e team was hoping Sunday would be the day its fans

Příspěvekod elvafeng » pon 16. říj 2017 3:05:32

Some of the most patriotic places in Pennsylvania are planning to tune out Sunday s big Steelers Ravens game in reaction to the Steelers going MIA for the National Anthem last week.

Several VFW and American Legion posts are lining up to boycott the black and gold this weekend by not showing the Steelers or any other NFL game.

As KDKA TV in Pittsburgh reports https://www.steelerspitzone.com/lt-walt ... -c-87.html, VFW and American Legion posts in Butler County are among the western Pennsylvania establishments in the heart of Steelers Country that won t be showing Sunday s Steelers game.

Sunday is our busiest day. We have food, games. It s going to hit us pretty hard, but we re willing to take a stand for what we believe in, VFW Post 249 Commander Floyd Case told KDKA.

Likewise, none of the eight TV sets at American Legion Post 117 will be tuned to this weekend s NFL games, including the usually marquee match up involving the Steelers and Ravens in Baltimore.

They ve sacrificed for their family and their country, and they want to see players stand up and respect the flag and the national anthem, American Legion Post 117 Commander Robert Spencer told KDKA, speaking for his members.

PennLive attempted to call various VFW and American Legion posts in western Pennsylvania in order to determine their plans. However, most had not yet opened for the day.


A staffer at VFW Post 1810 in Brentwood told a reporter a lot of members were not reacting well to the anthem protests but said they haven t canceled showing the game Sunday.

Still, the burgeoning boycott among patriotic VFW and American Legion halls places where football and the flag once went hand in hand cap an absolutely brutal week for the once sterling Steelers.

The acrimony among https://www.steelerspitzone.com/johnny- ... -c-86.html many in Steelers Nation had nothing to do with the team s 23 17 overtime loss in Chicago last Sunday. Rather, it has everything to do with the fact that the team remained off the field for the National Anthem before the game.

Only one solitary Steeler, Army Veteran Alejandro Villanueva, stood, saluted the flag and sung as the rest of the team remained AWOL for the anthem.

The Steelers, which have enjoyed decades of loyal support from a fervent fan base that grew into Steelers Nation, suffered a swift, stunning and severe public relations backlash in wake of the team s decision to skip the Star Spangled Banner.

Steelers brass tried to defend the team s anthem absence as an attempt to steer clear of the potent politics surrounding the entire situation after President Trump seized on the issue.

But many scorned the once mighty Steelers as a timid team best suited for hiding out in the stadium tunnel as the anthem played.


Fans burned Steelers memorabilia on You Tube. And on social media, long time Pittsburgh fans swore off following the team in the future. And most shocking, the Steelers strong and iconic steel industry logo was photo shopped into the weak kneed Pittsburgh Kneelers even though the team never did take a knee.

With the Steelers poised to renew perhaps the NFL s best and most bitter https://www.steelerspitzone.com/tyson-a ... -c-85.html rivalry with the Ravens, the team was hoping Sunday would be the day its fans finally got back to football.

But the burgeoning boycotts along with the continuing bad blood directed at the Steelers on social media seems to suggest Steelers Nation remains deeply divided by the team s decision to stay in the tunnel for the anthem.

Perhaps this comment from American Legion 778 Cmdr. Albert Worsley summed up the still simmering sentiment against the Steelers

We all have that right to protest or not, but they have that right because our veterans Tyson Alualu Jersey, many died for that, Worsley told KDKA. My father was a World War II vet ... and my dad would have been livid today.

Many regions of Steelers Nation remain livid at the team they once adored even though the team has promised all players will stand for the anthem on Sunday.


That just might be too little https://www.steelerspitzone.com/daniel- ... -c-84.html, too late.

I think so too, because it's everyone's holiday.
