All the local sports media knew exactly what was going on but buried the story. And people in the media wonder why the public has no respect for them anymore?

Why did Tomlin, who lives in the city, send his kids to a high school (Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic High School) with a lousy football reputation 30 minutes away in the suburbs? He could have easily enrolled them literally down the street at Central Catholic, one of the best high school football programs in the entire country?

And now that John Steigerwald dared write about it he is being attacked by the Steelers stooges in the local media.

Mike White, PG high school sports reporter, Jan 25th on Twitter:
https://twitter.com/mwhiteburgh/status/824461174238543872
"N. Catholic no longer Steelers North. Mike Tomlin's two sons have transferred to Shady Side Academy. Joey Porter son, nephew to N. Allegheny"

https://twitter.com/mwhiteburgh/status/824461554401808388
"The Tomlin and Porter transfers after Jason Gildon was fired and Patrick O'Shea hired at NCaholic. Gildon's two sons now at North Allegheny."

The media, both print and over the air, protects the Steelers so they don't lose access to the team. I really think that is all that it is. The Steelers and the Rooneys have risen to a point where they are above criticism. It takes a rogue, cranky, retired sports reporter to report it in some back country paper.

What "news" is there here? Was anybody arrested? Anybody getting sued? Any actual public, written down complaint? Parents being dicks during high school games is not new and is hardly endemic to Porter or Tomlin. Porter getting arrested on the Southside? News and broken as it happened. This isn't "news." There's got to be a line somewhere between their public lives and their private lives. And if going into a locker room and bitching about the refs is news, or making a (legal) ass out of yourself during a game your kids are playing is news then the local section would be stuffed with this crap ever damn day.
I mean, it's not like there's footage of strippers pissing on a future president.

The local news isn't stuffed with that crap every day because no one would care if it was just an average parent. But, this was the Steeler's coach and his out of control buddy. I think that makes it somewhat newsworthy. Isn't an NFL coach supposed to be some kind of leader and be better than this?

The police confirmed that they were needed to remove Joey Porter from the field. The opposing coach confirmed he was on the field and got a penalty. This is indeed news and if you are a public figure and you are out in public, you don't get to make this distinction that it is private time. Porter is a clown and an embarrassment to the Steelers.
