    This tread would make the "Worst of Planet Steelers" list, IMO, even as I don't read all the posts.
    PLEASE DON'T FEED THE TROLLS

    I think there would be plenty of "when do we switch to the 4-3" or "Dick LeBeau sucks" posts that need to go their first.

    I don't think so at all. I think it's a fairly newsworthy note that Tomlin wanted Vick in Pgh. It illustrates some things about him that I might not have realized.

So, continue making up your straw man arguments, and then knocking them down. That is really impressive.
    The straw man argument is not mine...

    You posted this:

    MT having way too strong drive to be "pro black" at the expense of the team
    Your words.

    If you did not mean to type those particular words in that particular order, I can understand that...but, please, do not call my argument a straw man after you post that...

    And that, in turn, illustrates some things about you that I did not realize...

    Oh please Dukie. I didn't see any slurs or inappropriate remarks here. For my part, I merely pointed out something I seems apparent to me (him preferring to hire black guys at QB). Now if he comes back and hires a bunch of white guys at QB, of course the point would be moot. This is a discussion board. Politically correctness is an enemy of discussion IMO. We're here to discuss... If a racially charged issue comes up at your dinner table, are you going to shut it down? Of course not. It's the same thing isn't it?

    I would welcome Vick

    I'm sure none of you have ever made a mistake. No one here has stolen, lied, cheated on a spouse, done illegal drugs, committed a crime or anything of the like. We are saints sitting on our judgmental thrones pointing the finger at Vick...a guy who paid more than his time to society. We have a former linebacker who is idolized by the original poster...and said linebacker held a gun to the head of his own son. That is ok because he was a Steeler. People do stupid, sometimes evil things and hopefully they grow from them. I would have welcomed Vick with open arms.

    and PS...before you throw out how bad of a crime it is to abuse dogs...check your own eating habits. Most here support a meat industry that makes Vicks animal cruelty look like a walk in the park.
