Miami, Florida, Police Call for Mass Return of Dolphins Tickets After NFL Anthem Protests Renew

Police officers in Miami, Florida, are calling for Miami Dolphins fans to return their tickets after the players once again protested against the country during the national anthem last week.

The Broward County Police Benevolent Association asked members to return their tickets to send a powerful message to the NFL that real Americans love our country and respect our first responders.

In addition, the police union in Broward County cancelled participation in a discount ticket program with the Dolphins because the players have once again begun their anti-American protests.

The union posted a Facebook message on Friday, August 10, reading:

The Broward County PBA recently offered our members discounts to a Miami Dolphins game because that franchise said they were going to honor all First Responders.

We entered into this partnership with the understanding that the Dolphins organization would require their players to stand for the National Anthem.

This did not happen at last night’s preseason game against Tampa Bay.

As a result, the BCPBA will no longer participate in this ticket program, and we are asking all of our members, as well as members of the Dade County PBA and Palm Beach County PBA, not to participate either.

If you have already purchased tickets to this game, we encourage you to call the Dolphins ticket office to request a refund because this organization obviously DOES NOT honor First Responders and the dangers they put themselves in every day.

During last Wednesday’s preseason game, several members of the Dolphins protested during the anthem. Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills and receiver Albert Wilson took a knee during the anthem, while defensive end Robert Quinn raised a militant black power fist as the nation’s theme played.

Naturally, former NFL player Colin Kaepernick celebrated the Dolphins for their display of hate for America:

So did Kaepernick’s friend and former teammate, Eric Reid:

But President Donald Trump had a different reaction. Trump slammed the NFL and the players for their anti-American foolishness:

The NFL players are at it again – taking a knee when they should be standing proudly for the National Anthem. Numerous players, from different teams, wanted to show their “outrage” at something that most of them are unable to define. They make a fortune doing what they love…

Be happy, be cool! A football game, that fans are paying soooo much money to watch and enjoy, is no place to protest. Most of that money goes to the players anyway. Find another way to protest. Stand proudly for your National Anthem or be Suspended Without Pay!
