this is a long but good article well worth reading about Colbert posted by kipper from the Pittsburgh Sports Forum...
Oh F Kipper. Friggin' tard,
Used to own an anti-Nutting blog but then turned into a shill.

Obviously, that's why Colbert traded up in 2003 to nab Troy so Cowher couldn't draft Alonzo Jackson in round 1 like he wanted, and why Dan Rooney basically pulled rank in 2004 to draft Ben when Cowher preferred Shawn Andrews.
The two most important players the last 10 years and "Power hungry" Bill Cowher didn't want either of them and was basically under-minded by superiors to make it happen.
