Hines Ward named NFL's Dirtiest Player
I don't even know what to say to this...it is unfreakingbelievable....maybe I forgot but I don't remember the last time Hines Ward intentionally stomped on any players heltmetless head, or the last time he said he wanted to hurt somebody, or the last time he intentionally lunged at someones knee

A Sports Illustrated poll of NFL players has found that Hines Ward is considered by his colleagues to be the dirtiest player in the league, with Albert Haynesworth and Joey Porter tied for second.
The question, "Who is the dirtiest player in the league?'' was asked of 296 players during training camp this summer, and Ward, the Steelers' wide receiver, got 11.6 percent of the vote, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Haynesworth, the Redskins defensive tackle who as a Tennessee Titan in 2006 received a five-game suspension for stepping on the helmetless head of Cowboys center Andre Gurode, got 6 percent of the vote. Porter, the Dolphins' linebacker, also got 6 percent.
Rounding out the Top 5 (or should it be Bottom 5?) are Bengals safety Roy Williams, who got 5.1 percent of the vote, and Titans center Kevin Mawae, with 4.6% percent.
I just think it is funny that all of these big defensive players are afraid of a little wide reciever who plays the game the way it's supposed to be played. Stop bitching and grow a pair.
ps. Check out some of the comments....freaking priceless.
