Colin Kaepernick Shoves KPIX Camera on His Way to the Locker Room (Video)
It’s been a pretty rough year for Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers. Everyone expected them to be contenders again in 2014 after reaching the Super Bowl and NFC Championship Game in 2012 and 2013, respectively. However, Kaepernick has thrown like a hundred interceptions (okay 10), there have been rumors of tumult and strife in the locker room—which have led to rumors about Jim Harbaugh getting traded—and the team’s chances of making the playoffs are now pretty slim
It’s hardly surprising, therefore, to learn Kaepernick was disgusted as his team walked off the field at halftime during their humiliating loss to the Raiders in the so-called “Battle of the Bay” on Sunday. I mean, the 49ers were tied with the Raiders.
Still, Kaepernick probably shouldn’t have shoved a KPIX cameraman as he walked toward the tunnel. To be sure, KPIX is trying their best to make it a bigger deal that it is. (“It could be considered assault under strict legal terms,” they point out on their website, which is hilarious.) But it was definitely a d*ck move.

The metaphorical sweater just keeps unraveling out there in San Francisco, doesn’t it?
