The difference is Ben was never convicted, arrested, nor found guilty of anything. Rainey and others have been. Not that it makes it right, but it's true.

But thereís minor problem with the teamís intended transaction; rosters for franchises whose seasons have ended are locked until the day after the Super Bowl.

So, as the league office has confirmed to PFT, the Steelers canít actually waive Rainey until next month.

Things are about to get real awkward.

I agree. This is exactly how an organization should be run. There should be zero tolerance when it comes to stupidity.


as long as its not the QB

Quality joke, can't believe it took until the third page for someone to make it!!!!

Anyways, I hope this is a wake up call for Rainey and he cleans his act up and maybe can have a successful life on and off the field.

Just see them taking a chance and bringing him in. I actually had him mocked to the Jets in last years draft.

I was really rooting for Rainey, but he's easily replaceable.

Hope he learns from his mistakes. This one cost him his job.

I don't understand why so many people say this. Let the thread play itself out and at least add to the thread instead of making usless comments like that.

Rainey wasn't adding anything special to the team anyways. He wasfast and that's about it. Hopefully he learns and grows up quick or he will be following McClain right on out of the league.


That's exactly why I said that Laughing

Also not sure why everyone says "except with their QB"

They were in the midst of trading Ben. Trading options were pulled when he wasn't found guilty of anything.

I don't recall them ever looking to deal Ben, but that would've been a huge mistake anyways.

I actually see no connection between us and him, and in no situation would I see us bringing him. No idea why you would mention us.

this is true, but people don't want to hear it because when he was only "accused" in the court of public opinion people has made up their minds.

Well if that is the case Ray Lewis is a murderer... Laughing

What ever happened to innocent till proven guilty in this country Shocked
