Fans of Colin Kaepernick are angered that Tim Tebow will be returning to the NFL while Colin Kaepernick has not yet.
Ian Rapoport reported “the #Jaguars are planning to sign QB-turned-TE Tim Tebow to a 1 year deal, per me and @TomPelissero, a deal that could be official in the next week or so. Nothing done yet. But he’ll have a chance to make the team to reunite with his mentor and college head coach Urban Meyer.”
Here is some of the backlash from Kaepernick supporters.
“I just vomited. Tebow gets chance after chance because he is a white Christian try hard guy but Kaep gets blackballed for kneeling. Smdh. Now watch all the networks breathlessly cover this crap.”
Tebow – Hasn’t played in the NFL since 2012. Gets another shot.
Kaepernick – Hasn’t played since 2016. Gets nothing.
What’s the difference? Can’t seem to put my finger on it…
“Colin Kaepernick seeing Tim Tebow get another shot in the NFL before he did”
Matt Walsh had another take, writing “People like Tim Tebow because he’s grateful, positive, and humble. They hate Kaepernick because he’s a sullen, spoiled, rotten little brat. Both are immensely privileged. Only one responds with gratitude. People like that one and not the other. Not that hard to understand.”
