Papa, can you hear me? Colin Kaepernick's lawyers want a word with former Papa John's CEO John Schnatter as they dig deeper into the quarterback’s collusion case, according to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora. As they build a case that shows NFL owners allegedly colluded against their client, Kaepernick's lawyers have singled out Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who was outspoken against players demonstrating during the anthem, according to the report. Kaepernick's legal team reportedly wants to depose Schnatter to find out if Jones had a hand in his explosive comments last year in which he blamed sagging pizza sales on the NFL anthem protests the excommunicated QB started. "The controversy is polarizing the customer, polarizing the country," Schnatter said during an earnings call in November, a claim that was later debunked by soaring Pizza Hut sales. The company apologized for Schnatter's comments after white supremacists were emboldened by them, and Papa John's was forced to say it did not want racists buying their pizza.
