Goodell Up to his usual BS again. :sofunny:

In a move that is sure to convince Steelers fans that the NFL is targeting their team, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has announced that Steelers’ linebacker James Harrison will be fined $75,000 for the helmet-to-helmet hit on Steelers’ tight end Heath Miller.

The tapes clearly showed that Harrison was nowhere near the play. He’s on the same team as Heath Miller, and was clearly standing on the sidelines when Miller was hit by a Baltimore Ravens player. Nevertheless, the NFL has decided to fine Harrison anyway.

“I know that James Harrison doesn’t appear to be involved with the play”, said Roger Goodell. “But it was a helmet-to-helmet hit. Harrison HAD TO BE involved”.

“It’s clear that the referees blew the call. Harrison should have been flagged for the play”, Goodell explained. “Despite the referees’ error, Harrison will not be able to avoid the fine that my office will be issuing on Tuesday”.

Goodell further explained that he considered fining Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for striking Ravens’ lineman Haloti Ngata’s hand with his face. However, Ngata’s hand was not injured on the play, so Goodell refrained from issuing a fine.

No need to get that uppity...

I'll move it to the joke forum though, since it is funny. :thumbsup:
