5,000 bucks is nothing to Ward... $5k well spent.
Indeed.

My block had no impact on the outcome of last week's game. I have never engaged in conduct that has resulted in a penalty to obtain a competitive advantage while the game was in progress.

Part of my job as a Steelers player is to ensure that our football operations are conducted in compliance of the league rules and all accepted interpretations of them. My interpretation of a rule was incorrect.

With today's resolution, I will not be offering any further comments on this matter. We are moving on with our preparations for Sunday's game.

Absolutely. the way Holmes is blocking... it is just scary. It seems as though he is enjoying hitting people as much if not MORE then Ward!

Holly needs to shut his mouth....This is football...if he is really pissed off he should wait unitl their next meeting and settle it like a man...not a punk.

It was on camera. But like Ward said, it came just a little late.

i watched the play again. he hit the guy BEFORE the whistle blew. how is that a penalty?
i thought you were supposed to play until you heard the whistle.

and why didn't they call it a penalty until they came back from commercial and the nancy boy was being helped off the field?

maybe they were just trying to calm things down before there was a fight. that blow to the head of winslow was worse. why can you hit anybody but a qb in the head? i guess a db is not human being.

this guy has totally labeled him self as the bitch-tits of the cleveland browns. if your a brown you really dont want to draw attention to yourself.

dude needs to lay off the estrogen pills and start poppin testosterone if he wants those balls to grow back.
