Steelers left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, an ex military veteran, is now issuing an apology and blaming himself for standing for the National Anthem during last weekend's game. His team decided not to come out of the locker room during the National Anthem and Villanueva, a former Army Ranger doing several tours in Afghanistan stood outside of the tunnel and was the only one on his team that showed up for the national anthem.
Today he issues an apology for making the Steelers look bad.
"When everybody sees the image of me by myself, everybody thinks the team, the Steelers, are not behind me, and that's absolutely wrong. I made Coach [Mike] Tomlin look bad, and that is my fault and my fault only. I made my teammates look bad, and that is my fault and my fault only." - Alejandro Villanueva
