Local Business Owners to Hold NFL Merchandise Burn This Sunday, Collecting Donations for Hurricane Ravaged Puerto Rico

BROOKSVILLE – A pair of neighboring businesses are planning to host a public event this weekend in celebration of the National Anthem and American Flag.

Coney Island Drive Inn owner, John Lee and American Gun and Pawn owner, Steve Champion, who also serves as Vice Chairman with the Hernando Board of County Commissioners are teaming up this Sunday to celebrate Patriotism and raise goods for the citizens of hurricane ravaged Puerto Rico.

The event has drawn the attention of nearly 600 people who are interested in the event but it’s unknown how many people will attend.

Frustration over the growing number of NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem is what originally set the wheels in motion to hold the event, and that led to the idea of allowing angry former NFL fans to burn merchandise as a show of defiance towards the league.

We spoke to both business owners today about the event and the growing racial divide that seems to have engulfed our country in just a few short months. Lee blames the media for propagating a false narrative and says. “I think they are fueling the fire with the division… The media feeds the fire to their own benefit. They look for talking points to up their ratings and getting people agitated.”Champion agrees and says, “They are trying to control the narrative and if they control the narrative then they will keep pushing this agenda about racism, and we should be past that already.” Champion takes special offense to the NFL’s disrespect of the Anthem and says, “My son is an active duty Marine it offends me that people are kneeling down to the National Anthem.”

Lee tells RNRF that he even discussed the event with a neighboring barber shop that is owned by a Black man, and after a discussing their differences on the issue, the owner told Lee, “Whatever you do I don’t have a problem with it, I know who you are, I’m cool with it.”

Before meeting with Lee and Champion, RNRF received a media release from John Horwitz, Executive Director of The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence that reads in part, “Join us in our fight to expose the NRA for their racist, misogynistic, xenophobic rhetoric…”

Champion responded to the inflammatory announcement, by stating, “That’s ridiculous. They are there to protect our 2nd Amendment right which is everyone’s right, no matter what color you are. As long as you’re not a criminal, you have a right to defend yourself.”

Both owners say the event is a peaceful gathering to celebrate patriotism and to raise money and good for the devastation in Puerto Rico.

A barrel will be available for people to burn their NFL merchandise and there will be free hot dogs to those who bring merchandise.

The Marine Corps will be in attendance to do a presentation on the history of the National Anthem and present the Flag.

Coney Island Drive Inn is located at 1112 East Jefferson Street in Downtown Brooksville. The event is scheduled between 1 and 4 p.m. while NFL games are in play.

Both owners hope that anyone protesting their event will remain peaceful.

And lets not forget this how many of us sat our butts in the dark a few weeks ago ? Walk away from the NFL and do something Useful.

  • im going to get a couple of hot dogs and buy something from this pawn shop. good for them. anyone who support these terrorist NFL players and teams should be deported. protest is one thing but to disgrace is another.

    Sunday, 1 October 2017, 3:38 pm
  • So Tom are you doing a update on this story ? I mean free hotdogs what 30 cents to a 15 dollar jersey burn. Plus you have Steve the guy who say NFL players have a silver spoon . Hummm coming from Steve who was given and gives his kids the silver spoon. Yet last time I checked there are thousands of College players who trained and work out everyday to get in the NFL. Yet they have a silver spoon. Champion is a joke.

  • You rinability to comprehend is somehow my fault?

    Your argument didn’t hold water, it’s nonsense.

    Unless you’re a sheep who believes everything Rush tells them, I guess then i could understand how one could be so misguided.

    • Jimbo….You make no sense at all.You appear in a discussion with an imaginary friend..Whom are you responding to and what is Casper talking about? Help us out here….

  • I understand that the NFL’s athletes have the right to a non-violent protest of their views; political or otherwise. However, I feel that they could have used a better platform to express their concerns/issues, rather than taking a knee during the national anthem. With the social media krase that engulfs society today, I feel the player’s could have chosen a better avenue to discuss their viewpoints, and still have reached the desired outcome (conversation/reform of social/racial inequality) without incurring the widespread backlash of offending the military, police officers, first responders, etc…If we can remember, it was Colin Kaepernick who first took a knee in protest, all he did was derail what might have been an important message by wearing police pig socks and a Castro t-shirt, which offended the ‘silent majority’, and further supported, if not directly than indirectly, the violent protests of ‘Black Lives Matter’ and other groups who assassinated police officers. I understand that there are some bad apples in the police force, and there have been instances of abuse of power and discrimination, but supporting violent disobedience and disregard for law enforcement isn’t the way for a sensible outcome or a peaceful resolution. Violence begets violence.

  • The Reality is that this is a small county where the majority of its inhabitants are undereducated, overrated, self obsessed & pathetically ignorant of the world outside of their 4 walls. So their view is dark, dank & tainted.

    However, as more new “blood” moves in, and brings with them the true reality of humanism & hopefully true Christian behavior, this county will no longer be able to hide behind ignorance.

    So once more, it’s not about the flag or the anthem, nor the respect of the two.

