    Lost in the turquoise troposphere high above “Opening Day” at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Daniel M. Rooney, the world’s premiere Irish-Catholic Cultural Marxist apostate, seethes with aberrant enchantment whilst peering down through gold-ensconced binoculars at the squalid, nacho-stained throngs of white, fundamentally-inebriated, needle-pricked, face-painting, tattooed, corpulent, racially-obtuse, Terrible Towel-waving Afro-centrists emitting 140-decible shrieks of unbridled jubilee for one of the elderly cretin’s most vile creations: The 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers…

    [​IMG] CAPTION: Rastafarian Rooney Poses Posterior to Petite Presidential P-ssy

    Through the focused lenses of the viewing instrument, Rooney’s gaunt, girlish fingers tally the white athletes that comprise the Steelers’ “Starting 22” as he gingerly defecates the previous evening’s dinner of caviar and “Truffles à La Marx” into a 14-karat silver bed pan positioned beneath his hind quarters. The spindly index, middle, ring, and pinky fingers of the glorified reanimated corpse reveal the lowly sum of pale-faced starters…

    OFFENSIVE STARTERS:
    QB - Ben Roethlisberger
    RG - David DeCastro
    TE - Heath Miller

    DEFENSIVE STARTERS:
    DE – Brett Keisel

    White offensive back-ups that could possibly make the 53-man roster surprisingly include white QB’s Landri Jones and Bruce Gradkowski, TE’s Matt Speath and David Paulsen, and lineman John Malecki and Joe Madsen. White 3[SUP]rd[/SUP] stringers that will most certainly be cut include: OL Mike Farrell, OL Mike Golic Jr., OL Nik Embernate, and OL Joe Long…

    White defensive back-ups include…well, no one besides the permanently-cut/waived/released safety/waterboy/equipment manager, Ross Ventrone (who will be cut, of course), brother of long-time, similarly-fated Patriot “junkyard dog” Ray Ventrone….

    CAPTION: Ross Ventrone Enjoys “Happier Times” Amongst His Own People

    Punter Drew Butler, kicker Shaun Suisham, and long-snapper Greg Warren are locks to add three additional white faces to this chocolate-drizzled roster.

    The saddest aspect of the 2013 installment of this Black Supremacist Corporation is that 4 white starters, 4-5 white back-ups on offense, and 3 “specialists” is an astounding uptick in white players when compared to the past 2-3 seasons in which their total count of white athletes reached an “All-Time NFL Record Low” 7-8 overall players. But, hey, who’s cares about counting “black and white” when they’re all wearing “black and gold!”

    Nice preview. You had me in stitches with your tales of caste maggot, Cryptkeeper look-a-like Dan Rooney.

    The only place I disagree is I believe Landry Jones will make the team. They invested a high enough draft pick plus they'll have to groom a successor for Big Ben eventually. They know they need a White man to lead their on-field plantation, they'll just never admit it.

    4 White guys starting looks good compared to the black Bucs' 3 pale faces. :smash:

    Edit to add: I just noticed that cbs sports lists Ventrone as a corner back. Hell, where Rooney will hopefully be sooner rather than later, truly would have to freeze over for Ross to make this squad.

    Landry Jones will probably be the Steelers 3rd string QB this year. In future years he will probably be a good backup for the Steelers. He could even develop into a quality NFL starter down the road.

    The sports media has been talking him down but I think he has good potential.

    Looks like Grandpa Burress, who was washed up about five years ago, has finally used up his nine lives in the NFL. No showing off his 2 inch vertical jump and 5.25 40 speed for Pittsburgh Crawfords fans this year. From Weenieworld:


    Plaxico Burress suffered a torn rotator cuff in his shoulder during Thursday's camp practice, and is likely done for the year. Because Burress is 36 years old now, it's a career-threatening injury. Plax had been running behind Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders, Markus Wheaton, and Jerricho Cotchery in Steelers camp. He finished 2012 with three catches for 42 yards and one touchdown in three appearances. Outside of red-zone packages, Burress was not slated for a large role in Pittsburgh's 2013 offense.

