Last week, nearly half of the 49ers roster knelt, and this week, league Commissioner Roger Goodell also issued a memo, saying it was time to “put the anthem controversy behind us.”
It appears as though most of the 49ers listened to Goodell, and perhaps are catching on to the fact most of America doesn’t believe the premise behind their protests.
According to Washington Post Redskins reporter Master Tesfastion:
Some fans at FedEx Field were booing at the sight of 49ers fans kneeling during the anthem.

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.
