Colin Kaepernick’s protest continues onward! On Sunday, though, he was finally allowed off the bench and started the game for the San Francisco 49ers.
The 49ers were playing the Buffalo Bills. Let’s just say that the Buffalo fans are not fond of Colin Kaepernick.
And while Kaepernick took his usual knee during the National Anthem (while the Buffalo crowd chanted “USA! USA!” just before the anthem started), the picture of him doing so spoke a thousand words.
I’m sure Kaepernick had no idea that the police officer was saluting behind him. Twitter got awfully whiny about it, too – mostly because someone was stepping on Kaepernick’s moment. And then the Buffalo Bills stepped all over Kaepernick, beating the 49ers fairly soundly, 45-16.
