    I'm not defending either of them. If they can't take some heat? Stay off social media.

    This is a ploy I think the Steelers and Wallace are playing. The Steelers wanted to franchise Wallace this year but couldn't, however if a team is willing to give up a first round pick and give him than fitz, God bless them. I think this is just a way to keep Wallace until they can franchise him

    I agree with you Bo-Bo, it's pretty obvious that Wallace isn't worth Fitz money.... YET. I think this is just a way of keeping Wallace in the burgh.

    $$$$$

    Do I understand these athletes getting ticked off when some fan antagonizes them? Sure.
    Do I understand they want to use harsh language to respond? Yup.

    But when you're employed in the business of serving, entertaining, performing, or producing for customers? You just can't do it. You have to restrain yourself (or else keep yourself out of situations where you might go off on somebody). Pointy-head has to realize where the money to pay his salary comes from...and grow up. He's still relatively young; this is a golden opportunity for him to learn and mature. We'll see how he does with the opportunity.

    Pouncey looks like a walking graffiti poster. http://twitter.com/#!/MaurkicePounce...620096/photo/1

    I think is truly amazing the power people put in written words these days merely because it is typed on a screen for all to see. You see, before this era, these same player reactions, emotions, and expressions were all there but gone in the next instant after they were spoken. How many of us have said something verbally only to regret it before the words exit our lips.

    The age of twitter and facebook is as much a curse as it is a blessing. .....but i suppose it gives some people something to talk about.

    I think he looks very attractive to pick up for a 1st round pick to other teams. This makes other teams turned off by the amount of money and his attitude for asking for it. He wants to be a steeler.
