10/21/2016 6:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Never fear, Steeler fans ... Snoop Dogg has a explanation for Big Ben's injury ... and a GUARANTEE for Sunday's big game against the hated New England Patriots.

We got Snoop out in L.A. -- on his birthday no less -- and asked about his dinged-up QB and the limp he's been sporting since reportedly tearing a meniscus against Miami.

Snoop says not to worry ... the limp ain't nuthin' but a thang ... a G thang ... and that Steeler nation is gonna be A-Ok while their captain is out.

Bonus smack talk? He GUARANTEES victory over the Pats Sunday ... and even calls Tom Brady out by name.

NFL's Robert Golden Sues Wedding Planner You Sent My Guest To The Hospital!!

10/16/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1014-robert-golden-GETTY-01Pittsburgh Steelers safety Robert Golden is going after the company he hired to plan his wedding, 'cause he says they wrecked his big day ... and were even responsible for sending a guest to the hospital.

According to court docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Golden says he hired Genesis Master of Events last year to help him and his fiancee plan his July 2nd nuptials in Fresno, CA.

Golden says it was 102 degrees on the day of their wedding -- and the company failed to tell them that the AC was broken inside their reception venue, The Fresno Ballroom.

In the docs, Golden says at least 60 of their guests left early 'cause of the heat. He also claims his wife had to change out of her wedding dress early ... and the ice sculpture and cake "were melted and unusable."

The NFLer says it was so hot several guests had to receive IVs the next day ... and one guest was admitted to the hospital for severe dehydration. 

To top it all off -- Golden says the company won't hand over their wedding pictures, videos or gifts that guests delivered to their office before and after the wedding.

Golden is suing Genesis Master of Events for an unspecified amount.

We reached out to GMOF for comment -- so far, no word back.

10/14/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012-Cam-Heyward-Steelers-Prime-Society-bags-launchIf it looks like the Pittsburgh Steelers defense has baggage ... it's because Cam Heyward just hooked everyone up with $15,000 in Couture backpacks ... TMZ Sports has learned.

To show his love to his defensive unit, Heyward hit up Prime Society Boutique and locked down 31 personalized Crown Collection backpacks, which run about $500 a pop.

Plus, he also hooked up the guys with toiletry bags and elevation masks (training first!) ... and we're told it was all because he just wanted to show the guys he appreciates 'em.

It also helps that Cam signed a 6 year, $60 million contract last year!

We'll see if the excitement translates onto the field when the Steelers face off against the Dolphins this Sunday.

Verne Troyer Defends Antonio Brown ... NFL Fines Are 'B.S.'

10/13/2016 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Antonio Brown's good friend, Verne Troyer, is LASHING OUT at the NFL over the fines AB's been hit with for his cleats and his endzone celebrations ... saying the punishment is a bunch of "bulls***."

Troyer isn't just a Steelers superfan -- but he's tight with Brown and was his VIP guest at a game earlier this season. 

So, when we asked about the NFL cracking down on Brown's customized cleats (which have featured AB's kids and tributes to greats like Muhammad Ali) ... the "Austin Powers" star went off.

1007-antonio-brown-new-cleats-TWITTER-01He floats like a butterfly ...

He stings like a bee ...

Which is why Antonio Brown's new custom cleats are paying tribute ... to Muhammad Ali!!! 

The Pittsburgh Steelers superstar is planning to make another statement with his feet on Sunday -- with cleats featuring images of the legendary boxer. 

1007-antonio-brown-new-cleats-TWITTER-02They've even got images of a bee and a butterfly, thanks to artist Corey Pane -- the same guy who designed AB's Arnold Palmer cleats from last weekend. 

By the way, that's a lot of pressure to put Ali on your cleats -- make him proud! 

Verne Troyer New Good Luck Charm Hanging with Antonio Brown!

Exclusive Details

1003_verne_troyer_steelers_fans_game_photos_launchVerne Troyer lived out a lifelong dream as a die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan ... meeting all the players after watching them whoop-up on the Kansas City Chiefs at Heinz Field.

Verne's loved the Steelers since the '70s but never got to a game, so superstar wide receiver Antonio Brown made it happen. We're told Verne watched football with AB all day at his house, then scored pregame sideline passes.

He headed to Brown's suite to watch the Sunday night matchup -- a dominating 43-14 Steelers victory -- and hung out with the team afterward. Check out the pics ... he even met Bob Costas (guess who's taller).

Antonio says Verne brought him good luck -- he scored 2 TDs -- so there's a good chance he'll be back later this season. Keep your Terrible Towel handy, Verne!

Thanks @ab for the ball! #herewego #steelersnation @steelers

Antonio Brown Gets 'Arnold Palmer Tribute' Cleats ... Hail to 'The King'

9/30/2016 12:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0930-Antonio-Brown-Arnold-Palmer-cleats-tmz-sportsFresh off the heels of a cleat controversy, Antonio Brown just had ANOTHER sick pair of kicks custom made for his next game ... a tribute to golf legend Arnold Palmer

We spoke with Brown who tells us he went to his cleat guy, Corey Pane, and asked for something that would show his respect to "The King." 

