Hines (The Destroyer) Ward & the Pittsburgh Steelers - Against all odds
Its a hard year to be a Pittsburgh Steeler this year!
Besides having a somewhat new coach, tons of injuries and the hardest schedule all year maybe even all century!
The NFL wants to fine hines ward for legal hits and whatever else they can
Ray Anderson the NFL's executive vice president for football operations said "the hit was legal, but that it would be reviewed and may be made illegal in the offseason. "We are going to look at that, but under the current rules as written now, it was a clean hit. It was a legal hit."
Ward was fined $10,000 following the Steelers' 26-21 win at Jacksonville on Oct. 5, a week after drawing a $5,000 fine for a play in which he stepped over Baltimore cornerback Corey Ivy on Sept. 29. Ward did not draw a penalty on either play.
Hines just plays offense the way most players play defense not to mention all the other players who received fines this year:
the Jacksonville game, Steelers linebacker James Harrison was fined $20,000 for criticizing referee Brian Winter for calling a roughing-the-passer penalty against him. Two other Steelers also drew fines for that game, safety Ryan Clark $7,500 for unnecessary roughness — a late hit — and wide receiver Nate Washington $7,500 for taunting. Among the four players, the one-game fines totaled $45,000.
Maybe im just being bias cause thats my team but I feel like were being picked on!!!!
So while its legal keep destroying them hines until they find something else to cry about
he is some more hard hits for you to enjoy
