I do not see it as Joey being the poor athlete who wasn't given a fair shot and the Rooney's being the harsh owners who simply threw him out of the city. He wanted more money. He got in Miami. Now he's playing on a pathetically sad football team. He is the enemy. Plain and simple.

BTW, I don't care if Jack Lambert or Jack Ham come out of retirement, join the Dolphins and sack our QB this upcoming Monday, the day I cheer for a player on the opposing team who sacks our QB is the day I get my head examined, sell my season tickets and become a Patriots fan.

If he sacks Ben, so what. He used to be part of us just like all the other great players from the Steelers past. I know I'd be smiling IF Lambert was sacking Ben and be thinking "Lambert, you S.O.B."

& I C that you're not gonna cheer IF Porter sacks Ben, & I understand that. But please, DON'T BOO him, for Christ's sake. It hasn't been that long since Peezy left, and the memories about him hasn't all faded away. I still like that guy, and like some of the SF members were saying I'd love to see him come back and retire as B&G.

Like I said he was one of us, and he's just doing what he has to do. PLEASE PLEASE don't boo him.

So what??? I'm going to play the what if game here. What if Porter's sack causes an injury to Ben and we lose him for a game or two down the all important stretch or worse - if we lose him for the remainder of the season?

Some people around here feel it is fine to boo one of their own. Peezy isn't wearing the black and gold anymore and left of his own accord. On Monday night - he is the enemy like it or not and if people choose to boo him, more power to 'em. I appreciate his contributions to the team while he was here, but reality bites - he's not a member of this team anymore.

So what?

What if Ben get's injured on that one sack? So what right? No biggy.

What if that sack occurs at a vital point in the game and changes the face of the game? So what right? Hey, it would only cost us back to back losses to the two worst teams in the NFL. No biggy.

I will boo Porter just like I would any other LB who sacks Ben. I will boo the opposition just like I do for the other 7 regular season home games.

I can't count how many times I've stated this, but I will again for the record. I appreciate what Porter brought to this team when he WAS a Steeler. That doesn't mean I have to cheer for the guy or not boo him now that he is on an opposing team. If you don't want to boo the opposition, more power to you. I'm not telling you to.

It just seems like to me that there is a double standard. I remember when we played Arizona and before the game there was a topic wishing them luck and such... A Wiz and Russ lovefest... (Looked for it and couldn't find it btw) To me, if we can cheer for them we can cheer for Porter too.

Well - if you want to cheer for a member of our opponent on Monday night, have at it. If you were sitting next to me at HF - you'd get a beer shampoo.

Yeah, I won't necessarily be cheering for him Monday night, just supporting him. Any other game except facing the Steelers, I will cheer for Joey. Just as I do Plax, Randle El, Chris Hope, Kendrell Bell, etc... There is no need to be hostile towards these guys such as booing indicates. You don't have to like them succeeding against you're team but show some respect for the contributions they made to help the Steelers no matter how they went out.
