‘A Slap in the Face’: FL Police Unions Urge Miami Dolphins Boycott After Anthem Protests

H/T Fox News Insider.

Piss on the Dolphins and the rest of the NFL. 

Two police unions in Florida are taking a stand against the Miami Dolphins over national anthem protests.

NFL players continued to protest during “The Star-Spangled Banner” on Thursday night as the league began the first full week of its 2018 preseason.

Two Dolphins players decided to kneel before their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, despite the controversy surrounding the action.

Broward County PBA Vice President Rod Skirvin told the Miami Herald that the action was a “slap in the face.”

The PBA posted on its Facebook page that it is encouraging its members to call the team’s ticket office and request a refund.

The post stated that its members were also offered game ticket discounts because the team had previously said players who protest could be suspended up to four games.

“This organization obviously DOES NOT honor First Responders and the dangers they put themselves in every day.”

“As long as the protest continues, we will protest our attendance at the Dolphins games and continue to stay away from the NFL and its products,“ Skirvin told the Herald.

The Palm Beach County PBA released a similar statement, asking its members to also request ticket refunds.

On Friday, President Trump mocked players who knelt during the anthem, saying they should “be happy” and “be cool” because of the money they earn playing.

The NFL players are at it again – taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their “outrage” at something that most of them are unable to define. They make a fortune doing what they love……

…..Be happy, be cool! A football game, that fans are paying soooo much money to watch and enjoy, is no place to protest. Most of that money goes to the players anyway. Find another way to protest. Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!

Trump added that players should stand for the anthem or be suspended without pay.

Watch more above.
