Harrison is a 6 ft, 242lbs man! How hard do you expect him to hit?! Yeah I can just picture him hitting like a 95lbs child. THAT IS WHAT YOU HATERS WANT! He has pulled back a lot! Those hit were no where close to as hard as he had been tackling! Yeah, he hit after Brees threwÖ..can you just stop dead after running that hard? I didnít think soÖ.Fine him some more and we are going to lose him! Come on now! This is just another way to fu*king attack the Steelers. For all of you ass-wipes you can go suck a big one!

One, on fox sports, they even mention Hines Ward as being part of the dirty players, when they were talking about Harrison.(Picture no 13) Did I miss something here? Tell me that isnít biased! Iíll call you a liar. Ward is one of the cleanest most respected players in the league. I even sent an email to the whiney prick telling him what I thought about him. Hope he enjoyed that!

Two, now they are all over Polamalu! Flagging him? Really??!! Where was that fine when douche bag grapped him by the back of his jersey after play ended???? NOWHERE!

Three, how many holding penalties was not called on the Saints? I counted 5 in one game. They were called once! So all you pus*y-ass mothas that want to complain about how they are handed the all the games??? Really?! Only difference is the Steelers Nation donít whine and cry about what couldíve, shouldíve, wouldíve been when it comes to bad calls! We come back and stomp asses next go round!

National Football League is trying to turn into National Pus*y League! Iíll tell you one thing they keep it up and Iíll stop supporting the NFL at all.

Now, thatís what I think and all you haters can shove that up your asses!

Get your eyes checked. Nothing butch here! Funny though...been called alot of things butch is not one of them. Try again.

NFL changing the rules and fining players is like NASCAR fining the drivers if they get a scratch on the cars. Itís retarded! You go to the race to see the crashes; you go to a football game to see the hits! Duh! Yeah, they get hurt sometimesÖ..thatís why they make the big bucks. Here is what the players thinkÖ..

This is why I have nothing but the utmost respect for Troy! Damn nobody says it better!!!!

James Harrison was not immediately available today to speak about his trip to New York to meet with the NFL commissioner, but Troy Polamalu had a few things to say.
Polamalu, the Steelers' five-time safety, charged that commissioner Roger Goodell has too much power and said paranoia is rampant around the league since the NFL crackdown on certain hits by defenders.
"It's football, you know. If people want to watch soccer then they can watch soccer," Polamalu said during a lunchtime interview. "But, honestly, overseas when people are attracted to this game, they're going to see the big hits, they're not going to care about touchdowns and different things. So you're also taking apart what attracts people to this game."
Polamalu said he would not have wanted to have a meeting with Goodell to air his opinions, the way the commissioner gave Harrison a chance to do on Tuesday.
"Sometimes I think it just falls on deaf ears," Polamalu said. "I think a lot of players have said a lot of things and I guarantee you he heard everything everybody said.
"But, you know, he's got all the power; that may be part of the problem, that there needs to be some type of separation of power like our government. There should be some type of players involved in decisions over how much people should be fined or what they should be fined for, as well as coaches, as well as front office people.
"I don't think it should be just totally based on what two or three people may say who are totally away from the game. I think it should be some of the players who are currently playing."
Asked if he thought officials were "paranoid" about calling penalties since the crackdown began two weeks ago, Polamalu said he was not sure.
"I don't know about the referees' decisions to maybe need to throw a flag but there is definitely a paranoia that is unneeded. Just because we had that weekend a few weekends ago which there were, I think somebody said, five hits out of 1,000. Yeah, I think there is too much paranoia."
Polamalu obviously does not agree with the NFL's crackdown.
"Do players need more protection? I don't know. I think in certain instances, yeah, but I don't think you can just completely make every type of hit obsolete, from horse collar tackling to whatever kind of tackling it is. You just can't control some of these factors.
"Like James' big problem was, If I'm aiming for his chest and he lowers his head, that shouldn't be a fineable hit."
Polamalu, echoing Steelers coach Mike Tomlin's sentiments a few weeks ago, said there is no confusion among the players as to what the NFL wants.
"No, I don't think there's any confusion. I just think the problem is that they're wrong."

I just hope they can save the game, and don't change the structure too much. I remember going to Bears games, as a kid, and watching Dick Butkus just annihilate players. Later on it was Jack Lambert and Lawrence Taylor. Then the 85 Bears defense, best i ever saw. You could even see the fear in the eyes of the opposition quarterbacks as they came up to take the snap, I remember Tony Eason's hands shaking, as he approached the center....lol.....we may never see anything quite like that again......

Normal speed it appears as only a late hit. But pausing it at initial contact, you'll notice he "lowers his head" just before impact and his "helmet" delivers the blow to the middle of Drew's back to knock him down. THAT is what he was fined for. He may have gotten away with it in the past because it happens so fast, but the NFL is not going to allow the helmet to be used as a weapon to knock people down as a way of tackling.

Look again. When he breaks free of 74, he lowered his head to run; the second before the hit he raises his head. His arm went down on the shoulder of Brees. That is why they are calling it facemask to helmet hit. Nice try though!

Jopa-n, thanks
