Skip Bayless Criticizes Steelers’ Villanueva For Being Only Team Member to Come Out For Anthem (Mediaite)
During the playing of the National Anthem prior to the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Chicago Bears game on Sunday, left tackle Alejandro Villanueva was the only Steeler to come out and stand.
According to Pennlive.com, Villanueva’s action caught teammates by surprise — as it had been voted on a day earlier, and decided by a slim majority that the team would remain in the locker room.
“I was looking for 100 percent participation,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said during his post-game news conference. “We were going to be respectful of our football team.”
