Ray Rice was spotted with a Terrible Towel draped over his head after the Baltimore Ravens defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night, and Pittsburgh linebacker LaMarr Woodley is not happy about it. Woodley apparently felt it was disrespectful of Rice, and he took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to warn him about it and remind everyone about two players who have done it in the past. Bad idea rayjust ask lendale white and tj whosyourmama twitter.com/LaMarrWoodley/… — LaMarr Woodley (@LaMarrWoodley) November 20, 2012 For those who are wondering, Around the League reminded us that Lendale White stomped on a Terrible Towel in 2008 while T.J. Houshmandzadeh used one to clean his cleats back in 2005. Woodley was still in college for the Housmandzadeh incident, but he is apparently well-read in Terrible Towel history. In this particular photo, Rice was simply walking to the locker room. Perhaps he needed a towel after a hard-fought game and that’s all that was available. In any event, it obviously rubbed Woodley the wrong way. “If you’re not a Steelers fan, don’t put your hands on a terrible towel,” the sixth-year linebacker also wrote on Monday night. As shirts like this one Terrell Suggs wore and comments like this one that Steelers safety Ryan Clark made remind us, there is no love lost between these two division rivals. Woodley’s tweet simply adds fuel to a fire that has been blazing for years.
