    Well.....one of us doesn't get it.

    You're assuming he doesn't know his team has dirty players on it. That doesn't mean he's not allowed to talk about how dirty Pittsburgh is.

    Yeah, evidently you don't. Here's a bit of news for you--one of Cincinnati's players threw such a cheap shot in the game this past weekend that he was recently suspended for the first three(!) games of next season. So, you know, there's no assumption on my part at all--anyone who is interested enough in pro football to take to a message board to post about it certainly is interested enough to know when one of the most high-profile players on his team has been suspended for three games.

    I'm not sure how allows these things and who doesn't, which is why I never said someone isn't allowed to talk about how dirty Pittsburgh is (had you bothered to actually read my posts which you seem to be so interested in). I said it's foolish. And I stand by that.

    Ryan, if you stop by here and read this...I didn't say shit. I thought the hit was clean.

    Go Bucks!

    Ok, but under your assumption, the said fan is a huge hypocrite. Because bemoaning some other team for the same shit your team does is pathetic and hypocritical.

    They aren't a hypocrite until they comment on their own team.

    How are you people not getting this? Pittsburgh is a dirty team. That statement is either true or false. Whether it's true or false is not determined by the fandom of the person who makes the statement. The person making the statement can be fully aware that his team is or isn't dirty. It doesn't change the veracity of the statement.

    Complaining about the speck in someone else's eye while ignoring the log in your own is hypocritical.

    :smash:

    Where was it said that anybody is ignoring anything?

    edit: Here's what the statement says: "Pittsburgh is a dirty team."
    Here's what you're reading for some reason: "Pittsburgh is a dirty team and mine isn't."

    You're adding the last part.

    Why complain about one if he other is true. It's nonsensical.

    A person can't comment on Pittsburgh being dirty if they're a Bengals fan, but they can if they're a Jacksonville fan? That's nonsensical.

    Yes generally folks who have a problem don't typically go around complaining about other people with that same problem because it makes them look like tools. Apparently you don't see it that way. I'm not sure, but I think that makes you a Tool. :)

    Well I can't force you to be right.

    Oh I totally get your stance, I just wouldn't stand for someone to bitch about the very problem they are a part of. In my mind, if you exhibit the same problem you are complaining about, then ya really ought to STFU. CAN you complain about it? Sure, but it falls upon deaf ears.

    cincibuck You kids stay off my lawn!

    Thought this was the Shazier thread. Just wanted to say that IMO Ryan's actions/behavior following his hit and fumble recovery were disappointing. Looked more like something from WWF than from his Buckeye days.
