  • Who is the dirtiest player in the league?

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...nfls-dirtiest/

    A Sports Illustrated poll of NFL players has found that Hines Ward is considered by his colleagues to be the dirtiest player in the league, with Albert Haynesworth and Joey Porter tied for second.

    The question, "Who is the dirtiest player in the league?'' was asked of 296 players during training camp this summer, and Ward, the Steelers' wide receiver, got 11.6 percent of the vote, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

    Haynesworth, the Redskins defensive tackle who as a Tennessee Titan in 2006 received a five-game suspension for stepping on the helmetless head of Cowboys center Andre Gurode, got 6 percent of the vote. Porter, the Dolphins' linebacker, also got 6 percent.

    Rounding out the Top 5 (or should it be Bottom 5?) are Bengals safety Roy Williams, who got 5.1 percent of the vote, and Titans center Kevin Mawae, with 4.6% percent.

    It is definitely Hines Ward. He gets all this credit for blocking, but all he does is blow people up with sucker hits. Just ask Keith Rivers.

      As this video clearly shows, Ward hit Rivers during play when Rivers was the closest defender to the ball carrier. Yeah, that's so dirty.

        If a defender put a hit on an offensive player like Hines does to defenders, it would be fine. But since Ward does it, it's dirty because he's an offensive player? I don't get it.

          yea going helmet to helmet on unsuspecting players, most of the blocks are pointless and doesnt involve the play

                  I still don't see how a WR blocking a Lb is dirty? And don't say well he wasn't looking, so it makes it dirty.

                  If Rivers never broke his jaw, nothing would be made of this other than a good block. If Ward gave him a shot to the knees then yeah I would say its dirty. But isn't that wat the league wants now, go low instead of high?

                      THere was no helmet to helmet contact, it was shoulder to helmet. Ward lowered his shoulder, and Ward's helmet collided with Rivers shoulder pad. How else do you want a WR to block?

                      Also there are more dirtier players than if you want helmet to helmet, a few safeties in the league just want to do that all day, lead with their head.

                          He's been known to be dirty in piles, chop block a lot, poke eyes... you know, the dirty stuff.

                            I concur. With all the BS spewed about protecting the players, I am always baffled by the lack of crackdown on the safeties banging heads with any ballcarrier as he's hitting the ground. Pick a safety: anoint him as dirtiest player.

                              That's not dirty, that's just being a lineman.
