Steelers HC Mike Tomlin Week 3 Post Game Press Conference Transcript


The Pittsburgh Steelers lost Sunday to the Chicago Bears on the road and after the game was over, head coach Mike Tomlin had quite a bit to say during his talk with the media not only about what happened during the contest, but also about that happened prior to the game when his team chose not to be on the field for the National Anthem.

Below is a transcript of Tomlin’s post game press conference in its entirety:

Tomlin Opening Statement: I’ve got a disappointed group in there and appropriately so. We fought our tails off, but wasn’t able to finish to finish the job. Faced a lot of adversity today, but most of it created by us. in the first half. I thought that we turned the ball over, you’re minus two in the first half, plus a blocked kick. You’re probably fortunate to be down by 10. We were. We allowed them to run the ball some. We settled those things down and fought our way back, and then wasn’t able to finish the job. You gotta give credit to those guys. They did a great job today, particularly in running the football. That’s unacceptable for us. We’ll absorb the negativity that comes with that. We own that. That’s National Football League play. You’ve got to stop the run. They utilized those two backs and really did a nice job and so I compliment them on that. We’ll assess this and hopefully grow from it and move forward, but make no mistake there’s disappointment today, and there should be. Ramon Foster went out with a thumb injury. Sean Davis went out with an ankle injury. They were unable to return. We had some other guys go down but were able to return. Well assess those the way we always do.

Question: The play at the end of the first half, did they explain why they reviewed that?

Tomlin: They did, but. I still really lack a little clarity there. I was told by an official that the half was over. That’s why we took our team off the field. And then they went into review mode and things of that nature. I’m not questioning whether or not they did the appropriate thing, it just was tough communicating during that time in terms of understanding what were the processes that produced the actions taken. I’m sure we’ll get clarity at some point.


Question: Was it a review, or just a plain rule?

Tomlin: I think in some way the play was reviewed. It was inside of two minutes and it was reviewed. How it got to that point, I didn’t get great clarity on and it’s nothing against Clete and that group. It was an awkward play and they did the best they could.

Question: Was it your decision to not come out for the anthem and what was your thinking with that?

Tomlin: No, it wasn’t my decision. Like most teams in the National Football League, we didn’t ask for this. This was placed upon us by circumstance. I heard rumblings of guys talking during the course of the day yesterday. My contention was that we would not allow politics to divide us. We’re football players. We’re a football team. If many of them felt like something needed to be done, I asked those guys to discuss it, and whatever they discussed that we have a hundred percent participation, or we do nothing. They discussed it for an appropriate length of time. They couldn’t come to an understanding, so they chose to remove themselves from it. They were not going to be disrespectful in the anthem, so they chose not to participate, but at the same time many of them were not going to accept the words of the president. So, we decided to sit it out, to not take the field, to remove ourselves from it, to focus on playing football. And so those were our intentions.

Question: Re: Villaneueva being on the field for the anthem:

Tomlin: Like I said, I was looking for a hundred percent participation. We’re going to be respectful of our football team. Man, these are divisive times in the United States. and it’s a shame, but it is, but we’re not politicians. We’re coaches and professional athletes. If those of us are individuals choose to participate in politics in some way, I’m going to be supportive of that, but when we come out of locker rooms, we come out of locker rooms to play football games, and to be quite honest with you I didn’t appreciate our football team being drug into politics this weekend. And I’m sure that’s a global perspective. But, we’re blessed to do this for a living, and so with that blessing comes responsibility. We understand that. We understand that we’re given a platform that’s a unique one. Many of us are called to maybe do things that we wouldn’t normally do because of that platform, where people apply pressure to us to do things because of that platform. The bottom line is we chose not to play ball today in that regard. Maybe we will, but today, we just said no.

Question: If he talked to league:

Tomlin: We didn’t keep secrets. I called the commissioner this morning and told him our intentions.

Question: Do you think any of that impacted your team?

Tomlin: I don’t. I really think that probably more than anything, it minimized it as a distraction for us. Once we came to that determination, it was business as usual. The big thing is that we remain united. These teams,this game of football is a unique one. We’re all blessed to be a part of it. We all get tolerances because of people that are different because of our association with ball. I think that anybody that’s involved with ball has a high level of tolerance, has a high level of understanding. We feel bad for people that aren’t involved in football, that don’t get an opportunity to have a brother that’s very different than him next to him that he has to rely on, so you gain an understanding. We will not be divided by this. We’ve 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 drugged into bullshit, to be quite honest with you. And so, some have opinions, some don’t. We wanted to protect those that don’t; we wanted to protect those that do. We came here to play a football game today, and that was our intentions. Thank you.

  • SportsBall Is My Life

    Im glad they lost. Good on Villaneueva for not taking part in that ClownShow spectacle. That man is Army Strong!

  • Paddy

    Even the Bengals stood arm in arm, too bad Tomlin didn’t see it, and they’re beating Green Bay at Lambeau

  • ModusTollens

    If they won’t honor our country, I won’t cheer for them. Lifelong Steeler fan an d completely disgusted by this. Where is the leadership?

  • John

    So if the Steelers locked arms they would have played better?

  • Paddy

    YEP

  • Darth Blount 47

    I have absolutely no clue what I was hoping or needing or even expecting to hear from Coach Tomlin. But honestly, and this comes from someone who likes Tomlin and who you have very, very rarely heard (or seen in print) criticize him too harshly… But I read his words, I weighed them, I measured them, and I have found them…. wanting.

  • John

    I agree, who care if cops disproportionately kill black people?

  • Darth Blount 47

    ^ That’s a trap. ^

    Just in case some of you were looking to respond.

  • Darth Blount 47

    Well, to be fair, they could hardly have played WORSE.

  • Stephen

    Spot on my friend

  • Darth Blount 47

    I’m a BIG fan of Villy’s. But the only clown show spectacle that I have for sure seen through 3 games is his play at Left Tackle.

  • The Chin

    So you believe the pregame stuff determines the play on the field? These guys are professional athletes. If they can’t do their job between the white lines,they aren’t worth their salt in my opinion

  • Stephen

    Learn facts about those killed by police, you wil be amazed by the truth not the truth the media puts out

  • John

    It’s why Kaepernick knelt. Not because he hates America or whatever dumb reason people are projecting onto him.

