Super Bowl XLV: Pittsburgh Steelers LB James Harrison Continues To Be A Quote Machine

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison hasn’t been shy during Super Bowl week when it comes to discussing the NFL’s fines leveled against him this season. On Media Day, he said the league doesn’t care about protecting the defense; it just cares about making money. And in a video on NFL Network he showed he’s still slightly bitter about Roger Goodell taking $100,000 out of his pocket.

In an interview with USA Today on Thursday, Harrison continued to talk about Goodell and the league:

On the commissioner: “Roger Goodell, I don’t know if he even played peewee football.”

On NFL decision-makers: “You’ve got a bunch of people in the front office of the league who are running things, making up these rules, and they haven’t played a down of NFL football. Our players are 10 times faster than they were years ago.”

We should all hope that having played football in the NFL never becomes a requirement for being named commissioner of the league.
