'He Did His Time, Get Over It'

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."

Team Hurls New Cheating Allegations at Patriots

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.

I'm Grandpa Now

To a Baby Laker

breaking news

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

5/11/2015 3:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

Steelers' William Gay

1-Man Shirtless Dance Party

Steelers cornerback William Gay is taking that whole "dance like no one is watching" thing to new levels ... doing a shirtless dance revue on Instagram ... and we got to say ... dude's got the moves.

Gay -- for reasons we're not sure of -- posted five different videos to the 'gram of him (quite expertly) executing every hot dance move out there including The Whip, The Jook, and the death-defying Bobble Walk.

He even got in a couple of real life inspired joints, including Rich Homie Quan's signature onstage waddle, and his teammate Antonio Brown's touchdown dance The Beanie Wiggle.

Watch, enjoy, but please ... don't try this at home.

Steelers Star Antonio Brown

Check Out My $600 Hat

Pharrell Ain't Got Nothin' On Me

1/31/2015 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Pharrell Williams has officially passed the wide brim hat torch to a guy who torches defenses ... Steelers star Antonio Brown tells TMZ Sports his fashion forward lid set him back over $600!

Brown is with the rest of the sports world at the Super Bowl in Arizona so when our camera guy ran into the always dapper Pro Bowler we had to ask ... dude, what's with the hat?

That's when Brown swagged us out a little bit, telling us that his fancy lid wasn't any regular dome-shielder ... this one put a $600 dent in his $42 million pockets.

One more thing ... we're not fashion experts ... and far be it for us to question a man's right to expression, but ...

We're pretty sure he's wearing the hat backwards.

Hines Ward

Single NFL Players ...

Have Bullseyes On Their Backs

1/26/2015 2:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Young, rich, single NFL players better get chicks to sign contracts before taking them out on dates ... at least that's how former Steelers superstar Hines Ward sees it. 

The ex Super Bowl champ went on Meredith Vieira's talk show and said single NFL players are being targeted by conniving women. Ward's point seemed to be that these women are falsely accusing players in domestic violence cases.  

Pretty bold statement -- and Ward even went on to suggest single players get something in writing with their dates.

As for the Ray Rice case -- Ward took a very strong stance against Ray ever returning to the NFL.
