2011 Super Bowl: Steelers' James Harrison Still Talking Illegal Hits

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers will meet in the 2011 Super Bowl which means it's another opportunity for LB James Harrison to express his displeasure with the way the league is handling big hits in the NFL. Harrison has been fined over $100,000 for illegal hits this year.

Harrison sat at a podium with a microphone and a Steelers hat on the table answering questions for an hour. If you've ever seen him speak in person, then you know how intimidating he can be. Sometimes he's short with his answers and his stare made me, frankly, a little scared.

Harrison touched on a number of subjects but the most entertaining of course was his take on those fineable hits he's seen this year. Here's a sampling of a few things he had to say:

See how popular the game is with a ton of flags.

The league is doing whatever they can to make the most money.

They don't really care about protecting the defense.

You can see how the interview went. At one point, he was even mocking NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell regarding illegal hits. Harrison isn't afraid to speak his mind about illegal (or in his mind, legal) hits in the NFL and there's no larger stage for that than Super Bowl Media Day.
