After the Baltimore Ravens 21-7 victory over the Tennessee Titans yesterday, HC John Harbaugh took a shot at the Pittsburgh Steelers in the locker room after the game, letting his team know that the team that beat them last week, went out and got destroyed by the 2-8 New York Jets this week.
Before Harbaugh made the comments, he requested CBS not to air the comments, a request that was denied by CBS and was aired anyways. Leaving the Ravens and their coach very upset. After CBS played the footage, Ravens team officials were very upset and released a statement condemn CBS for airing something that was only for coaches and players to hear.
CBS has since pulled the video and has apologized for the incident, “We broadcast-ed a clip during our postgame show that should have aired,” said CBS Sports spokesperson Jennifer Sabatelle. “We immediately pulled it down and called the Baltimore Ravens to apologize.”
SportsGrid’s Eric Goldschein published the full video of Harbaugh’s remarks.
The Baltimore Ravens sit in third place in the AFC North at 6-4 as they head into their bye week before taking on the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football in Week 12.
Should the Ravens and the NFL take action CBS for airing this clip after being requested not to?
