A New England Patriots fan who was outraged by players’ taking a knee at last Sunday’s game organized a jersey-burning party as his own protest.

A hundred people showed up at Mark Shane’s home in Swansea, Massachusetts, for the event on Thursday night.

Together they tossed Patriots jerseys and t-shirts into a small, contained fire pit while singing America The Beautiful and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

Shane, 61, was one of thousands of fans who watched as several Patriots players took a knee during the National Anthem before their game against the Houston Texans on September 24.

He was furious with their protest and considered it a sign of disrespect to the country, the same view held by President Trump.

On Monday, he announced his plan to host his own peaceful protest of their protest.

‘If you have a Patriots jersey please bring it so we can burn it. This is our right to protest what they did.’
The next day, he placed a picket sign in his front yard announcing the event and was thrilled by the turnout on Thursday.

‘I think it was a great success. I think people were united, I think people love our country and I think it sends a great message to the NFL and any divisive type actions will not be tolerated during sports,’ he told local CBS affiliate WBZ.

Many of those who attended the party were veterans. They complained that the NFL protests disrespect the sacrifices they made for the country during their service.
