SHORT AND SWEET!
At first I shook my head!
And then I thought about it.
Smokey has been in trouble numerous times, several of which were not made public........he's an idiot!
He is in his last contract year and the Steelers wouldn't have kept him after the season was over.
He is suspended for the first four games of the season.
The Steelers methodology has been proven time and time again.
In the face of numerous stupid actions on the part of Steelers players recently, a message needed to be sent "THIS ISN'T CINCINNATI"
The Steelers get a 5th round pick for a guy who was going to contribute for 3/4 of one season at best.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
The Steelers demonstrate the commitment to integrity which lead to their superiority in an organization (The NFL) which is devoid of integrity!
I'M PROUD TO BE A STEELER FAN TODAY!
