NFL News and Notes: Kaepernick supports slavery, Miller traded, Chiefs make trade, Ruggs done

1) Colin Kaepernick continues to support Nike, which enslaves peopleย 

Kaepernick’s new bio-doc, Colin in Black & White, recently dropped on Netflix, and in one episode, Kaepernickย claimed that being an NFL player is something akin to modern-day slavery. During a scene, Kaepernick decries that the players are “poked, prodded, and examined” for defects ahead of an NFL Draft. And in another, the show portrays players standing on an auction block as white people bid on them. Kapernick is still cashing millions of dollars of checks from Nike, which is enslaving people! Too bad, but thirty per cent of the NFL is white, and yes, I think there is some truth to what Colin claims, but the issue is that the NFL treats all players like shit and always has.,

Last year, for instance, aย report published by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) revealed that up to 83 internationally known brands โ€“ including Nike โ€“ have active ties to factories where the Communist Party has shipped Uyghur Muslims to be “re-educated” as slave labor. Once again, this slave labor in China is proven, and Kaepernick does NOT say a word about it.

In August, Nike CEO John Donahoeย admitted during an interview that his company hasn’t been “more vocal” about China’s human rights abuses because Nike makes billions of dollars doing business โ€” both by manufacturing and selling products โ€” to the Chinese. Right here, Nike admits what’s going on in China is wrong, but hey, they make millions of dollars so that they will ignore it.

Donahoe compounded the situation in June by saying that Nike is “a brand of China and for China.” Read that real slow; Nike is a brand of China and for China.

2) Von Miller traded to the Rams; who wins here?

The Rams could net the eight-time Pro Bowler and three-time first-team All-Pro pass rusher for a second-and third-round pick in the upcoming draft. The Rams have eight picks remaining in the upcoming draft, none of which are inside the top 100. Von Miller is a definite winner as he will now get to play meaningful games for the first time in 5 years, and now he is teamed up with Aaron Donald.

The Broncos were winners because the haul they got in draft picks was much better than what they would have gotten if they had ended the season with Miller still on the roster; the Rams are short-term winners because Miller gives them a better shot at making it back to the Super Bowl. Everybody wins in this trade on the surface, and only time will tell who wins. Well, if you think you’ve got some awesome insights to put in here we do suggest checking out the best sport gambling sites in US, found on betting.net

3) Chiefs trade for Melvin Ingramย 

The team announced Tuesday that the Steelers are trading disgruntled veteran outside linebacker Melvin Ingram to the Kansas City Chiefs for a 2022 sixth-round draft choice. Ingram signed in the off-season with the Steelers, but this union has been a disgruntled mess; it got so bad that the Steelers traded Ingram for a sixth-round pick. Will Ingram help the Chiefs? He has to at least a little bit, but the risk comes with acquiring a player that you are getting because he is disgruntled. The Chiefs are desperate to turn their season around, and this is a desperate move.

4) The case of Henry Ruggs

Ruggs was charged with DUI resulting in death, Las Vegas Metro Police said Tuesday. Clark County court records showed that Ruggs was also charged with reckless driving. He was booked in absentia, and both charges were felonies. He’s set for an initial court appearance on Wednesday. A person charged with DUI causing death cannot get probation in Nevada, according to FOX5 Vegas. The charge carries a sentence of two to 20 years in state prison. The reckless driving charge can carry a one- to a six-year prison term. This hurts the Raiders as Ruggs was having a breakout season, but at this point, who cares about that? If Ruggs is found guilty of a DUI, this is murder, and hopefully, he will get significant jail time for it.
