If we change it to turf, would Rendell call us wussies too?

The message is clear-- the Rooneys play old-fashioned football, and if you are coming to their field to play, get ready to get dirty. We like seeing teams like the Bengals, Cowboys, and Chargers come to Heinz and get their pretty little leotards muddied up.

NFL players need to man up, instead of moaning about the mud. In high school, we had this drain pipe that emptied out on the one side of our field (until my high school built a new stadium), and always had this really foul smelling stagnant azz water coming out of it. You can bet, at home games, we made it a point on defense to try and tackle the opposing team's players right into the deepest part of that swamp for "added effect". Usually got the home crowd whooping too when the other team's QB gets up off the ground covered in stinky, black mud.

Some people forget, football is not a gentleman's sport. The NFL tries to make it all Hollywood and metrosexual.
I support this post.
