I'm neutral on him leaving, based on his performance.

Yeah.... I agree.

the only thing for me... is that we have seen this before, what, twice now? So it was a known commodity.

That is why I am a little happy, not for Porter being hurt... but for the fact that the Rooneys, who were called every name in teh book, were proved right... AGAIN.

Even though Joey is not longer a Steeler on the pay role. He will ALWAYS be a Steeler at heart. For that I hope he comes back and has another good year. Joey was always there when his team needed him and gave everything for the fans. I think even though he is in a Phins jersey now we can atleast all wish him luck and put in a good word witht he Big Guy when he may need some of us.

Looks like the Steelers FO is not as "dumb and cheap" as some felt they were when they let Porter walk. Maybe the Steeler doctor's and FO knew something we didn't know when it came to Porter.

PORTER GETS 'SCOPED

Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter has undergone arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in Alabama. The surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews, and not by the team's physicians.

Porter went to Alabama for a second opinion on Monday, presumably because he didn't like what the team physicians had to say. The fact that Porter opted to have the surgery performed by Dr. Andrews suggests that Porter felt more comfortable with him than with the team doctors.

It is the second surgery that Porter has had on his right knee in less than 15 months. Since there is only a finite amount fof cartilage in the joint, and presuming that this most recent procedure removed more of it, the term "bone on bone" could eventually become a reality for Porter.

Porter is expected to be out of action for two weeks, and probably will not participate in any preseason games.

Listen, I loved him when he was a Steeler, He is now gone and part of the enemy. He already got 20 million so he aint hurting for money. I dont wish him ill fate, but I cant say I didn't chuckle a little inside when I heard this, common people be honest, you did as well! Get better Porter!