  • Paddy

    It’s a distraction.

  • SportsBall Is My Life

    It is very much not in the NFL’s interest for sportsball-loving Americans to take a closer look at some of the sacred monsters who play the game

  • John

    Ah yes, “fake news”. I’ll be sure to avoid “the media”.

  • Darth Blount 47

    I can’t speak to precise or exact motivations (Of Kap), but this comment was more practical and understandable for sure, than the emotionally charged one before it.

  • cencalsteeler

    He did have a heat related illness last week, so I wouldn’t rush to pee in his corn flakes just yet.

  • Darth Blount 47

    1 out of 3. So maybe at least a tinkle?

  • JT

    I know Mike Tomlin is not a popular guy around here, but that’s a damn inspiring rant at the end there. At the end of the day, he is a leader of men. He doesn’t make them miss tackles, he doesn’t make them blow assignments on ST, but he does shape them as people. And everything he said at the end there is what DMR was about. Pittsburgh. Family. Football.

    I’m not happy about the result today. But I’m happy that Tomlin is our coach.

  • The Chin

    One that every team in the league had

  • ModusTollens

    What does that have to do with not standing for the National anthem? Or football? Cowards!

  • Darth Blount 47

    I liked the “Bulls*** part.” I guess that was my favorite.

  • Ike Evans

    Why do people care so much about something being done or not done that they themselves mostly don’t do? I get being mad if you feel the military is being disrespected….completely but I worked at Heinz all through hs and college…I worked at Turner field in Atlanta through my masters….more then half the stadium doesn’t stand, doesn’t pay attention, is talking, or on their phones during the anthem….the hypocrisy is overwhelming ….and I’m sure the ppl who are at home sitting on their arses watching the anthem far out number those standing in their living room before the game with their arm over their hearts in accordance….get over yourselves and stop bringing this crap into our favorite site

  • Karen

    Actually if you look for it you will see a picture of the entire team STANDING in the tunnel behind Villanueva. CBS did not bother to show us that, because it does not feed into the narrative that the press is trying to force down our throats. Villanueva could no more not stand then he could not breathe, and his teammates stood behind him.

  • Matt Hatchett

    Villaneueva was a man that did the right thing and had the courage to stand alone to do it. Tomlin didn’t back him up, and that is too bad. I think the Steelers are a divided football team and I think that starts at the top!

  • cencalsteeler

    Well, a tinkle is ok, I guess. Save the rest for the coaching staff who keep carrying over the same issues from year to year.

  • John

    I prefer to think of it as incendiary. If people are going to get so bent out of shape because of this then I reserve the right to rag on them. There are way bigger issues facing this country and the Steelers.

  • SnoopDogg123

    Tomlin opening remarks should be, “The standard is the standard.. we lose against crappy Teams and Ben sucks on the road”.

  • melblount

    Did anyone ask Mikey how he so consistently is able to annually lose to inferior talented teams against whom we are heavy favorites? What a tired act his has become.

  • JT

    I think it’s important to remember a few things. It was a players decision, and I don’t think Tomlin would’ve done right by his team to overrule them. And that standing for the anthem was never a regular part of the football experience until this century. So much has been made of this relatively new practice. And to me, it matters for more to me what these guys do when they’re not playing for the Steelers. How they spend their time, donate to charities, etc. That shows me who they are as men. I try not to sensationalize with the modern media.

  • John

    You do know where this all started, right?

  • NJ Steel

    I’m not supporting this team until they support our country. I love the Steelers but this is bigger than football.

  • Hec

    If feels like #26 is still holding out his services!

  • Really? They don’t support their country?

    What they did was a direct retaliation to Trumps comments made on Friday. The commish, NFLPA, and the owners ALL backed the players.

    This team is probably better off without you…

  • SammyC

    Tomlin is king. A fantastic statement and fantastic way to handle this.

    Shame for such a close loss but that’s football. I’ll back the hell out of the team no matter what.

  • Steel Your Face

    Mine too. Best part of the whole damn day.

  • You must have your head in the ground…

    No Steeler took part in this 2 year + protest. Trump steps out of line with his mounth yet again, and more players than ever take a knee. The Commish, the Owners, the NFLPA all backed the players.

    The only person no honoring the country is the president in condemning those in a peaceful protest…

  • Steelnads

    While I truly respect your right to voice your feelings on the matter, I disagree that this is an issue about honoring the country. The Constitution provides for freedom of speech, and the right of the people to assemble peaceably. So, by your count, If anything, they’re doing exactly the opposite of what you’re saying merely by invoking the rights granted unto them by the Constitution. It’s easy to pick a side in all this, but not so easy to actually step away from the nonsense and work towards a practical solution. And what better way to honor our country than that?

  • Darth Blount 47

    Oh, that’s for sure. You and I agree on that. Certainly. I said so as much in a post on the subject last night/early in the morning.

  • Matt

    You could ask the same question of Ben. Why does he play poorly against bad teams, particularly on the road.

    Yeah, the defense broke in overtime, but D was not the problem here during regulation. The offense should have put up more points. Every year we hear how the offense should be good for 30 points per game. Every year, those of us who expect it are disappointed. Haley gets most of the blame from the fans, but the truth is that Ben deserves at least as much, if not more, of the blame for the offense’s underperformance.

  • SammyC

    Further, not only are most of these clownboy commenters typically abysmal at analyzing what happened during a football game (ie “the steelers won but they won IN SPITE of Tomlin and Haley. Fire them both!”), they’re also predictably abysmal at understanding social conditions and the effects of social platforms.

    Y’all need to stick to what you’re good at which is dumb comments on good articles.

  • mape_ape

    Source?

  • mape_ape

    lulz. I have no faculty of my own! Trump forced me to respond!

  • SammyC

    Cya

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    show me the proof, you cant but i can show you you that you are listening to a narrative that is false

  • You need to get a clue. The was a retaliation to the president divisive comment made on Friday. Staying in the tunnel during the anthem as well as players kneeling or standing with interlocked arms was a message sent directly to Trump. His words condemning a peaceful protest is unpatriotic and a slap in the face to every American.

    The Commish, the owners, and the NFLPA all back the players.

  • will

    Remember Rooneys are big left wingers.

  • mape_ape

    Kap.

