Shannon: Why are people telling Colin Kaepernick to ‘focus on football’ – but not saying that to J.J. Watt?

Is there a double standard in the NFL? Shannon Sharpe explains to Skip Bayless.

- I've always-- and I'm a firm believer in this. If you respect and you appreciate someone's cause, you will appreciate and respect the person that represents that cause. But if you don't-- if you don't think the cause is worthy-- you definitely will disagree and not think the person that's supporting that cause is worthy.

Hence, you get JJ Watt, and you get Colin Kaepernick. Now, no one has ever told JJ Watt-- he gave $100,000 of his money. He's already up to 20 million. Nobody said, JJ, stick to your day job. Stick to sports. Because everybody thinks what are doing is commendable-- and it is! Nobody said JJ Watt had a selfish agenda-- not one person.

But Colin Kaepernick took a million out of his own pocket. Nobody got no 20 million in donations. But it just goes to show you, Skip.
