NFL Commissioner Blasts Kaepernick Over Refusal of ‘Incredible Opportunity’

Kaepernick is all out of timeouts.

Somehow, for some reason, the sports world is not done talking about Colin Kaepernick.

The second string quarterback has been out of the NFL since the end of the season in which he made popular the offensive anthem-kneeling protest that caused an uproar among patriotic Americans everywhere.

Now, in what is surely an attempt at maintaining his high level of pop culture clout, Kaepernick is attempting to shame the NFL by portray himself as field-ready through a series of social media stunts and a “workout” that turned out to be nothing more than another public relations fiasco.

The league’s Commissioner has issued a statement today that puts all of Kaepernick’s malarky to rest, maybe for good.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says that the league has “moved on” from Colin Kaepernick, and claimed that the anthem protester “chose” not to take an “incredible opportunity.”

Goodell made the comments at a Wednesday press conference following the league’s quarterly ownership meeting.

“I haven’t thought about this in a few weeks,” Goodell explained to reporters. “This was, as I’ve said to you before, about creating an opportunity. Which Colin’s representatives came out in early October [with a list of false narratives about Kaepernick], and we created that opportunity. It was a unique opportunity, incredible opportunity, and he chose not to take it. I understand that. And, you know, we’ve moved on.”

If that isn’t the final whistle on Kaepernick, we don’t know what is.
