Harrison Fined $25K For Hit On Buffalo Bills QB

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Steelers LB James Harrison is taking another hit to his wallet.

He has been fined once again for what the NFL is calling an illegal hit.

This time Harrison has to pay $25,000 for his roughing the passer penalty on Buffalo Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick on Sunday, according to our news partners at the Post-Gazette.

That brings Harrison’s total fines for the season to four for $125,000.

    Come on, they are not playing Flag Football !!!!!!, the NFL is starting to look like the NBA. They should be focusing on more important topics, James is playing the way all the players should, WITH A LOT OF HEART!!!

  5. Lee says:

    How come harrison, of all the nfl players, is being targeted? Plenty of other player do the same thing week after week!

    Antone else notice they only show one angle for the replay and they are pulling it off you tube.
    You can see the ref start to throw the flag before the QB was ever hit.

  7. Amee says:

    So next time Harrison instead of playing football like a great football player should do like yourself you should just go ahead and sucker punch the quarterback becasue obviously Goodell doesn’t know the difference!!

    why dont you just quit it you just dont get it

    I think the refs should be fined for blown calls. How many times have you seen blatant calls and all the teams get is a “sorry” on Monday. I think James Harrison’s plays football with intensity and does it very well. The NFL keeps changing the rules along the way. You may as well stop calling it football. And I agree James should have punched him in the head , the fine would have been cheaper.

    James Harrison is a damn good player. I think its total bs that he’s gets fined for playing the damn game and the two straight FIGHTING on NATIONAL TELEVISION GET NOTHING!! SERIOUSLY??? Regardless of what they say… I’ll still wear my number 92 jersey every single time they play!!!!

    Hey Harrison, personally I think, if they wanna give you fines, give them something to fine you for =) Keep up the good work!

    How can we get Rodger Goodell removed as commissioner? This guy is ruining the NFL!


  12. Valloyd says:

    Harrison, If you are going to get fines $25,000. Just punch them out like the others. Shoot get in a real good reason to get fined. Total BS on you!! You play the game and play it well. You earned your money not by playing Powder Puff Football…

  13. BB says:

    Well Harrison, want to keep mouthing off about doing what you want & acting like the NFL is beneath you? How much will it take for you to realize you work for them?

  14. Mary says:

    We all know

  15. Mary says:

    We all know Goodell hates the Steelers for some reason, I say boycott all of the NFL stores and tickets
