SHARE Hines Ward hit on Keith Rivers was ... well, just watch the video

The Steelers’ Hines Ward has done it again. Despite $15,000 in fines for unnecessary roughness calls the past two games, Ward took advantage of the opportunity to level the Bengals’ Keith Rivers with a shot that effectively looks to have ended the rookie linebacker’s season.

Watch the video here:

Ward told the Post-Gazette, “”It was a clean hit. I didn’t stand over the guy or anything. I just celebrated, the same as a guy does when he gets a sack.”

One Faniq.com blogger sums it up his emotions: “Thus, Hines Ward is one of my favorite players in the NFL.”

What do you think? Excessive or warranted?
