Default Harrison fined $75k, labeled a repeat offender

OK I'll set the over -under for personal fouls called against Silverback next Sunday at 1.5. for the next four games combined I'll set it at 5

Odds of him being ejected at least once in thje next four games, even money.

Point is, is anyone other than me convinced the league is going to have Harrison targeted by the refs? I'm usually not one of those in the, out to get us camp but Harrisons' candid and honest lack of remorse in addressing last Sunday's hits I think puts the league's spotlight directly on him. And I'm convinced if he as much as sneezes on anyone they're throwing their flag.

assholes already have him labeled a repeat offender and will definitely suspend him next time it happens.

NFL fines James Harrison $75,000; Dunta Robinson $50,000
Posted by Michael David Smith on October 19, 2010 4:29 PM ET
Shortly after news broke that Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather has been fined $50,000 for helmet-to-helmet hits, two of his fellow NFL headhunters have also learned that their paychecks will be docked significantly.

Steelers linebacker James Harrison has been fined $75,000 for a hit on Browns receiver Mohamed Massaquoi, while Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson has been fined $50,000 for hitting DeSean Jackson.

That's $175,000 in fines for three players, for one afternoon of football.

According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Harrison's fine was the biggest because he's a repeat offender.

Default Re: Over/under personal fouls called on silverback?

he wont get a holding call against him for the rest of the year. the league has probably sent memos to 31 teams that it is open season on his knees.

this is the same as the hines ward rule and the ryan clark rule. before we know it, there will be a casey hampton rule limiting the DL's weight.

that's crap, robinson's hit was way worse than harrison's, he should get fined more. harrison looked like he was trying to avoid a helmet hit by shoving instead of leveling him with a shoulder hit which would have been much worse.

The NFL is fixed.

I happen to agree with the fines. EXCEPT Harrison's. That was just a bit much. 50 grand I could have lived with. OY! Why is it that everyone seems to want to make examples of the Steeler players? Is the league really THAT jealous of us????

We should start up a fund for the fines, cause that's gonna happen again. One announcer said Massaquoi was a defenseless reciever, he was looking for the ball not who was coming. So are the defensive players just suppose to let the recievers catch the ball now and wait to tackle them. All these rule changes geared toward the offense is getting a little ridiculous.

A big chunk of that fine was for Harrison's post-game quotes where he refused to express remorse

More ad hoc changes of standards from Goodell, this time to deal with a PR fire set by Rodney Harrison and Saint Tony Dungy (who is becoming an increasingly tired caricature of moral rectitude whom we are supposed to forget coached a pretty physical crew in Tampa prior to moving on to coach flag football in Indianapolis while bi***ing about players not letting Peyton Maning complete every pass)

If I were in Silverback's position i would tell the media I am done talking

But what James said was true, he said he didn't want to injure anyone, but hurt them. Anyone with a brain knows what he meant, the media just played up the hurt comment. It's football and it's his job to have that attitude.
