Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin called the NFL's officiating a joke after Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons and in return, the National Football League has fined him $25,000 according to Jarrett Bell of USA Today.

"But some of the other stuff, man, is a joke", Tomlin told reporters.

It's important to note that Tomlin is on the NFL's competition committee and is part of the group who works on these sort of rule changes. He called it a joke and showed some emotion in his press conference we hadn't seen in some time from him. "These penalties are costing people games and jobs".

The NFL fined Tomlin $25,000 on Wednesday for his critical comments after that game. "We've got to get them correct". And so I'm pissed about it, to be quite honest with you.

"I'll say this, I said what I said after the game, I meant it, but I have no further comment".

Asked about linebacker Bud Dupree's two face mask penalties in Sunday's game, Tomlin said the calls looked legitimate, then hinted many more were not.

"I said what I said after the game", he said, per USA Today.

Tomlin is not the first person to criticize the NFL's officiating this year, but the head coach was highly outspoken on Sunday.

The Steelers (2-2-1) will travel to Cincinnati (4-1) for an NFC North matchup against the Bengals on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
