Yeah, Steeler fans are gonna give him some props at the start - when the action starts he's just another guy trying to put one in the loss column for your team.

I think Porter will actually get alot of enegry from a booing crowd - his game is built on creating adversity for himelf - calling out other players etc

It should be a fun match up.

What I find interesting is that Tomlin looked over the tapes, and AGREED with cutting him.

What that means to me is that Tomlin also saw SOMETHING that told him Porter was expendable. Whether is was Harrison's play... A view that Porter's motor was starting to slow down a bit... or something.

I assume that the media will pressure Porter into making some anti-steeler comments prior to the matchup, thus leading to more boo's and than cheers from the Steeler fans.

I'm going to the game and there is no way that I can cheer for Peezy being in a different uniform. I'll boo him just like any other dolphin. When he retires and signs the 1 day contract to retire a Steeler, then I'll cheer him once again!!!

i can understand some of you who wont cheer or boo. but booing him in pregame or introductions is rather tasteless imo. yes i know.. he is a dolphin now, but its not like your cheering for him after a sack on ben. he gave everyone on here a lot of thrills and always defended his teammates, even if he went over the line at times. i liked him because of his intensity and passion while he was a steeler. he hated the browns, ravens and bengals as much as any of us and any other steeler. if i was there, id cheer during the intros.. but unfortunately, i do not have tickets.

anyways, my prediction is he will get a warm welcome. but once game time starts it will be completely different.

Well, I don't really know what will happen. As long as it's nothing major, then I'll be alright. Hopefully something with class, lol.

The more boos Joey gets during introductions the better he will play. He has always played better when he's pissed. I'm kind of hoping he gets thrown out before the game like he did against the browns. He owes us for that one anyway.

I won't be watching the game inside Heinz when the Phins come. But IF, IF I WAS THERE I would greet him cheerfully. And when game starts once, I would BOO him whenever he makes or tries to make a tackle on us. I think he might come back to us at the end of his career. Cuz he's black & gold bleeder.
