Twitter users, Steelers fans sound off on Le’Veon Bell’s defiance
So long as the internet exists, mockery will occur, even in the angriest of times during the sports calendar.
Such was the case in Pittsburgh when Twitter became a source of comic relief for Steelers fans enraged by Le’Veon Bell’s holdout.
Steelers offensive lineman Ramon Foster got the fun going by posting this “Where’s Le’Waldo” photo.

The guys at Benstonium used the Colin Kaepernick Nike ad as a launching point for this effort.

That includes comedian David Spade.
Hey @LeVeonBell , I know this is a stressful time for you but as I’m sure you heard I drafted you. So I cant have this right now. I need you to get in the game. I feel like this money convo can wait till Jan. I can float you whatever but let’s just get on that field thanks bud

This may not be precisely true, but that nighttime practice scene in the dark from “Remember the Titans” leaps to mind.

What was I doing bothering to interview Maurkice Pouncey when I could’ve been looking for that lady in the Strip District?! I was robbing myself and you, the readers. That one is on me. I feel shame.
