FARMINGDALE, N.J. — A New Jersey bar has decided to continue its blackout of NFL games until players stop kneeling during the national anthem.
The owners of Woody’s Roadside Tavern in Farmingdale didn’t show any games over the Veterans Day weekend and instead raised more than $8,000 for a local veterans’ charity. The ban came about after an Army veteran asked the owners of Woody’s Roadside Tavern in Farmingdale to sacrifice Sunday football.
But the bar’s owners recently posted on its Facebook page that the protest will continue until the player demonstrations stop. Many NFL players have chosen to kneel during the national anthem to protest racism and police brutality.
