Exclusive Video of Steelers Communications Problems vs. Patriots
Breaking news! We have obtained exclusive video of Steelers coach Mike Tomlin as he encountered communication problems with his press box coaches in Pittsburgh's 28-21 loss in New England to the Patriots.
First game out of the gate and there's MORE controversy involving the Patriots and their home field, Gillette Stadium?
The Patriots' place is sure living up to the old slogan of its corporate namesake -- "Gillette, the best a man can get"...as long as you're wearing Red, White and Blue.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin says his coaches were being fed a steady audio diet of play-by-play from the Patriots Radio Network throughout much of the first half.
Funny thing is, the NFL is responsible for all communications for BOTH teams. The league blamed it on a "stadium power infrastructure issue".
Why do I get a mental picture of a maintenance closet full radio equipment deep in the bowels of Gillette Stadium, and a group of Southies all grinning to each other? The game gets to halftime and one says, "My boy's wicked smaht!"
