Yeah I said it. Even though the bias mainstream sports media won't. Hines Ward is a dirty player. He is a headhunter who likes to think he is tough because he can block someone when they aren't looking. That really makes him a tough guy. He cries about getting fined when he is doing blatant helmet to helmet hits like he did to Keith Rivers.
He didn't break Rivers jaw with his arm, but his helmet, but you will see the media make all type of excuses for him:
"He is just playing hard"
"He is just a competitor"
"He is a warrior"
No! The proper term for Ward is a:
"Cheap shot artist"
The thing that bothers more than anything else is that he celebrates injuring other players. If any other wide receiver in the league would do that they would be buried, but not Ward he gets a free pass. Show me a block where he takes someone out going face to face. He should be fined and suspended because if that was Chad Johnson that is what would have happened. Don't be blinded I see the truth and the truth is Hines Ward on the field is a classless individual who smiles at injuring players. If I had a son I would much rather him wear a Terrell Owens jersey than Hines Ward one. The reason being you can teach a child when to close his mouth but his character has to come from within. When it comes to character on the field Ward has none.
