I have to say I think he is right to a point where Goodell is concerned. I don't advocate going about it the way he did, but in a lot of ways Goodell tends to act more like a middle school vice-principal than an NFL commissioner. He could stand to learn a thing or two about picking his battles and not nitpicking every little thing everyone does. I do see where he feels like he needs to keep guys in line for the good of the league, but if he keeps the leash too short he may just lose them all.

James Harrison ranting about something what else is new?

Damn, dude was flying off the handle, why take shots at Ben?


In a recent interview with Men's Journal magazine, Steelers OLB James Harrison harshly criticized Ben Roethlisberger's Super Bowl performance, suggesting the quarterback is riding the defense's coat tails.
"Hey, at least throw a pick on their side of the field instead of asking the D to bail you out again," said Harrison. "Or hand the ball off and stop trying to act like Peyton Manning. You ain't that and you know it, man; you just get paid like he does."


And he went pretty hard on Goodell too:


"If that man was on fire and I had to piss to put him out, I wouldn't do it," Harrison said of Goodell. "I hate him and will never respect him." Among the words also used by Harrison to describe Goodell: crook, devil, puppet, and dictator -- as well as a *** slur. Harrison also criticized teammates Ben Roethlisberger and Rashard Mendenhall for their Super Bowl performances while trashing former Patriots Rodney Harrison and Tedy Bruschi ("clowns") and Texans LB Brian Cushing ("juiced out of his mind").



I know he hates Goodell, but he kinda threw some shots at his teammates, and I wonder how the Steelers will react to this more then anyone else.

And, honestly, Goodell is a darn fool and a terrible commisioner for our league.

It was uncalled for. IIRC, James only had 1 tackle that game.

Loved this. The guy has 1 tackle in the Super Bowl and then tees off on his teammates for losing the SB. Pro-tip: Do your job better before you criticize others.

I also liked that the league is racist... despite his 75k fine for hitting a BLACK receiver wedged between his first fine 5k for VY and his 20k (3rd offense on Brees).

Modern day slavery I tell ya. NFL players have some severe entitlement issues.

Prior to the season starting, it sounded like the Pittsburgh lockerroom really didn't like Ben at all. It wouldn't surprise me if he's not the only one on that team who feels that way about Ben.

Doesn't like him, or doesn't like his play? He didn't really question him as a person. He was acting like he was their Kerry Collins to their defense. I would in fact be surprised if more people felt that way about his play. He's already won 2 SB's at his age and performed a bunch in the clutch, nobody is going to be perfect but I don't see how calling him out in the media helps anything.

As Skip Bayless (for once) accurately pointed out...

Harrison called Mendenhall a "fumbling machine" - He had 3 fumbles in 20 games in 2010-11.

And Harrison said "at least throw a pick on their side of the field instead of asking the D to bail you out again. Or hand the ball off..." about Roethlisberger. - One INT was returned for a TD (No D to "bail you out") and the other was thrown on the other side of the 50 (which is "their side of the field.") And why would he "hand the ball off" if Mendenhall is a "fumbling machine?"

As a Non-Steeler fan deep in the heart of "Stiller Country", this is classic entertainment.

Harrison is, perhaps, a ticking time-bomb. It is understandable to question what Harrison's lifestyle/behaviors will be if and when he doesn't have the outlet of football to release his perceived rage. Much like Dennis Rodman, he is an enigma, whom might have difficulty with life outside of their athletic profession. The difference between Harrison and Rodman, is that Rodman always had a flair for the dramatic or that he was "acting" enigmatic. Harrison, for better (on the field) and for worse (off the field) is dead serious.

Are the Steelers even in the playoffs without Ben? It's a quarterbacking league.

Yeah, we can officially confirm Harrison is an idiot. There's just no reason for any of this. The Goodell stuff I UNDERSTAND, but don't support. I wouldn't have anything kind to say about someone who took 100k out of my pocket either. It's still really stupid to say publicly and completely unconstructive to even approach the sentiment from that direction, but I can understand where he's coming from.

Ripping multiple members of his own team is just asking for trouble though. No reason whatsoever to do that.

But yeah, basically; we can confirm James Harrison as a great football player who shouldn't ever open his mouth.

I had a ton of respect for Harrison until I realized he is a douchebag idiot.

I wish there was a way to explain to him that there is a sizeable difference between who he is and what a good football player is. I'd agree with his assessment that it is tough to play in the NFL and whatnot, but other players at his position don't play this "kill the other player" kind of crap. They make good (mostly form) tackles and what not.

Yes, Goodell is probably wrong about a lot of what he does, but James Harrison is the last person who should be throwing stones.

Well that's your teammate. I mean Harrison is going out of his way to just bash someone. So what if he had been taking steroids. Doesn't give Harrison the right to hang Cushing out to dry. For all we know Harrison may have done some things we don't know about.

You don't see anyone other player coming out and saying in a magazine interview what Harrison did to what Cardinals player during the Super Bowl was dirty...or that owning a dog that ripped up his son was a stupid decision on Harrison.

Yeah, nice last 5 months or so for the Steelers since losing the Super Bowl.
Mendenhall a moron.
Hines Ward (gets caught, then denies) drinks & drives.
Now Harrison goes racial, and actually gets called out by many for the racial tone, from Stephen A Smith on ESPN, to Nate Newton locally here on ESPN Radio.
At least Ben didn't (get caught) raping someone yet this summer or smash his cycle into a car, without a helmet on.

This is why I have no respect for professional athletes as people, especially in the NFL and NBA. Egos are completely out of control. You wouldn't see this **** in the NHL.
Pretty much, I agree. There are a few whom I respect (Dirk, many Packers, Jennings, Driver, Rodgers, Collins, etc.), there are a lot of guys who would be homeless, jailed, or dead if not for the money they got paid to play a game.
That money, ultimately, comes mostly from we the fans pockets, one way or another.

The feds don't print the money for the owners to give them. We pay with licensing fees on hats, shirts, jerseys, tickets, parking sometimes, overpriced concessions, and the NFL Sunday Ticket ripoff.

And for those who think it's trendy to rip on Goodell. Tell me what you would do if you were commish to try and slow down the rising rates of concussions, and helmet to helmet hits?

Great work, good article.
It goes through 4 levels of people, all black, and then Goodell signs off yay or nay, and of course, he's racist.

I'm glad finally, someone is being called out for playing that old, tired race card.
Don Banks of CNNSI told me the same thing.... and the choice to have the ABM Harrison pose with guns. Wow, how original. Way to dispel that stereotype.

This guy is a clown, and I'd love to see the Rooney family suspends his racist ass for the season. Blackball his ass outta the league. He's already 32. He looked washed up against the Vanilla Gorilla Chad Clifton in the Super Bowl.

This is why I have no respect for professional athletes as people, especially in the NFL and NBA. Egos are completely out of control. You wouldn't see this **** in the NHL.

Well you can't judge every book by it's cover. There are still a lot of players out that who aren't young idiots and are playing the game and have a legitimate passion for it.

Harrison might be on his way out in the next couple of years unless he keeps having monster seasons. Already 33. There aren't too many OLB especially in a 3-4 that continue to dominate in their mid 30's. He'll be easily replaced like Gildon and Porter was.

But harrison doesnt have the wear and tear of a common 33 year old since he didnt start til 2007. But even though he isnt a common 33 year old I do agree he will be out soon especially with comments like these
