Pittsburgh Steelers running back Chris Rainey has just been fired from the team for allegedly attacking his girlfriend this morning in Florida, TMZ has learned. Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert tells us, “Chris Rainey’s actions this morning were extremely disappointing. Under the circumstances and due to this conduct, Chris will no longer be a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers.”
I have to say that I’m pretty pleased to hear about this. The Steelers seemed to act pretty quickly here and we’re pretty happy about the strict effort the organization has put forth. Most time athletes seem to get away with way too much. Hopefully going forward if other players try to pull this crap in the future, teams will just get rid of the bad apples.
