Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin wore his emotions on his sleeve when asked about the headset malfunction on the NFL’s opening night.

To say Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was a little peeved about the headset malfunction during the NFL’s Thursday Night kickoff against the New England Patriots would be a major understatement.

He wasn’t a little peeved. He was downright disturbed.

For much of the first half of his team’s 28-21 loss to Tom Brady and the Pats, Tomlin and his coaching staff had to endure listening to the Patriots radio broadcast in their headsets.

Of course the timing of this malfunction couldn’t more beautiful. Thanks to Deflate-Gate, anything that occurs at Gillette Stadium this season will be heavily scrutinized.

Twitter enjoyed themselves as this story broke.

Although most understand it’s the NFL who control the communication during gameday, anything involving the Pats in Foxborough will raise the antennas. Honestly, would you be surprised if you heard the term “Headset-Gate” rear its ugly head in a couple of days?
