Where Colin Kaepernick landed on this ESPN Top Ten list will make you scratch your head
ESPN is at it again.
They constantly try to inject politics into sports and they praise national anthem kneeler Colin Kaepernick every chance they can get.
But who Colin Kaepernick beat out on this top ten list will make you shake your head in disgust.
ESPN is still trying to drum up controversy over the national anthem protesters.
The NFL ratings dropped by a whopping 10 percent last season due to patriotic fans tuning out.
And advertisers revolted by demanding the league make up for the money they wasted on an audience that wasn’t there.
This led to the league attempting to tamp down on players’ protests.
Now, ESPN released a list of “Top 100 QBs, coaches, issues and decision-makers shaping the NFL.”
Despite being out of the league for two seasons, Colin Kaepernick landed at number 10.
Kaepernick was ahead of the likes of Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick, and even NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

At this point, unjust as it might be, it’s hard to imagine Kaepernick ever playing in the NFL again. But his pending collusion case against the league could have huge impact if successful, and he remains the face of the significant race-related issues with which the NFL continues to wrestle.
Also on the list was Kaepernick’s anthem-protesting pal, Eric Reid, a Safety for the Carolina Panthers.
Kaepernick and Reid both have pending lawsuits against the league for teams colluding by not signing either player.
ESPN also placed “Becoming more diverse” at 39th on the list, complaining that there aren’t enough African-American coaches in the league.
New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady was noticeably absent from ESPN’s list.
This just goes to show that ESPN is the sports equivalent of CNN’s Fake News.
