Headline Sports podcast with Barbara:
#1 Barbara Netflix will be running a special on Colin Kaepernick that will document his high school years that took him all the way to his years of activism. This will be a six episode documentary and is expected to be timely and thoroughly riveting on Kaepernick’s rootsto his what brought him to taking a knee in the NFL.
#2 Kaepernick during his 49ers years in post game interviews used to give short worded answers and sentences until one day he spoke out after a game about racial injustices and injustices by law enforcement and announced he would take a knee during the national anthem until those justices were righted.
#3 It was a move that later got him banished from the NFL and rebuked by Donald Trump who said that any SOB taking a knee should be fired. This will be a huge part of the upcoming Kaepernick documentary.
#4 San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman is disgusted about Cam Newton’s deal with the New England Patriots questioning on twitter why he got the league minimum $1.5 million pay when he’s a seasoned veteran and other lesser quarterbacks are receiving $15-16 million?
#5 One other point why Newton took the deal from the Pats as it was reported no other team made Newton an offer. The Cleveland Browns had talks with Newton but nothing came to fruition.
