Madden Blows(pun intended)... but he is spot on. Also agree with the Pouncey tweet dig.
[I] I don't worship at the altar of Hines Ward. I think he's a self-serving phony. One person when the microphone is on, another when it's off.[/I]
I'm not sure why Hines needs to be "MVP, good guy Hines" all the time. Why do fans or critics need their players to be genuine 24/7/365?
Chadman is correct. Somewhere in between. He clearly wants more money from the Steelers. Who wouldn't. No player gives money away. He made the big demand looking for a big free agency offer...because that's the only way he leaves. He knows Steelers will make a good offer in a few months. And he'll take it. But he would switch teams for a huge offer...who wouldn't.
Madden is and always has been a HUGE boob and inflated windbag. We'd all prefer to hang out with Ward than Madden, trust me.
But Ward is a rich athlete. He likely would rub people the wrong way in public when he's drinking and they are pestering him. He parties. And so would I with his life.
But he was a good locker room guy despite what some say. He talked a loud game in the locker room and TOOK a leadership role. And was likely cocky. This made him a great Steeler.
Wallace is not a bad dude, but likely will be cocky and want paid. Big surprise. Big he's not a prima donna...yet.
He will sign an extension cause he won't play as RFA. And it will likely be somewat of a deal.
I like the way Wallace has handled himself as a Steeler. I don't think there's anything I could complain about in that area. The only complaint i have is technique and will. I just don't see him fighting for the ball like Antonio, let alone Fitz.
Madden's arrogance was not so thick this time that he didn't have some worth while thouhts in this article. He just took it too the extreme. Can't stand the guy, but he did have some insight, particularly about Twitter.
[QUOTE=insanesteelersfan;503095]And you are as Big of an Idiot as he is. I guess you think Wallace shoud take way way less, and be a good little Slave don't you.[/QUOTE]
This is the second time that I have had to warn you about the Code of Conduct since you snuck back on the site when we migrated to an upgraded message board. You cannot circumvent the filter by typing out swear words with spaces between the letters. You simply cannot refer to someone as a "good little Slave" on this board. For the record, I agree with your sentiments regarding Madden, but I cannot stand for the juvenile way that you present your argument. You have been banned from this board before, and if you continue this (even one more time now), then you will find yourself banned once again. Thin ice, my friend, thin ice.
[QUOTE=squidkid;503113]let me guess, you jackoff to a poster of wallace every night[/QUOTE]
And this is your first warning (and as you can probably tell with my previous post to insanesteelerfan, 3rd strike = You're out). Whether or not the response was provoked, this type of vulgarity will not be tolerated on a family-friendly forum. There are other Steeler sites that allow you describe sexual acts freely, but this site is not one of them.
You could be much more ruthless than that.....
Thanks Ruth. It was in large part the actions like the ones you called out above that lead me to leave for an extended time. I just can't stand that nonsense.

No problem, man...I typically PM warnings to individuals, but when things start to get out of hand like they started to in this thread, I felt the need to make it more public so that everyone realizes what will not be tolerated.

Exactly! Wallace gives little effort when the ball isnt spot on and he's covered. If he gave Brown's effort he'd be almost like Fitz.
