The league is ready to put their foot down on this one, as they should be. That cheshire cat grin he was sporting on the sideline after the play is going to do him no favors.

I dont care what he says, he knew EXACTLY what he was doing, when he stepped on that field. That evil smirk/smile we saw afterwards said everything you need to know. if the nba will fine Kidd 50k for his stunt and it wasnt in the middle of a scoring play.......Tomlin should get crushed.

Huge fine, yes. Draft picks, moronic. But then again, Goddell is in charge.

The officiating crew from that game should get some "love" from the league as well.

Really stupid decision and stunt, Tomlin. Steelers may fire you for that.

Agreed. Tomlin was looking over his shoulder and waited 'til the last minute. Deserves what he gets.

Rooneys have a little mess on their hands. Let's see how they handle it.

I'm good with a fine and suspension for Mike Tomlin.

I don't believe the team should lose draft picks over this.

He was watching it on the Jumbotron the whole time.

He knew it exactly what he was doing.

It seems a bit excessive.

As stupid as Jason Kidd's stunt.
