A very popular Monmouth County tavern is protesting the NFL and holding a fundraiser for our Veterans this Sunday. 

This was posted on Woody's Roadside Tavern's Facebook.

According to News 12, Army veteran Andy Barcellona asked Woody's in Farmingdale to hold the fundraiser and make a statement about the current state of the NFL.

There's a heated debate in this country about NFL players choosing to kneel during the playing of the National Anthem. Those who kneel are doing so to protest racism and say they have the right to do so. Others feel that the kneeling is disrespectful to our Country and to those who serve and have served.

Owner Chris Maltese told News 12:

Most bar decisions are not easy, but we talked about it and it was the right thing to do. It was an easy decision.

Army veteran Andy Barcellona added:

I don’t think these football players have any idea of what they’re doing. I don’t think they’ve ever had to sacrifice anything. I think they’ve lived a privileged life and it’s hurtful.

Money raised during Sunday's event will benefit the Green Beret Fund. 20% of Woody's food sales will be donated to help veterans.
