Max Kellerman causes stir about NFL

ESPN’s Max Kellerman is being criticized by conservative pundits and others for saying the NFL is “injecting politics” into the sport by playing the national anthem before games.

That’s the NFL injecting politics by playing the national anthem and putting pressure on you to stand for it in the first place.” Ryan Fournier, chairman of Chairman of @TrumpStudents who has almost 60,000 Twitter followers, tweeted, “@maxkellerman The National Anthem has nothing to do with politics, it has to do with our freedom and our beautiful country!” Fox Sports 1 commentator Jason Whitlock also ripped the comment, telling Fox Business Network that Kellerman is a good friend, but that his comments represent a “far left-wing” desire to “overthrow everything we used to agree upon.”