    And it just gets worse for the Crawfords. Bell was the one and only RB drafted this year who was being counted on to be a heavy duty feature back. From Weenieworld:

    CBS' Jason La Canfora reports doctors are "hopeful" Le'Veon Bell (Lisfranc) can heal without surgery, but that he'll be sidelined 6-8 weeks. ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Bell is expected to miss at least six weeks. That has Bell returning some time after the Steelers' Week 5 bye, and perhaps quite later. He's shaping up as a candidate for I.R./designated to return. Bell would be eligible to return from short-term I.R. in Week 9, which is 75 days from today. The news wrecks the Steelers' plan to remake their rushing attack, and leaves them with the unappealing trio of Isaac Redman, Jonathan Dwyer and La'Rod Stephens-Howling. It's unclear whom the leader of the committee will be, but we'll get some clues in Saturday's regular season dress rehearsal.

    this runningback draft class was just pathetic, its getting worse every year. Reports on Montee Ball haven't been great either. He is healthy, but he can't pass protect to save his life. Will this give Jacob Hester a chance.....Nope, talks of just putting overrated Slowshon Moreno in there.

    As far as the Steelers, Redman has proven to be mediocre, Dwyer is a dough boy and long hyphenated spider leg back is just a 3rd down guy. Dwyer was put at halfback despite running slow and lining up at fullback in the traditional triple option offense, although at g-tech they called it "b-back", its the same position guys like Kyle Eckel ran from and did well, yet they didn't get the opportunity to be tailbacks in the NFL. Fullback in name only makes Whites blockers in the NFL, when they spent a majority of college running, and if they weren't running they pretended to have the ball and crashed into the line. All they said about Dwyer was "not used to lining up at the typical tailback length under center"

    This team just keeps getting blacker and blacker. If these morons had any sense they would have tried to obtain Gerhart and they would have had a solid 1,000 yard back for years to come. Instead they wanted to go with the plodding Mendenhall who is always injured and inconsistent.

    I've posted this a couple of times before, and I will again: Rex Burkhead is the best all-around rookie running back this year. He's a superb athlete, can pass protect and receive, and is an excellent runner with super-quick feet and decisive moves. Yet what are the odds that he'll ever get a chance to run with the ball more than, say, Brian Leonard has? Slim barring an array of injuries. In fact, after the plodding fringe player Dan Heron had a good second preseason game, the latest media conjecture is whether Burkhead will even beat out Herron for Cincy's final tailback spot. And so it goes. . .

    Not really news of any sort, but Thrashen's favorite chubby Samoan is getting a "haircut for charity". Did you know his hair is insured for a million bucks? :crazy:

    Congratulations to the Pittsburgh Crawfords DWFs, as according to a study, they take losses harder than the fans of any other NFL team. Considering the level of competition to win this award, this is quite an achievement:

    This is funny. The study also says Steeler fans are happier than any others after a win.

    By the way, today I was in a Wal Mart store in Tennessee. I saw a white man around 30 years old wearing a Steeler jersey, number 43.

    Who knows how accurate the claims of Mike Meriweather's lawsuit are, but one can easily imagine his DWF co-workers -- who dedicate a large portion of their lives to rooting on their beloved, coal black Steelers -- trembling in fear of an aging black former linebacker.

    BTW, I remember Meriweather mainly for holding out for an entire season (1988) after having a good year, one of the few NFL players who has done so. He eventually returned to the league with the Vikings in 1989 after the Steelers traded him but he never came close to duplicating his one and only successful season of 1987.

    Former Steeler Mike Merriweather sues Meadows casino

    by Rich Lord

    Saying he was harassed, stripped of earnings and ultimately sacked from a job at the The Meadows Racetrack and Casino because he is big and black, former Steelers linebacker Michael L. Merriweather filed a lawsuit this week alleging disparate treatment and violations of human relations and wage laws.

