It was a dumb thing to say undoubtedly, but not worthy of getting the boot from the team for.
If you threw out every football player who said uncoutht hings we'd be left with a paltry team indeed.

i doubt he has any love for bin laden, but i can see where he's coming from. all this celebrating someone's death in a way does make me sick.

with that said, i'm glad bin laden won't be able to hurt anyone anymore, but i think he would have been more valuable alive.

i'd much prefer that bin laden's death didn't get so much press, seeing his picture makes me sick

Oh yeah....he just believes in something. Like Bin Laden?!?!?!?! Are you kidding me!!!!

And I'm sure he loves that sweet heart Hitler. No man that believes what he said deserves to be a Steeler. He either needs to TOTALLY retract an oral diarehha outbreak.....or get kicked off this team. This is Pittsburgh!!!! We tolerate NO AL QUEDA sympathizers!!!! None of our lost family members, service members or any American should tolerate any man that sheds a tear for this animal.

I am steamed!!!!!

I agree. While I think it's stupid for him to make extreme (and by extreme I mean unconventional) political statements on such a platform, it's not like he's unamerican just because he feels that way. But, I fear a potential backlash for the guy.

Honestly, part of me agrees with him. You guys can call me "unamerican" if you want, but it's just how I feel. I'm against war; I'm against the death penalty; and I've never met this Osama Bin Laden. I did not see him organize an operation to blow up any of our buildings, I only have information provided by our government telling me he did such things. Either way, even if he is guilty, this whole idea that death justifies death seems barbaric to me - I thought we were civilized. If that makes me unamerican, well I guess I'm guilty as charged.

what, just because this guy doesn't like the press parading and celebrating the death of somebody then you're an al queda sympathizer? get the **** outta here man, the world isn't black and white.

some people can be glad he's gone but the celebrating death thing doesn't sit right with some.

this is the USA, people have the right to speak their mind. saying otherwise would be un-american
