ESPN Host: National Anthem Is 'Injecting Politics' Into Sports

ESPN's Max Kellerman took a while to grow on me, but after watching him host Around the Horn, he did. I was glad to see him survive the recent purges at ESPN.

At least until I found out the insane thing he believes regarding Colin Kaepernick and the national anthem fiasco that infected the NFL last season:

The "First Take" co-host made the comment on Thursday's show. During a discussion about Seahawks' star Michael Bennett comparing Colin Kaepernick to Muhammad Ali, Kellerman said Kaepernick "did not go looking for a protest. It came to him.”

“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 it was a rule that you did, is that Colin Kaepernick injecting politics in the NFL? No. That’s the NFL injecting politics by playing the national anthem and putting pressure on you to stand for it in the first place.”

Max, just shut the hell up.

Yes it is injecting politics and the worship of this stupid illegal federal government.

The Great thing about Steve A Smith like him or not....he and Max are honest and not afraid of injection of an opinion. Now whether or I agree with them all the time is certainly another story. I do feel they are engaging and make you think in different perspective.
