As part of a wave of protests throughout the NFL in the wake of President Donald Trump's NFL-related comments, the Steelers will not be on the field for the playing of the national anthem before their game against the Bears on Sunday.
Coach Mike Tomlin told CBS his team would remain in the locker room for the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner.

They should never come out on the field.
Sorry, Coach. That’s even more disrespectful.
Yeah, hide in the latrine you ungrateful, ignorant pieces of ****.
Denying, of course, the rights of those patriotic players who wish to show their allegiance.
Boy oh boy.
The heat is now ON.
I wish I had placed a bet that the NFL would self-destruct this year. I could have cleaned up. This has been unraveling for awhile, but OMG these idiots are just stomping on the accelerator now. They will probably play another season or two, but I expect pro Football as we have known it to be over already. I don’t plan to ever see another game.
WHAT a f*cking coward.
Instead of taking a stand, he bends over and takes it in the arse.
Real bravery there, Coach Mike Tomlin.. You’re a REAL example of manhood for youngsters to emulate.
What is the matter with these people?
The NFL is slowly committing suicide.
Well Rooney was a big time hitlery supporter.
...and the fans should remain in their homes for the game.
Not sure of that. The left must be ecstatic this morning that two of their foes (The NFL and flag-loving conservatives) are attacking each other. How is the left not winning this?
Steelers are dead to me and this family now. They can collectively kiss my arse. Bunch of millionaire crybabies. So oppressed when they drive around in their high end cars and play in a stadium paid for by people who cant even afford a damn ticket. Screw them all.
“This has been unraveling for awhile, but OMG these idiots are just stomping on the accelerator now.”
Right on! They’ve taken a “page” from the Democrat’s “playbook!”
Easy to tune out and turn them off.
Easier for me since I got sick of these over paid prima donnas a LONG time ago.
If most of them couldn’t carry a foot ball they would be digging ditches or trying to be on welfare.
Tune out, turn off it won’t take long for the money to stop flowing. Don’t want this gang back ever though at any price. There are plenty of others.
Watch what happens in basketball this season. They are losers as well.
I have much better things to do than watch sports on TV. Surely other people can find something more useful and enjoyable to do.
It is Gold Star Mother’s Day. Let’s remember the Mom whose sons have died in service to US instead of the dreadlocked perfumed princes.
They should all pile into the sh**house and stay there for all I care.
