Lots of Empty Seats Spotted at Packers-Bears Game

The Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers have been playing one another for decades and have the oldest rivalry in pro football.

Photos posted on social media show that there were a number of empty seats for Sunday’s game.

The photos were taken during different parts of the game, including halftime, kickoff, and 30 minutes before.

The New York Jets-Tampa Bay Bucs game at Raymond James Stadium also had a number of empty seats.

And the Tennessee Titans game had a similar situation.

It came after NFL Players Association had asked all players to observe a two-minute moment of silence before games to honor veterans. It, however, didn’t make it mandatory, according to a recent statement.

The NFL and NFLPA issued a statement on Saturday about Veterans Day, according to the Washington Times in a report on Saturday, Nov. 11.

The NFL and NFLPA said on Saturday, “There has been no change in the current policy regarding the anthem,” saying NFL players “should” stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner.” It, however, doesn’t make a requirement for them to stand, the Times reported.

Boycott the NFL, a Facebook page with more than 227,000 followers, called on fans to turn the games off on Sunday and Monday “in solidarity with veterans around the country,” and other conservative watchdog groups asked fans to do the same.

“We’re sending the National Football League, its corporate sponsors, and the television networks a message this Veterans Day weekend!” added conservative group 2ndVote. “Americans are sick of the disrespectful National Anthem protests that the NFL has not only allowed to continue, but has institutionalized in pregame ceremonies.”