The results speak for themselves. 

Remember, Brown got into some trouble with the NFL officials last week for custom blue cleats that had images of his kids painted on them. He was told to change them at halftime or else ... in part due to the colors not matching the Steelers uniform. 

These new cleats happen to be in Steelers colors -- so hopefully he'll avoid any sort of drama ... especially since they're super dope. 


Snoop Dogg Recreates Antonio Brown's TD Dance ... Crotch Thrusts, Baby!

9/13/2016 7:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Snoop Dogg LOOOVED Antonio Brown's twerkalicious touchdown dance Monday night -- in fact, Snoop busted out a version of his own right after the game! 

"You see that dance he did??? He just f***ed 'em," Snoop said.

"That was a cold dance move! I want to do it myself!" 

Antonio got flagged for his dance. Snoop got high after his. 

NFL's DeAngelo Williams Damn Right I Stiffed Waitress ... 'Service Was Horrible' (UPDATE)

update_graphic_red_bar7:52 AM PT -- More bad news for the server ... 

TMZ Sports spoke with Jimmy Marcos -- co-owner of Ledo Restaurant in Maryland -- who tells us DeAngelo's server will be TERMINATED over her handling of the tip situation. 

Long story short ... we're told the restaurant policy is "the customer is always right" and tipping is a reflection of the service -- not mandatory. 

"We were in the wrong," Marcos says.

He also has a message for Williams -- "I want to offer anything I can do. I'll be sure to apologize in person next time he visits and pick up his next meal."update-grey-gray-barPittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams is blasting restaurant workers who called him out on social media for not tipping ... saying point-blank -- THEY SUCKED AT THEIR JOBS. 

It all started when the bartender at the restaurant went to Facebook and wrote:

"Just now at work I had Deangelo Williams come in and I waited on while tending bar. His check was $128.25. He left me $129 with no tip but .75 cents. So there you go Stealers fans, your running back is cheap as s**t!!! Smh."

Williams found out about the social media shaming and lashed back -- claiming the service was so terrible, a 75 cent tip was TOO GENEROUS. 

"I tried to leave exact change but couldn't," Williams said ... "I waited on my food for over 1.5 hours."

(For the record, the waitress claims he was only there for 45 mins). 

So, what was allegedly so bad?

For starters, "She never asked for refills," Williams says.

But what really pissed him off -- "I ordered chicken and shrimp in my pasta they put it on my salad."

When he pointed out the mistake, "They took it back and removed it from salad and put It in my pasta leaving a shrimp tail in the salad."

Williams says "terrible service" means terrible tip. 

"I use to wait tables and use to be a bag boy so I know what I'm doing here."


NFL's William Gay Loses Big By Winning ... Credit Card Roulette

8/26/2016 7:04 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NFL player William Gay just learned a very important life lesson ... sometimes when you win, you completely freakin' lose in a major way ... especially when the game is credit card roulette.

Gay and his Pittsburgh Steelers teammates went out to dinner recently and the whole group of very large -- and probably very hungry -- athletes decided to settle the bill by playing credit card roulette.

If you don't know what that is ... it's when everyone who ate puts their card in a hat ... and the one that gets drawn has to foot the entire bill.

That was the story for William ... and James Harrison made sure to document the entire thing on video.

Tough break ... where's a rookie when you need one?

Now that Ryan Fitzpatrick has reportedly re-signed with the Jets, Brandon Marshall is getting all sorts of cocky ... betting HIS PORSCHE that he'll have more receiving yards this year than Antonio Brown

"If you have more receiving yards than me, I'll give you the Porsche ... if I have more recieving yards than you, then you gotta give me the Rolls-Royce."

So far, no response from Antonio ... but you can't imagine he's gonna back down from this!

Steelers GM Martavis Bryant At 'Crossroads In Life' ... After Drug Suspension

Breaking News

0314-martavis-bryant-GETTY-01The Pittsburgh Steelers are "disappointed" in wide receiver Martavis Bryant -- who's been suspended for at least one year after failing a drug test -- and say the 24-year-old is at a crossroads in his life. 

Bryant just announced that he would be dropping his appeal of the suspension and begin to serve his punishment immediately -- and Steelers GM Kevin Colbert says the guy needs to take the time for some serious self reflection. 

"We are very disappointed that Martavis Bryant has put himself in this current situation of being suspended by the League," Colbert says. 

"He is at a crossroads of his professional life, and he needs to understand significant changes need to occur in his professional life if he wants to regain his career as a Pittsburgh Steeler."

"We are hopeful that Martavis will take the necessary steps to develop the discipline in his personal life to become a successful player and a good teammate."

Bryant had previously missed 4 games in the 2015 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. He went to rehab and worked with famed NBA coach John Lucas ... but was unable to stay on the wagon.
