ESPN’s Max Kellerman Denounces Playing the National Anthem at Sporting Events as “Injecting Politics”

Would you say that Colin Kaepernick injects politics into NFL games by theatrically refusing to stand for the Star-Spangled Banner? Not at all, according to his fellow moonbats at ESPN. It is the NFL that injects politics by playing the national anthem. Barks “First Take” cohost Max Kellerman:

“[Like draft-dodging Nation of Islam moonbat Muhammad Ali,] Colin Kaepernick also did not go looking for a protest. It came to him. He was asked to stand for the national anthem. 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.”

Speaking of injecting politics into sports, ESPN does it relentlessly, as this site has documented repeatedly (e.g., here, here, here, here, here, and here). ESPN’s ultra-left viewpoint may not be far outside the Overton window for sportscasters, who have an overwhelming tendency to be moonbats, but fans are another matter — they tend to lean right:

No wonder ESPN has fallen on hard times. As more people cut the cord, and cable companies are forced to respond, fewer people will have to pay for ESPN whether they watch it or not. Soon ESPN will face a choice: dump kooks like Kellerman and drop the leftist evangelizing or die.

Kellerman types: picked last in gym class, become leftist sportscasters.

    I enjoy college football. NFL…not so much. When politics are thrown into the mix, I opt out.

  2. Principal Engineer says:

    Scratching ESPN has been easy. Other than playoffs
    there is not much of pro sports worth watching
    College is inthe the hands of conferences mostly

    “Soon ESPN will face a choice: dump kooks like Kellerman and drop the leftist evangelizing or die.”

    Option 3, which is my guess regarding what ESPN and many other companies hope plays out: Continue to push the leftist narrative, and big gov will reward you by regulating your competition out of existence.

    I was talking to my son yesterday about ESPN (yeah, I know, a great way to ruin Father’s Day), and I told him of my fond memories of when they first came on the air. Sports highlights and coverage of obscure sporting events.

    Ah, the good old days.

  6. Agrippa says:

    “Mr.” Kellerman looks like the typical Libtard goof-ball — self-loathing, anti-America, brain-dead robot who spews whatever he hears from his masters, etc. Once enjoyed ESPN with Chris Berman (when it first went on the air), but now, eh, who gives a shit . . .
    Give Chris credit for one of the great nicknames in sports: Odebbie “Young Again” McDowell (baseball) way back in the 80’s!

    What a libturd maroon.

    Needs to migrate to anywhere but here.

  9. MB.TrumpbotCruzbot says:

    The national anthem is less political than ESPN is. Get your damned politics out of my sports, ESPN! You too Dave!

    Just kidding, we still love you Dave.

  10. Jester says:

    Sports fans are conservative.

    Also, America is conservative.
    America was founded on conservative principles and values.
    The National Anthem reminds of us this.

    If you want to be a leftist, you don’t belong here. Go somewhere else.

  11. ICEvictim says:

    these self centered scum buckets only love and respect one thing – themselves. The whole idea of something bigger than you is totally foreign to them because they ARE the universe.

    He looks like he’d like to make some injections of his own, into some big sweaty linemen.

    I vote Die.

    SOUNDS LIKE Max’s RED is showing!!!

    Kellerman was grievously injured in gym class years ago. It turns out that repeated atomic wedgies with an athletic supporter can cause serious genito-urinary damage. By most accounts, he may not be able to ever have children.

    As for Kaepernick? NFL?

    Oh. Uh, what team does he play for? I kinda lost track about a year ago.
