His unrivaled persecution complex on shimmering display, Steelers linebacker James Harrison wants you to know he's anxious to find out how the NFL will discipline the Saints and former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.
The NFL exposed Williams' "bounty" program Friday following a two-year investigation. Harrison -- often the target for league discipline involving late hits -- believes his career would be irreparably damaged were he caught up in such a scandal.
I'll just say this, if that was me I would have been kicked out of the NFL!!!â James Harrison (@jharrison9292) March 4, 2012
"I'll just say this" isn't what it used to be. Harrison continued:
We'll see how concerned the NFL is about player safety when they decide what the punishment for the saints is.â James Harrison (@jharrison9292) March 4, 2012
Harrison isn't the only infamous defender sharing his opinion on the issue.
Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh -- who has accumulated nine personal-foul penalties and one very high-profile suspension during his first two NFL seasons -- told the Charlotte Observer on Sunday that his teammates never have intentionally tried to hurt players.
"It's unfortunate to hear these things come out," said Suh, who served as the grand marshal at Sunday's NASCAR Subway Fresh Fit 500 Sprint Cup race. "Me personally, I don't take part in those things, and knowing my teammates and knowing my coaches, we wouldn't allow that.
"I understand it's a tough situation the commissioner has to deal with," Suh added. "As he has in the past, he's going to deal with it with a stiff hand. Hopefully, people can learn from the mistakes and make an example out of it."
