Default Hines Ward: Steelers still angry about Titans' stomping on Terrible Towel

Hines Ward: Steelers still angry about Titans' stomping on Terrible Towel
04:40 PM
http://content.usatoday.com/communit...rrible-towel/1

With the Pittsburgh Steelers visiting the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, the memory of the Titans' 2008 disrespecting of the Terrible Towels has come back into view.

Several Titans players stomped on the towels -- a favorite emblem of Steelers fans -- as Tennessee defeated Pittsburgh in a regular-season game in late 2008.

And Steelers WR Hines Ward said Wednesday that incident has not been forgotten.

"When you disrespect the towel, you are disrespecting the people here in Pittsburgh and all of Steeler Nation,"
Ward said. "(Steelers fans) still remember it and they will always remember that."

The Steelers went on to win Super Bowl XLIII after the snub by the Titans, who were en route to the AFC's top seed at the time of the incident. Former Titans LB Keith Bulluck got a Terrible Towel in the mail after the Steelers' Super Bowl win.

Will Ward and his teammates be mindful of the disrespect when they meet on Sunday?

"It doesn't matter," Ward said. "It is a disrespect to us, but we don't play for somebody stepping on a towel or not."

+1. Tennessee is a rivalry out of our division, and we SHOULD remember it since this is our first trip to Tennessee since that incident.
