On Friday, Greg Moore of the Arizona Republic wrote the article ‘Roger Goodell says NFL has ‘moved on’ from Kaepernick? What if blacks ‘move on’ from the NFL ?’
In this particular piece, Moore spoke on the idea of the National Football League without Black players.
“Let’s take that to its next logical step and consider if that multiethnic coalition of insulted people of conscience decides to boycott the beer and soda and pizza and insurance and car companies that prop up the endeavor of pro football,” wrote Moore.”Imagine how much money these companies would stand to lose in a week, a month, or a year. Let’s just “stick to sports” and imagine a world of pro football without black people.”
The APSE award-winning columnist continued:
“That means five of the top seven quarterbacks by the ESPN quarterback rating metric would be gone.
That means four of the top five running backs by yards gained would be gone. (This ratio could go on awhile. I stopped counting at 19 of the top 20.)
That means seven of the top 10 defenders by total tackles would be gone. (The top overall tackler is Latino, so that would be eight of 10, if we’re expanding this to all ethnic minorities.)”
The former 49ers QB hasn’t played a lick of professional football after he opted out of his contract with the team as no team has even bothered to call him out for a tryout after a 2016 season that was filled with controversy over him kneeling during the National Anthem.
