    Tomlin-Harbaugh heated handshake - NFL Videos

    Harbaugh shakes Tomlins hand and congratulates him while Tomlin doesnt say a word and starts walking away and that is when Harbaugh pulls him back and keeps staring in his direction after Tomlin walks away

    Screw Harbaugh, I'm glad Tomlin blew him off. I don't the think the Crybaby Harbargh has many friends around the NFL. He had it coming to him.

    I love it. Tomlin gave John Harbaugh the Jim Harbaugh treatment. Awesome! :D
    Somewhere Jim Schwartz is smiling.

    Didn't look like a big deal to me. But then again, some of the handshakes BB got ripped for was an even lesser deal.

    As much as I dislike John Harbaugh, that was just as much on Tomlin. Tomlin didn't even look at him until Harbaugh pulled him back. Shaking another man's hand without looking at him lacks class.

    John Harbaugh is a dick. Tomlin treated him the way he deserves to be treated.

    Classless move by Tomlin, I'm glad Harbaugh showed some minerals by pulling him back in.

    The whole handshake thing is overblown. You've just spent 3 hours trying to beat the other guy's brains in, then you're going to just let it go and hug? They do it because it's traditional, not because they want to, I can't blame any of them for not doing it with more feeling.

    Showing respect for the other coach is a sign of sportsmanship, doing it after he just beat you is a sign of integrity.

    Been saying that for years. Get rid of the whole silly charade. It stops being meaningful when it's expected. At that point, it's just a formality. Handshakes in a line in college sports is ok. And in the NHL it is a nice tradition for players. But in pro sports for coaches it's not necessary.

    How about stopping for a half a sec, looking him in the eye as he shakes his hand, and saying "good game". I know it's really difficult and takes a lot of effort but I think it someone really applied themselves they just might be able to pull it off.

    And who cares about this ? the media ? the fans ? why fake something for the cameras .? They won a huge div game they werent supposed to win, not to mention there maybe a background story to this. Even without its completely trivial....this is the crap bb has be repeatedly hit with. Lets do a fake hug and say some crap words for showing the media that we are good people...BS

    Football, or any societal activity for that matter, should make society the better for it. If it's going to make us worse we ought to just pack it all in.

    The greeting is symbolic of 2 people being man enough to make a token greeting after a tough-fought battle. I think having that is a good thing, if you can find men to do it, that is.

    Tomlin lazily giving a quick handshake? Ok. He should've done better. But I honestly doubt it's even intentional. A minor grievance.

    Harbaugh's reaction to it? Totally overblown and unnecessary. You don't turn it into some ridiculous staring contest, or whatever he was attempting. Brush it off and move on.

    Staged, expected, perfunctory events do very little. If anything, they make genuine expressions of sportsmanship more rare. The staged, post-game handshake takes everyone off the hook -- no need to do anything actually sportsman-like, the coaches will take care of it after the game with the for-camera choreographed handshake.

    Even if it once had meaning, the post-game handshake has become little more than a media "gotcha" opportunity a handful of times each year when one coach supposedly doesn't do it right.

    Are there really posters who care about the quality of a post-game handshake? Should we ask Steve Grogan to start giving out weekly grades on BB's handshakes?

    As much I hate the Ravens, I have a lot of respect for John Harbaugh (Unlike his douche brother in SF). I thought Tomlin came across like a jacka55...

    I remember reading a great article about the handshake in the NFL, back when the mediots were crying about the way Belichick treated Ratgini. Here it is for those who haven't seen it.

    Actually, you could say that Harbaugh treated Tomlin the way a dick deserves to be treated when he jerked him.

    Lacks class? Lacks integrity? Jeez.

    Oh yeah, I am sure you gents were supporting the Jaguars coach when Tom Coughlin, instead of shaking his hand, gave him an earful after the Gints-Jags game (when the Jags D acted classless and rushed the Gints OL in spite of knowing that the Manning was taking the knee in the last few seconds).

    Who knows what Harbaugh did for Tomlin to keep him at a lower level and not give him the basic respect?

    Respect is something to be earned.

    Wish the fans stop this condescending judgement of another man's actions/in-actions without knowing the full story.

    I agree but if they're going to show respect they should...oh, I don't know...actually show respect toward one another. I could care less whether coaches shake hands or not but what is the point of insincerely shaking hands and being a tool toward one another? Just go your seperate ways and spare the insults to our collective intelligence with the "pretend respect".
