Good Evening Folks, Running a bar in Texas is not the easiest thing in the world, especially when it comes to football, so I hope you will all take the stand with me, as of today, we will no longer show ANY NFL games until the league changes it’s domestic abuse policies. It has gotten to the point where money is more important than women’s and children’s health and life are concerned [sic], this is unacceptable in the world that I want to live in. Please join me in my small attempt to stop adding fuel to the fire and money to their coffers. #takeastand #NFL #nomoresbuse
“I’m not trying to make a statement,” said Jack MacDonald, the bar owner. “I’m just a guy that’s doing what he believes in.”
