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.
That's how you handle it. Don't buy their crap. Buy it used from ebay or direct from china (i.e. readycheers.com - I have bought a couple jerseys from their site and have had no issues). If you want to buy tickets to a game, buy them from stubhub or ebay, don't use nfl ticket exchange (nfl's attempt to counter ebay and stubhub).

I for one would like a list of the major sponsers so I can begin to boycott them.

I am a season ticket holder, and supporter of my team, and after that my loyalty stops. The nfl and their commish can suck it.

I think Harrison may be on his way out of the league especially if his hits get the team fined. Don't lead with your damn head. Whether you want to agree or not, he lowered his head instead of just leading with a shoulder and wrapping him up. McCoy did not duck into this hit. It was vicious and uncalled for. And I am a HUGE Steeler fan. I would be very careful if I was Ryan Clark. He will be next.
Agreed - Harrison thought he could go helmet to helmet on a QB and, based upon his quotes, apparently thought he could do so once mcCoy left the pocket whether McCoy was a runner or passer. While the hit arguably was legal, Harriosn could have made the tackle without going helmet to helmet

So the potential MIAs for Monday night are Pro Bowl players at QB, center, linebacker, and safety - good luck with that

Get ready for playoffs on the road

Default Re: #92 getting punished for an UNWARRANTED reputation

the problem is that the media is running with the story that James "is a dirty player". Thats the real problem. Why? Because the NFL instantly caves to whatever the media is printing. Hell, most of the fines and suspensions are being "guessed" by the panels and commentators days before they even happen now.
It's almost as if the decision makers in the office read the paper and watch the ESPN analysts....then "decide" how much the fine or suspension will be (without making the decisions on their own....as they SHOULD be doing) . And funny isn't it, that its almost ALWAYS what the analysts have said or printed?
Hmmm. Very suspicious.

The only thing that could possibly come of Tomlin "sticking up" for Harrison is drawing a fine himself. Please, just STFU.

Yep

Tomlin met with Goodell regarding the rules and presumably was told watch it on the helmet to helmet hits. Tomlin presumably carried that message back to the team. Then Harrison goes helmet to helmet - Tomlin's reaction to the suspension is how he had to play it

To be honest, there's not much Tomlin can say. He goes about as far as he can when he says that he disagrees with the hits being illegal (as he has done on numerous occasions).
If he want any further with comments, the league would in turn then dish out a fine to TOMLIN likely in the 6-figure range.

Thanks for going the nice route on your response. I personally prefer the response STFU!

Kindly take that bullshit elsewhere.
Didn't make any comparisons. Simply commenting on the issue at hand, which was Harrison's hit on McCoy. In a league that is trying to reduce the number of concussions due to hits to the head, all players need to be smarter and if they decide to still tackle people head to head, they need to be ready for the repercussions.

This is a BS excuse.

These guys are "professionals" getting paid more money in one year than almost all of us will ever see in a lifetime. You are telling me that because Harrison starting hitting guys in the face with the top of his helmet at age 10, he is incapable of figuring out how not to? I think that is absurd.

He doesn't want to change, which is fine. But it is now against league policy so he can either quit, change, or face the consequences. So far he's chosen #3.

Get that shit out of here.
He lined Colt up at least 5 yards out. He doesn't need to stop mid-air.... he needs to not aim for the head. Put your pads on his numbers and fold him in half with a legal hit and no one is talking about this today. Aim for the head, concuss McCoy and act like it ain't no thing, and he is sitting on the couch for SF.

I'll agree there are other Harrison hits that have been tougher because the reciever was crouching, or flinching, or moving. McCoy was by himself in the flat standing straight up. Harrison hit him exactly where he meant to. In the face with the top of his head.
