you mean as classy as wallace is acting?
wallace isnt a steeler. he chooses not to be one. he is not doing anything to help his former team or teammates succeed. i will not support him until he becomes a member of this team. i will view him as any other nfl player that holds out, as a distraction. as a greedy player that only cares about himself and not the team, organization or fans.
i dont cheer for non steeler nfl players duringh the season unless they are helping my fantasy teams make me money. until he does something that benefits me or makes me happy, no i wont support him and have no reason to.

They could still drop his tender amount at any time but have stated they will not do so because he has earned the 2.74 million and is worth it.
I read somewhere that he is the only FA in the league who hasn't signed.
To me, when you extend professionalism towards the Rooneys, it is reciprocated.
Especially when they didn't knock down the offer when they could have.
Either his representation sucks or he is concussed. I really can't believe he was a no show.
And the Steelers will always be the Steelers with or without Wallace, so I can see why the fan response would be anger toward the player instead of the team.
There is no rational in being a fanatic afterall
I blame the agent the most. I don't care who his past/current players are, you have to understand how each individual team works. What Detroit did, what Jacksonville did, means nothing. The Steelers simply will not deal with you if you don't come to camp. It's a stance they've had for decades. Why this chump of an agent thinks he will suddenly get them to change their S.O.P is head scratching and stupid. They are not going to blink and now you've put your client in a no-win situation.
I am hoping to see ben airing it out to Wallace on a regular basis, but this team is FAR from lost if Wallace (and agent) continue to act like jack asses and don't show up.
"What I’m going to do is work with Emmanuel Sanders because he’s here, and be excited about doing it.” - Tomlin (for some reason I really like this statement. And while some may see it as a swipe; I actually believe this is how Tomlin feels. It's not personal but he genuinely loves working with the players. He's excited that camp has started.)
