Report: NFL Fines Mike Tomlin $25,000 For Criticizing Officiating

posted by Cap'n Tony | @RadioOnTheTony - 

At 2-2-1 the Steelers currently find themselves—and at this point I am going to tell Pittsburgh fans to have a terrible towel handy—tied with the Cleveland Browns for last place in the AFC North.

Yeah, use that towel to clean up those tears or cookies you just tossed.

And, I guess when you are wrong about as many things as head coach Mike Tomlin has been on the field, you can’t expect him to be much better off the field.

Which is why it’s not surprising that, earlier this week, he said that he didn’t expect the league to fine him for calling the quality of officiating a “joke” after Sunday’s victory over Atlanta.

Yeah, he was wrong again as the league fined Tomlin $25,000 yesterday.

“We’ve got to get better as a National Football League,” Tomlin said in his postgame interview. “Man, these penalties are costing people games and jobs. We’ve got to get them correct. And so I’m pissed about it, to be quite honest with you. But that’s all I’m going to say on it.”

Yeah, he could have kept going.

I mean, in for a penny, in for a pound.
