ESPN Anchor Takes Shot at ‘First Take’ Colleagues for Racial Double Standard Over NFL TD Celebrations

While showing a highlight of Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce dancing on ESPN’s “SportsCenter,” anchor Robert Flores questioned the recent coverage on ESPN’s “First Take” of Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and the lack of coverage over Kelce for celebratory touchdown dances. Newton, who is black, received coverage a whole week for his elaborate dance on “First Take.” “First Take” co-hosts Stephen A.

He said, ‘I think it was an eagle, but it’s gone.’ ” He continued,  “We thought maybe someone had shot something the day before and left a gut pile (that would attract a scavenger like an eagle). Then we saw some movement, walked in a bit, and the bald eagle was stuck there in a trap.” Michael and Neil found the eagle inside a trap used by fur hunters. They both said they knew they should call the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry but said they “felt it was more important to free the bird right away.” They told The Sudbury Star how they freed the bird: Michael said he tugged off his hoodie and placed it over the raptor’s head while they pressed on the release mechanism of the trap. “Me and my brother just kind of held onto it, and it calmed
