Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers and 2016’s most un-American football player, helped lead his team to an epically poor season of football, finishing with a 2-14 record after yesterday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Although that may be karma for the narcissist who refuses to stand for the national anthem, Kaepernick just received an award from his team, leaving many shaking their heads in confusion.
Not one NFL player got more attention than Kaepernick in 2016. Not only did he sit out every national anthem during the regular season to protest the oppression of blacks in America, he stunk up the field with his abysmal performance against the Chicago Bears in a snowy game back in the beginning of December.
He’s also a proud communist sympathizer, who defended his shirt with the now deceased communist mass murderer Fidel Castro emblazoned on it. Now, this poor excuse for a human being has been given an award, and it’s actually quite disgusting.
Kaepernick was given the Len Eshmont Award. This award is unique to the San Francisco 49ers. It is voted on by the players and is given to the teammate who “best exemplifies the inspirational and courageous play of Len Eshmont, an original member of the 1946 49ers team,” according to the team website. Eshmont was the first player to score a touchdown in 49ers history.
However, Len Eshmont and Colin Kaepernick are nothing alike. Most NFL fans, even those who root for San Francisco, began to see Kaepernick’s free speech protest against oppression as disrespectful. Kaepernick was booed relentlessly and was met with the surprise of an incredibly patriotic halftime and pregame show in San Diego before their game.
Colin Kaepernick helped the 49ers lose 14 games this year. Karma was swift to this team, and Kaepernick is definitely America’s most hated player. His horrible performance alone should have made it impossible for him to win the Len Eshmont award, but alas, it’s voted on by players. Now, we know which team in the NFL is the least American. Thank Kaepernick, the communist sympathizer, for setting the bar so low for athletes.
