Sure, embarrassing...but worthy of a law suit?

I sincerely hope not.

If someone had written an email with all types of personal slander I could see a case, but the forwarding of a nudie video?

Well, lets hope not eh?

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

I agree,there won't be a lawsuit over that.

It's being viewed as a mistake.He meant to send it to only a few select people,and due to being e-mail incompetant,emailed it to everyone he could send it to.

There is nothing to sue over,there is no valid case.

I didn't mean to imply that there will be a law suit over this ONE event, but if the NFL (and Steelers) just let this one slide, then they are opeining the door to somone coming along in the future claiming that an environment has been established that tolerates this stuff. With all the focus around conduct in this league I would not be surpised if the made an example (to some degree) of Mr. Zierlein.

Just my 3 cents.

The worst he'll get is a small fine.You can't really punish a guy for being email-illiterate.if the guy knew what he was doing,he would have never mass-mailed that file.

Yes.. I am glad that the Steelers players are level headed and I just hope that the organization does the right thing about this guy and the email.

Was a player involved. Not that I'm aware of.

speaking of off-field distractions, how quickly we have all forgotten about the 'love boat scandel' how do you think that would have played out under the new no tolerence policy?

The Steelers did have some offseason distractions this year, but look how quickly they disappeared. Just awesome.
