NFL stumbles onto a political minefield with new National Anthem policy

The league’s decision to exclude or penalize players for peaceful protests is ill-conceived and divisive.

“Here in America, we are descended in blood and spirit from revolutionists and rebels. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.” (Dwight D. Eisenhower)

In announcing its decision to mandate players’ on-field observances of the national anthem, the NFL has stumbled into a dangerous territory where existing racial and political divisions likely...

While league officials feel that is a good compromise, Burns said Thursday that the policy has the potential to be...

The Pittsburgh Steelers needed to find someone who could at least attempt to replace Ryan Shazier, and Jon Bostic might just be the man for the job.

Personally, I was surprised to see the Pittsburgh Steelers re-sign wide receiver Justin Hunter during the offseason even though they were able to do so for the veteran minimum once again. Now that Hunter is back in the fold, he probably has a halfway decent shot at making the Steelers 53-man roster for a second […]

Will Steelers’ trade of Martavis Bryant be a case of addition by subtraction?

The Pittsburgh Steelers believe they’ve improved their roster with the draft-day trade of Martavis Bryant and second-round selection of James Washington. At first glance, the evidence seems to support this theory.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a reputation for making shrewd business decisions as an organization. Their status as a successful NFL franchise has been built mainly via an ultra-conservative approach, both with their personnel and finances.

This modus operandi doesn’t lend...
