The turbulent life of Colin Kaepernick

Let’s be honest; there’s nothing we love more than watching a good ol’ game of American Football. Whether you love the atmosphere of watching your favorite sports stars in the flesh or adore the atmosphere of the stadium, or whether you’re just happy donning your favorite jersey and watching from home, there’s nothing better than following the progress of your team. Of course, many football fans also have their favorite players – and most of the time, we all love the quarterback. Over the course of history, football fans have been blessed with incredible quarterbacks that do their bit on the football field, and then get on with their lives. However, there are also other quarterbacks that have their life strewn across the front pages, in books and movies; just like Michael Oher and The Blind Side.
