Steelers Were The Lone Team To Vote Against New CBA

    When the new Collective Bargaining agreement was ratified on Thursday, all but one team voted yes. "We voted no," offensive tackle Willie Colon told Ralph Paulk of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "At the time of our discussions, I don't think there was a definite answer (on HGH testing)," said quarterback Charlie Batch, a member of the NFLPA executive committee. "There was a level of uncertainty because a lot of guys didn't know what they were signing up for," linebacker Lawrence Timmons said. "We had a short time limit to sign everything, so I feel we were rushed." "I think we gave in some places we would like to win," said Steelers union rep Ryan Clark, who Wednesday cast doubt whether the union would ratify the agreement. "They (owners) got to keep some of the things they wanted to keep. They got to get more money back (53 percent to 47 percent revenue split), but that's the tug of war you have with negotiations."

    Screw the Steelers. If their attitudes weren't so bad they wouldn't have so many problems.

    No matter what they say we know it is because some of their players like to take cheap shots and they are tired of getting fined because of it.