  • will

    Black people disproportionately kill black people.

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    that doesnt make it right.

  • mape_ape

    Yep. I’m sure Trump is going to care what a bunch of overpaid whiners thinks of him. lmao

  • will

    “This century” began in the year 2000.
    Try again.

  • psteelers

    Man I wish I could give this comment 100 up votes. These trolls are trying to stir up something.

    2-1 headed to bmore, Ben needs to tighten up. Run defense will be better I’m sure. Ryan has to stop over running plays. Defense played well enough for us to win. Giving up 17 points in regulation after multiple turnovers and blocked fg is not bad.

  • pittfan

    The irony is that Tomlin’s intentions were to take the team “out of it” but their actions put them in the center of attention. We were the only team that did not show up on the sidelines at all.

  • will

    He had them playing down to a lesser opponent AGAIN!!

  • Freddy Routson

    It was hot there on the field…the defense was worn down…on the Steelers radio post game show it was mentioned that the Bears were running at Chickilo’s side most of the game…I was traveling today and listened on the radio so I can’t respond to that but they said on the radio, if I heard correctly, that James Harrison did not play! Would that be true? Even high school coaches spell defenders (with compitent back-ups of course) when it’s very hot. Also James sets the edge very well and can play the run very well! Is his playing time just mentioned accurate? Still traveling Guys! Thanks!

  • will

    Exactly!!!

  • While no human rights instrument or national constitution grants the absolute right to protest, such a right to protest may be a manifestation of the right to freedom of assembly, the right to freedom of association, and the right to freedom of speech.

  • Sweet Lee

    Later!

  • Rocksolid20

    Kaepernick has no job , it would be a great time for him
    to put on a uniform and show everyone that he loves his country .
    The military is hiring Kaep . stand up and be counted .

  • Rusted Out

    It seems that way, but he’s hurting himself much more if that is actually the case. He is currently under the tag with no long term deal. He should be interviewing for his next job, so I don’t think it’s intentional.

  • mape_ape

    A football team is not a democracy. Tomlin showed weak leadership by not taking charge.

  • will

    “Imma need 15”

  • Dan

    That was about the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen. I believe Tomlin that he let the players decide what do to, but what an idiotic decision. They should be ashamed to let AV be the only one to come out.

  • pittfan

    He’s making a poor case for being worth fiteen

  • And Baltimore got deconstructed in London. They will be jet lagged from travel all week. The Steelers in a redemption game. It will be so sweet!

  • Dan

    Actually I take it back, the dumbest thing is Tomlin saying, We allowed them run the ball “some”.

  • Rocksolid20

    Neither was helmet to helmet or horse collar or defenseless player a part of the football experience until this century , so what is your point . Things change in the game . And it
    is a game , not life .

  • Ike Evans

    All the defense has to do is make tackles and they are formidable…..idk what’s wrong with the offense….at first I was just saying guys are rusty because Tomlin didn’t play them much in preseason but idk…if they keep looking the way they are come week 5…some kind of change has to be made

  • gdeuce

    not true, both the Titans and Seahawks did not come out for the anthem

  • Rusted Out

    Through 3 games, he’s been super average. Nobody is going to offer him that huge contract at this rate. He needs to be that superstar he believes himself to be. More so, the Steelers need him to be better.

  • Dan

    I don’t agree with most things Trump says, but in this case all he said was it would be nice if owners exercised their rights as employers to not to let their employees disrespect the flag. Goodell, could have left his response to say just that the players are not violating rules, and they have 1st amendment blah blah blah. But when Goodell added his characterization that the President’s comments were devisive, he entered the political fray at that point. It was completely unecessary by the Commissioner and put the NFL on a political side. The NFL should just stay out of politics. I hear enough blabber about politics from everywhere else. Sometimes I just like to watch football.

  • JT

    That’s a fair counter. I definitely agree that it brought us together as a country in the early 2000s. But I just think if it’s causing this much of a distraction and division, maybe the NFL needs to find a consider finding another way to support its police and servicemen. Because I think the absolutely do. They’re just getting dragged into the BS, as Tomlin so eloquently put it.

  • JT

    lol congrats on finding the typo. Let me know if you’d actually like to debate the issue.

  • Rusted Out

    Mike Tomlin basically said Chicklo is now ahead of Harrison on the depth chart due to his play (sacks). I certainly did not think Chicklo surpassed Harrison by play or on the depth chart by the end of last season. I hold the opinion that most fans and people watching have, and that is that Harrison would have been better suited to play in this game. There was very little pass rush on Glennon, and they were pounding the rock around that left side.
    It is split milk now. If nothing else you would have to say Tomlin is consistent. Consistent at sticking with his poor personnel decisions, and consistent at losing to inferior teams his team should slaughter.

  • pittsburghjoe

    Good call Darth, its a troller.

  • will

    Not a true statistic.

  • JT

    Well said Ike. Perfect image to me was Big Al surrounded by stadium employees that couldn’t care less about what was happening. People are projecting their problems onto our game of football, and it’s gotten really old.

  • will

    Same issue as your post…..the “facts” are wrong.

  • Ryan Alderman

    I’m never happy when my favorite team loses…

  • Ryan Alderman

    Team not supposed to stand in the tunnel…

  • gdeuce

    if they won would it have still been a distraction?

  • Arthur Branch

    The way that man reacts to things trust me he was pissed in the White House today.

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    and i have the right to say screw giving my money to unpatriotic people

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    i dont know about the whole team but i did see that about an hour after the game

  • Steeler4EverNoMore

    well hes an idiot then…because its a total lie… and victim personality.

  • Lol, it isn’t your money anyway…

  • Jordan James

    It doesn’t matter what Trump says, you stupid liberals will find something to be outraged about.

  • Jordan James

    He actually works his a ss off for us ever day trying to turn this ship around after 8 years of divisive rhetoric and economic destruction of our country. He probably didn’t have time to watch or care today.

  • disqus_WrRvUyG2DA

    Saw this coming today. Another typical steelers loss that occurs every year.

