    We've had discussions about Kaepernick before, but I was not able to pull up our prior discussions this morning.

    Since Nike started their ad campaign, the value of the company has gone up $6 billion.

    Two teams so far (the Patriots and the Raiders) apparently are interested in talking to him, but this morning's surprise was the San Francisco 49ers, who just lost their starting quarterback:

    Hopefully he gets serious consideration. The corrupt collusion of ownership is pathetic. SF is in a progressive blue state so anything is possible.

    Best of luck to him.

    The Chicago Bears could use a fine quarterback, that team always ends up with second rate QB's, mainly because of McCaskey ownership. Before lousy QB Trubiski, the had Jay Cutler, another lousy QB who was paid well and performed poorly.

    I happen to think Nike made a smart business decision, it'll surely help Kaepernick land more endorsements.

    All the people upset about Kaepernick should be watching the Viet Nam series on public tv showing how the USA CITIZENS were lied to allowing the build and subsequent death of 55000 USA soldiers. And there is more horrible results. I went with friends to visit their buddy at the Bethesda Naval Hospital in the fall of 1969. The buddy was on the eighth floor. He was strung up with bolts through his ankles attached to cables holding his burnt almost bare bone legs in the air. Two floors of guys like this. All because of liars waving the flag.
