NFL fan burns tickets to next weeks Giants vs. Chargers game in protest: Video


“The end of an era. I’m sad to see it happen but I’m sad to see what happened to America even more.”

(INTELLIHUB) An NFL fan by the name of Brendan Finn burned a pair of tickets to next weeks to next weeks New York Giants vs. Los Angeles Chargers game in protest of players recent disrespect for their country’s flag.

The game is set to take place at East Rutherford’s MetLife Stadium on Oct. 8 and will likely be the setting of major media controversy as others join Finn on his quest.

“I’ve been a Giants ticketholder for many, many, years — been going since the 80’s — I can’t go anymore,” Finn said. “I have all the respect for the NFL players who still respect the flag in our country but I just can’t pay and I can’t watch this happen.

Before Finn lit the tickets ablaze with an outdoor butane lighter he took a moment to explain why he was wearing a shirt in the video in remembrance of a friend of his, a police officer, 69 Precinct, who was shot and killed while on-duty.

“There are thousands of cops just like him who gave their lives for this country and these people want to sit down and protest against cops, I’m burning my tickets,” he said.

“It’s a sad day,” he explained as he watched them burn. “The end of an era. I’m sad to see it happen but I’m sad to see what happened to America even more.”
