If CK is waiting for a perfect nation he can just live on his knee. Get off your knee CK, and do something constructive for your nation. Oh, and you might want to consider another occupation. Football doesn’t seem to be working out for youtoo well. The American flag should be resepcted as long as you’re enjoying the benefits of living under it.
Following a season marred in controversy surrounding him taking a knee during the national anthem, Colin Kaepernick has been honored by his teammates.
The San Francisco 49ers released the recipients of their team awards Friday, and Kaepernick won the Len Eshmont Award, the team’s “most prestigious honor” given to the “49er who best exemplifies the inspirational and courageous play of Len Eshmont, an original member of the 1946 49ers team.”
The awards are voted upon by members of the 49ers team.
Kaepernick first made headlines this past preseason when he opted to sit during the singing of the national anthem.
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” he told NFL.com.
After much criticism, he began taking a knee during the anthem rather than sitting.
According to a September E-Marketing Research Poll, Kaepernick was voted the most disliked player in the NFL.
Tell us what you think of the 49ers’ decision to honor Kaepernick with this prestigious award.
This is a perfect example of why we should not support the NFL in any way. We should not watch their games, attend their games, or purchase any NFL endorsed products. We should continue a boycott of the NFL until it steps up and puts an end to these un-patriotic displays by their players and teams and their leadership.
