James Harrison Is Taking Advantage Of The Lockout

13 07 2011

He’s a human wrecking crew right now and he doesn’t give a shit who gets in the way.  In a recent Men’s Journal interview the Steelers linebacker takes on Roger Goodell, Ben Rothliesberger, other linebackers around the league and the Patriots. It’s as awesome as you think it is.

Fuck you.

Last season, commissioner Roger Goodell was under pressure to cut down on some of the “violence” issues (it’s a violent game) that were resulting in concussions around the league.  Goodell was throwing around $20,000 fines like they were PPA parking tickets.  It was insane, his season tally was something near the $250,000 range, or enough to educate one of his children for pretty much their entire life.  Before last season Harrison had been fined no where near that amount.  Goodell needed a scape goat and James Harrison was exactly that. That man destroys people on the football field, there’s no denying that, but most of the time the fines were from plays that weren’t even flagged penalities on the field….

“The amount of money is becoming an issue,” Harrison said Thursday. “The fines that they issued to me, two of them weren’t even called penalties. I don’t even know what to say anymore.”

James Harrison found himself an enemy, if Goodell was looking for it, he sure found it.  Now the lockout has caused even more animosity between the two and with Harrison finding himself in an un-fineable paradise these days, he’s speaking his mind.  He’s just out there verbally dick slapping anyone, even teammates, and well the cheating Patriots.

On NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell: “My rep is James Harrison, mean son of a bitch who loves hitting the hell out of people,” he says. “But up until last year, there was no word of me being dirty — till Roger Goodell, who’s a crook and a puppet, said I was the dirtiest player in the league.

On what Harrison would have told Goodell on the podium had the Steelers beaten the Packers in the Super Bowl back in February:

“I’d have whispered in his ear, ‘Why don’t you quit and do something else, like start your own league in flag football?’ “

“They take 10 plays out of 4,000 snaps and want to know my thought process on each. What I tried to explain to Goodell, but he was too stupid to understand, is that dudes crouch when you go to hit them. With Massaquoi, my target area was his waist and chest, but he lowered himself at the last possible second and I couldn’t adjust to his adjustment. But Goodell, who’s a devil, ain’t hearing that. Where’s the damn discretion, the common sense?”

Harrison goes on to describe Goodell as “Faggot Goodell,” a “punk,” a “dictator.”

On his own quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger: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.

On Packer LB Clay Matthews (2010 defensive player of the year): “Clay Matthews, who’s all hype — he had a couple of three-sack games in the first four weeks and was never heard from again — I’m quite sure I saw him put his helmet on Michael Vick and never paid a dime. But if I hit Peyton Manning or Tom Brady high, they’d have fucked around and kicked me out of the league.”

On Texans LB Brian Cushing (who happened to be Matthews teammate at USC): “That boy is juiced out of his mind.”

On the Patriots“I hate those motherfuckers, especially those two clowns [Rodney Harrison and Teddy Bruschi] who talked about me after the fines. … Sayin’ I’m dirty — shit, Harrison was the dirtiest player ever, a steroid cheater who was known by the whole world to be a headhunter and late hitter. And Bruschi’s an idiot, straight-up simple. I’d like to meet them both in a dark alley.”

I should have another ring. We were the best team in football in 2004, but the Patriots, who we beat during the regular season, stole our signals and picked up 90 percent of our blitzes [in the AFC title game]. They got busted for it later, but, hey, they’re Goodell’s boys, so he slapped ‘em $500,000 and burned the tapes. Was he going to rescind their Super Bowls? Man, hell no!

Damn. I think I just found my new favorite NFL player (non Eagle), it used to be Polamalu, but Harrison is just more interesting.  He doesn’t give a fuck.  He just pawned the commisioner like no active player has EVER done in the history of professional sports.  He crossed several lines there, and from my perspective, it was hilarious.

The ol’ Cheating Patriots. That was glorious to hear. I would pay 50 bucks on pay-per-view to see this animal Harrison take on Bruschi and Harrison in a cage match.  Let’s see how dirty Harrison is in there with no pads.  Loved everything he said, mostly because he’s right about the Super Bowl.  The Patriots cheated their asses off and got away with it…..because they’re Goodell’s baby.  The Golden Calf.  Bravo James, bravo.

“Clay Matthews and Brian Cushing, fuck you, you ain’t shit yet.” -Sir James Harrison

His own quarterback? Sure why not. Just tell him on national platform that he’s not as good as he’s paid.  Yeah that’s a cool move.  Harrison must have some issues with Ben, some deep rooted ones that accidental slipped out while he was on his hate tangent.  I don’t feel as though Harrison meant to insult his own QB when he started this interview, the hate was flowing from his mouth with the beauty of a Salinger short story.  You just can’t stop that sort of art.  Just let it happen at that point.

Overall just one of the most exciting interviews you’ll ever read.  Thanks James.
