View Full Version : Goodell lawsuit a "win-win" - James Harrison

“If (Vilma) loses, it shows Goodell does have too much power,” Harrison said following an offseason practice, “and if he wins, it opens up the floodgates.”

“I don’t know what was said in (the Saints’) locker room,” said Steelers guard Willie Colon, who is close friends with New Orleans receiver Marques Colston. “To purposely go after a guy’s knee, head and leg, I think that’s uncalled for and totally disgusting. But to say guys are wrong after getting after another guy, that’s just the game of football. So I think there’s a fine line. If they crossed it in any way, then they should be handled accordingly.
“I know we don’t do football like that.”

Harrison, who was suspended for a game last season for a helmet-to-helmet hit, said the players should have done more to check Goodell’s power in the collective bargaining agreement they ratified last year.
The Steelers, Harrison was quick to point out, were the only team that didn’t vote in favor of the CBA. When asked if more players regret not doing the same, the five-time Pro Bowler said, “I would hope so.”

Oh I'm sure Goodell will file this one away for the first questionable hit that comes across the league..no doubt about it.

He is right, no doubt about it. He usually is correct on these things but man I just cringe for his checkbook everytime he tweets..lol

I guess James feels he's going to be a target no matter what so he's going out with guns a blazing!

I appreciate James still willing to tell the truth while most of the players in the league are terrified to say anything. Especially the supposed great Ray Lewis.
