He has given multiple concussions in the past 3 years with his hits. The league is trying to stop concussions. Perhaps the suspension was the only way to send the message to players who don't react to monetary penalties.

Don't know if he will change his ways, but for the sake of your team, I hope he does.
What sport did you watch before football?

+1 Harrison could have destroyed McCoy with a solid and perfectly legal hit, but instead kept his head high and put a shot right in his face.

I don't believe that the hit warranted a suspension, but it was still a very poor decision by Harrison to stay high like he did.

My question is what do you think Tomlin says? Some of the Steeler beat writers seem to be taking the high road.
Herm's not the only one, every ex player I saw talking about it was on Harrison's side: Dieon, Faulk, Keyshawn, and Herm. It's only these "writers" that were calling for a suspension, you know, the guys who have never played a play in football. As for Tomlin, he will say nothing because he is limited. What's more dissapointing is the Rooneys will continue to say/do nothing.

Yes, goodness knows, he needs to play clean. Like Ray Lewis.







Kindly take that bullshit elsewhere.

it's hard to change something you've been trained to do since day 1. I've played safety/corner from pee wee leagues to high school, and they always taught us to lead with the helmet in between the numbers.

of course if you really wanted to put the hurt on someone or establish your dominance, you'd hit them in the grill. this usually flies up to college and you don't get penalized for it until you're in the pro leagues. but telling someone to change something they did for the last 15+ years isn't automatic

Just listened to the talking heads on First Take and Bayless (of all people) says that the suspension is too much and that the hit wasn't a punishable hit.

Mangini and Steven A. both think it's too light and should have been two games because of Harrison's record and the warnings he's received. Bayless argues that the warning don't change the fact that the hit itself wasn't out of line and THAT is what I think is missing here.

Just because Harrison has done things like this in the past doesn't automatically make this a bad hit. It IS possible for someone with a bad reputation to do good things or to do things within the rules and not every single hit has to be judged against his history.

I'm appalled, disgusted, and feel like thowing up.
I knew this was coming, but it doesn't make it feel any better.
This wasn't someone who spit in somebody's face, or punched someone in the face, or bodyslammed someone on purpose. This was a 'bang-bang' play on the field......it happens.
Truly a disgusting, hall-of-shame moment for the history of the NFL. I don't know what else to say.

I know that he has a reputation and all that but if a questionable hit is supposed to be judged on its merit, I'd say James' hit was borderline at best and may have warranted a fine but that's it. A borderline hit cannot be made more severe just because it was Harrison doing the hitting.

At least it wasn't two games because if it was then the NFL would be saying that James' hit was as bad as Suh's assault and that would have probably resulted in death threats against Goodell.

As far as San Fran is concerned, I think we'll be OK without Harrison, especially since we didn't have him for a few games already this year and we survived.

But still...
So whats this tell you? Someones out to get somebody doesnt it?

also, an appeal should be just that. An appeal. With a chance of getting a ruling over-turned.

Unfortunately, in this communist-like dictatorship, an appeal is a complete joke, a waste of time, and not really "an appeal".
Just despicable. Shame on the NFL. I'm calling their office and telling them that my NFL subscription is canceled (i'll watch the pirated telecasts online) and that i'll never buy a piece of NFL licensed merchandise again. Ever.
