Spike Lee on Colin Kaepernick: "It's Mad Fishy He Hasn't Been Signed Yet"
Five years ago, Colin Kaepernick was playing in the Super Bowl, as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. Today, he’s a free agent struggling to sign with a team.
What happened? Well, a lot of things happened. One, for whatever reason, Kaepernick’s quarterback play became way more erratic. And, two, Kaepernick became more socially aware. He started kneeling during the national anthem before NFL games — something he did to bring attention to police brutality against black Americans.
So the question remains: why can’t Kaepernick get a starting job? Is it because of the first option or the second?
Yesterday, Lee posted a selfie with Kaepernick on his IG. Lee wrote a comment, where he says he thinks it’s “mad fishy” that Kap hasn’t signed with a team yet.
Here’s the post, with the full caption:
Just Had Brunch With My Brother Colin @Kaepernick7 . How Is It That There Are 32 NFL Teams And Kap Is Still A Free Agent? WTF. Smells MAD Fishy To Me,Stinks To The High Heavens. The New York J-E-T-S Need A Quarterback. Who Is The J-E-T-S Quarterback? Is My Man Joe Willie Namath Coming Back? Crazy Times We Live In. The Question Remains What Owner And GM Is Going To Step Up And Sign Colin So Their Team Has A Better Chance To WIN? What Crime Has Colin Committed? Look At The QB’s Of All 32 Teams. This Is Some Straight Up Shenanigans,Subterfuge, Skullduggery And BS. Ya-Dig? Sho-Nuff. By Any Means Necessary. And Dat’s Da NoFunLeague Truth,Ruth.
Interesting caption from Lee. What do you think? Agree?