  • Michael Cunningham

    You pull a stunt like leaving AV out to dry then for damn sure you better show up and play some strong ball. They did not.
    This team wasn’t ready to play football on a day that will be remembered for them sitting on their tails while their teammate stood outside with his hand on his heart.
    The picture , and the tape ( as Tomlin says ) never lies.
    Oh yeah .. and sitting DeeBo while Chick was flat on his back the entire game with tire treads on his uniform ??
    That’s the cherry on top of this coaching malpractice.
    OK … flame on 😀

  • Michael Conrad

    Wow what do you mean its not his money the TV contract is paid for by advertising revenue and if you buy anything advertised during NFL games you pay for the players.

  • I’m not a liberal. I actually voted for Trump, but I’m having buyer’s remorse. And it’s not just because of this, antagonizing the leader of North Korea, among other things…

    He is the leader of a damn country, act like it!

  • LHW

    Yeap. So the president said something mean (and actually what a good part of the population is actually thinking) and people have to get all preschool. I am glad I can filter all that out, be a proud American, show my patriotism, be strong and independent ,not let “mean” comments bother me, stay aware of and sensitive to important civil issues whilst maintaining objectivity.

    This whole thing is stupid and will change absolutely nothing. Nobody is actually talking about the cause – only the nature of the so called “protest.”

  • No really. Neither me, you or the poster above signs the players pay checks.

    By what you said above, if you ever buy anything, ever, then you are supporting them anyway. Since the game break advertises just about anything and everything on the open market anyway. From cars to food to alcohol to clothing to electronics to banks and credit lenders, etc.

    If you don’t want to support them, then you shouldn’t spend money anywhere at all, ever…

  • Delboka

    Haha right on

  • LHW

    Your argument is moot. Nobody is arguing their right to do so – I have not seen that at all, have you? Please show me where somebody attacked them saying players do not have the right to do so. The problem is with the message it sends by not honoring the symbolic tradition of the anthem. The message gets with all of this pointless white noise. Just don’t show the players during the anthem- focus on the flag, the crowd, the flyovers, the performers, or the players standing. My bet is AV just made the NFL a lot of money, fans are going to buy his jersey in record numbers.

  • Steve Johnson

    Bravo! Bravo!

  • Chad H

    He basically said the same thing Jerry Jones, a owner, said.

  • Jordan James

    Did you ever tell Obama that when he took the side of blacks over the police and was later proven wrong? Did you have a problem with Obama making speeches in Cairo apologizing for America? Did you have a problem when he by-passed Congress and created DACA? Did you have a problem when he gave the cartels in Mexico guns and didn’t track them causing the deaths of 1000s of people in Mexico and one border patrol? Did you have a problem when the IRS bullied conservatives and held up tax exempt status? Did you have a problem with pulling out of Iraq and allowing ISIS to form without resistance while calling them the JV team?

    Also, what did Obama do with North Korea? Nothing but encouraging aggression because every one knew he would do nothing, just like the red line in Syria.

    I could go on but you should get the message. Antagonizing someone that has been out of control throughout the Obama administration? Most people think he is doing a great job working with the UN to control North Korea but you don’t like his style so you are having remorse.

  • I didn’t vote for Obama either, And I agree with you on most points. The buyer’s remorse comes from his mouth with no filter. His bravado has other countries laughing at us. The peaceful protests demonstrated by players in the league, wasn’t directed at him personally, until today. The Steelers weren’t the only team to stay in the locker room during the anthem the Seahawks and the Titans did as well. I bet you didn’t know that, because you don’t look across the entire NFL.

    Oakland would have too but for a difference in night game rules (they would have forfeited both coin toss decisions and received an unsportsmanlike 15 yard penalty to start the game) they chose to interlock arms to show unity.

    Also, the Commish, the owners, and the NFLPA all backed the players against Trumps comments.

    Say what you will, I’m not going to continue a politically charge discussion on a site for Steelers and football fans.

  • Big White

    “we come out of locker rooms to play football games, and to be quite honest with you I didn’t appreciate our football team being drug into politics this weekend”

    Don’t blame Trump or anyone else. This has been going on for over a year now(even with Obama) and no one but the spoiled players are to blame. G-U-T-L-E-S-S

    Trump weasseled FIVE draft deferments to avoid serving the country and said John McCain was not a hero and a loser for being shot down flying missions in the same war Trump dodged.

    No one should be questioning anyone else’s patriotism, unless convicted of treason, colludes with the enemy or took up arms in a war v. the U.S.A..

  • O’Neal

    But it won’t, and who cares

  • nutty32

    Ever wonder why there haven’t been the mass arrests and punishment stemming from the opioid crisis that we had with the crack epidemic?
    Jeff Sessions certainly doesn’t seem like a reformed forward thinker in terms of the war on drugs & treating drug abuse as a disease.

  • LHW

    Did you say something?

  • Jaybird

    Is that a dig at the Rooneys?

  • Jaybird

    Bengals lost Paddy , so I guess the arm in arm thing doesn’t help you win . I think we might be better off concentrating on tackling than holding each other’s arms.

  • Jordan James

    Obama never offended other countries he offended Americans.

    Who cares if they are laughing at us. They are all communist/socialist. They are all jealous of America and want to fleece our country and bring it down to their level and they are using climate change and immigration to do it. Quit listening to the commie media feeding you this nonsense.

  • Mrs Bighead

    Heema get 6

  • Jordan James

    You sound like the scared keyboard bully. Can’t handle it can you, p ussy?

  • Commie? I was talking about Canadians, Australians, Europeans…

  • Ebella

    I am speaking as a lifelong Steeler fan and as an actual military family of 17 years. (United States Marine Corps) IT IS OFFENSIVE to us and the majority of the men and women who serve this country when ANY American or otherwise shows disrespect to the flag or the anthem. When your friends come home with a flag draped over them, you have a little more realistic perspective. We have proudly served so that these players could protest–and would do it again, and that is why they SHOULDnt do it on the field for all of the hard-working, FOOTBALL fans to see. It’s the one place we have to escape the reality that we may have to defend this country again at a moments notice. We do it for VERY little money compared to what these players are making. I bet not one of them refuses those dollar bills with patriotic symbols all over them. No protest there right? Villarreal understands the sacrifice that we have made so that we could all be FREE. That includes the freedom to leave this country that affords them the opportunity to live their dream of playing football for millions. It’s a JOKE to those of us who live in reality. It’s time this nonsense, childish, selfish behavior STOPS. We need to get a grip. People, wake up. Football GAMES are big business, but this is neither the time or the place for politics. Believe me, Marines put up with a TON of bullshit, we don’t question it, we take our paycheck and do our job. Then we go home and live as we please. They need to do the same.
    P.S. All service members must salute all colors (flags) not encased. This includes the flags of all nations in which you are serving. Do you think we all believe in the principles Afghanistan was founded on? NO. But we salute out of respect.

