View Full Version : Harrison could avoid NFL penalty for recent comments

According to Jeff Pash, lead negotiator for the league was asked this question during a press conference this evening as they discussed the recent ratification of a new deal tonight. He was asked if players who made comments in the off season would be dealt with by the NFL. He mentioned in a nutshell that as far as he knows comments made in the offseason are not against the rules. He did mention that things said during the season in reference to player violence and safety would be a different story.

So potential, as of now atleast, it looks like James Harrison could be in the clear from a league standpoint. We still don't know if the Steelers will take any action against him.

Part of me wants him to get punished. If he keeps getting away with it then he'll keep doing it. Result: we have to sit here and talk about it for hours on end everytime he says something stupid.

Just do NOT suspend him for the 1st game. We need all hands on deck for the battle vs. the Ravens. I think a good "talking to" will suffice.

During the lockout he wasn't an NFL or Steeler employee. A talking to will probably be all that happens.

If Harrison would just make his point without calling people names, he would probably be heard in a different light and have more support from players.

The guy was unemployed when the comments were made, actually the players union didn't officially exist either...right? OK, he's a bit of a moron, but he's OUR moron.:cope:

Agree. A "slap on the wrist."

We have people dying everyday so you have the right to free speech yet you want to take that same right from James Harrisons ? Very puzzling.

You may not agree or even like what he says but it is his right to speak his mind.

Do I really have to write another page long response to this?

I don't think Harrison should get punished at all for what he said. There was no collective bargaining agreement in place. Plus Goodall needs someone to say something because he's an out of control.
