When NFL side judge Laird Hayes penalized San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick last week for “unsportsmanlike conduct” everyone wanted to know what warranted the flag. Now we know. According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Kaepernick used the N-word.
After the game, CSN Bay Area’s Mindi Bach asked Hayes what Kaepernick said and his response, “he knows what he said. It was the right call.”
Kaepernick who denied saying anything in his post game press conference with the media while Bears DE Lamarr Houston who was engaged in the aftermath said, Kaepernick didn’t say anything. Nonetheless a $11,025 fine was handed to Kaepernick who plans to appeal the fine.
