The NFL is a show, and this player isn't being 'cast' because he's making his own show

The 2017 NFL season should be very interesting, but not because of anything happening on the field.  The league is now entering its second season under racial scrutiny, thanks to Colin Kaepernick's protests of "The Star Spangled Banner" last year.

The NAACP has argued that the former San Francisco quarterback is not being drafted due to the National Football League's inherent racism, although 70 percent of NFL players are black, and Kaepernick had a contract for $129 million.

Jeffy Fisher vehemently declared that the reason Kaepernick isn't getting picked up by any teams is because "he sucks." But he also pointed to his tendency to pull focus off the main players in the team despite his reported poor work ethic.

He wondered why commissioner Robert Goodell hasn't just sat the former 49ers quarterback down and advised him to just stand for the National Anthem and pick up his check. "Be part of the show," Jeffy advised. "You can be your own show outside of the game."

To see more from Jeffy, visit his channel on TheBlaze and listen live to “The Jeff Fisher Show” Saturdays 9 a.m.–noon ET, only on TheBlaze Radio Network.
