Steelers' Mike Mitchell Rails At The NFL's Inconsistency On Suspensions For Hits

Pittsburgh Steelers free safety Mike Mitchell is not happy with the state of football. More

Steelers safety Mike Mitchell went off on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and the state of the league Wednesday afternoon, railing against the inconsistency of how hits, legal or not, are policed.

Lewis goes on to make a freakish point about women's MMA, but then says that forcing defenders to give opponents time to make a football move is "not football".

"I'm gonna mess around and get hurt trying to protect an offensive player because he's running an over route", Mitchell said, per Deadspin. That would make it easier for me. Now, I don't have to wear heavy s--. I feel like I gotta ask a guy 'hey are you ready for me to hit you right now?' before I hit you.

Mitchell pointed out that some of the illegal hits result from quarterbacks throwing an inaccurate pass that forces a receiver to dive, resulting in the player being hit in the head. Andy Dalton threw a ball to Tyler Eifert two years ago. It seems to be more about P.R. than precedent, and it's important that the league have a system that makes clear what will and what won't result in significant consequences. That's 50 grand out of my pocket though, because Andy throws a bad ball. Before I was drafted, I had $368 in my bank account. "Make that make sense", said Mitchell of the 2015 play. "You know what's going to happen with repetitive head trauma".

When it has earlier halted production December 1, the studio cited the absence the " unexpected unavailability " of the filmmaker. Dexter Fletcher has been tapped to replace Bryan Singer as director on the almost completed Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody .

"That's what we would always say, the players on that Steelers team who voted "no" were players who could talk about the CBA without being hypocritical", Batch said. "I donate more money to Cincinnati underprivileged kids than, probably, the people on the Bengals". My nephew goes to school there and I take all that personally. I've changed my family legacy by this lovely game of football forever. If you don't know me and you've never had a conversation with me, don't judge us on what you see in football, because football's my competitive side. "You know what I'm saying?" "We've got to get better leadership as who's running the league".

The Steelers' current NFLPA rep, left guard Ramon Foster, said that if players want to see changes in Goodell's power over player discipline, they're going to have to be willing to sacrifice for it with a players strike.

Removing those high hits from the game, and fining, penalizing and suspending those who level them, should never be confused with taking the soul out of football. "We can't have a guy where you just hand out discipline how you see fit". There needs to be a set guideline on how you do what you do.

"It's the stupidest thing in the world", center Maurkice Pouncey said. Given that Goodell makes more than all of them despite his tumultuous tenure, he had to expect disapproval around the National Football League after his extension.
