I met James Harrison a year ago, he was nice enough to take a pic with me and a friend. I didn't ask him any specific questions regarding the Steelers, heck I thought it was cool just to get a pic.
I had his 92 Super Bowl jersey on so that might have helped getting a shot with him.
Anyway, even if someone knew a player on a personal basis I doubt that player is going to divulge inside info, where it could get out to the public.
