    Default Whoops! Steelers assistant coach sends sex video to Goodell and many others..

    Steelers' assistant apologizes for raunchy e-mail to Goodell, others
    By ALAN ROBINSON, AP Sports Writer
    May 31, 2007

    PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line coach Larry Zierlein apologized Thursday for accidentally e-mailing an explicit sex video to numerous NFL employees, including league commissioner Roger Goodell.

    Zierlein said the incident has been difficult for him and his family and that he intends to use his team-issued computer only for football business from now on. He sent a note of apology to all NFL employees and those with the Steelers who received his raunchy e-mail.

    "It's hard because I made an inexcusable mistake," Zierlein said, discussing the matter for the first time. "It was hard first for the organization. They had to explain and go through ... and my family, for what they're going to have to hear. So it was tough, but when you've been at this stuff for as long as a lot of us have, tough things happen and you've got to move on and that's what we're doing."

    The incident is the first blemish on new Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and his staff, and it clearly bothered team chairman Dan Rooney -- a Hall of Fame executive and one of the league's most respected owners. It is uncertain if the Steelers, or the NFL, will discipline Zierlein, though Rooney has talked to him.

    "I'd rather just keep it within," Zierlein said, asked what the Steelers said to him. "I will say this is a very supportive organization."

    The problem occurred two weeks ago when Zierlein -- a 61-year-old grandfather -- intended to forward the video clip, which was e-mailed to him by another Steelers employee. However, Zierlein accidentally e-mailed the video to numerous league personnel, causing staff members with other NFL teams to begin discussing the foul-up.

    "It was 100 percent unintentional," Zierlein said. "I don't even know how to mass e-mail. I don't know these machines very good, it was just a 100 percent unintentional thing. Hit the wrong button. It's something I really regret for obvious reasons: for the organization, for my family, for the whole thing. It's been a tough deal, but it's like anything else. You learn from it and you move on."

    Zierlein did not explain why, when after he initially viewed the video he didn't delete it rather than attempting to e-mail to someone else.

    "I'm not very good at these machines and I hit the wrong button," Zierlein said. "There's nothing else to say, no other explanation."

    Zierlein was hired in January after Tomlin replaced Bill Cowher as coach. Zierlein has been a coach since 1970, working at the Texas high school level, collegiately at Houston, Cincinnati, Tulane and LSU, and in the NFL with the Bengals, Bills, Browns and Steelers.

    Haha, I can just see the look on his face when he realized that he just forwarded the video to his entire address book that includes the commissioner of the NFL and many other important NFL associates.

    I feel bad for the guy.

    It was probably just some joke someone sent him and he ends up sending it to the whole league haha.

    I just people can laugh it off, because it's pretty funny.

    With the steroid abuse on this team and the porn and dog fighting they apparently traffic in, it looks like Cowher got out at an opportune time. And now they are trying to steal the Colt's offense: http://www.stampedeblue.com/story/2007/5/17/125949/404

    I don't think a guy who needs to tape an encyclopedia to his arm just to run their more basic offense is going to be able to handle it :

    Dog fighting? Vick doesn't play for the Steelers.

    The steroid abuse was in the 70s, and the Steelers weren't the only team. Not a current problem and the Steelers have been leaders in seeking medical care for the players (like Mike Webster) that were involved.

    And Ben ran a no-huddle in college and ran it to perfection in the preseason, pre-appendectomy, last year, after which iit was put up on the shelf.

    The assistant coach is a new guy and wasn't one of Cowher's.

