John Harbaugh pushes photographer before postgame handshake with Jim

John Harbaugh photographer

Jim Harbaugh has been a part of heated handshakes many times before, but it was actually his brother John who was part of an incident after the Super Bowl ended on Sunday.

As he was walking on the field to meet Jim for a postgame handshake following the Baltimore Ravens’ 34-31 win over the San Francisco 49ers, John Harbaugh got physical with a photographer.

In the bottom right corner of this video, John can be seen pushing a photographer:

The video does not show what preceded the contact. It’s quite possible that the photographer was invading his space in some way or even initiated contact, but John sure had an emphatic response.

As far as the handshake between the brothers went, it was brief and appeared cordial. That couldn’t have been an easy moment for either of them.

H/T Game On!

    What would you expect when they play the game politically by going back to that craphole called the Superdome? I’ll tell you why,Because its called the Mercedes Benz Super Dome and about the Billionaires calling the shots,Why not let Americas fans vote on the venue?In 05 during Katrina everyone was crapping in that place and its still a craphole!

    Give the guy a break. In a highly emotional situation like the SuperBowl having the lights go out hurt the momentum of the game. Pissing and moaning?? That’s your take. Frustrated was mine. As for the reporter, too bad. They swarm like bees and if he got pushed out of the way it’s because he was much too close. I don’t blame him for giving him a shove. Personal space is to be respected and when you invade it you’re going to get pushed back. The media doesn’t act respectfully and can be very aggressive. Who are they to complain when they get a little taste of their own medicine!

    I absolutely agree with your sentiment. It’s about the revenues pouring into New Orleans, party central. I think the place is disgusting. I read that next year they’re looking at New York/New Jersey. Anything would be better than New Orleans.

    Both of these brothers are intense men but watching him shove that photographer is despicable. I enjoyed the game with family and friends but would never want to be in the company of these two men. No need for such a spectacle at halftime, I’m sure that had an impact on the so-called overloaded electrical grid in the dome. Play the games outdoors just as some of those teams had to do leading up to the Super Bowl. Let’s watch the game being played in the elements just as they were before the Super Bowl gained preeminance

    Thank goodness we were able to see Jim have his little meltdown complete with tearing his headphones off, throwing down his papers.
