Say it isn't so, Hines Ward

I stopped believing in Santa a long time ago. Well, last year, anyway. I also know the athletes I cover aren't always who they seem. But Hines Ward was different to me. Sure, on the field, he sometimes crosses the line with cheap shot blocks, but off of it, he's a good guy. A great guy, actually, respected by most in the NFL.

So his arrest for alleged driving under the influence is a shock. It really is. Even in this hyper-cynical times, it is. Ward is the last player I'd pick to get busted for this. I've interviewed him probably 15-20 times and more importantly, I've interviewed others about him, and not just Steelers players. If you did a top five list for players respected off the field, Ward would make it. (On the field he'd make the top five most hated.)

The guy's the "Dancing with the Stars" champ, for goodness sake.

This incident, if true, is going to shatter Ward's pristine off-field image.

No, I stopped believing in Santa, but this is still a stunning moment.

And calling a man a RAPIST who has never been charged, isn't ignorant? So, you say CBS blocks that? You really are an ignorant A HOLE. YOU are the type I'm complaining about -- some who only rants ignorantly because they put their team (or hatred of others. Grow up, by the way.) ahead of anything else. Ray Lewis is a Raven (and I'm a Steeler fan), and I still think it's wrong to post that he's a murderer, as some do. You think it's just cool -- dummy, is what you are.

Read my point before you post stupidly. I said ALL posts are going the IGNORANT route, not just about Steelers dumb dumb. Calling people rapists, and killers (ever heard of RAVEN Ray Lewis, dumb dumb!) is just ignorant. Like you.

Last time I check, Hines Ward is human and as far as I'm concern, humans do make mistakes, ask those jurors on the Casey Anthony's case.

Then mandude stop posting. Quit your crying. These blogs are great. They censor everything on here. There is nothing inappropriate on these pages. Your just mad because it is a Steeler that is being teased.

They are not talking about his BAC because he refused to have it taken. Come to your own conclusions. Hines ward is a pretty good guy. At least he didn't rape anyone in a bar bathroom.

Maybe he isn't smiling because he wasn't guiltily of the charges.  I love Steelers haters their teams usually suck so they live to tear down the best so they can feel better about their sorry team.
