ESPN Host Says NFL Injects Politics ‘By Playing The National Anthem’
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 made the statement during a segment that compared NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick to world renowned boxer Muhammad Ali during a discussion with Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett.
Kellerman said that neither Ali nor Kaepernick went looking for a protest. The protest came looking for them.
