N.F.L.: Steelers Plan to Stay in
Locker Room During Anthem

New York Times, by Ken Belson*

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 9/24/2017 11:50:59 AM

N.F.L. players and owners, already on edge after critical statements made by President Trump at a rally on Friday night, woke up on game day to another series of tweets from the president, this time calling for football fans to boycott N.F.L. games unless the league fires or suspends players who refuse to stand for the national anthem. (Snip) Steelers Won’t Participate in Anthem The Pittsburgh Steelers team does not plan to emerge from the locker room in Chicago until after the national anthem. “We’re not going to play politics,” Tomlin told CBS. “We’re football players, we’re football coaches. We’re not participating

Comments:
This is shameful, disgraceful and appalling! This is extremely disturbing. You can just see their next goal, that the National Anthem not be played at all. We sure are heading down a really dark road in this country and it´s extremely upsetting.

They can stay wherever they damn well please.

Without the American people who are their fans, fill their stadiums, watch their games on TV, wear their shirts and caps, they are nothing. Absolutely nothing. Just a bunch of big babies suited up in bizarre uniforms chasing each other up and down the field with a pointy ball. That’s all.

American Greatness’s Chris Buskirk did a great article on how Kaepernick and Curry (NBA) have burst the sports bubble. Just posted. It and this article are well worth a read.

e won´t know until the dust settles, but it seems to me the owners and the NFL are not on the "right side of history" here.

Perhaps if they had a third foot, they´d shoot that, too?

It´s now up to fans to do what Trump suggested, get up and walk out. How many, after paying hundreds of dollars to be there, are going to do that? Plus, there´s more players not kneeling. What about them? Trumps got the owners between a rock and a hard place. They, obviously, need the fans money, but they can´t afford to have the players take the next step, which is to refuse to play. They have no one to blame but themselves, because they let it get this far by humouring these protesters in the first place. When you let your product play politics with your brand, on your dime, you´ve joined their side. Live with the consequences.

Jim Gray was just on FNC and said it is shameful that politics has now entered into the NFL, strongly suggesting that it is because of Trump. He didn´t mention that Kaepernick is the one who started this horrific state of affairs.

He and the insufferable Arthel Neville (Obama lover who never hides her bias) agreed. Gray did state that the National Anthem should be respected but that the players had their right to free speech. That is the biggest bunch of BS and lie ever told. They are NOT entitled to free speech as a part of a business, free speech relates to the government as we all know. He also stated that the boycotts (because of Trump) and loss of money would be blamed on him. This is going to get very bad.

It truly pains me, as a lifetime football fan, to say that I am done with the NFL. It will be interesting to see what Rush Limbaugh has to say tomorrow - as the Steelers are his favorite team.

Going to watch golf today, with perhaps a bit of QVC. Next Saturday, Roll Tide!

NFL TV viewers, don´t watch, boycott sponsors.
Ticket holders, cancel season tickets. Others who attend the game, find something else to do like spend quality time with the family.
It would take one season for the NFL front office to catch on. Hit them where it hurts....in the pocketbook. Nothing speaks louder than money.

Because President Trump says something you don´t like doesn´t mean you disrespect the Flag, the National Anthem or the country over it!!

Maybe Americans should plan to stay home from the games and turn the NFL´s 200 million dollar advertising shortfall into a 400 million dollar hole!

While not watching the NFL, one might avoid ordering a Papa John´s pizza, too. On October 15th some may instead call their local outlet and just let them know there will be no pizza ordered today due to their continued support of the NFL as an "Official Sponsor". Pull out a marker, some cardboard and a lawn chair to take the protest to their door. Sorry for the local franchisee taking the financial hit, but that´s how it is.

If they stay in the locker room, maybe the "fans" can stay home. The football stadium is no place for politics. Shame on the owners and the coaches for allowing this to happen. Suppose all of the soldiers decided to stay in the "locker room" when they were told to go out and face an enemy. Where would America be today or it might not be at all.

#11 It pains me to think that for the sale pf watching a football GAME a guy would turn his back on the President for defending the NATIONAL ANTHEM, NATIONAL ANTHEM, could you possibly equate a football game with disrespect for our country out in a public forum to be observed by all of our enemies both foreign and domestic.

Just sit there in the darkened living room and watch the game and pretend that those disrespecting the Anthem for which many bled and died for, is being disrespected by our enemies useful idiots.

FTA:“We’re not going to play politics,” Coach Mike Tomlin told CBS before the game. “We’re football players, we’re football coaches. We’re not participating in the anthem today. Not to be disrespectful to the anthem, but to remove ourselves from this circumstance. People shouldn’t have to choose."

Tomlin´s first part is correct - they are football people. But his attempt to sit on the fence is not. This is an issue liberals have forced on the country and much as people like Tomlin might want to avoid the controversy and just do their jobs, liberals make that impossible. You cannot "not choose".

