League is selling photo of James Harrison's illegal hit
Posted by Mike Florio on October 19, 2010 11:12 PM ET

The folks at KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh have uncovered an interesting angle regarding the hit that resulted in the imposition of a $75,000 fine against Steelers linebacker James Harrison.

The league currently is selling photos of the incident involving Harrison and Browns receiver Mohamed Massaquoi, at anywhere from $15.95 to $249.95.

Sorry, but the NFL can't have it both ways. If the league wants to legislate dirty hits out of the game, the NFL should do nothing to profit from those dirty hits.

For now, the NFL is.

Unbelievable. Florio says it best, they can't have it both ways... :evilshake:

The pic is garbage:
Seems Roger and his crew are the ultimate con men, they fine a guy on a whim then tell the public they have pics of the hit,then push this garbage at you.

How the hell can the NFL justify fining Harrison for a hit and then turn right around and sell pictures of it? Talk about hypocrisy! I am really starting to hate the NFL. :cursin:

The NFL is the ultimate back stabbing, lying, behind your back, organization around. They will do anything they can to appease the public when they get into an uproar. Talk about not standing on your own 2 feet and being wishy washy.

Personally I support James 100%, the Steeler way is tough football, not cry like a baby, run to your daddy Goodell every time something doesn't go your way.

:iagree: I support James 100% also....and I heard the Browns players on the news lastnight and they did NOT think he should of been fined.

Players in the league know the fine was BS because defensive players on any team know it could them on any given Sunday in the same boat. The NFL likes their squeaky clean, home town, oh let's let our children play this safe game, we can do no wrong, image. Guys like Harrison don't fit their mold because he is what the prototypical NFL defensive player should be.

You don't play this game because you're a nice guy, because you care about the opposition, or because you want to hang out with each other after the game. You play to win, and you play to win at all costs within the rules. Silverback does this and then gets fined and exploited to boot...yeah I'd say he has every right to be disgusted with the NFL.

FWIW, the NFL routinely sells photo's of players that their camera guys take during the games, but this one goes above and beyond and you know damn well they are doing to exploit him in every way possible.

Well he said it best himself...I love this guy:tt02:



"I never try to injure anyone, but I'm not opposed to hurting anyone," Harrison said in the Steelers' locker room. "There's a difference. When you're injured, you can't play. But when you're hurt, you can shake it off and come back. I try to hurt people."

This is exactly what I was talking about earlier. The NFL talks about 'player safety' and taking these types of violent hits out of the game but then they try to capitalize on the very thing they want gone. Goodell will single-handedly destroy this league my friends.

:plus1: Seams like the league wants to make rules to kill defensive football,remember the Mel Blount rule?and where does a defensive player now hit someone?...in the knees?, I can't understand it. Selling this picture is just plain wrong.:2cents:

Colleague of mine made this point today when I told him about the picture being sold so I can't take credit for it but it makes perfect sense regarding the hypocrisy of the league. "Funny how every week, highlight shows offer up the "biggest hits of the week" and then at the end of the season they show "biggest hits of the year."

Does ESPN still do that 'jacked-up' segment? I wouldn't know because I can't stand Berman, Stu Scott.... Well, pretty much all of them.

I haven't seen the "jacked up" segment this year. But I don't watch after the first hour because Ditka's a mumbler and I don't like Stu Scott either. Keyshawn blows but Tom Jackson is ok.

Seems the nfl is placing the blame for the photos on a "third party". They say now they will screen all photos.

I wonder if Dana White would want to be NFL commissioner??:lol:

Goodall will go down as the worst commissioner in NFL history.

He's losing fans and not because he's suspending players or issuing fines. It's not even because he's "changing" how the game is played. It's image. He's the greedy politician who is going to do what ever he wants. He's the boss or administrator that we all know that imposes rules and policies that make no sense because of ego. He's the hypocrite we all hate. He's spitting on the workers and the customers (us fans) . His ego is out of control. He thinks hes bigger then the game. The American worker is fed up with being treated poorly by policy makers. Goodall stands for that. He does not understand the customer or his product. He's taken us and the players all for granted.


Goodall image is down the toilet. He's lost fan support. The same fans he'll be begging next year when there is a work stoppage. I never thought I'd say this but I'm supporting the players next year 100%. And when there is no football it will be Goodall to blame. He's vilified him self by attacking good players who are good citizens. He's now attacking the fabric of the game we all grew up loving. He should have stuck to going after guys like Ben. Goodall must go. Hopefully the owners get the message before he does too much damage.
