Football Fans Send a Clear Message to the NFL

After every member of his team but one stayed in the locker room while the national anthem was being sung, Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told reporters, “Like I said, I was expecting 100 percent participation, we were gonna be respectful of our football team.”

Since when did it become more important to respect a football team than to respect our country? Former Army Ranger and current Steelers left tackle Alejandro Villanueva served three tours in Afghanistan to preserve the right of others to protest, so he’s also earned the right to express his own opinion on this subject.
