    Default Report: NFL Execs 'Genuinely Hate' Protesting Kaepernick

    NFL teams "genuinely hate" former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick – one executive calling him "an embarrassment to football" – a GM told Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman.

    "He can still play at a high level – the problem is three things are happening with him," the source reportedly said. "First, some teams genuinely believe that he can't play. They think he's shot. I'd put that number around 20 percent.

    "Second, some teams fear the backlash from fans after getting him. They think there might be protests or [President Donald] Trump will tweet about the team. I'd say that number is around 10 percent. Then there's another 10 percent that has a mix of those feelings.

    "Third, the rest genuinely hate him and can't stand what he did [kneeling for the national anthem]."

From all the noise of the past fall, the "silence is deafening" now, Freeman wrote.

    "They want nothing to do with him," the source told Freeman. "They won't move on. They think showing no interest is a form of punishment. I think some teams also want to use Kaepernick as a cautionary tale to stop other players in the future from doing what he did."

    Couldn't have hated him that much.
    They let him carry on his crap and never said a word

    They didn't hate what he was doing enough to take a position and point out that his actions dont align with their organization.
    They simply sat back and let the circus continue mostly at their own peril as viewership dropped as well as ad revenue.

    How about the Dallas Cowboys demonstration of respect for the murdered police officers. The NFL crapped all over that trtibute while allowing this moron Kaepernick to go about his merry way censured. I do miss football in the fall. Oh well, I don't go to Jane Fonda movies either.

    Whether NFL genuinely hate Kaepernick or not, it matters not, because NFL execs also know that there's no such thing as bad publicity.
