A Florida restaurant owner claims he won’t be purchasing the NFL Sunday Ticket Package which cost upwards of 5,000 dollars. But he also has a twist.
Brooksville Beef O’Brady’s owner, Curtis West told his customers the money that would have been spent on purchasing the season package for football will allow him to offer 40 percent off for military veterans during Sunday visits.
West also said he didn’t believe the players meant to disrespect veterans but kneeling during the National Anthem was disrespectful and he wasn’t going to promote that at Beef O’Brady’s.

Last year, with the kneeling and the disrespect to our veterans and our flag and our country, I was very upset,” West told the station.
West hung up posters alerting his customers of the change.
“Beef O’Brady’s will not be financially supporting the NFL this year due to their lack of compassion and gratitude for our American service members,” the poster read. “Our National Anthem is one of the methods we as American citizens have always used to show our appreciation to all military service members, past or present, alive or dead. This tradition deserves respect and unfortunately, the NFL does not feel that same way. So, for this season, we will not be purchasing the NFL ticket. Perhaps, it will make a difference if it hits their wallets.”
West said he didn’t believe the players intended to disrespect veterans with their protest.
West will still play local games if they are available but it won’t be through an NFL package. He doesn’t want to fuel that beast.