    I’m a centrist who doesn’t care who you sleep with and remove myself from the abortion issue and don’t think I’m the one to flip a switch to kill someone. Had a good convo with a lib friend of mine yesterday. We agreed that 60% of people agree or can compromise on 70% of issues. We all want good infrastructure,
    education, defense, safe place to live and opportunity to support our family. All else is BS. Voted for DJT but he has the propensity to carefully aim & shoot his own foot.

  • Jordan James

    Dude liberals are commies. Did you not pay attention to the last election? Look at what they talk about. They want socialism which is just another name for communism. They want the government to control everything. Look at Obamacare and now they are talking about single payer.

    That’s what these countries are now. The EU is run by a group of elites and they have destroyed Western Civilization with all the refugees coming in. They control speech and threaten to imprison speech they consider wrong or hate speech. You have to wake up.

    Lol

    How cute

  • Mark Cogley

    I was ashamed today I was at work when I heard what was going on iv been on 12 hours 7 days a week since trump turned the ship around I said not my steelers can’t be iv been a fan for 47 years it’s the fans team not some guy who plays and goes back to Texas to root for Dallas when his days are done playing, they were at work act like it i can’t imigan a reason I would watch a game ever again. It’s a sad sad day in steelers country

  • Isn’t Trump an elite who with Friday’s comments are trying to control free speech? Telling the owners they should fire the SOBs?

  • Jordan James

    🙂

  • Jordan James

    He’s standing up for America.

    Do you ever wonder why these players never go into detail of what they are protesting? They don’t dare go into detail. To them it is about hating whitey under the guise of police brutality.

    The fake narrative of these protesters were exposed by Seattle Seahawks DE Bennett getting arrested and lying about what happened. TMZ exposed the type of nonsense these protesters are selling.

    You know what Obama and Clinton would have done? Sick the IRS on them.

  • O’Neal

    Im quite sure you wouldn’t scare me ever boy

  • nikki stephens

    Trump is the agent, at this time, to allow football fans a voice and
    perhaps a single finger to a dictator who has continually blurred the
    lines of punishable and non punishable behavior, has been unreliable and
    uneven in his penalties on players transgressions, and has used his
    commissioner position to bully states whose citizens do not want males,
    who claim to be females, in their bathrooms at stadiums across the
    country. He finds nothing divisive about a whole month of attention and
    decries a month of pink to promote an organization which aids planned
    parenthood. He forces and promotes women not based on merit but
    diversity. He champions that diversity from the offices, locations of
    games, to the sideline reporters. He fines players for wearing
    Pro-American messages and 9/11 tributes on cleats. He promotes liberal
    causes then rejects Jerry Jones from placing a sticker on the Cowboys
    helmet to remember the slaughtered cops in Dallas by a black lives
    matters nut job. Many have had it.

    Which brings us to
    Kapernick….. he (Goodell) has allowed and blurred the lines of one
    segment of the game day ritual. A ritual which has been respected and
    carried out for decades. He wraps himself in false defenses like the
    NFL won’t deny anyone their constitutional rights when no one has said a
    player can’t protest or be active on THEIR TIME. So Trump speaks what
    many are thinking and all hell breaks loose in 12 hours. He is all most
    uniformally declared divisive but the original divisive cast (kapernick
    and company) are held out as possible social justice heroes and rarely
    questioned about their motives and rational. They are rarely criticized
    for hijacking the game day anthem as a means to advance their agenda
    and CREATE a DIVISIVE ATMOSPHERE. If you don’t trust me, google how
    many reports of the decisive trump come up vs the “divisive” google
    search for obama in September of 2016 when he said what many red state
    Americans deemed divisive on multiple occasions.

  • Jordan James

    It’s hard to scare low IQ idiots, boy. So you’re probably right.

  • SMH…

  • Josh Gustad

    Being someone who has his father in Iraq (Army), I have no issue with those sitting out the national anthem. Our military serves so people can have the freedoms and rights we have as Americans. Would I sit during the national anthem? No, but I will not condemn those who do.

  • O’Neal

    Have an iq of 150+ boy, barking up the wrong tree.

  • Jordan James

    LOL and a liar. lol

  • O’Neal

    So your high iq tells you a PRESIDENT should be deliberately causing division. You trumpers are so f&$#@ng stupid it is laughable. Go burn a church you racist white fa$#@t

  • O’Neal

    No need to lie to scum. Whatever you believe is wrong anyways, why change the trend.

  • Jordan James

    Lol, are you crying, snowflake? Run to your safe space.

  • O’Neal

    Lol, i would beat shhh down your leg boy

  • Jordan James

    At least when it comes to Mensa quizzes, the oldest IQ tests in the world. Wahi recently scored a perfect score of 162. It’s believed that both Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein only had an IQ of 160.

    You say that your 150. LOL Upset little snowflake.

  • O’Neal

    Not a good reader are ya

  • O’Neal

    I have no reason to make shhh up on an anonymous forum

  • O’Neal

    Not upset at all, scum don’t bother me. Its fun to mess with the little scummies though, you know how you do with toddlers.

  • O’Neal

    You aren’t a killer

  • Jordan James

    I don’t do anything with toddlers but apparently you do, Einstein.

    A nice round number, 150. lol

  • O’Neal

    Sure you don’t.

  • Jordan James

    Must be that 150 talking.

  • O’Neal

    I don’t care what you think, because you obviously don’t think very well

  • Jordan James

    If you are going to lie at least make it reasonably believable. I’ll help you. Try being an IQ of 75 and then it will be more believable.

  • O’Neal

    You from west virginia? Lol

  • Jordan James

    If you think just making things up out of the blue is an intellectual way to debate or argue, it isn’t. Sad.

  • Jordan James

    Obama started this division, right?

  • O’Neal

    Sure bucko. Grab me some cope and a 6 pack of Genny

  • O’Neal

    It was a question dummy

  • O’Neal

    Hence the QUESTION MARK

  • O’Neal

    I don’t make things up, but trump sure does.