OP is right. The next demand or act of appeasement by the owners will be to stop playing the anthem altogether. Then Tomlin and the his boys can come out and play their big,tough game without fear of criticism or controversy...until the next "issue".(Hey, maybe the NFL should stop keeping score. It hurts the losing fans´ feelings and sometimes makes them react with violence.) Regardless,I, for one, will not be watching.

There is concept in economics called "substitute" goods - things that can easily replace one thing if the price of that thing gets too high. NFL football is far from a necessity of life. When the price in aggravation gets too high there are many, many substitute goods to fill a Sunday afternoon. I have already found several.

Tend to agree regarding keeping politics out of sports, but what the Steelers did is not the answer. The National Anthem is NOT POLITICS. The National Anthem is about LOYALTY TO ONES COUNTRY.

Grew up outside of Pittsburgh. Started watching the Steelers in 78. In 79 and 80, they won the Super Bowl, and I was hooked. Lifelong Steeler fan here. During winter, I wear a Steeler parka. It is the equivalent of wearing gang colors. Total strangers that are Steeler fans walk up to me cheering on the Steelers. Steeler nation. I´m no longer near Pittsburgh, but whenever the Steelers were televised nationally, I watched them.

This is a major league turnoff, and I´m sure I can find other things on television to watch. Currently watching NASCAR.

NFL, are you listening?

What Trump said was at a political rally which was the correct place for it regardless of whether you agree with him or not. If BLM and its supporters want to make a statement, fine, but do it at a rally not a sporting event.

I believe the contracts with these players have provisions that they are not to act or participate in any way that would demean the Character of their employer, I.E. the team for which they are playing.

The owners have every right to make them sit out or fire them on the spot. These nut cases feel comfortable that they will hurt the team if they are benched and therefore their employers have no choice but to put up with this nonsense.

Money talks! Bench once. Twice and they are out on the street. They are paid for per game. Don´t tell me they won´t bend and fall over if they are stripped of that pay check.

When the MLB went on strike in 1994-1995 it changed the game for ever. Dave Stewart a twenty game winner said "It was one of the most embarrassing moments that´s ever happened to Major League Baseball. I wish I had never come back.´´

Goose Gossage and others left the game and never went back. "The strike got me, man,´´ Gossage told USA TODAY Sports. "It got a bunch of us. We faded in, and we faded out."

"I never did announce my retirement. Even today, 20 years later, I still haven´t announced my retirement." He just walked away!

Unless the NFL owners take a stand and demand respect not only for the game but the country that has given them this opportunity the NFL will never be the same.

As President of the USA, who has sworn an oath to protect this country and who is the representative voice of patriotic Americans, Pres. Trump is but defending the Star Spangled Banner and that for which it stands. Don´t they even know the history of our flag and our national anthem?! How could any President simply ignore these lime-light exhibitionists, PC political pawns that they are, who are viewed by many youths & fans as heroes, when they set examples for such disrespect for this country? ...They have no shame, no respect, no common decency and became terrible role models when they forgot the reason they were on the field and instead chose to insult this country.

#16´s astute observation and profound comment encapsulates the core of this controversy.

Soldier´s Field and Pittsburgh Steelers are names that represent two symbolic historical American forces that one could not imagine refusing to stand for and honor the emblems of American unity and greatness.

NFL team owners and management unfortunately have allowed a mediocre football player to embroil them in a divisive political mess.

Hopefully, most of us recognize and revere the real sacrifice that, by the grace of Almighty God, has built this great nation and preserved what too many misguided Americans take for granted today. Hiding away in a locker room, or corporate offices, or anywhere else does not remove from the fray.

Some sacrificed their health and livelihood, and perhaps more, and some gave all to give us what Americans enjoy today. How shameful is it to not even have the courage to stand and speak out in defense of the emblems that represent that sacrifice?!

At least the mediocre player has the courage of his convictions, even if he may be instigated and supported by those with an anti-America agenda.

God bless you, Steeler #78, Alejandro Villanueva, and thank you for you continued service to the United States of America! So very thankful for you, and others, for your example!

#11, your calling my President a big mouth in this NFL/National Anthem flap is about the most juvenile comment I have ever seen here, and I have seen a lot!

O say can you see by the dawns early light what so proudly we hailed at the twilights last gleaming..whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight oer the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming and the rockets red glare the bombs bursting in air gave proof through the night that our flag was still there O say does that star spangled banner yet wave oer the land of the FREE and the home of the BRAVE....I love this land!

Look´s like the almighty dollar is more sacred to the NFL and team owners than the anthem to this great nation. The anthem and our flag symbolizes the freedoms we have. Many men and women of all races have laid down their lives to keep this country free. For these high paid thugs to show this kind of disrespect is tantamount to spitting on the graves of our fallen heroes. No more NFL or NBA for me!

