He did it! After his players did the unthinkable, the owner of the anti-American NFL team Pittsburgh Steelers sent an open letter to the public. This man is equally responsible for what just happened because he did NOTHING to prevent the huge shame of his team. Like their boycott of the anthem wasn’t enough, the coach of this team insulted the brave army ranger who decided to go out of the tunnel and pay his respect to the national anthem. In panic, the owner of the team wrote the letter below.
After the Steelers team refused to come out of the locker room during the National Anthem, fans begin burning their jerseys and now the owner is desperately trying to salvage the team.

Steelers owner Art Rooney II sent out a letter to fans on Monday explaining the disrespectful actions.. but not apologizing.To Steelers Nation:
I want to reach out to you, the members of Steelers Nation, based on what I believe is a misperception about our players’ intentions in not taking the field for the National Anthem in Chicago. The intentions of Steelers players were to stay out of the business of making political statements by not taking the field. Unfortunately, that was interpreted as a boycott of the anthem – which was never our players’ intention.
Our players come from many different backgrounds and are united by what it means to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are active in their communities and participate regularly in events designed to give back to those communities. And they appreciate the support they get from Steelers fans around the country and here at home.
I also know that our players have tremendous respect for the members of our military services, including their teammate Alejandro Villanueva. There was never any desire on the part of our players to show disrespect for our service members.
Yesterday, I received an email from a Steelers fan who said tell the players to just play football. That is exactly what they wanted to do. They wanted their sole focus to be on playing the game, while also coming together as a unified team.
The main thing we can do is learn from this and strive to come together remaining unified as a football team. I believe we are capable of accomplishing this with the support of our fans.
Steelers Nation is made up of the best fans in the National Football League. We appreciate your continued support of our players, coaches, and staff.
Art Rooney, II
What do you think about this? Steelers owner disappointed us even more. Is there still HOPE for the NFL? You, the fans, are the ones who are going to decide the fate of the most popular American football league. This shouldn’t have happened. After years of bad seasons, this is the top of the disappointment.
