Go to hell Mike Tomlin

Sharing these words from our friend lovely who really hit the ball out of the park with this one, and thanks to Stella for putting it into a post. You must go read the whole thing.

Stella's Place

Written by our friend, lovely, this is an expression of what we all feel about the situation of the NFL players disrespecting our country and its flag. She has, as she usually does, expressed herself with deep feeling and eloquence. As friend Menagerie said, It is the best commentary I’ve seen on the flag situation with the pro teams, and believe me, I’ve waded through tons of it all weekend.

Dear Mike Tomlin, James Harrison, Ben Roethlisberger and another Steeler who feels a need to criticize Bronze Star recipient Alejandro Villanueva for honoring the flag that his brothers came home under, you can all go to hell.

On Sunday your team had 3 options, stand and support America, sit/kneel and disrespect America or 3 take the coward’s way out and abstain, vote present, hide in the tunnel because you were too afraid to be seen as pro-American or Anti-American. What…

  1. As a lifelong Steelers fan, this has me emotionally shaken to the core. Before the decision was announced yesterday that the Steelers would remain in the locker room, I had come to the conclusion that if any Steelers player knelt, I would skip this game and the next game. If they continued to kneel, I would skip the season.

    Yesterday emotions were high, and being anti-trump was the reason most players were going to kneel. Not because of anything our flag, military, or national anthem stood for. It was purely political.

    When announced that the Steelers would stay in the lockerroom, I applauded this action. They were not going to be played by either side of the political spectrum and were not going to be pawns in this circus. Also when first announced, anti-trumpers immediately criticized the decision because they WANTED to see players kneel in defiance. But quickly the media pounced on this decision, and immediately labeled the decision, a protest, when this is exactly what the Steelers team wanted to avoid. And this was the PLAYERS decision, not a Tomlin decision.

    I admit I am still torn. I was very proud of Alejandro Villanueva for standing alone and had tears in my eye. I hope his leadership will allow his team to see the true meaning behind the flag and the anthem. If and when I ever see a Steelers player kneel, I will say goodbye this team. But if they come out next week, and the week after, and they STAND, I will continue to stand with this team. Many of these are still young men and are still learning about themselves. If the purpose in this was for them all to see how Alejandro Villanueva responded, perhaps it will awaken something inside of them. I hope they all grow from this and become better men.

    At the end of the day, isn’t that what this is all about? Having our eyes opened, and growing… Next Sunday will reveal a lot about this team, and I for one remain hopeful. As of now, I have not seen a Steelers player kneel, but when I do…

        That’s the beauty of what DJT has accomplished.

        The BLM / anti-fa ‘kneelers’ convinced themselves that they were self-righteous, virtue-signalling, America-hating Commies.

        And quite amazingly, these idiots actually thought that was a good thing, lol!

        What DJT did was to cast their behavior in the appropriate and repulsive light, and then force them to own it or abandon it.

        They brought this entirely on themselves, and as of the speech in Alabama, they no longer get a free pass to denigrate our country.

        DJT has forced them to choose.

        Will they acknowledge their stark raving hypocrisy, shut up and play ball like they’re paid to do?

        Or will they choose to self-immolate, destroying their own livelihood (and the NFL itself) in the process?

        That is the choice they now face, thanks to DJT.

        This is epic, it’s absolutely brilliant!

      Your justifications do not have merit. While I can understand your reluctance, as a super fan, to accept the truth, you must understand that these players, and their bosses, do not care one iota about you or this country.

      President Trump has mounted a Herculean effort to save our country from the precipice of disaster. Those who oppose him are out to destroy our national sovereignty, to usher in a New World Order. That is why they refuse to honor the Pledge of Allegiance, or to express patriotism they don’t feel for our country.

No wonder these protestors hate cops and the national anthem.

    I suppose I’ll be vilified for this comment, but here goes. I agree with Stella’s sentiments and her points. I didn’t realize the NFL was tax-subsidized. Say what? I concur that needs to end, pronto. As usual with the left, the hypocrisy is hip-deep. The only problem with her post is that with the poor grammar, it was difficult to read and even hard to follow in places. I’m not a card-carrying member of the Grammar Police Squad. Not by any means.

