‘Stand & Respect Our Flag’ Banner Flown Over Steelers-Ravens Game
Week 3 of this NFL season was like no other we’ve seen before, as players from every team decided to join in some form of demonstration during the playing of the National Anthem. Most of them were met with a chorus of boos for their actions.
Following the boos, many fans took to social media and showed their anger by burning jerseys, memorabilia, autographed helmets, and even season tickets.
During Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Ravens fans booed their team when they kneeled before the National Anthem.
