A few days ago I posted what I said would be my next-to-last post on the NFL spectacle, unless something else interesting happened. Well, guess what? Something else interesting happened! So this will be my next-to-last post, barring further idiocy. (Of course, that “barring further idiocy” could keep me posting on this for the next eon.)
More NFL goodness, a.k.a., the circus continues:
Hopeless idiot Colin Krapohead, or whatever his name is, is filing a grievance against the NFL because no one will hire him. Er, what’s the grievance? Who, exactly, is guilty of what? The word being used is “collusion,” as in, “Coaches are colluding against me!” The statement from Krapohead’s lawyer is “Trump sux! Legacy of slavery!” Yeah, seriously.
The “Trump sux” part: “athletes should not be denied employment based on partisan political provocation by the Executive Branch of our government.” Jesus. It really is unbelievable how brazen the left is.
First of all, Krapohead is not unemployed because of Trump; he’s unemployed because he’s a crappy quarterback – he went 1-10 in his most recent season, yikes! – who will be a PR nightmare for any team that hires him.
Secondly, he was unemployed months before Trump called out the NFL for coddling these privileged little drama queens. Latest SJW narrative: Trump has a time machine! Fuck, but these people are desperate.
Thirdly, to turn a football game into a political event, as Krapohead did when he protested the anthem, and then whine that the President is engaging in politics, is vomit-inducingly hypocritical. God, but SJWs are such sick, sub-human little fucks. No normal human being could manage that level of hypocrisy. It’s like the old joke about the guy who murders his parents, then begs the judge for leniency on the grounds that he’s an orphan. The sheer brazen assholery and hypocrisy of these people just defies belief.
But it gets worse: His lawyer actually said this: “If the NFL (as well as all professional sports leagues) is to remain a meritocracy, then…” FUCK! Krapohead’s the one who made it about politics, not on-field performance, asshole! Now he’s saying that it should be a meritocracy, that is, only about how well he plays! Fucking fuck!!! It practically overloads the mind’s ability to grasp this level of shamelessness! I’m gonna blow a circuit. The whole sentence, omitting an aside about the owners, is: “If the NFL (as well as all professional sports leagues) is to remain a meritocracy, then principled and peaceful political protest… should not be punished.” In other words, “It should be solely about performance, so you should let my client make it about something other than performance.” Un. Fucking. Believable.
Of course, it’s also deeply amusing that a guy with a record of 1-10 would dare to talk about meritocracy in the first place.
BONUS: Krapohead wasn’t cut loose from the SF 49ers. He walked away from his contract with them last year, LOL!
I suspect his lawyer, one Mark Geragos, is thinking, “Well, I’ll take this moron’s money if he wants.”
There’s a legal analysis by Michael McCann at msn.com in the last day or two. (No link, sorry. The Internet is your friend.) Summary: It is, of course, hopeless for the dickhead.
All this makes one think of H. L. Mencken, that man who loved the spectacle of morons being moronic in public. He should be around these days. He’d flense these fucking idiots until they screamed.
Postscriptum: Stats about the imbecile.
From Wikipedia (I’d link to Infogalactic but their stats on him aren’t up to date):
“In 2015, Kaepernick… finished the season with 1,615 yards passing, six passing touchdowns, five interceptions and 256 rushing yards with one rushing touchdown.”
Holy shizznit, seriously? Only one more passing touchdown than interception? Why the fuck is anyone even talking about this guy? Even if you count his rushing touchdown, the story is, “Hire Colin Kaepernick! He’ll get you 7 touchdowns and 5 interceptions!” LOL. Give up, you pathetic loser.
From the useful site https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/K/KaepCo00.htm, his career regular-season record was 28-30, so he’s a proven NON-winner. But the career record masks the deterioration over time: In the 2014 season his record was 8-8. In the 2015 season, it was 2-6. In 2016… wait for it… 1-10.
Ugh. Untouchable. In his three most recent years, he’s 11-24. So his winning percentage is 11/(11+24) = 31.4%. He’s won less than a third of his games! And his most recent year, less than a tenth of them! Hire Colin Krapohead, and YOU can have the privilege of a quarterback who wins 1/11 = nine percent of his games. And he’s saying coaches don’t want to hire him because politics or racism or whatever. Unreal. The delusionality is strong in this one.
Bye, Krapohead. It was not nice knowing you.
