James Harrison regrets insulting Roger Goodell with anti-gay slur
Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison says he should have used “better vocabulary” when expressing his anger toward NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in a Men's Journal magazine article released earlier this month.
The four-time Pro Bowl player used an anti-gay slur to describe Goodell and says he knows he attacked Goodell on a personal level with his “careless words.”
There has been no decision from the league on whether to discipline Harrison for his comments.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and running back Rashard Mendenhall, whom Harrison also criticized in the article, say they've cleared the air with him and expect no issues going forward.
