Listen: Washington Redskins, Football And Colin Kaepernick discussed on Chip Franklin
"Now back to Franklin on K G O eight ten. What we told you the story earlier, and it's really sad that Alex Smith is dealing with an infection after surgery for that horrible leg injury. Not that. Unlike Joe thighs men, and that his foot was hanging on by muscles to bone. It literally broke it off. And I mean, he's not gonna lose his foot, at least it would have to take something a lot worse. But it was just two weeks later that caught McCoy backup to the Washington Redskins broke his leg. And then they put in Mark Sanchez new has created his own brand new way of fumbling football. It's called the butt fumble. He looked horrible. I saw the game was on Monday night football. You probably saw too so jeeze if only the quarterback out there with a good experience who could be at the very least a backup, and they can put them in a what do you call that formation? When they they put them in the quarterback's intended to run it's got a particular name for that formation. I can't remember. Yeah. Wildcat. Thank you. He would be perfect for that. I also read recently that he's been. In working out with to college football coaches for the last year just to stay in shape. So he's in shape. He's been hitting the sled to simulate contact contacts should be on the Washington Redskins. Richard Sherman agrees with me too. And he is slamming. He is. Sherman play for the Seahawks. Right. I can't remember. Yeah. He's a he's a former Seahawks defensive back. That's right. Who's now with the forty Niners. But Sherman is saying that I think it's unfair because he's good football player. And he's not getting a chance to play football and worse football players are getting chance after chance after chance after chance after chance and Reuben foster is a great example the Redskins grabbed him he beat up a woman, but Colin Kaepernick who's standing up for young men of color or getting shot by police officers. What's wrong with that picture? What is wrong with that? Really the NFL's is messed up, and we always said it. But the exclusion of Colin Kaepernick, I hope he wins that case, and I hope he gets hundreds of millions of dollars from these guys for collusion anyway, eight oh eight oh, eight one. Oh, let's go to Jack. And Dan, Jack. What problem do you have a cabinet? I don't have a problem with Colin Kaepernick actually agree with that. I'm answering your question of why he is an Indiana. What a chip would ahead coaches hate more than interceptions and fumbles distractions. So beating up women isn't a distraction. I. Beyond the team gets picked him up for twenty nineteen. He's gonna be on the team this year. They didn't pick up that running back from the Redskins. From Kansas City. I can't remember his name right Kareem hunt. Yeah. Picked up your understand. But there are differences here. You're talking about two guys who assaulted human beings, Colin Kaepernick stood up for human beings. There's no I'm just I disagree with you. I think today today, the the head coach is a reflection of the owner and the owners like Jerry Jones is a perfect example. He's on the sidelines. And everybody knows Jason Garrett is only there to do what Jerry Jones vision of the team should be Dan Snyder's the same. These guys are a little club of rich white men who care about nothing about the social implications of what their sport is their sport effects kids as young as eight years old. Can make more money from winning. They're more concerned about winning Colin Kaepernick, why tell us again guys go and check it out put them on. Yeah. Had the third highest. I want to win. He had the third highest quarterback rating when he left he had sixteen touchdowns and five interceptions. Whether the last time he was on a football field. I don't get it. Okay. Maybe maybe my series wrong. Then. You're saying thank you. And I are the same age old thing we hate distractions. The bulletin board stuff with today. People say all that crap. And I don't think it matters anymore. Bulletin board kind of stuff. I mean, what you're saying something that I would agree with if we were like nine hundred ninety parcels and Gibbs and those guys were around, but I think it's a different game right now. I I think wash and all those other hall of fame coaches, they had more control, maybe the general manager had a little bit more. But the owners were just there on the sidelines today. The owners are part of it. And they they don't lie caffeinate because he got everybody. He got everybody watching the game. And they brought up all the racism. They brought up the violence domestic violence, and boom, that's it. Yeah. Ten Las Gatos. What what about the facts? Don't you like? The fact that the factor there. I mean, the guy the guy should be given the chance, but why isn't he given the chance that's because he's just he's just too too complex to throw into a locker room. It's not your high. Complex. You got football players that are beating women Ray rice slugged the woman at listen, quiet, Paul. Hey, listen, I'm gonna tell you something. Because obviously, you don't know it that these are violent men that are attacking women, and in a society it's happening to, but if you look at what's going on in the NFL right now, you have I mean, there's a statue for Ray Lewis outside a raven stadium. He was convicted of obstruction of Justice in the murder of someone and they put a statue up form. What is it about capper? Nick, the that would keep him off a football field right now for a quarterback, and they have the option of capper, Nick. And now, they don't they don't choose cabernet now about the Redskins who there's only two reasons for that. Okay. One. He's just not that good. Bharti giving you the he is good. He's he was he took a team to the Super Bowl. Okay. The second reason go ahead. This is the second option is that he is too complex that. I can't I can't do it. I can't listen to the ignorance coming out of people's mouths. I don't know if you're racist. I don't know you at all. But there is racism in this world, Colin Kaepernick, all he did was stand up for people and give up his career to the racist owners of the plantation mentality of the NFL. If you can't see that you're freaking blind. Yeah. It bothers me. And the Redskins are team. I grew up with. Here we go again, Steve you're on G O. I was commenting the other caller that was saying he was a distraction or whatever I think the machine like imminent Reuben foster as far as distractions. Reuben foster get through his and he wants the distraction anymore. And I think they do college opera Nick is being a constant distraction. Again, you know, he hasn't played in. Destruction. Every week. Okay. He's not a distraction all the places. Hey. Hey guber. Listen, I'm telling you, he's not a distraction in the locker room the players like him on the field. He's the consummate professional. You may not like the way place. He took a knee on the sideline. After a white veteran said it's better than sitting down kneeing for every for the history of ever, whatever you knelt. There was a sign of respect, but he was kneeling instead of standing because he believed that the national anthem again a bar song with a racist lyrics. I mean racist versus I'm just telling you the guy belongs to be on eight blogs on the field. And if you can disagree with me at doesn't mean, you're racist. I'm not saying that I'm just saying that the NFL owners are, and if you can't see that just don't want to see it. And again, see that I'm saying what I said, which is they consider him to be a distraction. I didn't say he was a distraction. Okay. Goodbye. I just I'm pissed off. Sorry. And that's why he should be times person of the year. What I told you use my number two. My number to all right anyway. So tomorrow on the show, we're gonna talk more about Tucker Carlson. We're gonna talk a little bit about the confederate flag. We're also going to get to. Oh god. I got a lot of stuff here you'll hear the promo coming up in a bit. But before we do any of that, Nick. He's got something to say coming up, a new obstruction of Justice investigation is launched into President Trump, and the trade war between the US and China is getting more complicated after the arrest of a wall way executive those stories,."
