this "story" is actually on the front page of msn.com. :doh: unfreaking belivable.

shoddy journalism at best especially when watching the clip-

http://now.msn.com/now-plus/0219-mike-tomlin-cameraman.aspx

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, known for being a cool customer under pressure, got a bit annoyed during last night's Kentucky-Ole Miss basketball game when an ESPN cameraman got a little too close (but not THAT close). Tomlin was visibly steaming but silent for a few seconds before clipping off a terse, "You got enough? I'm trying to watch the game." Pretty touchy for a guy used to being on camera. Maybe he's still grumpy from the 80-yard Tim Tebow pass that knocked the Steelers out of the playoffs, reproduced here in Tecmo Bowl form.

Visibly steaming? Wow, I wonder what they would call it if he actually got mad.

the writer of that trash is obviously a hater. i guess all the local arians ball washers in the media will run with this and get in a few digs at rooney just for grins-

"Art Rooney II has lost control",

"Mike Tomlin feeling the pressure"

What a non-story. Keep in mind that the camera man probably spent twenty minutes setting the camera up on him before the shot went live, lol. The camera was probably on him long before it went live.

He even cracked a hint of a smile at the end. Hardly news worthy.

MSNBC needs a vocabulary refresher course. (and a headline editor)

Typical present day media shit creating a story when there is none.

BS piece since the guy next to him was laughing when Mike was commenting. Probably saying, "hey Ahole the game is going on!

But in his defense, the Steeler FO has proven to be on edge with the media and fans this off season, lol

I can't believe that the camera man made it out alive, let alone one piece. The pure evil that went down in that clip is nothing but carnage. I say we get rid of Tomlin because of this. It's quite clear that the Rooney's have officially lost their grip on this team. Noll OR Cowher never abused their contract like Tomlin has done. Glaring and asking a cameraman to move aside is as asinine as it comes. It simply CANNOT be tolerated. This is such a distraction. We are an 5-11 football team at the moment because of these actions.

I think Ben and Todd Haley's hatred for each other is obviously wearing off on the team. Something needs to be done!

oh wow - top story, eh? Even more pathetic indeed!

If I was a journalist I would be selling my soul to the social media satan - if not for this demon, journalism as a whole would be dead via the way of newspapers.

Their numbers would be cut at least in half as all you would need would be beat reporters who also double as columnists, and the webmaster to post and manage online subscriptions

Dork 1: "Hey man, isn't that Mike Tomlin over there?"
Dork 2: "Hey, yeah it is......it looks like he's really into this game."
Dork 1: "Hey, yeah it does......I'll go over there with a camera and stand right in front of him until he gets pissed off."
Dork 2: "Hey yeah, great idea."

Maybe Bill Bellicheats* camera cronies, getting a step up on the AFC competition for the 2012 NFL season. Bill is sly, real sly.

Goodell is looking into a suspension do to what Tomlin might have been thinking he might like to do to the camera dude.
