Default Re: Cheaters AND Cheap Shot Artists

I agree. It's frustrating that they are presented as the clean-cut team and they are convicted cheaters and cheap shot artists.

In 2006, SI did a survey of NFL players asking who was the dirtiest player in the NFL. Rodney Harrison was named by 23% of the players surveyed as the dirtiest player in the NFL. He was also voted dirtiest in 2004. Now, here we are in 2007 and the same guy just came back from a suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs. But somehow, he's part of that "model organization."

Here's a link to the 2006 article. http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2631666 In fairness, Joey Porter and Hines Ward were also listed as dirty players but with only 8% and 6% of the vote respectively. The list also names consistently hard hitters so you have to take some of this with a grain of salt.
