Joey Porter will be fined for being on the field last night, but his antics helped his team win the game
When you hear the term Steeler for LIFE, Joey Porter has to come to mind. The Steelers former linebacker was right in the middle of the issue going on last night between the Bengals and the Steelers. Porter was talking trash more than likely to Adam Pac Man Jones which made him lunge at the former Pro Bowl linebacker. According to Ian Rapoport, the referees allowed Joey Porter to be on the field because he was concerned with Antonio Brown.

Well now, Porter is facing a suspension, and could be fined for being on the field. Because he was on the field, I do not think Pac Man should have been penalized. At the end of the day, the NFL should have not allowed a penalty like that to be the deciding factor.
