Will this 'new' policy be a unity thing with teams? What I mean is, will Alex Villanueva be the only Steeler out there standing at attention, hand over his heart, singing the National Anthem while the rest of his teammates are in the locker room checking their twitter and FB accounts, or will he be 'forced' to stay inside with the rest of the ingrates?


The world as we know it underwent a rebirth 11-8-16. Conservatives have made themselves heard!

I have zero sympathy for these privileged punks. They can push their imaginary agenda on their own time.

One of the greatest cons in American history has been the president turning this into an anti-military protest, and people buying it.  The NFL owners don't care that the players are using their notoriety to bring to light social injustices, they care that they could possibly lose some money.  That's why this "compromise" was made. Roger Goodell and the 32 NFL owners aren't patriotic, they just like money and they are afraid of Trump.

So wait, you don’t think the National Anthem has anything to do with honoring the sacrifics that men and women have made to protect our country and it’s freedoms? 

If it’s not about them, then why is it even played and honored at all?

I think both sides have a solid reason to believe they are right. Unfortunately this is another case in this country where we would rather not listen to one another on either side and divide ourselves then come together for a positive solution

This pretty much sums it up and it’s unfortunate this has become the norm.
