Borio’s Restaurant Stops Showing NFL Games Over National Anthem Protests
One central New York restaurant is banning the NFL after players chose to kneel, lock arms in unity or stay in the locker room during the National Anthem Sunday.
Borio's Restaurant in Cicero will stop airing NFL games until 'this show of disrespect ends.'
A sign was posted saying Borio's was thankful to be in America, but 'due to the recent decision of staying in the locker room during our country's National Anthem, the Borio family will no longer show the NFL in our restaurant.'
'If and when this show of disrespect ends, we will be happy to show this product on our restaurant again.'
There was one Pittsburgh Steeler player who stood for the National Anthem with his hand over his heart at the end of the tunnel; former Army Ranger Alejandro Villanueva.
Villnueva's teammates were behind him but unseen, further into the tunnel. The team did not stay in the locker room as many first thought.
