(Newser) – Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin's wallet is a lot lighter today. The NFL fined Tomlin $100,000 after he interfered with an opposing player running back a kick during the Thanksgiving game against the Baltimore Ravens. The Steelers also could lose a draft pick. Tomlin has apologized but says it was an accident.

100g's gets the message out. I think Jason Kidd got the same for his spilled drink farce so the NBA & NFL are on the same page here.

So if I was there and pulled him back would he have paid me some cash! I'd take a few grand for preventing him from getting fined!
