“Offensive” Steeler Should Have His Man Card Revoked!

man-card

Back during the 2007 season I hosted the Bart Scott Show at Della Rose’s Tavern in their now closed location in Canton.

Bart was always entertaining and I’ll always remember some of the stories he shared both on and off the air, some of which I can’t repeat.

During one show we discussed what goes on in a scrum. What happens down there in that pile as players wrestle for the football? Why is it that a player who seemingly has possession before the scrum comes out of it with nothing?

Bart explained that a lot goes on in the pile. Anything is fair game in an attempt to get the football except one thing – messing with a man’s junk. THAT Bart would explain, is off limits – it’s an unwritten Man Law.

Unfortunately someone never explained that to Pittsburgh Steelers backup center Cody Wallace.

    I have to say that the Steelers are really starting to play low class football more than ever before. I know much goes on in those piles, but it seems me the coach has his issues too so why would the team be any different when he does not set a good example or standard. My respect for them has dropped. Even though they were rivals, I still respected the team, but that has now gone too. This team evidently has lost or forgotten their professionalism.

    I would say the man took a cue from his coach who is the pinnacle of good or bad sportsmanship! This game was on Live and was broadcast over many Networks area coverage. That was wide open!

    After watching Mike Tomlin DELIBERATELY impede Jacoby Jones’ path to the end zone, NOTHING they resort to on the football field comes as a surprise!

    Nothing new… Hines Ward and Harrision where fined numerous times for their dirty hits on players…. It made them famous they did it so much….

  5. Cal on said:

    It seems to me that this penalty would have fallen under the heading of “Giving him the business”. Scott Garceau tells a story of a ref using this terminology when explaining a foul once. Can’t remember the ref or the situation who this is credited to.
