Actually, what former DK Subscriber is saying about DK calling all critics of Tomlin as racists is a flat out misrepresentation. I read that article and it was clear he was referring to the coded language used to describe Tomlin and black players. The use of thugs and thug culture is selectively used a lot among a certain segment of Steelers fans to explain the empty seats (2 years ago when empty seats would be seen during primetime games and you could read the comments explaining why on different sites such as the local CBS KDKA one). Or when Bell got suspended, on some sites, people talked about thug culture being condoned by Tomlin. Bell is an idiot, but you wonder about some fans when they use the word thug.

DK in no way condoned their actions. Hell, if anything, the site did question Bell's sincerity. And they have taken shots at Tomlin in the past.

I question DK's coverage of the Steelers and think they lack the beat reporters who are able to get inside that lockerroom. But come on. let's not exaggerate.
