Lockout or no lockout, James Harrison will not be silenced. In an interview with Men's Journal magazine, the Steelers' linebacker continues his nasty habit of ripping the NFL for its decisions to fine him for hits he thought were legal. He also takes shots at everyone from Roger Goodell, to teammate Ben Roethlisberger, to two former Patriots turned broadcasters.
From Pro Football Talk:
Harrison also called Goodell a crook and a devil and a puppet and a dictator. Harrison also described Goodell with the use of what the AP calls an anti-gay slur, a clumsy articulation of what most people describe simply as a gay slur. (Unless theres a new slur that is used to describe folks who dont like gay people. . . . Maybe Harrison called Goodell Michele Bachmann.)
Harrison likewise said that, if the Steelers had won Super Bowl XLV, he would have whispered this particular sweet nothing in Goodells ear: Why dont you quit and do something else, like start your own league in flag football?
But Goodell isnt alone in feeling Harrisons wrath. Harrison calls former Patriots standouts Tedy Bruschi and Rodney Harrison clowns. Harrison also claims that Texans linebacker Brian Cushing is juiced out of his mind.
