Skip to comments.Boycotting the Super Bowl - Veterans, bars, even a bowling alley are saying 'no' to the big game

A growing number of Americans have decided they have better things to do with their time on Super Bowl Sunday than support a professional football league that doesn't have the decency to honor the national anthem.
American Legion and VFW posts, restaurants and bars, and even a bowling alley have decided they will not broadcast the Super Bowl game in their establishments -- out of respect for veterans and law enforcement.
A giant electronic sign outside the Oneota Veterans Club in New York reads, In honor of our country, our flag, our veterans."
The Knights of Columbus chapter in Longview, Texas decided to end a decades-old tradition of broadcasting the game -- over their "disgust" with the national anthem protests.
"The veterans are especially aggravated by the course of events. This especially hits us as an insult when people are disrespectful of our flag and national anthem," chapter member Vance Lowery told television station KLTV.
VFW posts across the country have also joined the national Super Bowl Sunday boycott.

We watched the Kitten Bowl, which is now in rerun.
I think the Puppy Bowl is on later.
This is great news! There are people I know who have cancelled Super Bowl parties that they’ve been having for years.
Any predictions. That is about the half time show?
Ill bet there will be a not so subtle warning directed against Trump.
I’ll be binge watching KDramas instead of watching the game.
I hope to see some of the Puppy Bowl.
Super Bowl? Hahahahahahahahahahahaha.....
NO - Die, NFL. Die.
Won’t miss ya one bit.
No Fans Left
Not For Long
National Felon’s League
Finally, some strong real men out there.
We’re going to walk on the beach (yeah, it’s been mid-70s here), and watch little birds run back and forth near the waves. They don’t take a knee, and are more entertaining. NFL stands for Nothing Football League until they clean house.
Going to the gun range
Don’t watch. Sink NBC’s ratings!!
I went quail hunting this morning, and there were a lot of other hunters out as well. Most Sundays I might see one or two others out there, but today I had to pass by three of my regular areas because someone was there before me.
Ooh, I’m jealous. Can’t afford to spend the fees nor the cost of replacement ammo these days.
Have fun and be safe!
Bump to that
Really nice piece behind the scenes of, ‘The Puppy Bowl - 2018.’
They are also going to start a ‘Dog Bowl’ to get older dogs adopted, too. :)
Im going to shop for ammo and fill some mags.
I have watched the super bowl religiously since the start in the 60s.
I refused to watch it last year and this year due to knee- monia.
I havent watch any NFL for these past 2 years except the very beginning of last year. Goodell and his league of miscreants can sit and rotate.
Good for you. There are far batter things to do with your time.
I’ll be watching Antifa VS BLM game as soon as I learn to juggle flaming chainsaws while roller skating.
