    I feel the same way. I don't know if they were joking with him or what,but I always thought Foote was viewed as a good teamate.
    Isn't playing for the Lions punishment enough? We then have to mock him in his own building? I thought this was in poor taste by the Steelers. I hold out hope that it was just guys being guys and everyone had a big laugh at the end.

    Foote note
    Lions linebacker Larry Foote was credited for seven tackles but largely was not a factor in the game. Still, the Steelers had nothing but kind words for him afterward. He was their teammate for seven seasons and shared in their Super Bowl successes in the 2005 and '08 seasons before signing with Detroit as a free agent in the offseason.

    "He's always a Steeler," wide receiver Hines Ward said. "He's welcome whenever. ... Last night, a couple of guys went to his house and ate dinner with his family and kids. We still love Foote. It's unfortunate things couldn't work out so he could be with this organization."

    Steelers linebacker James Harrison remembered Foote in a different way. He did the Foote stomp after sacking Lions quarterback Daunte Culpepper in the second quarter. When Foote would get a sack with the Steelers, he would stomp the ground and grind his foot as if he were squashing a bug.

    "Yep, that was for Foote," Harrison said.

    Foote has been something of an iron man during his career, making his 85th consecutive start yesterday. That ranks fourth among active linebackers in that category.

    Very Cool. I'm glad we were remembering Foote and not mocking him. I actually liked the guy so until I read this article I was bothered by it.

    I dont think Larry is gonna lose sleep over it, I'm sure it was in good fun. I did, however, hear Ryan Clark on Sirius last week and according to him, Foote has been kind of a dick since he left. Appearantly he doesnt answer texts or return phone calls to his old teamates.

    Granted, that doesnt make a "football player" (and it's probably more distracting than anything), but you would think Foote made some strong friendships winning 2 SB's in the Burgh.

    I'm sure he wasnt all innocent yesterday...you know he was running his yapper out there all day!

    Naw I think that is the kind of guy Larry is. He is going to talk some **** and the Steelers are going to talk some ****. If it was any other way then I would guess there was some bad blood. Like the article said he had the boys over for supper. After the game Larry was in the STEELERS locker room in street clothes which is unheard of. I guess he was wearing Redwings **** tho. I will try not to hold it against him

    James Harrison said he did it because he knew Foote would get a kick out of it. He didn't do it to hurt anyone's feelings

    James is such a sensitive guy.
    "The brotherhood that the Steelers have, their way of doing business, their way of playing football, spans decades. Their way of building teams that do not blink and players that do not shrink, well, there is nothing come-lately about it."

    I figured someone would point this out. Harrison't foote stomp wasn't mocking, it was just paying respect to a former teamate who was playing on the Lions.

    I think it was cool as well. Larry was never spectacular, but always solid and he helped win 2 Super Bowls. Glad to see they are paying him some respect.

    If our D was playing lights out I wouldn't mind "the Stomp" or "cradling the baby", but we've been pretty sorry. Unless we're dominating I think the players should be ashamed of themselves....I know, I know it's all in fun, but those are just the thoughts going through my head when I see that stuff.
