NFL’s former star Colin Kaepernick received a huge backlash after kneeling during the national anthem, despite claims on his behalf that he is not as much of a flag hater as everyone set him out to be.
Other players were quick to agree on that, stating the only reason they protested was against racism and violence against minorities. In their minds, the only culprits for this occurrence are law enforcements.
However, it is hard to talk of oppression since many of these receive multi-million dollar salaries.Moreover, they’re being paid to be professional and respect the country that made their dreams come true, not act like spoiled children.
For instance, let’s have a look at Colin Kaepernick’s contract with the 49ers which was estimated at a couple of millions of dollars, Now, it was revealed that he has put his Bay area home for sale, for staggering $2.895 million.
Colin first moved in the lavishing property back in 2014, renovated it and then adjusted it to fit his needs.
Still, he kept complaining of oppression and racism. He is not the only player who owns a luxurious home and had protested the anthem at the same time. Such is the case with Oakland Raiders star running back Marshawn Lynch, who is not only Kaepernick’s neighbor but is the owner of the most expensive mansion out of all NFLers.
Lynch’s estate is 7,000 square feet big and has five bedrooms, a gigantic living room surrounded by glass, an elevator that leads to a home theater and 58-foot private boat dock. The purchase price was estimated at around $3.6 million. The entire venture happened once he got signed by the Seattle Seahawks for the next four years, agreeing on a $31 million contract.
And while we’re on the Seattle Seahawks subject it should be mentioned that there’s a Hawaiian estate in a top-dog community in east Honolulu that belongs to defensive lineman Michael Bennet. The estate was bought in 2015 for $4.35 million. Is that what oppression is?
His house was measured at 6,643 square feet and has seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. At the time, the estate was at a $5.1 million worth.
Down over to the West Coast, we spotted Los Angeles Rams defensive end Robert Quinn, who spends his days in a $4.25 million brand new house over in Agoura Hills.
This property is 7,200 square feet big and has tile decor and decorated walls, a marble-clad fireplace, saltwater indoor swimming pool and spa, personal and soundproofed home theater wine vault that counts 770 bottles made entirely out of glass.
Also, the house comes with five beds and seven baths and a massive and separate two-car garage.
How very oppressed these men must feel on daily basis? It is almost irritating to follow this liberal, double standard behavior from NFL players, who like to be considered victims by the global population, but are in fact living the good (should I say great) life. Aside from this, all of the above are proud owners of numerous vehicles and other valuable items that only make the entire drama even more unbearable. I mean, enough is enough.
