Exactly my thoughts when I heard of it.

One reason I have continued to be a fan of Steel since 1971 is the character issue. If I can't be proud of the character of the players, I can't be proud of the Steelers.

I spend a lot of my down time playing games in casinos. The last thing I need is some idiot bringing his personal beef into my recreation. Steeler or not.

From PFT.com....

Per numerous media reports, including the Las Vegas Review-Journal, newly-signed Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter was cited for misdemeanor battery on Sunday night after allegedly punching Bengals left tackle Levi Jones in the face.

The altercation started at a gaming table at the Palms casino.

Per an e-mail from a reader who claims to have witnessed the incident, "They started talking shit, Joey Porter saying he'll always be a Steeler. He showed off the Super Bowl ring and Jones got up to him, and Joey Porter pretty much kicked his ass . . . . Jones never got a shot in."

That's the closest a Cincinatti Bengal will ever come to a Super Bowl ring!

That do you call a Bengal with a Super Bowl ring? A THIEF!

Sounds to me like one player who didn't expect another one to actually start throwing punches.

i just heard on the radio that levi plans to file charges. i know im probably in the minority, but i have no problem with what porter did, unless he walked up behind jones, tapped him on the shoulder, and then sucker punched him. but levi shoulda known better to be talkin smack to porter and then get up in his face.

i think joey comes out ahead on the "character meter" on this one. he aint no punk. as long as he didnt get a penalty or hurt the team, this is no more offensive to me than a brawl in hockey.

Joey Porter gave new meaning to the poker term "Hit me".

Levi asked and Porter obliged.
