The cops in Broward County, Florida want to put the hurt on the NFL after players were seen with raised fists and were kneeling during the pre-game national anthem.
They posted a statement on Facebook:
The Broward County PBA recently offered our members discounts to a Miami Dolphins game because that franchise said they were going to honor all First Responders. We entered into this partnership with the understanding that the Dolphins organization would require their players to stand for the National Anthem. This did not happen at last night’s preseason game against Tampa Bay.
As a result, the BCPBA will no longer participate in this ticket program, and we are asking all of our members, as well as members of the Dade County PBA and Palm Beach County PBA, not to participate either. If you have already purchased tickets to this game, we encourage you to call the Dolphins ticket office to request a refund because this organization obviously DOES NOT honor First Responders and the dangers they put themselves in every day.
The best way to get the point across is to hurt these organizations in the pocketbook…The NFL needs to know that Americans mean business when it comes to respecting our flag and national anthem.
