Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Stephen A. Smith calls Eric Reid ‘childish’ in Twitter rant while driving”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Stephen A. Smith has consistently been on the wrong side about Colin Kaepernick. The most recent prominent example of this came in August, when he spent days on ESPN’s air insisting that Jay-Z’s cynical partnership with the NFL was real social progress, and everyone should move past Kaepernick’s unemployment.

On Saturday, Kaepernick was back in the spotlight after a chaotic workout for eight NFL teams that was moved at the last second. A few hours after the workout, Smith uploaded a video where he said the last-minute changes were evidence that Kaepernick “don’t wanna play.”

“He wants to be a martyr,” Smith said. “But guess what? It ain’t working this time...If he had showed out, I’m here to tell you, I believe he’d have had a job inside two weeks.”

Smith’s claim that Kaepernick intentionally self-sabotaged his chances of making millions of dollars as an NFL quarterback is ridiculous, and it kicked off a fight between Smith and Kaepernick’s strongest ally in the NFL, Panthers safety Eric Reid. Smith had attacked Reid this summer when he criticized the Jay-Z deal. When Reid called Saturday’s Kaepernick workout what it was, a sloppy PR stunt, Smith went on ESPN and said that Reid should retire because he’s a “professional complainer.”

[email protected] Tap dancing for the NFL like ⬇️. Damn straight Colin wants to control the narrative! He supposed to trust the organization that blackballed him and has done absolutely nothing in good faith??? Born on Tuesday, just not last Tuesday. https://t.co/EKztmcrDbu pic.twitter.com/gz0xnDe10e