    So one last thing about the Yankees. Their star player, Aaron Judge, just broke the rookie record by hitting 50 home runs in a season. Judge is black and adopted by a black father and white mother. They asked him why he points after his home runs. What are you doing Aaron? “I am thanking the Lord who has given me the talents to play baseball for the NY Yankees. I am very blessed.”

    So contrast the sports. The NFL has players who kneel. The NBA has Lebron Jones and Steph Curry who call the President names. Baseball has Aaron Judge.

    Tomlin said he thought the team was in agreement on how to handle it, and that they were going to handle it together.

    “We will not be divided on this,” Tomlin said. We got a group of men in there that come from different socioeconomic backgrounds, races, creed, ethnicities and religions, and so forth. That’s football. That’s a lot of team sports, but because of our position, we get drug into bulls—, to be quite honest with you.

    “Some have opinions. Some don’t. We wanted to protect those that don’t. We wanted to protect those that do.”

    But as he did in Afghanistan, Villanueva put himself in the line of fire. Which is his right as much as any player has to protest otherwise. Whether his bosses are fine with his insubordination remains to be seen.

    This weekend was about one guy: Herschel Walker.

    Watch the ESPN 30/30 from some years back about the USFL and Trump. Once you see that you’ll understand what this ugly NFL weekend is all about.

    Trump’s war on the NFL has been going on since the early 80s. Trump shook up the NFL by grabbing Herschel Walker away. The NFL billionaire owners have hated him ever since, audacity and all that.

    Fast forward to this weekend’s drama. Trump is now the President and he wants to destroy the media monopolies. What better way to crush the media than to continue the fued with the reliable cash cow of the NFL? Kaepernick created the opportunity last year. Nobody except maybe Kraft saw Trump winning. They ignored their exposure to the downside of player protest activism.

    Trump has forced the NFL owners to drop their masks to the fans. His tweets have forced the owners to side with the pawns (players, pundits) or the fans (America, flag, cops). It’s a battle NFL cannot win because they are losing and not about to change generals. The NFL has been led by the Democrats for quite sometime (e.g. Starring DeMaurice Smith, Obama operative, as the controlled opposition player rep)

    You are seeing the beginning of the end of a decades long battle between Trump and his fellow billionaires who have have screwed over America.

    The swamp is all around us even though we don’t always see it. Another campaign promise being kept.

    Thank you, President Trump for calling out the NFL bullies of the middle class. It’s about damn time.

    Stella, I’m from Pittsburgh and was shocked by the Steelers lack of judgement, except one. In response I sent the following note to my son who is currently in Afghanistan. I think the true patriots of the CTH may appreciate it.
    When I heard about the Steelers not coming out for the National Anthem I couldn’t help but think about you flying the terrible towel over your bunk and the 2 airborne rangers who were lost in Aug. The contrast couldn’t be more stark and yes, sad.

    Suggest you retire the Steeler colors until the team discovers values worthy of our pride in them. For the terrible towel you have, perhaps you could use it as a border with your lost buddies pictures pasted over the top of the towel or with a flag in the center. With-out the sacrifice of your buddies in Aug and you and your fellow soldiers downrange today, these snowflakes wouldn’t be playing anything.

    I applaud Villanueva, but thought the team as a whole understood what the National Anthem and Flag stands for. Your CG nailed it with the video below. The Steelers are clearly culturally lost and need new leadership. This will be our fight, you take care of yourself and fellow soldiers. It breaks my heart to see Sgt Hunter’s wife standing over him while remembering so many close friends that we’ve lost in defense of the flag and our song.

    Stand tall and God bless this great land!

    The more I think about, the more I see the upside of President Trump taking charge of the controversy.

    Think back to his inaugural address:

    “At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.

    When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.

    The Bible tells us ‘how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.’

    While America is united, America is totally unstoppable.”


    “A new national pride will stir our souls, lift our sights, and heal our divisions.

    It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American flag.”

    President Trump just redirected the conversation in America. Every day Americans are rejecting the race-based politics of the left. We are rejecting the holier than thou atttitude from overpaid and overhyped athletes and entertainers. We are saying “enough!”….show some respect for your country! Do something proactive instead of your worthless posturing! Every day Americans are discussing constitutional rights.

    President Trump is fostering a sense of national
    pride as the only way to start healing our racial divisions. This is an ugly process, but we have to get through it, especially in light of all the nonsense about Robert E. Lee and confederate symbols.

