Colin Kaepernick’s attorneys are working to collect evidence of collusion by the NFL to kick him out of the league, as he filed the grievance against the NFL in October. It is not yet clear who will be compelled to make the deposit as the grievance process unfolds according to the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement.
Though I never had the pleasure of meeting Muhammad Ali, he mentored me without ever meeting me. He in many ways laid the foundation of what I saw as the zenith of athlete-activism and perfecting the utilization of your platform as an athlete to force conversations about how America was not living up to what America professes to be. Lonnie Williams, the wife of Muhammad Ali was in attendance tonight. I am equally honored to share this space with her. She once said that, “Muhammad’s legacy is not just for me and his children and grandchildren, it’s a legacy for the world.” I accept this award, not for myself, but on behalf of the people, because if it were not for my love of the people, I would not have protested. If it were not for the peoples willingness to support me, I would not be on this stage today. Thank you very much to Sports Illustrated for the honor of the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award. I am humbled and honored to share this with the people. ????: @KarlFergusonJr
Stephen Burbank who is a University of Pennsylvania law school professor is appointed to defeat the Kaepernick's legal team. Now the Kaepernick team should produce the evidence and convinced that the league conspires him to keep out of the league.
John Schnatter who is also a founder of the Papa Jones was fired from the CEO post when he blamed the NFL player and leadership weakness for his business disappointing sales. The whole situation took place when QB Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem.
The deposition list also includes the NFL commissioner’s wife Jane Skinner after numerous document, phone records & e-mail were collected by the Kaepernick legal team from NFL officials. Skinner accepted in October that she used a twitter account using a false name to fire comments against the journalist commenting negative tweet against her husband Roger Goodell.
