Boomer Esiason: It's OK for players to take a knee...if you’re a pussy

“Every cat has their right to express how they feel,” Boomer Esiason told the Daily News during halftime of the taping of the Hallmark Channel event on Wednesday. “And it’s something we try to get across to them in the locker room before the game: We want them to be happy and in order to be happy, they have to be themselves.”

And they headlined this It's OK for players to take a knee...if you’re a pussy. Players. You're. Pussy. You figure out the plural v singular issues that stupid thing has.

Gersh Kuntzman writes, "The feline flip-flop is a far cry from what Esiason said last month, when the CBS sportscaster and former Jet quarterback revealed that he holds humans to a different standard than cats."

“I cannot say it in the strongest, most direct way, that it’s an embarrassment and it’s about as disrespectful as any athlete has ever been,” Esiason said about Kaepernick.

“And I don’t care what the cause is. The NFL football field is not a place for somebody to further their political ambitions. Can you imagine if a player went out on the field with a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat? It’s the same thing.”

“If they want to be adopted — and no one is going to take an unhappy kitten — (they need to) put on a great performance,” he said. “It’s all about them being adopted at the end of the game.”

Oh my.

Earlier this month some guy called Ebenezer Samuel headlined, "Boomer Esiason’s ignorance on full display with ridiculous rant on Colin Kaepernick’s protest."
