On October 15th, 2017, Colin Kaepernick filed a non-injury grievance with the NFL, alleging that the NFL teams have colluded to blackball him from the League because of his recent political protests. What is the substance of Kaepernick’s grievance claim, how likely is it to succeed, and what other legal avenues might be available to him? Join us as we examine these issues with Professor Randall Schmidt from the University of Chicago Law School, and Professor Michael Leroy from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
