This would be much more interesting if it involved Hines Ward and/or Bart Scott, but it's an attention-grabber nonetheless.

Steelers punter Mitch Berger, who holds for Jeff Reed's placekicks, claims that Ravens special teamer Frank Walker spit in his mouth yesterday. From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

"The guy dove, he tried to take out Jeff's knee," said Berger. "I went over there and he got up and he spit in my face -- and they called it on Jeff for pushing him!"

[...]

"I tried to get in the middle to separate him but he got in my face and spit right in my mouth. He spit right in my mouth. I'm still trying to spit that ... out. I was talking to him, trying to separate everybody and he spit right in my mouth."

Ick. Frank Walker, that is unsportsmanlike and unhygienic. Not to mention unmanly. I know it's a heated rivalry, and I know you were probably upset that you lost, but come on. That does not give you the right to force someone else to accept your bodily fluids into an orifice of theirs. Who are you, Jerramy Stevens?

And besides that, if you're going to spit on someone, do it to someone who can fight back. You're going to spit in the mouth of a punter? A 36-year-old punter, at that? Where is your pride, sir? What's Mitch Berger going to do to retaliate, kick Frank Walker's possessions in a direction that's inconvenient to him?

Sadly, two-thirds of the people involved in this little dust-up (or saliva-up, as it were) kick for a living, so I don't think this is likely to be an ongoing feud. If it involved Ward, Scott, or other people who see physical combat regularly, we might have something to keep an eye on in the future. Berger's only course of action, really, is to tell on the guy.

Stupid Ratbirds. :mad: If I was Berger, I'd walk over to house start hitting that SOB mercilessly. I don't care how big or tough that SOB is. I'd use bat, knife, or even a gun, I don't care. Cuz it wasn't Berger's fault to start with. Like it says on the article Walker can't do no sh*t against the other players, & picked on a punter. What a jackass.

WOW. Chill out bro. :chillpill T.O. is a Cryboy and most die-hard Steelers fans don't like the Cryboys or any of their players. Personally, I don't like the guy because of his over-inflated ego and his big mouth. If he signed with the Steelers (which will never happen), I wouldn't be happy about it and I sure as hell wouldn't waste that kind of money buying his jersey.

Highly doubtful on two accounts here:

1) Rooney's would never sign such an egotistical team destroying maniac
2) I doubt, even if he were signed, that his jersey would fly off the shelf (except for maybe the band wagon fans) - you see there is a presedent set for Steelers WRs and TO can't hold a candle to it!

Nasty is not the word, Berger shoudl've killed him in the parking lot. Regardless of how badly he punts, he would forever be a Steelers legend in my eyes.

Well if he kicked him, he'd never hurt him.

my whole point was,that this thread had to do with a guy spitting in another guys mouth,and the person posts a thing about "to so-called nuking two teams"...this thread had nothing to do with him,its like that person just rips on to at any given time the person can,i mean stay on topic......and by the way to lead one of those teams he so called nuked to the super bowl, and the other he so-called nuked,well that was the last time they were a winning team and not a joke.......are you telling me theres no egos on the steelers?...and no cry babies on the steelers?i mean do you not remember randle el,he complained all the time.......and by the way,the COWBOYS(people seem to always misspell that on here) didnt make the playoffs,until to joined the team.....i mean you can be a fan and still be respectful of other players and teams,i guess i just dont like doing grade school things like that....and by the way,what presedent are you talking about,the wrs for the steelers are at a higher level,he coulnt hold a candle to them,in what way-cause he hasnt been busted for beating up his girlfriend or smoking pot,i mean im a steeler fan,i just dont have blinders on,and think that my team and players on it are perfect.....Highly doubtful on two accounts here:

1) Rooney's would never sign such an egotistical team destroying maniac
2) I doubt, even if he were signed, that his jersey would fly off the shelf (except for maybe the band wagon fans) - you see there is a presedent set for Steelers WRs and TO can't hold a candle to it!

i bet Berger is going to die of some illness that travels through douchebags saliva!!!

if that was meet...i would've taken my helmet off and cracked him in the nuts/face with it. f that. that is UNCALLED for and actually it's a form of assault. i think the Ravens should be fined for that...i mean, a tackle is a tackle and it gets unjustly fined. a loogie is a loogie and it gets nothing...bs.

Like I stated last week, the Browns fans are the dumbest, Ravens' fans have the least class. Just like Romanowski did to JJ Stokes years ago, spitting is the weakest, lowest thing you can do. Shows he has no composure and restraint. It will be forgotten in weeks, just like when Haynsworth stomped on that dudes face. He is mentioned as defensive player of the year, all I can think of when I see him is him stepping on a guys face. Total lack of class. Should have suspended him for a year.

If anyone would have done this, I would have guessed Bart Scott. After all, he was the one who mentioned getting Hines Ward in a phone booth.

I wonder what the Big Boy had in mind for Hines.

Fellas, I just watched that play were it supposedly happened. I think Berger is lying. When Reed pushed the guy Berger was laughing. Now if I was spit on I wouldn't be laughing, I would be wiping my face or removing the face of the guy who did it. Berger was doing neither.

Tend to agree with ya Hitman...NFL Replay showed the play...didn't see any obvious spitting going on...

Never said they didn't. Never said he wasn't a good player. Just said they can't stand him and neither can I, and like it or not I don't have to. By the way "to" probably should have be capitalized, and you misspelled "their" and "grammar". Maybe we should leave spelling and grammar out of this.

:joker:...like him, hate him,i dont care,it means nothing to me who you like or who you dont like,you were the one who made it personal, when all i was saying it my original post,was the fact that this thread, had nothing to do with him,so why bring him up then....and then you said,hey people in dallas even hate him,like you did some polling or something......but if that was true and you hate somebody like you say "alot" of people do,then why would you cheer for him...if i dont like a player,i dont cheer for them,even if they do good,...only a bandwagon fan does things like that.......Never said they didn't. Never said he wasn't a good player. Just said they can't stand him and neither can I, and like it or not I don't have to.
