“The Steelers rule” is a name we’ve heard a few people call the new NFL directive to fine teams for excessive helmet-to-helmet hits.
As you might expect, the Steeler most associated with such hits hasn’t taken the news well.
“I’m absolutely sure now after this last rule change that the people making the rules at the NFL are idiots,” James Harrison wrote on Twitter Tuesday night.
Harrison wasn’t the only one that was unapologetic about the team’s approach.
“Thoughts on “the steelers rule”???” linebacker Lamarr Woodley wrote. “lol im sorry that im not sorry we hit 2 hard.”
Harrison may think the NFL is run by idiots, but he should be happy he doesn’t play in the NBA. A comment like that would probably earn a sizable fine by NBA Commissioner David Stern.
