NFL Invites Colin Kaepernick To Meet With Roger Goodell

One of the most hated people in America and destroyer of our National Pride towards the National Football League is the unemployed crybaby social justice warring Kaepernick who hasn’t got the nerve to talk to the NFL commissioner without an attorney present.

Apparently when he isn’t crying about how oppressed blacks are in America and how bad cops are, he’s hiding under a desk somewhere too afraid to make a move without a mediator holding his hand.

I for one would like to thank Krapernick for exposing the hypocrisy and criminal activity that has been long overlooked and covered up by the league.

I would especially like to thank America for taking a stand in defense of our country who made it very clear that our National Anthem means more to us than the NFL ever will.

#BoycottTheNFL has driven our collective voice home and to be honest we really don’t give a rat’s backside what Kaepernick or Goodell have to say anyway.

Daily Caller reports:

Colin Kaepernick has reportedly been invited to meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, but the meeting doesn’t sound like it’s going to happen.

ESPN broke the story of the potential meeting Wednesday. However, there are some obstacles in the way. Most notably is the fact the NFL won’t allegedly allow Kaepernick to have a mediator in the the meeting, according to a statement his attorney Mark Geragos gave to ABC news. This could cause the quarterback to not attend the meeting.

The NFL isn’t lying down after Kaepernick reportedly backed out, and a spokesman told ESPN, “Mr. Geragos’ statement alone violates the collective bargaining agreement, breaking the confidentiality of the grievance process. So he can save his lecture on PR stunts. The invitation remains open.”

Kaepernick hasn’t played a snap of professional football since leaving the San Francisco 49ers, and his options don’t look great. He set the league on fire in the 2016 preseason when he refused to stand during the national anthem, and it will likely result in him never playing professional football again.

League spokesman: Invitation to Colin Kaepernick ‘isn’t about a mediator’

The NFL has invited Colin Kaepernick to attend a one-on-one meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell, a league spokesman told ESPN’s Jim Trotter, but the two sides have offered conflicting comments on whether the free-agent quarterback has responded to the invitation.

Kaepernick attorney Mark Geragos told ABC News they “responded immediately that Colin would be happy to attend” but that the meeting fell through when the league rejected a request for a mediator to be present.

Troy Vincent, the NFL’s executive vice president of football operations, texted Kaepernick on Oct. 31 to update him on the ongoing talks about social issues between players and owners, league spokesman Joe Lockhart told Trotter on Tuesday.

At the end of the text message, Vincent extended the invitation for Kaepernick to meet with Goodell, according to Lockhart, who said the league has not heard back from the former San Francisco 49ers star.

 

Geragos disputed the notion that Kaepernick did not respond.

“We responded immediately that Colin would be happy to attend,” Geragos said in a statement provided to ABC News. “Because of the grievance we asked that a mediator be present. A mediator also would ensure that the discussions were productive and confidential and not used as a PR stunt or prop by the league. Colin’s proposal was rejected.”

Lockhart fired back after that claim, telling Trotter: “Mr. Geragos’ statement alone violates the collective bargaining agreement, breaking the confidentiality of the grievance process. So he can save his lecture on PR stunts. The invitation remains open.”
