According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is no longer allowing any of his players to play pool, ping-pong or shuffleboard in the locker room until the team starts winning. A few weeks ago, the veterans on the team that were part of the 2008 Super Bowl winning team met and decided that teammates with less than four years of experience could no longer play the popular locker room games. That decision didn't seem to help as the Steelers lost their fourth game of the season in London to the Minnesota Vikings. According to Dulac, unidentified veteran players told him they were unsure if they would get the right to play games next week if they are able to win their first game of the season Sunday against the New York Jets. For now, I guess we can call this act by Tomlin him unleashing hell in October. Surely a few of you can come up with a better slogan than that in the comments.
