That would be a big, resounding, “NO!”
The 49er Faithful have suffered much these last few years. The management fires Harbaugh, then changes coaches every year. Our beloved core players sign with other teams, retire, or get traded. This year is no exception – a new coach and a lot of new players. I’m usually disappointed in management, but never disappointed with the players.
Don’t get me wrong – I believe in showing solidarity and fighting against injustice. Protesting something is your right as an American. I just want you to do your protesting somewhere else, on your own time. At a game, you are on NFL’s and your fans time. Not standing during our National Anthem is a negative thing – I don’t care how you rationalize it. This country does not oppress people of color, or anything else. People do that. Bullies in low and high places. You are an American. Stand proud. A nation is watching you.
I’ll tell you who’s oppressed, Mr. Kaepernick – your fans! We pay for tickets, memorabilia and merchandise. It is your fans that allow you to have the ridiculous salaries, and new stadiums. Why? So we can watch football and enjoy the competition, the energy, and the love of the game. Now, during what used to be entertaining and exciting, we have politics in our face.
Now that you have the Nation’s attention, as well as the cover of Time Magazine, what is your plan to change things? You might start with changing your hair-do. Cut it or corn-row it. We get that you are Black, so please, – lose the fro, bro! It looks silly. Seriously.
I am a 49er Faithful – but I am not happy about it. Basically, this whole thing makes me depressed. It’s football season, but we aren’t having any fun yet. The 49er’s 2016-17 Season has been ruined.
