The Pittsburg Steellers is one of the largest funbases in the NFL. This is the team that on one of their games refused to leave the locker room for the National Anthem. Except Alejandro Villanueva.
Now another player announced some big news. Maurkice Pouncey just announced what the team plans to do during the anthem this coming Sunday.
“I promise you one thing this week — we’ll all be standing out there for the national anthem. Trust me. We respect our flag and we respect the military. I think the bigger message was we were trying to stay out of it. That we should unite inside. It was all about the flag. It was just a big misunderstanding. Trust me, I’m very sorry to anyone who feels the way they do. I care about the flag dearly. Trust me, this team will be out there standing Sunday.”
“As far I know it’s 100 percent. We’re going to go out there as the Pittsburgh Steelers. If not, you’ll have something to talk about. As far as I know everyone on the Pittsburgh Steelers will go out there.”
