Found November 20, 2012 on Down and Distance:

After the Baltimore Ravens defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, Ravens running back Ray Rice was photographed using the Steelers trademark “Terrible Towel” as a rag on his head. Apparently, Steelers linebacker LaMarr Woodley did not appreciate Rice’s use of the towel: Woodley’s reference to LenDale White and TJ Houshandzadeh are other incidents in which other players have disrespected the Terrible Towel. In 2005, Houshmandzadeh used a Terrible Towel to wipe his cleats during a game in which his team, the Cincinnati Bengals, beat the Steelers 38-31 at Heinz Field. The Bengals made the playoffs but were bounced by the Steelers 31-17 in the wild card playoff game. In 2008, then-Tennessee Titans running back White was seen stomping on the towel during the Titans defeat of the Steelers.  The Steelers had the last laugh, winning the Super Bowl that season. Woodley will have the opportunity to re-address Rice later this season when the Steelers and Ravens meet again, however, the defense might not have the final say in the Steelers winning this game, given their dire situation at quarterback. Known as a “rally” towel, over $3 million have been raised for the Allegheny Valley School in Pennsylvania, which cares for people with mental and physical disabilities. The Terrible Towel is credited with being the first rally towel and has spawned towels for other teams.     Follow us on Twitter @DownandDistance Down and Distance Columnist - Shane Richardson @Shaner021The post LaMarr Woodley to Ray Rice: Don’t Disrespect the Terrible Towel appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
