Amid the ongoing controversy surrounding the NFL and players kneeling during the National Anthem, one key figure in the world of sports is vowing to never watch football again.
Famed L.A. Dodgers Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully spoke publicly on the issue of the anthem before games and made the decree that he’s officially done watching football. The 89-year-old sportscaster was giving a speech at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California on Saturday when, according to ESPN, he was asked about the protests.
“During the fall and winter, I watch the NFL on Sunday, and it’s not that I’m some great patriot. I was in the Navy for a year, didn’t go anywhere, didn’t do anything, but I have overwhelming respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war. So the only thing that I can do in my little way is to not to preach; I will never watch another NFL game.”[contentcards url=”http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2017/11/05/vin-scully-vows-never-to-watch-another-nfl-game-amid-protest-controversy.html” target=”_blank”]
