EVER WONDER WHY ESPN IS HEMORRHAGING VIEWERSHIP AND LAYOFFS ARE A PLENTY … LOOK TO NOTHING MORE THAN THEIR LIBERAL AGENDA.
On Thursday, ESPN “First Take” co-host Max Kellerman said during the show that the NFL injects politics “by playing the national anthem and putting pressure on you to stand for it.” WHAT? You think the playing of the American National Anthem is political? Dude, stick to sports as you know nothing of what you speak. So you don’t think that Kaepernick went looking for a protest? I will call you on your bullshit. Maybe you would like to read the reason why he did so, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” His protest was thought out and contrived. Of course he went looking for a protest. You doofus, Kaepernick even stated as much. He was protesting Black Lives Matters. Dear Max, before you spout off with your liberal BS and diarrhea of the mouth, maybe you would like to do some research? But then again, liberals don’t care much about the facts.
As for Max Kellerman, you are an ignorant little man. Sadly, you are a microcosm of what ESPN has become and the reason why the once leader in sports entertainment is nothing more than a joke. ESPN long ago forgot what drove it, SPORTS! Not the liberal agenda they try and spew like the rest of the MSM. ESPN, like MTV a long time ago, has lost its way. If one thinks that the actual playing of the national anthem is interjecting politics into sport, then God help you. One might say Max, that you are they one and your ilk at ESPN who are interjecting politics into sports.
ESPN “First Take” co-host Max Kellerman said during Thursday morning’s show that the NFL injects politics “by playing the national anthem and putting pressure on you to stand for it.”
Kellerman said that neither Ali nor Kaepernick went looking for a protest. The protest came looking for them.
“He was asked to stand for the national anthem,” Kellerman said. “You do not have to stand for the national anthem, and even if it was a rule that you did, is that Colin Kaepernick injecting politics into the NFL? No, that’s the NFL injecting politics.”
“I’m very patriotic. I stand for the national anthem proudly,” Kellerman added. “The reason I am patriotic is because you do not have to stand for the national anthem.”
And a note to Stephen A. Smith, no one deserves a job. They earn one. It takes more than just talent to play in the NFL. No organization wants a player who thinks they are bigger than the team, who would demand more attention than the team, more media attention and becomes nothing more than a 3-ring circus. Sorry, whether you are the NFL or any corporation, that us the case. Unless you have a lot to offer a team, be very important and are not a pariah, that is the only way you would have a job. But make no mistake about it, no one deserves a job.
