Though James Harrison didn't have a stake in Saturday night's game between the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the recently suspended Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker found reason to protest one play.

With two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, Cowboys safety Abram Elam lowered his shoulder into the chest of Bucs wide receiver Micheal Spurlock as the ball sailed by him. No penalty was called on the play.

Harrison, whose one-game suspension for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy was upheld Friday, took to Twitter to voice his displeasure with the lack of a penalty on the play.

"Wow! I guess it is just us!" Harrison tweeted after the hit.

Fellow Steelers linebacker James Farrior chimed in to say the same.

Harrison used his Twitter account earlier in the week to voice his displeasure with the league's decision to deny his appeal. On Friday, he tweeted, "17 games,1000+ snaps, 100+ tackles, 12+sacks and 2 forces fumbles since my last incident and I get a suspension for a football play!"
