What were they thinking?
It’s a WINGS place, right?
Don’t they normally watch a LOT of sports at wings places?
Did they notice how ratings cratered when Kaepernick started that knee thing?
Not to mention the heat ESPN has taken for giving politics a voice on a sports network.
So why, oh why, would they put themselves in the middle of a controversy that involved … of all things… the Anthem?
So on the anniversary of 911 when 2996 people gave their lives because of an act of war or terrorism the manager at the…

When he was asked why, the employee — who was not identified – said the anthem is too controversial, and it was company policy not to play it.
“No one understood what was so controversial. It’s 9/11, it’s a sporting event, why is it controversial?” she said. —CBSLA
So… what happened?
The franchise owner also apologized in a statement and said the company has ‘no policy regarding the matter’.
How satisfied are you with that response?
Is ‘no policy’ a fair response of denial, distancing themselves from the claims of the unnamed employee?
Or is it a cop-out, when the right response to an insulting move like that should be a strong affirmation of their support of the Anthem?
Were you hoping for something more like the SOLID stand that Pieology took when they heard one of their employees had done something to massively offend the public?
Long story short… are you satisfied with the BWW management’s statement?
Have you eaten there before? Will you eat there now?
Or is this whole thing just a tempest in a teapot?
