He can't be serious.
Wow, all we have to do is ask and we can get some money back ? Nice
I'm sure George Bush cares less about the words coming out of Joey Porter's big mouth than I do. And that's hard to do.
Why is it that people we pay to entertain us think their opinion matters? He needs to have a little respect for the tradition of these championship visits and for the office of the white house. Oh, I forgot who we're talking about. No wonder someone shot this guy in the ass.
While I certainly agree with your overall sentiment, I can answer your first question.
People who entertain us are powerful opinion leaders. If it's Jordan selling sneakers, Tiger selling drivers, or Jeter selling baseball gloves, it's clear that their opinion matters to many of us. Muhammad Ali certainly made his politics known and inspired many people to protest against the war in Vietnam. The biggest difference here however is Porter is nowhere near a Jordan, Tiger, Jeter or Ali.
If Jordan tells me sneakers make him play well, I believe him because he plays well. Ali's politics, I'll keep my politics out and not agree or disagree, were informed and articulated. And I don't think that pop-star opinions sway the general public as much as they or the media think.
They have however created multi billion dollar industry's out of pop stars and athletes. In this day and age where most people worry about spending their money wisely, many still purchase products that are endorsed by these celebrities even if they are more expensive than non-endorsed products of equivalent quality. That speaks volumes.
According to 24, all you need to do is call the White House and ask to speak with the President. At least it works that way for Miles.
I think it says something about Joey that of all the things he could say to the President the one thing he wants to do is ask for money back. If I were speaking to Bush there are A LOT of things I'd want to say to him but asking for money back would not be the first. (Sorry for the rant Nut.)
I like Porter's attitude and the way he plays the game. I would take him as 55's replacement in a heartbeat.
Say it like it is , Joey, you're speaking for many of us.
Here is Porter showing how he farts through his mouth.
This thread shuld be moved to the general or political forum before the wacko's over there venture over here.
I always love it when they do that.
My gut tells me that a guy like Porter stands to do much more harm than good to the causes he claims to support.
So the way I see it, those who see things the way Porter does would do well to knock some sense into him, and those who disagree with him should be encouraging him to "speak his mind".
Tell you the kind of ORg the Steelers are they rule the world they have a dynasty going this vists are to honor the team and get out no mater who is Prez maybe they should watch some true pros that have been their 3 times!!! Joey won't be back that is for sure.
I suppose the classless have to have a spokesperson- he's yours.
You guys had your chance to speak a back in 2000 and 2004.
Joey Porter is making 3.85 million dollars this year, I highly doubt he speaks for you, fool. Considering he is the rich who you say gets all the tax breaks.
Joey Porter has no class.
Joey Porter is always flapping his gums about something..
71% at last count.
TIME TO CLOSE AND MOVE THIS STUPID POLITICAL THREAD.
Is there a mods in the house?
You're making millions. He cut your taxes, ****head.
Those three Bentleys with the Spinnas were just what the economy needed.
wouldn't it be great if the secret service put him in his place, apparently after spouting off to the NFL after the colts game he feels he can tell the president what to do too
This is the same guy who said the officials were outright cheating to try and hand the game to the Colts. Oh that's right, they were. Never mind.
Since when does a man not have the right to a dissenting opinion?
wow...I political baiting thread great.
Porter wasn't one of my favorite Steelers before this. He now is.
This thread should be closed and moved. We even have trolls posting stupid comments.
The fact that Porter dislikes Bush means I have a reason to respect the Pittsburgh linebacker.
You do realize what he is talking about is more tax cuts, glad to see you have finally come around, though.
I dont care what he's talking about. People have the right to hate this presidential fraud for one of many reasons. My dislike for him is based on things like the environment, his blatant racism, and his urination on the Constitution.
I wasn't born in this country, and to someone who had to be naturalized here, the US Constitution is amazing. Maybe you don't realize it since you grew up with it, but if you didn't, you'd realize what this guy is doing to this great document.
Please stop this Political bashing...Cant someone move this thread?
