I don't get it. I don't hate Kaepernick because he takes a knee during the National Anthem. I hate him for losing the 49ers first Superbowl.

Jebus, this whole thing is so stupid.

As I'm sure has been pointed out eleventy billion times, they spelled his name wrong on the graphic.
Makes me wonder if Spike got trolled. I hope so.

I hate that asshole because he torched the Packers' defense.  Wanna kneel during the anthem?  Go right ahead, IDGAF.

Whatever happened to the guy who played for Harbaugh?
Kap has sucked so bad the last few years it's easy to forget that he briefly seemed like the next big thing. Did Kap lose interest? did the league figure him out? Were the niner coaches incompetent? All of the above and more?

IDGAF about the kneeling but the Kap games I've seen the last few years scream vet minimum as a reclamation project, not starter money.

Spike Lee deserves a lifetime of trolling for trying to get Quentin Tarantino blacklisted from the business.

As I noted before, Spike, interestingly enough, has a new show coming out in the fall...I'm sure it's just a coincidence.

"I Did Not Organize And Set Up This Protest. However I Still Support My Brother And His Stance On The Injustices In The USA," Lee tweeted

What's with the capitalization? Is that a movie title? Because that movie would suck.

Colin Kaepernick's retirement shiatshow has more crybagging and fireworks than Brett Favre's did. I hope it lasts as long

And if you can't be an athlete, be an athletic supporter.

I'm surprised Spike still talks about sports after what Reggie Miller did to him throughout the mid-90s.

And the f I care about Kapernick and Spike Lee is nil.  Some will call me a racist for saying that, but I really am not.  I say that because both of them are fighting to remain relevant when they were no longer able to make it in their chosen careers.

Also there is absolutely nothing racist about not wanting to hire a crappy quarterback who likes to make political stands to distract from him losing the ability to play, regardless of the race.  He does have the ability to be a third string QB, but the baggage that he carries with him is not worth the trouble.  Football teams want to play football and sell merchandise.  That is what they do.

Good coach went to Michigan.  Maybe.  Yes.  Oh hell yes!

It's a buddy movie. Starring Wil Ferrel and Zac Efron. It happens during a heist set at Christmas time at a LGBTQ mosque in rural Arkansas.

fark Kaepernik and fark anyone who supports him.

And God bless the First Amendment for allowing that idiot to out himself.
 
2017-08-09 01:16:51 AM  
Here's a clue for Spike: Owners aren't signing him because they don't like to be booed in their own stadiums.
 
2017-08-09 02:31:04 AM  
I don't dislike Spike but this is a beg for relevance.
 
2017-08-09 05:52:49 AM  
His movies suck.
 
2017-08-09 07:24:22 AM  
Spike gave out the home address of someone he didn't agree with.  The wrong address.  fark him.

Kaep sucks - just the way it is

That's what it's about for sure.


* (he fits in slightly above Jason Campbell because of his initial success - but it looks like Kaep won't last as long).

Any lost revenue (angry ticket holders who "will never watch a game again") would be made up for with jersey sales (the streets would be crawling with the all black version of the ravens jersey w/ his name and number on the back if he would have signed there).

It's not about money for sure.

The owners don't want him - and its for more than this particular political point. As the owners in the NFL are threatened by their employees - they may be worried that Colin's next kneeling will be in support of NFL Vet health care or weed v opiates or CTE or garunteed contracts or .....

A couple of facts and a little speculation

Hey! There's worse directors than Spike Lee still making movies.
 
2017-08-09 08:14:06 AM  
I will never support some anti-American American asshole who disrespects our national anthem . He should live in Iraq.

There are?  Uwe retired.

Spike jumping around like a jackass on speed makes Knicks games nearly watchable.
 
2017-08-09 09:34:02 AM  
I'm totally fine with Colin Kaepernick, although I think that if he'd gone about his protest a little differently that it may have earned him less ire and more respect --- ultimately we should recognize that he had good intentions. Spike Lee on the other hand is just a scumbag.

Ummm.  You entered into evidence no facts.  You entered an opinion widely held and lots of speculation.

Yes, THAT'S what makes Knicks games unwatchable.

I see you, James Dolan.

It Is A Subtle Reminder That Cops Are Dealing Out Capital Punishment Without A Conviction Or Even A Crime Being Committed.

First Superbowl? What about the 5 they won?
