I would like to take this time to wish a Happy 50th Birthday to one of the most feared linebackers to ever sport the black-n-gold attire..”Greg Lloyd”!

“I wasn’t hired for my disposition”..the words printed on the back of a t-shirt he had made to let the NFL and opposing players know that for 60 minutes..it was not going to be a stroll in the park for them. An attitude adopted by his successor, James Harrison today..both of which have expressed their dislike for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

Here are a couple of Lloyd’s quotes to document his hatred towards Goodell:


” Thor”? Nice! The only differences being Goodell is a redhead..not a blond. And he’s more of a dictator than a czar.


“Wow”! Candor at its finest. You see the similarity between Lloyd and Harrison now? No loss for choice words..that’s for sure. Even on camera, Lloyd has had no problems letting one go no matter what others may think.

Check this video out:

” F***ing”..that is all.

Another video from “Forgotten Badasses” is only have right. Because Lloyd was definitely was a badass on the field..but never forgotten by the Steelers organization and fanbase. *Please forgive typo on YouTube page*

So Happy Birthday, Greg Lloyd! You gave us all years of enjoyment watching you play the game of professional football.
