    Hell, if they just cut back road trips for the local NHL teams, I sure as hell hope they didn't travel across the country for a story on Pittsburgh Steelers players. Heck, I didn't even think L.A. cared about the NFL.

    I would go lite on the word "take".

    There is really no new ground covered. There is nothing in the story that is new. Much of what was written has been discussed over and over right here at sj

    Interesting read.

    And set up nicely at the top of the story.

    Courson was "Mr. Steeler?" Don't think so.

    And Gilliam's life started down the toilet before he was done playing. The drug abuse was a big part of what ruined his playing career.

    Interesting read, but a few things have me scratching my head.

    Is that really interesting enough to the average LA Times reader to warrant that much time and space in a paper that is cutting staff, space and local pro coverage?
