Joe Rogan is not happy with Colin Kaepernick’s comments about NFL training camps.
In his new Netflix show Colin in Black & White, Kaepernick compares the camps to the slave trade, and the clip went viral.
“What they don’t want you to understand is what’s being established is a power dynamic,” “Before they put you on the field, teams poke, prod, and examine you. Searching for any defect that might affect your performance. No boundary respected. No dignity left intact.”

Rogan has responded to the clip on his podcast, and he didn’t hold back.
“That’s what he’s doing; he was measuring like wing spans and the combine scores, like for weightlifting and speed and all that stuff. That’s to see how physically adept you are, how good you’re gonna be at football, so they’ll give you tons of money. The idea that this is comparable to slavery, whoever f***ing wrote that down and then he — the fact that he read it and said it, and then they had that video where they’re comparing the NFL owners to the slave masters, and they’re shaking hands with each other: What the f*** are you talking about?”
