Pittsburgh Steelers player who stood alone for anthem has top selling jersey

One Pittsburgh Steelers fan is burning all of his gear after the NFL team chose not to come out of the locker room during the playing of the National Anthem before Sunday's game.

Dozens of NFL players across the league opted to kneel during the national anthem after President Donald Trump said players should be fired by the NFL for kneeling.

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who remains unsigned, started the kneeling movement in 2016 to protest racial injustice in America.

"Get that son of a b-- off the field right now, out".

While many NFL players have supported and participated in the anthem protests this weekend, there have been a few who have been less than comfortable with the idea of sitting out the national anthem.

Earlier Monday, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said the team agreed in a players-only meeting late Saturday night that the team would stay in the tunnel for the anthem as a show of team unity. The 29-year-old is in his fourth season with the Steelers.

When asked about the one player who refused to cooperate, Alejandro Villanueva, Tomlin's reiterated he was "looking for 100% participation".

As for Villanueva, although he was only a few yards in front of his teammates, he apparently went rogue and made the decision to break ranks on his own, according to ESPN.com.

The offensive lineman has been supportive of protests against the violence against African Americans in the United States, but has been outspoken of his disapproval to do so during the National Anthem. That didn't work out due to, as Roethlisberger said, pregame "chaos" in a small area, and Villanueva was left to stand alone with his teammates about 20 feet behind him. "If a guy wants to go about his normal business and participate for the anthem, he shouldn't have to be forced to choose sides", Tomlin told CBS. "Al thought we were standing there". We were 20-feet behind him.

"So I think my teammates respected this thoroughly", Villanueva said.

"I'm going to keep private things private". Since then he's become the star of nationalist memes and his jersey is the top selling item on the National Football League website.

"It's completely wrong", Villanueva said.

"Unfortunately, I threw [my teammates] under the bus, unintentionally", he said.
