  •  Well, I like Terry Bradshaw a little more now. (4+ / 0-)

    At least more than Ben.  Actually, I always had a feeling about the dude.  I'm the same size, always played and excelled at sports thru college and beyond.  I don't know the percentages relative to pro athletes versus others with money, power, and fame, but I think that's the kicker, pun intended.  But I dislike that sports in general are disparaged by the actions of a few.  
    That said, Pittsburgh, get rid of Ben, but if you trade him to Seattle I'm gonna be pissed.

      because of his statements about Ben recently?  I can't remember exactly but he came down hard.

        at least is coming down hard on Ben.  They don't appear to like each other much, and now it's probably irreconcilable.  Bradshaw also said management, the Rooney's were very pissed, and he probably gets that straight from the horse's mouth.

        •  Bradshaw ... "learning not to like him". (5+ / 0-)

          Statement:

          "When I told him to park the motorcycle, he got pissed. Then he had the accident. Ever since then, he doesn't like me, and I'm learning not to like him. And he wants to break all my records and I say 'go for it.' Break them. I really don't care. I've done my job. My job is over and now you have your shot. But in my opinion, he has got to realize who he is. He is an elite athlete in the National Football League. You've got an image problem right now. The best thing to do is not put yourself in that position again. When you're through playing football, you can do whatever you want to do, but right now, stay clean."
