Steelers Coach Calls on Women to Falsely Accuse Running Backs of Rape

tomlinfalserape[1]PITTSBURGH – Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin came under fire from men’s rights groups when he said it is “the civic duty” of the city’s women to falsely accuse the team’s running backs of rape.

Tomlin said he’s counting on false rape accusations to jump-start the Steelers’ moribund running game in much the same way that Andrea McNulty’s rape claim appears to have lit a fire under quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger passed for 363 yards and engineered the 18th comeback victory of his six-year career to defeat the Tennessee Titans last Thursday.

Men’s rights groups condemned Tomlin’s invitation as “barbaric.” NOW president Rosacea Swayne said she would “make a few calls and see what I can do” for the coach.
