Default James

It might have been disgust before, but Im curious to find out why james had punched that guy in the kickoff in the superbowl. I think he has had a fantastic career lately but im wandering why this was done. To any who have watched the SB you know what im talking about. I just gotta know, I like james and the only reason I can think of is the holding that is rarely called for him, atleast I hope.


Also I have read that Harrison has knocked around some people in practice, but Anthony smith did the same thing last year and people were crying it was just practice. There seems to be a double standard right there.

The guy went for Harrisons knees - cheap shot, could've been career ending. Harrison was simply letting his displeasure be known.

Actually he jumped right into Harrison's groin. Harrison didnt 'punch' the guy either, unless you consider an open hand a punch.

It just looked to me like Harrison simply owned Francisco. It was border line brutal, but FYI: football is kind of a contact sport… hence all the pads.

If that was Suggs pushing down Ike Taylor, I would be saying the exact same thing. But what cracks me up is all the crazy talk like this:

“With 3:26 left and the Steelers leading 20-14, Harrison knocked down Cardinal Aaron Francisco, punched him, and shoved him another three times.”

http://www.nowpublic.com/sports/jame...-and-criticism

I watched the play live, still have it on my DVR, and bought the DVD. And I have never seen James Harrison punch Aaron Francisco or shove him three times. This is probably the same person that thinks the refs stole Super Bowl XL.

And Madden didn’t help matters by ostracizing him in front of the largest television audience in the world. If you only heard his call and didn’t actually see the play, you would think Harrison punched him in the throat with his fist.

Go Steelers!

Madden (and haters) went off the deep end with that... I still say there were no rules broken there by Harrison.

No double standard at all. Smith was a loud-mouthed, arrogant wanna be and Harrison is the real deal. Very simple.