  • Jordan James

    Is Obama your hero?

  • O’Neal

    Not in the least

  • O’Neal

    No he didn’t, racists like you did

  • Jordan James

    I bet he is. He is your god, how pathetic. You thought he would pay your bills and give you a free phone.

  • Jordan James

    lol pathetic little trash that can’t take the truth.

  • O’Neal

    How stupid u are

  • Jordan James

    Now who is the scared internet bully?

  • Vincent Vega

    Tomlin is angry because he’s caught in between a conflict of his support for equality but at the same time his job as a coach to have your team focused on football and not protests. Well Mike your gonna have to decide because players are thinking about life after football and how the world will be as more important than playing football for a few years. Good luck with that.

  • O’Neal

    What truth, white supremacists propaganda? You are an idiot. Get real.

  • Jordan James

    He left you poor and stupid while he got rich, you stupid fool.

  • O’Neal

    Sure

  • Jordan James

    Been listening to the leftist media, huh? So tell me, if a white person supports white people like blacks support blacks, is the white person racist?

  • Vincent Vega

    Really pushing that work thing, nobody cares how much you been working. Just do your job YOU chose.

  • O’Neal

    Dude you are dumb

  • Jordan James

    Your 150 IQ needs some work, boy.

  • O’Neal

    But you are racist, whatever hypothetical shhh you are talking about is not reality. I think for myself, not what someone else tells me to

  • Jordan James

    Another amazing retort from the 150 IQ. You’re on a role. Stop showing off.

  • Jordan James

    Explain this equality thing to me.

  • Vincent Vega

    Equality toward black men to be treated as a person compared to other(s) and not as a criminal by white officers. Anything else?

  • Jordan James

    Funny how Obama brought in the DOJ and the FBI to Ferguson and other places and never found this and they were really trying to find something to.

    What about the fact that most of the urban areas are run by liberal black democrats and the police chiefs are always black. I would assume that most of the police are black to.

    In all the high profile cases in the country there was one common denominator that caused the police to react and it was the black not following orders and not all the incidents were white officers.

    But you are right blacks are not treated equal. They are given affirmative action; in any government job or really any job concerned about quotas they are hired over every other race no matter what qualifications and they are paid more. It is particularly true in government jobs.

    When it comes to college admission, they get in at Berkeley with 850 SATs while whites and asians get left out with 1350 scores.

    They aren’t equal in crime either. Nobody competes with the rate of crime by blacks, especially violent crime committed by blacks. Go into any predominantly black neighborhood and you will find welfare, drugs, violence. People in these areas don’t put bars on the windows and doors because it looks cool.

  • Matthew Marczi

    Both of you stop the crap.

  • Matthew Marczi

    Both of you stop the crap. Speak civilly or don’t bother speaking.

  • Vincent Vega

    I think your off topic but I am aware of all this. Stick to the topic being discussed but thx…

  • Jordan James

    lol No this is the topic. You said equality. It’s fair game. This protest is about race. This is why these players who protest never go in detail about what they are protesting because when you start breaking it down, things don’t look so good for them.

  • Vincent Vega

    Whats so funny? You asked for a definition of equality pertaining to the topic(Mike Tomlin press conference). Your on the wrong page for generalizing a certain race. These are million dollar athletes and lack of details is what keeps this thing going for them for the uninformed.

  • Gavin Morgan

  • Sputtter

    Go find the proof yourself! Jeez us. Google is as much your friend as mine.

    No, not at all. Just the facts.

    No, not at all. Just the true facts.

  • Nolrog

    Uh, no. It’s your responsibility to provide the proof to back up your statements, not mine.

  • John

    I can show you cops shooting unarmed black men. Is that good enough?

  • John

    Does that make you happy?

  • John

    I don’t agree what that at all. What I see here is a bunch of people who misinterpreted what the Steelers were trying to accomplish. They wanted to avoid all this but people in this country are either stupid,jingoistic, or willfully ignorant of the reason players started kneeling in the first place.

  • Conserv_58

    The Steelers are a reflection of this country. Obama’s presidency is directly responsible for deepening that division

  • Conserv_58

    Trump is who he is. You and millions more knew that about him during the campaign. It was his brash, unvarnished and shoot-from-the-hip style of speaking that was his key selling point for the vast majority of people that both supported and voted for him. To now expect him to be someone other than the guy you voted for is being dishonest with yourself.

  • He did with the Steelers. No Steelers player took part in the 2 year protest Kap started, until yesterday. Before yesterday, there were only a handful of guys demonstrating their right to protest. The president’s divisive comments made on Friday united the entire league and every single player stood together against his words. Commish, Owners, ad NFLPA behind them 100%.

  • Steelerfan56

    You’re glad they lost? Are you ravens fan?

  • Conserv_58

    As I said above, you knew what you were getting from him during his campaign. Trump wiped the floor with the other republican candidates for the very same thing you now find fault with. It was his brash and unvarnished speaking style that struck home with his supporters. It was because he didn’t sound and act like a politician that won him the republican nomination. He said and did things that are not “presidential” during his campaign and you voted for him. Now, all of a sudden, you’re embarrassed by him because he doesn’t act presidential. It’s not Trump that has the problem because he hasn’t changed. It’s voters, like you that can’t handle hearing the leftist controlled main stream media relentlessly put him down.

    As for Goodell, the owners and the NFLPA backing the players and siding against Trump’s position I didn’t expect less from a left leaning entertainment business.

  • Lil Smitty

    The flying wedge was outlawed years ago.

  • Conserv_58

    On the face of it one could conclude that. On the other hand, there is no disputing the fact that the leftists have and are still trying to do away with the first amendment. Look what’s going on on our liberal college campuses. There is a direct and illegal assault on the Constitutional rights of non liberals. Throughout obama’s presidency the left has been attemting to position our Constitution as being an old, out dated, and insignificant document that no longer has a place in contemporary America. The Constitution has never been under direct attack as it was during obama’s presidency and it still is.

  • Lil Smitty

    They are life long Republicans.

