I really hate that the Trump administration has brought the NFL into its daily reality show. It's not like he didn't keep the plane ready for a quick take-off & just using the NFL to get Brownie points with the Trump base.

Note to mods: It's not us (me), bringing politics to football but them.

If I recall Trump tried to get an NFL franchise once, was turned down so got a USFL franchise trying to leverage that into and NFL team. When ultimately unsuccessful it is a good bet this is his highly publicized never forget, I will get you back somehow someway personality.

A politician doing something insincere to gain leverage with his consituents.....SHOCKING!!!

No, it's you who brought politics to the forum. Unless what the VP does or doesn't do affects the Steelers somehow. Nice try though.

Geez. A $250,000 ticket and expenses just to leave before the kickoff. That's got to be the biggest rip off in NFL seating.

Maybe Goodell should pay for it since he let this totally get out of hand for no reason. Since he's making like $39 mil or so. And what's the end game for the players? What is it that they want in the end. This is totally silly with no clear goal and I'm tired of looking at this crap. Mods...delete this drival.

Ok, you don't think it doesn't involve the Steelers over the players using kneeling during the national anthem. Well what I read today about Antonio Brown vs. big Ben concerning the kneeling controversy definitely does & with Trump/Pence making it a question of patriotism when that never was the point of it is just making it a much bigger issue & division on the Steelers.

The players brought politics into this in the beginning. Do you not think politicians will respond? This whole thing is pointless. There is no end game. It's a distraction and simply annoying. This site says that politics are not to be a part of the boards yet here we are....talking about the National Anthem, kneeling in protest of it, and who is doing what wrong. I just want to come here for football...Steeler Football in fact. Nothing else! You moderators need to kill this drivel!

Never understood these pleas for moderators to delete or lock a thread. Don't want to read it? Don't read it! And most of all don't post on it and keep it going!

I don't disagree just that we can no longer escape the reality that politics has now become part of football. I hope the networks just show the performer singing the national anthem & help lessen all this controversy.

Exactly, think before you post, it's right on front page of Steelers threads......

Politics have no place in football & the players kneeling should never have been construed as not respecting the flag. Unfortunately as it became a dispute between AB & Ben, it is now Steeler-related. I am not being pro- or anti- Trump/Pence just that they should stay out of NFL matters & let it deal with its issues by itself..

The reason we ask for these types of threads to be deleted is because this type of thing killed another board. Between politics and other things that ran rapant it became
a shit hole. That's why this silly drivel needs to be deleted. It's a cancer. Hey, I have my views about politics just like the other guy! You want to hear them on this Steeler Board? You can be my Huckleberry!

Ok, I'll not mention about this stuff anymore & if no one else does, the thread will go lower & soon go unnoticed until it is buried or deleted.

If it is not disrespecting the flag and the anthem blue, then why pray tell, did these fucking idiots stand at rapt attention for God save the queen?

They were guests in a foreign country. It's being courteous. And what kind of statement would it have made? NFL players against Parliament?

Politics, ESPECIALLY right now are more polarizing than ever.

This thread is an excuse to take a shot at one party by people aligned with the other party.

Weak. And total bullshit.

So they were being courteous? Must mean they were being discourteous in response to their own country's flag. So much for it not being an act of disrespect

Not really Barry. I agree with the Secretary of State, that the president is an absolute fucking moron. That said this Kneeling or sitting for the anthem is total fucking bullshit
