James Harrison Is Still Bitter

New, comments

During Superbowl week, the amount of dumb questions asked of players increases tenfold. Sometimes it's reporters who know nothing about football, but get credentialed for the game... sometimes it's someone asking the same questions a guy has answered a thousand times... but this one was my favorite.

An NFL Network reporter, who let's be clear works for the NFL, was interviewing Steelers LB James Harrison. In case you forgot, Harrison has been fined $100,000 by the NFL this year for illegal hits, far more than any other player. So the NFL network reporter brings up the issue of illegal hits and you can tell that he's not really in the mood to talk about it once again. Probably even less so with an NFL employee. Then she asks him if he's "still bitter" about the fines.

He answers "Yeah they took a hundred thousand dollars out of my pocket this year, what you think I'm not bitter?" and gives her a priceless staredown. Check out the video after the jump.
