PITTSBURGH – Carolina Panther's quarterback Cam Newton showed his support for the sad city of Pittsburgh and his team's owner by having black and gold warming with "Hatred can not weaken a city of steel" on the side before Thursday's game against Steelers.
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger also showed his support with cleats who said "Stronger Than Hate" and listed the names of the 11 people who were recently shot and killed by a gun at the Synagogue Tree of Life.
Pittsburgh is home town Carolina owner David Tepper, who was a minority owner of Steelers before buying the panthers earlier this year for $ 2,275 billion, a record for an NFL team.
While the photography site was not Teppers primary synagogue, he lived close to it while in college at Carnegie Mellon University.
One of Teppers best friends was married to the synagogue.
Carpets were not surprised Newton and Roethlisberger had drafted to raise awareness of the tragedy.
"It's fun to see it," he said. "As I have said many times, people do not appreciate how big the guys do things in society. It's fun to see. It's not surprising to see. There are so many people getting used to, but it's really a good thing like these guys do. & # 39; & # 39;
