The owners of the Pittsburgh Steelers have just put an end to the little stunt planned for today’s game in Chicago. Mike Tomlin, the head coach who announced he would keep his team in the locker room for the playing of the National Anthem, has been fired:
“The Steelers will play no part in this level of disrespect. We love our state, our country and our President and stand by him. Often Presdident Trump speaks from the heart and we have to listen to what he’s saying in spirit.
We support our players but will not tolerate such insolence.”
Good for them. The Pittsburgh Steelers are America’s team today.
