collective bargaining agreement stipulating that “implied” collusion can take place between an agent outside of the league and member clubs and/or the NFL league office.
The formal discovery requests will include not just owners, but also top executives for the clubs involved.
Once again, the dim-witted aspiring messiah is getting bad advice from his race-baiting puppeteers who are looking for the smoking gun that will tie his joblessness to a vast scheme that none other than President Trump himself is behind.
It’s as loony as the Democrats’ scam to blame Hillary’s loss on Russia colluding with Trump. Collusion seems to be the left’s new organizing principle even if it is all horseshit being pushed by people in tinfoil hats.
Whatever this moron may have been trying to accomplish with his stupid snits has now been co-opted by the anti-Trump resistance.
It’s hard to see how this is going to do anything to bolster his case to find a job again and it’s clear that he is looking for a big payday as well as a high-profile case that will elevate his personal profile in the public eye.
This crusade won’t result in him getting a spot on an NFL roster because, at this rate, there may not even be an NFL by the time that this farce is over.
