James Harrison Suspended, Responds On Twitter With 'LOL'

James Harrison had been fined many times for dangerous play by the NFL before being suspended for one game for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Colt McCoy last Thursday. His pithy response to that suspension on Twitter will not earn him much sympathy:

Lol!!!

Moreover, though, it seems that Harrison's antics are not particularly troubling to Steelers coach Mike Tomlin. He's disappointed about the suspension, but not because of Harrison's actions:

"We're disappointed. We're disappointed for James because we know how hard he's worked to play within the rules," coach Mike Tomlin said. "We accept the judgment rendered by the league office and we'll move forward."

Harrison's earned his reputation as one of the NFL's dirtiest players with a number of late and brutal hits, but he's also playing for a Pittsburgh team that is no stranger to personal fouls for aggression. The Steelers have been flagged for 13 illegal hits this season, most in the NFL.
