    Making that statement was not moving backwards. It was only his opinion, nothing more, nothing less.

    His teammates and fans will have to deal with the consequences of Ben's actions. At least, until the end of this up coming season or another big story trumps Ben's. It will take some time. That is what you should realize.

    Ben might get more of this so be prepared.
    Thank You!
    Whoever it is who started this ridiculous thread needs to get a grip and grow the F' up. Hines is not your problem, sweetie....... Hines stays out of trouble, is a respected team leader and doesn't bring shame on the organization that feeds him. Too bad Ben is not
    %10 of the man Hines Ward is because if he was he wouldn't be in this predicament.

    I didn't think Hines said anything that wasn't what everyone is thinking. I'm glad he said it because these players need to be reminded once in a while, " your supposed to be there for the team. "

    Troys comment about Brady made me want to puke. How the heck is Brady a good example ? The pricks a cheat, unproffesional as can be when things don't go his way, knocks some chick up and turns around and gets married to another.
    " We'll do the same thing we always do, we'll take every situation from week to week and do what we think is best for that week and evaluate it on that basis.. If cheating will give us the edge as it has always done then, we will continue to cheat. " Bill Belichick

    I'm not shocked you don't get it... the Rooney's, FO and Ben all say the suspension is justified because they are doing damage control and agreeing with Goodell puts the issue to rest much faster then fighting it or saying no comment.

    You don't like the answer so you think it's wrong. Everyone else gets it but you....

    Then again, you are also cheering AGAINST the Steelers while Ben is out so I'm not surprised you are alone on this one.

    It absolutely, positively, 100% is a step backwards. The proper way to handle this in the press is to say "no comment" to the suspension (like Troy did), say we'll welcome him when he comes back and in the meantime we have confidence in the guys we have here. Hines did one of those three things right.

    But a player, well after the fact, making a statement about the suspension being justified only adds fuel to the media's fire.

    The suspension has been handed down. There's been a team statement about it and Ben said he's going to comply with it. In order to move forward as a team it is time for players to stop talking about it. And I sure as hell hope the team tells the players to STFU on this topic.

    I love Hines Ward as a player and he's one of the all-time great Steelers. No doubt about that. Hate him in front of the mic though. He needs some serious lessons in PR and media relations.

    I don't blame Hines for speaking his mind...

    I blame Ben for giving Hines a reason to opine...

    Frankly, this is a who cares article and comment from Ward. Why is this news? Everyone on the planets already knew this was what Ward was thinking. And it wasn't derogatory either. It is what it is. Ward's just saying that he is disappointed, but we'll get through it. Its short, clean and media useless. Nothing to be garnered by this.
