James Harrison was made the face of evil by Roger Goodell, at the same time the League elevated the brand of Tom Brady. It was ironic that James Harrison went to a team that he accused of cheating his team out of an AFC Champion game and even celebrated the cultured of the New England Patriots as being better than the Pittsburgh Steelers.
All of this discussed in depth in the new book ‘The Asterisk.”
“Harrison used the Men’s Journal to launch a personal attack against 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. 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.”” – James Harrison
In my view [Author]: it is not by accident that the major fines levied against Steelers and other physical defensive players coincided with the enactment of the so-called “Brady Rules” that have revamped professional football.
