Default Re: Steelers don't take high road with Harrison

While I agree that no one player is bigger than the team and I agree that Harrison should be handled like Wilson, could you imagine if say someone like Ben or Troy was to do something this stupid?

Would we all be saying then what we're saying now and that would be that the Steelers should cut Ben or Troy?

I was just going to ask this question. What IF Ben did something like this? Would we all be okay with having him released?

Default Re: Steelers don't take high road with Harrison

this is a dead topic as far as I'm concerned

you either

A. Are ok with the Rooney's releasing Wilson and not Harrison.

or

B. Feel they both should have been let go in the interest of fairness.

Either way, no one will be able to change anyone's mind on this issue, the opinions are all set in stone.

I agree, there is no way your going to change anyone's mind. This is a very weird situation. I'm not familiar with what happens if we cut a player. Instead of cutting him, could we try to trade him for some picks or are we just screwed?

If it was their second offense, yes, I would be saying cut them. If it's the first time (and yes, this is the first offense I've heard of with Harrison), then I believe that every person deserves a second chance. However, if they acted out again - nice knowing you, thanks for the Super Bowl - C YA!

Wilson was cut. Harrison wasn't.

Both hit women. Both should've been punished, but both were not. Deal with it.

It's an unfair double standard, yes. But then again, women beating the crap out of men is deemed acceptable in our society regardless of the circumstance in all forms of media.

I just don't see much of a difference between the two cases until the very end:

Harrison wanted his kid to be baptized. Wilson didn't want the mother of his children hanging out in a bar and felt she should be at home with the kid.

In both situations, the girlfriends face was struck with a hand of a Steelers player.

Both men have apologized.

Both men have serious anger issues and don't understand that there are other outlets for anger other than a woman's body when that situation arises.

It makes you wonder what other things these women have covered up for these two in the past.

and alas......

One was cut, the other remains....

...and we haven't even gotten to the bottom of the Davenport issue from last season where eyewittnesses saw him act violently toward a woman.

I can't answer for everyone else, WARD, but I for one would answer YES - without a doubt (thought I believe both Ben and Troy would never do something that classless or cowardly).

This is what I'm not getting around here - this is NOT Wilson's 2nd offense! The first time Wilson's name was associated with the 5-0 was at the end of January when his fruitloop of a g/f barricaded herself inside of HIS home with a gun and forced a 12 hour standoff and the evacuation of over 70 neighbors. She was charged with criminal offenses - not him.
