    Report: NFL's Seahawks Cancel Kaepernick Workout Over His National Anthem Kneeling

    On Thursday, it was reported that the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks canceled a workout for former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick because he refused to stop kneeling for the national anthem:

    Seventeen minutes later, that report was mildly disputed:

    As was reported last October, the NFL admitted that the controversy over kneeling for the national anthem caused it to lose business. CNS News reported in late September:

    Operators of two of the largest U.S. ticket marketplaces say they are seeing declines in orders for NFL games amid festering controversy over the national anthem. NFL ticket sales at TickPick slumped 17.9 percent this week compared with the prior week, their steepest decline since 2014, while sales at TicketCity plunged 31 percent. For pro football games in September, ticket sales at TicketCity are down 16 percent from a year ago.

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Saw that yesterday afternoon. Kaepernik made his own bed. The owners have theirs. $ will prevail.

    I hope that Kaperdick never sets foot on the field of any game for the rest of his life.
    No more splitting Uranium for fun and profit, retirement is cool so far....
