Maybe it's time we call Ambassador Rooney in from Ireland so he can take control of this entire situation. Goodell is a douche, and we all know an ambassador outranks a commissioner, right?
Rooney was the person who picked the people who voted for the new commissioner... I think he should take responsibility for his actions and have Batman kidnapp Goodell.

Make no mistake. James Harrison is as serious as they come. If he's contemplating retirement then he's contemplating retirement.

We need Harrison.

If he retires do we get cap space back? Sign Merriman?

If he does retire doesn't anyone think he is being slightly childish? I know I will.

you've never come home from a bad day at work, where you feel you did your job well, but your superiors didn't?

you never sang along with the song "Take this job and shove it?"

No... I don't think he's being childish. The NFL is.

Default Brady to James Harrison: Please, Retire

“I’d love for him to retire,” Brady joked. “If he retired, it would make me very happy.”

Sure, I've felt that way a lot. But I didn't quit. I'm not saying he's childish for being upset or even wishing he could quit. But if he actually goes through with it then I'd say he is.

Childish? Is James Harrison immature?

James has shown - since the early early days on special teams - that he plays football only one way. THAT CONSISTENCY is indisputable. Period.

If they are taking a part of HIS game away then his prerogative to not play by the new rules should not be reduced to a simple "he is being childish." Workplace changes happen all the time. And people who don't like those changes move on.

It makes me sick to my stomach that with everything going so well for us that an issue of a player doing his job is now a detriment. If Harrison retires then this will be the last DirecTv NFL Sunday Ticket I buy.

It's his choice. I sure hope he at least stays for the rest of the season, but why keep doing something that makes you unhappy if you have other options available?

I wouldn't blame him one bit if he decided to leave. This league is going down the crapper real fast. All Goodell is doing is catering to the average fan (the ones who mainly only tune into Sunday/Monday night games and the Playoffs).

If Harrison needed any motivation to get back in Black & Gold and pin those ears back....

Thanks Tom.

Default Re: Brady to James Harrison: Please, Retire

what a dick.

i cant wait for james to earhole him like he did cribbs.

harrison shouldnt quit or retire. he should deliver brady a devestating blow and get banned for life. (its so much more satisfying)

...or atleast let that game earn him his 1st suspension.
