OK... Here we go again...
Obviously, Harrison is not a diplomat...
Some of what we have had from Harrison.
On Goodell: ""If that man was on fire and I had to piss to put him
out, I wouldn't do it," Harrison said, per the Associated Press""
Harrison also called Goodell a "crook" and a "devil" and a "puppet"
and a "dictator." Harrison also called Goodell somthing that reports
are clling an "anti-gay slur,"" See below
Here is my bro bono written statement for Harrison...
"I have nothing to apologize for... The associated press can apologize
to me for misrepresenting me in the press. I didn't make any anti
homosexual statements. I don't even know what Godelle does in his
spare time when he isnt scape goating me for the physical nature of
our sport. When I say he's being gay, I mean he's being a real sissy,
not a homosexual. May be I need to apologize for slurring every 90
pound weakling in the world, but I don't have any problems with what
anyone one does like that in their personal life. I want an honest
apology from them about that. This is real nonsense... First I'm
getting targeted because I hit people on a football field and now I'm
getting blamed for this ??? Come on man... "
