Colin Kaepernick Files Grievance Against NFL Owners For Collusion To Keep Him From Playing!

Colin Kaepernick will not stand for this!

The former San Francisco 49ers player has filed a grievance against NFL owners, claiming they colluded to keep him from playing this season.

According to a court filing obtained by ABC News, the athlete's agent has reached out to all 32 teams in the league to note his availability, but apparently has been avoided like the plague!

The 29-year-old, who hired attorney Mark Geragos instead of going through the NFL Players Association, believes his unemployment stems from his National Anthem protest last season, which led to Kaepernick severing his contract with the 49ers in March.

While the free-agent QB isn't in the league this season, his presence has taken over — players all across the NFL have been kneeling before games, sparking criticism from fans and controversy maven President Trump.

Despite the uprising he caused, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell denied in June that Kaepernick had been blackballed by owners. Instead, the commissioner postulated that Kap wasn't picked up by a team because there are more talented players out there!

Steph Curry Thinks Colin Kaepernick Should've Been 'Front And Center' On Sports Illustrated's Panned 'Sports United' Cover!

no title

You don't have to tell Stephen Curry who's missing in the latest Sports Illustrated cover.

The Golden State Warriors point guard was displayed front and center on the mag's "Sports United" issue, which features 10 sports figures linking arms in a digitally-created cover.

The cover, which showed Curry arm-in-arm with LeBron James and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, comes a week after the NBA star had his invitation to the White House rescinded by Donald Trump.

But if you ask Curry, SI made a huge mistake by omitting one athlete from the group: former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who kicked off the National Anthem protest last year way before it became a nationwide issue.

Echoing the sentiments of social media, Curry finds it "terrible" that the mag didn't feature the OG kneeler in an issue that's supposedly all about social justice in sports.

In an interview recorded by ESPN NBA reporter Chris Haynes, Curry said:

Late Night Slams 'Brain Damaged' Donald Trump Harder Than Ever Over NFL Protest Comments!

no title

OMG, everyone is against Donald Trump on this one!

In case you hadn't heard the POTUS is actually calling for the firing of peaceful protesters now, specifically the NFL players protesting police brutality against African Americans.

Can't quite condemn neo-Nazis, overwhelmingly condemns black protesters… Hmm…

Just like tons of pro athletes, celebs, and politicians, we were offended by Trump's comments. Thankfully no late night shows were on hiatus — because across the board hosts really took him to task!

Early on, Stephen Colbert points out how Drumpf is defending the flag while he himself dishonors it CONSTANTLY! Oh, he might also mention the President could have some brain damage himself…

Donald Trump VS The NFL — Everything You Need To Know!

no title

What could the President of the United States of America possibly have to gain by fighting with the NFL??

Well, when you're talking about Donald Trump, there actually are a couple good reasons. (And by "good" we mean horrific.)

Let's rewind.

Related: Like John Oliver Did Last Night For Megyn Kelly — OUCH!

On Friday night, Trump was holding a rally in Alabama — yes, our sitting president who has been in office less than a year regularly holds campaign-style rallies to inflate his ego — in which he made some inflammatory remarks about protesting football players.

In short, he said NFL owners should fire the players who kneel during the National Anthem. And he said it in the crudest way:

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He's fired. He's fired!'"

Yep. Our president used an expletive in a public speech attacking private citizens who are peacefully protesting.

Though he didn't mention Colin Kaepernick by name, he is at the vanguard of this controversy. So his mom responded to the "son of a bitch" comment with an AMAZING quip:

Bob Costas Perfectly Explained The NFL Donald Trump Controversy & Twitter Is So Here For It!

Filed under: ZportzPolitikDonald TrumpFootballNFLNewsViral: NewsControversy

Bob Costas

Spot on.

Veteran NBC sports broadcaster Bob Costas just perfectly explained the NFL and Donald Trump controversy — and we're urging you to give it a listen!

In the powerful segment, Costas smartly said patriotism is about more than our brave military:

"Martin Luther King was a patriot. Susan B Anthony was a patriot. Dissidents are patriots. Schoolteachers and social workers are patriots … Patriotism comes in many forms and what has happened is it's been conflated with a bumper-style kind of flag-waving and with the military only so that people cannot see that in his own way Colin Kaepernick, however imperfectly, is doing a patriotic thing. And so too are some of these other players."

It's no longer just athletes taking a knee against racial injustice.

When Pharrell Williams performed at a charity concert in Charlottesville, no knees were spared in showing solidarity with the protesting NFL players who have started kneeling during the national anthem.

The Happy singer got down on not one, but two knees during his set at Dave Matthews' Concert for Charlottesville: An Evening of Music and Unity on Sunday night, which was held in the wake of last month's deadly white supremacist protests.

Williams, who hails from Virginia, assured that protests of this sort were what America was all about. He planted both knees on the stage, telling the crowd:

Donald Trump Proves — Again — That He Truly Is A World-Class Asshole

no title

It's almost as if we should have known exactly what we were getting when we elected an emotionally-stunted, Cheeto-tinted whiny baby to the White House

Sometime in the last few hours, mad that the team didn't want to come to the White House to worship him like so many of his mindless followers, Donald Trump officially disinvited Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors from coming for their traditional meet-and-greet ceremony earned after winning the NBA Championship!

HOW. FUCKING. PETTY!!!!

Trump just officially dis-invited star Steph Curry and the team, citing that they'd been so openly critical of him as President, and the Cheeto-in-Chief also included a message:
