Colin Kaepernick’s legacy extends beyond football. His peaceful protest during the national anthem ignited a nationwide conversation about racial inequality, police brutality, and freedom of expression. While some hailed him as a hero, others criticized him for allegedly disrespecting the flag and the military. Kaepernick’s absence from the NFL since 2016 remains a contentious issue, and his recent comments reveal his ongoing frustration.

According to NFL Rumors on Twitter, Kaepernick reportedly stated: “Former San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick is NOT HAPPY with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for his stance on Kansas City Chiefs Harrison Butker, and he no longer watches the league. ‘That’s why I don’t watch that organization – and I still don’t care who performs at their halftime show’.”

This situation highlights the ongoing tension between Kaepernick and the NFL and reignites questions about social justice and free speech within the league.

Kaepernick’s frustration likely stems from the perceived disparity in the NFL’s response to his peaceful protests and Butker’s more outspoken commentary. While Kaepernick faced significant backlash and remains unsigned by any team, Butker’s criticism of social issues, delivered in a public forum, received a more muted response from the league. This perceived double standard fuels Kaepernick’s belief that the NFL prioritizes profit and public perception over genuine social progress.

Harrison Butker’s Controversial Speech

Harrison Butker, the Kansas City Chiefs’ reliable placekicker, recently delivered a commencement speech at Benedictine College. However, his remarks stirred controversy. Some deemed them misogynistic, while others defended his right to express his beliefs. Butker found himself in the spotlight, and the NFL had to respond.

Goodell’s Stance

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell issued a statement regarding Butker’s speech:

“Harrison Butker gave a speech in his personal capacity. The NFL as an organization does not share his opinions. The NFL is unwavering in its dedication to diversity, which strengthens our league even more.”

Goodell’s words highlight the delicate balance the league faces. Butker’s ability to voice his beliefs was acknowledged, but the NFL distanced itself from his views.

Colin Kaepernick’s Reaction

 

Colin Kaepernick, through his girlfriend Nessa Diab, expressed his discontent. Diab posted an Instagram story juxtaposing Butker’s views with the NFL’s treatment of Kaepernick’s 2016 actions. The comparison revealed what many perceive as hypocrisy. While Butker faced no repercussions, Kaepernick remains sidelined. Diab’s frustration extended to the league itself, leading her to declare that she no longer watches NFL games or cares about halftime show performers.
