Report: Steelers to file complaint to NFL about headset issues
The Pittsburgh Steelers will file a complaint to the NFL regarding headset failure on their sideline last night.
I don't know if they're doing this in spite of the Patriots, or they're legitimately curious as to what happened. Either way, they aren't letting it die even though it's been proven that this has nothing to do with the Patriots.
Per a report that just came out on ESPN.com, the Patriots also claimed they were experiencing headset issues as well. The NFL released a statement regarding the matter.
"In the first quarter of tonight's game, the Pittsburgh coaches experienced interference in their headsets caused by a stadium power infrastructure issue, which was exacerbated by the inclement weather," the statement read. "The coaches' communications equipment, including the headsets, is provided by the NFL for both clubs' use on game day. Once the power issue was addressed, the equipment functioned properly with no additional issues."
We'll see how this plays out, but this really is a non-story made bigger than it should be because the Steelers can't accept the fact they lost in New England.