    Mr. Merriweather, 53, now of Stockton, Calif., was hired by The Meadows in April 2011 as director of sports marketing, according to the complaint filed in U.S. District Court. His job was to promote blackjack tournaments, bowling and Steelers-themed “Black and Gold” events, according to the complaint by attorney Emily E. Town. He was to be paid a salary plus commissions.

    Though he maintained a professional demeanor, “he was a large, obviously fit, black male who was known to have played in professional football, and white co-workers often acted as if they feared him,” according to the complaint. White managers made comments like, “I don’t want him to beat me up,” and “I don’t want to get him mad,” according to the complaint. It noted that Mr. Merriweather is an ordained minister and is certified as an anger management facilitator.

    A white superior repeatedly failed to properly code some clients’ play at The Meadows, costing Mr. Merriweather commissions, according to the complaint. He brought his concerns to the general manager. Eventually, a group of white managers stopped responding to the former linebacker’s emails and didn’t invite him to meetings or greet him in the hallways, the lawsuit alleged.

    A superior eliminated Mr. Merriweather’s office and told him to work in a common area, the lawsuit indicated, and in January 2012 he was fired.

    Apparently there was a slip up of some sort in Pittsburgs front office and they actually added a real white man, Brian Arnfelt, who plays defense, yes defense, to the active roster on December 14. He will of course be inactive today, but still an actual rookie white player on defense, plus a second white man starting on the O-line in Cody Wallace, will wonders never cease.

    Referendum, I remember seeing Arnfelt with the Steelers during the pre-season. I remember thinking that I must’ve been mistaken and that he was merely some incredibly light-skinned black. He wore #69 back in August…

    CAPTION: Arnfelt During Pre-Season

    In the past 10 seasons, I believe the only white defenders to ever make the Steelers’ active 53-man roster were DE Aaron Smith, DE Travis Kirschke, DT Chris Hoke, DE Brett Keisel, and special teams LB’s Clint Kreiwaldt and Patrick Bailey.

    The only white DB I can remember was the little-used Scott Sheilds in the late 1990’s. Also during that era, defensive lineman Jeremy Staat (who was a 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] round pick) and Mike Vrabel (3[SUP]rd[/SUP] rounder) wasted away as reserves.

    Tomlin and Colbert must think Danny's last name indicates his race. Poor Danny, looks like any hopes he had of playing in the NFL are over:

    Steelers signed WR Danny Coale to a reserve/future contract. A 2012 fifth-round pick of the Cowboys, Coale's Big D career never got off the ground because of foot and ACL injuries. A well-built slot prospect at 6-foot-0, 201 pounds, Coale will have a shot at a roster spot if he's finally healthy.

    Every white boy is a slot prospect lol doesnt matter if the guy is 6'5 220! I despise the steelers but maybe with their "Smurf" receiving corps will allow Danny to stand out

    I admire the positive sentiment, and hope that Mr. Coale is given a legitimate shot, but I doubt it. On black supremacist rosters, it doesn't matter how superior the cracka's performance is. Look at Danny Woodhead during his days with the Jets, every practice was the "Danny Woodhead show", yet he didn't sniff the field except for some WSTD duty. I'll bet that the Cincinnati Bengals practices this year were some variation on the "Rex Burkhead show" every week, yet he was rarely ever even activated come gametime.

    wow I never knew their receivers were that small, 5'10 and 5'11, actually averaged sized imo but would be call smurfs if they were White, but weighing in at around 180, a White wr wouldn't get a shot. Welker is 5'9 and 190, so more bulk 10 pounds more and being slightly shorter. Then again they have DeSean Jackson who is like 170 pounds, if he were White they would say "but he would get crushed".

    The same thing is going on with Manziel and Bridgewater, Manziel is 6 ft and 205, Bridgewater is 6'2 and 1/2 207 pounds and less mobile and takes more hits, yet they say Manziel is going to get crushed.

    back to the Steelers, Crotchery is the only one who would be taller, 1 inch taller and about the same weight, and on the downside of his career.

    Best case, and I am trying to be optimistic , is that he is the 4th wideout, maybe a 2 to 300 yards receiving?
