Pittsburgh Steelers James Harrison Calls NFL Owners ‘Idiots’
In their continual effort to turn the NFL to a flag football league, the NFL has new policy in the works that has been immediately dubbed, “The Steelers Rule”. This rule would not only fine a player for a hit that is deemed illegal by the league, the team itself would be fined for it as well. That set off Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison.
“I’m absolutely sure now after this latest rule change that the people making the rules at the NFL are idiots,’’ Harrison wrote on Twitter.
The NFL owners, though, sent a clear message with their 32-0 vote on Tuesday: This is not Roger Goodell’s mission alone, it is the entire league’s intent to make the game safer if not softer.
