The NFL and the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to start their Monday Night Football game without the National Anthem according to the Denver Post.
The game had been delayed 25 minutes due to weather.
The comments on the article show the classlessness of some folks, combined with probable unpatriotism on the part of at least a few of them.
people are so sensitive these days skipping the national anthem one time will not “take away our patriotism” hell there’s a team called the patriots
Typical clear thinking. Skipping the national anthem won’t hurt patriotism but the name of a team will help it.
Listening to some knucle head singing a our song in the middle of a stadium makes you a Patriot? So, if they sang it twice does that make you twice the patroit?
Another brain surgeon here. Apparently tradition means nothing to him, so at least its easy to see why he’s clueless about this.
OH MY GOD THEY DIDN’T SING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM!!!! LETS CANCEL THE REST OF THE SEASON!!!
Now this is simply overreaction the other way. It’s obvious by the use of ALL CAPS that this individual is severely upset by the incident, but canceling the rest of the season seems a bit much. Or, alternatively, he’s a moron.
GIVE ME A BREAK. With all the sh*t going on in the world, someone has to get BENT about THIS??? PUH-LEEZE. This is why I don’t own a gun.
First, the only folks I see getting “BENT” over this are those who don’t think that skipping the national anthem matters. Honestly, it looks pretty much the same anytime anyone’s patriotism is questioned. For folks who say it doesn’t matter, they sure seem to be hypersensitive about it.
Secondly, what the hades does owning a gun have to do with anything?
Give me a break. with all the crap going on in the world, someone has to get bent about this??? puh-leeze. FInd somethingmore important to worry about, people.
This is hilarious. One minute after the “BENT” poster who doesn’t own a gun posted, she posted again. This message is very similar, but we can already see the fire going out. Not only is it “bent” instead of “BENT”, but the gun doesn’t even enter the conversation.
Oh come on people, get real. The damn song is too long as it is, and really, how patriotic is the song anyway? It’s a song about fighting, a battle we lost i might add. The melody is from an old English drinking song. America is a better song, better melody, and describes our country in a much better way. and is way shorter.
“A battle we lost i might add”? Is he British? If so, what do we bloody care about what he thinks about the song? If he’s American, he’s historically challenged (at best), a sadly common condition.
At this point, Murdoc gives up. It’s really sad to see these folks insisting loudly that this doesn’t matter and why is anyone talking about it and who cares and on and on and on. They sure seem to care. Probably just trying to show how patriotic they are by dissenting. “Hah! Hah! Look at me, demonstrating my patriotism by insulting the Star Spangled Banner!“
