I actually thought Hines punching his injuried hip after scoring would be just as good as Rod Woodson rolling up his pant leg and pointing to his knee on the first play of the Super Bowl. Nothing would show Hines toughness more.

You want an example:

Hines makes a great catch for an 18 yard gain against the Bengals on a crucial third down for a drive to solidify your lead. After the play, he gets flagged for an obvious unsportsmanslike conduct penalty. You make the catch, you shut your mouth. You are jeopardizing your team's ability to put another team away but giving up 15 yards for running your mouth, grabbing a player's facemask while on the ground or spiking the ball on the field of play (which also is capable of being flagged for delay of game if the ball is not returned to a referee). He turned an 18 yard play into a measly 3 yard gain by taunting.

Hines doesn't need the taunting to prove that he is an elite WR. Playing the game the way it's supposed to be is moving the ball for positive yardage. An 18 yard gain is right as rain better than a 3 yard gain.

I'm sorry you don't see it that way, son.
I guess I should address this to.... dad,

Your post that I originally replied to said for the last 2-3 years and about being idiotic, then you sited last weeks game as your examples? He is a VERY emotional player and he went a little over board last Sunday. My beef with your post was you stating for the last couple years he's been acting like an idiot, that is just not true.

Maybe my 2 - 3 years was an underestimate. You wanted more?

He got flagged for two late hits on defensive players in the same game against Cleveland (11-11-01). The late hits were an emotional response to a heated game that he couldn't keep his head in. The flag happened in the second quarter with the Steelers trying to drive for a score before halftime.

He got flagged for taunting Rod Woodson after a catch that negated a first down on a drive in the fourth quarter against division rival Baltimore Ravens (12-16-01). Ward and Woodson had been exchanging hits all game and Ward lost his cool during an important drive.

He got flagged for spiking the ball ON a Seattle defender after a TD reception against Seattle (11-2-03). The penalty gave Seattle good field position in another close game that was decided only by a touchdown.

Please.

The guy is a great receiver and he's goofed up plenty also.

Moving on.

Too bad Rod couldn't stop Neil O'Donnell from throwing those INT's.

Too bad Jack went for the receiver and not the ball. Greatest play ever!

That's a bit of a stretch. I'd credit the Music City Miracle as a better play. At least that was more of a display of skill than luck. But you're steel-heads so that won't sink in.

So where's the combative response? Oh, I guess I was right after all. Oh well!

I dont think it was childish at all. I think its hilarious to see the prima donnas of the league to get mocked.

Hines is a class act. To insinuate otherwise is crap.

i think the ppl that are complaining about players celebrating need to lighten up, it's a game they are having fun, let them enjoy themselves and entertain us, and keep us wondering what are they gonna do next.
