And this is another reason I hate American football. The cost. To be a fan will cost you so much money. To spend all that money to watch a team disrespect this country’s, and MY, flag and anthem, then have that protest become such a distraction that they play their worst game of the season, is just an outrage. Pittsburg ownership and management needs to stop supporting these players, and start supporting those who pay them: the fans. Fans are walking out of games, or aren’t showing up at all. They run a business, not a political party. They need to start acting like it.
