I bleed black & gold........BUT RED WHITE AND BLUE trumps that...this idiot needs to go......SOMEWGERE IN THE MID-EAST
Plenty of athletes tweeted their excitement at the news of Osama bin Laden's death. Rashard Mendenhall, however, wasn't convinced a celebration was in order.
"What kind of person celebrates death?" the Pittsburgh Steelers running back tweeted. "It's amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We've only heard one side..."
He also expressed his opinions on whether the planes that hit the World Trade Center on September 11 caused them to collapse.
"We'll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style," Mendenhall said.
Steelers President Art Rooney II addressed Mendenhall's comments in a statement posted on the team's website.
?I have not spoken with Rashard so it is hard to explain or even comprehend what he meant with his recent Twitter comments,? Rooney said. ?The entire Steelers? organization is very proud of the job our military personnel have done and we can only hope this leads to our troops coming home soon.?
Dude I'm with you. The Pens and Steelers are my teams here in the Burgh but to suffer another black eye like Fumblehall's ignorant stupidity and lack of acknowledgement of the facts, well that really stings me. Ben's rape allegations, Harrison beating his girlfriend a couple years back, Davenport doing the same when he was here and even though I think it should be legal, Santonio's inability to keep away from weed when he was here has really turned our Steelers from a once proud organization to one of the sh*ttiest. I bet the Chief and Myron are really ashamed in the afterlife right now looking down upon this team that they loved for so long. I mean Fumblehall to have total disregard for the thousands of soldiers and civilians around the world that lost their lives directly and indirectly to Bin Laden and his orginization makes me sick. I hope Fumblehall leaves the Steelers soon. He is a self righteous @$$ any way!
