Colin Kaepernick is a god and a hero, deserving of our worship and praise. Those were the sentiments coming from the co-hosts of The View Tuesday as they discussed the National Football League, Kaepernick and Commissioner Roger Goodell’s response to the nationwide protests.
Sunny Hostin, in giving her thoughts on the subject, actually said that Kaepernick is “owed” his job in the NFL, deserves backpay and should be awarded a Nobel Peace Prize.
Likewise, Joy Behar didn’t disappoint with her comments on Kaepernick. She said the former NFL quarterback gave up his job for what he believed in. Of course, that’s not exactly what happened but don’t try telling the hosts of The View that fact.
The NFL, when it comes right down to it, is a meritocracy. If you’re good enough, can compete at an elite level and make one of the league’s 32 teams better, you’ll be on an NFL roster. If NFL executives thought Kaepernick’s talent and ability were deserving of a roster spot, he would’ve been on one regardless of the attention of his politics. Because fans will overlook nearly everything if the team is winning.
