SEATTLE – Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the public owes a “tremendous amount” to Colin Kaepernick for raising awareness about police brutality and racial oppression by taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem before NFL games a few years ago.

“I think there was a moment in time that the young man captured, and (Kaepernick) took a stand on something,” Carroll said on the Flying Coach podcast, a show he hosts with Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr. “He figuratively took a knee, but he stood up for something he believed in. What an extraordinary moment it was that he was willing to take. I don’t think he had any idea what the impact would be as it turned out, but what a symbol of courage and vision, as he was just learning it, to do what he did.”

Carroll — speaking with Kerr and guest Gregg Poppovich, the head coach of the San Antonio Spurs — addressed Kaepernick in an hour-long conversation about race relations and the state of the country, in wake of the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man in Minneapolis.

With the demise of the XFL and the Seattle Dragons, I was thinking about giving the Seahawks and the NFL one more shot. This article just blew a large hole in that idea. Anyone who thinks Krappernick did a good thing and should be respected is obviously out to lunch and deserves NONE of my respect.

Isn’t Pete Carroll the coach who made arguably the stupidest play call in Super Bowl history? Is he trying to surpass that moment?

Carroll is entitled to his opinion but apparently Drew Brees is not.

But apparently not a job, at least not with the Seahawks.

I cannot watch the Tv anymore as it is ALL about BLM and Antifa. And (Mostly) those on TV Are telling us that BLM and Antifa are RIGHT AND JUST, when all I see is destruction and criminality.

Thinking, intelligent people see through all this. They (BLM and Antifa) must keep this country in CHAOS AND TURMOIL to be able to defeat the forces of good in the USA. Most rational people just want to live our lives in peace, but with Leftists there will never be peace. They aren’t wired that way. They came into this world angry about everything and will leave it angry with everything.

Maybe the coach believes all of Kaepernick’s ridiculous, asinine, “genocide” nonsense.

Or maybe he is simply being politically correct so as not to cause distress and controversy among his low IQ players

And many won’t…unfortunately. Got a team in my town but it’ll be a cold day before they get any of my hard earned money. If they moved out tomorrow it wouldn’t bother me a bit.

We are two nations living in one country – wtf planet is this guy on. I say that as a former life long seahawks fan who if the truth be told lost interest in football when Pete Carrol and Russel Wilson didn’t hand the ball to Marshawn Lynch to win the superbowl and go back to back, bah!

The kneeling just gave me an excuse to further bad mouth them.

Interesting that their actual 1st-string QB, Russell Wilson, said in a recent interview about this whole rotten mess, that he just wanted “to love like Jesus”. The guy tends to be on the side of good more often than not.

Polar opposite of Krappernick.

Krapernic destroyed a Billion dollar industry fanning a race war as a multimillionaire claiming discrimination.

Blacks are a privileged racial class that suffers discrimination because of their propensity to crime and violence.

If you judge them as a race and not individually they are thugs.

That is why King kit the mark with content of character remark.

Problem is that as a whole, their character is sorely lack8ng.

I’m am so sick and tired of this pandering!! The guy’s a loser jerk….if ANYONE in the NFL dare say anything that some might consider disrespect they have to backtrack….ask Drew Breese. That bought the drama queens out in force……just because he disagreed with anyone who disrespects the flag. The NFL was on a downward spiral when they went political and I hope they go the way of the dinosaur!!!

Once upon a time, eight years after he murdered two people, OJ Simpson showed up at a USC football practice.

Head coach Pete Carroll invited the Juice to speak to the team and meet the players, gushing about how great it was to have O.J. there and how they all held him in such high regard.

As I understand it Wilson is a Christian. I suspect the only reason the nfl didn’t get rid of him the way they did Tim Tebow is he’s black.

Why does any American give the NFL the time of day?

Please. Everyone watch Tucker 6//3/2020. Yesterday.

He gives the facts and statistics on cops versus blacks

Followed by Heather MacDonald, who researches this subject And published a book on her findings.

It is a paradigm shift to have facts.

These people are useful idiots. Idiots attacking the US.

Get ready for it folks.

You will probably not be able to watch any TV show (especially sports) without hearing public service announcements, moments of silence, lectures, protest, shaming, commercials etc. about racism.

Anyone in sports or the media who dares not to buy in will be shamed and probably fired.
