Sports Bar Refuses To Air NFL Games After Players Protest Nation Anthem

A sports bar in Denham Springs, Louisiana has stated they will no longer broadcast NFL games until further notice after dozens of players refused to stand during the National Anthem before Sunday's game. Sarita's Grill & Cantina protested the national anthem-protest by refusing to air any future NFL games.

The sports bar posted on Facebook, "Until further notice, Sarita’s has decided not to broadcast any future NFL games or the NFL Network. We respect everyone’s right to freedom of speech; however, we do not support anyone that disrespects our Flag, our Country, and the people who have fought and/or died for the freedoms that we have."

The owners of the sports bar aren't the only ones who are unhappy with the football players protest of the national anthem, one Saints fan named Denise La Grange was so upset over the protest that she took to Facebook to share an image of her burning her Saints memorabilia.

Some Louisiana state representatives even want to cut tax dollars going to the Saints after the protest on Sunday in which dozens of their players refused to stand during the national anthem.

It is about disrespecting the flag and our nation. Otherwise they'd knee during the 1/2 time show or refuse to play at all.
