ESPN pundit Stephen A. Smith isn’t pleased with how Colin Kaepernick’s settlement with NFL was handled.
The former San Francisco 49ers QB recently settled his collusion lawsuit against the league, but details were kept confidential. That didn’t sit well with Smith at all.
“For me personally, again, I don’t want the decision to be in the dark. Whatever it is, I don’t care what it is, I think people … I think that because of what this morphed into, people have a right to know something other than, oh, we’re not going to disclose any details whatsoever,” Smith said Monday during an episode of “First Take” on ESPN.
The piece goes on to explain that Kaepernick has never seemed to educate himself on the cause he was protesting for, but instead making it look like all he wanted was attention.
I actually have to agree with Smith here. It’s fine if Kaepernick wants to behave like he’s some kind of martyr, but why should he get to do it in secret?
