Default Re: Steelers' Harrison fined ... again - $20K this time

i like how Bernard Pollard ends two guys' seasons with questionable plays and nobody says anything, yet James Harrison is the one getting crucified in the media as a cheap shot artist. gotta love the double standard by the NFL and media. not hard to see the bias there.

Harrison is watched by the media now on anything he does.
which means Goodell has to watch him because he can bring unwanted attention to the NFL

Goodell's biggest problem has been his spineless stance towards the media.
He has been reactionary instead of someone who stands up to them

If he had simply said we will deal with this situation instead of kowtowing to the media it wouldn't be as serious as it is today

who eve heard of the NFL instituting rules changes mid season?

i wish the commish had some backbone towards the media

but more importantly like Troy said and I have been saying the Commish has too much power and the NFLPA was stupid to allow Goodell final say on things

The reason the media and NFL are jumping all over Harrison is because of his unapologetic attitude after the Brown's hit.

If this kind of irrational sporadic penalizing and intense scrutinizing holds up I wouldn't be suprised to see Harrison suspended this season or retired next season. It'd be unfortunate because he's just a plain mean linebacker that I love seeing on the team. I'm confident we can replace him, we always seem to replace our OLB's, but he's be missed for sure.

Just like they did back in the day when football was "real".
How will doing what you state stop helmet to helmet hits?

You can line up your shoulder perfectly for the hit and still have the ball carrier drop his head only to hit helmet to helmet while still wrapping up. You head is connected to your shoulders and will always be in front of your shoulders as your body angle will create that. No one tackles straight up and down.

The powers that be just are full of it. This rule is a stupid one and if kept will force the game to become two hand touch. Ball carriers will be running over D players soon as D players will not be able to have any leverage to complete a tackle.
