End Zone Militia denied permission to join Patriots parade

BOSTON — Some very familiar faces at Patriots home games are feeling a bit snubbed ahead of the rolling rally.

Members of the End Zone Militia who help celebrate Patriots touchdowns tell FOX25 they were told they could not participate in the victory parade as they have in year's past.

The militia is hoping for a Hail Mary and a change of heart. The group's leader tells FOX25 he's extremely disappointed in the decision to leave them out of Tuesday's celebration.

At the parade two years ago, the group walked the route leading a duck boat.

FOX25 has reached out to the City of Boston and the New England Patriots to find out why the group has been denied from participating. The City of Boston got back to FOX25 Tuesday morning and said it was not their decision.
