How does that taste NFL commissioner? You’re a scumbag - always have been - always will be.

So Kap’s gettin his job back?🤔

Greedy, calculated, and degrading is what I call it!

RealDLHughley Looks like the NFL is worried their players may not 'play ball' if they don't speak out. All about the money and not about the lives of of its black citizens. If it were NFL would have listened a long time ago and not did what it did to Kap-smh!

Fuck them it's to late.

RealDLHughley Say his name you should have listened to Kaepernick7

RealDLHughley About Time. I respect anyone that admits when they are wrong. But, in order to keep respecting them, I have to see some actionable changes. Let's hope the NFL gets it together. They can start with a Diversity/Inclusion Program for all employees, starting with owners & management.

RealDLHughley Now he wants to say something, Bullshi!

RealDLHughley And now Ms Fonda, you have learned what is this all about.

RealDLHughley Too late!!!!!! Many more are gone, because that was four years ago!!😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

RealDLHughley Kaepernick deserves another shot at it.

RealDLHughley Apologize to kap and rehire him

RealDLHughley Hindsight is 2020, oops my bad. We made a mistake 🤦🏾‍♂️
