James Harrison needs to be tossed out of the league, plan and simple. ANYONE who goes onto the field looking to hurt people, has NO business being in football.

On a side note, what a great selection of games on TV this week....mainly because not one of them had the Steelers.

I think you need to get a clue!! What a REALLY pathetic comment! I just happened to watch some of every game on TV today and I saw alot of things that should have been penalties BUT were not called!! This is football-not golf or tennis-which is maybe what you should become a fan of and watch on your TV!! No "common sense" for you!

Doing WHAT a lot? What, exactly, are you darling little ballerinas referring to? The play where he was called for "putting his full weight on the QB?" That was called a TACKLE, my little sugar-plum fairy, and even the commentators went on and on about what a stupid call it was.

Sorry-but I see no fairness in the league and the media making an "example" out of one player and this is exactly what they are doing!! How is it fair for the league and the refs to be calling penalties and fining a "very chosen" few! It's getting to the point where football is becoming less about the game and more about who's gonna get called for penalties and how much they are fined!

I've been a huge fan of football since I was 10. I even managed my high school football team because I love the sport, and being a girl and all I couldnt play. Its the only sport where I can yell at my tv and tell my favorite players to "smash him! kill him! Will some one PLEASE take that guy out!".:-D Im not normally aggressive or even the type of person who raises my voice a lot...but this is FOOTBALL. It is NOT a pansy sport, for that watch golf or cheerleading. When you sign up to play football, u sign up for the hits and the glory. And even knowing the risks, Id let my son play. I watched the Steelers game and Harrison's hit was a clean hit on the quarterback. He hit below the shoulders as he was releasing the ball. Those refs were making bad calls the whole game, even the announcers were getting mad. The reason the Steelers are being made an example of is because they are a hard hitting team, but they arent helmet to helmet hits. If you watched the Patriots or even the Eagles play last week there were a lot of illegal hits and even a couple helmet to helmet hits that didnt get called...why? Because they arent the Steelers and the league has double standards. Even the NFL network pointed it out last week when they were showing QB sacks. When the "star" QBs got hit too hard there were tonz of flags but when its someone not so "celebrated" they let it slide. Favoritism cant even be escaped in the NFL. I dont know, maybe I'll start watching hockey.

Aww, you mad, bro! Sorry if calling into question previous hits that Harrison had this year (and just the ones he was fined for!)made you all red in the face, screaming at the monitor. I'll watch my words, next time.

the nfl doesn't like the fact that harrison is stronger than the players he is tackling and that he hurts them. fines or no fines harrison brings it on every play. the league makes him defensive player of the year and then two years later fines him for the hits that made gave him the award. just a bunch of BS imo.

Totally agree. Its like telling boxers "no hitting"...it just doesnt make any sense. There's a reason the Steelers have such a strong defense and I'll attribute all future losses to the fact that they are no longer ALOUD to play real football.

Tell me why the announcer on ESPN was just doing highlights and called the "roughing the passer" call on Harrison this week a "bogus call". He actually said "Im tired of all these bogus calls", as in more than one. Its not our imagination, its a fact, people who know football know that Harrison is getting screwed.(for lack of a better word)

I agree that Harrison gets singled out with penalties. I watched both the Steelers and the Eagles game yesterday. The Harrison hit looked clean to me and there were a couple questionable hits in the Eagles game that weren't called. At one point the announcers said after a hit that wasn't called "well this is the NFC East I guess they are letting them play tonight."
Which is complete bs. They are basically saying it depends who's playing on weather or not it's a penalty. On a side note I thought the Asante Samuel hit was legal too.

Actually, I was laughing at the monitor while lightly sipping 45 year-old unblended Irish whiskey. You were close, though. And I wasn't calling into question the earlier hits and fines (though they certainly deserve to be called into question as well)--I was calling into the question the moronic response to the "Putting His Full Weight on the QB" call that started this thread. If you think that was an illegal hit, or a dangerous one in any way, then you hate football. Simple as that.

They might as well play flag football. The Raiders are notorious for playing dirty defense over the years too.

what is the league doing about offensive players that do the same thing? NOTHING!

Blockers making hard, blind hits are just as dangerous as the defensive "villians". A defensive player can be just as defensless(no pun intended) and take a viceous hit from a downfield offensive player!

they put the hines wars rule into effect just this year. it tries to eliminate crack back blocks. it seems like the nfl doesn't like the way the steelers play football. too rough for them i guess.
