So, I can't even remember how long ago I sent that dollar to the NFL to help pay James Harrison's fine. I finally got that letter back from the NFL, and I said that I would type it up here after I got it, so here it is.


We received your letter containing money to be used to help pay for a fine incurred be Steelers linebacker James Harrison.

The player is solely responsible for paying his fine. Player fines collected by the National Football league are used to support retired players in need and other charitable initiatives supporting youth, education and sports-related medical research.

At the request of the organizer of this initiative, however, the money from fans like you is being donated to the Beaver County (Penn.) YMCA's Sacks for kids program.

One of our most important priorities is protecting our players from needless injury. In recent years, we have focused on minimizing contact to the head and neck, especially where a defenseless player is involved. This season we have further emphasized the importance of teaching safe and controlled techniques and of playing within the rules. It is incumbent on all us to support the rules that we have in place to protect players while serving as an example for all levels of football.

We appreciate your support of the NFL and hope you enjoy the remainder of the 2010 season.

Sincerely,
Rob McBurnett
NFL Public Relations

Read that second to last paragraph again. Go ahead, do it. I dare you not to bust out laughing. I know I did.

Yes, becuse Ben's nose broke all on it's own and Miller's career almost ended, but yet, no penalties.

Hypocrites!

Nice job Babe! Nice to see you and Rob are tight. :)


support retired players in need

This may be the biggest problem and main reason why we see all these different things happening. Many ex players are suing the NFL for not paying them workmen's comp for different injuries.

Oh yeah, you know. Not like that letter was sent to 10000 other people or anything :hehheh:

My favorite part is the, "we appreciate your support of the NFL." I thought by me sending that letter it got the point across that I didn't support the NFL. :thinking: Maybe I should send another letter..:lol:

Babe, you should send this letter to that spin doctor, Rob McBurnett, and ask him to respond to this one:

So basically next time we need to send the money directly to James and a letter with no money to the NFL offices. Idiots!

WHAT A JOKE.

Their only interested in safety if it involves James Harrison hitting someone. With the exception of Bardy and Manning its open season on heads in the NFL. Toyota we don't need your safety advice,we'll just fine Harrison and take your ad money.
