Re: Will James Harrison be suspended? Is the NFL out to get the Steelers?
Word on the street is that James Harrison will be suspended for a game or two. So we know he will be suspended now it's all about how long now.
Is the NFL out to get the Steelers, I don't like to feed into conspiracy theories but I can only compare it to the NBA and Dennis Rodman. It seemed like the refs in the NBA was always looking for something to suspend him for. Anything he would do warranted him a fine or suspension and it was b/c throughout his career he built a reputation for certain behavior.
The Steelers aren't Dennis Rodman but they have a reputation of hard hitting. The NFL are fining players for hard hitting, not illegal hits for the most part.
If you hit someone hard it can be clean but if it looks bad the refs are going to flag you. That's just the way it is now.
