OK armchair politicians, put it to rest.
Some of your comments are worse than the subject of this thread.
Your comments prove without a doubt that discussing religion and politics and trying to change someone's mind/opinion is the biggest waste of time and energy.
Football PLEASE,......this is not Face the Nation.

I really don't feel that what Mendenhall said was offensive. I do think though, as stupid as it sounds, that it is WHO said it that is offensive.

Mendenhall has a right to his opinion, and I agree with him that we shouldn't celebrate anybody's death, but when a celebrity tweets something like what he did, it's a lightning rod for controversy.

Let's not forget that whether one see's Bin Laden as a soldier or terrorist, his tactic was to kill innocent people and as spectacularly as possible. With his money he could have just as easily led a peaceful mission to stop violence in the Arab world.

I would rather have seen him go to trial, but I'm glad he's no longer planning the death's fellow human's

This is all true, and the bold is actually all well documented.

I could give at least 10 more examples but that's not the point. The point is if you hear all the evidence of a "conspiracy" and still don't believe it that's fine, but don't claim that all these weird anomaly's and all this shady behavior did not exist, because most of it is documented and pretty well known.

Nothing weird about that, world recognized figures drop by my house all the time and I specifically do not pictures and go out of my way to make sure nobody see's them leave. Don't you?

Please see the links I posted above (like this one about building 7, for example). As far as pictures of Bin Laden go, where do you get that the White House said they don't exist? Of course they said they exist. Congressmen that doubted Obama were shown pictures.

I see absolutely nothing wrong with Mendy's comments last year. While 9/11 is a touchy subject (and rightfully so), his comments were misunderstood by many. He actually gained my respect by speaking his mind. So I've no problem with him as a person, I just wish he'd learn to run forward and pick up what the D gives him.

Moved to the Locker Room. This thread is tangentially about the Steelers at best.

For the record, I think Mendenhall is a fellow of exceptional feeling, which is what it takes even just to pause for a moment before saying "Ya voll mein fuehrer" and then believing everything you are told.

Does that mean the CIA brought down the towers? No.

we aint talking about cropdusters bouncing off of steel barns, kid.

you mean to tell me you think 4 jetjiners just disappeared into thin air like a fart into the wind?

i'll admit i have never really looked into any of the 9-11 conspiracy theorists reasonings or given them any credence, because i know they are absolute rubbish and i have much better things to do with my time such as jacking off to imaginations of rosie o'donnell and whoopie goldberg in bed with pee-wee herman.

but please humor me so i can laugh some more. what ever happened to all the explosives that were hidden in the white house or capitol that failed to go off?

anyways, i really dont have anything against mendenhalls tweet. i would say i was over it the day after, but i was never under it. i dont think he has tweeted since, so appearantly he got the message (or better yet, used better judgement to be less inflamatory).

You hire someone because they can get the job done. To hate Mendenhall is valid, it is an opinion, but to ask that he loses his livelihood is reprehensible. Mendenhall is a solid NFL starting running back who stays out of trouble. I personally hope he is a Steeler for a long time.
A lot of people don't understand the concept of freedom of speech. Mendy is free to say whatever he wants to say. He's not going to be arrested and jailed for his comments. But just as he's free to say what he wants to say, other people are free to agree or disagree with him. And companies are free to decide whether they want someone with his views representing them. If a company believes that Mendy will make them money, they'll keep him. If they believe his comments will hurt them, they'll get rid of him. There's nothing at all fascist about that.
