A patriot and former Pittsburgh Steelers fan, Robert Williams has a few choice words for the Steelers who hid in the locker room during the national anthem before their game in Chicago. The Steelers exited the tunnel after the anthem to a loud chorus of boos from the fans on hand.
The lone dissenter to the locker room hideout was Alejandro Villanueva, a Pittsburgh Steeler offensive lineman, West Point graduate, and U.S. Army Ranger veteran who deployed three times to Afghanistan. Villanueva was the only Steeler to defy Coach Tomlin and leave the Steeler’s locker room, going onto the field to show his respect for our flag, for our country, for those who have served, and for those serving today to ensure our freedom to enjoy what is beginning to look like a silly game.
“You know something, we have morals in this country,” declares Williams. “We stand for this country. My great uncle’s bones are lying in the bottom of Pearl Harbor, alright? For this country. For the flag. For your freedom to play in the NFL and to say whatever you want to say. But you do not disrespect the flag and the country and the Constitution and why we are here and why we have our freedoms.… so watch this stuff burn!”
