Hines Ward

You MIGHT Be the Father!

Former NFL star Hines Ward ... come on dooooooown ... it's time to play ARE YOU THE FATHER???

A woman named Melanie Smith filed a lawsuit in Georgia this month ... claiming the former Pittsburgh Steeler is the biological father of her 1-year-old daughter.

According to docs, Melanie wants Hines to admit he fathered the kid -- and if he refuses, she wants a judge to order a blood test in order to establish paternity.

The maybe baby mama is also asking Hines to start coughing up child support ... if it's determined the child is actually his.

A judge has yet to rule.

FYI -- Hines already has one other kid, with his ex-wife Simone.

Take the paternity test. If you are the father, pay for it. If you aren't, sure the crap out of this woman for making false claims.

This is 2012 when parentage can be 99.98% proven. Why broadcast to the world that you're a piece of sh1t. My question is, in the atmosphere of more rights to women--under the guise of "equality". Why is the MAN always required to fork over the money to support a kid. The presumption is some how it's HIS FAULT. The woman is the the hapless, innocent, "victim". I absolutely believe that a man should assume a financial responsibly in the support his child, but not the TOTAL responsibility.
You'll NEVER hear that argument from WAM (Women Against Men)

Breeding into wealth is a career goal for many women (see Housewives of..). I don't blame gold diggers - most men get stupid when deep inside the p*ssy. However, I also admire Charlie Sheen for being smart and just paying for "call girls" and respect Gabriel Aubry for playing the same game - and winning.

This is 2012 where parentage can be 99.98% authenticated, why broadcast to the world that you're a puce of sh1t.
However, as women are increasing gaining more rights and privileges over men under the guise of "equal rights" at some point the issue of discrimination within the courts pertaining to financial responsibility should be address and challenged.
THE QUESTION: Why should men be forced to bear the FULL financial responsibility for their child. The twisted presumption is that women are hapless, innocent victims and it's the MAN'S fault that she was impregnated. Those bitches choose not to spread their legs--or whatever--not take birth control with the intent of having a baby--sans father--and that man or welfare will bankroll them for life. Of course I believe that men should pay a responsible PORTION for the child's support and the WOMAN should be expected to pay a responsible PORTION as well.
Of course there are those situation where the woman was just jacked by a guy with whom she was engaged in a RELATIONSHIP or marriage and that's fvcked up. Even at that there is still the issue of personal responsibility in the case of those who aren't married.---YES I SAID MARRIED.

Athletes, when are they going to get it?some of these women are out for one thing only, their money. I'm from West Africa, and there is a saying, if you are famous you must stay away from two things, alcohol and women because these two things can bring your downfall.

There are ways to make sure that you will not be the babies daddy. Get neuter and have all the sex that you want without a woman knocking at your banks door. If his is the babies daddy it is his own doing. Be responsible!

Why a blood test? DNA is done with a simple cheek swab.
