    A politician trying to prevent the ability of its citizens to peacefully protest by saying that those sons of bitches should be fired is profoundly un-American. In democracies, different people are able to express dissenting opinions without fear of governmental oppression. A Head of State attempting to mandate exactly how all citizens are supposed to act during patriotic ceremonies (and threatening consequences for any dissention) sounds more like what you might expect to hear from a dictator in North Korea, Iran, or Libya than here in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
    dude it's a work place! .... that message will never be heard kneeling in front of millions during the NA....wrong place and platform has nothing to do with there protest but, a protest against the NA is what is viewed and pissed people off...

    How will the message never be heard? Everyone is talking about this now. There is currently more discussion going on in the General section than the Steeler section of this board.
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    I don't think they were dividing people 1% as much as Trump did by bringing it up to distract from whatever his fubar of the week was then.
