Stephen A. Smith, Eric Reid at War over the Kaepernick Workout:
Sometimes Stephen A. Smith just NEEDS to take his own advice and #STFU just like he tells all the athletes he rips apart.
He has a lot to say about everyone and now he is sounding off about the Colin Kaepernick workout where only 8 teams attended. Smith is blaming Kaep because he changed the venue 3-hours before the workout claiming that is why 25 teams did not attend and why he won’t be signed.
Does Smith forget that the team unconfirmed on Wednesday about attending?
Stephen says that Kaepernick’s location change rubbed everyone the wrong way and that this time his antics “won’t work.” And that is why his agent has not received any offers and won’t.
Panthers player Eric Reid called the showcase a “PR stunt,” tweeted back, tagging Smith’s original post:

#celebnsports247 #smh #sports #news points out that #stephenasmith is coming for @e_reid35 @kaepernick7: “The more you talk, the more ridiculous you sound, @e_reid35. Actually, it’s worse than I thought since you’re the one tweeting at me hours before a damn game. And speaking of the game, weren’t you in Atlanta in attendance for Kaepernick’s workout yesterday — before having to leave EARLY to play for a team in a league you’re feeling so oppressed by? Wasn’t that you? Just asking! Hold on! I have more! That same Malcolm X — who we all revere for life — you just brought up acknowledged there were slight errors in his thinking. You didn’t bring that up? You Eric Reid went through the same process Kap was suppose to be go through and you’re still playing on Sunday. But you didn’t bring that up! And unlike you, walking around and doing nothing but bitching at every turn, myself and many others in the media have religiously called out the NFL for blackballing Kap. We’ve religiously highlighted the unfairness of it all. And some of us have worked behind the scenes, trying to help Jay-Z and others in their quest to get Kap back in the league. Meanwhile, what is Eric Reid doing? Complaining like he wants to be on @firsttake. Failing to stop the run on Sundays. Talking S$&@ about the NFL at every turn…….but asking for that check, no doubt! Yet, I’m the one tap dancing. Why? Because I’m gainfully employed while trying to remind youngsters out her of the pitfalls that lie-in-wait. Meanwhile, someone like you continues to throw professionalism, decorum and decency into the wind — sending folks down a dead-end path — all because your boy isn’t getting precisely his way…..when NO ONE gets their way. So who’s the SELLOUT! Guess what, it’s neither of us. We just have a difference of opinion. I still respect the hell out of your immature, belligerent self. But I’m going to call it like I see it. Kaepernick made a mistake the way he handled all this…….IF he really wants a job in the NFL. Period. And your contribution to all of this doesn’t help. It hurts. It ain’t about you being wrong. It’s about you needing to grow the hell up. Your decision. Your life! Do you!
Eric Reid responds to Smith’s long-winded response, reaching and trying to get traction.
