    He plays the game how it is suppose to be played, going hard 24/7 and doing whatever it takes to help his team.
    I have mad respect for him and he does a hell lot of good for the city of Pittsburgh.
    I've met him at his bar and he is a hell of guy who i a rarity at the WR position.

    I know I was the same way as a WR.
    I didn't give 2 poohies if i was considered dirty cuz all i wanted to do was knock cats out, catch the ball, and help my team.
    I say go ahead and knock as many fools out as you can.
    But, if you are being excessive it is going be caught by officials and you will suffer consequence so just be aware of that.
    But otherwise Im fine with it.

    Football's becoming a "meow" whipped game.
    He's considered dirty because he makes illegal blocks, did you watch the you tube video?

    Holy shiat...some of those "blocks" where potential career enders.
    Nothing manly about bashing into somebody after the play when they are standing around completely defenseless.
    Didn't realize the youtube video was already posted.
    I need to learn to go back to previous pages.

    This guy is a douchebag.
    I don't understand why he hasn't gotten fined.

    He is dirty, if the players are the ones saying so I don't think there's any way to disagree, they're the ones on the field with the guy. The NFL needs to start flagging him for hitting with his helmet. I'm not kidding when I say I hope he ends his career on a hit like one of the ones below:


    Hines Ward Blocking

    Not a single clean hit, yet he gets praised for each and every one of them.

    Bart Scott: Helmet to helmet, the only one in the video that did not result in an injury.
    Nick Ferguson, concussion, got a CT scan after the game.
    Keith Rivers: Broken Jaw.
    Daven Holly: Concussion, and the worst hit of all, the play was over, tackle was made.
    The one closest to clean was on Ed Reed, but it was still a cheap shot, he fakes a block on Ivy just to light up Reed with the top of his head. Ed Reed: Questionable for the following week, head injury, concussion most likely.
    In that video he leads with his helmet on almost every block.
    If that was a defensive player hitting him like that they would get penalized, fined and called out by the media.
    Apparently its okay because he's a receiver and receivers aren't typically known as tough guys.

    I have no problem with him laying guys out or even doing it when they don't see him, but I'm not a fan of leading with the helmet.
    No doubt this is why his peers label him as the dirtiest player in the league.

    Just a thought but could the reason that there are no clean blocks in the video be because the person who created this video chose to put dirty ones in there as a way to argue that he is a dirty player.
    Just a thought.
    "There are 3 things that sell in America:
    Violence, sex, and drugs.
    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."

    That's possible, but it appears to be a pro Ward video and nothing to do with the article.
    Doesn't mean that the dude that made that video doesn't enjoy seeing people laid out no matter how cheap the shot.

    Did you watch it?

    Video starts with "Hines Ward, football player first, wide receiver second."
    The info says "A few clips of Hines Ward showing off that he is not only good for catching TDs."


    You can't even call him old school, the old school guys wore helmets made of leather(or none at all) and wouldn't lead with a nearly bare skull unless they had a death wish.

    He's a dirty player, there's a reason his peers voted him that way. - It's not just my opinion, it's the opinion of 11.6% of NFL players.

    If you like Hines Ward, you like a dirty player.

    I happen to like Ward's style and determination.

    As far as a "blindside" block, nothing illegal there.
    Just because the guy is not seeing him come off the corner to wreck someone, that does not make it dirty.
    It makes is effective.
    No suprise there.
    What's that supposed to mean?

    Don't be shy and beat around the bush.

    The first one is questionable.
    Poor quality too.

    The last one is clean.
    Get him right from the side.

    I agree, there are some blocks in there that should be a penalty.
    However, if they are that bad why has he not received a fine?
    Or has he?

    It's a mans sport.
    It's kill or be killed.

    True.

    It's easy to pick out the so-called dirty blocks.
    Don't make it seem like it happens every play.

    I have always thought he was a dirty player and got away with it by being called a "hard-worker" or whatever.

    And that is not 11.6 percent that think he is dirty ... that is 11.6% that think he is THE DIRTIEST. I think it is safe to say a lot more than that would call him dirty.

    If he laid ANY one of our players out the way he did in that video everyone on here would be calling for his head.

    Good point with the "dirtiest" segment.

    And, I couldn't agree more on the closing statement. It might even change that closet Steelers fan ultra's opinion :P
