Charles Robinson, Senior NFL reporter for Yahoo! broke it down via Twitter:
Colin Kaepernick has won the summary judgment phase of his collusion case – a phase specifically requested by the
#NFL in hopes of a dismissal. Instead, arbitrator Stephen Burbank has refused dismissal (in favor of Kaepernick) moving the case toward a hearing. Huge blow to the #NFL.
What this means for Kaepernick is the arbitrator weighed the current evidence and essentially told the
#NFL that its opinion of Kap not meeting a standard for collusion didn’t hold up in summary judgment. Basically, he’s seeing smoke. That’s a big win for Kaepernick’s side.
Ayeee…I’m with Kap!
