Two Steelers fined by league

It's no secret the Pittsburgh Steelers despise the league office and believe Commissioner Roger Goodell specifically targets them. It's also no secret -- though perhaps more of one -- that the league office isn't crazy about some of the Steelers. (The league will deny this vehemently but it's accurate.)

Two Steelers have been fined by the NFL: Troy Polamalu $15,000 for a horse collar tackle and Ike Taylor $15,000 for a head butt. (Nice one, Ike.) Ravens player Brendon Ayanbadejo was also fined for a horse collar tackle. He'll be $15,000 lighter in the wallet as well.

It's only fitting that it took just one game for the NFL to fine the Steelers. Now, the Steelers deserved the fines but this will only further their persecution complex.

Cue the Steelers saying the NFL targets only them in three, two, one...

Remember that time the Browns went to the Super Bowl? That was really nice of the Lerners to buy them tickets.

Apparently the NFL feels bad about giving them the superbowl against Seattle so they're trying to even the score.

By the way how many Super Bowls has your team won?  I am smart enough to know it is not 6.

Why don't we just play flag football like you obviously want.... touch a QB (have you seen what happens to Big Ben every game or J. Harrison as far as holds???) touch a reciever without the ball or block with a reciever...Hines Ward...  You deserve to comment on the Olympic girl sports, not the NFL mister limp wrist!  Your pathetic.

Freeman, learn to use a comma before but, and, or. You have an independent clause. It can stand on its own as a sentence. If you separate two independent clauses with one of the aforementioned conjunctions, use a comma. Please.

I sure hope they don't teach them to play football like the Chargers.  I enjoy watching football more then one week into the playoffs.

Yup, he got paid.  The best part of the entire thing is that it pisses off twits like you which provides entertainment for the rest of us.

Do you actually get paid for writing those six sentences?  Top notch reporting.  Top notch.
