By now most Steelers fans are well aware of Cam Heyward’s stand against the NFL.
In a game against the Chargers, Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward honored his late father Craig “Iron Head” Heyward, who died of cancer in 2006 by wearing eye black with “IRON HEAD” written across the strips and was fined by the NFL.
Cam decided to pay the fine and do the same Sunday against the Cardinals. Cam said that he’d continue to do so regardless of the fines saying “I don’t want to get involved in it, but it’s bigger than me. I’m not going to shy away from the fight against cancer, and I’m going to support them in any way possible.”
I think that Steeler Nation should stand up and send a message to the NFL by supporting Cam Heyward.
The Steelers hit the road this week, but the following game would be at home, it’ll be a high profile game against the undefeated Bengals, and it will be November 1st… a day after breast cancer awareness month. Let’s show the NFL that Steeler Nation supports cancer awareness more than one month out of the year, unlike the league that tells DeAngelo Williams that he’s now allowed to.
Wear your eye black November 1st at Heinz Field with Cam’s “IRON HEAD” across them!
