James Harrison will not apologize to Cushing

You might recall that small, little-read magazine article this past offseason in which Steelers linebacker James Harrison made a few disparaging remarks about Roger Goodell (he called him a “crook “and a “devil” and said he “wouldn’t piss to put him out” if Goodell happened to find himself on fire) and ripped his teammates Ben Roethlisberger and Rashard Mendenhall for their Super Bowl performances.

I’m sure you remember that Men’s Journal story actually, but you might not recall that Harrison also ripped Texans linebacker Brian Cushing, saying he was “juiced out of his mind.” In response, Cushing said he would pray for Harrison.

Now that the Steelers are playing the Texans on Sunday, you probably expect Harrison to try to smooth things over with Cushing, the same way he did with his teammates and with Goodell. Obviously, you don’t know Harrison very well.

Harrison said he will not, in fact, apologize to Cushing for his comments in the magazine article.

“I don’t need to,” Harrison said, via the Pittsburgh Tribune Review. “It’s not on my mind.”

To be fair, Cushing was suspended four games in 2010 for a positive steroid test, so Harrison wasn’t necessarily incorrect with his assessment. But maybe he should acknowledge that he was a bit incendiary with his comments. Even if he doesn’t want to apologize for them.

James Harrison will not apologize to Cushing

Article: Harrison said he will not, in fact, apologize to Cushing for his comments in the magazine article.
“I don’t need to,” Harrison said, via the . “It’s not on my mind.”


For all you simpletons who are saying Harrison is looking for attention, read the quote above from the article.  Again.  Slowly.

He was asked if he was going to apologize.  Get it?  He was responding to questions as they do every week.  He wasn't seeking anything.
His response, "It's not on my mind." is a nice way to state, "Nice try.  Find some new material."  Brilliant, in fact.

The real story here is how these subjects are being reported out of context. The artical this is taken from was the first misquote. Then you have the media looking for any headline to milk. Add to that any responses misquouted of course! That's how you end up seeing this on the story lines after it has played out a LONG TIME AGO! I guess all is quite on the reporting horizon.
