Colin Kaepernick has reportedly filed a grievance towards the NFL. The previous 49ers quarterback says the league’s house owners conspired to maintain him out of the group due to his protests.
The grievance allegedly says the house owners “colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick’s management and advocacy for equality and social justice.”
Final week, a CBS Sports activities reporter clarified his televised report saying quarterback Colin Kaepernick informed him he would stand in the course of the nationwide anthem if he performed within the NFL once more, saying he did not truly talk about the difficulty with the participant once they spoke.
Jason La Canfora stated in a collection of tweets on Sunday that he was relaying earlier reporting about Kaepernick and didn’t ask whether or not the previous San Francisco 49ers quarterback would sit or stand in the course of the anthem when he spoke about his interview with the participant throughout a pregame present.
The reversal got here after anchor James Brown requested La Canfora on “The NFL Immediately” : “And kneeling, he stated?”
La Canfora responded: “He is not planning on kneeling. He will donate all his jersey gross sales and he is planning on standing for the anthem if given the chance, J.B.”
After La Canfora backed off his earlier report, Kaepernick tweeted: “A lie will get midway around the globe earlier than the reality has an opportunity to get its pants on,” attributing the quote to Winston Churchill despite the fact that some students have stated the quote was not stated by the previous British prime minister.
