It seems that when the team hands down punishments, it sometimes alters or lessens the punishment from the league. Maybe the Steelers should suspend Tomlin for 1 game (without pay), donate his game money to an NFL cause (this CTE research stuff / research of better equipment or something) and maybe if they are sitting on the fence about draft picks, this will help their decision. This is a bunch of BS.
Whats the talk about giving the Ravens picks for compensation. I don't know, but this crap smells really bad. This isn't normal to "hold off" with a punishment.

You want to talk about much ado about nothing, this is a prime example. The Steelers should have received a letter from the NFL offices with a warning and it should have been done, even a fine is ridiculous for somethig of such little consequence in a football game.
The more decisions that the NFL makes the more I hate watching games and is probably the reason I don't watch any games except for Steeler games. I'd rather watch Happy Days reruns instead of a football game.
The NFL is run by idiots.

Not sure why people are acting like this is THAT shocking. I could see if he made contact or we won the game but it didn't impact the outcome. I don't have a problem with the fine but the "intentional" part is crazy talk.
Jumbotrons footage can be delayed by a few seconds...
I don't think Tomlin intentionally positioned himself to interfere with Jones because at the time he stepped on the paint, even that second step, he wouldn't have seen Jones heading to the sidelines until after the fact...
