it's the week before the SB and that means... fluff stories on the teams involved. except this one isn't so much fluff.

Most Hated Player in Superbowl XLV?

my guess after 212 microseconds thinking about it... Hines Ward.

i was wrong.

i guess when your even more hated than your teammates and those include James Harrison and Hines Ward, you've really accomplished something.

way to go Rapistberger. you're a winner!

A few buddies of mine who are Steeler fans loathe Goodell and believe the man is personally trying to derail the Steelers franchise. Weird town, Pittsburgh. Very odd fanbase.

And spare me the "diehard" nonsense. They are about as diehard as Charger fans.

When Rapistburger does something stupid or Pittsburgh misses or gets bounced out of the playoffs, he is the worst quarterback ever. Steelers go to the superbowl and he is better than Elway, Montana or Young. Paranoia runs rampant in Pittsburgh. Goodell "planted" the assault victim in Georgia because he knew the Steelers were going to SB45...he fines Harrison because he knew the Steelers were going to SB45...

Un****ing real.

Who hates Hines Ward?!?!

I've never heard anything disparaging of him off the field, and the guy is a hard nosed worker with a genuine love for the game of football. It'd be like someone hating John Lynch, imo.

He's been in the top of the voting for SI's Player Poll for "Dirtiest Player in the NFL" for years and years.

So was Lynch... along with being fined dramatically more.

The whole Benburger rape thing has made a great impression on fans.

Not to mention he has the personality of an abusive town drunk.

That's because the majority of intelligent people leave Pittsburgh once they graduate from college, which leaves the yinzers, who are very annoying fans.

Reporter, "How are the strippers in Dallas?"
Ward, "They're good, I don't know, why?"
Reporter, "Cause you went to a strip club last night."
Ward, "Where did you hear that from?"
Reporter, "Dallas Morning News"

:rofl:

I'm kind of surprised you didn't pick the rapist first. Hines Ward was generally liked as a blue-collar player before the whole crack-back fiasco hit. I don't know anyone besides Steeler fans that has a positive opinion of Big Ben. He's a generally unlikable person.

You have to be kidding right ?


More like they have fans all over the country because the steel industry shrank and the jobs dried up and their fans moved all over hunting jobs , But don't let facts get in the way of posting stupid $hit on the net.



I hate that team , and their fans annoy me but if you are going to make a statement at least know what you are talking about and don't just blather stupid $hit.

Pittsburgh was just voted the #1 most livable city overall in the USA by Forbes magazine again. It leads in all catagories (ie. cost of living, unemployment rate, income growth, etc). Like slams against the city of Cleveland, when someone starts slamming the city of Pittsburgh, it's an instant tipoff that that person knows little to nothing about the city today.

That said, there's no debating the fact that the residents get very retarded over the Steelers and (recently) the Pens. Nothing else comes first there.

i bet that includes all of the Bears, except Hanie. Collins probably voted twice.

i know. i shocked myself. the thing about Ward is that he's 1) good, 2) a jackass, and 3) knows both of the above.

it's like Rivers. i can't stand the guy and he's an absolute Broncos killer, which makes me hate him even more.

I really enjoy watching Rothlesbeger play. Particularly since I think alot of what he does we can hope to see from Tebow in the future.

And yet none of that even makes me come close to wanting to move to Pittsburgh.

That's too bad, I go several times a year and the place is great. If I wasn't totally rooted down, I'd honestly consider it.

he's considered a dirty player by his peers. he takes cheap shots at unsuspecting defenders as a blocker. he's also unrepentent about what he gets away with. that makes him a jackass.

i guess you're looking for a fight, but i'm not taking the bait.

go to google. type in "hines ward dirty" and look at all the hits you'll get.

here's just one of many.
