Colts Player Takes Knee and Flashes Black Power Fist, Then Massive Karma Comes Calling

Serves him right!

Last Sunday, Indianapolis Colts cornerback Antonio Cromartie took a knee during the national anthem in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Two days later the Colts released the veteran player.

Cromartie crouched in protest while raising a black-power fist during the national anthem, but rose to his feet for the playing of the British anthem, “God Save The Queen”. While most want to believe this is the reason for his release, it was his performance that likely led to his release.

The veteran player was signed late last August as a last minute replacement following an ankle injury to Vontae Davis. Cromartie is in his 11th year of professional football and has been invited to the Pro Bowl on four different occasions while leading the league in interceptions back in 2007. However, he didn’t perform so well in last week’s game against the Jaguars.

“The four-time Pro Bowler struggled throughout and his play with the Colts was summed up by one series during their Week 4 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in London,” ESPN’s Mike Wells writes. “Cromartie was beaten twice and called for two penalties on a drive where the Jaguars managed to get a field goal as the first half came to an end. Cromartie was benched in favor of Rashaan Melvin in the second half.”

According to Breitbart:

The Colts rank 30th in points allowed, 24th in passing yards allowed, and 24th in team defense this young season. At 1-3, the team’s generous defense accounts for their last-place standing in a weak division.

Cromartie also took a knee for the anthem and raised his clenched fist before a win against the San Diego Chargers at Lucas Oil Stadium a week ago Sunday. That resulted in no repercussions, suggesting the aging corner’s play rather than his political stance catalyzed his release.

Cromartie signed a $3 million deal with the Colts prior to the season. He needed the money. Fathering a dozen children by eight different women, with twins arriving last year after a vasectomy, the prolific 32-year-old reportedly owes $336,000 annually in child support. He reportedly averted baby-mama drama, and the consequences of a Florida non-support warrant in the offseason, by signing with the Colts.

Cromartie boasts 31 interceptions in eleven seasons with the Chargers, Jets, Cardinals, and Colts. The four-time Pro Bowler came up with a goose egg in the category this season before his release.

Easy now, Don’t be so hard on “Daddy” All the bottles he has to warm up, It’s slowing him down. He didn’t take a knee, He just trying to rest before the game.
