ESPN Radio Refuses to Play ECU Game Because Band Members Kneeled During Anthem
A few days ago, East Carolina Pirates band members decided to show support for San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and his movement by kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem.
Those band members were promptly boo’d off the field by their home fans at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium on Saturday.
On Tuesday, ESPN Fayetteville radio announced they would not be playing their games because the band members were disrespectful.
