James Harrison has been in the NFL for a long time, and he has been an amazing football player. The problem right now in the NFL though is many players feel Roger Goodell has too much power. When James Harrison was asked about submitting to an investigation, the Steelers pass rusher says he does not feel comfortable leaving his fate in the hands of Roger Goodell.
“If it goes to a conduct detrimental [situation] it goes to the hands of that crook, I mean Roger Goodell, [and] he can do whatever he wants,” Harrison said Thursday night. “That’s just the bargaining agreement that the players signed.”
As for the interview itself, Harrison wants it broadcasted live.
“Whatever evidence they think they have, or reason for questioning me, is out of my control,” Harrison said. “I really don’t know.
“I wouldn’t have a problem with it being filmed live. I’ve been prosecuted and persecuted, you know, publicly in the media by them for something I didn’t do. So I don’t see why we couldn’t have the media there and do a live interview. They can ask whatever questions they want and I can answer them.
“You all can see whatever evidence they say they got.”
