The Oil City VFW Post has dropped all televised airings of professional sporting events at its club on Relief Street in protest of what the commander terms as "lack of respect for the nation, the flag, the national anthem and the movement against police" as players take a knee on the sidelines prior to a game.

In a vote last week, about a dozen Oil City VFW Post 464 members passed a motion offered by a club officer to stop airing the sporting events.
