SURPRISE! Once again Satan's little helper is at it again!

In the days leading up to "the decision", NO NOT THAT DECISION LAST YEAR, I'M TALKING ABOUT COMMISSIONER GODDELL'S DECISION ON HOW TO PUNISH JAMES HARRISON, talking heads on sports shows, radio, newspaper articles, websites, and blogs have given their take on what they think is fair, not only what they think should happen but what they think will happen. Well, the time came and now we have the verdict from the only opinion that really matters, Roger Goddell. The commissioner decided to levy a 1 game suspension without pay for Harrison's most recent helmet to helmet hit on Colt McCoy. 

Colt suffered his first concussion on the play to our knowledge and is still experiencing symptoms such as dizzyness, headaches and sensitivity to bright light. He's not practising with the Browns yet and is currently under the supervision of the teams medical staff working to get back on the field as soon as possible. This just shows how tough this Texas Boy really is. Just think, he didn't even remember the game when asked about it during post-game interviews yet he sat out only 2 snaps before jumping up and getting back out there to help his team. Watch the impact of that hit one more time and then if there was any doubt in your mind about what a great teammate McCoy is, there won't be anymore. 

Harrison has racked up hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines over the past few years and has constantly butted heads with commissioner Goddell over nearly ever topic possible. Harrison even went as far as to say he wouldn't piss on Goddell if he was on fire. Now, tell me how smart you think it is to say that to the guy that will be deciding a variety of important decisions for not only you, but your teammates, coach, and team throughout the year.

It just shows Harrisons lack of committment to his teammates when he continue's to say over and over that he's not going to change, and he's always tackled this way, he was tought to tackle like that and no one is going to change him now. Well, now he's out for the next game. The Steelers already may be without injured Ben Roethlisberger and now are going to be missing one of the best defensive players in the game just out of defiance it seems.

Smartin up James, this is a team sport its not just about you anymore, pay your fine and get back on the field after an apology and a little speech where you let everyone know you won't let them down again!
