    Personally I like it....
    Slide over Lambert & Lloyd, and give Mr. Harrison some room on the Badass Bench.

    First of all arians is not his coach so he shouldn't be near him in the first place J.Harrison is looking for a way out without looking like a quitter the stuff about mendy and ben was way low i hope they trade him or he retires go be a raider then try to say that stuff about your Qb the Rooney's won't put up with this steeler nation if this is an accurate depiction of what he said say good buy to harrison in a steeler uniform Goodell has broad powers with the conduct policy remember you can be arrested for calling a black person the N-word Goodell can ban him from the league for this if he doesnt he'll be gone in wk 1 anyway for illeagal hit you would think that an undrafted player would be a bit more humble this is bad for the Steelers first ben and Santonio then Hines and Harrison all in the Tomlin era i wonder if this will effect his reputation

    Ok we see how good of it is to be badass this year when James Harrison is fined more then ever and will be suspended this year for his hits........These comments will do him no favors in the eyes of the Furher now........I'm all for a player being a badass but at the same time alittle common sense should be used before a player opening his mouth and sounding like an idiot......

    Is James wanting to position himself to leave the 'burgh? O is he just that stupid? It's not bad ***... it's ridiculous. Throwing your teammates under the bus, then slamming the commish. Now the commish can't wait now to slam James wallet again...

    like i said, he either wants out, or hes a dumbass...

    While I think he is a little out of line with the Goodell comments we have to remember that Goodell is systematically ruining football and #92 doesn't like it.

    As for the lockerroom stuff, Troy needs to tell him that he is NOT helping the team in anyway shape or form.

    Mendenhall tweeted "and lastly I don't mind what james harrison said because I know him"

    The rooneys have said they haven't seen his comments yet but will address the situation once a labor deal is reached.

    He'll get a warning and a fine. I highly doubt they release him nor should they

    Helpful summary from ESPN ..

    NEW YORK -- Heavily fined Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison calls NFL commissioner Roger Goodell a "crook" and a "devil," among other insults, in an interview with Men's Journal.

    If that man was on fire and I had to **** to put him out, I wouldn't do it. I hate him and will never respect him.

    -- James Harrison on Roger Goodell

    He even rips teammates Rashard Mendenhall ("fumble machine") and Ben Roethlisberger for their performances in this past season's Super Bowl loss to the Green Bay Packers.

    "Hey, at least throw a pick on their side of the field instead of asking the D to bail you out again. Or hand the ball off and stop trying to act like Peyton Manning. You ain't that and you know it, man; you just get paid like he does," he said, referring to Roethlisberger's two interceptions in the game. Harrison had one tackle, a sack, in the loss against the Packers.
    Mendenhall didn't take offense to Harrison's comments when he posted a response Wednesday on Twitter.

    "And lastly, I dont have a problem with what @jharrison9292 said because I know him. But I want you guys 2 check this out," he wrote, providing a link to's 2010 rushing statistics page which showed he fumbled just twice during the regular season in 324 rushing attempts.

    Harrison, the 2008 AP Defensive Player of the Year hasn't been shy about ripping the league after he was docked $100,000 for illegal hits last season. In the August issue of Men's Journal, which has Harrison on the cover holding two pistols, his rants against Goodell reach another level of wrath.

    Reaction to Harrison's Epic Rant
    James Harrison has ripped Roger Goodell before, but not to this level. Maybe even more eye-opening is his criticism of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.'s bloggers weigh in on the Steelers linebacker's epic rant. Blog

    "If that man was on fire and I had to **** to put him out, I wouldn't do it," Harrison told the magazine. "I hate him and will never respect him."

    His other descriptions of the commissioner include an anti-gay slur, "stupid," "puppet" and "dictator."

    Harrison told ESPN that the interview took place "in April or May sometime."

    If the Steelers had defeated the Packers in the Super Bowl, Harrison said, he would have whispered in Goodell's ear during the trophy ceremony: "Why don't you quit and do something else, like start your own league in flag football?"

    Harrison also questions whether a black player is punished more for a hard hit on a white player than the opposite.

    "I slammed Vince Young on his head and paid five grand, but just touched Drew Brees and that was 20," Harrison said. "You think black players don't see this s--- and lose all respect for Goodell?"

    Steelers in the news
    James Harrison isn't the first Steeler to make headlines since the team lost the Super Bowl to the Packers in February.

    Rashard Mendenhall
    • After the U.S. raid that killed Osama Bin Laden, he tweeted: "We'll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style" among other items viewed as sympathetic to Bin Laden. He took down the tweets and tried to clarify them, but eventually lost a sponsor.

    Hines Ward
    • Ward was arrested on July 9 in Georgia on a drunken driving charge. Ward said in a statement he was not impaired, but apologized for "this distraction." Later, police issued a report saying that Ward had glassy, bloodshot eyes and failed field sobriety tests during a traffic stop.

    Harrison also criticizes other NFL executives, Patriots-turned-commentators Rodney Harrison and Tedy Bruschi ("clowns"), and Houston's Brian Cushing ("juiced out of his mind").

    Bruschi is an analyst on ESPN's "NFL Live."

    While Harrison criticized some of his teammates, he had high praise for Steelers safety Troy Polamalu.

    "He's the one guy in football I respect absolutely, 'cause he's spiritual and lives it like he talks it. You know, he gets more flags than anyone on our team but never gets fined for nothin'. He's so polite and talks so softly that he could tell he could tell Goodell to kiss his a--, and Goodell would smile and say thank you," he told the magazine.

    Beyond the insults, Harrison makes some serious points about what he believes are the league's misguided attempts to increase safety. He explains how non-guaranteed contracts make players more likely to hit high, because in the short term, a torn knee ligament is more costly than a concussion.

    And Harrison suggests the real way to prevent head injuries is to shorten the season to 14 games, start offseason workouts later and trim the length of training camp so "we're not bangin' heads so much in August; that's where the brain trauma comes from."

    In a statement released Wednesday, Steelers president Art Rooney II said he hasn't read the article or spoken to Harrison. "We will discuss the situation at the appropriate time, when permitted once the labor situation is resolved," he said.

    Here come all the "goodbye James" and "cut him" comments lol. Dude has never been the sharpest tool in the shed. He's a badass dude who speaks his mind and doesn't give a f*ck. Certainly they were ill-advised comments but I don't see it as that big of a deal. Rashard said it himself that he doesn't care what he said because he knows James. I'm sure Ben will feel the same. Hell, those two have their own little pregame ritual together lol....

    This **** was also said 2 months ago. It will create a lot of stir, and rightfully so, but it's just a few comments. You don't cut arguably the best outside linebacker in the league over some ill-advised comments (during a lockout I might add).
