Roger Goodell took to the podium at the NFL owners' meetings in Indianapolis on Wednesday to address the lockout. He also talked about the new rule changes in place to improve player safety.
Unfortunately, no one asked him specifically about James Harrison hopping on Twitter Tuesday night and calling the NFL's rule-makers "idiots."
"I'm absolutely sure now after this last rule change that the people making the rules at the NFL are idiots," Harrison tweeted.
Harrison was referring to the new "club accountability" rule the NFL announced Tuesday. Under that rule, teams with a certain number of players (currently undetermined) who violate player safety rules will be fined a certain amount of money (also currently undetermined).
Harrison wasn't the only Steeler who took umbrage to the NFL's recent decision.
"Thoughts on "the Steelers rule"??? lol im sorry that im not sorry we hit 2 hard," LaMarr Woodley tweeted Wednesday morning.
Referring to the NFL's implementation of club accountability as the "Steeler rule" probably won't win Woodley any fans on Park Avenue, but it's probably pretty accurate.
After all, Art Rooney acknowledged that the Steelers would have been one of the "three or four teams" who received a fine in 2010 had the rule been in place.
And you can expect Steelers fans to get upset, and Steelers players to accuse the league of targeting their franchise. The reality is, though, that you'll be hard-pressed to find a team that more flagrantly violated the helmet-to-helmet and defenseless receiver rules than Pittsburgh in 2010.
Many people will call that "just playing real football" or some other cliche. But it won't matter if the league doesn't agree.
