Kaepernick’s TIME Person Of The Year Odds Slashed After GQ Award

William Hill have cut the odds of Colin Kaepernick being named this year’s TIME Magazine Person of the Year after he picked up the similar GQ Citizen of the Year.

 

He is 7/4 from 5/2 with Vladimir Putin the 3/1 second favourite. Donald Trump rounds off the top three at 5/1.

 

“Colin Kaepernick started a small movement in 2016 but the importance of what he did when he sat for the US National Anthem has mushroomed this year as more and more athletes have joined him and even if he never plays football again, his legacy has been cemented,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
