So how hard does Roger Goodell hit James Harrison?
It has to be hard, right? In other leagues, players -- star players -- utter gay-bashing slurs and are fined large sums of money. Harrison just uttered one ... and according to this account of a story in Men's Journal, he uttered it about Roger Goodell.
So I'm thinking $250,000 and a game suspension. Maybe more, given that Harrison has been a thorn in the league's side for years -- handing out concussions as if they were lollipops, attacking players in the head in an era when that is strictly forbidden. This is an accumulation of offenses, of various varieties, and Harrison isn't getting the message.
Whatever Goodell does to Harrison, I'll support it.
And I'm thinking Ben Roethlisberger might enjoy it, too. Don't tell me you missed what Harrison told Men's Journal about his quarterback's play in the Super Bowl loss to Green Bay:
"Hey, at least throw a pick on their side of the field instead of asking the D to bail you out again. Or hand the ball off and stop trying to act like Peyton Manning. You ain't that and you know it, man; you just get paid like he does."

Was the second shooter in the grassy knoll.
Landed on Sam Bradford's shoulder.
Gave Stephon Marbury a webcam.
Stole that video of LeBron getting dunked on.
Spiked the steroid test of David Ortiz.
Took the SAT for Derrick Rose.
Meanwhile, back on planet Earth ...
How about that woman? She accuses Roethlisberger of rape, despite a veritable mountain of evidence -- including her own gloating words about having sex with the Steelers QB -- that no rape occurred. But now she says that if he admits to raping her, she won't sue him?
Don't hold your breath waiting for that admission, dear.
On second thought ... do.

Well who's laughing now? Huh? I am. Loudly.
Ben Roethlisberger is doing it again. He's inventing injuries even his own team doesn't know about. Maybe he has broken ribs. Maybe he ate ribs last night, and got confused. Whatever the case, Big Ben is the biggest drama king I've ever seen.
And Steelers fans, you know it.
The guy's a great quarterback. Clear leader. Brave player. All of that.
And a first-class drama king, as I said in this article that made so many of you so mad. Granted, the prediction was off. But Drama King? Dead-solid perfect.

Which is good. This is how that idiot spends his free time.
This is why NFL teams need to avoid character risks on draft day. This guy was a bad dude in college, and now he is being (allegedly) a bad dude in Denver.
The economics of baseball have been in place for decades, but Prince Fielder believes those economics shouldn't apply to him. Shut up and take the money, junior.
The same goes for you, Cole Hamels, especially since you had the nerve to say that you "just want to see some generosity." Other than the 500 G's, you mean?
It's a valid point: Why do MLB teams have to beat up on college kids every spring?
Flip Murray for MVP of the NBA. OK, not really. But at least he's not haboring alleged murderers in his house.
