Default Re: Terribly disappointed in Dan Rooney and the Steeler organization today.

I understand what he was trying to say, even if it came across different than what he meant...........sort of........... I guess.

I also take into consideration that I'm reading what he said verses hearing the whole conversation myself. Not that I would accuse a media source of editing and twisting someones words......................

We all know that Ben came right out and said that his receivers were crap because they weren't tall enough and Anthony Smith walked up to a reporter and outright guaranteed a victory over the Pats..........you know, just out of the blue.

And I still think Harrison will be cut if he has another incident.
(And did Mr. Rooney really call him Jimmy??????? )

I guarantee that Rooney sat done with James Harrison and let him know in no uncertain terms that if he does anything like it again, he's gone.

There is a difference between an open handed slap and 2 closed fisted punches to the face.

I don't condone either one, but there is definitely a difference.

I'm ok with Wilson being cut. I liked him as a player. He was decent at his position. We're not going to miss him much though.

EDIT:: The Steelers have a history of looking at each individual case and all the circumstances around it. They can be very forgiving for things.

Such as who went to the Pro Bowl and who was an overpriced #4 WR

Thank you.

Even if Harrison had been cut, I am absolutely sure that within a year (or less), they would have someone to replace him, and we would have a hard time remembering the name James Harrison.

The Rooneys are forgiving...........but they won't forget. But there's something abut James Harrison that makes me think that this will be the one and only incident. I would be very surprised to see his name in the headlines for anything other than smashmouth football. (pun intended)

This is the NFL, not the glee club. If fans think the Steelers are exempt from poor conduct from players then they have blinders on. Like I stated in a post a few weeks ago, a lot of pro athletes would be in prison or the street if it werent for sports. You know the saying you can take the person out of the ghetto but not the ghetto out of the person. It is true. Harrison made a mistake. He didn't kill anyone or even injure anyone. He committed a misdemeanor. We will see if the woman leaves him.I will bet she stays. What does that say. I am in no way condoning what these guys do whether it be dui's, killing dogs, slapping woman, or drugs, but to think the Steelers are exempt is naive and ignorant. Receivers like Wilson are a dime a dozen. I am so tired of the arm chair owners on this site. Wilson has not done anything to warrant him keeping a job.

Double standards exist every where. Looks at the NHL with the recent Chris Pronger 8 game suspension for stomping. Chris Simon did the same and got 30 games because he is a goon.

Wilson was going to be cut anyways.

The severity of each case is the difference. It's like the difference between being caught speeding and leading the police on a high speed chase.

Harrison knows he's gonna lose his meal ticket in Pittsburgh with another "ticket". Wilson did not pass "Go". He went straight to jail.


I don't need or want this off-season drama.
