    Though Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison did not have a stake in Saturday night's game between the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the recently suspended defender found reason to protest one play.

    With two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, Cowboys safety Abram Elam lowered his shoulder into the chest of Buccaneers wide receiver Micheal Spurlock as the ball sailed by. No penalty was called on the play.

    Harrison, whose one-game suspension for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Browns quarterback Colt McCoy was upheld Friday, took to Twitter to voice his displeasure with the lack of a penalty.

    1st of all the receiver was looking at Elam at the time of the hit. 2nd he didn't lead with his helmet. That said, I was surprised there was no flag even though I wouldn't have called one either.

    I have to admit, this was the first time in a long time where I thought the officials were giving the cowboys a break on some calls. This one in particular I expected the flag to come out, but it never did.

    I guess that is what happens when you play one of the few teams in the NFL that actually racks up more penalties on average than the cowboys.

    "Teacher, teacher! Elam is hitting people, too! Why doesn't he get a time out? WAHHHHHH!"

    Pipe down and take your medicine, jerkface.

    You can also tell that Elam actually pulled up a little bit, he could have really walloped that WR.

    And yes, like others said, he led with the shoulder.

    Looks like Goose might have been right last week about earning the official's respect when you're a penalty prone team.

    He may be. And if he is, what he said describes "bias" perfectly. Call it the same for everybody.

    I wish Harrison would get kicked out of the NFL. He's a piece of crap.

    He says "It must be just us."
    Just you that the refs give touchdowns to when your team doesnt cross the goalline? (Against Ravens a few seasons ago and against Seattle in Super Bowl)
    Just you that the refs HANDED you a ring?
    Just you that when you fumble and another team comes up with the ball, the refs give it back to YOUR team?

    Tell you what. we will give up a 15 yard penalty if you give up your 2005 championship ring. How's that cry baby?
