That is by far the most insightful thing Mark Madden has ever written. He got it exactly right about Clark. Arrogant, Smug, Pretentious and more. He is just an annoying person and a big hypocrite. Hard to believe a local radio station is doing a weekly show with this guy during the regular season.

No matter to me. Madden is an A-hole himself IMO. It's time to play football. I ask nothing from Ryan Clark or James Harrison except to smash QB's and kill WR's! Go Steelers!

First off, Mark is a dbag. I don't know what exactly happened with Ryan Clark, but it's not like he's some outspoken jerk. Harrison's comments about Goodell are fine with me, the comments that involved the team were stupid but things like that do get took out of context. In the end he asks "How are you able to like these guys"? When the real question should be "How are you getting something published"?

Madden is a ****ing asshole. i can honestly say Clark is one of the most fan friendly players on the team from my experiences at training camp, and from talking to staff who are around the players daily. so he's pissed off about the CBA and shares a hatred for Goodell with the whole team? big deal. some of these writers act like pompous assholes themselves, none bigger than the asshole who wrote the article.

To say that James Harrison's comments about his teammates are taken out of context is crazy. There is no context to "Mendenhall is a fumble machine". The only way that statement is taken out of context is if he said first "Mendenhall and I play video games a lot like Madden and he is a fumble machine when we are playing."

And about Ben. How in the world is "Stop trying to be Peyton Manning, because your not pal." out of context? What is the context then? The were at a Halloween party and Ben showed up trying to look like Manning? Come on. Don't play us for idiots.

That out of context reference is the lamest excuse I've ever heard.

And I'm sorry to disagree with so many on this post, but I do agree with Madden this one and only time. He has pegged Ryan Clark exactly. If you hear Clark talk enough times you know what I'm talking about. And Madden is stating the obvious "Just shut up and play football/". Bottom line like a previous poster stated "I ask nothing from Ryan Clark or James Harrison except to smash QB's and kill WR's! Go Steelers! "

You're right. I don't know what Clark said either but if we're to take this douchebag's word for it we are in trouble. I listen to his babble and I can't help but think he doesn't even like the Steelers!!

An astutely ironic quote from Madden's own article:

"Nothing attracts attention like the sound of a jackass braying. When it comes to sexy quotes, idiots are go-to guys. Nobody wants to read (or hear) vanilla."
