Kneeling May Keep Bruce Maxwell Unsigned

Former A's catcher Bruce Maxwell is the only MLB player to kneel during the national anthem since Colin Kaepernick's protest started in 2016. Maxwell took a knee before a game against the Rangers Sept. 2017. Now a free agent, Maxwell has been unable to find a team during the offseason.

Do you think this is the reason he's not signed yet?

Not the aggravated assault charge or the .182 batting average? I agree that some people have overreacted to an absurd degree to the kneeling athletes but this guy’s got two very valid issues that would make teams reluctant to sign him that have nothing to do with his kneeling.

I think the domestic violence charges he's facing and the fact he's not very good have more to do with it but what do I know.

Another criminal kneeling. Shocked.

And him pulling a gun on the pizza delivery girl in Scottsdale in an intoxicated state probably has nothing to do with it.

Not the .182 average. Not the firearm charge it’s this?!

Look at me! I'm irrelevant so I'm gonna try to get attention by doing absolutely nothing to help oppressed people or stop police brutality except thirst for attention by kneeling during a song that has nothing to do with either

Him not having a job in baseball has nothing to do with him kneeling.

Tell the truth, his"play" or lack thereof is what's keeping him unsigned.

Hopefully they fire him completely. So disgusted with the anti-American sentiment. Where the hell was Maxwell during any of the so called racial"crimes"and the subsequent investigations? Which by the way....has NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ANTHEM!!!

Maybe it’s also because he’s an 180 hitter.

Lol, orrrrrr it could simply be because the dude doesn't have the talent to play MLB.
