Fans at Soldier Field have mixed feelings about protests during national anthem

Pacing back and forth after waiting in the locker room for over 24 hours, players for the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping someone will let them know when the national anthem has concluded so they can take the field. "So we wanted to make a stance as a team, as National Football League players; we united together".

"We were gonna be respectful of our football team", he explained. "I asked those guys to discuss it and whatever they discussed that we have 100 percent participation or we do nothing", Tomlin said after the game.

Left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, a former Army Ranger and graduate of West Point, visibly stood outside the tunnel at Soldier Field with his hand over his heart during The Star-Spangled Banner while his teammates remained under cover inside the stadium.

Last week, during a rally in Huntsville Alabama, Donald Trump called any player who protests the anthem a "son of a bitch", claiming they're dishonoring the flag.

Villanueva spent time at Fort Drum while he was part of the 10th Mountain Division.

"This is in no way shape or form a protest of the national anthem", Roethlisberger said.

Roethlisberger said the team will be on the field for the anthem before their next game Sunday in Baltimore. Because if I have heard one thing over and over for the last 48 hours from the National Football League, it's that the National Football League is a family.

"I don't listen to what he's got to say".

On Monday, Villanueva said he was "embarassed". According to ESPN's Darren Rovell, by Monday, Villanueva was the top-selling jersey in the entire NFL.

"People that are taking a knee are not saying anything negative about the military, they're not saying anything negative about the flag, they're just trying to protest the fact that there are some injustices in America", Villanueva said.

"We're not politicians. We're coaches and professional athletes..."

However, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell did not impose any fine (much less one of a cool $1 million each) on the Pittsburgh players, nor did he hand down any other form of punishment or announce any disciplinary action against them. "You can't do it by looking away from the people that are trying to protect our freedom and our country".

"I don't think veterans at the end of the day take offense", Villanueva said. This is the display of "disunity" that bothers Tomlin?
