Voice of the Fan Poll: How should Tomlin discipline Le’Veon Bell & LeGarrette Blount?

In this weeks’ SCB Poll, we want to know what you would do if you were the head coach of the Steelers; how would you discipline Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount?   Due to the nature of the CBA, the team can’t just suspend them and call it day.  So, do you wait and let the NFL hand down the punishment in due time? Perhaps you decide to just deactivate them for 1 game and...

Steelers won’t suspend Bell or Blount

According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,  the Steelers will not be suspending either Le’Veon Bell or LeGarrette Blount.

CBA prevents Steelers discipline for Bell, Blount

Good morning, A fellow who plays fantasy football asked me yesterday if I thought Le’Veon Bell would be suspended for the first game of the season. I told him no.
