The NFL may fine Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin at least $100,000 and take a draft pick away from the Steelers for being on the field of play and possibly preventing Baltimore's Jacoby Jones from returning a kickoff return for a touchdown during Thursday night's showdown.

According to CBS Sports:

    Steelers coach Mike Tomlin's near-interference with Ravens kick returner Jacoby Jones on Thursday night is the subject of “an aggressive review,” according to a league source and is likely to result in stiff financial penalties for the coach and the team, and perhaps the forfeiture of a draft pick.

Wow!!

I gotta say... I am losing interest in the NFL. It is not gone, but diminishing for sure.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

You have to watch the tape Lando....it was pretty blatant and he not only almost obstructed a player, he almost bumped into one of the Line Judges.  Not something the league can just ignore.

Oh, I quite agree Chief!  I saw it when it happened and in multiple replays.  Something needs to be done and it needs to be significant. 

It's just that I am becoming jaded towards sports in general, I guess.
