Steelers linebacker Harrison sounds off

Heavily fined Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison calls NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell a “crook” and a “devil,” among other insults, in a magazine article. Harrison hasn’t been shy about ripping the league after he was docked $100,000 for illegal hits last season. In the August issue of Men’s Journal, his rants against Goodell reach another level. “If that man was on fire and I had to piss to put him out, I wouldn’t do it,” Harrison said. “I hate him and will never respect him.” Harrison also criticizes other NFL execs, Patriots-turned- commentators Rodney Harrison and Tedy Bruschi and even teammates Rashard Mendenhall and Ben Roethlisberger for their performances in the Super Bowl loss. – Associated Press
