Default Where Is The Class Pittsburgh?

Roethlisberger with all his troubles off the field.
Mendenhall with his twitter nonsense.
Ward with the DUI.

and now Harrison with his "wouldn't piss on the commissioner" comments.

I've been a fan since birth and bleed black and gold, but I'm really getting disappointed with this team. I dislike Godell as much as the next guy, but let's get back to having some class Pittsburgh. Makes me a little less excited to watch on Sundays...

He has a reason to be pissed at Goodell...The other off the field stuff is plain terrible!

This is a fact : As little as approx. 3 years ago, the Steeler were the "class" and upstanding moral citizens of league, no question. We weren't perfect, but certainly stood at # 1 in the entire NFL.
We've now lost that crown. In fact, "hard-hitting" reputations aside that other clubs fans don't like, we are now dwelling near the bottom of the league, maybe even last.
If there's a camp this year, Tomlin needs to come in with an iron fist, and i mean an iron fist.

AGREED! Something needs to be done quickly here. I do think that once these guys get all back together and start totally concentrating on football we will see a slight difference this year, but in the overall picture the team as a whole needs to be told these type of actions will not be tolerated and to straighten up or suffer the consequences. I hate to see great players let go for petty off the field stuff, but they are like a cancer, and if you let them hang around they start infecteing others on the team.

Harrison can't state his 1st amendment right in how he feels? I don't necessarily agree with everything he said but its not like he got arrested or something.

Sure he can say what he wants legally. But bashing team mates in a magazine article isn't the right thing to do and it's not good for the team which is what's most important. Put it in terms of your employment. Is it right to pop off about someone else's performance. As a boss, you can correct an employees mistakes and say whatever you want. I think the best bosses do it in a way to enhance performance, which this doesn't. Furthermore, James is not the boss. That's Tomlin's job. So James, should have just kept his big mouth shut. See I just exercised my first amendment right to tell James Harrison to shut up. Although, I probably wouldn't advise me to do it to his face.

Class has nothing to do with it. If you know James Harrison, you know he is very strict with his money. Goodell took 100K of it for tackling people. That is why he is pissed.

We all know what he said is what almost all people think. I know I do. I blame Big Ben and Mendenhall for their timely mistakes for that loss. The Packers went down the field with ease in each of the 3 turnovers they gave up, one being a TD score. Momentum in that game was killed by those two with missed plays, fumbles, etc. And for the knuckle head idiots who say he only had one tackle in the game, go back and watch the game, he had 2 guys on him the whole game so save me the "Chad Clifton shut him down" bull crap.

The only thing worse then sucking is letting something you have in your grasp go. The Steelers let another Lombardi go 5 months ago. I am pissed and Im just a fan.

Harrison downing his own teammates is a such a selfish act. The guy is baller but a moron. If Ben drives down the field and scores on that last drive, he'd be considered on of the best QBs of all time. Now Harrison is pretending he just rode the defense to two championships. Last I remember our defense in the 90s was pretty similar yet we had nothing to show for that.

It was an unacceptable performance by the defense that night. We were lucky we were in the game at the end. Green Bay dropped quite a few passes. Maybe he should start downing his secondary for not being able to cover anyone.
