    Re: I was wrong...

    yeah shawn i gotta give you some props too. i didnt mean to give you any crap the other day or anything. i definetly understand where your coming from. at first i was pretty angry he was dealt to a good team in the afc and it was only a 5th but in reality a 5th is much better than nothing. the reality is holmes has very little trade value. i bet there were plenty of teams that were not interested in holmes considering his rap sheet

He is a weapon...make no mistake. He is not just "piece of carbon" easily replaced. We will miss his presence on the field. I don't like anything that weakens our team. And this team we currently have is weaker from a talent standpoint than last season.

    With that said, I heard the Rooneys were about to cut Holmes. They had enough. They were done dealing with the antics. If that's the case then a 5th was just icing on a real bad situation. I understand that the Rooneys have spent years building their rep and they had to take a stand. I also understand Holmes forced their hand. So, overall I believe it today to be a move in the right direction. I still think Ben and Reed need suspended...shoot Reed probably should have been cut. But, today I feel better about the situation. I doubt I will ever agree with sending him to a conference power but it is what it is. At least the Steelers are doing what they need to do...not to become the Bengals.
    Personally I think this is a cry for help. A need for acceptance. Most of the posters here were against how you felt about this situation and after a day or two you found yourself on the outside. A place that isnt comfy for you. Not warm and fuzzy. You need the comfort of others. And I understand this. But truth be told....say it like it is Shawn.

    You should just go into psychiatry because you are obviously gifted in the field. Everyone knows how I hate going against the grain.

    No harm no foul brother. I think this has just been a very emotional offseason.

    You are comparing a grown man with a college degree to one of your kids? I punish mine for not cleaning their rooms, that doesn't mean that Hines Ward should be suspended if he doesn't keep his locker tidy.
    I don't have kids. but if I did, I would punish them for a lack of judgement. and I'm not even paying my kids 100 million dollars to be my kid. but similar to a grounding, a couple week suspension is in order.
    Again, you are comparing a grown man to a child. I don't know if anyone ever told you, but sometimes kids grow up and down follow the judgment that there parents think is right.

    Oh where or where does the nannying end?
