Most polarizing sports figure of 2018: Serena Williams or Colin Kaepernick?

Much of the United States remains divided and some athletes remain a sore spot for many fans because of their politics or attitude. Two athletes have been in the crosshairs for one reason or another: Serena Williams and Colin Kaepernick. Williams' tirade against a chair umpire drove many to criticize her on-court demeanor. Colin Kaepernick has been a thorn in the "stick to sports" crowd, including the 45th President of the United States. What do you think?

From yelling at chair umpires to being unabashedly open about motherhood, Serena Williams has been a lightning rod in 2018. 

Some love Serena for attempting to be an elite athlete while also being a mom. Others criticize her for sacrificing time with her baby for career goals or her attitude on the court. No matter what it is, Serena Williams has people talking and that won't change until she retires.

No matter what Colin Kaepernick does, he is always a lightning rod for praise and scorn. 

If he advocates against police brutality, people have an opinion. If someone hears of another player following his lead and kneeling during the national anthem, people have an opinion. Heck, the guy is sitting at home and not playing in the NFL, and people have an opinion. Kaepernick can't move without being judged. He is the most polarizing athlete of 2018.
