I could make jokes about how they are so strict on guys like Rainey, but then let guys like Harrison and Big Ben do whatever they please, but it's just the sad nature of sports - superstars get treated as superstars, and others don't.


Big Ben was never charged or arrested for anything. Im not going to get into a debate about that, but people bringing this up are just looking to stir ish.

You are right that bigger names are given more leeway to screw up. Not just with the Steelers, but every single team in every single sport.

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

Hope he learns from his mistakes. This one cost him his job.
my guess is they do what they did with Ta'amu, give him one more chance on a cheaper minimum one year contract and being him into camp. They'll have to really earn their spots this year.


They already gave Rainey a chance and he blew it by having another incident. They aren't going to bring him back and they shouldn't.
what was the other incident?

I'd guess he was referring to the stalking thing in college?

The alleged victim in the domestic violence episode involving former University of Florida athlete Christopher Rainey says there was no crime and she wants the state of Florida to drop the charges, Rainey's attorney says.


Wow, what is going on...

This is getting befuddling...

I haven't followed too closely.

If this happens do the Steelers owe him an apology, or is it just part of the business?
