Default Two thumbs up!

I actually read a quote/user comment on "The Sporting News" (from a fan) that I thought made sense...

"...I love it when a team loses starters and all the fans say "oh, they weren't very good anyway, or they're easily replaceable". Well guess what? Those guys were starting for a reason...so they must have been pretty darn good to be starting in the NFL for a Super Bowl winning team. But now that they're gone all of a sudden they're not that big of a loss....Sometimes fans make no sense at all..."

It just so happens this guy is a Steeler fan, though, so I'm not surprised...lol

"...My team lost Joey Porter this year. Now that he's gone am I going to say "oh he wasn't that good anyway, or that he's easily replaceable"? No, because I think he still could have put up good numbers in that defense. And now that position is a big question mark....just as the cornerback position is for the Colts. But I'm not going to bash Porter now that he's gone or call him a system linebacker..."


(The reader I'm quoting is tdeck11, so kudos to him.)

The centre spacing on your post makes it a chore to read (one thumb down)

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

I see your point and I'm not going to say good riddance to Joey just because he's gone. I wish we could have found a way to keep him here and retire a Steeler, but theres no way he's worth that kind of $. End of story.

LOL.

I dunno, they weren't like that before I opened this thread

OK, ...I'll post even less (as if that's possible) if that makes you happy...

But still,

Nah man. No one said you should post less. Just get rid of that center spacing!

I for one loved Joey Porter, but this is the business called the NFL. Time has a way of changing things doesnt it? He was kind of starting to slow down a bit, but the man was a beast here in Pittsburgh for us for many years. I will and the Steelers will definitely miss his leadership and energy in the locker room and on the field. I wish him luck except whe he plays the Steelers...
