    If you had told me that an ex-Steeler would tweet something stupid re: current events

    I would've bet Mendy for sure.

    I didn't have any problem with what he said. It's pretty stupid that someone can be pressured like this if they don't fall in line with the PC police.

    It's the whole if you don't have anything nice to say, why say anything. Especially when you're famous and have lots of followers. If there's nothing wrong with it why apologize?

    Be a douche in the locker room with your buddies. Or on planetsteelers. Etc.

    But to put a comment out there on twitter, you have to know enough people are gonna see it that someone's gonna complain. As a society we can't discuss anything openly and honestly.

    Because he's probably too busy still counting his money.

    You never count your money when you're typing on the Twitter.
    They'll be time enough for countin', when the tweeting's done.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    I didn't see it going there. Nice

    I always though Kenny was an underrated actor after seeing Six Pack. It was his only movie, but he can always say he was in a movie with Diane Lane.

    I'm not sure why you're so quick to dismiss the 5 appearances as Brady Hawkes in The Gambler movies or 2 as MacShayne but in my book TV movies are still movies!!

    Would you be cool with it if a white athlete made thinly veiled racist remarks?

    Because it's the same thing.