    So stop fanning “fake” flames.

    • Wasting your breath. This is Brooksville, the lynching capital of the US in the early 20th century. These are the same people who get bent out of shape when Starbucks rolls out a plain red cup or Target lets people choose their bathroom. Let them burn their NFL memorabilia. It is progress after all. Instead of destroying other peoples’ property, they are destroying their own now.

      Sunday, 1 October 2017, 12:27 am
      • Sophia, You r so spot on! 😀👍🏼

        Sunday, 1 October 2017, 1:14 pm
      • So the people that did the lynchings in the early 20th century are getting upset over starbucks red cups and Targets bathroom policies? Would that be all 641 of them in 1900 or all1,011 of them in 1920…either way that is just a small percentage of the population today

  • As I scroll through the comments, I can’t help but laugh at how uneducated and ignorant Jimbo is. He keeps talking about voodoo economics and how bad trump is when this joker can’t even form a a grammatically correct sentence. He doesn’t care about the stable economy and the jobs that have been created, why, because he probably doesn’t work anyway. He wants all the handouts and doesn’t want to contribute a dime to society. It’s all about what everyone else can do for him. It’s not just him, but he’s just a clear example of what is wrong with our country. McDonald’s workers rallying for $15 an hour so they can live better, but are too stupid to realize that everything else will increase as a result and they will continue to live the same lifestyle they do now, but at a higher price. Obama gets praise from the liberals and democrats for his healthcare yet it has single handed LT ruined our healthcare premiums and coverage. High out of pocket costs, higher deductibles, and higher premiums. They don’t care about that because it doesn’t affect them because they don’t pay for it anyway. If trump could do just half of what he wants to do for America we would be much better off by 2020, then we have been in a long time, but unfortunately between demorats and the media he can’t put America first because that makes him a bigot and a racist.

    • Obviously you can’t read. I think your ignorance speaks for itself.
      If you weren’t so brainwashed by the gop, maybe you’d have a relevant fact to offer instead of silly straw man arguments and insults.

  • These overpaid NFL players are using the wrong platform for their hatred of cops. Why protest the American anthem during a football game which they are paid to play, politics aside? Why don’t these players protest on their own time not during a game which fans pay to see? I know if I started to spew hatred towards the police at my place of work I would be canned in a heartbeat! What I’m getting at is these players are at their JOB on the customers (fans) dollar so why shouldn’t they be treated like anybody else who has a job but has to keep their mouth shut till they clock out?!?!

    Saturday, 30 September 2017, 1:54 pm
    • They hate cops? Or they wasn’t equitable treatment?

      Geez, you faux patriots are just nauseating with your blatant inability to think clearly.

      • Their grievance is with the police Jimbo. Lets keep it off the field!! Thank you for the insult though as it fits well with the liberal mentality. Can’t discuss a topic when your on the losing end then let the insults fly right Jimbo?

        Saturday, 30 September 2017, 7:09 pm
        • Lol, you get all upset when your arguments don’t hold water and you take it all personally. Sorry, but I wouldn’t protest like that, but these guys felt it was the best way. It’s not that complicated.

          Sunday, 1 October 2017, 1:51 am
      • Well Jimbo…The wasn’t equitable treatment has me baffled…Could you recapitulate?

        Saturday, 30 September 2017, 9:31 pm
        • Want, sorry.

          Sunday, 1 October 2017, 2:03 am
    • Not a hatred of cops but a disappointment in the lack of equality in the justice system as well.

      It’s a knee in the ground, they aren’t Turning their backs or spitting on the flag.

      But by all means, burn your NFL gear and cancel your NFL tv subscription. Those players have made so much money that they will NEVER be hurting and probably laughing As they park their $300,000 Cars in their multimillion dollar mansions.

      They are simply protesting and bring attention to a more fair system. Especially for those who have no voice.

      Saturday, 30 September 2017, 10:50 pm
      • Well, I would like to give you facts Dana.
        2 years post retirement 78% of NFL player file bankruptcy. No more mansions and no more 300k cars.
        54.4% of NFL players are raised by single mothers. 54.4% grew up in extreme poverty.57% of NFL players are functionally illiterate. A NFL player is arrested on the average of evey 7 days. Crimes against humanity such as assault ,domestic abuse Mr. Westbrook from the Rams was just arrested why??? Well he had a loaded stolen gun. Now ask yourself is the the officers fault that stopped him? We just had 2 white males shot by deputies here in Hernando County was there protest no….Why?,well first it had nothing to do with injustice of those filthy pigs or the poor repressed black folks…It had to do with the actions of the individual.So if you believe the system is not fair, you have slanted views. The system is not perfect and never will be that is a fact of life. We should all strive to be better people…A little kinder a little more caring and a little more giving. But protesting OUR FLAG and OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM is not acceptable in a place of employment. If you think it is okay…Go enjoy one of own our men and women arrive home in Dover. Delaware below that flag and it will humble you to the injustice of the world.

