James Harrison says Roger Goodell is a ‘crook,’ wants meeting televised
James Harrison is not letting up on his attacks against the NFL, and more specifically Roger Goodell.
On Thursday, Harrison called Goodell a “crook” and challenged the NFL to broadcast his meeting with investigators in order to show off whatever evidence they have against him in their PED investigation.
“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, via Zac Jackson of ProFootballTalk. “That’s just the bargaining agreement that the players signed.”
Harrison thinks that, if the NFL seriously thinks they have a case against Harrison, they should present it to the public.
“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.”
There is, to be clear, no chance of this happening. Still, Harrison’s bluster is a lot of fun. He’s been sounding off about this for a while. It would be interesting to see if the NFL does have any evidence against him.
