James Harrison: Goodell Is a “Crook” And A “Devil”

Steelers LB James Harrison will be in the August edition of Mens Journal magazine, and he goes no holds barred on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

In the article, Harrison holds nothing back when discussing the commish, calling him a, “crook” and “devil”. But Harrison didn’t stop at the name calling. Harrison also said,

“If that man was on fire and I had to piss to put him out, I wouldn’t do it. I hate him and will never respect him.”

Well alright!!!

In addition to “crook” and “devil”, Harrison called him, “stupid,” ‘’puppet” , “dictator” and a anti-gay slur.

Harrison is still reeling over his $100,000 fine he received after the league enforced new safety rules last season. Also on the receiving end of Harrison’s ether were  other NFL execs, Patriots-turned-commentators Rodney Harrison and Tedy Bruschi (he referred to them as ”clowns”), Houston’s Brian Cushing (”juiced out of his mind”),  and teammates Rashard Mendenhall and Ben Roethlisberger for their performances in the Super Bowl loss (about Ben, he says, “Hey, at least throw a pick on their side of the field instead of asking the D to bail you out again. Or hand the ball off and stop trying to act like Peyton Manning. You ain’t that and you know it, man; you just get paid like he does”).

Harrison does simma down a bit to start discussing his theory and solution to illegal hitting situation. Harrison believes that non-guaranteed contracts make players more likely to hit high, because in the short term, a player would take a concussion over a torn knee ligament. Harrison believes the solution to prevent a head injury is to shorten the season to 14 games, delay the start time for offseason workouts and trim the length of training camp so “we’re not bangin’ heads so much in August; that’s where the brain trauma comes from.”

Harrison’s points are valid, but we know the NFL is all about money. His suggestions won’t happen, probably in our lifetime, if ever.

I always thought Harrison was a bit angry, but this article confirms it for me. I wonder if Nicki Minaj is song #1 in his football playlist, cause he sure sh*tted on a few people in this article, and these are just the tidbits. I wouldn’t want to be on his bad side….
