Is there anything we could do to support James Harrison and also show our outrage towards the NFL at the same time???

I know one of my local teams started up a one time charity donation once... I know I would donate something to a cause in response to this stupidity by the NFL and to support James. Maybe James has a charity of his choice?

Get 75,000 fans to each donate a dollar n pay his BS fine.....I'd be fine with the Steelers nit even showing up in Miami...they r taking tooooooooo much away from the game

This F U is for u commish:nono:

I dont think people need to support James Harrison financially... A donation to his favorite charity would be much more reasonable.

Also... Someone on fbook provided this:

If you are angry over this fine please send your opinions to:

well there goes our super bowl this year if he walks away. i know a little dramatic but i don't think without harrison and wood we are that effective.

--- Added 10/20/2010 at 01:41 PM ---

actually if i was the steelers in general i would boycott the miami game. i know the steelers would lose out on revenue but this is principle here now. there was nothing wrong with harrison's hit. hell boycott the rest of the season what is the nfl going to do take away our six lombardi's i think that should have some stroke in this. I know we got to protect form concussions and harrison said he was out to hurt not injure but injuries come with the game. and where was all this concern for concussion when ben was going through his concussions era.

Hey Rooney. Is there any doubt in your mind that Goodhell hates your fn guts? Huh! Huh! It's not necessarily all about money you fool. What if no one showed up for the next home game?

Stop messing with the game.

You guys are crazy...He's a multi millionare, this will leave his wallet empty for a few hours. I'd never give one penny to help even though he's our star LB.

I love the intensity though...

There's some tweets going around now that some people are sending in dollar to Goodell to help pay the fine for Harrison. I wouldn't be surprised if they actually get a pretty big response out of it.

The issue isn't that James will be broke or would be broke after this fine, the issue is that it shouldn't have happened in the first place.

Hm..I may actually send a dollar as well. It's not really paying off James Harrison's fine, but it's the principle of the matter. If they get 50000 people sending in letters and a dollar..it could really send a message.

I think Harrison would hear if all this money was being sent either way. /I don't think Harrison gives out his address..

hey i know let's fine all the refs for all the obvious holding calls against harrison, that might not tick him off enough to destroy other players.

Exactly! This has nothing to do with whether or not James can afford the fine because we all know it's basically pocket change for him.... this has EVERYTHING to do with making a statement to the NFL and letting the ******* commish know that Steeler Nation is unhappy with the ruling and saddened by the direction he is taking our beloved game.

Our statement is in the mailbox ready to be delivered as we speak.

More than likely it will be given to an NFL Charity of some sort... but again, it's the principle behind the whole gesture. If everyone in Steeler Nation makes some kind of noise about this, either by sending a dollar or by just sending a letter expressing their displeasure with the way the NFL is heading, the NFL offices will be SWAMPED with mail and you would think something will have to be addressed. :dunno:

Yeah, it's definately going to make a statement.... We really need everyone to do this. Don't just assume that enough other people will. Take a few minutes and get it done! :tt02:

We are sure that this is the correct address, right?
Roger Goodell, c/o National Football League, 280 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10017.

I am including this in my letter: "I have enclosed 1 dollar to contribute towards paying the fine given to James Harrison. If this is not possible, please donate the dollar to a charity of Mr. Harrisons choice."

The owner's are the big gun here. They or a committee formed from them elect this bum if I am not mistaken. They alone have the power to change things.

That's why we all need to write to the owners. Especially if you are a season ticket holder.

Boycott NFL advertisers. Shouldn't be too hard. Just means you need to stop drinking really bad beer, no more buying crappy vehicles, or watching really stupid reality tv shows.
