No, this is not a copy of an earlier post, although it could be by this point in the season: James Harrison has been fined yet again by the NFL.
This time, the penalty is $25,000 for a very questionable roughing the passer call committed while hitting Buffalo's Ryan Fitzpatrick on Sunday. That brings Harrison's season total to a whopping $125,000 on the year, a simply laughable amount especially in light of other penalties doled out (or not doled out) by the league in recent weeks. Richard Seymour was fined the same $25K for dropping the Steelers' quarterback after the play, while Cortland Finnegan and Andre Johnson were fined $25K for a helmets-off fight on Sunday. And that's really the same as what Harrison did or didn't do on Sunday? Please. And spare me the "track record" argument. Finnegan is well known as one of the league's dirtiest players, and the Steeler incident wasn't Seymour's first rodeo, either.
Is the NFL, which I once considered a smart league, really as clueless as it appears in the matters of discipline consistency?
