    Well I was ashamed and embarrassed as a life long fan, and thought the steelers organization was better than this. I agree with Trump they should stand and do there protest off the field. If they really care- they would go to the court rooms in the off season or show there support in many other ways. NFL needs to stay out of politics. They allowed this behavior to happen– they can stop it. And just to set things straight I do stand with the kneelers and agree with their politics but I do not think it belongs in the anthem or at the game. I would like it to be left outside.

    Like in all families, there is sometimes misunderstanding and disappointments. I admit I was not proud of the Steelers last Sunday. For the 1st time in my life I was shocked by their behavior . While I still loved them, I did not like them very much and banned football from my home last Sunday. While it is hard to fathom that not one person in the whole organization had an inkling of how hiding out in the tunnel would be perceived, I will choose to accept their explanation of their intent. We all make mistakes. A better way may have been to explain what your intentions were and then to apologize for any hurt caused. However unintentional, people were hurt deeply. Our flag drapes the coffins of the brave men and women that gave all they had for each one of us. I can only imagine how their families felt.

    Then they should have left the political stand somewhere else other then a field I’ve been a fan of the steelers 37 years I ha e a tattoo of them up my arm and I’m considering of getting it covered up. I’m having a hard time with this the team should have went out and stood with a man who served this great country no matter what some one said but my team like so many others looked like a bunch of babies. I’m heart broken I win and lose with them every week I catch hell because of being a fan now I’m really starting to hate pro sports ………over paid babies
