Clark is annoying and I know over the last year or so he has lost a lot of the Steelers fans respect with some of his ridiculous arrogant comments.
    I see what you are saying but also you have to realize that these guys are so proud to be Steelers. Even if they were not on that team dont you think that one day they would want to say to their kids or something "i played on the Steelers thats the team that Won 8 superbowls and your dad helped them win two of those." I dont know it just seems like they have more of a right to say something then everyone else except the guys who were on that team.

    This is the truest statement about the whole subject. Twitter wasn't big or even around when maost of it all happened!! This is all about the new fangled devices and having access to what the players are thinking at any given moment or just them putting stuff out there to get a reaction !!

    and let's not forget, several of our current and former players have publicly stated they felt spygate played a part in 01 and 04, peezy, hines and the bus being 3 of them. it just annoys me when people act like it's tomlin's fault guys tweet. every single team has guys tweeting stupid ****. there's only so much you can do to control it

    Remember it is Twitter, and one needs to actively seek out the message or follow the Tweets. It is not like they are renting billboards and running commercials, or calling SI. Even so, they do sound pretty stupid sometimes.

    This reinforces my theory that internet is making a percentage of the population stupid. And don't worry - myself included sometimes.

    Why? They are people the same as we are! The only difference is their quotes go mainstream and ours don't!

    Probably one reason why the Pro Bowl effort was so lazy. I know that players do not go 100% in that game, but a better effort could have been displayed if they weren't so interested in being able to use Twitter on the sidelines during the game.

    I have nothing against anyone that uses Twitter, but for the record, I think it is stupid as hell and I would never use it or follow anyone that tweets. I even hate the word tweet. JMO

    Could you imagine if Greg Lloyd had twitter or even Jack Lambert? The controversy would be 10x what it is now when Harrison or Clark say something.
