Folks, if anyone ever refers to me a “drunk overweight guy” please just kill me.
Sucker shot? He looked him dead in the eye before headbutting him.
Different strokes for different folks, I suppose. Personally, it’s pretty much one of my life goals.
Considering the fact that I’m currently as sober as a judge and 175 lbs., I’m guessing that I’ve got my work cut out for me.
Not just difficult to beat when they are at home with a large lead. Up to last night a better word was IMPOSSIBLE to beat. I read on PFT that their record at home with a 14 pt lead was 220-0-2. So yeah, that was a once in a lifetime event.
BTW- For all the fun we like to make about Mike Tomlin, he isn't a "bad" HC. You don't have the kind of success the steelers have had and be a "bad" HC. He simply doesn't fare well when you are comparing him to BB and the Pats. But relative to the rest of the NFL universe, he's done pretty well.
I think of him as a big picture guy who has run a good program for a lot of years. He'd improve a number of franchises if he led their teams. What he isn't is a premier x's and O's guy. Instead he' one who lets his coordinators run the game.
On the other hand, if I were a Steeler fan, I'd be angry that he's wasting perhaps one of the best rosters in the league the past few years without coming close to getting past the Pats.
Top 8 QB, top 3 receiving corps, great OL, solid TE's, and a good/great running attack, and
a decent defense full of #1 picks. Not a lot to show for all that talent. It must be horrendous for them to keep losing to a team that (to them) consists of Brady, Gronk, and 51 guys who most of their fans have never heard of. No wonder they think the Pats cheat.
So no, Tomlin isn't a bad coach, he just looks that way when you compare him to the guy we have seen these last 19 years.
I don't see it that way, he basically initiated the fight to ensure he would get the first blow, plus he stood up and was in the guys face.. anyone who escalates that quickly with potentially deadly force is someone who is unhinged and violent
I mean, ok, sure, I don't know the full story, but here's the thing. Any time another man gets in your face like that, you should kinda be expecting to get hit. That's what makes it not a sucker shot, because you know it might be coming. Sucker shot would've been him hitting dude when he wasn't looking.
He's at a football game and the guy is sitting right next to him, so you're going to be in each other's faces just by sheer proximity. He didn't run up to him and get in his face (at least not from what I can tell based on this video), they're sitting right next to each other and the older guy is clearly intoxicated. They're rooting for the same team, I can't imagine what was said for him to respond with sheer violence like that other than a direct threat from the other guy
People at football games are always screaming, shouting and drinking. Its one thing to to use violence in defense of yourself or others, but in this case he was not defending himself he was attacking another person with a potentially deadly headbutt. Although it's not that likely, people do die from 1 hit knockouts at all ages because your body goes limp and you can't make even a feeble attempt to protect your head when you fall. You go limp, your head smashes into pavement/concrete/metal and you can die from it. Its how people find themselves in prison for manslaughter nearly every day in this country
Note: I haven't listened to it with audio yet, that could completely change my opinion if the old drunk guy is throwing out threats of violence
Guys, it wasn't a head butt. He was just offsides. No big deal in ****tsburgh.
I’m a heavy drinking 163 lbs so I guess what I meant was I hope no one call me fat.
I’ll never understand the concept of using one's head as a weapon. My head is one of the most important parts of me.
163!!! The last time I weighed 163 was in 1972. The next time I weigh 163 I will have been dead for 3 months
He's a coach who hasn't won at the level of the talent he has. You said that yourself in your post. He also has totally undisciplined players and makes some boneheaded decisions. I don't see how that classifies him as even a decent coach. It isn't just the Pats who beat them.
I think the first guy disliked one of the second guy's posts on the Steelers message board.
Depends on how you define "decent". He's probably a top 7 or so coach in the NFL. Just have to grade on a curve
I didn’t mention that I’m 3’2”.
This obscure rule could have ended last night's game in bizarre fashion:
Ref could have awarded the Chargers a score over Steelers’ repeated offsides
That’s the word from former NFL heads of officiating Dean Blandino and Mike Pereira, who both said in a video for FOX that committing repeated penalties in an effort to stop the other team from scoring is a penalty itself that can result in the team being given the score.
“There is something in the rulebook that I don’t know if a lot of people know about: There is a penalty for continually fouling to prevent a score,” Blandino said.
Pereira said in situations like the game last night, the rules allow for the referee to just give the team the points.
“If you deem that they intentionally did this, intentionally fouled on successive plays . . . the referee could in fact award a score,” Pereira said. “Successive penalties intentionally committed to try to prevent a score, you can go ahead and award a score.”
Blandino said he would have supported the referee warning the Steelers after the second offside penalty that if they did it again, the Chargers would be given the points.
“The rulebook is clear. You give a warning and after the warning you give a score. I would have strongly considered it after the second one, but certainly the third one,” Blandino said.
That result would have been among the strangest endings in NFL history!
no kidding..I liked your work in that Bond film...
Imagine if the Patriots pulled this ****. SJW would demand we forfeit the season immediately. NFL memes wouldn't hesitate to post non-stop cheating memes from now until next Sunday.
SJW huh? Maybe you should take a break from the computer and come back on a few days...or a few years...
