Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison seemed to enjoy the Super Bowl XLV media day on Tuesday. He joked around with reporters, compared players getting hurt to kids stubbing their toes and then seized an opportunity to mock NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Harrison was asked about how the game could be made safer.

"Lay pillows down where I tackle them so they don't get hurt when they hit the ground... Mr. Goodell," Harrison said.

The 32-year-old drew $125,000 in fines this season and said that he believed he was being targeted by referees for hard hits.

Some of his fines include $75,000 for hitting Browns receiver Mohamed Massaquoi and $25,000 for roughing Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
