    and you do? let the sexual assault go but cut the guy who tweets? be consistent. Neither guy has EVER been charged with anything. I'm only being consistent. My opinion of either won't change until they're charged. And if he gets in a fight at a bar and gets charged with it? To me that's not a big deal. Not big enough to cut a young, immature player. Now if it's DV or sexual assault that he gets charged with, cut him.

    I'm afraid that "in this day and age", the chances of having a roster of 53 high character guys are slim to none. All teams are being forced to lower their standards ( if they had any) because more kids coming out of college have one or more encounters with the law in their past, or get into trouble after they sign.

    Of course, it's questionable that the Steelers ever had such a roster. In the '60s we had Big Daddy Lipscomb, not exactly an angel. In the '70s, Fats Holmes would have been in the slammer for a long time if the Rooneys hadn't moved heaven and earth to keep him out. Joe Gilliam was a druggie. And so on.

    I care about character but times have changed. I notice very few people objected to the Blount signing, despite some incidents in his past.

    Why have this discussion board if we are not allowed an opinion ? Who here isn't an armchair quarterback ? I want to hear what poster on this board or any of the sites is a professional scout, coach, player, trainer ? Why feel you have the right to insult and bash another persons views or opinions..... Same old posters ready to insult and go with, " I/we don't judge these players " but, you sure and hell judge the people here on the site. We have more of a connection with each other than the athletes that we speak of.

    Blount had disciplinary problems in college long before "The Punch". The problems had nothing to do with hitting. I'm all for hitting. But not after the whistle blows or after the game ends. I also have no problem with signing Blount. What he did in college is immaterial at this point. People grow up and I assume he has matured until he proves otherwise.
