    Ok... who is denying Kap's "Right to work"? I don't have a right to a NFL Job anymore then he does. Is the NFL going to everyplace of employment and makeing it impossible for him to get a job? Nope, The 32 teams say "we don't want this kind of drama" As a friend of mine said after a guy threatened to quit, "I hear Jiffy Lube continues to be hiring!"

    Rite on Stephen A!! Max tries as usual to spin it to a racial issue which is total bullshit lie!!! Max is such a Fn idiot race hater!!

    Max is ridiculous almost everyone benefits from a platform someone else built. You don’t have to feel guilty for that. It’s called appreciating the opportunity you’ve been given. That’s all. How is appreciation being confused with guilt.

    I'm scheduled for a job interview this Friday at 7:00am in the city. I wonder what they would say if I told them I could see them on Monday at 10:00 but Friday wasn't good for me and I don't do early interviews.

    how can you defend kapernick for being blackballed when he settled that case for collusion out of court? Max thats just your opinion, the courts have already settled the matter legally.

    How has he been denied his right to work? That's like saying every free agent is being denied their right to work?

    TOtally agree with SAS. Colin doesn't want to, nor is he capable of being a starter in the NFL.

    If pat mahomes took a knee for every anthem the next five years he would have a job still because he can play. Colin doesn't have a job because he can’t play period. So the owners aren’t gonna take the risk to sign a liability that isn’t gonna win you games. Nothing to do with race or behavior.

    These woke clowns in the comments is the same one to sign agreements just to get hire with any employer and then complain about the work given to them.

    Steven A,
    Your behavior matters too,
    (As do everyone's),
    Your optics are questionable by many as well
    You're allowed to say what you say by your superiors
    And the moment you continue to challenge that my brother....
    You're gonna be Colin Kaepernicked too my good sir
    Steven A explains the workings
    Max is exposing the errors in the workings
    Such is Kaep
    Such are millions of others
    And our little dollars and votes matter to the one's at the top
    That's regardless of the NFL, NBA, Sam's Walmart, McDonald's, etc

    Does anyone even like max kellerman ? Hes an idiot.... he is reading his notes thinking yeahhhh this is good.... I’m going to look great 😂 it’s all ridiculous. Color is not as big of an issue as they want it to be. Look at the times we live in. A Black President. Interracial couples are extremely common. People aren’t seeing color anymore and it’s amazing. Not to mention most great (and best payed) nfl players are African Americans. They make it something it’s not. Racists nowadays are like leper’s and they are the ones that are slowly but surly being crucified by the masses(as they should). Max Kellerman’s argument is to attack authority (or possible employers) and then want them to hire you because you DESERVE IT. That’s not how it work for ANYONE in the world. Stop playing the victim and get out of the spotlight with your bullshit.

    Cant bring himself to stand for the Anthem of a country that sees him earn millions while he trashes it. Then, he has no problem taking money from a company who makes billions off of cheap labor in China? Next to any politician, hes the biggest hypocrite on the planet.

    He wants the iconic Praise, on the level of a Mandela or Malcolm X. While he's just an self-entitled, underwhelming QB. Being raised by a rich white family doesn't help.

    Has anyone else noticed that on issues concerning race espn rarely shows Max's arguments but are all to willing to allow Steven A to pontificate endlessly. Curious.
    This is the first time I've ever used the word pontificate, worth the post.

    He broke the “more trouble than he is worth rule.” If he was good enough some one would pick him up cause it’s all about the money. He is not ENTITLED to a job in the NFL. Plenty of poor white folks too. Been to Appalachia?

    How come if the man wants to both work and stand up for a cause has to mean that it isn't a priority? He should be able to do both as others have too.

    Your Losing It Stephen. In regards to how you feel Kaepernick should have handled the WORKOUT you must take into consideration his history with the organization on and off the field. His agenda was to be TRANSPARENT which allows him to shoulder the outcome whether positive or negative, he actually gave the NFL an out had he SUCKED. However, to his advantage HE SHOWED UP AND HE SHOWED OUT (AT YOUR REQUEST). This was his Insurance Policy and his way of showing and telling the NFL , media and his fans 'HE LOVES THE GAME' regardless of how the league feels about his personal views. Don't read too much into the KINTE T-SHIRT KAEPERNICK identifies as African American, It's just who he is, respect him for that. In the case of the WAIVER he has right not to sign a Document that discourages his activism on or off the field. The 2011 wavier you flashed (LOL) is Erelavent to 2019 wavier because of the addition to paragraph 10 which states the NFL AND THEIR SUBSIDIARIES are not guaranteeing or obligated to employ him in any case not just that WORKOUT, because it did not exclusively state 'WORKOUT'. Signing the waiver could possibly impact any current or future litigation. We Respect you Stephen A. Smith calm down and don't take this stuff too personal. Stop calling people 'idiot's '.(Not Nice)!!! Hey,,, all those people commenting and disagreeing with you are NOT BLACK , two of them are sitting right across from You!! (Lol)
