NFL's Le'Veon Bell If I Was Healthy Steelers Would Be In Super Bowl

2/5/2016 7:37 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

They says it's better to be lucky then good ... and that's exactly what the Broncos are according to Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell ... who says it'd be his team in San Fran if he'd never gotten hurt.

Bell's been out with a knee injury since November and when we saw him at the Madden party at Super Bowl 50 we had to know ... would things have been different if he was 100%? 

Check out the clip -- Bell seems confident that had he and other Steelers been able to give it a go,  it would have been them trying to stop Cam and the gang ... and NOT the Broncos. 

Next year guys ... next year.  

Antonio Brown's Dad My Son Didn't Fake Injury 'It's Not In His Character'

EXCLUSIVE

0111_antonio_brown_gettyPacman Jones can hold on to that Oscar ... or Grammy ... 'cause Antonio Brown's father insists his son is NO ACTOR ... and didn't fake hurt after taking that shot from Vontaze Burfict

TMZ Sports spoke with Eddie Brown who tells us he has already checked in with the Pittsburgh Steelers receiver to make sure he's okay after taking a shot to the head during Saturday's playoff game. 

"He is doing well. I talked to him but I didn't go into detail. I just wanted to make sure he was okay. That was my biggest concern as a father and parent."

We asked what he thought about Pacman accusing his son of faking hurt -- and Eddie told us the thought of Antonio bluffing an injury is simply unfathomable.

"It's not in his character. I don't have to defend him because you can just look at his track record. Check his and then check the track record of the ones accusing him ...  he's taken big hits before and he's gone right back to the huddle."

We also asked if he thought Burfict should be punished by the league for the hit:

"I don't set the rules, My thing is the hit happened and I'm just glad my son is okay and he is going to be playing Sunday. The team who did the hit will be at home watching."

Michael Keaton should've been celebrating after his Pittsburgh Steelers yanked the Bengals' beating hearts out of their chests -- but, NO ... instead he was pissed about Antonio Brown's concussion.

We got Batman/Birdman leaving dinner at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica this weekend, and the only thing on his mind was Vontaze Burfict's illegal hit on the Steeler's superstar receiver in the closing minutes of that wild playoff game.

Superfan Keaton's reaction to Brown's injury? Check out his prognosis ... it ain't pretty.

Exclusive Details

1223-main-anonio-brown-tmz-01Pittsburgh Steelers superstar Antonio Brown had an early Xmas gift for a local high school football team -- taking the entire squad to a screening of "Concussion" ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Brown hooked up the kids at Clairton High School in Pennsylvania -- a team he's essentially adopted since joining the Steelers. 

Clairton head coach Wayne Wade tells us ... Brown organized a bus to take the players to a nearby theater and treated the kids to a night at the movies. 

1223-sub-anonio-brown-tmz-01Wayne says Brown is always doing cool stuff for the high school -- "A couple years ago he paid for the whole team to go to Dave N Busters after the season."

So, why Clairton?? 

"He loves the whole small town, small team, small program thing. We are the winningest program in Pennsylvania, piled up 66 wins in a row (Pennsylvania record), won state championships."

Plus, Wayne played Arena League football with Antonio's dad. 

So, what did we learn today ... people actually ARE going to see movies other than 'Star Wars.'

NFL Targets Weed Group You Marijuanafied Our Steelers Logo

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

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."

Nice.
