Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell took to Twitter Monday night to challenge retired safety Ryan Clark's recent criticism of Bell's teammate wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Bell directed a tweet at Clark, who is now an ESPN analyst and criticized Brown for being "selfish" after a sideline incident during last week's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Back came a barrage of tweets from Clark, later calling Bell "sensitive." The exchange went on, Bell attacking Clark for what he called a "pub stunt" and Clark responding by poking fun at Bell's rap songs and running style on the field.

Finally, Clark's former teammate cornerback Ike Taylor came in to break up the fight and Clark offered Bell tweet of peace. Taylor is now an NFL Network analyst.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
