Respect Anthem, Letter To

Teams Owners, NFL Advises

By JIM KEVLIN • Special to www.AllOTSEGO.com

COOPERSTOWN – Until the NFL and team owners prevent  players from “taking a knee” during the National Anthem, pro football will not be shown in the Cooperstown Vets Club on Main Street, Commander John Famulare said this afternoon.

The decision was made unanimously, 8-0, when the club’s directors were polled at their latest meeting last Monday.  It may be the first such decision by any post nationwide.

“When they play the National Anthem,” said Famulare, “you better stand up, period.”  He said the ban will remain in place “until the players start acting like men” and show respect for the National Anthem.
