A Florida labor union representing police officers in Broward County is calling on its members to send the Miami Dolphins a powerful message.
The Broward County Police Benevolent Association cancelled participation in a discount ticket program with the NFL franchise after some players refused to stand for the national anthem at a preseason game.
“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,” a statement posted on Facebook read.
“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,” it continued.
The Broward County PBA announced it would no longer take part in the program and asked its members to follow suit.
“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,” the statement read.
