"Boycott the NFL", which has 220,000 followers going into the weekend, added that its members plan to resist watching as long as "millionaire football players" protest the national anthem.

The tavern's management says it was honoring Veterans Day this weekend by not showing the games, amid the ongoing controversy over NFL players kneeling during the national anthem.

"We're sending the National Football League, its corporate sponsors, and the television networks a message this Veterans Day weekend!" said conservative group 2ndVote.

The NFL policy indicates that players "should" stand during the anthem, but has no mandatory requirements. So far, 22,000 people have indicated on Facebook that they will turn off the TV for games.

The protests during the national anthem were started by Colin Kaepernick as a way to shine light on social injustices brought against African-Americans.

Even players who had been protesting most of the season stood for the anthem this week, including the Seahawks Michael Bennett, who stood before Thursday night's game.

Current NFL policy states that players should stand for the national anthem.

Lavonte David No. 54 of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers kneels on the ground after an National Football League game against the Buffalo Bills on October 22, 2017, at New Era Field in Orchard Park, N.Y. He also stood with teammates for the first time since President Donald Trump criticized players for protesting.

The number of 49ers kneeling during the anthem dropped from four to two on Sunday as safety Eric Reid and wide receiver Marquise Goodwin knelt in protest of racial inequality in the country.

The president and other critics argued that the playing of the national anthem was the wrong time for protests, regardless of the reason, because the song represents US national unity and respect for those who serve in the military.
