PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — James Harrison made news yesterday for his comment on twitter, saying the people who make the rules in the NFL when it comes to illegal hits are “idiots.”

Today, he decided to expand upon those comments on his blog.

“I understand the intent behind making the rules, but in their attempt to make the game safer, they are actually clouding what is allowable,” Harrison said. “A close look will show you that the referees were calling things that were not even supposed to be called, and not calling things that were actually illegal.”

”These rules are targeting hard hitting players and defenses i.e. Steelers,” Harrison said. “I guess the NFL needed a poster child for their campaign.”
