Spike Lee is rallying for unemployed QB, Colin Kaepernick
Lee has posted a proclamation that a rally will be held for Colin Kaepernick (apparently spelled “Kapernick” in the announcement) at the league offices on Wednesday, August 23. Spike couldn’t even take an extra moment to get his man’s name right?

It’s unclear whether Kaepernick is involved in the rally or even wants it to happen. Some would say that the rally is another example of the “distractions” Kaepernick would bring to the locker room, especially as a backup QB.
It’s also unclear whether the rally will make a difference. It’s possible, in theory, that the league will twist arms to get Kaepernick a gig before August 23. Then again, this won’t be the first pro-Kaepernick demonstration that 345 Park Avenue has endured. In May, roughly 75 showed up to speak out on his behalf.
The Ravens still could sign Kaepernick, sooner than later. If Ryan Mallett stinks it up in the preseason opener, the Ravens may finally resolve their lingering deliberations regarding whether Kaepernick should be given a gig.
That being said, Kaepernick is 1-10 in his last 11, and 6-20 in his last 26, so there’s that. Between a lack of talent and the distraction, the pieces sort of add up.
After many point out the blunder in the graphic, the post remains:
You didn't spell his last name correctly. #kaepernick

At least spell his name right.

Might want to get his name right first.
