Mike Tomlin Banned All Games In Steelers Locker Room


The Pittsburgh Steelers are still looking for their first win of the season. It is week 6 and they are still winless, so head coach Mike Tomlin banned all games in the locker room so the players can focus on football. The ping pong table and the pool table are off-limits. I wonder how many big offensive linemen played the ping pong table?

“Nobody is really tripping about it,” left guard Ramon Foster said. “We understand the spirit in which it’s done in, and we’re just playing football.”

Ben Roethlisberger and a group of other vets prohibited the younger players from play games in the locker room during working hours after the team starter 0-2. It doesn’t look like it has worked so far, so Tomlin put that restriction out to the whole team. Everyone wins and loses together.

I wonder what happens if they keep on losing? Maybe they will ban the soda machine and players will go in the corner for timeouts.
