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.

ESPN writes:

10. Colin Kaepernick, free agent

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.

    Not only is ESPN too far left, but it violates a number of the rules of decency, if not legality. ESPN actively recruits for certain conferences and teams. It then presents talking heads who accuse teams of cheating and present themselves as “moral” judges. It interferes with every game of any kind by demanding TV timeouts, in many cases stopping momentum runs. It fills its programs with talking heads who most viewers could care less about what they say. It uses multiple game announcers, color-men, etc when one would do, and they talk about everything but the game. There are other transgressions but there are too many to talk about. The gist is that ESPN is essentially a corrupt and irrelevant network.

    To NFL & ESPN: The owners are EMPLOYERS. The players are EMPLOYEES. The field is the WORKPLACE. FANS R CUSTOMERS. Respect our flag. Don’t kill the goose that laid the golden egg.

  3. John J says:

    kapper cunt should be ridden out of America on a rail!!

  4. Ernst says:

    The last three years of Kaepernick in the NFL tell the story. Each year his play deteriorated, and finally he was absolutely horrible. Look at the statistics. No way can he make a case to belong in the league.

    • Mac says:

      I totally agree , he wasn’t that good !!!!

      • Mac says:

        They Protest on the field why they’re making millions of dollars 90% of them walked out and don’t do a goddamn thing for the black community they are all hypocrites also no one mentions that he gave money to a cop killing family to flee this country so he wouldn’t get brought to justice

    • Robert Ewing says:

      I dropped ESPN over five years ago. It’s all about money. Get away from this scum, people. Watxh them drown in their own excrement.

  9. Beverly says:

    He is a disgrace to our way of life — God Bless the men who died so we have the right to free speech and that includes vermin like Kaepernick

  10. Gary Dorgay says:

    Colin Kaepernick is an embarrassment to this country…What a poor excuse to use our National Anthem to display why no team wants to sign him…He just is not smart enough to engage another social media event to display his crying…God Bless America!!..I am from Wisconsin…And what a shame that he has Wisconsin ties..

  11. Gregory Sullivan says:

    Mr. Kaepernick should be stripped of his wealth and sent to Cuba (which he admired). There he can eat dog food and play football for 40 dollars a week.

  12. Mike says:

    ESPN should stay out of politics and stay with sports. I met Mr Klapper he is a joke and trouble maker even in college.He got away with a lot of stuff

  13. Orange canoe says:

    ESPN continues on it’s sad march to obscurity.

  14. Mike says:

    Every time I listen to ANY these NFL – NBA players compare themselves to the slaves it reminds me of how poor our education system has become. Do these guys really think the slaves were paid and liove like they do? Mas’er where’s my chains? I’m ready.

  15. Too many good men have died for that flag & what it represents. Anyone that disrespects it & the country is TRASH & should be removed.

  16. Sam says:

    Kapernick is an NFL wannabee who never could cut the.mustard there. Now, with the NFL and ESPN going racial instead of sports and football, I will no longer watch either.
    Hit em where it hurts…pocketbook
    I will now be a full time NHL hockey fan.

      Like what Ann Coulter tweeted out about Trump? Ann Coulter 1-25-19 Tweet:
      Good news for George Herbert Walker Bush: As of today, he is no longer the biggest wimp ever to serve as President of the United States.

      I am losing my faith in Trump . . . used to think he stood up for us, but seems to fold when facing a strong opponent like Pelosi and Putin.

        you understand nothing – Ann Coulter LOL she makes her living sucking Potus off every chance she can

      • gandolf says:

        You sound like a gullible, liberal Demwit. For Trump and the US it is a win/win what he did. The government employees got their paychecks with back pay and Trump could shut the government down again and build the wall as an emergency measure. Noting lost for Trump just a win/win situation.

  18. Robert says:

    Good Bye espn! You obviously didn’t like my first response, so I just shortened it and cut right to the fact.

  19. Jack says:

    The POS is not qualified to carry my cousin’s jock strap! He has never been more than a fourth or fifth string rate quarterback. In fact, I see high school QBs who are more accurate with their passing, quicker on their feet, and can actually take a hit better than him. He is a worthless loser. I have a cousin who was an NFL QB, and is in the NFL Hall of Fame, so I do know a bit about good and bad quarterbacks! Kaepernick cannot play the game, so he protests to draw attention to himself. It isn’t about a cause of racism, it is all about his drawing millions to sit on his worthless ass!

