Colin Kaepernick Joins Madden NFL 21; Free Weekend Starts Thursday

Colin Kaepernick may still be blacklisted in the actual NFL, but EA SPORTS announces that they have brought the activist quarterback to Madden NFL 21 as a free agent. And speaking of free, they also promise a free weekend is coming to their football simulation starting Thursday. Here's word:
Colin Kaepernick is one of the top free agents in football and a starting-caliber quarterback. The team at EA SPORTS, along with millions of Madden NFL fans, want to see him back in our game. We’ve had a long relationship with Colin through Madden NFL and worked through our past soundtrack mistakes.

Knowing that our EA SPORTS experiences are platforms for players to create, we want to make Madden NFL a place that reflects Colin’s position and talent, rates him as a starting QB, and empowers our fans to express their hopes for the future of football. We’ve worked with Colin to make this possible, and we’re excited to bring it to all of you today.

Starting today in Madden NFL 21, fans can put Colin Kaepernick at the helm of any NFL team in Franchise mode, as well as play with him in Play Now. We look forward to seeing Colin on Madden NFL teams everywhere.

Wow. "racist traitor"? Who is he betraying and how? "isn't that good at Football"? He might not be a Hall of Famer but he is (or certainly was) easily better than 1/3 (possibly more) of the starters in the league. He might not be a typical "hero", but the actions of others effectively turned him into a martyr.

Kaepernick made a statement with a silent, non-violent protest, calling for justice and was shredded by the white power structure for it. I've never had any interest in EA Sports games, but I give them significant credit for sticking their neck out on this. I hope they are rewarded for it.

While I agree with that because as a veteran, I never really minded about the kneeling. I served so people could speak their mind and protest the ways they wanted too (Plus, there is no law against the Flag Code or any other law in the US Constitution or otherwise that states you cannot kneel or have to stand at attention during the US National Anthem.) But, when some teams came back recently and offered to watch his workouts, he made some pretty bold demands for someone who wanted to come back into the fold. I'm sorry but I cannot just tell my employer where I want to meet and then change it at the last minute, how I'm going to conduct business and override your job offer with a list of my own demands. There's only so much you can request before employers will shop somewhere else.
