Football player Colin Kaepernick alleges a collusion among the teams of the NFL to keep him off the field, and all should welcome his attempt to prove such a conspiracy exists. Mr. Kaepernick is to football what the Fiat 124 Sport Coupe is to vehicles: An exhilarating car to drive, but a sentence of woes to own. Fiats (“Fix It Again Tony”s) simply weren’t worth the trouble of owning. They’re not, after all, Lamborghinis.

Mr. Kaepernick is a moderately good quarterback, but not the Lamborghini of quarterbacks, like Aaron Rodgers. He’s of the caliber of the Packers’ best craft choice, Jay Cutler or Super Bowl winner Doug Williams.

I believe Mr. Kaepernick has a role in football somewhere, and like the Fiat 124, his career can be resurrected — as the Yugo.
