Didn't hear that. He needs to sleep on it and wake up tomorrow and have a dip in the pool, sip a latte, and hug his family.

And, maybe, send flowers to Cowther's wife.

All I know is Cowher kept waiting and waiting for him, I think I saw Cowher say "wheres Mike?"

for sure he didn't shake hands. His players showed greater respect for the Steelers than there head coach.. Then he says after "I hope I've taught them to dislike this feeling and to remember it so that they don't feel this way again when they make it to this level" or something like that.. I also got the feeling he wasn't coming back after that statement.. either way.. screw him.. I could care less what he does with his washed up career....

Well If he did come over and shake his hand, good job, that's what your supposed to do. If he did not, screw him. We got the ring baby.

I've changed my mind on Holmgren, it was disrespectful to not shake hands. Apparently, Bill's first thought was "where's mike?" After not seeing him he got a "Cold look" on his face, and someone went to try to find him. this was when they showed Cowher in what seemed shock, or disbelief after the game. John and Al went to commercial, hoping for something to show for a handshake, they got nothing, said a few words, went back to break, hoping to see something, got nothing again, and then the presentation was made. And that was that.

It would have been proper to come shake his hand, that shows class no matter how pissed you are. Cowher would have done it.

But Holmgren is a helluva coach he got them damn close this year so he has nothing to hang his head over.

I think he should have shook Bill's hand but you do understand why he didn't yes? Nobody is perfect so anger and disappointment can get to us all.

To tell you the truth, I didn't see Holgrem and Cowher shake hands, but by that point I had to turn off the set and go outside to have a piss in the woods. If he didn't shake hands. That's bad form. I'm thinking he did, and it just didn't get televised. I hope that's the case because I would like to think the coach would have some class. I'm pretty sure that Paul Allen will extend Holgrem's contract. He'd be crazy not to... He took the Hawks to a new level. Now he has to take them to the final level of play. Next year in Miami.

Sure I understand the dissapointment and anger of losing a game like this. We've been there already, trust me I know.

This I agree with especially to the final level.
