Stu: Colin Kaepernick isn’t a strong enough player for his incendiary politics to be overlooked

NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who famously refused to stand for the National Anthem in protest of cop shootings, has made headlines again for his controversial politics.

After a Minnesota police officer was acquitted of manslaughter for shooting Philando Castile, Kaepernick apparently took to Twitter to express his anger at the ruling. He tweeted two pictures of six-point stars side by side, one reading “Runaway Slave Patrol” and one with the familiar “Police Officer.” The tweet said, “A system that perpetually condones the killing of people, without consequence, doesn't need to be revised, it needs to be dismantled!”

On “Pat & Stu,” the guys discussed Kaepernick’s waning career, which isn’t strong enough to overcome his incendiary political posts.

“People will overlook this type of nonsense for Peyton Manning,” Stu Burguiere said. “But he’s not [Peyton Manning].” People won’t invest in a so-so football player who is also drawing backlash for his political views, Stu asserted.

Another thing that people forget is how aggressive Kaepernick has been while speaking against cops. “It’s not just the kneeling for the National Anthem; it’s the wearing the socks with ‘cops are pigs’ on them,” Stu said.
