In a strange twist of events Colin Kaepernick, the NFL anthem kneeler wants to subpoena President Trump and Vice President Pence. Apparently, the quarterback and his legal team believe there is some connection between the President, Vice President and the NFL that is causing him to not get a job.
According to The Daily Wire:
Colin Kaepernick’s legal team said Thursday that they plan to subpoena the President and Vice President in their grievance case against the National Football League.
The former 49ers second string quarterback, who left the team after being offered a one year contract and was then shocked when he was not immediately hired by another professional football team anxious for his public relations contributions, is suing the NFL, claiming that team owners conspired to lock him out of a plum QB job because he wouldn’t stand for the national anthem.
At least two NFL owners have admitted that Trump’s comments forced the NFL and team owners to reconsider their approach to the players’ protests, and the NFL suggested that recent changes to its rules regarding player participation in pre-game ceremonies were motivated, in part, by the White House’s public comments on the matter.
But if Kaepernick intends to prove that there was some intricate conspiracy to lock him out of the league, masterminded from the Oval Office, it will take more than innuendo and suggestion. In fact, under the rules of the Federal Arbitration Act, his legal team will have to prove that issuing subpoenas to the Commander-in-Chief and the Vice President will have a specific impact on his case, and that their testimony will be relevant to his cause.
Instead of taking ownership of his actions and his poor play, Kaepernick is looking to blame everyone but himself. This level of selfishness is probably another reason why he doesn’t have a job.
