A Greenville County restaurant owner says he won't be showing NFL games until players stop protests during the national anthem.

"NFL will never be played at Palmetto Ale House until all players pay respect to our flag and to our country!" restaurant owner David McCraw told WYFF News 4 on Sunday.

McCraw's decision comes amid national controversy reignited by President Donald Trump saying NFL players who kneel during the national anthem should be fired.

In response to the President's comments, more than 200 NFL players sat or knelt during the national anthem Sunday. Meanwhile, the Steelers, Titans and Seahawks stayed in their locker rooms during the anthem.
