Cardi B: No Super Bowl halftime show until Colin Kaepernick on NFL roster
2018-02-05
[WASHINGTONTIMES] Good news for other music stars hoping to do a Super Bowl halftime show ‐ the competition got thinner this weekend.

Rapper Cardi B said at Maxim’s Super Bowl party in Minneapolis that she would not perform unless Colin Kaepernick
Formerly a petulant second or third string quarterback for the San Francisco Giants, now looking for a job. He was willing to stand up for his principles by kneeling during the national anthem, which he had every right to do, but not willing to take the consequences, which he apparently thought didn't apply to him...
, who started the trend of kneeling during the national anthem, is on an NFL roster.

Outside the party, TMZ accosted the Bronx-based rapper born Belcalis Almanzar and asked when she might perform.

"When they hire Colin Kaepernick," she replied, mispronouncing the name of the man she said she is boycotting on behalf of, pronouncing it like KAY-per-nick.

Mr. Kaepernick went unsigned during this past NFL season after opting out of his contract with the the Socialist paradise of San Francisco
...where God struck dead Anton LaVey, home of the Sydney Ducks, ruled by Vigilance Committee from 1859 through 1867, reliably and volubly Democrat since 1964...
49ers. He had been the first player to sit during the "Star-Spangled Banner" during the previous year

#12  I never heard of Cardi B and Kaepernick's only real accomplishment is rocking an AWESOME 'fro.

#11  Kaepernick is somewhat talented however, his relationship to an Angela Davis wannabe professor at Berserkley has radicalized him.

Further, since his radicalization, he has become very cancerous in the locker room promoting racial division within the 49ers.

That is why he isn't working. Has nothing to do with his protest. It is his race baiting politics spilling over into the locker room and practice field.

#10  TW,

Thank you, ma'am! Myself I was hoping for three places lower - out of the top ten, which meant they would have lost serious coin.

Super Bowl Ratings Slip To 8-Year Low As Eagles Score Historic Win

However, for the NFL and broadcasters pummeled with double-digit ratings drops this season, the number that really matters right now is the 47.4/70 in metered market ratings that yesterday’s Super Bowl delivered. Dipping by a slight 3% from the earliest numbers of last year’s Patriots’ 34-28 comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons, Sunday’s game is looking to be the eighth highest-rated Super Bowl ever. With more streaming options than ever this year, last night’s game is up 9% in metered market results compared with when the Patriots and Eagles last clashed in the NFL title game, at Super Bowl XXXIX in 2005.

However, Sunday’s Super Bowl also saw a decline of 5% in metered market results from the last time NBC had the big game on February 1, 2015, when the Patriots faced off against then-champs the Seattle Seahawks. Overall, last night’s game peaked in the high-stakes fourth quarter with a 52.2/74.

All in all, Super Bowl LII is currently the lowest rated since Super Bowl XLIV in 2010, when the New Orleans Saints thrashed the Indianapolis Colts on CBS. That first Super Bowl appearance and win for the Saints garnered a 46.4 in metered market ratings.

#2  ...Waiting to see the overnight ratings. The most recent guess is at Forbes, and they seem to believe that they will be acceptable - trouble is, they need to be 'record' numbers, even if it's just by a small percentage of points.
