    Kaepernick is what we refer to back home as a "mark ass".

    There's a lot to digest here but I'll give it a try.

    I don't trust the NYFL but that doesn't mean that I have to trust CK. They both suck.

    1. Isn't it possible that the reason CK wanted the media around was so he could get his message across?

    2. What's the big deal? The NYFL calls the shots don't they? They don't want him playing or he'd be playing. I don't think he's really interested in playing anyway.

    3. If it's true that he still has the arm strength to be a backup he can join a long list of QB's who are in the same boat and are not NYFL backups.

    If I'm an owner of an NYFL team I wouldn't want him either. I doubt that any owner wants the distraction that comes along with him. He's far more of a distraction than an NYFL QB.

    Technically, this was supposed to be his chance to show his football stuff. Personally, I'd like it if some team took him in and then dumped him later. That would be great to watch

    I'm stunned that any fan anywhere would want him. He supports killing police officers.

    I don’t see it, and he has a couple lawyers in the feed that don’t see it either. Some agree with Wallach or think it’s ambiguous. Some have said waiving future claims isn’t even a legal possibility, at least not in GA.

    Seems pretty straight forward and related to the workout.

    The focus by Wallach seems to be on the “indirectly” part though it says “to the workout.” Some people interpret that to mean it’s waiving essentially everything including another collusion case as that would I guess fall under “indirectly related to the workout.”

    I would think:

    Directly= break an ankle while running in workout- waived
    Indirectly= slip in shower afterward- waived
    Neither= Collusion not related to workout- not waived

    How would a later lawsuit for collusion unrelated to the workout here be waived?

    I know our legal system has issues but if this amounts to a blanket waiver for future claims then we’re in bigger trouble than I thought. It would mean words don’t mean much of anything.

    The guy is a fraud and yet people fall for his BS its sad and it literally has nothing to do with all 32 teams "shunning" him.

    1. He opted out of his contract, he wasn't cut. He was unhappy that he got benched, because his play was terrible.
    2. He refused to take back up QB market rate
    3. Baltimore, after all of the BS started, talked to him, and his girlfriend sent out a tweet or whatever on social media comparing the Ravens owner to a plantation slave owner.
    4. If football meant that much to him he would of played in the CFL
    5. He only wanted the "media" there so he could put this in some documentary, he is doing about his "injustice".
    6. He has no interest in playing football or holding a clipboard.
    7. He wasn't anything more than a journeyman/backup based on his play three years ago. I doubt its improved.

    He knows he can get rich playing the "victim" and given the demographics of the league is a comical stance to take.

    So Florio's had to walk back from his position, now that the facts are out.


    Will that change the minds of any here? Probably not. But even though Florio is still playing the "Waiver = bad" card, albeit far less stridently than before, he has seen a little bit of the light.

    To anyone who's wondering why this guy still can't get a private workout, you can add this to the file:
