PostSubject: Roethlisberger opens up on Bengals rivalry   Fri Jul 29, 2016 3:30 pm

By Mark Kaboly

The Steelers don't like the Bengals, and the Bengals don't like the Steelers.

That was clearly established last year when the two teams combined for well over $200,000 in fines during their last two meetings, including the Steelers' wild-card playoff win at Paul Brown Stadium.

Animosity, however, shouldn't be associated with dirty play.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said on Friday during a one-on-one interview with the Tribune-Review that he's tired of the cheap and dirty play that littered the rivalry a year ago.

“I think it can get out of control and it did at times,” Roethlisberger said. “I am out there and you see all the stuff going on under the piles. It is one thing to talk a little trash and another thing to say some of the things that are being said. The referees have to keep it under control, but we as players have to be better and go play on both sides.”

There were numerous fights between players; there were fines, suspensions, accusations, trash talking and coaches getting into altercations that overshadowed what has turned into one of the best rivalries in the league.

Roethlisberger wants it to morph now into a clean rivalry.

UUUH Wally. The link goes to a story about Ben and drug testing. I will say this. As long as Burfict and Jones are running the defense (and they are) and Marvin Lewis does nothing this rivalry will remain ugly.
