Colin Kaepernick signs $1mill book deal. 

Colin Kaepernick signs $1M book deal.

Colin Kaepernick, the NFL player at the forefront of protests that have swept the league and raised the ire of President Trump, has signed a book deal, Page Six reported.
The deal, reportedly worth just over $1 million, is with One World, an imprint of Random House. Further details on the book were not immediately available.

Kaepernick, who led the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance in 2013 and has been a free agent since March, filed a grievance earlier this month against NFL owners, accusing them of colluding to keep him out of the league in retaliation for his outspoken views on social issues.

Kaepernick was the first NFL player to take a knee during the national anthem before games during the 2016 season. Kaepernick said he was protesting police brutality and racial injustice, and pledged to donate $1 million to charitable causes.

Players across the league began taking part in demonstrations during the national anthem, with some taking a knee, some raising a fist and others linking arms.

The issue of players protesting was thrust back into the spotlight when Trump in September suggested owners should fire players for taking a knee. He has since repeatedly called the demonstrations disrespectful, and last Sunday lamented the league has shown “no leadership” in allowing players to continue protesting.

Master P Wants to Team Up with Colin Kaepernick to Form Their Own Football League. Says Colin K don’t need the NFL. 

This week news broke that Colin Kaepernick is suing the NFL. The one-time Superbowl quarterback accuses the league’s owners of colluding to keep him from being signed by a team.
The free agent has not played this season with some people speculating it’s because he started the kneeling protest during the national anthem. In an interview with TMZ, Hip Hop mogul Master P suggests Kap should take another approach to get back on a football field.


“They’re gonna have to start their own league,” said P. “Maybe Kaepernick, if he wants to stay in shape and play in our basketball league, or I’ll help him start his own league.”
The No Limits Records founder added, “Maybe that’s what I’ll do next, start the football [league].”

Colin Kaepernick says he’ll stand during national anthem if he’s signed by a NFL team. 

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has told CBS that he would stand during the national anthem if given a chance to play football in the NFL again.
According to a report by Jason La Canfora on Sunday, Kaepernick has been living in New York and working out privately in New Jersey with the hope of signing with a team this season.


Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem last season to bring more attention to the killings of black men by police officers and other social injustices. The protests spread this season after the former San Francisco 49ers starter opted out of his contract and was unable to sign on with another team.
The issue has grown as Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett recently said he was racially profiled by Las Vegas police during a confrontation, and President Donald Trump aggressively chastised players and team owners for protests during the anthem.
According to CBS, La Canfora sat down with Kaepernick, his girlfriend and his trainer on Saturday night. It was not described as an interview, as La Canfora paraphrased Kaepernick’s comments.
La Canfora said his “primary takeaway” was that Kaepernick’s sole focus is on being a quarterback. Kaepernick does on-field work and throws hundreds of passes for several hours a day at an undisclosed location in New Jersey. He also trains in a gym and spends part of his days working with youth in Harlem.
Kaepernick said his agent is talking to all 32 teams, and he’s hopeful a team will give him an opportunity for a tryout. He said the Tennessee Titans knew he wanted to work out for them last week, but he was not among four quarterbacks invited for an audition. The Titans signed Brandon Weeden.

Kaepernick said if he is signed, he doesn’t plan to kneel during the anthem. He also said proceeds from his jersey sales would be donated to charity.

Nelly arrested early Saturday morning and charged with second-degree rape 

Nelly was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with second-degree rape following an incident that occurred on the rapper’s tour bus following a Friday night concert in Auburn, Washington.


Nelly, born Cornell Haynes Jr., was booked into Des Moines, Washington’s SCORE Jail just before 6:40 a.m. PST Saturday, three hours after the Auburn Police Department responded to a call from a woman who said that the rapper raped her on the tour bus.

Nelly is currently on the Smooth Stadium Tour with Florida Georgia Line and the Backstreet Boys; the trek came to Auburn’s White River Amphitheatre on Friday night.
According to Q13 Fox, following the concert, Nelly came to nearby Seattle and picked up a woman who he then brought back to his tour bus in Auburn, which was parked behind a local Wal-Mart.
At 3:48 a.m., the woman called police and said Nelly sexually assaulted her on the bus. Auburn Police, citing probable cause for arrest, took the rapper into custody and charged him with second-degree rape. After less than 90 minutes at SCORE, Nelly was released from custody at 8:02 a.m.
“A female called 911 to report that she was sexually assaulted by a male, who is known as the rapper ‘Nelly.’ The alleged assault was reported to occur on the tour bus that was parked at the listed location,” Auburn Police said in a statement. “Nelly had performed at the White River Amphitheater just hours before.” The department added, “Auburn Police are continuing to investigate this incident. The above details are all we have to release at this time.”
The rapper’s representatives did not respond to Rolling Stone’s request for comment, but a lawyer for Nelly told TMZ, “Nelly is the victim of a completely fabricated allegation. Our initial investigation, clearly establishes the allegation is devoid of credibility and is motivated by greed and vindictiveness. I am confident, once the scurrilous accusation is thoroughly investigated, there will be no charges. Nelly is prepared to pursue all all legal avenues to redress any damage caused by this clearly false allegation.”
The Smooth Stadium Tour comes to Ridgefield, Washington Saturday night.


BHRE Update:

Nelly has released a statement following his arrest Saturday morning on second-degree rape. “Let me say that I am beyond shocked that I have been targeted with this false allegation,” the rapper tweeted. “I am completely innocent. I am confident that once the facts are looked at, it will be very clear that I am the victim of a false allegation. I do want to apologize to my loved ones for the embarrassment and for putting myself in a situation where I could be victimized by this false and defaming allegation. I also want to thank my fans for their unwavering support. They know me. I assure you I will be vindicated. And I assure you, I will pursue every legal option to address this defaming claim.”
