John Harbaugh, Ozzie Newsome To Testify In Kaepernick Collusion Case

The Ravens rescued Robert Griffin III from the deep, dark waters of unemployment by signing him to a one-year deal on Wednesday. On Thursday, general manager Ozzie Newsome and head coach John Harbaugh will be questioned under oath as part of Colin Kaepernicks collusion grievance against the NFL.

Kaepernick who attended the deposition of Texans owner Bob McNair in Houston has the right to be present at this one as well. The Ravens are expected to be grilled about why they chose to sign a physically spent quarterback with a history of knee injuries and concussions over Kaepernick who is healthy, hungry and ready to return to the game. 

The answers that Newsome and Harbaugh provide will then become part of a broader collection of evidence, says Bleacher Report, that eventually will be massaged by Kaepernick’s layers into support for his claim that the NFLs teams colluded to keep him unemployed because of his role as the instigator of the NFL national anthem protests that dominated headlines and caused owners financial stress last season, causing a race war of sorts in which President Trump immersed himself in as an adversary to the African-American players and in favor of the oppressive owners. 

We know that Kaepernick has been blackballed from the league. Now the courts need to make it official.

This clip of Max Kellerman speaking on Colin Kaepernick and racial injustice as a whole is a must-watch.

We know that Baltimore, despite having an African-American GM who seemed willing to bring Kaepernick on board, chickened out last year when they needed Kaepernick’s services and instead signed a sucky QB from the IFL who completed one pass in college. It was a straight slap in the face to all African-Americans. 

Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti put on an act that the team might be interested in the unemployed QB and then eventually shut it down. Now his GM and head coach have to cop pleas for their owners racist and oppressive treatment of Kaepernick under oath.   

There were so many instances last year where Kaepernick was the best quarterback available and no team had the guts or the decency to sign him. The more the players protested the more obvious and indignant owners became. The more blatant they were about the fact that they will not sign Kaepernick even if it allows their team a better chance to win. 

It definitely felt like a regressive 1960s and ’70s NFL vibe where owners would rather lose with a shaky white QB than give a qualified African-American a chance to run the team. The bottom line is the owners stood 32 teams strong in not giving Kaepernick a platform to conduct further protests or bring any more attention to social issues.

I don’t see how the NFL owners and executives can be found anything but guilty of collusion in the case of Colin Kaepernick. It is so obvious and once the investigation is completed the NFL should owe Kaepernick, now an American hero, an apology, and some serious back pay. 

Baltimore was just following suit, but they too will eventually pay for joining the owners in obvious collusion tactics to keep Kaepernick out of the NFL.
