Hats off to a real man [Update: Hats back on]

Updated and bumped: According to a story posted over at Ace of Spades, Villanueva is now apologizing and saying his appearance on the field was more or less an accident. Much different from his previous story. Maybe the guy was yielding to SJW pressure? He's a former Ranger who served in Afghanistan, so I respect him and his service to his country. But if, as he claims now, he was on board with his team's decision, then he has let a lot of people down.

Have we, indeed, become such a pusillanimous people, so fearful of the left's insane and unjustified obloquy, that even our heroes begin to cower?

Alejandro Villanueva, a former Army Ranger and Afghan war veteran, defied his team and was the only Steeler to come out on the field for the national anthem.

His coach offered a rebuke, stating that the team was looking for "100% participation":"Like I said, I was looking for 100 percent participation, we were gonna be respectful of our football team.”

Well, you ignorant prick, what if the team had decided, as a team, to march out on the field under a swastika? Would you be looking for 100% participation, then? You know, so as to be respectful to a lot of millionaire lunkheads who had voted to do something supremely stupid and disrespectful to the fans?

Screw you overpaid, overprivileged drama queens! I hope a couple of years from now you'll have fewer viewers than college field hockey teams.

I lost all interest in the NFL years ago. This is all just the culmination of everything that made me lose interest in the first place, so I'm not surprised, or disappointed.

As Rush says, the left politicizes everything.

I think the coach dumped on Al because the coach was embarrassed. Then the coach probably talked about how one's paycheque is dependent on getting field time, and who controls that. Therefore apologise abjectly to the max.

Unfortunately, the coach may have more problems:

Probably right about that.

I like Minicapt's explanation. The difference between a harsh but fair coach and a narcissistic bully is how they deal with stuff likes this.

Your wish for fewer viewers than college hockey teams is a dead cert if they go ahead with allowing transgender cheerleaders.

Transgender cheerleaders. OMG I spat out my coffee reading that.
