Although it is not going to shared until it happens Monday night with regards to with to a demonstration or not before game time, but whatever they do they will all be doing it.

Well, fair warning. If the Steelers pull of what the Texans did, and or kneeling during the National Anthem, or any signs of disrespect for law enforcement and their authority, I’m done.

It's all virtue signaling which means nothing. They are doing it because if they don't they're afraid of being called racists. Let me know what they do. I fully expect them to come out dressed in tutus and do a rockettes line dance at mid field. At least that would be entertaining

I don't believe they'll kneel out of respect for Big Al and to a lesser point Stephon Tuitt. I believe it will be along the lines of arms linked and/or a prayer at midfield. I don 'y know, it seems as though Steve Nelson is agitating this response. 

However, if they do anything as you stated above I will be done as well. I have followed the Yankees since 1972 and 2 of their "players" knelt (maybe more, I don't know) and I haven't watched a single pitch since. They can finish in last place for all I care.

Coupling this with the attempted assassination of 2 LA Policemen last night and the "peaceful protesters" blocking the emergency room entranced I believe this country is 1 riot away from another civil war. The liberal media and their elitiest minions have been beating the drum for this for 4 years now. I hope they understand what is coming won't be pretty. 

I hope like hell I'm wrong.

The Steelers stayed in the locker room for "The Black National Anthem" and they all stood behind banner to "End Racism" for the National Anthem.

Only 2 ass-clowns made fools of themselves: Eric Ebron and Chase Claypool. They raised their clenched fist in allegiance to BLM. Screw them both, the 2 newest Steelers. They can paly for the next 10 years, I want be a fan of either. 

Big Al got approval to put a fallen Army comrade on the back of his helmet. Other than that pretty uneventful.

I did not watch. I played in a multiple day member guest and was too tired, and did not have enough interest, to watch the game.

I think only 2 ass clowns is a bit of an understatement. Every player who gives into social justice pressures deserves to be in that category. If they really want to be involved; do it privately. Not within a corporate format. I don't respect or need to see or hear their positions. In many cases I doubt some of them fully understand what they are protesting and the impact it may have on viewers, their careers, etc.

Looks like Maurkice Pouncey will soon be following AV lead. It's beginning to look like the Steelers may have benn duped into this. I don't feel bad, they should have researched this a little more. Pouncey works with police both in Pittsburgh and his hometown in Florida. 

Maurkice Pouncey is second Steelers player to cover name of police shooting victim on helmet

Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey is the second player on his his team to decide not to put Antwon Rose Jr.'s name on the back of his helmet for the season. Rose was shot and killed by police in 2018, after being stopped because a vehicle he was in fit the description of a car involved in a drive-by shooting. Rose was unarmed and was shot three times in the back, face and elbow.


This season Steelers decided to honor Rose, whos name has been used as a platform and example for creating reform and ending police brutality, by putting his name on the back of their helmets.

The gesture started as a team decision as a message of unity, but offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva was the first Steelers player to make the decision not to participate.


Pouncey released a long statement on the matter on Instagram, discussing his work with the police and tagging the Pittsburgh chief of police and police station as well as other stations in Florida.

"I was given limited information on the situation regarding Antwon, and I was unaware of the whole story surrounding his death and what transpired during the trial following the tragedy. I should have done more research to fully understand what occurred in its entirety ... Make no mistake, I am against racism and I believe the best thing I can do is to continue helping repair relationships between the police and their communities."

Pouncey continued his message saying, "I also want to make sure [the police] understand I inadvertently supported a cause of which I did not fully comprehend the entire background of the case ... My focus will continue to be on helping the police in our communities, and I support making any necessary changes to help those efforts."

Villanueva, a former Army Ranger who has served three tours in Afghanistan, instead decided to wear to honor Alwyn Cashe, a veteran who died during the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2005.



Steelers president Art Rooney II says he is supportive of whatever decision the players make. 
"As an organization, we respect the decisions of each player, coach and staff member relating to how to express themselves on social justice topics," he said. "We will continue to support our social initiatives to fight against social injustice and systemic racism not only in our area, but around the country."

Rooney added, "Along the way, we understand that individually we may say or do things that are not universally accepted. There will be uncomfortable conversations. But we will strive to be a force for unity in our efforts to support a more just society."

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Rose got out of the car and started running before officers opened fire. The person who was shot at in the drive-by told Pennsylvania State Police that Rose had fired at him from the car. Officer Michael Rosfeld was charged with criminal homicide in the Rose shooting and later acquitted.

Pouncey was a huge "Free Hernandez" guy and probably committed crimes with him.

You, Chuck, are an idiot.
