Poor old Hines Ward - cheap shotting 'warrior' on the field - loud mouth bitch off it.

Glad to see there is still more gas in the tank regarding the Patriots - obesssive might be too strong a word....might....

I don;t know, voluntarily turning Steelers threads into smack fests on the Patriots with no credible linkage......

We're the Steelers...the league hates us...

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 was at the game and the browns fan beside me (which whom I got along with very well) was complaining about Ward saying he is dirty and a cheapshot player all I had to say was "ya just remember he is a wideout and he just blew up your corner".

I am just saying if issuing maudlin "apologies" is how the "model franchise" handles this then Hines should follow the guidance provided by that organization:

Hines Ward said he will appeal the $5,000 fine the NFL slapped him with for a block he made Sept. 9 on Browns cornerback Daven Holly. The Steelers wide receiver was called for a personal foul for hitting Holly after the whistle at the end of a Najeh Davenport catch-and-run. Ward learned late last week that the league had further punished him for the block that knocked Holly out of the game with a concussion. Holly, a Clairton High School product, told the Cleveland Plain-Dealer that the play was a "heinous act."

"If that's what you want to call it, heinous, I'll apologize," Ward said after the Steelers' beat the Buffalo Bills, 26-3, on Sunday, "but if I really wanted to hurt him, I could have."

Ward said he had already started to block Holly when the whistle blew and couldn't stop in time.

that's our Ward.

Though I don't know if appealing it will work, Keisel appealed the fine he got for the hit on Campbell and we haven't heard anything abut that....
