    Steelers Saint SB........oh the horror for emperor Goodell.

    Harrison torpedos Brees after the whistle......penalty or no?



    (by the way I really do not believe there is any anti Steeler bias, just having some fun. Goodell just wants a "kinder gentler" NFL. Not good for more physical teams like ours. JHs reputation for big hits is why he did get some questionable penalties.)

    And that Super Bowl would take place in N'awlins on top of that.

    Well, the last time Harrison and Brees met, Harrison was fined $20K for this hit. Maybe Brees wears a second helmet in the middle of his back that we are unaware of, making this a helmet to helmet hit.

    It doesn't need to be helmet-to-helmet, the hit only needs to be too hard and you get fined 20K. Helmet-to-helmet gets James 50K and a game. This little brush tackle only warranted 20K.

    JH's rep plus the loud reaction from all corners of the country on anything that Harrison does. Goodell reacts to publicity more than anything, since that is what could tarnish the shield.

    That is why simple accusations against Ben are a greater penalty than actual charges against Perrish Cox.
