I see the Seahawks cancelled a visit with quarterback Colin Kaepernick after he refused to stop his flag protests next season, and the sports media is screaming it’s more evidence of owner collusion, as they absolutely can’t understand why teams would care about that. Let me spell it out for you clueless people in the media. There are two main reasons: 1) Teams don’t want distractions nor individuals that make the story about themselves rather than the team, especially when it’s the quarterback, who’s supposed to be a leader; 2) Ticket, merchandise, and TV revenue all depend on fan support. Football fans are overwhelmingly patriotic, and anytime their country is insulted by a bunch of spoiled, brainwashed millionaires, they tend to get angry–angry enough that they stop watching and stop buying tickets & merchandise. Therefore, Protests = Less Cohesive Team + Less Money. Do you get it now, sports media people?
