I really don’t like Hines Ward. It kind of is a requirement being a Ravens fan this year, but this guy has ruined players’ seasons (maybe even careers) with his crappy cheap-shot blocks that the ref doesn’t see. He’s like one of those kids in rec basketball who trips you on purpose when the refs are checking the book for team fouls. Keith Rivers broke his jaw from one of Ward’s blocks, and was having a defensive rookie of the year worthy season. In the first game vs the Ravens, Ward was fined $5,000 but did not get called for a penalty. After the block that recieved the fine, the Steelers drove for a TD that made the score eventually be tied, and the game go into overtime.
All the Ravens players have Ward as their target, and not that I’m encouraging injury, but if Hines Ward wanted to chop some wood, it could be great for him.
