11/9/2015 7:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Snoop Dogg was pretty fired up after the Steelers game this weekend -- not just because his team won, but he also made $500 off a West Coast rapper who bet on the Raiders. 

Snoop made the 2-to-1 wager with Mac Shawn 100 -- telling the guy he was SO confident Pittsburgh would stomp the Silver and Black, he agreed to pay Mac Shawn $1,000 on a $500 bet.

The game came down to the wire, but the Steelers won ... and after the game, the two rappers engaged in some super stoney smack talk. 

So, what's Snopp gonna do with the victory money? Well, he is on the way to Denver ...

NFL Targets Weed Group You Marijuanafied Our Steelers Logo

10/16/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1015-nfl-weed-club-logo-steelers-TMZ-GETTY-Composite-01You can't turn the Steelers logo into a bunch of marijuana leaves ... or else you'll face the wrath of the NFL ... so says a pot group in Pittsburgh that just got lit up with a nasty legal threat. 

The bud beef is all over the logo for the Pittsburgh chapter of NORML -- a massive nonprofit group dedicated to legalizing weed.  

They've been using a logo similar to the famous Steelers design for years -- with the asteroids swapped out with red, yellow and blue ganja leaves.  

Problem is ... some square at the NFL caught wind of the logo and fired off a cease and desist -- warning the group to 86 the design .. or else! (Guess that paranoia was justified this time). 

Turns out ... the people at NORML are more smokers than fighters and told us they're backing down and plan to change the logo ASAP because they don't want a war with the NFL.

Two NORML honchos, Patrick Nightingale and Jason Cole, tell TMZ Sports they're already coming up with a Pittsburgh-themed replacement logo -- "Maybe Andrew Carnegie holding some weed."

Snoop STOP DOGGIN' MICHAEL VICK 'He Did His Time, Get Over It'

breaking news

0930-snoop-dogg-michael-vick-gettyPeople need to back the hell off of Mike Vick -- and stop giving him hell for his dogfighting past -- so says his good friend Snoop Dogg ... who says, "What y’all gonna do hold it over his head forever?"

Snoop is a HUGE Pittsburgh Steelers fan -- and was asked by Complex Sports how he felt about Vick taking over the team, considering the controversy that still surrounds his 2007 dogfighting conviction. 

Snoop's response was pretty strong ... 

"I love Vick. Before he got to the Steelers. I loved him when he caught the case, [and] after he caught the case. Mistakes are made to be made. I mean, he did his time. What y’all gonna do hold it over his head forever?"

He continued, "It’s over with. He’s been punished, he’s been banned from the league, he came back, he's on the good foot, he ain’t been around dogs, he ain’t do nothing like that."

"He’s been about the positivity and that’s what’s wrong with people. We always judge people about what we did as opposed to what we’re doing. I love him to death whether he’s a Steeler or not. He’s a friend of mine."

Pittsburgh Steelers HEADSET-GATE Team Hurls New Cheating Allegations at Patriots

9/11/2015 6:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0911-tom-brady-bill-getty-01No deflated footballs this time ... but the Pittsburgh Steelers are strongly insinuating the New England Patriots executed a diabolic illegal plan Thursday night to screw Steelers coaches ... involving headsets. 

The Steelers coaches claim their headsets were not properly functioning for the 1st quarter of last night's game ... and they're pointing the finger squarely at the Pats. 

Here's an article that was posted to the Steelers' official website: 

"This is the kind of stuff that happens to the visiting team in Gillette Stadium all the time. From the start of the game through the opening 14 minutes of the first quarter, the Steelers’ coaches’ headsets were receiving the Patriots Radio Network broadcast of the game."

"The broadcast was so loud that the Steelers coaches were unable to communicate, and the NFL rule is that if one team’s headsets are not working the other team is supposed to be forced to take their headsets off."

"It’s what the NFL calls the Equity Rule. Strangely enough, whenever an NFL representative proceeded to the New England sideline to shut down their headsets, the Steelers headsets cleared. Then as the representative walked away from the New England sideline, the Steelers’ headsets again started to receive the Patriots game broadcast."

Headsets, no headsets ... probably wouldn't have stopped Gronk anyway.

0513-bill-crowher-tmz-instagram'Coach' and 'The Chin' weren't enough ... so now Bill Cowher can also go by 'Grandpa' -- his daughter Lindsay and her husband, Lakers forward Ryan Kelly,  just had their first baby.

The baby ... Nile Jeremiah Kelly was born last night, and he's a big boy ... 8.8 lbs. and 22 in. long. 

It's not known if Coach Cowher was actually at the hospital when Lindsay popped, but the ex-Steelers coach took a hands on approach with Lindsay's dating life ... at least according to his son-in-law, Ryan.

So, now that they have a baby boy ... the question: Dad is in the NBA, grandpa's an NFL coaching legend -- do you play football or basketball?

Trick question ... you probably dominate at both. It's in the genes, baby.

New England Patriots Still Favored to Beat Steelers ... Without Brady

breaking news

0511_patriots_steelers_betting_gettyNo Brady? No problem ... because the New England Patriots are still FAVORED to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1 ... according to multiple major Vegas sports books. 

TMZ Sports spoke with honchos at multiple major sports books in Vegas who all told us the same thing -- the Pats were favored by 6.5 before the suspension ... and will be favored by 2-3 points now. 

Tony Miller, the director of the race and sports book at the Golden Nugget, says ... "They're still the Patriots ... and they have a couple of months to get Jimmy Garoppolo ready."

Get this ... we're told most sports books took down the game after the Wells Report -- refusing to take bets because of the possibility of a suspension ... which could impact the line. 

But now, we're told most, if not all, books will start taking action again as soon as today ... with the new odds. 

Good luck.
