    What exactly was intentional? What do you think he (unsuccessfully) tried to do to the ball carrier, all the while knowing he had a dozen cameras on him, referees around him, and instant reply and youtube, etc.?

    Did he chicken out at the last minute? Because its pretty clear in the video that he jumped away from the ball carrier when he saw him.

    What was Tomlin intentionally trying to do? In your answer, please assume he's somewhat sane and not a retard.

    That's interesting, because actually anybody that thinks Tomlin's actions were intentional need to have their head examined. Yeah, he's going to ON NATIONAL TV intentionally impede the path of a runner, knowingly putting himself and the team into all kinds of @#$%. Makes perfect sense.

    This is a stupid analogy to try and prove your case. The Simpson situation and Tomlin situation are completely different. With Simpson, intent was not an issue, its whether facts show he was the person who committed the acts (and they clearly did). With Tomlin, whether he committed the acts is not an issue (he clearly did - its on video for all to see), its whether he intended to commit the crime (interfering with the runner). Completely different analysis. And its very easy for an intelligent person, like myself, to say (1) Simpson clearly committed what he was charged with despite the lack of video showing it, and (2) its quite likely Tomlin did not commit what you charged him with, even upon review of the video. You need to frame that up better in your mind, before you start posting exaggerated goofball apples-v.-oranges messages. That's my advice, anyway.

    of course you must be right.

    nobody has ever made a rash judgement in the heat of the moment.

    moonie- tomlin was intentionally trying to change the runners angle and help his pursuit. I'm not going to beat him up over it as I really don't care that he did it. Obviously, if the steelers lose a draft pick, I reserve the right to change my stance.

    He didn't intend to impede the runner any more than you did...

    1. He had motive.
    2. He didnt start to the field until Jones broke through the tacklers.
    3. I've personally never noticed him that close before, but I didnt notice it this time either.
    4. He got a $100,000 fine and its over. (guess its not over...didnt know it was possible, still yet, that we could lose a draft pick)
    5. No longer a reason to care.

    Doesn't it seem odd to some that Tomlin had his back to the play the entire time? And before you say he was watching on the jumbo, why would he? Maybe a replay, but I have NEVER seen a coach with his back to a play the entire time, sideline or no sideline.
