Colin Kaepernick to Sio Moore during halftime confrontation: ‘I’m coming for you’ (vid)


A bit of light has been shed on a social media feud started by Oakland Raiders linebacker Sio Moore last Sunday in which he called out San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

TMZ has obtained footage of a confrontation that occurred between the two football players at halftime during Oakland’s surprising 24-13 win over its Bay Area rival.

Kaepernick and Moore clearly can be seen jawing at one another as both teams made their respective ways to the locker rooms at Coliseum.

Something Moore said evidently ignited Kaepernick’s ire — it seems as if Moore is repeatedly saying something like “I’m good,” over and over — as the Niners signal caller approaches the Raiders linebacker and appears to say, “I hope you are. I’m coming for you. I’m coming for you.”

Undeterred and clearly not intimidated by Kaepernick’s threat, Moore responds in kind to the quarterback’s comment, dropping some foul language by saying something about how Kaepernick is a “bitch ass motherf—er.”

This trash-talking incident of course precipitated Moore taking to Instagram to call out Kaepernick.

There’s a difference between boys and Men,” Moore wrote, finishing his commentary by calling Kaepernick a “Freakin chump.”

It certainly makes a lot more sense why Moore felt compelled to take to social media to talk trash about Kaepernick. He simply was wrapping up unfinished smack-talking business.

When asked after the game about how it seemed that Raiders players were baiting him during the game, Kaepernick reportedly said, “I don’t worry about things like that.”

Moore of course got the last laugh, both in the back-and-forth batch of trash talk as well as the Raiders getting the victory in a game where Kaepernick struggled mightily, going 18-for-33 for 174 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions, one of which was of the forehead-slapping variety.
