If you have been hiding from the sports world since the Ravens loss to the Steelers on Sunday, then you may not know that Terry Bradshaw was on FS1’s show “Speak For Yourself,” and had some not so favorable comments about Steelers’ coach Mike Tomlin:

And Mike Tomlin took to the mic and responded to Bradshaw’s comments, in the classiest way possible:

Mike Tomlin is the definition of a class act. And whether you say he’s a great coach or not, there’s no doubt in my mind he’s a great leader of men. Because anyone who conducts himself like he does will earn his respect from everyone. I fucking hate the Steelers as much as the next Ravens fan, but anyone who hates Mike Tomin is probably just a total asshole themselves. And don’t give me the whole “he tried to trip Jacoby Jones” argument. That was one time, and although it was a shitty move, it doesn’t define his character. And I hate admitting that I like Mike Tomlin. But I do, and I can’t help it.
Also, I LOVE how he took a slight shot at Bill Belichick by saying “guys like Bill in New England can probably say that” when listing who’s a great coach. The word ‘probably’ being the key word there, basically saying I will not bow down to Belichick like everyone else. I love it.
