I suspect the Steelers asked the league to not allow WRs to hit anybody any more to give them an out with Ward.

If Ward has to stop blowing people up every other play, he'll lose favor with the fans, and the Rooney's will be able to let him walk without overpaying him and will more easily get fan support for doing so since people will point to his diminishing impact/value more easily.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

This is clearly one of the strangest posts (all of them included) that I have read on this board.

Dan Rooney was strenuously and loudly objecting to the rule, according to a report published in the days leading up to its adoption by the league. I know I read this--if I can find a link, I'll post it.

Are you Oliver Stone. That is as crazy a conspiracy theory as I have ever heard.

The NFL's eight-man competition committee had unanimously recommended what has been called the "Hines Ward Rule" to owners. The Steelers were the only team to vote against the rule that aims to eliminate helmet-to-helmet contact on blindside blocks.

CONSPIRACY THEORY #2

The Steelers voted against this rule, even though they knew it was going to pass, because die-hard fans like us would love them for it.

I am shocked that none of you bastages responded with the standard "Okay, a simple 'wrong' would've done just fine." I can make one innocent "Waterboy" quote and an entire thread is suddenly hijacked with every conceivable line from that movie, but I guess the love for Adam Sandler movies does not go all the back to "Billy Madison." :moon :lol:

Is there any coincidence that they chose brown and orange uniforms and called them 'mud dogs' as the worst team in college football for this movie? Or is it just me?
