Morning Skate: Call in the National Guard

By Artistry

Pittsburgh police are threatening this morning to boycott the Winter Classic at Heinz Field.  It seems the Steelers, who have a lease on the stadium, are refusing to pay the police their standard holiday rate.  Come on, Pittsburgh police.  Your holiday rate?  2.5 times regular pay.  Tasing unruly Caps fans?  Priceless.


  1. I say we tell the Steelers if they provide us with all the equipment, we'll do it for half the regular pay. I could use the $140 dollars.

    And this is why our city has money problems. We shouldn't have been paying them that kind of money in the past to begin with.

  2. This really isn't surprising in the city that pays bus drivers $90,000 a year.

  3. Those pesky Unions and their contracts. First it was the new security. What's next?
