Vin Scully on anthem protests: 'I will never watch another NFL game'

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Retired Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully is taking a stand against the NFL national anthem protests.

Scully said that he "will never watch another NFL game" because he's so disappointed by the protests and he has "overwhelming respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war."
