Is there a way to play TF2 without steam?

Steam is the reason I can't play, so i was wondering if there was a way to bypass it >_>

Well, if you want to be a pirate you can play on pirated servers.

How is Steam stopping you from playing, apart from the obvious answer?
I'm an Icon now? When did that happen?

I know personally, I'm not sure if my computer can run the game so in theory I could be downloading the .iso to try to run it on another server to see if I get decent FPS at min. settings. >_> Suggestions? Now that I actually have money for games I'm quite happy to pay for ones as good as this.
Why the hell would you want to stir up more pirates vs. anti-pirate crap? Get a hobby or something, eesh. -WyrmofRust

If i try to run anything through steam(TF2, Ventrilo, HL2, Word Document) it crashes my computer. Thats why I was wondering.

You can create a shortcut to your desktop to run the game (right click on the steam icon and hit create shortcut.)

Not that I know of. I'd love being able to work in Hammer without going through Steam. They make it a pain in the ass.