    • Charles Doss says:

      Kap the Protester was a pretty decent QB the first 3 or so yrs in the league, but something happened, and his performance fell waaaay off. Then he let his Afro grow out, and started trying to “be somebody”. I guess he couldn’t understand he no longer performed at a level that the team found acceptable, so he decided to pooch out his bottom lip, and blame everyone but himself for his fall from glory. Happens all the time, Kap, so deal with it. Of all entities, a professional sports team is just about the last I would EVER accuse of sitting a player down because of their race. Look at the makeup of just about all professional sports teams. Looks like to me non whites are well represented.

    • Marcy Johnston says:

      Amen You said it right all the way!!

  20. J. Zurga says:

    I couldn’t read anymore. Disgusting, ESPN. Totally despicable. 😡😡😡😡😡😡

  21. Jack says:

    I have not watched an NFL game since the first time I saw the POS “take a knee” during the National Anthem with no consequences. As a retired Naval Officer who dedicated 42 years of my life to our wonderful Country and would have died for it, nothing is more disgusting to me than to see multi-millionaires protest against the USA . Had he lived in any other Country, he would not have had the opportunity to play a game and make millions! Yet he protests the only Country on earth where he could “earn” millions sitting on his duff for a couple of hours a week for what, 20 weeks max? It is disgusting to me, has always been, will always be. I say deport the SOB to anywhere in Europe or Africa or even Asia and see how quickly he comes running home with his tail between his legs! He is a disgrace to our wonderful Country and for all the principles of equality and self determination!

  22. Mark says:

    ESPN doesn’t know where their viewership is, anymore than Goodell. They are both so in need of acceptance of the Hollywood Crowd but don’t realize that crowd wouldn’t know a football from a from a tapered turd. And no, this is not a duplicate message.

  24. for me he can go to hell,,yes yes to hell

  25. Tracy Lape says:

    Politics have no place in professional sports. I think this all started when Nobama was in office, he couldn’t keep his nose out of sports and on the well being of the country. lm sure there are many people like me who watch sports to forget about politics and the worlds problems for a little while and relax. I don’t need or want all this craziness. It’s Kaepernick now kneeling what will be the next and then the next? Stop it now. I haven’t watched a pro game since he started kneeling. Keep politics out and play ball!

    I voted 3 times did they all count

  27. Gonaes says:

    It’s going to take one hell of a time for the NFL to come back to it’s glory again. And, because of the kneel bending, fisted arm raising of one man, Colin Kaepernick, as the leader of a few other players in the NFL who defied, and dishonored our country it has come to shame. I hope Kaepernick never gets to play another game of football as long as he lives.

  28. Bob says:

    What is the ratio of black and white players in the compared the the population percentage? There might be some disparities there as well as the head coaches, can anyone advise?

  29. dlmstl says:

    Certainly sounds like ESPN is ready to hang the ‘former NFL QB’ label on him. None the less, the MSM will keep him around as long as he’s useful click bait. Come back in 3-5 years and see if he has any relevance. He’ll more than likely end up on the fringes of the race hustling industry garnering speaking engagements with the small old victimhood theme. In the mean time, AA bodies will continue to pile up from coast to coast, like cord wood.

    Sorry for the double post…. I thought it was censored me because I used DICKF KAP. so I changed it ….. but I guess they let it through…..😏

  31. Bill says:

    Just more proof that ESPN is no longer relevant in sports media.

  32. Oompa says:

Then you don’t even have ( I hate to admit it) BEST QB in the league on your list….TOM BRADY 🤮 I DO NOT like the Patriots BUT you have to give Brady the top spot PERIOD…. LIMP ARM Kap can’t not play at his level or even hold his jockstrap (again I hate to admit it🤮) I stopped watching/listening ESPN long ago…. Come clean with your viewers already…. At the beginning of ever show just tell them….Look we are the far left network & as so we will tell you LIES & BRAINWASH you at EVER TURN!!!!! THE TRUTH IS ALWAYS THE BEST THING…..

