FORT MYERS, Fla. – Another Southwest Florida restaurant is taking a stand against the NFL’s player protests.

Caloosahatchee Jack’s Bar and Grill in Fort Myers posted on Facebook Tuesday that "we are standing with our troops, veterans and first responders.  This year we will not be getting the NFL ticket.”

Instead, every Sunday they will be offering a 20% discount for all veterans, active military, and first responders.

On Monday, we told you about Nevermind bar in Cape Coral.  They won't be showing NFL games either.  The owner tells Fox 4 that after seeing players kneeling during the National Anthem as a call for racial justice last season, and then again during pre-season, he decided he was done airing the games.
