Okay...sooo, Johnson & Finnegan get fined the same amount for their all-out street brawl, which was shown over and over on sports channels......but word out there is that the NFL didn't want to suspend Johnson because it would "hurt" the interest for the Texans next game against the Eagles?! What kind of ?#@_ is that!? Add in .... "just" making Seymour pay a fine for decking Ben.....and really makes it look like double-standards do apply here when it comes to "illegal hits" by the Steelers D ...... mainly Harrison........the ppl
in charge really needs to set a better example........on being "fair"

I agree it would be professional, and probably financial suicide if he did this. But it would be so out of character and a well deserved F U to der commissioner.

I don't really want him to do it. What I really want can't be posted on a public forum.

It's all BS Goodell has ruined this game. Harrison's hit was clean. Where the f%&* can you hit a QB now anyway? If it's Harrison, the answer is NO where!!!

I think the Commish should at least provide a flag worn by opposing QBs for James to pull. This would be a special "Harrison" flag that only James Harrison must pull to "sack" an opposing QB. This will be rolled out with the new bullzeye to be painted on Big Ben's jersey that has the words "Sucker Punch Only $25k" where his name used to appear.

Also, I think the Rooney's should give Harrison a bonus in the amount of his fines at the end of this year. This action will be in line with the Patriots who provided Belicheat with a $750k bonus after he was fined for spygate (the bonus being higher than the fine).

What's going in Pittsburgh? What's the word on the street? I imagine the airwaves have been lighting up. Has the club come out and said anything to the local media?

They've been pretty quiet aside from a couple of generic Tomlin comments. Anything said has been said behind closed doors to the league.
Any fan at this point, although, has to wonder where Mr. Rooney's mind is at and what he thinks about all this....and what if any action he has taken behind the scenes. He most certainly can't be happy with all of this.

After a big sack or hit, I think he should just hold his hand out and air-sign it like he was signing a real one.

Normally I hate Suggs...but it's nice to see players from other teams chime in about this. I'm not surprised at all that it's a hard hitting Ravens player that agrees that Harrison is basically getting the shaft.

Ravens' Suggs says Harrison has been 'red-flagged'
By Mark Kaboly, TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Wednesday, December 1, 2010

Terrell Suggs can’t bring himself to feel bad for anybody who plays for the Steelers, but the Pro Bowl linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens can’t help but feel that James Harrison is getting a raw deal from the NFL.

Suggs said during today’s conference call with the Pittsburgh media that there has been injustice with Harrison when it comes to being fined by the league.

“Your guy over there, 92, I think he is red-flagged,” Suggs said. “The referees are kind of looking for him. Even if he breathes on a quarterback wrong, he might get a flag.”

Harrison was fined for the fourth time this season yesterday when he was fined $25,000 for a hit put on Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Harrison has been fined $125,000 so far this season.

“I think they are looking at him more closely than they are everybody else in the league,” Suggs said. “In the referee world, they kind of red-flagged him.”

Suggs also went on to say that quarterbacks like New England’s Tom Brady and Indianapolis’ Peyton Manning get preferential treatment over other quarterbacks in the league.

“The league has their favorites,” Suggs said. “One being in Indy and one being with that other team up north. Besides those two, everybody is fair game. Some quarterbacks are getting the calls right away. Some quarterbacks they don’t care.

"Like I always said, Carson Palmer got hit in his knee in 2005 but there was no rule made. Then Tom Brady got hit in his knee and all of a sudden there is a rule and possible suspensions, excessive fines — it’s just getting ridiculous.”
