    Default Steelers voted no on new CBA

    The Pittsburgh Steelers voted no, citing the rushed nature of the deal -- the Steelers didn't receive a copy until 3 p.m. ET -- and the agreement's inability to address Goodell's role as judge and jury for on-the-field discipline.

    "We felt it was shoved down our throats," Pittsburgh defensive tackle Willie Colon said Thursday.

    Smith declined to discuss Pittsburgh's vote. NFLPA spokesman George Atallah said simply "we're happy to be back playing football."

    Asked if the NFLPA viewed the defending AFC champion's decision to vote against the deal as a protest, Atallah said, "ask (Steelers player representative) Ryan Clark."

    Clark said he wouldn't discuss the outcome of the vote, though both he and Pittsburgh quarterback Charlie Batch acknowledged there were some players on the 90-man roster who were not in favor of the deal

    F------ good for the Steelers!

    At least they stood up for what they believed.

    Nobody should have that much institutional authority over a "game."
