The fans in Washington DC took a knee on seven 49ers players who kneeled during the playing of the national anthem. None of the Redskin players took a knee. The fans were loud in their booing and let the 49ers know exactly how they felt about the spoiled millionaires who protested against America’s greatest heroes, the military. Six active players and a former player took a knee for the anthem.
The attendance and viewing numbers continue to sink and the ultimate losers will be those very same spoiled millionaires who protest, since with numbers going through the floor, there will be much less money to pay out in huge contracts, especially for the small market teams.
The 49ers are in Washington, D.C. to take on the Redskins. NFLPA President DeMaurice Smith was also in attendance. This marks one of the first times that fans at FedEx Field, where the Redskins play, could be heard booing protesting players.
6 active 49ers players kneeling during the anthem, seven total. None on the #Redskins sidline
