Default Cincy Reporters can't let it go...

Absolutely disgusting how far these ****s will go to make a name for themselves. I feel dirty for even bringing this stupid retarded POS's article into the light of day, but it's probably more important to expose blatant ignorance than to let it grow under rocks in the dark...

Von Oelhoffen relishes role with Steelers
CINCINNATI ? Our careers ? covering the Bengals and playing for them ? overlapped three seasons (1997-99). During that time, two things struck me about Kimo von Oelhoffen:

1) He wanted to be a firefighter when his playing days were over.

2) He absolutely loved playing against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He loved playing against ?em so much, you?d have sworn he wanted to be one ? while he was a Bengal.

Each year during Steelers week, von Oelhoffen needed two Kleenex as he spoke, in awe, about the challenge of facing his idol, Steelers center Dermontti Dawson. One tissue to wipe the drool from his chin, the other to dab his starry, cloudy eyes.

So it was no surprise that when von Oelhoffen?s contract was up, he signed as an unrestricted free agent with the Steelers on Feb. 18, 2000. I?d have been shocked had he gone anywhere else.

Well, I learned something more about the 12-year veteran on Sunday. He?s a pretty good actor.

After his cheap shot on Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer, von Oelhoffen raised his hands to his helmet pretending to be sorry. I didn?t buy Kimo?s act then. I don?t buy it today. I won?t buy it tomorrow.

That the NFL didn?t fine von Oelhoffen, coupled with referee Larry Nemmers? refusal to penalize him, is a double slap in the face of the Bengals organization.

E-mailers have flooded my inbox, seeking my opinion on the play. I answer them with one word. D-i-r-t-y. Because every hit on a quarterback below the waist in exactly that.

In exonerating von Oelhoffen, the league claimed he didn?t have an unrestricted path to the quarterback. It said he was coming off a block (by left guard Eric Steinbach), got thrown off the block and his path to Palmer wasn?t clear.

What I saw was von Oelhoffen hit the ground, then lunge into Palmer?s left knee, crushing his ACL and MCL.

My first thought: Where?s referee Bernie Kukar when you need him? Of the league?s 130-plus officials, he?s the No. 1 protector of quarterbacks.

Back on Dec. 4, Kukar threw the flag on Bengals linebacker Odell Thurman for roughing Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and Kukar threw the flag on Steelers linebacker Clark Haggans for roughing Palmer. Nemmers never reached for his yellow hankie.

It?s wasted space to print here that the Bengals would?ve won the game had Palmer played its entirety. But it?s not too far-fetched to think, and claim, that the Steelers? best chance at victory would be if Palmer got knocked out of the game.

Longtime Bengals observers still remember the night of Oct. 10, 1983, when Steelers defensive end Keith Gary yanked quarterback Ken Anderson?s head like a twist-off, soda-pop bottle. So von Oelhoffen?s dirty hit was hardly precedent-setting.

What genuinely surprised me was the Bengals? reaction.

Instead of slamming Rudi Johnson and Chris Perry down the Steelers? throats in a test of manhood, offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski allowed Jon ?Crazy Legs? Kitna to heave 40 passes. Two got picked off.

And tell me this: How could the Bengals ? with their franchise quarterback on crutches, his knee encased in ice and out until August ? let Roethlisberger and von Oelhoffen escape Paul Brown Stadium without a bump or a bruise? I have a feeling they were too busy bickering at halftime.

Therein lies the difference between the two clubs.

One is hard. The other is soft.

I'm sure the authors of these articles read SF on a daily basis.

You're talking to thin air, bud.

That's actually a good point. If someone is mentally challenged enough to print this horseshit and get it published, calling the paper or it's representatives will be a mistake. It will lend credibility to nothing...

Well...inexperience with the playoffs and playoff losses also translates to the media in the respective town. If Cincy is lucky enough to make the playoffs again...maybe their journalists will act like veterans and stop crying over their spilt milk like babies.


Can you imagine Ed Bouchette writing something like that after last years loss to the Pats?

God...grow up Cincy.
