While I agree with everything that Troy says, as a player why does he even say anything. He has to know that he's just gonna get fined...

Troy is an intelligent person, and knows what he's getting himself into.

He felt it was important to speak up, and for that i commend him. Good job Troy!

Good for him for speaking his mind about something that any NFL fan couldn't help but be bothered by.

I've been saying the exact same thing as Troy for years, only I'm not a player and there's more swearing.

As someone else has already pointed out, when a player like Troy who doesn't say much to begin with pipes up about it, it speaks volumes. Goodell's a joke and needs to be replaced - he's slowly wrecking the league.

Steelers should start a "Goodell Fine" pot (all on the DL of course), so when somebody does something retarded like Smith decking Hines in practice, he gets 5k thrown into the general fine fund. That way when the Steelers individual players invariably get fined for playing the game the way it's meant to be played, the money doesn't come out of their own pocket (Okay, maybe in Smith's case he'd be paying his own way anyway, but I'm sure you guys get my gist).

The NFL is a pansy game with QB's on skirts, unless that QB happens to named Ben Roethlisberger. Troy doesn't say much, but you know it's a problem when he speaks. He's absolutely 100% correct.

The State of the league is a joke with it's asinine rules. and if I wasn't such a big Steelers fan, I'd be turned off completely. This league babies Quarterbacks and players. People are gonna get hurt. It's football. If you can't take it, you shouldn't play or watch. The NHL is so much tougher right now it's not even funny. They don't punish roughness, they punish diving and embellishment. The players are allowed to fight.

Whatever. People really underestimate the imcompetency of Roger Goodell. He's been nothing short of terrible as NFL commissioner. Any way, get ready to open up your wallet, Troy. Big Brother will fine you.

A lot of people have said something to this effect, but can he really get fined over this? I thought it was OK to complain about the rules, just not the officials.

All this is for me is Fuel to the Fire.

I say...Want to Fine Us, GO AHEAD. We are still going to hit you hard. We are still going to knock in your teeth. We are the Pittsburgh Steelers and we are coming for you, hard, every play..fines be Damned.

I'll take every one of our players getting fined 10,000 a game while laying a beat down on the other team on our way to the title over a losing season every single time.
