    You knew I was clicking on this thread.

    I'm surprised. Hines was always one of the Steelers I actually respected, even as I hated him. :(

    Steelers and Georgia don't mix well in the offseason.
  5. I think it's a fucking conspiracy.

    Nope, and neither does anyone from the University of Georgia.

    Damon Evans is disappointed in Hines.

    None, since I was going to start one if there wasn't already one going. More proof that this is arguably the worst group of human beings in team history.

    But watch. Ward will apologize and say all the right things. Maybe he'll even cry for the cameras. The Steelers will say they are deeply concerned by his behavior, or something to that effect, and then ignore it. If he gets a suspension, Mike Tomlin will answer every question about Ward's absence by saying, "The standard is the standard" and most of the fans will forget it the next time he catches a touchdown pass.

    It seems the only thing that can really get the Steelers to turn on a player is if he refuses to play the game, or if he is just too stupid to do it, like Santonio Holmes. I'm more and more convinced that their dumping him had nothing to do with any form or morality. It is because he was publicly unapologetic about his behavior.

    Never mind that their tough stance really accomplished nothing except perhaps costing them a Super Bowl. It certainly shouldn't be enough to cover up the black eye this group of players keeps giving them.

    Hines Ward is old. That's almost certainly a bigger sin to the Steelers than the DUI is.

    Also true. Honestly, if they had held on to Holmes and somehow signed him to an extension (incredibly unlikely after the suspension), Ward's job would have been in jeopardy without this. As it stands, he is still one of the three best receivers on that team.

    Hines was just lookin' out for his reality TV career...can't make it to Celeb Rehab without some sort of addiction.

    One of the nicest professional athletes I have ever dealt with.

    You can't condone drinking and driving. But how many people on this message board have been a) popped for DUI or b) said a few prayers after the nights they weren't caught?
