The Mighty MJD unearthed an interesting tidbit of NFL news that certainly didn't make any headlines:
Pro Bowl linebacker Joey Porter was fined $15,000 by the league after he threatened an official following the Steelers’ 20-13 loss to the Raiders last Sunday. Porter, angered for an unknown reason, was flagged 15 yards after telling an official that he would come after him.
"Angered for an unknown reason." Well, yeah, obviously. Is there another player in the NFL who combines the emotional swings of a 12-year-old girl with the aggressive braggadocio of the strongest retard at the Special Olympics?
The big story in Pittsburgh this season has been all about how much Ben Roethlisberger sucks, and as much as I enjoy that story, it detracts from another constant Steeler truism, and that truism is "Joey Porter is an asshole." How has a cockbag like this only ever been shot once?
