Potential Steelers Locker Room Controversy (Shampoo vs. Body Wash)

The Pittsburgh Steelers selected Ohio State defensive end Cameron Heyward with their first round pick in the 2011 NFL draft on Thursday. Heyward is the son of the late Craig "Ironhead" Heyward, a former Pitt star and NFL running back. You may also know Ironhead from his Zest body wash commercials like this one.

Now that Cameron Heyward is an NFL player, will he follow in his father's footsteps and be a body wash pitch man? If so, think of the potential controversy in the Steelers' locker room. Troy Polamalu is currently the face, well the hair, of Head & Shoulders. Can a locker room survive with two players promoting separate shower products? Will the veterans side with Polamalu and Head & Shoulders while the rookies support their colleague and Zest? Do they even make Zest body wash anymore? This situation may be coach Mike Tomlin's biggest challenge next season and possibly for years to come.

In case you're wondering, Troy Polamalu took the first shot at the new Steeler on Twitter.

Sure, Troy Polamalu is being nice, but maybe he's just biding his time for a private moment with Heyward.

Troy isn't worried. Just look at me, I'm glorious. Heyward will quickly learn to submit to me.
