Default Source: NFL upset with Steelers music

Quote:
A league source who was watching the AFC title game contacted us by e-mail on Sunday night while Ravens' trainers were tending to running back Willis McGahee, who at the time possibly had sustained a serious head and/or neck injury. The source was livid regarding the fact that, while McGahee was laying on the turf, the folks who operate the sound system at Heinz Field opted to play rock music over the P.A. system. Specifically, the selections were "Down On The Corner" by Creedence Clearwater Revival, and then "Smooth" by Santana featuring Rob Thomas. Said the source: "There is a player on the field who may have suffered a life changing injury and the Steelers are playing party music. There are about five teams in the league that would engage in such horrific behavior. All others would cease all entertainment."

F'k the league and its "officials". All week we heard about bounties, makin retribution and payback for crackback blocks from Ward........Bart Scott running off at the mouth about how he loved the sound of air leaving Bens body after his hit on Ben. They crowed all f'kin week about hurting us and look who got laid out............serves them right. My condolensces to McGahee but f'k that organization of thugbirds.

We had the last word in this one.....so they can suck one til next season when we inflict the same. Be ready.......stay ready, cuz we're about to hunt crow again.

A league source----------pfffffft heh.

Eff these assholes. That's total garbage.

Besides, if I went to a party and they played those two songs, I'd leave...that ain't party music.

The music is there to keep the fans entertained. The sound crew didn't know how long the player was going to be down for. Heck, that's probably the most low-key music they have there!!!

I thought it was a bit strange myself, but making an issue of it is ridiculous. I mean, unless they were playing something like Celebration by Kool & The Gang as McGahee is laid out, I don't really see an issue.

Oh BITE ME. Steelers fans were very sympathetic to McGahee's injury and were heard yelling well wishes to him as he was being carted off the field. Can't they come up with something better than this to bash the Steelers with?

The NFL source should just shut up. They were not playing anything that was harassing McGahee. Basically they're telling me that they shouldn't play music at all during breaks. I didn't hear one ounce of music that was offensive while at the game last night. Besides do you really think that anyone that was around McGahee was even listening to the music while he was down???
