    It lets you see who the REAL assholes are around here. It would be pretty easy if you didn't like Steve to just not make a comment in a tribute thread. But the true assholes have to talk **** just to be pricks.

    I don't think noting that Steve wasn't the type of guy to be worshipped makes someone an a**hole.

    I think talking **** about him in a thread titled "tribute to #9" does.

    Very rare for a women to commit violent suicide, even more rare for homicide/ suicide. Plus her ex-boyfriend was allegedly heard bragging he'd kill Mcnair a week or so prior and he had ties with the NPD. An officer requested the case be reopened citing numerous investigative errors but was denied by a grand jury.

    Way too many oddities..........

    How about checking your morality coat at the door? What McNair did with his personal life is his business. If you let athletes serve as your role model, you'll be consistently disappointed. Even "golden boy" Tom Brady has 2 "illegitimate" children with 2 different mothers but that never gets much press play. Image/morality not worthy of serious consideration in shaping your perception of an NFL player (or any professional athlete for that matter).

    I hear you bro... He was truly one of the reasons I became a fan of this team, even all the way on the other side of the world.

    I mean he was just such a warrior....Steve McNair... The dude seriously gave a new meaning to 'Go Hard or Go Home' (ironically literally "go hard till the owner forces you home"). I really thought that guy would get us a ring, he deserved it and we coulda and shoulda won several with him at the helm. Key dropped pass (by drew bennett, i think, that woulda put us in FG range for the win?) against the Pats (note - the pats won it that year and we gave them the toughest game that we should won @ Gillette in the cold), course there is that SB year... the ball just didn't bounce our way i guess...

    The way he was handled at the end will always remain a blemish on this franchise. I don't care about business and what not, if they didn't want him there, a simple call to his agent or even him could have avoided so much drama. Even worse, is that he wasn't like Favre for example, a 'me-first kunt' - he took it in stride and didn't make anything out of it.

    RIP Steve... Ur a legend in my book homie....

    I watched the "Music City Miracle" playoff game last night on DVD. God it brings back so many memories. Now #9 didn't do real well in that game but he gave it all and then some. Probably the greatest game in franchise history. The look on his face when Kevin Dyson returned the kick was just incredible. Both him and Eddie thought the season was over...however they kept us alive and gave us an AFC championship later. And, once again, bring back THAT uniform! #9 music city miracle.jpg

    I'll never forget Vince at Steve's funeral. That guy...just fearless, that's the word I think of anytime someone mentions him. Fearless.

    Wow... I didnt see this till now...

    Anti Morsi for sureeeeeeeeee!!

    Man that guy is a crook. He shoulda never been president in the first place. When he was voted in, many people thought it was rigged. He also made insane promises and bribed the poor for votes with meat and food. He is an extremest who uses Islam in the most wrong way. Let me tell you guys, Muslim people are some of the nicest ppl you'll ever meet. As a Christian i feel the need to tell you b/c of how they are portrayed by seemingly everything is so bad. A few always ruin it for the rest....

    Anyway bak to Morsi, before the planned protest that recently got him out, anti-morsi people signed this petition with their name and national ID (for proof) and it got 22M+ signatures. Thats FARR more than those who actually voted for him when he won (about 10 or 15M I think). When 35M people hit the streets against him, it PROVED it. The army had to remove him, they didn't have a choice and it was the RIGHT thing to do.

    He cancelled the re-election that was supposed to happen. He filled the gov't and congress (our version) with all his buddies and extremists. This fool was selling our gas and electricity to his buddy terrorists (Hamas). He was scratching his nuts on TV. He was just everything you don't want in your leader.

    PLEASE DO NOT LISTEN TO YOUR MEDIA, ITS DISGUSTING. Also, the fact that Obama and his administration supported him in the first place, and continually support him, is ludicrous. How the F can you support a guy like that who is ruining our country...
