What's the deal with Tennessee Titans players and their hatred of the Steelers Terrible Towels? Former Titans running back LenDale White has been seen stomping on towels before (see: above) and on Sunday after the Titans toppled Pittsburgh in Week 1, players were heard yelling expletives relating to the yellow fan favorites.
According as reporters hanging around waiting for Mike Munchak to talk after the game, they heard someone in the Titans locker room yelling "F--- those Terrible Towels."

Ray Rice has also been known to come away with some disrespect for the Terrible Towels, but at least he's a member of the Ravens?
The towels are pretty closely tied with Pittsburgh and the Steelers so you can see where the hate comes from, except the money raised from selling the towels goes to charity.
Which makes the continued decision of the Titans to funnel hate towards the inanimate yellow pieces of cloth quite bizarre.
