. . . My contempt for the San Francisco 49ers is even greater now.
The San Francisco 49ers have bestowed upon Colin Kaepernick the highly prestigious Len Eshmont Award.
The award, which the team presents to the 49er who “best exemplifies the inspirational and courageous play of Len Eshmont, an original member of the 1946 49ers team,” is given annually and voted on by the players.
Kaepernick’s season-long protest against alleged racial inequality in America apparently “inspired” teammates to name him for the award.
