Why did the NFL Lockout Really End?

Last season, Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison had been fined a total of $125,000 for four “incidents” by the time December rolled around. While head coach Mike Tomlin publicly stated that Harrison needed to “change his playing style,” many NFL fans – especially Steeler fans – felt Harrison was being unfairly targeted by the league.

Harrison evidently felt that way as well, calling commissioner Roger Goodell a “crook” and a “dictator” in an interview with Men’s Journal.

With that, one must imagine that Harrison’s 2011 fine total will be somewhere in the ballpark of last season’s. Roger Goodell certainly does.
