Spike Lee joins support for Colin Kaepernick in protest at NFL head quarters

by Angela Davis |@ladyadavis |@jerseygirlsport Jersey Girl Sports fam the push to boycott this upcoming NFL season in support of Colin Kaepernick is growing and now actor, director and producer Spike Lee is joining the support.  He posted a pic in support of the protest spearheaded by the Justice League NYC and the Empowerment Movement.
Colin Kaepernick rally at NFL headquarters
Spike Lee has always been suspicious of Kaepernick's unemployment.
from yahoosports.com Lee was already upset about the Kaepernick situation in March. He posted on Instagramthat it was “fishy” there was no interest in the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback who had a solid 2016 season but was better known for his national anthem protest. Almost five months later, a bunch of quarterbacks without Kaepernick’s resume have been signed by various NFL teams. Lee tweeted about the rally two days after the Miami Dolphins passed on Kaepernick to sign Jay Cutler, which doesn’t seem like a coincidence.
I have a feeling the protest against the NFL will grow in momentum and size. It will be interesting to see how the NFL will respond. They won't lose any money with contracts guaranteed with networks through 2022, but their sponsors certainly can. They may be the casualty in this budding war. What do you think?
