    Joey Porter.....Upstanding Guy?

    From the quotes I have heard Porter is thankful to the Steelers for his time there and appreciates being cut at the right time. Maybe he planned on holding out anyway and this gives him the opportunity to score big and be shown some love. I don't like the statements on the NFL channel that he would fit great in Cincy, but we have no say. For all of Joey's brash pre-game talk he has always been a nice guy supported the city. A friend of mine met him his rookie year and when she asked him to pose for a photo with her he said no problem " I ain't big time" . I've heard almost the same thing from the many fans who love Joey a few times since and he has always been funny and somewhat humble. Goes to show your TV personality is not the same as your actual personality. I wish him well.
    Peace & Yours in Black 'N Gold,

    Lyn

    porter is pure class, and i'm gonna miss him, but it was time to cut the cord, he wants something the front office isn't willing to give him.......no point in dragging this out and having a potential hold out and a problem, now we can plan right now on what we need instead of having to scrap at the last min, and porter can go somewhere while teams still have a lot of cap space instead of scrapping to find a new team........ it's a win win situation in a sense

    Joey Porter was always great to the fans and very appreciative of his success to the Rooneys and BC. Say what you want about him or how you felt about his actions on the field but the guy was a father, husband, all around family man would never forget where he came from and what it meant to play in the NFL.

    It was a class move by Joey Porter not to rip the Rooneys/Steelers organization for him being cut. I wish Joey the best and hope he has a great career the rest of the way. Except against the Steelers.
