I think it's a big deal when players disrespect a symbol of fan support. The fans have no means of interacting with the game in any meaningful way (thankfully) other than things like the Towel, or the octopus in Detroit. When players interject themselves in that, I think it's a colossal mark of ****.

I just have few things in sports that irritate me more than athletes taunting fans.

You don't need to hug and share stories like Garrett and Reid did tonight but you won. even if you hate the guy it should be easier to show sportsmanship


Harbaugh was clearly running his mouth and Tomlin wanted to get as far away from him and as quickly as possible

Casual fans get upset at the terrible towel thing because its feigning passion


Belicheck ditched out on a handshake with Tomlin and Cowher.... Not much stink when it happened


Harbaugh said "Congratulations". It doesn't get much clearer than that.

Fair point. But I actually thinks thats the most fun. The fans get on the players and the players sometimes give it right back to the fans.

The dialogue was this (saw it on another link that I can't find right now)...

Harbaugh: "Congratulation"
Tomlin as he is walking by: "Thanks"
Harbaugh chasing Tomlin: "Hey, hey, hey, I said congratulations."
Tomlin turning back: "Thanks. That's all."

Tomlin should have just cut his head off with a sword.

So harbaugh wanted some praise back. What a baby.

Just an FYI. Rice traded his gloves for the towel which he wore on his head an intended to put in his game room as a memory of the rivalry between the Steelers and Ravens. He meant no disrespect.

Whether its the towel or the handshake, only crazies get upset at either.

Big deal.

Anyone think Tomlin calculated this move to get his team to realize this is a rivalry and not to be friends with them like last game? I, for one, applaud the move and I usually can't stand him.

Tomlin probably had to go to the bathroom or something, what did Harbarugh want to tell him that was so important? Don't think too hard about this, it doesn't mean anything.

The Towel didn't see it that way. The Towel is merciless and unforgiving. It simply exacts its revenge. Do not question the Towel.

I loved it when Dwyer scored and did the fake ball toss into the crowd. I usually like the antics between players & fans, but I admit there is a fine line.

i don't know what it is about football, but i don't get offended about anything, really. i don't like the harbaughs simply because they're spazzy. and i hate spazzy people. but it's not like any singular act or anything football-related is upsetting.

it's weird because there are about a thousand things in a hockey game that can make steam come out of my ears, but with the NFL, anything goes. maybe it's because i think the league has become so incredibly vanilla that i'm just dying for something interesting to happen - even if it's otherwise appalling.

The only team that bothers me is the Ravens. They're basically the equivalent of the Flyers in the NHL. They're the toughest guys in the world after the whistle when the officiating is a joke. They've figured out the worst case scenario for them in these cases is for the ref to penalize both teams, but in most cases it's just the retaliator that gets it. I feel like this started with the plexiglass thing back in like 2004. There was a blatant cheap shot that sticks out in my mind when a Ravens corner stomped on Burress when he was on the ground. Now it manifests itself to pushing matches after every single running play in the game.

These things don't seem to happen to anyone but the Ravens...see the Eagles/Ravens issue from earlier this year.

It was just absolutely glorious that Kruger's penalty basically sealed the game though. At that time, they had like 2-3 plays that gained minimal yardage and were still at like a 53 yard FG. Thanks to the idiot who thought it'd be cool to have his shoulder pads hanging out from his jersey the whole game like a 1980s college player, Suisham had a chipshot.

Anyone have any thoughts on the the Pompeani, Nelson and Hoke postgame trio? Pomp sucks, Nelson is a goober and Hoke trips over his own words. Our high school morning news show was better quality than this.

Also, Harbaugh wasting a time out on a laughably bad challenge. They could have gotten the ball back
