The NFL has fined #Steelers coach Mike Tomlin $25,000 for public criticism of game officials, per source.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) October 10, 2018
Seems a little too harsh considering he could've said a lot worse, no?
Tomlin's comments are just another in the ever-growing chorus of players and coaches expressing their frustration with inconsistent officiating this year. Hopefully, things will start changing for the better. Otherwise, 2018 may end up being a long season for players, coaches and fans alike.
