Harrison just may be the dumbest guy in the NFL. Check out this pic from the Men's Journal article. With the NFL's stance on guns this is just beyond dumb on his part.

Re: James Harrison Rips Goodell in Interview

The Steelers are having some serious issues with their players right now, however the Hines Ward thing wont turn out to be that big of a deal. I think Ward is a pretty good guy who just made a stupid mistake. However Ben Rapistburger, Mendenhall and Harrison are idiots in my opinion.

The consequences of those kind of hits are real and actual and have been documented to have a profound effect nor just on football players, but from other sports as well--baseball, hockey, pro wresting--it's not good. Especially with a nutjob with a screw lose like Harrison.

I understand the hypocrisy of trying to tack on 2 extra games while talking about health of the players, but I also don't agree with this notion that floats around with some fans that, because some of the moves the league makes to protect players health (after all, this is a business, you want to protect your investment, even if you don't give a shit about your player's health), it constitutes going back to "flag football".

There's still plenty of big hits every week in football that you never ever hear about because they're clean as a whistle and don't cause penalties, and everyone oohhs and awes and cringes. We've seen Renzo, Sellers, even LaRon Landry lay out some HUGE hits that were clean and impactful and "HOLY S**T!" moments that didn't involve some tool going after a guy's noggin.
Preach brother preach! This is why you're the best writer on Bleacher Report (which I realize is a bit of a backhanded compliment but I do like your work)

We don't need more John Mackey situations

Hines Ward is a good guy...who is lucky he hasn't been busted before. He can throw back with the best of them

sorry but if you look around at what the guys are saying that have actually played in the nfl they laugh at goodell and the league office. it's stupid to ask defensive players to do the crap they're asking. it's ruins the game and it costs teams games with some of their stupid calls. most of the hits aren't even head to head, and in a lot of cases the runner ducks HIS head and initiates the head on head contact. that shows me goodell is clueless cause he still fines guys when this happens. these guys that are so worried about the long time health of the players are the ones that turn around and ask them to play two more games. give me a break! harriosn is out of line with his comments but goodell needs to go.

Re: James Harrison Rips Goodell in Interview

Are you guys kidding me? He didn't punch the guy it was an open palm to the guys numbers. Plus the Az. player dove at his knees, a big no no. Looks like fans are getting as soft as the refs and the league office.

I actually like Harrison. He's one mean, tough SOB that intimidates, he reminds me of Greg Lloyd, just the kind of guy you don't want to **** around with. Plus he plays hard and back it up on the field. I like that in a defensive player. Now like I said, not cool ripping your teammates to the media and calling out the commish being on fire and calling him gay or whatever.

Harrison's reaction was simply uncalled for and Madden was right, he should have been tossed for that. Open palm or not, you can't hit someone.

Harrison is a meathead and a thug. No way around it.

Re: James Harrison Rips Goodell in Interview

Facing Goodell for any further disciplinary problems will be a true adventure. I'm sure he will remember. Some of these football players should be one permanent gag-order.

I'm sure the Rooney family is face-palming all over the place today.

Re: James Harrison Rips Goodell in Interview

I have to admit I don't get why there is so much dislike for Goodell. Not that I am some big fan but the level of dislike doesn't seem very rational. Can someone explain it?

I don't get it either, I think he's doing a fine job. He's not perfect but he always seems to have the best interest of the league in mind.

I think some people just hate authority no matter who it is. Not everyone loved Tagliabue or Rozelle either.
