A High School Football Team Decided To Take A Knee For The Anthem, So The Refs Taught Them A Lesson

Ever since former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a knee to protest police brutality and racial injustice, his protest has taken like wildfire. People who support his cause have joined him, kneeling during the national anthem, to raise awareness around the issue. But those who feel patriotic about the flag and who have pride in the United States military are not happy about this form of protest because they feel it is an insult to America.
The football team from Monroe High School decided to take part in Kaepernick’s protest. Many of the players took a knee during the playing of the national anthem before the game. But as soon as the players dropped down during the Star-Spangled Banner, the game’s two referees knew they needed to participate in their own form of protest. According to them, they were unwilling to sit by and watch the high schoolers disrespect America like that. So they walked off the field and quit..

New Jersey football officials left the field when they watched players take a knee during the pregame ceremony. The referees to stage the counter-protest were 54-year-old Ernie Lunardelli and 27-year-old Anthony Lunardelli.

Ernie was outraged to watch teens taking a knee in protest during the anthem.

“I’m not in favor of anyone disrespecting our country, our flag, the armed forces,” Ernie said, according to //NJ.com. “What they’re protesting has nothing to do with the national anthem, and I’m against it, so I decided to protest for them kneeling, and that’s what I did.”

  1. Sorry punks. Probably most everything they have the people of America paid for it and the rest of what they have is probably stolen. Cut off their welfare checks and they may develop a better attitude.
