    Are NFL camps like slave auctions?



    Beyond that, no one is resurrecting this issue; it is Kaepernick's documentary.

    What you're upset about is not people beating a dead horse, but people running up the score on him and his supporters.

    He’s going to protest that white chocolate isn’t real chocolate now
    He’s a parody of himself now

    Yeah, they are. They care for the reason that they want to bash. People who aren't interested in bashing him aren't particularly interested in this old story any more and have moved on. He can say what he wants, right or wrong, and most people won't care.

    It’s a Netflix special
    If it’s boring nobody will watch it . It’s content . The worst thing that can happen to him is that he becomes irrelevant
    His message will mean nothing if nobody watches

    Did a tree fall in the forest ?
    Yeah that thing

    I agree. What I am saying is that people who don't like him are preventing him from becoming irrelevant. They enjoy bashing him and trying to use him a symbol of something they see as a bigger foe.

    That's not shameless. That's stupid. Also an extra ironic statement coming from one of the most shameless bigots out there.

    The NFL Combine is a crazy situation with little regard for decency or boundaries. I agree with him there, except attendance is voluntary, even if you want to be drafted. Attendance just helps your draft position and wallet size.

    This entire skit looks like someone doing a parody. This special is probably the worst thing ever. It looks like he had total control and it's a massive ego project.

    I watched the entire thing and there is a lot of stuff there that I totally agree with and I have had to deal with....

    But as always, no matter what people will see what they want to see....