    Any other lies or mistruths up your sleeve?
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Well, the horse, unfortunately wasn't able to fight back, but this viscious attack by Joey Porter's dogs was an act of criminal negligence:

    PINE TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Authorities said charges have been filed against Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Joey Porter after two of his dogs mauled a neighbor's animal to death.Authorities said the two pit bulls, Tina and Nemo, got loose on Tuesday and attacked a neighbor's miniature pony.
    http://www.thepittsburghchannel.com/...74/detail.html

    And yeah they deny it, but any one with half a brain knows this guy was dealing to the team.
    Last month, a New York investigator who has been tracking suspicious purchases from Signature Pharmacy flew to Pittsburgh to interview a top physician for the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers about why he allegedly used a personal credit card to purchase roughly $150,000 in testosterone and human growth hormone in 2006...investigators in New York said his orders of testosterone piqued their interest because of the large volume, his position with an NFL team and because he allegedly used a personal credit card...I've never seen a doctor pull out his or her own credit card … it just doesn't make sense,'' Catizone said. “Unless you are trying to build frequent-flyer miles on a credit card, I'm not sure why they'd be using a personal credit card.'' Rydze and two spokesmen for the Steelers' organization declined repeated requests for comment over the past two weeks. Pennsylvania state medical board officials also declined to comment. NFL officials were taken by surprise as news of the case swept through the sports world on the Internet.
    http://timesunion.com/AspStories/sto...007&TextPage=1

    Of course, Porter was cut after that scandal broke, but No absolutely no connection there. No siree. Then there was the linebacker pimp:
    The suspects name is Richard Seigler. He's a professional football player who, until Thursday morning, was a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Now, he's charged with running a prostitution operation on the streets of Las Vegas.
    http://withleather.com/post.phtml?pk=2844

    The 70's championships should just be nullified. It's that simple. The team out and out cheated and have at least admitted it:
    Go to one of the old book stores. See if you can find Steve Courson's "False Glory," published in 1991. It was a fascinating read then and is even more fascinating now. Courson, who played for the Steelers from 1977-83, detailed his and his teammates' steroids use...But Courson wrote that 75 percent of the Steelers' offensive linemen took steroids at one time or another and would sit around as a group discussing their usage the way other men might discuss their wife or girlfriend, a night at the bar or a good hunting trip.Chuck never encouraged steroid use on the Steelers, but he conveniently and most definitely turned his head to it," Courson wrote. He cited an example of Noll calling him out in front of the team and screaming -- "All you want to do is body-build and take steroids!" -- after his hamstring was pulled in training camp in 1983. "That was a full two years before I admitted my steroid usage in Sports Illustrated," Courson added. "Evidently, [Noll] was not as blind or ignorant of the steroid issue as he would have the politicians and public believe."
    http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/05086/478215.stm

    This is a team of derelicts, roid users and general low character who would not have won one single championship without A)cheating B)catching a superior team that hadn't played a meaningful game in a month. C)horrendously one sided officiating.

    And oh this isn't a hurry up offense. It's a hurry up driving offense:

    Wow. Changeup from the pitcher.
    Um, Gravity's Rainbow is my favorite, but I found it really, really difficult the first time I read it. In fact, I had to make myself get to the end. I wasn't accustomed to the sort of fragmented plot structure and deep symbolism which took a while to process. But something stuck to my ribs and the 2nd time I read it the whole thing opened up and deepened like the proverbial lobster waters off the North Shore.
    V. is a much better one to get your feet wet. I love that one as well (as evidenced by my screen name.) Or the Crying of Lot 49 is one that is taught in a lot of lit classes. Much shorter than his others. With Pynchon, the literary criticism is a whole cottage industry that can really shed light on some of the more opaque aspects of the novels. After I had read GR a few times I picked up some of the lit.crit and it really broadened the experience.They have plenty of that at the IMCPL.
    I haven't read Against the Day yet, but I'm looking forward to it.
    Drop me a line and let me know what your impressions are.

    Yeah, I just read Lot 49 about a week ago, and I was going to start GR since I already have it, but everyone seems to recommend reading V. next, so I think I'll get it from the Butler library and start on it. I've got classes and other stuff I'm reading through, so it'll be a good long while before I finish V. and GR, but I'll def drop ya a line.
