Another Southwest Florida restaurant is taking a stand against NFL 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 percent discount for all veterans, active military and first responders.

On Monday, Nevermind Awesome Bar & Eatery in Cape Coral said they be won't be showing NFL games either.  

The owner said that after seeing players kneel during the national anthem last season, and then again during pre-season, he decided he was done airing the games.
