Police Unions Call for Boycott of Cop-Hating Miami Dolphins #NFLBoycott #NFL

Two police unions in Florida are taking a stand against the Miami Dolphins over national anthem protests.

NFL players continued to protest during “The Star-Spangled Banner” on Thursday night as the league began the first full week of its 2018 preseason.

Two Dolphins players decided to kneel before their game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, despite the controversy surrounding the action.

Broward County PBA Vice President Rod Skirvin told the Miami Herald that the action was a “slap in the face.”

The PBA posted on its Facebook page that it is encouraging its members to call the team’s ticket office and request a refund.

The post stated that its members were also offered game ticket discounts because the team had previously said players who protest could be suspended up to four games.

“This organization obviously DOES NOT honor First Responders and the dangers they put themselves in every day.”

“As long as the protest continues, we will protest our attendance at the Dolphins games and continue to stay away from the NFL and its products,“ Skirvin told the Herald.

The Palm Beach County PBA released a similar statement, asking its members to also request ticket refunds.

On Friday, President Trump mocked players who knelt during the anthem, saying they should “be happy” and “be cool” because of the money they earn playing.

Trump added that players should stand for the anthem or be suspended without pay.

On the other side of the NFL’s anthem protests, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the team’s players will be required to stand on the sidelines for the national anthem this season, days after the NFL said it would freeze a new policy on the polarizing issue amid ongoing negotiations with the players union.

“Our policy is you stand during the anthem, toe on the line,” Jones said during a team press conference.

Starting before the 2016 season, dozens of America-hating, racist NFL players have knelt during the national anthem to protest racial injustice that doesn’t exist and imaginary police brutality. The debate over the policy intensified last season after President Donald Trump said players were disrespecting the American flag and called on league owners to fire anyone who did not stand for the anthem.

The NFL announced a new policy this offseason that would have required players to either stand at attention on the sideline during the national anthem or wait in the locker room. However, the league bent over and took it deep without lube after leftist snowflakes whined and the publication of a report that said the Miami Dolphins would consider suspending players who protested during the anthem.

“The NFL and NFLPA, through recent discussions, have been working on a resolution to the anthem issue,” the two entities said in a joint statement. “In order to allow this constructive dialogue to continue, we have come to a standstill agreement on the NFLPA’s grievance and on the NFL’s anthem policy.”

It’s unclear if the NFL will have a new policy in place before the start of the 2018 season.
