You are correct. If they both "went outside", they did not do so innocently. At that point, if it's me, I'm gonna' draw first blood if possible. However, Porter's track record really sucks. Better off in Miami, than here.

Re: Leave it on the field...

From wikipedia:

During his career, Porter has become known for his conflicts with other players, league officials and other teams, as well as a few off-the-field incidents.

Porter was ejected from a 2004 game against the Cleveland Browns after getting into a fistfight with Browns running back William Green. Green was also ejected for this altercation.

Porter is known to bare his belly and taunt other teams during warm-ups, as in the Green altercation.

Before Pittsburgh's 2005 divisional playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts, Porter commented:

"They don't want to just sit there, line up and play football. They want to try to catch you off guard. They don't want to play smash-mouth football, they want to trick you with candy and bring you into their car and lock all the doors. ...They want to catch you substituting. Know what I mean? They don't want to just call a play, get up there and run a play. They want to make you think. They want it to be a thinking game instead of a football game."[1]

After the Indianapolis game, Porter claimed that the referees had unfairly called an interception by Troy Polamalu an incompletion because they favored the Colts, stating:

"The whole world wanted Indy to win so bad, they were going to do whatever they had to do. I mean, look at the O.J. trial"[2] Although Porter was expected to be fined for these comments, he never was, perhaps because the NFL later condemned the official's decision.[3]

In the weeks before Super Bowl XL, Porter was angered by comments made by Seattle Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens. Stevens was quoted as saying that "The story of Jerome Bettis returning to his hometown {Detroit} is heartwarming, but it's going be a sad day when he doesn't walk away with that trophy." Porter responded by saying that comments such as those made by Stevens only helped him to prepare for the upcoming game. Stevens mused at Porter's comments and went on to catch his team's only touchdown, however it was Porter's team that won the game.

Leading up to the Steelers' traditional Super Bowl champions visit to the White House on June 2 2006, Porter generated headlines by suggesting that he would criticize President George W. Bush. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette quoted him as saying: "Yeah, I got something to say to Bush, I'm going to have a swagger when I walk in there, too," Porter said, laughing loudly. "I'm looking forward to it. I have something to tell him, too. I don't like the way things are running right now. I feel like he has to give me some of my money back, so I got something to tell Bush." The Steelers later released a statement saying that Porter had been joking and that he meant no disrespect. At the White House, in an effort to downplay the controversy, he was put as far as possible from the president on the bleachers behind him, in the back row on the right, wearing sunglasses.

Porter was fined every game for wearing yellow gloves with the Steelers. Even though they are the team's color, the league still does not allow his yellow gloves to be worn.

In 2003, he was shot on the left side of his buttocks outside of a bar in Denver, Colorado. He was in town for the Colorado-Colorado State football game.

On September 21 2006, his two dogs (a mastiff and a pit bull) got loose and killed a neighbor's 29-inch miniature horse. [4]

Porter was voted as the second-dirtiest player in the NFL in a 2006 players' poll. [5]

On December 7 2006, following a victory over the Cleveland Browns, Porter used a homosexual slur in his comments against Browns' tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. regarding a late hit penalty he committed against Steelers linebacker James Farrior.

"It was late, that's what faggots do. He's soft. He wants to be tough but he's really soft."[6]

After criticism of the comment as anti-gay, Porter clarified that he "didn't mean to offend anybody but Kellen Winslow."[7]

On March 19, 2007, The Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel reported that Porter was cited in Las Vegas for misdemeanor battery after an altercation at the Palms Casino where he allegedly punched Cincinnatti Bengals OT Levi Jones in the face, cutting open the Bengal. [8]It has also been reported that Levi Jones accused Porter of stealing his jewelry during the altercation.

Re: Leave it on the field...

none of that is really that bad. some of it is kinda funny too.

I think the guys getting DUIs and having their posses try to kill people are a far bigger blight on society and the league.
Who says shameless self promotion is stupid? oh yeah, that was me... Click For Tunes!
