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.

The article goes on to state the following:

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.

West hung up posters alerting his customers of the change.

“Beef O’Brady’s will not be financially supporting the NFL this year due to their lack of compassion and gratitude for our American service members,” the poster read. “Our National Anthem is one of the methods we as American citizens have always used to show our appreciation to all military service members, past or present, alive or dead. This tradition deserves respect and unfortunately, the NFL does not feel that same way. So, for this season, we will not be purchasing the NFL ticket. Perhaps, it will make a difference if it hits their wallets.”

  1. yeah!! and thank you for respecting our flag and anthem!! I hope it doesn’t affect your profits negatively. I was an avid NFL person for 40 + years. I watched every game I could on TV. I was always a Cowboys fan and still am But they play other teams that do not stand and I will not watch the games. This is my second year to boycott and I miss it but I respect my country and the armed forces protecting it MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
