Colin Kaepernick is coming for The NFL Owners!! 👀👀👀



Kap is making moves!


Sunday morning, a few reports made headlines that Colin Kaepernick filed a grievance under the NFL's collective bargaining agreement (CBA) for collusion against all of the owners in the NFL. Colin Kaepernick is being represented by the high profiled lawyer Mark Geragos, the attorney who has represented such big named clients as Michael Jackson and Chris Brown.


“Colin Kaepernick’s goal has always been, and remains, to simply be treated fairly by the league he performed at the highest level for and to return to the football playing field,” Geragos said.

"If the NFL (as well as all professional sports leagues) is to remain a meritocracy, then principled and peaceful political protest--which the owners themselves made great theater imitating weeks ago--should not be punished and athletes should not be denied employment based on partisan political provocation by the Executive Branch of our government." 



The union (NFLPA) also went on to express their intentions to support and ability to assist Kaepernick "as we do all players."

"We first learned through media reports today that Mr. Kaepernick filed a grievance claiming collusion through our arbitration system and is represented by his own counsel," read a statement from the NFLPA union. "We learned that the NFL was informed of his intention to file this grievance before today."



Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the San Fransico 49ers, expecting to sign with any other team in the league. None..... The quarterback who threw 16 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions in 12 games last year, could not find a spot with any team despite his agent reaching out to all 32 teams to express his availability.

The entirety of this situation came in midst of Kaepernick taking a knee during the national anthem, protesting against racial inequality and police brutality against minorities in the United States.

1. What is a typical day/week like for you?

My days/weeks have been unpredictable for years since I left engineering for good. But recently, I've been working part time wiring/rewiring houses and businesses with a couple family electrical companies, then I hit the gym (at least 5 days a week), then I try to relax in the evenings. Those long days at work and the gym can be pretty exhausting! I bowl with my brothers and my cousin in a league on Tuesday nights, then we grab a few beers at the local fire hall afterwards. Thursday and Sunday nights I blow off steam, laugh, and drink beer at a local brewery with some of my very best friends. I DJ almost every Friday night and occasionally on Saturday nights. I'm looking forward to getting my band up an running so I can add rehearsal and performances to my weekly agenda!
