Default Rainey Vs Talamu

Why release rainey for hitting his girlfriend when you keep a guy that tried to murder several people including multiple cops. I don't see the logic in these steeler moves. If this were the 90s they would both be gone. And under cowher this sh!
t wouldn't have fly'd.

I don't think Ta'amu was trying to kill people, I think he was so drunk he didn't know what he was doing, but you're right he should have been cut just as quickly as Rainey was.

cause ta'amu has a legit shot at becoming a starter. rainey is just a gimmick player and proved to be expendable.

sounds like a double standard and probably is, but that's the way stuff works.

I've been thinking about this - and its possible that after the recent couple of years of incidents (S.Holmes, Ben, Ta'amu, now Rainey, and others) - the Ta'amu incident afterwards could have pissed the big man Rooney off so bad (and it SHOULD have) that he's having the team take an absolute zero tolerance policy on this kind of stuff now.
It's been constant black eyes on a franchise known to be professional through and through - i think the organization has had enough. Because clearly the Ta'amu incident was far worse than this one was.
i hope this is the case. I'm sick of seeing this kind of stuff around here.
