James Harrison has been hit with three fines already in 2010, and Tuesday he and agent Bill Parise took to a conference call to appeal the fines which have totaled $95,000.
“We told our side of the story and I think we told it well,” said Bill Parise, Harrison’s agent. “James opened both hearings with his view of his actions, the motivation for his actions and what happened. “His story has been consistent from day one: If I’m fined for Massaquoi hit at all it’s wrong. He didn’t do anything wrong.”
In on the conference call were 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 and Parise are hoping to have an answer in about 10 days on the outcome if the fines will be brought down, even a little bit.
