  1. Seems there are more that feel that it's political. I don't agree 100% with the article but I share some similar views. https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/redskins/the-nfl-has-effectively-blackballed-colin-kaepernick/2017/03/23/d0b754d6-0fd1-11e7-ab07-07d9f521f6b5_story.html
  2. This is what makes me think something is up. I can't imagine he actually thought he would get more with another team.
  3. Seriously? I don't think there's a conspiracy. All I said is that it wouldn't surprise me because Trump is a goofball and does a lot of odd things. I have considered the other factors and I know about the money. I know that if he is asking for that much money team's aren't going to sign him.
  4. I agree that it would make sense he wants that kind of money. I'm not sure his exact reasons on leaving the Niners but it wouldn't surprise me that he wanted out for other reasons than money.
  5. Why am I not rational? I never once said that my opinions are fact. I said it wouldn't surprise me. That doesn't mean I think that's happening. What the hell is going on here? I post my opinion and everyone thinks I'm treating as a fact. I don't know what's going on for sure and you guys may be completely right.
  6. I have no agenda. Why do care so much what my opinion is and why do you feel the need to change it? I don't know if my my opinion is right, it's just what I think is going on right now. I could be wrong I'm perfectly fine with it. You have your opinion too and that doesn't mean you're right. You don't know any more than I do so I'm not sure why you feel you're so right that you need to change my mind. Who cares? I have my thoughts on it and you have yours. You ask me a question and I answered it. I bring up the other QBs because it's just an example that there are tons of really bad QBs out there that get contracts and play for a long time. You know there are other bad QBs that have gotten contracts more than Geno and EJ too. This means that if we find out that Kaep isn't looking for starter money then there's another reason why teams aren't signing him. We won't know for sure until more details come out.
  7. Lets not act like we have any idea what these teams are actually thinking. I don't know. As far as I know Trump has made threats to teams if they sign him. I doubt that's true but it wouldn't surprise me if the goofball actually did.
  8. Well, Trump did say he'd have something to say to the team that does end up signing him.
  9. That's because I honestly think that politics are the main reason. It's just my opinion that I've gathered from listening to people on the radio that report on the NFL. I've heard multiple people say that it most certainly has to do with politics. I also agree there are other factors as well.
  10. Of course there are more factors. I never said there weren't other factors but I see too many people saying that politics are not a factor when that's just not true.
  11. Most likely no. I think he's asking more and should be asking more since he's a better QB than they are. I don't know if he's asking for a reasonable contract though.
  12. No. My point was that he's most likely going to be willing to take a lot less money than what everyone thinks he's asking for but teams probably aren't show as much interest in him yet because of stupid politics.
  13. Those were the rumors. I was glad he didn't at the time. I'm not so sure at the moment now but they already don't have a lot of draft picks.
  14. To be fair, I don't think they planned on doing better than Jay through FA. I'm pretty sure the goal is to fix that position through the draft only.
  15. I wasn't saying they could do what the Cubs are doing but the Browns are using a similar strategy that's used in baseball. They just showed it when they made that Osweiler move.
