GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. —
A Greenville County restaurant owner says he will no longer show NFL games until players end their national anthem protests.
On Sunday night, in a news release Palmetto Ale House owner David McCraw told WYFF News 4, “NFL will never be played at Palmetto Alehouse until all players pay respect to our flag and to our country!”
McCraw made a similar statement on the Palmetto Ale House Facebook page:
McCraw’s decision comes days after President Donald Trump said any NFL players who kneeled during the national anthem should be fired.
In response to the President’s comments, Sunday dozens of players chose to kneel during the national anthem. Other players chose to stand and locked arms with teammates.
Several NFL team owners joined their players on the field during the national anthem Sunday after speaking out against the President’s comments.
