It wasn't smart at all,but in no way should this effect his stay here in Pittsburgh. The Rooneys have every right to be pissed,and I'm sure he will get an earful from them.I really don't see them getting rid of him solely because of this,it may make him less desirable to be signed but I really don't see it as that important of an issue to get rid of him any earlier then already planned...
BITE ME ICS!...Woodsonsgirl
there was another fringe LB who got in trouble around that time as James' battery and his ass cut... #justsayin. The franchise has taken on a few for him already....
I couldn't agree more...Which is why I don't understand how everyone is so quickly accepting the "I was misquoted" excuse. Any celebrity that says something not too popular in an interview will come back a day later and say, "no, I didn't really say that, it was taken out of context." But does anyone honestly have such a hard time believing that James would say the majority of the things that he was quoted as saying in that article? I sure as hell don't.
Like I said, it doesnt matter if he was right or wrong (personally i agree w everything he said about Roger) but still you can't talk shit about your boss or your bosses boss in a publication not get in trouble.
James is a moron, thats obvious when he came to the 'burgh and he didnt know which other Kent LB that played for Pittsburgh too... i still believe this wont be forgotten and his days are numbered...

Take your millions of dollars, stop talking, and play the game. We wouldn't have to have these conversations if these players would keep their mouths shut for 5 seconds.
All I have to say about Harrison and his comments are...... He should've thought before he spoke but Harrison is a passionate man that doesn't care what people think of him before or after the fact. Considering the road he has traveled to get to the NFL as a starter, he has a attitude and a chip on his shoulder, he calls it like he sees it, everyone else be damned, he lives by his own code and his own rules. He plays a violent game, a game that he loves being changed and torn up right before his eyes, by a man who has never played the game. He doesn't go out and kill, rape, rob, drive while impaired or do drugs. People can call him a bum, an idiot, a moron or whatever else, its not going to change the fact that Harrison is as real as it gets. I bet a years paycheck that no one from SA would walk up to him and call him out. Thank God for forums, where everybody can hide behind their screen name and say whatever they want, everyone be damned. Whatever Goodell or the Rooneys have in mind for punishment won't do anything to change who Harrison is and how he lives his life.

"Give me a 6 pack, half hour of rest and lets go play them again....We can beat them."
"They say that when you're the champs, everybody will try to beat you. Well, I'm glad we're the champs, so bring 'em on, bring 'em all on. If we die, we ain't gonna die running. It's gonna be a fight."
Everyone is missing the point that I (and I think some others here) are trying to make. Nobody is denying that Harrison is right about Goodell. He is a crook, he is changing the game too much. Everyone agrees with that. What some of us disagree with is the way that he said that and even that he said anything at all. Goodell knows that the players and organizations aren't happy with him. He's not dumb. He doesn't need Harrison or anyone else for that matter to remind him of that. Calling Goodell out is not going to make things better, if anything it's going to make things worse, and not for all the players around the league that agree with what Harrison said. The only person that's going to feel the consequences of his actions is James himself, regardless of how many players he's speaking for.
Exactly I hate the Furher Goodell more then anybody and I think he is ruining the NFL....But James Harrison isn't doing himself any favors or the Steelers........I expect James to be fined even more this year which I bet leads to suspensions.......James Harrison getting flags and maybe being suspended during the season hurts the Steelers......
