Steelers website accuses Patriots of cheating last night
Annnnnnnnnnnnd here come the cheating accusations!
The Pittsburgh Steelers website, which apparently can't accept defeat at the hands of the Patriots, accused the home team of cheating due to Steelers coaches headsets picking up the Patriots radio broadcast at the beginning of last nights game.
When pressed after the game, an unhappy Mike Tomlin said headset issues have occurred repeatedly in New England.
"That's always the case. Yes. I said what I said," the Steelers coach said.
As it turns out, the Patriots coaches were having similar problems with their headsets.
"We had a lot of problems," Bill Belichick said. "We had to switch headphones a couple of times. The communication system wasn't very good. We deal with that, it seems, weekly.
"They told us they were on the verge of shutting it off, but then I guess they got it working. I don't know, but it was a problem the whole game. We almost had to switch helmets with [Tom] Brady there at the end. Couldn't get the plays in to him. It was a problem all night."
So there you have it. It happened to both teams. Controversy over.
