The mere fact that he was the second guy to get in trouble makes him a much bigger problem for the team. It's like, hey, meathead, you knew everyone was paying extra close attention, and you still screwed up.

Also, punching out a woman in front of a room full of people leaves a lot less room for "let's see what the courts decide."

At least that's my take on it. I think Rooney gave a stupid answer. The reason why the argument started doesn't make the action any better or worse, except maybe if the woman was physically attacking you with some sort of weapon.
Steelreserve...please be more careful when posting quotes...The quote you attributed to me is taken from an Madden article I posted...and not a direct quote from me,

WRONG! We dont know all the details, she is covering up now saying he just pushed her face with his hand, with witnesses. We dont know what happened before she locked herself in and had the standoff! Maybe he shoved her then as well. You guys got to remember Wilson is where her Bread comes from! Woman do lie and cover up for many many years.

This means that Wilson was involved in two not one domestic situations.PERIOD!

The Rooneys have made there decision. PERIOD!

I seriously cant wait till Draft day so we can all argue a diffrent dead point! PERIOD!

common sense and smart business.

many employees are held at different standards. it happens everywhere.

overpaid, poor employee gets fired

adequately paid, good employee gets a warning

makes sense to me.

The Steelers were looking for a reason to release Wilson. This was just the reason they needed.

No team is going to release a key player over something like this. This is not excusing what Harrison did, but A) it was his first offense, and B) you dont release a key player unless you have to. I dont want to see James Harrison cut. Ive lost respect for him, but unless all teams are going to start releasing players that get in trouble with the law, I dont really care.

Why should we release Harrison? To set an example? Please. The Rooneys arent trend setters. If we release Harrison, and say a player like DeMarcus Ware did the same thing, do you think the Cowboys would release him? Its not going to happen.

This is a business, and alot of the players in this league are classless and in some cases criminals, but they are still on a team. The Rooneys shouldve just released Wilson and kept quiet. People wouldve talked about the double standard, but what Rooney said just made it so much worse.

As for Madden, the bloated bag of wind would run his mouth even if we did cut Harrison.

You're right - we don't know all of the details but as the charges stand RIGHT NOW - they are levied against Wilson's g/f not HIM. PERIOD!

This means that Wilson is, as of this date and time, not a defendant in the first domestic incident. PERIOD!

I have no problem with the Rooneys' decision to cut Wilson loose. I have a problem with the glaring double standard. PERIOD!

I can't wait until draft day either. PERIOD!

As far as Wilson only having "one" incident, I have a very strong feeling that after the gun standoff, Ced sat across the desk from Dan Rooney, and swore that there would be no more worries about future "incidents". He blew his one chance at redemption.

I'm just as sure "Jimmy" said the same thing and he will be gone if he blows his chance, too.

Santonio and Najeh .......same deal. And we haven't heard a peep out of either of them since. (knock on wood).
I don't see the double standard.
(That does NOT mean I condone what any of them did)
Now, when is draft day again???