    Poor little snowflakes, but hey, they are endangering our lives, healthcare, security, because of their lack of common sense; And, our lack of voting for decent people.

You don’t see the NFL Player’s stepping on the flag. Beer cans for all you drunks, I’m sure during memorial day, 4th of July, they have a American flag on the cans. Do you still buy it and throw away your cans? Do you save them? Soda drinkers same for you?

  • I’m all for it, and salute you guys and the stand you’re taking. GO FOR IT!! Something needs to be done to stop the liberal media who is out to destroy our president and our country. Piece by piece, they are dismantling our government, and our Constitution by fueling the liberal lunatics who are walking the streets and wiping out American history, just ‘because they are offended’. Poor babies…GROW THE HELL UP, life is not a kiddie playground. You cannot push somebody off the seesaw or the swing that you want. You cannot punch or deck the brat that took the ball from you. You HAVE to grow up sometime, and accept the fact that you don’t ALWAYS get what you want in life….and oh well. You have to learn to deal with it, like everybody else does. GET OVER THE FACT THAT HILARY LOST. The ‘BEST MAN’ won. So now its time to grow the hell up, and MOVE ON. Get over it and NOW would be a GREAT

    Friday, 29 September 2017, 8:34 pm

  • This is awesome, screw the overpaid player’s, don’t buy their merchandise, and if you go to a game WEAR A PATRIOTIC SHIRT,,

    • explain something to me. People cry about people wanting to take Monuments about confederate soldiers that promoted an Insurrection, and call them snowflakes that need safe spaces. Yet when someone only takes a knee, the same people cry being offended. Wouldnt that make you a snowflake too?

      Is your Patriotism so shallow and weak that a simple act of taking a knee disturbs you?

      • Hey John the NFL is using the wrong platform for their hatred of cops. Why protest the American anthem during a football game which they are paid to play, politics aside? Why don’t these players protest on their own time not during a game which fans pay to see? I know if I started to spew hatred towards the police at my place of work I would be canned in a heartbeat! What I’m getting at is these players are at their JOB on the customers (fans) dollar so why should they be treated like anybody else who has a job but has to keep their mouth shut till they clock out?!?!

        • Most players do contribute to their local areas, hometowns, etc.

          Professional athletes are extremely driven, focused and motivated. If they did your job, you’d be replaced.

          Just because they aren’t doing it the way you want and are hurting your little feelings, doesn’t mean they are wrong.

          If you really had common sense, you wouldn’t be spouting off about stuff you don’t understand. I know it’s the trump and gop way, it’s just annoying for those of us who really love our country.

          • As I said in my previous comment I won’t stoop to your level of name calling. I am very well educated in the facts and most Americans agree just play ball and keep the politics off the field. If they want a platform I’m sure CNN or MSNBC would love to get their message out to you and the other people who watch those channels. No I didn’t vote for Trump or Hillary. I am a Libertarian. Have a great evening

            • Your comments don’t demonstrate a grasp of facts. Sorry. Your spin doesn’t work.

              • Jimbo in my previous post I said nothing about most players contributing to their communities so please learn to comprehend.What I did say is keep the politics off the field. SIMPLE! If they want to protest do what everyone else does grab a sign and hit the streets..

      • I guess you are one of the pathetic losers that have never felt the pride swell up in your chest when our national anthem is played.

        • I cry like a baby every time. It’s about what we fought/fight for. I’m very white. I don’t really understand them, but I understand basic right and wrong.

        • I feel pride for our Country. I just do not feel like patriotism is a penis measuring contest. I do not need to wave a flag, scream the loudest to feel patriotic. I also played the Athem in my School’s marching band AND I am an Eagle Scout.

  • What kinds of goods are they accepting for Puerto Rico and how do they intend to get the donated items there? I would be happy to donate all the items in my Hurricane closet- just need to know what they are accepting. Thanks! And good for them for finding a way to address both issues because both are important each and of themselves.

  • Defiance to the league, really? He makes his money by selling products of NFL sponsors. Let’s see him change his menu to fit his beliefs. Oh wait, let’s get my five minutes before everyone realizes what a shame I am.

  • People have a right NOT to Respect people, Ideology, or groups. They DO NOT have a right to Direspect anything. Disrespect is an action and can be construed as assault wether on ones beliefs or person and can be met with physical force to stop such action. I will use any and all force to defend myself and family!

    • I have no idea what point you are trying to make, unless of course the point is, that you are an absolute moron.
      Firstly, you say that people have a right to not respect anything they like, but they do not have a right to disrespect anything. A little clue, disrespect is to not respect something, they are the same thing.
      Secondly, for you to think that disrespect can be construed as assault is one of the most asinine things I have heard in a long while. I would like to see you explain that one to the judge, “Sir, why did you hit him?”, “Well he disrespected me.”. I’m sure you’ll walk away from that one scot-free.
      I’ll clue you in, that last sentence was sarcasm. You don’t seem bright enough to pick up on it.
      I don’t know what side of this flag issue you are on, but whatever it is, I am on the other side. I don’t want anyone to think I could ever think the same as you.
