Pittsburgh Steelers To Skip National Anthem, Remain In Locker Room

Many NFL teams have been issuing statements voicing their displeasure after President Trump called for NFL owners to suspend or fire players who protested the national anthem.

But according to Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin the Steelers will just skip the national anthem altogether and remain in the locker room.

    Best way to defuse this non -issue is to have Tim Tebow and others kneel right in front of the ‘kneeling players’ and thank them for joining him in prayer at this time !Have him say a brief prayer and end with a loud AMEN. That would get these players attention and reframe the whole ‘movement’. Of course it might get their jock straps in a twist, but honestly, who cares ~

    The issue is how much damage is caused before the reversal.

    Hopefully the fans will stay home or play video games instead. I’d boycott, but I’ve never watched a football game in my life.

    Yes, poverty stricken players, have sacrificed their time from beating their wives and taking drugs, to show their contempt for Hitler Trump.

    I hope fans dump garbage on them from the stands. Set fires in the seats, that sort of thing. You know, protesting. D batteries are great projectiles.
