a grown man pulls another grown man by the arm and pulls him in - face to face - it is an intimidation tactic - and it didn't work. Tomlin simply doesn't respect him - and Harbaugh got butt burt by it - which just goes to show how much the Steelers are in their heads. That handshake moment was awfully important to Harbaugh - you want to call someone a douche - call Harbaugh a douche. You don't get physical with someone like that.

Better to brush off someone like an adult would do than revert to childish, physical intimidation. You might want to read up on some social sciences. Outside of boxing and wrestling -you don't get physical with another adult. Harbaugh is immature just like his brother.

I usually read quite a bit about each game, win or lose, but somehow missed the Harbaugh locker-room stuff from the 13-10 game. Was that reported anywhere? Is it possible he didn't know a camera was on? (Heaven knows I'm not defending the comments. Just thinking he may have been in unguarded d-bag form if he thought no cameras were rolling.)

Would be very interesting to see this board's reaction if the shoe was on the other foot.
Would be the same as I feel about it now. A non-issue. Since when is more emphasis put on the post game handshake than the actual game?

the ravens have been disrespecting the steelers for far too long and tomlin has probably had enough. from their tee-shirts, to them treating the terrible towel like their dickwipe, the gatorade baths, the constant shit talk about hate, the bounties.

harbaugh allows and encourages it.

tomlin usually treats ALL opponents with respect, win or loss.

He does not like him any more than Schwarz likes the other West Coast A $ $ Clown. They are both douche bags and no Ravens fan, no matter what they say, will make us believe otherwise. He acts like a spoiled little kid who jumps up and down and cries way more often than is necessary. You never see Tomlin pulling that crap with the refs. He is calm, cool and collected on the sidelines and in interviews. He understands coachspeak very well. Harbaugh has no clue.

Anyone notice during the final drive that Harbaugh's nose and cheeks were read and his eyes looked bloodshot? I seriously think he was trying not to cry. Wish I got a screencap of that.

Tomlins actions there supervised me, but judging on how he's always acted in the past, I'm not sure if it was an intentional slight or not. It's not like Hardbaugh and Tomlin have had issues shaking hands before...not a huge deal to me either way

IMO, there was shared douche baggery. Whatever.

I think something happened that we're not aware of yet. It's not like Tomlin - who is usually calm, cool and collected - to do something like that. Or, maybe Mike got tired of Johnny bitching to the refs about every single call against the Ravens.
