Colin Kaepernick Files a Grievance Against the NFL Claiming All 32 Owners "Conspired" To Make Him Mediocre and Toxic for the Brand

Actually the grievance -- which is a legal complaint, but filed in an arbitration setting -- says that the owners conspired to not sign him.

Kaepernick, and his attorney — celebrity lawyer Mark Geragos — say that all 32 team owners conspired together to deny him a spot in professional football, even though Kaepernick walked away from a one-year option on his contract with the 49ers, and hasn't been an asset to any football team since 2013.

NFL owners, the complaint says, "have colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick's leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States." Kaepernick contends that it's a "statistical impossibility" that he has not, so far, obtained gainful employment as a professional football player.

Did they conspire to give him a weaksauce 88 quaterback rating? Sure seems to blame a Vast Conspiracy of people for his own weaknesses.

Colin Kaepernick will soon be publishing a book called What Happened: Why I Barely Showed Up in Wisconsin for the NFC Championship Game.

PS, I have no idea when the 49ers last played the Packers for the NFC championship.
