    Re: Porter asking for lead from Secret Service

    do you really think that Porter would think of something that subtle as having an impact? The guy only functions on two wavelenghts. 1. Talking trash, and like an idiot if you ask me. 2. blitzing

    Steelers | Porter will have knee surgery Wednesday, unknown which knee
    Tue, 23 May 2006 22:00:07 -0700

    Ed Bouchette, of Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reports Pittsburgh Steelers LB Joey Porter (knee) will have arthroscopic knee surgery Wednesday, May 24, but it is not known which knee he will have operated on. Porter underwent knee surgery last August on his left knee to repair torn cartilage. It is also unknown as to why the surgery will take place now or if a new injury was only recently discovered.

    Steelers | Porter could be a training camp holdout
    Tue, 23 May 2006 20:58:30 -0700

    Adam Schefter, of the NFL Network, reports Pittsburgh Steelers LB Joey Porter will consider holding out from training camp, and a potential contract stalemate is on the horizon. Porter has two years remaining on a contract that is scheduled to pay him $3.85 million this season and $5 million next season. When Steelers executives were asked about the idea of Porter staying away from the team recently they did not seem overly concerned saying it was a voluntary minicamp. It will be a big deal if Porter is not at training camp.

    DON'T BELIEVE THE SPIN ON PORTER

    Despite rampant media reports that Steelers linebacker Joey Porter will miss the balance of offseason workouts due to arthroscopic knee surgery, we've confirmed and re-confirmed that the root of Porter's absence to date from voluntary workouts was his dissatisfaction with his contract.

    We're not suggesting that he isn't really having surgery, or that he's only having surgery to provide himself with some cover. But it's a coincidence, and we're certain that the root of the problem is his pay. Or lack thereof.

    Porter will make $3.85 million in 2006 and $5 million in 2007.

    They won the Superbowl, now it is all about every player thinking they deserve more money! The only team that I have seen that was able to avoid this was the Pats, they just cut the players that started talking this way. It has depleted their talent pool a bit, but I do not count them out for long.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    PORTER DENIES CONTRACT SQUABBLE
    Mike Florio

    Steelers linebacker Joey Porter claims that his recent absences from the team's voluntary offseason workouts are not the result of any dissatisfaction with his contract.

    "None of it is right," Porter said, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "None of it."

    Pressed for details on the matter, Porter said, "I'm not going to get in a war of words. None of it is right."

    Porter also suggested that he might stop talking to the media. (We think he'd last about as long as Kramer in The Contest.)

    Steelers coach Bill Cowher also has said that what the Tribune-Review calls "speculation" about Porter's status is off base. "Last week, he went back to spend some time with his family," Cowher told WTAE-TV. "Sometimes, I think a lot of things were getting blown up and taken out of context. But that's his status."

    Sorry, folks, but it's not "speculation." It's fact, leaked anonymously to the media (including us) from folks with knowledge of the situation, but who prefer not to be identified in light of the obvious reality that the player and the team have agreed not to take their squabble public.

    Meanwhile, Porter had on Wednesday "proactive" arthroscopic surgery to fix a knee problem that didn't prevent him from participating in a May 13-15 minicamp, or in ESPN's Battle of the Gridiron Stars during the offseason.

    It's really no wonder Porter ever got shot the first time. The more I read about this guy, the more I hate him.
