James Harrison’s Comments
July 13, 2011 by staff
James Harrison’s Comments, He was in the log every day and talk about the respect I have for Steelers LB James Harrison as a player. Surely someone I would love to line up with the coach and uniforms. One of the best players in the position. But his recent comments in the Journal of the men for commissioner Roger Goodell and some of his teammates? That’s bad football.
“Professional” is the first word that comes to mind after reading their statements. Liters a Commissioner of the NFL with that kind of negativity (calling him “thief,” “devil”, etc) does not add up, nor make any sense.
I understand your position. This is a player who is undoubtedly the target of the league office for his style of play. But there is something to be said to act like a professional in such situations. And it is not.
The second part, addressed to his own teammates, including his quarterback? That is total garbage. No place in a public forum for the nation to check.
This is what Harrison said of Roethlisberger in his play in Super Bowl XLV “” Hey, at least a shot to pick up on your side of the field instead of asking for bail out D again. Or hand the ball and stop trying to act like Peyton Manning. Not that you know, man, you just get paid as you do. ”
All it does is create controversy in your own wardrobe the Steelers now have to navigate through once the blockade is lifted and we’re back to football. Necessary. Not at all.
I’ve now played for four teams during my career and such statements are derived from different parts of the costume occur daily. I could not say how many times an offensive player or defensive shot one another. That is (unfortunately) part of playing in the NFL.
Large amounts of money on the line (or a Super Bowl in this case), and emotion are high. I’ve even seen players go at each other apart and had to be stopped by his teammates before a fight broke out. You can get the intensity during a game in the NFL. Coaches get too involved.
The point here is simple. One thing is to give a blow to Goodell during the lockout (although I disagree with him); we have seen a lot of times in the last couple of months.
However, to launch their own teammates on the bus is misplaced and shows a lack of respect that a professional football player. And I have to ask Harrison if it was worth. Because I do not see it.
