国歌斉唱時の抗議は大きな議論を呼び、非愛国的だのチームの和を乱すだの試合への集中力をそぐだの、連邦最高裁判事からは“dumb and disrespectful”なんて言われたりもしました（のちに撤回 😡 ）。

Teammates vote Kaepernick winner of prestigious Eshmont Award
By Matt Maiocco | December 30, 2016
If there was any doubt about how Colin Kaepernick’s protest this season was received inside the 49ers’ locker room, that question was answered on Friday.
Kaepernick’s teammates voted him as the winner of the Len Eshmont Award as the 49ers player who best exemplifies the inspirational and courageous play of Len Eshmont. The award is considered the most prestigious team honor on which players vote.
