Rochelle Park Post 170 Stand on NFL protests

Sunday, September 24th, 2017 @ 10:27AM

BCAL Team,
   I just want you to know how strongly I feel about this issue and what stand I have taken at Post 170. We need to send a strong message to the NFL and others that we will not support this type of conduct from those making millions on revenues that come from our pockets.
   It is time to stand up to the bull.

RE: NFL teams kneeling for the National Anthem
As commander, I have decided that those teams who allow their players to not stand and ignore the playing of our national anthem, will not have their games played on post TV’s. Below is the current list of teams whose games will not be televised on Post TVs, (as other teams allow this behavior to happen they will be added to the list and if teams take action to stop this type of behavior they will be removed from the list.
I hope that you understand this decision and agree with this decision? I know that football is a favorite sport of many of you and that you often come to the post to watch the games and enjoy the comraderie and fun being together brings and it is my hope that you will continue to come down and watch other games were the teams stand for our anthem.
The impact of this decision is that this past Thursday we did not have the game on as the 49ers and Raiders are on the list and Sunday the Giant game will not be on because the Eagles are on the list but come down and watch the Jets which are on the same time.
Thanks for your understanding and continued support of the post.
