Harrison likely fined, not suspended

Multiple NFL sources say Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison will likely receive a hefty fine but not be suspended.

This could always change -- these things are never set in stone -- but there are strong indications from a variety of sources that Harrison is due for a fine that could be extremely significant, I'm told. Considering Harrison's history it would not be shocking if the fine approached six figures.

Harrison's hit on Cleveland quarterback Colt McCoy was crown to crown, but McCoy lowering his head beforehand helps Harrison's case, I'm told. But with Harrison's history, and the fact he struck McCoy with crown of his helmet, will lead to a significant fine.

I know it's been a wonderful Sunday watching the replays over and over and dude, you're right... It was a clean hit and a brutal hit. You can't convince them otherwise, so your beating a dead horse. But kuddos!!

Happy Sunday to all!! Was there any more hits these pansies will question after todays games? Plus, Red... Nice try dude. You're sadly mistaken to think I won't go to Phoenix and put my money where my outh is... you see, I, unlike you don't need to stand behind a computer and spread the filth that you do. Plus, learn the laws as just because someone is on your property, doesn't give you a right to shoot them. Wow, this isn't the old west, pilgrim. Your responses are commical and makes YOU look stupid. Last time I checked, this was between Coach, and I. It's ok that your life is so pathetic you need to jump in on the fray. I feel sorry for you and your family. Have a wonderful Sunday evening!!

You need to look at the replay again. Bad call. Great hit.

Actually you do. McCoy never lowered his head, and a-hole lead with his crown end of story.

Before it gets pointed out by the smart CBS bloggers...it should read "common since" and not "common sense."  So, the referees can put their whistles away.

Toughrough:  Some guys can look at that video and see it as a violent hit that has been common sense the beginning of the NFL.  That is how I see it.  Legal, yet powerful hit.  Others, the pansies who want the NFL to become pussified, would like a player to be suspended anytime someone rocks another player and it looks too violent.  Lets put red jersey on all of the quarterbacks and flags on the receivers and running backs.  Nobody will get hurt and the softies will be satisfied.