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce plans to soon announce a proposal for the Trump administration and Congress to raise the federal gas tax by 25 cents per gallon to help pay for an infrastructure package. Chamber President Thomas Donohue told the Washington Post Tuesday that the nation´s biggest business lobby wants “to put our oar in the water” but acknowledged it would be “a tough vote” to raise the gasoline tax for the first time since 1993. “I’ve been pushing this for a long, long time, but now gangs of people are pushing it,” Donohue said. The increase would raise more

A review of a classified document outlining what is described as extensive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act abuse was made available to all House members Thursday and the revelations could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, several sources with knowledge of the document stated. These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates. The House Intelligence Committee passed the motion along party lines Thursday to make the classified report alleging extensive

The House Intelligence Committee on Thursday released a 165-page transcript of testimony given on Nov. 14 by Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. The transcript was released after a unanimous vote by the committee earlier in the day. Last week, the Senate Judiciary Committee released a 312-page transcript of an interview that Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal reporter, gave on Aug. 22. Simpson appeared before both committees after being faced with subpoenas to compel his testimony. He refused to talk about Fusion’s clients or the sources used by former British spy Christopher Steele in the dossier. Though Simpson did not discuss clients, it was

An associate of Arizona Sen. John McCain’s who handled the dossier is asking a federal judge to block the release of a videotape and transcript of a deposition he recently gave in a lawsuit related to the salacious document. David Kramer, a former State Department official and former director at the McCain Institute for International Leadership, filed a motion in federal court in Florida asking a judge for a protective order to block the public release of his deposition.

There are 3.6M ´DREAMers´ — a number

The political debate over the fate of "DREAMers" — undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children — has overlooked just how many there are in the country today: about 3.6 million. That number of people whose lives risk being uprooted is not widely known, in large part because so much public attention has been focused recently on 800,000 mostly young DREAMers accepted into the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. This smaller group of DREAMers is in the spotlight because President Trump terminated DACA in September, saying it was an illegal overreach of executive authority that can only come

An attorney for Trump, Jay Sekulow is furious after the DOJ blamed a “glitch” for withholding ‘missing’ Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting docs from the ACLJ. How convenient. A glitch in the DOJ’s sophisticated software. The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) filed a FOIA lawsuit against the DOJ in order to obtain documents pertaining to the infamous Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting at Phoenix Int’l airport in June of 2016. The DOJ failed to turn over key documents according to ACLJ founder and Trump attorney, Jay Sekulow. Sekulow and the ACLJ team sought to recover the key documents and the Deep State DOJ responded by

L’Oreal, one of the largest beauty supply companies in the world, will feature a woman wearing a hijab in its latest ad campaign. Blogger and model Amena Khan, who will be featured in L’Oreal Paris’s campaign, argued that hair products should still be marketed to people who choose not to show their hair in public. “You have to wonder — why is it presumed that women that don’t show their hair don’t look after it?” Khan asked in an interview with Vogue. “The opposite of that would be that everyone that does show their hair only looks after it for the sake of

Key propaganda texts from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula are posted for free download on the Barnes & Noble website, including the inaugural issue of a magazine linked to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Reviews posted on the e-books indicate that they´ve remained on the bookseller´s website for years, despite clearly indicating in the titles that al-Qaeda materials are being offered. There are two listings for "Al-Malahem Media Foundation presents A Special Gift to the Islamic Nation The first Magazine issued by al-Qaida in the English language."

Obama’s current office, which is run by former de facto President Valerie Jarrett, is just a mile or so from the White House. It is at that location one sees a daily procession of donors, political operatives, party affiliates (BOTH Democrat and Republican) media friends (of which there are many) and more shadowy figures representing a myriad of foreign interests.

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for “mansplaining” to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a sharp and one-sided exchange Wednesday before a Senate committee. The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century. "Chanel liberated women (after World War I) by dressing them in male fabrics like tweed,"

Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion. In an email to the Catholic Herald, Ms. Ploumen said that she was “very honoured” by the pontifical medal, which was sent via the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs last month.

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s chief medical correspondent, proclaimed that based on President Donald Trump’s coronary calcium scores going back to the previous decade, Trump has heart disease. Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, offered his assessment of Trump’s health at a White House press briefing. “When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn — this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive,” Gupta said. “And if the number gets up

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a

CNN´s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said Wednesday that he believes tests reveal that President Trump has heart disease. Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart." "Steadily, up until just this past week when he had it performed again, those numbers have gone up," he said. "When they get to a certain range ... that means he has heart disease." Gupta then talked about his interaction Tuesday with President Trump´s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr.

Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the ­carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame. Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types of oven in the EU, with numbers set to reach 135 million by 2020. But scientists at the University of Manchester — the first to assess the environmental impact

He’ll have a lot of support from the wealthy people that he knows from when he ran for president.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday condemned President Trump’s combative attitude toward the press and called on Congress to protect journalists worldwide. “Whether Trump knows it or not, these efforts are being closely watched by foreign leaders who are already using his words as cover as they silence and shutter one of the key pillars of democracy,” McCain said in an opinion piece published in The Washington Post. McCain called the Trump administration’s treatment of journalists “inconsistent at best and hypocritical at worst,” particularly when it comes to condemning attacks on the press abroad. McCain cited foreign leaders who have
