Jay Glazer better explain himself or face the consequences.
This week, we found out from the NFL Insider that Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin invited a group of kids to a Steelers practice after seeing them fighting in the streets and putting a stop to the altercation after getting out of his car, according to Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer.
Tomlin reportedly hung out with the kids for a few hours before inviting them to the Steelers’ training camp.
“Best thing/story I’ve seen so far on my camp tour. A little backstory. @CoachTomlin was driving in his car when he saw these kids fighting in the street. Tomlin pulls over and the kids, in obvious shock at who stepped out of the car, stopped fighting,” Glazer tweeted Thursday. “Mike then spent the next few hours with the kids. Yesterday he invited the same group of kids, who all go to a local community center, to be his guest at practice.”
That is a wonderful story, but it appears it isn’t true. A few people on social media said the children Tomlin invited to training camp weren’t fighting in the street.
In fact, it was the wife of Joey Porter who threatened to get lawyers involved if Glazer doesn’t correct his story.
“It wasn’t the ‘feel good story’ you wanted so you turned little black boys into hoodlums who needed reformation,” a person tweeted at Glazer. “Explain yourself.”
Apparently, Tomlin already has a preexisting relationship with the kids from Jasmine Nyree Campus.
Tomlin is the second-longest tenured head coach in the NFL, having taken over the Steelers in 2007 and winning a Super Bowl in his second season. In his 15 seasons as head coach, Tomlin has never had a losing record and has 10 playoff appearances.
