Colin Kaepernick scored a major victory against the NFL on Thursday. An arbitrator rejected the NFL’s request to dismiss Colin’s collusion grievance against the league and the case will not go to trial.
Colin filed a grievance against the NFL in October 2017, accusing the league of colluding to keep him off the field after he started protesting during the anthem in 2016. In March 2017, Colin left to become a free agent before the 49ers could cut him. Even though Colin once led the 49ers to the Supper Bowl, other teams repeatedly passed him over.
According to the Wall Street Journal report, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in his deposition that Trump told him he should let fellow owners know that he would stop his attacks. The hearing is expected to take place by the end of the year, coinciding with football season. Kaepernick is seeking damages equal to what he would have earned if he were still playing in the league.
