Default Well.... so much for loyalty.

K. What the hell happened to the loyalty in the league? You would think that if you love your team, the city, and the players that you would stay. Look at Joey Porter. Was there any other steeler on his team that bled black and gold as much as he did? No. but, the steelers didnt want to pay to high, so whats the steelerlover do? Packs up and heads to Miami. The same goes for around the leauge. Your making a lot of dough and you want more? its just a big competition between players these days. "Ah steve hutchinson got this much, I have to get more!" Well you know what faneca its 10x more classy to take a pay cut or not ask for so much more. Jerome did it. He got a ring by doing it. I don't know. Jack lambert had one teaem only. Help me out someone.

You know the saying--money talks, BS walks.

Porter wanted to be paid a whole lot more than what he's worth. imo

I just feel bad for the rooneys. Theres lots of speculation that there not loyal enough to their players. Well you know what. It goes both ways.

i think that was a main problem especially when cowher was here....thats why everything is all shook up now and nobody is granted there starting job. I think it is a good thing and will make players play basically to keep their job

If I ever played in the NFL, I'd try to stick with one team if it was up to me. I'd just be glad to be making that much money at that point. I don't need to make 6 million extra dollars or some BS when I can live off way less then the minimum in the league.

Joey was my favorite player as a Steeler and I really hoped that he would resign for less money so we could bring in some young rooks but I guess thats buisness.
