yeah, it was a simple dick waiving contest. The NFL waived theirs by scheduling it on their terms on a Saturday and telling him on a Tuesday. Kaepernick had to accept it, if he declined or asked for more time he would be skewered. so Kaepernick waived his dick back. "yeah, ok, I'll do it, but not on your terms." Its a petty fight and some people want to take the side of the multi-billion organization. thats fine but I'll take the side of the 1 man with an opinion myself who was simply fighting back.
