Steelers' Mike Mitchell Ranting About NFL Policing Hits Is Must

GettyImages-631230280

Steelers safety Mike Mitchell has had enough of fines and suspensions for dirty hits.

Monday night's ugly clash between the Steelers and Bengals, which featured multiple-head on collisions that sent players to the hospital and prompted suspensions, has drawn strong reactions throughout the league. These comments stem from the penalties received by Bengals safety George Iloka and Steelers receiver Juju Smith Schuster during the game on Monday, both of which were extremely controversial in nature, and the latter of which resulted in Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict being carted off the field due to injury. In one moment, he asks us not to make football out to be an "dangerous, barbaric" sport; the next, he's defending it by comparing it to combat and saying that injuries are just part of real football. But to summarize, Mitchell thinks the National Football League is trying to legislate physical contact out of the game and he's not a bit happy about it. How about a one-year subscription to the ultimate sports streaming service in Canada, with access to every NFL game, as well as soccer, tennis, hockey and now, Canada's men's and women's national FIBA team.

Mitchell has firmly entrenched himself in the "THIS IS NOT FOOTBAW!" crowd, which is usually reserved for CTE-ridden players from the 70s and 80s. But if you don't want to get injured, don't come out here. I'll leave that one for you to decide, Nation. "I donate more money to Cincinnati underprivileged kids than probably people on the Bengals, so don't give me that name". We can't have a guy where you just hand out discipline on how you see fit. He discusses the need for the players to take some of the blame and be better when it comes to signing the next CBA and the disappointment in Roger Goodell and the NFL's inconsistent suspension policy. "There needs to be a set of guidelines".

What do you think, Nation? You suspend a kid for playing hard. Let's not try to turn football into a unsafe, barbaric game.

Mitchell strongly disagrees that Gronkowski deserves the same suspension as Smith-Schuster, who was making a football play.

"This is foot.ball, if you want to see flag football then let's take our pads off, that'll make it easier for me cause then I don't have to wear heavy s-", he said. To that, Mitchell said, "good for Troy". "And that's insane. I'm gonna mess around and get hurt trying to protect an offensive player because he's running an over route".
