    Default Steelers' Harrison appeals two fines

    Steelers' Harrison appeals two fines

    Gregory ShamusSteelers LB James Harrison.Steelers linebacker James Harrison pled his side when he appealed two fines totaling $90,000 to the NFL this morning.

    "We told our side of the story and I think we told it well," said Bill Parise, Harrison's agent.

    The appeal came in the form of a conference call among Parise and Harrison in Pittsburgh, NFL Players Association legal counsel Todd Flanagan in Washington, D.C. and two unnamed men from the NFL commissioner's office in New York.

    Harrison appealed the $75,000 fine the NFL issued him for what it called an illegal hit of Cleveland wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi Oct. 17, and for another on New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees Oct. 31.

    Parise predicted a ruling within 10 days.

    "James opened both hearings with his view of his actions, the motivation for his actions and what happened," Parise said. "His story has been consistent from day one: If I'm fined for Massauquoi hit at all it's wrong. He didn't do anything wrong."

    Harrison maintains that it was the actions of the receiver who caused the hit to his head and that it never involved helmet-to-helmet. He also said in his appeal that his helmet never struck Brees in the back but that it went to his side.

    "Did we do any good? I don't know. We certainly made our case," Parise said

    Just wondering... has there ever been a successful appeal? Kind of seems like an exercise in futility