  • Conserv_58

    He may not be the least bit refined, but I’ll take that after having had to endure eight years of obama’s and his leftist ilk’s relentless persuit of fundamentally transforming this country into another failed euro-socialist utopia. Obamacare is the largest transformation of wealth in the history of man kind. It’s purpose had nothing to do with the health and welfare of the population. It had everything to do with the government taking complete control of the health care industry.

  • WilliamSekinger

    Regardless of what was said, and regardless of what people’s intentions were, I saw a member of the Steelers (an ex Army Ranger) standing at attention honoring the flag and his country. His teammates and other members of the organization were no where in sight. This organization should be ashamed of the optics they displayed this weekend period. They displayed a team that is fractured by the latest events and they simply can not chose to hide themselves away in their locker rooms with a former member of the armed forces on their team.

  • I voted for him because of who his opposition was. I know Obama wants to re-write the constitution.

    The one thing I liked about Obama was he was a great public speaker. You don’t have to agree with him or even like him to see that.

    Trump is a joke. If there would have been a 3rd party worthy of the vote that is where I would have cast it.

    The president is suppose to run this country, and some of his policies I like while others I don’t.

    The problem is his words finally caught up to him. Yesterday the players stood united against him. They were all disrespected by the president himself. He forced the players into action. A week ago there was a handful of players using their platform to affect social change where they perceived injustices. Yesterday the entire league (players, commish, owners, and PA) all stood together against one man and his words. The president made this thing bigger than it ever would have been if he would have kept his mouth shut. He should stay in politics where he belongs.

  • Larry LaDarius Hill

    You people are morons of idolatry. Like Tomlin said, don’t drag the rest of the world in your bullshit. If you want to worship and pledge your pathetic lives to the flag, thats your problem, not the rest of the world. Stupid so-called Patriots. A true American is one that recognizes the fact that all men are not only equal in rights, but are also separate in the beliefs. Live and let live. You do you and we will do us. Don’t let your personal beliefs cause you to judge, unless you yourself don’ mind being judged for your beliefs on a personal level.

  • Jordan James

    You just proved my point. When idiots like you make comments about how Tomlin has to try and support equality and coaching. I didn’t generalize anything, you did and I called your b*lls*it out. Just face it, you got caught saying sh*t that you can’t back up. It sounds cool and gives you some sense of pride in going along with the cool kids. It’s pathetic because you are ignoring the truth. Tomlin and the protester are flat wrong and they know it or to stupid to realize it and you just go right along with it.

  • Vincent Vega

    Couldn’t get thru without folding like the chump you are, had to start with the insults.Your nothing but a troll! Contradicting every comment, then insulting ppl. Grow up little boy and someone might take your BS seriously.Your just here to argue and bye the way, I support Trump and agree they should be fired for kneeling during anthem but I know the facts of the issue I’m talking about, if you weren’t such a dumbass you could see that. Get over yourself, your not as smart as you think you are. Back under the bridge TROLL!

  • Jordan James

    Don’t cry because your way of looking at life has been destroyed. I hate when idiots like you make comments that sound amazing except for the fact that they are shallow and pathetic. Stupid loser.

  • Vincent Vega

    “Destroyed my way of looking at life” lmao. Your caught up in your own hate to not realize when you sound ridiculous. Your not changing anyone or anything, just more of the hate because you were beat up as a child by someone black and you think this will change it. lmao Such a moron!

  • Jordan James

    You make this statement like you are some amazing philosopher. Tomlin had to choose between the support for equality and coaching his team but when pressed to explain you can’t.

    Why do you liberals just make up stuff when you have no clue of what you are talking about. Beat up as a child? Seriously? Keep talking because it supports my point.

  • John Smith

    Blacks can only attack in packs. Go and find videos of one on one fights. It’s not pretty my friend.

    John McCain is a traitor who destroyed a ship and killed people.

    Ryan Mallet

  • Vincent Vega

    I am an amazing philosopher! What you didn’t know? You can’t contain giving me compliments, thats twice now because you like the way I put it lol. It was explained in the op but I know you have trouble understanding (head trauma). I still don’t know what your point is besides arguing with ppl in a comment section???…also NOT a liberal, your pathetic!

  • nutty32

    Are you ex-military?

  • Vincent Vega

    Hook, Line, and Sinker! Struck a nerve. Got whipped by a brotha too huh, now your just an angry boy with no outlet. lmao

  • NCSteel

    You are so money right now Ike Evans.

    They are taking something that unites us and letting it split us up.

    They are football players, not the pope or the dali lama or something. Giving them power by caring what they do outside of football is ridiculous, take care if your own house and feel as you feel, heck it’s American!

    We need to be united today in our disgust for the offense and run defense.
    Not turning on each other.

    You’re so money brother.
    Just wanted you to know.

  • Jordan James

    I didn’t say you were an amazing philosopher. Another made up statement. Keep going.

    That’s your “story”. Anybody who has fought enough has been whipped but yeah “YOU, NEVER got beat up! Sure, someday someone will believe you! smh!

    Grammar insults, really! pfffft!

  • Jordan James

    Hey John Smith, do you go on the DC site?

  • John Smith

    Daily caller? yeah

  • Jordan James

    This site is full of leftist. Sports fans are so uninformed. They just say whatever is popular.

  • Ike Evans

    Thanks man, I really appreciate it and couldn’t agree more

  • Steelnads

    Well, I appreciate your comments and I believe I understand the point you’re trying to make. I wasn’t trying to make an argument about whether they were right or not to stay off the field, I was specifically talking about the “honor” part of the initial post.

    Your point about the message it sends (by not honoring the symbolic tradition of the anthem) might be spot-on, but asserting that no one is arguing their right to do so feels like a bit of a copout. And yes, I’m sure the NFL is going to make their fare share of money out of all of this, just as the president’s re-election campaign will undoubtedly see an uptick in donations from supporters.

    I realize that what you or I think or how we feel about the situation is immaterial to the fact that we have the right to do so. My bet is the NFL will either go the route you mention during the next collective bargaining agreement or stop playing the national anthem before games altogether. I hope we’re both wrong, because I can’t see either of those options helping to foster in a less divisive conversation.

    Be well.

  • LHW

    Great points – I know it does depend on one’s perspective. I don’t think the league wins no matter what they decide, such is human nature. I think the majority of fans want politics out of football (and most other aspects of their lives too!). Imagine how great upcoming Sundays would be without all of this hooplah. I appreciate the well articulated thoughts. I hope we can both enjoy the rest of the season without all of the distraction!

