    NFL Asst Coach accidently sends pornographic email... to EVERY GM!

    I searched, but didn't see this anywhere...

    MISADVENTURES IN E-MAIL

    A league source tells us that an assistant coach with an NFL team attempted on Friday to forward a pornographic e-mail.

    If his goal was to send it to every General Manager in the league, he was successful.

    The list also included their secretaries.
    Oh, and the Commissioner got it, too.

    We know who the coach is, but we're not going to reveal the name until we get confirmation from one more source as to the coach's identity.

    Said the source:
    "I'm really shocked it hasn't hit the papers.
    Someone is doing a great job covering it up.
    But the whole league knows about it."

    Who says the offseason gets boring after the draft?
    And the follow up

    MORE ON THE E-MAIL MESS

    A league source has shared with us some more information regarding the pornographic e-mail message that was sent to a whole host of high-level team employees.

    For starters, the message wasn't sent only to all General Managers -- it was sent to everyone who has been added to the league's "All General Managers" e-mail distribution list.
    And that list includes everyone that the teams chose to put on the list.


    Plus their secretaries.

    We're also told that the sender attempted several times to recall the message, but was unsuccessful.
    We're also told that the sender later circulated an apology.

    And here's where the situation gets potentially more intriguing.
    The assistant coach who sent the e-mail had been forwarded the message by a member of the team's front office.


    We have confirmed the identify of the coach who sent the message, and of the front office employee who had sent it to him.
    And we're currently wrestling with whether or not we should disclose the names.


    Should we?
    Shouldn't we?
    We welcome your input.

    All I can say is God help us if this turns out to be the Vikes.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    I am surprised they haven't leaked it yet.

    It can't be a Viking AC, or we would already know the identity.

    And how do I get on that mailing list?


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    Steelers

    IT'S TIME TO NAME NAMES

    We've given this matter due consideration.
    We've pondered.
    We've deliberated.
    We've (thanks in advance, Tiki) excogitated.

    And we've received more than 600 e-mails from readers in little more than two hours on the topic.

    We've decided to disclose the names of the persons involved in the Friday e-mail fiasco.

    Here's why.
    In announcing the new Personal Conduct Policy last month, the NFL pointed out that non-players would be held to an even higher standard than those who wear the uniform:
    "The standard of socially responsible conduct for NFL employees will be higher.
    Club and league employees will be held to a higher standard than players.
    Conduct that undermines or puts at risk the integrity and reputation of the NFL will be subject to discipline, even if not criminal in nature."
    (Emphasis added.)

    It's not for us to decide whether the underlying actions in this case (i.e., the forwarding of a "very hard-core," as one league source described it, pornographic video clip via a team's e-mail system) justifies punishment.
    But how will the personal conduct policy as applied to non-players have any meaning at all if the issue is ignored?

    So in the interests of breaking from an apparent effort by the "real" media to brush this one under the rug in the hopes of scoring points with a new coaching regime, we believe it's fair and appropriate to disclose that (via at least three NFL sources) the e-mail in question was inadvertently sent to multiple high-level team employees and their secretaries by offensive line coach Larry Zierlein of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    The e-mail message had been forwarded to him by Doug Whaley, the Steelers director of personnel.
    Whaley had received the video from someone outside of the organization, and Whaley forwarded it to multiple other persons, including Zierlein.

    Again, it's not for us to decide whether this behavior runs afoul of the new personal conduct policy as applied to coaches and front office personnel.
    Assuming, however, that the NFL has a written policy regarding the use of company computer equipment for personal endeavors, the use of the steelers.com domain to forward the video in question surely was a violation.

    There's also a strong strategic aspect at work here.
    As one source observed, if the ticket manager had done this, he'd already be out the door.
    With NFL-level offensive line coaches not readily available to be hired in late May, Zierlein will likely get a pass.
    Ditto for Whaley, a respected personnel exec and a key contributor to the success of the franchise over the past several years.

    And we don't think it's a terminable offense, even though we're certain that other employers in other industries wouldn't think twice about firing someone for this.

    With all that said, the case provides an excellent opportunity for the league to educate its employees as to what does (and what does not) amount to a violation of the revised conduct policy.
    If action is taken, then the conduct was over the line.
    If no action is taken, then this isn't the kind of stuff that falls within the scope of the murky standard of overall personal behavior.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Looks like Tomlin still has to deal with off-field issues. I wonder how he is going to handle it?
