Field of Links: Kaepernick unfairly criticized

Jan 14, 2014, 9:22 AM PST

Since the Seahawks and 49ers are meeting in the NFC Championship Game, a four-month-old graphic put together by a Seattle fan is once again making the rounds on the internet. The graphic paints 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick as a self-indulgent, shoe-collecting jerk, while portraying Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson as a perfect individual.

Here’s a look at the propaganda. It is followed by a more accurate representation.


Many websites posted the image, but Yahoo! Sports did a great job debunking the unfair notion that Kaepernick is self-centered NFL diva. A 49ers fan even took it a step further, and made a more accurate representation of the graphic. We can all agree this one is a less-biased representation of the two young quarterbacks.


— Stephen Curry is humbled by the effort of the fans to vote him into the All-Star Game, writes Warriors insider Monte Poole. It’s refreshing to see an NBA Superstar that’s so grounded.

Will Barry Bonds ever make the Hall of Fame? 

The Seahawks have a deaf fullback and his story should be an inspiration to all.

— FUNNY VIDEO OF THE DAY: A guy fell through a roof at a golf shop. No one seemed to care.

People are freaking out because the Chicago Cubs have a new mascot. If you’re one of them, get a life. It’s for the kids.

Deion Sanders says he is going to play in the Pro Bowl and is encouraging Jerry Rice to do the same. Unfortunately, the NFL would never let this happen. Where’s Leon Sandcastle when you need him?

This BMX biker is insane.
