The NFL thought their bases have been coated once they launched a hashtag-driven voting system for this season’s Pro Bowl. But it seems, the hashtag system, though simpler to tabulate, may get anybody voted into the sport, even inactive gamers together with Colin Kaepernick. That’s precisely what Kaepernick have come to understand. As quickly as sufficient supporters observed the flaw, that they had grounds to arrange a motion – and as soon as that they had a motion, #ProBowlVote began flying off the deal with alongside the #ImWithKap hashtags that often make the rounds.
Although the NFL would doubtless take motion if Kaepernick turned the main vote-getter, there stays a precedent for one thing like this occurring prior to now. During the 1991-1992 NBA Season, followers voted a retired Magic Johnson into the All-Star Game, the reason is: a loophole was created by his sudden retirement as a result of well being considerations.
In Magic’s case, they allowed him to play, inspiring him to a classic efficiency on his technique to MVP honors. Of course, Magic Johnson and Colin Kaepernick have been beset with very completely different circumstances. Colin remains to be going ahead along with his “lively collusion” case in opposition to the NFL. Personally, I would wish to see Kaepernick acquire probably the most votes, simply to witness the PR nightmare that will ensue.
