On this week’s episode of the Edge of Sports podcast, we explore the significance—or lack thereof—of Colin Kaepernick’s tryout with the Las Vegas Raiders. We also talk about Gabe Kapler’s decision to not stand for the national anthem.

We also have a special Jake’s Takes where we discuss the politics of baseball, the lack of African American participation in the sport, and whether the game is still entertaining.
