Spike Lee Is Organizing A Rally For Colin Kaepernick At NFL Headquarters

Spike Lee Is Organizing A Rally For Colin Kaepernick At NFL Headquarters

He has scheduled a support rally for the former 49ers quarterback to be held at National Football League headquarters in New York City on August 23 at 5:30 p.m.

While the decision by the Dolphins isn't an entirely apples-to-apples injustice " Cutler previously worked with Dolphins coach Adam Gase, a former offensive coordinator in Chicago, and Kaepernick's wearing of a Fidel Castro shirt would have made it more hard to gain acceptance in Miami than any other National Football League city by far " it still epitomizes what a raw deal Kaepernick is getting.

The recent signing of former retired QB Jay Cutler with the Miami Dolphins also spells doom for Kaepernick because that was one of the last teams to need a quarterback.

Lee explained that he did not organize the protest, but supports Kaepernick "and his stance on the injustices in the United States of America". To him, it didn't matter who won because "it's another face that's going to be the face of that system of oppression and to me, it really didn't matter who went in there, the system still remains intact that oppresses people of color".

J. Cole has been a supporter of Kaepernick from the start of his protest, and wore his jersey in solidarity past year at a concert. "I think, obviously, being 24, I feel that I still have some time, and that won't be my last opportunity, so I'm looking for a new situation".

The poster featured an egregious spelling error, Colin Kaepernick's name.

Asked about a possible baseball career, as another former Heisman victor, Tim Tebow, is famously pursuing, Manziel said he's talked to the Padres, the team that made him a 28th-round draft pick in 2014.

"There's no question about it", he told NFL Network on Monday.

The petition will be sent to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and every team owner in the league once it reaches 100,000 signatures. There is just a lot that surrounds it when he's a backup quarterback.

"But for right now, I think I'll leave that to Tebow", Manziel chuckled. "We wanted to be able to sit down and visit with him and go through the process with him knowing we know exactly who he is, exactly where he stands and we can go to him if needed".
