I have been listening to the Reasonable Doubt podcast in recent months....it is Adam Carolla and Mark Geragos. On the recent episode which was released on 11/16/19 which was Saturday but recorded on Friday, Geragos who is Kaepernicks attorney referred to something unexpected taking place....even laughing saying if you are listening to this on Sunday, you will know what I am talking about. I can only assume he is talking about pulling out of workout which suggests their stunt was planned days before Saturday.


Yes, that was apparent at the time. They had everything set up and ready to go. I just don't understand why any competent advisor associated with Kaepernick would tell him that this was a good idea. My cynical side suspects that this was set up to be a scene from the future movie, The Colin Kaepernick Story. This is the scene where Our Hero triumphantly flips off the NFL and holds a workout where he reveals his passing superpowers for all to see. But of course the evil NFL still doesn't sign him. I realize that this is so cynical as to be comical, but it seems like the people in the Kaepernick camp are not thinking clearly.

I guess part of my reaction to this is colored by the fact that I've had any number of employment clients who got into these sorts of paranoid delusions. None of them were in the same ballpark as Kaepernick in terms of salary or fame, of course. But they had a mindset that seems similar to what I'm seeing from Kaepernick -- a weird mix of paranoia and self-importance. I've had to sit these people down for long talks. In a couple cases, I had to tell them to find another lawyer, because I could never give them the vindication that they wanted. Even if we won the case, it wouldn't be good enough for them.


I am skeptical of anything that Mark Geragos says about anything, but he is claiming that 2 teams are very interested in signing Kaepernick.....sounded like one was the Panthers.

I saw that. It would be interesting if someone gave him an offer. We’ll see whether it happens, what they pay him, and how it goes. Maybe the naysayers like me will be proven wrong.

doesn't look like Kaep improved with those clips. He's still late on his passes. He never had trouble with the deep ball. so that's nothing new.

stephen A was right.. he doesn't want to play.. He wants attention.

He's an amazing athlete. but never adapted. defenses load the box on him..blitz him.. and he can't make the right reads.

receivers on both sides.. good lord.

I'm a niners fan.. I wanted so bad for him to do well.. such a let down.

Per Adam Schefter:

Quote:
In the week since Colin Kaepernick worked out for seven NFL teams at Charles R. Drew High School in Riverdale, Georgia, no teams have reached out to work him out, visit with him or sign him, league sources told ESPN.

It also should be noted that Kap and Nike already had plans to release a signature shoe next month just in time for Christmas. I wonder if his choice of words to NFL teams to "Stop Running" will be part of the ad campaign.

I'm not sure that "Stop Running" is the slogan you want for an athletic shoe.

Staying relevant, name recognition. He's getting commercials and who know what else because of his name.

I don't know if this is a creditable site.

^^^^

No, I don't think that sites like that are credible. They don't claim to have any actual information. They're just estimating based on reported salaries and endorsement deals, then speculating about other income. They cannot account for outflows, which range from taxes to family to women to just plain waste.

On a separate note, Kaepernick's silly workout actually may have resulted in a contract with an NFL team. The Redskins signed one of the workout receivers.

I saw Johnny Manziel was getting divorced or at least that was the headline of the article. It made me think isn't Manziel the best piece of evidence against claims that Kaepernick's lack of interest is race based? Manziel has tried to get another NFL opportunity for years, but owners do not think the talent warrants the drama that comes with him.

Eh, Kaepernick had success at one point in his NFL career. Manziel didn’t. I don’t think anyone in the NFL thinks that Manziel can actually play quarterback at the NFL level. At least a few people in the NFL think that Kaepernick can.