  • Bradys_Dad

    Just another, in the very long (and growing) line, of losses to teams we
    should have beaten. I’m still emotional over yesterday so please take
    this commentary in that context; why the Steelers will not surpass the
    Patriots for AFC kingdom is due to game preparation, coaching and
    execution like yesterday. Inside the 5 and you go empty back set with
    one of the best RBs in the game? Repeatedly? A much hyped D line that
    gives up rushing yards like trick-or-treat goodies? To kids in lousy
    costumes. The frustration is mounting everywhere. This team, IMHO, has
    superior talent (sans Brady) to the Patriots but will continue to be
    out-coached and under-prepared until they get their stuff together. Right
    now this organization is the definition of a lost opportunity. Get it
    together men.

  • Vincent Vega

    YOU brought it up! It got into your dropped head somehow. Keep trying troll!

  • Jordan James

    You comprehend at a grade school level.

  • Vincent Vega

    IKR! I was thinking the same thing and just a little higher than you, don’t feel bad, It’s not by much!

  • jackbequik

    You do know he didn’t intend to go out far enough to be seen, don’t you?

  • jackbequik

    He didn’t intend to go all the way out of the tunnel…according to Villaneueva himself. While he is likely full of courage, he didn’t intend to demonstrate it that way.

  • Jordan James

    You’re the one making pathetic statements about equality and then telling me we shouldn’t talk about on this forum. What a pathetic pos. Next time you make a stupid statement be prepared to back it up, little weenee.

  • Vincent Vega

    Can you hear yourself? Your a child! “Little weenee”? Really? And I did back it up but you couldn’t comprehend…as usual!

  • Jordan James

    Wow you are delusional and stupid.

  • Vincent Vega

    Out of bullets I see “click, click”. Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb!

  • Jordan James

    You never had bullets.

  • Jordan James

    YOu never had bullets and quit playing the victim card.

    You made a statement that you could not back up because you want to be cool. If you can’t back it up then don’t sit at the big boy table.

    You deserve no respect.

  • Vincent Vega

    Your respect means nada to me, your a buffoon!

  • Jordan James

    I don’t care, poor little victim. Go kneel in the corner, bi itch

  • Vincent Vega

    Whatever you say cornball!” Now go get your shine box!”

  • Jordan James

    What’s funny is that you don’t have left nut moderators deleting comments that don’t tow the line to protect you from criticism here. Not used to that are ya? 🙂

  • Matthew Marczi

    Speaking of which, stop making abusive comments or maybe something will be done about it. Disagree with people all you want but show a little respect. Everybody I see doing this gets the same warning.

  • Vincent Vega

    You haven’t said anything, your too corny!

  • Matthew Marczi

    Let it go, move on. Stop dropping insults toward other people. If you can’t express yourself civilly, you may have to take a timeout.

  • Jordan James

    Are you a leftist?

  • Vincent Vega

    I’ll drop insults when I’m insulted, can’t you read?

  • Vincent Vega

    You haven’t said anything, you’re too corny and immature for this.

  • Matthew Marczi

    I’m a moderator. Do you not clearly see that I gave a warning to the ‘leftist’ that you were throwing a mutual hissy fit with? Just relax and speak like an adult, or else you’ll have to seek a safe space elsewhere. And once again, this goes for everybody who I see spreading hostile or abusive insults toward other users.

  • Jordan James

    I couldn’t care less.

  • Matthew Marczi

    Feel free to leave of your own accord then.

  • Jordan James

    Feel free to kick me out then. I noticed that you deleted some of my comments. I get the feeling you are a leftist that must make sure everyone agrees with whatever blacks want them to believe.

  • Matthew Marczi

    I get the feeling that you have a victim complex. The site runs a heavy comment filter that automatically pushes comments that contain links or most insults and certain other things into a moderating queue. This is something that is done by the website without human intervention. I have literally never touched a single one of any post you have ever made.

  • Jordan James

    I have a victim complex? Did you read that somewhere? It almost sounds clever.

  • Matthew Marczi

    You just said that you noticed that I’ve done something that I never did. Some comments of yours evidently didn’t post and you automatically assumed that somebody is working against you with an agenda to silence you. Yeah, that sounds like a victim complex to me. What does it sound like to you?

  • Jordan James

    Somebody deleted it so it wasn’t a victim complex because it actually happened.

    Can you kick me off or not?

  • Matthew Marczi

    Nobody deleted it. I already told you your comments would have been filtered into a moderating queue that would require a human to go into to personally approve. The filters are put in place in order to eliminate spam bots. Believe me, if you spent a day here with the filters turned off, the comments section would be unnavigable with their garbage posts.

    According to Dave, I should have banning powers, but I’ve never used it before. I’m not interested in moderating. It’s not something that I find to be entertaining or satisfying. All I did was ask you not to hurl insults, I think that’s pretty fair.

  • Jordan James

    lol then go away. You don’t scare me.

  • Matthew Marczi

    Did I trigger you or something? Do you want me to go into the moderating queue and look at your posts? Will that make you feel better?

  • Matthew Marczi

    If you do, then I’ll stop you. I gave you a warning not to insult people, so if you continue to do so, I’ll put an end to it.

  • Jordan James

    Where do you idiots come up with this stuff? You threatened to kick me off. Read your own statements. I called your bluff.

  • Vincent Vega

    IDGAF! Nobody cares about your moderator power sep you. Get a life!

  • Matthew Marczi

    I’m a writer here and the way that people conduct themselves on my site is something I value. I don’t care about being a moderator, but I do care about the site. I’ve never actually had to use moderating power before in the four years I’ve been here, but the outsiders coming in here over the past several days because of all of this political stuff is creating chaos. I already told you to stop acting like a fool, so the next time I see you do it, I’ll ban you. You now know the situation, so you control what happens next. It’s that simple.

  • Matthew Marczi

    It wasn’t a bluff. You continued to hurl insults, so you’re gone now. You were warned. Bye.

  • Vincent Vega

    AGAIN IDGAF! F U AND YOUR SITE!

  • Matthew Marczi

    Well it’s a good thing you don’t care then, given that you were warned to behave like a normal person and chose not to.
