Schwartz, HarbaughPosted by Josh Katzowitz

You have almost certainly seen  the video of Jim Harbaugh exuberantly shaking Jim Schwartz’s hand and you watched as Schwartz responded in anger. You have heard Ryan Wilson and Will Brinson talk about it on their podcast. You have read Brinson’s take on the top five coaches you’d want in a steel-cage death match beside you.

The only thing left was to wait for the league to decide the punishment on Schwarbaugh-gate (you prefer Harwartz-gate instead?).

And now we have our answer: no punishment, says the NFL.

“On Detroit-SF coach incident, fortunately, there was no fighting and thus no basis for a fine,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tweeted in a statement. “However, both coaches told Ray Anderson today that their post-game conduct was wrong and will not happen again. We believe their response is the correct one and that their post-game conduct going forward will be more appropriate.”

Harbaugh told reporters today, via Rapid Reporter Michael Erler, that he spoke with the league about the incident.  “It was a fact-finding mission for them, and I shared my side of it,” Harbaugh said. He also said that he would speak with Schwartz privately but that he would not apologize.

How is this guy still ALLOWED to INSULT anyone who does not agree with his POINT OF VEIW.Which is USUALLY WRONG.

Who the hell said THE 49ERS LILLED the Lions,NEWSFLASH winning by 1 points or 40 gets you the same RESULT.

What would you know about a CHEERLEADER anyway,and FOR THE 100TH TIME everyone agrees Harbaugh went
over the top,but I am sure that EXCITED HC'S have done this before,but never in the HISTORY of the NFL,has
one coach chased another 50 YARDS.

And wow 5-1 what does that get any team,it is a good start but if they do not finish it then what.I think he meant
that Lions fans after so many years of losing are DISGRUNTLED that they would not go 16-0 like  some of you thought


Dude, are you a stalker??? Everywhere Redwing goes, you are just waiting to get at him, I dont get it. This is at least the 4th or 5th thread that I have seen you on talking about the guy. I would be worried, worried that you are actually going to find him. Let it go dude, I dont agree with the way everybody talks to ppl either, but I just let it go. Wow, get a grip man, and ppl can handle themselves, you dont have to defend every comment that Redwing says to somebody else. You either have way too much time on your hands, or you actually let somebody on the computer, that you dont know, get you this upset about absolutely NOTHING. Either way, let it go, just let it go. The world is going to continue to spin, he has changed NOTHING in your life, unlees of course you have let him.

How do you figure that players get fined for the same thing???? EVERY game in the NFL has shoving of some sort after plays. Players only get fined if a punch is thrown, no punches here, not even shoving IMO.

NFL dropped the ball here.  Goodell and co. love to through fines and discipline to any player for any reason, on or off the field...but coaches who should examples for their players and held to a higher standard, get off with nothing for that spectacle.  Bad move NFL

™CENATION-HLR™ - try watching that video again...Harbaugh did nothing a player doesn't do, doesn't hit him in the head, and it's questionable as to if or what he really said. Over-exuberant yes, horrible? Not in the least. If a hard handshake and slap on the back is your definition of horrible, classless or extremely bad I would like to move to your world as it seems pretty darn cushy... I think they should have gotten fined simply because (A.) they are coaches and should be held to a higher standard and (B.) while no one threw a punch, it was a shoving match and would probably have gotten fines for players, had they instigated a similar event. 

I can't believe how many people over-reacted to Harbaugh. It was an over-excited handshake, he slapped him on the back (like many guys do during a handshake) and then he ran toward his locker room. Nothing to warrant the reaction from Schwartz, and nothing to warrant the terms "classless, horrible, thuggish" being thrown around here...settle down everyone, it was a handshake
