Colin Kaepernick Files Grievance Against NFL Owners For Collusion

One of the most serious offenses in sports is collusion. Teams acting in concert to affect the outcome or limit the decision making abilities of their players was a once a widespread offense in professional sports that had to be weeded out through official legislation.

Now, Colin Kaepernick is accusing NFL owners of a coordinated effort to keep him out of the league.

When you consider the number of starting quarterbacks who have gone down, Kaepernick’s resume, and the fact that he is in perfectly good shape, there is plenty of reason to believe he has a case.

Article 17 of the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement lays out a number of anti-collusion measures, with section one pertaining exclusively to prohibited conduct.

On Sunday, it was revealed that he has filed a grievance under the CBA for collusion against the owners.
