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.

Hey Bag of shit........I haven't gone anywhere, just have more important things to do than to listen to your idiotic comments.  Like a said, paralyzing someone with a CHEAP SHOT isn't football.  Obviously it would be the only way you would know how to play the game, (which I doubt you ever did).  Great players are great tacklers not pussy assassins.  Go visit one of the x-football players who have had career ending CHEAP SHOTS taken on them and talk to their families...at any level any then talk to real sports fans.  YOU WANT TO MEET ME........WHOOOOOOOO......TOUGH GUY......You are only embarrassing yourself.  Stick your cute little towel in your big mouth... and one up your ass while you are at it.

Six plays that clearly stick out in my mind. -
1. Tatum- Stingley.... 
2. Mike Utley - 
3. Dennis Byrd
4. Anquan Boldin geting absolutely rocked where I swore his got his neck broken.
5. Wendell davis blowing out both knees at the Vet
6. Napoleon McCcallum...
Anything short of that...annd complaints should be few and far between... Conconssions?   .... 
Yeah, about that Harrison fine... he gave him a concussion, he didn't turn the kid into a vegetable like in Rollerball!
The more the player gets jacked up (not like Stingley or Utley or Byrd.)... the happier I am during the game.. It's been that way.
The Curtain, Doomsday, Orange Crush, The Purple People Eaters, ... ah... the hits they used to inflict......   &nbs

You macho men are quite entertaining. Seriously, thx for the laugh. What's funny is most of you never played past pop warner or high school, if ever, yet you're experts. Yep, the long list of accomplishments by these bad ass posters will be rolling in now. Ya gotta love sports blogs where you can be whom ever you want to be and as tough as you want to be...to funny. Btw, if anyone is curious, I'm Elmer J. Fudd and I own a mansion and a yacht, and I played 20 years with the Rams....I'm super big and strong, oh, and I'm a vergo.

Not even close to being a form tackle, and you never lead with your head...sorry, you're 100% wrong. And drop the John Rambo/Macho Man Randy Savage bluster, it's really discrediting anything you're trying to argue.

Really? So putting his head down and hitting with the crown of the helmet is no longer a penalty?
Go watch soccer... NO IT's not a penalty. It's National League Football. Where you take the top.5% of the biggest baddest human college football missles attempt to tackle inflict punishment on each other for one pupose: winning the Super Bowl!
As for this concussion thing? Aikman and Hoge had multiple concussions. They speak fine! McCoy had his bell rung once... what a bunch of sissy's you are.
Go out and play tackle football in a city school yard, hit yer head on the pavement a couple of times, and then give me ring..
I can't wait til Harrison plays that sissy in in the last game of the season.
Fine? For what? playing football? well it's more like soccer now, but what can I do?

Hey, you know what would toughen the game up for real? Guns. That's right; the bar has been raised. if you're not willing to get shot in the face to save 3 yards on a screen pass, then hang up your slippers, prima donna ballerina. James Harrison is a wuss until he takes a bullet. There. It's no less unnecessary, and it surpasses your insecure, arbitrary purity test for manliness.

Priceless lotus...

For the manly football genii who think they know the correct way to tackle, the proper way is using a form tackle...period. The facemask is planted in the offensive players chest, no helmet-to-helmet (spearing), no using the crown of the helmet like a projectile. This is taught in Pop Warner and has been for decades. Harrison by all accounts cannot tackle correctly; at least he has yet to demonstrate he can.
Thank God I won't be is Wisconsin anytime soon or that internet tough guy might sniff me out and beat me up...lol What an absolute fricking joke. I thought meeting behind the bleachers after school ended sometime around junior high...sad to be that insecure.

Wow, more lack of intelligent posting going on in here. The tackle that James put on him was a football tackle. You DO lower your head when you go to tackle, otherwise you go in straight up and break your neck. My GOD you anti-hitting people make me sick. I agree that they need to get rid of the blatant cheap shots, but that tackle was a form tackle and ALL the players know it, so why can't you so called fans? I love how this dude is insulting me all along the way as he can't hang with me, so insult me instead. As soon as you opened your mouth with your insults towards me, you became irrelevant. Like I said before, if you want to meet me, private message me and we will meet. I will prove to you once and for all that I am a MAN of action. These posts are insane saying he should be banned from football, and fined. Find one football player that is against James, and his hit, and then maybe you have a point. Maybe!! This is the NFL, not the pu$$y league like you want it to be. Wake up, and get your heads out of czar Goofdells azz!! Watch real football like we here in Steelers nation do each and every week!

Obviously action to protect players from unnecessary concussions and injury is a good thing. But the plays that they are considering "illegal" is officially out of hand. There was nothing dirty about the Harrisson hit. It surely was not intentional. The NFL needs to simplify this dirty hit business by getting back to basics. If its an obvious intentional dirty hit, flag em. If helmets collide as a result of a high speed play by accident, noone needs to get fined. Its a joke. Maybe a 10 yard penalty?? Surely not the 15 that is given now. The league embarrassess its brand with every play like this that takes place. Im not defending Harrisson or any other individual, let me make that clear. I could care less about these millionaires bank accounts. But the reality is this drama and unccertainity that now exists with the NFLs new defintion " illegal hits" is very poor and in very bad taste. You cant police every little play. Get back to basics NFL.
