Colin Kaepernick’s Girlfriend Nessa Diab Calls Out NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell
Radio personality Nessa Diab, 38, is defending her long-term boyfriend, former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Wednesday (Dec. 11th), Nessa Diab took to Twitter, calling out the NFL Commissioner, Rodger Goodell following his statement during the league’s winter meetings in Irving, Texas. On Wednesday, Goodell said that after attempting to reach out to Kaepernick and his team to provide the former NFL player with a platform for a spot on a roster, the league has now moved on. He says,
“This was about creating an opportunity. We created that opportunity. It was a unique opportunity, a credible opportunity, and he chose not to take it. I understand that…We’ve moved on.”
Nessa responded on social media. See her tweet below.
There are ppl who give up their rights&integrity for “looks” & a dollar, that’s their belief. Let’s celebrate Colin didn’t allow himself to get played by the league+the others who used that workout to cover up their malicious intentions. WATCH https://t.co/wUlfn5NSXQ @RickStrom

As previously reported, on the day of the workout, the 32-year-old quarterback moved the tryout from the Atlanta Falcons facility to a local high school after learning the media would not be permitted to attend.
Afterwards, Nessa took to social media to campaign for Kaepernick posting details of the new location which included a statement that addressed the media access for transparency.
After completing his workout at the new location, Kaepernick spoke directly with the media on his potential new opportunity to be apart of a roster. In his message, the social justice activist put the league on notice, calling out league commissioner, Roger Goodell and all 32 owners, telling them to “stop running.” He said,
“I’ve been ready for three years. I’ve been denied for three years. We all know why I came out here. [I] showed it today in front of everybody. We have nothing to hide. So we’re waiting for the 32 owners, 32 teams, Roger Goodell, all of them stop running. Stop running from the truth. Stop running from the people.”
The former NFL player was allegedly blackballed after he protested against police brutality by kneeling when the national anthem was sung during games. And now it appears the NFL has closed the book on Kaepernick’s return.
