A US Sports Coach vs Len Brown

Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburg Steelers had a brain explosion on the sideline of a match.

It cost him $100,000.00

His confession is a big lesson…on how to deal with mistakes.

Speaking at his Tuesday press conference, Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin acknowledged that his actions on Jacoby Jones’ 73-yard kickoff return last week were “embarrassing, inexcusable, illegal” and “a blunder.”

As head coaches, we’re held to higher standards of conduct, and that blunder fell woefully short and in that vein I accept … the repercussions of a blunder of that nature,” Tomlin said. “I embrace it. With my position comes preserving the integrity of the game of football.” 

He went further:

“My actions on that play are embarrassing,” Tomlin said. “I take full responsibility for my actions. I understand there are repercussions that come with a blunder of that nature. With my position comes the charge of preserving and protecting the integrity of football.

“That play jeopardized the integrity of the NFL from a competition standpoint. That’s a mistake on my part. I was focused on the blunder itself and the embarrassment it produced. As a head coach in this league we are held to a higher standard of conduct. Based on that, my actions were below the line.”

And look at the actions and comments of Len Brown…where he claims vindication, that everything he has done is all part of  smear an that he will continue on as Mayor even though everyone has lost not only trust but confidence in his ability to do his job.
