A Florida restaurant decided to cancel its DirecTV NFL package over the controversy about players kneeling during the national anthem to protest social injustices.
Curtis West, who co-owns Beef O’Brady’s in Brooksville with his wife Janet, told FOX13 Tampa Bay on Monday there will be no NFL games shown because of the "disrespect” the players have shown.
"Last year, with the kneeling and the disrespect to our veterans and our flag and our country, I was very upset,” West told the station.I'm not a vet, neither is my wife, but I like the gesture. And I'd support it if my travel plans included Florida. Dare we hope this man's action inspires others around the country?
The restaurant will save more than $5,000 by canceling its package and instead will offer veterans 40 percent off on food Sundays during game days, the station reported.