    The left cannot win on this one, which is why all the headlines today complaining that Trumphasnt visited Puerto Rico.
    The last thing the left wants is a renewed belief in American exceptionalism.

      President Trump clearly realized that the underlying problem in America was to taking the culture back. Love the moves he has made, and like you said, it’s why the Left is going crazy. Deliberately, and opportunistically, the President is using the culturally twisted institutions of Hollywood and sports own fodder to go right at them. Essentially hoisting them on their own petard.

      He didn’t go to the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, so no one cared about it, a championship team doesn’t want to go to the White House, fine, don’t bother. And with his few words about the NFL players disrespecting the flag – therefore disrespecting America – well that finally threw open the gates for the people to storm the ramparts.

    This is all a distraction conjured up by the “MSM”.

    If you are spending your time clutching pearls over what these millionaire athletes in the National Felon League are doing then you are not part of the solution. Turn the idiot box off and do something constructive with your time on earth.

      I don’t disagree that its a MSM fabrication, but we are in a culture war and to do nothing isn’t the answer either. There was once a day where sports were a healthy break away from real world issues and even tragedies. I grew strong relationships with battle buddies who would share the trivial wins and losses of the football teams. To see these players/coaches now, so self absorbed in themselves and disrespecting the nation is a shocking loss of Americana (our culture).

      I’ll never forget sitting by the TV watching a Steeler game with a friend of my Dad’s who I later discovered miraculously survived a kamikaze attack in WW II. As humble as he was, I saw his gun station that was demolished by the attack. It was some 50 years later they finally released the pictures of his destroyer giving him his first look of the hell his crew-mates carried him from. Unfortunately many of his friends that day didn’t make it.

      Before that war the nation was “lost” and meandering. I think the same is true today. Let’s hope we can fix the course without the carnage so often realized in the past.

        Sorry to say, those hundreds and thousands of hours you and countless others spent watching the “boob tube” were hours that you didn’t spend holding your government’s feet to the fire on all of the freedoms/rights/jobs we have seen taken away for decades.

        It’s long past time that grown men and women leave off the games of children and participate in the greatest sport of all, politics. Take back your country or lose it forever; don’t be distracted by easy things. Stop being a spectator; be a participant.

    The Steelers use to be my second favorite team behind the Bears…that is now over. It is time to send the NFL a message that we don’t give a damn about them or their silly sport!

      Ed Rollins, on Lou Dobbs tonight, has also had enough.

      A lifetime fan, he’s tuning out his normal 5 to 6 televised games a week and calling on all others to do same.

        I heard that, and was amazed. He doesn’t usually weigh in so heavily, but if he can see finally, publicly decry the rot of the NFL, then that’s a very good thing. Rush didn’t watch any football on Sunday – for the first time in 45 years. Does anyone recall how the NFL kept him from becoming part owner of a team? Now there’s discrimination for you – no conservatives need apply.

        Wonder how much damage Rush can now do with his microphone to help take down the NFL… We’re gone and we’re not coming back. It’s also time to go hard at the advertisers, but I daresay, those empty seats and tanking ratings will make those advertisers rethink how much they’re going to pay those fools or simply take their advertising dollars elsewhere.

    This has the putrid death smell of Muslim Brotherhood/ISIS – Marxists/Communists.

    Refusing to honor National Anthem and US Flag is a sure symptom.

    Defaming US, US laws and law enforcement is a typical tactic.

    Until proven otherwise, it is safe to assume this is an attempt by Muslim Brotherhood/BLM (which is allied with ISIS) to take over, bully, make Islam the official religion of NFL/NBA and USA.

    First they claim victimhood, then make demands, bully, then they take over with their rabid, irrational, barbaric, misogynist totalitarianism.

    This has been their process globally – They do it in schools, government, commerce – everywhere.

    With the emphasis of spiting President Trump, it is likely Obama and/or $0r0$ and one of their groups is also involved.

    To all of the kneeling or hiding players. I am no longer going to be buying tickets to your games and I will write each one of your tv sponsors to let them know that I won’t be buying their products because of your actions. That is the flag my dad and I served under and nearly died to defend and defend YOU. You have the right to take your actions and to bear the consequences of your actions. How will the owners pay for your bloated salaries without revenue streams from the ticket sales, concessions, or tv advertised products? Actions beget reactions; I won’t support you!
