    Harrison fined 25K for hit on Fitzpatrick

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d...e=HP_headlines

    Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has been fined $25,000 by the NFL for a hit on Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
    Harrison was flagged for a roughing-the-passer penalty on the play because the officials ruled Harrison led with the crown of his helmet.
    The three-time Pro Bowler said Monday that he was not expecting a fine for the hit, since it was similar to a hit on Raiders QB Jason Campbell in Week 11 in which he drew a penalty but not a fine.
    "It's the exact thing as last week. It was the same exact hit. I hit him (Fitzpatrick) the same way I did the quarterback from Oakland and I got the same flag but I didn't get a fine. ... I'm expecting the same thing on this."
    Harrison has been fined a total of $125,000 for four illegal hits this season

    He should have given Fitz a Richard Seymour punch to the head because that's only $25,000 and would be money better spent.

    I would not be surprised if this is his last year and would not be able to blame him for walking away from this BS. The way hitler is going, hockey will be taking over as the most popular sport.........

    this is getting re-gosh-damn-diculous.
    "Today, I'm officially retiring a Pittsburgh Steeler. And as much as I will miss football, my teammates, coaches and everything about the game, I don't want to play it in any other uniform. The black and gold runs deep in me, and I will remain a Steeler for life."--Hines Ward

    I suppose we can be glad that it's only 25K, for James sake. Tomlin mentioned today that sometimes we don't take as serious as we should the fact that 100K is 100K no matter who you are. Harrison has 2 kids and even though he makes a lot of money it's still ridiculous to fine players for playing the game like it should be.

    It's getting to the point he is literally going to have to bear hug a QB, but nor drop him to the ground until the ref blows the play dead. If they're going to have a quick draw on throwing the flag, they'd better have a quick draw on "in the grasp" as well.

    Hey, a street brawl on a football field nets you a 25 large fine and apparently so does an "illegal hit." Makes sense to me.
