Giving credit where it's due re: Kaepernick
Say what you want about Colin - he's currently executing one of the most difficult things to pull off... he's showing the discipline to stay out of the spotlight and deny himself the temptation to talk with media regarding everything that's going on.

Every day, every hour that passes without a Kaepernick interview helps whet the public's appetite for when he eventually speaks or writes or runs for office. I despise what he started but I would damn well go out of my way to watch 60 Minutes or whatever he does next.

Maybe I'm giving too much credit, but IMO he's enhancing his brand among his followers in a way that rivals what Trump achieved in 2015 and 2016.

It's basically the opposite of what Hillary Clinton is doing. I'd say that Kaepernick is now the most sought after long interview subject in North America.

What could he get for a book deal right now? I'd guess $3 million or more - and growing.

I said this to my bros last weekend...of course that hot little number he's with is the mouthpiece in that relationship

That might be true but I don't think he's remaining quiet to boost his brand. He's silent because of the huge public backlash against his brand.

She's 36 I think - still looks good and really young. One of them will run for office IMO.

He only started this whole charade to score points with his hot BLM girlfriend.

Are they even still together now? Maybe the deal was he only has to "protest" for so long.

Dude no he's not. He's still tweeting stupid $&@# on the reg.

And if you don't believe that...Ray Lewis went on the record to say the reason Baltimore didn't pick him up was because of his GF's tweet about NFL owners and players looking like some scene out of Django Unchained.

So even if he's not tweeting his cohorts are.

You know he scored higher on the Wonderlic than Brees or Brady or Manning or Elway or Marino or Harbaugh or Shuler or Rivers or Rodgers or Romo?

Somebody who gives up his career for a political stance is definitely somebody who is willing to run for political office.

He has been well informed of how dumb he looks when he does speak. It only hurts his brand to speak.

Too much credit, you may give, good sir.

Seriously, he's a blithering idiot.

I'm glad of what he started, this plus the mix of Trump calling these people out you can really see who hates this country.

It's an IQ test essentially.

Players are also administered a unique intelligence measurement called the Wonderlic Personnel Test. The test is a sort of IQ test used to measure players' aptitude for learning and problem solving. The possible score range is 1 to 50.
