ESPN’s sub-site The Undefeated asked NFL fans Thursday morning if they’d boycott the NFL over Colin Kaepernick remaining unsigned.

The Undefeated, which describes itself as a “platform for exploring the intersections of race, sports and culture,” tweeted out the question for fans everywhere, and attached a photo of Kaepernick rocking an afro.

The tweet reads, “If @Kaepernick7 doesn’t get signed by the beginning of the season, how seriously will you consider boycotting the NFL?”

Will I be boycotting? No chance, but I might permanently stop reading ESPN or any of the sub-sites if this Kaepernick garbage doesn’t come it an end.

It’s very simple. He’s not on an NFL roster because he’s not overly talented and he can’t keep his mouth shut. He chose to disrespect America, and now he is living with the consequences. Why can’t ESPN understand this simple fact? The NFL and its owners don’t owe this washed up quarterback anything.

It probably doesn’t also help that his girlfriend Nessa tweeted out a photo comparing the Baltimore Ravens owner to a slave owner and Ray Lewis to a slave.

Anybody who thinks Kaepernick is getting a job in the NFL ever again is delusional, and the only person he has to blame is himself.
