    The heaviest fine is Tomlin's legacy and reputation. Will never live this one down.

    With the way the language is set up (waiting until end of season before a decision on draft picks are considered) it also sets up Tomlin to be the fall guy at the end of the season. He is toast. It can be looked upon as a draft pick saving maneuver, distancing themselves from the incident.

    I really think people are overreacting (I think the fine is perfect punishment). If the Ravens had lost though...

    Wait, did the Ravens not score on that drive? I didn't watch the game so I don't know.

    My point is Tomlin has always been a stand up guy, I don't buy that whole "One 'oh crap' can wipe out a thousand 'atta boys'".

    I'm sure there's plenty of people overreacting JUST IN THIS THREAD that have done much worse and didn't get any punishment for it. I know I've done worse.

    Inexcusable to not throw the flag with such a clear view of it right here.

    This is just another thing the steelers have done that will get swept under the rug, and the media perception will continue to be "what a class, top notch organization they are."

    They are like 3rd in the NFL for arrests since 2009 or something.
    Santonio Holmes - multiple arrests
    Mike Logan
    Matt Spaeth
    Reed the punter multiple times
    Chris Rainey
    Alamedas Ta'amu - rookie that had close to 20 counts against him when he was arrested
    James Harrison - plus he was cut 3 times prior to becoming Defensive player of the year, ... can you say steriods
    Then you have a steeler icon arrested, Hines Ward

    The face of the franchise is a serial rapist.

    Even their mascot, Steely McBeam was arrested

    Now Tomin pulls this crap.

    More to be swept under the rug of illusion that the steelers are a class organization.

    I agree that this one act doesn't wipe out everything else. I don't agree that the fine itself is a perfect punishment. It goes back to the coaches should be held to a higher standard.

    All I have to say is that the NFL should fine themselves for interfering with the integrity of the game after calling the running back down when his helmet came off in the middle of falling down over the goal line.

    That is a bigger disgrace by far than Tomlin!

    Most likely it isn't going to be a first round pick or even a high draft pick.

    I can understand waiting to see the draft order to determine the penalty. I think it does make a difference on just how high they are drafting in any one round. Would you rather pick at the top of the 4th round or at the bottom of the 4th round? Perhaps the NFL would see taking a late 4th round pick as not harsh enough and would instead take away a late 3rd rounder. Or maybe they will think taking an early 4th rounder as just right.

    All signs point to the league making sure the Steelers win the SB and therefore end up with the last pick in each round.

    Add this to my previous post:

    Steelers coach accused of defacing rental home

    If all of this stuff was going on with a certain team in Texas, you now ESPN would never let it die.

    Gotta agree here -- Tomlin handled this well. I totally buy that he lost sight of where he was on the field. How he has handled this is what is going to maintain his legacy.

    Fine, tell that to the spouse that finds out her/his spouse cheated after 7 good years. Sometimes an apology or "I'm sorry" just doesn't get it.

    Tomlin is what he is, and right now he looks bad.

    Integrity, reputation, character, ... all take a long time to establish, .. but only one bad decision to destroy.

    I still respect Tomlin, this doesn't change my opinion of him one bit. If you ask me, what BB did in New England is much worse and his reputation hasn't suffered one bit. So why should Tomlin's ?

    There have been situations as you described where "I'm sorry" was enough and the couples went on and were happy.

    Good. How there wasn't a flag at the time is still beyond me.

    Sad thing is that those officials are just the tip of the iceberg. They need to revamp the whole official system. We need younger faster guys that actually have good eyesight and the integrity to call them as they see them not caring who it is. Right now we have old, biased and squinty eyed jokes.

    The same in that "One 'oh crap' can wipe out a thousand 'atta boys".

    Not that the two situations are similar.
