You might want to sit down for this, but it turns out that politics aren’t the only thing Max Boot is bad at. He also sucks at sportsball:

You fumbled this one pretty badly, Max.

No, Boot really said that:

[Kaepernick’s] agent is reaching out to teams to get him a tryout — but apparently hasn’t gotten a single positive response.

This makes no football sense. Granted, Kaepernick hasn’t played since Jan. 1, 2017, but he’s only 31 years old — a decade younger than the New England Patriots’ Tom Brady — and all that inactivity means he’s a lot fresher than other players his age.

Max has applied the same deep thinking to the rest of his column.


Well, to be fair, Max Boot is a third-rate journalist who lives for drama.

Quite a feat. But if anyone can pull it off, it’s Max Boot.
