Canty calls Tomlin’s maneuver “a low-life move”

We pointed out earlier tonight that some in the Ravens organization believe Steelers coach Mike Tomlin deliberately stepped toward the field once Jacoby Jones broke free from kick coverage in the fourth quarter of Thursday night’s game.

We can apparently count Chris Canty among the some.

Canty, a veteran defensive lineman who signed with the Ravens this year, told WNST radio in Baltimore that Tomlin committed “a low-life move.”  Canty added that Tomlin’s conduct “has no place in our game.”

On Wednesday, the league opinion about the move will become obvious.  Don’t be shocked if Tomlin loses his seat on the Competition Committee as part of the sanction.

  1. As a Ravens fan…I can definitely say I admired how well-spoken and gracious Tomlin is. However, you can’t always judge a book by its cover. The move was bad enough, but the lying about it is worse. I wish they would find the “lie to me” guy and bring him onto ESPN interview.

  2. Needs to be fined heavily and suspended for a game without pay. What a pathetic three year old baby move that was.

  3. The Steelers superiorty through history is evident. Still, recent changes to the NFL have been put in place to prevent the Steelers from having further success. The NFL will be unsucessful in this attempt as we approach #7 this year, but it leaves a bad taste in our mouths. We feel unwanted.

    Just because we are better than every other team (and their empty trophy cases) doesn’t mean we should be punished for it. We welcome competition (even if it comes WAY short) but these rules and fines are being used to SABATOGE the most decorated franchise this sport has known.

    The SFL will change this game back to itself, it’s old self. No more offensive protection. Every player is equal. That’s why they wear pads. Nothing should have changed. No more outragous rules and fines that are consistently controversial. No more TMZ-like reporting in football! No more maximizing profits at the sake of the game!

    This is a man’s game! Just let them play!

    The league will consist of the Steelers organization (this means the superior facets listed in other posts on this site) ONLY. We will establish rules from the ground up. These rules will stick to the foundations the game was based on. 112 members of the NFL may enter this league after deemed “pure”. We’ll introduce our own draft system that will occur every year (details still need arrangement). The orginal Steelers team (in all it’s glory) will be divided into eight teams for the first season. The system is subject to change after every football year.

    I’m merely an underground messenger of this news. Media outlets will begin to provide more details once the Super Bowl is won. News cannot be released before the Super Bowl in fear of backlash from the NFL and it’s associates. The Steeler Nation thanks you for your patience.

    How do we know you’re not lying to us now???

  5. You know what might actually show class?

    Shut your pie-hole and let the NFL do the talking with their discipline.

    And maybe figure out how you’re going to win 2 of the 3 games against Detroit, New England and Cincinnati so you can actually defend your Super Bowl title instead of getting out your snow shovels.

  6. Canty’s been on 6 teams in 5 years…I wonder why. Tomlin may have done it on purpose, but he may not have no matter what the sheep out there think. The Ravens won the game anyway. Fine him and move on.

  7. Good for Canty! Coach Tomlin is a product of our culture. Admit to doing something wrong but tell everyone you didn’t mean it and all is forgiven. Honor is dying a rapid death in this culture and Coach Tomlin is a classic exemplar of the problem.

    ” but it leaves a bad taste in our mouths. We feel unwanted.”

    If it leaves a bad taste in your mouth spit it out, it ain’t yours anyway.

  9. As a RAVENS fan, I think Tomlin should be hit with a fine and we should all move on. While what he did was stupid, I don’t think he did it on purpose. Neither team has ever cheated when we meet so I don’t think he would start now. For you people who made ridiculous comments like fancyleague & patriotswayspygate, you’re laughable. The squealers have been in existence for 80 years with 6 rings. That’s 1 every 13 years. That’s not that great so get over yourself. The RAVENS have 2 in 17 years which is every 8.5 years. That’s a better record whether you like it or not. & fancyleague…Ray Lewis isn’t even with the team anymore but you still put out the same tired, old criticism. I notice you made sure nobody could comment on your sorry ass. You people are ridonkulous

  10. “Hey y’all, grab yer pitchforks an’ some torches, that rascally coach from (not your team) is sellin’ Satan to the masses again!”

    This mindless witch-hunt mentality should embarrass everyone who takes the time to read the comments.

    Nobody (that matters at least) cares whether he did it on purpose or not, the discussion is all about the punishment and what is appropriate. Leave it to the authorities, m’kay?

    Players who openly and very publicly insult coaches – in the SAME LEAGUE – don’t sound like they understand business very well.

    “Yeah that Steve Jones guy, he’s a real low life.”

    (two weeks later)

    “Hey Steve Jones, can I have a job?”

    #FAIL

    Canty has been in the league 9 years and this is his 3rd team. Know your facts before you display your hatred

  12. its funny. how someone is guilty until proven innocent….good thing the media and commentors on this site dont run the court system becuase it aint no telling how many people yall would convict….he is a liar dirtbag etc. get over it people it happened he took responsibility for it but acknowledged his mistake that still isnt enough yall want the man head bs guys get real….you cant judge intent you cant say he did this on purpose or not dude has not giving you any other reason to judge his integrity but in this instance he is the worst coach on Earth…..i support the Ravens before i would the Steelers but Jones was going to get caught regardless the guy had an angle on him….and it goes to let you know how common this goes on in football the refs didnt make the call…..those who have played or coach the game have always seen a coach on the line or on the field is it illegal yes is Tomlin the only coach guilty HELL NO…..fine every coach the same amount if you fine him because it will happen again

    What is so great about the 6th Lombardi…is that it is the LAST Lombardi.

    ————————————————-
    So what if it is the last ? We have nothing left to prove, we have won six Superbowls. One Lombardi for most teams is a dream. Pittsburgh has six Lombardi trophies, played in eight SuperBowls and Steeler Nation has enjoyed every tick of every game clock of every game – and we still have six Lombardi trophies in Pittsburgh. Black and Gold – FOREVER !

  14. He should have never been that close to the field anyway & should have gotten a flag…for someone who sits on the competition committee what he did was suspect…Tomlin is over rated he only has won with Cowher’s guys he hasn’t drafted anyone of any significance since he’s been there

    =================================
    How many teams have you been on the past five years? Canty has been in the NFL for nine years and he’s earned the right to form an opinion on matters on the field. He isn’t some paranoid big mouth like Terrell Suggs either, who feels obligated to speak out on everything. Pretty much everyone agrees with Canty that it was a low life move that has no place in football. Of course, the Jayson Kidd crap was also a low life move which has no place in basketball. He was fined $50,000. Since Tomlin’s move was more dangerous and involved play on the field, $250,000 is more fitting. He should also be banished from the sideline for one or two games. If you can’t behave on the sidelines, you don’t belong there. Learn a freaking lesson.

  16. Nothing ignorant about questioning why the head coach of an NFL team would stoop so low as to try and trip a player on his way to a touchdown. Ravens players have every right to be outraged. This isn’t the first time a Steeler coach has tried something so despicable. I know Steeler fans want everyone to change the subject, but their team made this bed and now it has to sleep in it. Sweet dreams!

    Report comment. Yes my dreams remain very sweet knowing the a Steelers still control your every thought. Funny how this incident has revived your interest in trolling. With the so so raven season you have been mercifully quite……ssshh go back into hiding skippy.

  18. You know what else was a “low life move”. The hit Smith put on Bell. I am surprised this isn’t as big of a story. Smith should be fined for leading with the crown of his helmet outside the tackle box. That was a low life move. Period, even if it was within the confines of the rules.