    Hey, Why is anyone surprised? Anti-Trump, Anti-American, e s p n has lost it’s place among places and organizations that are identifies with capital letters just like n f l as they are now minor league entries in our world. I’ve stopped watching their programs a few years ago, ever before Crapanick. Many of my friends have also. I will never watch athletes who disrespect our Flag. Now , this has gone too far. I will be contacting my cable provider with a request that channels that show animosity against the Flag, the Anthem and the Constitution be removed as I find them offensive. If all these radical, anti-American, Anti-Christian, Anti-heterosexuals can be offended by a Flag , a song, a cross or a damn cake, then I can be just offended by their selfish “My-Stuff Only” attitude. Anyone that wants to join me, please call your cable provider and ask them tp remove offensive material.

    • Wumingren says:

      I stopped reception of all broadcast TV over 10 years ago, so I have not been exposed to the Left’s toxicity other than what seeps in from the broken sewer line that feeds news streams. I can’t threaten to quit since I have quit long ago.

    Kappa nipple sucks

  36. bob clifford says:

    I will no longer be watching ESPN

  37. Larry Woldt says:

    No more NFL for me. I now know that the playoffs are fixed. The fact that the commissioner of the NFL remains brain dead on this issue tells me he cannot deny the fixed games in the NFL the past several years. So sad.

  38. Barbara says:

    ESPN and NFL officials are namby pampys, they are more of the same “fake news” ideologues!! I’m glad the NFL is doing poorly, and they should!! Kissing the butts of players who are a bunch of sheep, as are politicians, is a snowflake attitude. No spines, or other parts in the nether region!!

  39. Will says:

    To expand on the poll question, ESPN has been too leftwing for quite sometime. They’ve been doing it since 2013. And if they continue on this path, we’ll be talking about ESPN in the past tense in due time. Garbage like that is only why I watch live games on ESPN nowadays.

  40. GAYLE L BOC says:

    Wonder why your ratings are tanking? NEVER watch the “commentators” bc of their liberal bias. Kapernick can’t play very well with the “big'” guys. Can’t complete passes…just no good. That’s one reason he isn’t signed AND he can’t stop protesting the country that made him a millionaire. Good riddance!

    • willard weems says:

      Agree 100%, I love football, but quit watching when Kaepernick started the BS of kneeling. As far as this Vet is concerned the only football is college and if they start the BS I will not watch them either!

      • Tim says:

        I would have to agree with you 100% As a US Armed Forces Veteran Retired myself it is z “national disgrace” NOT to stand up and show RESPECT for the USA Flag. I just quit watching NFL after all that. No other professional sport league is doing what the NFL is doing in “kneeling down” during the National Anthem. You said it NFL has no one else to blame but themselves for losing fan support. I like you like college football and if the NCAA allows this won’t be watching that anymore either. Colin Kaepernick didn’t even VOTE so don’t tell me he is going to change society by DISRESPECTFUL behavior to the USA Flag. We put our lives on the line for this fool and he can’t even show RESPECT for the USA Flag. Have NO respect for that.

  41. wliiiaml says:

    ESPN has a sink hole and many there are prime sole’s to be in it. They need to stick to top sport and keep their nose clean.

    The NFL can go to HELL!

      Yeah I have always been an Eagles but only 10 wanted to go to the white house. I quit watching them since the decided to disrespect our flag.

    I would hate to have to stop watching ESPN.

  46. Patrick Henry says:

    Colin Kaepernick is a WORTHLESS POS and nothing more!!! He can NOT land a job in the NFL because he is so RACIST Anti American!!!!!!!! He can NOT even get a job as a Dog Catcher!!!

  47. Sandra Haddock says:

    ESPN is “fake news”! I don’t watch the idiots there anymore and I will only check to see who their advertisers are so I can participate in that boycott. LOL* Most players are either too drunk, too high, involved in domestic violence, so stuck on themselves that the rest of the team they are on doesn’t matter and/or anti-American. They can all jump into the pool I have in my bathroom and I’ll be happy to flush them to where they belong. High paid reprobates, liars, cheaters, and suckers (take that however you want), I’m so done with nfl….today and forever! cnn is “corrupt news network”.

  48. DJ says:

    Exactly why I cancelled ESPN.;Suggest others do the same.

  49. Sandra Haddock says:

    I have always separated polics from the sports I support, but this”k” guy changed all that I for the last 2 years I have not bought season tickets. I found a major hockey team in my city that I am supporting. There is no one who takes a knee, everyone stands for the National Anthem, and the fans have so much energy anr such a good time that I felt like I fit right in at the git-go. I’m more atuned to hockey these days, and I will NEVER pay another dime to the traitors of the nfl. GO IceMen!! MAGA
