Steelers' Mike Mitchell Ranting About NFL Policing Hits Is Must

"Ball", Mitchell said in a video posted by Mark Kaboly of TheAlthetic.com.

Meanwhile, the National Football League has since overturned the one-game suspension that was also initially given to Bengals safety George Iloka for his hit on superstar wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Smith-Schuster will now have to serve the same punishment as New England Patriots superstar tight end Rob Gronkowski, whose blatant cheap shot on Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious was, by far, the dirtiest hit the league has seen all year. "At the end of the day, this is FOOT-BALL".

JuJu Smith-Schuster (No. 19) picked up a one-game suspension for his high hit on Vontaze Burfict.

While we all can rally around Mitchell's sentiment it is not what the National Football League wants and it is not what many fans want. You want the collisions, you want all those things. "Think about what you ask us to do", Mitchell told reporters.

"This is football. If you want to see flag football then let's take our pads off".

Despite the missile being close enough to be seen by the pilots, the airline is not planning to change its flying routes at the moment.

Former Giants star Osi Umenyiora took offense to Mitchell's rant, which included several references to the idea of just playing flag football and "this is a man's game". You have to know the risk when you sign up. "That would make it easier for me, cause then I don't have to wear heavy (expletive)". I feel like I've got to ask a guy, 'Hey, are you ready for me to hit you right now before I hit you?

"We're always the last line of defense on bang-bang plays". But, you know, I thought what happened - the play that happened - happened in the context of a football play.

"They go to their locker rooms, they go to their meeting rooms and their players are praising them, their coaches are praising them, but their check, their wallets are being deducted thousands of dollars for doing what we learned how to do to come into this game". In no way was he tryna hurt AB just like I know @TeamJuJu wasn't trying to hurt #55. And at first you're taking our money but now I've got [expletives] like Matt Hasselbeck calling me a dirty player and trying my character and we've never met before.

In the video above, Mitchell seems to suggest that the league needs better leadership to handle these sorts of situations going forward. I donate more money to Cincinnati to underprivileged kids than probably the people on the Bengals. Make that make sense. "We've just got to do better", Mitchell said.

"Obviously, everybody from fans to owners to players are all disappointed in Roger Goodell. There's just so much going on in the game right now". Without it, players won't know where the line is between a fine and a suspension. It's absolutely absurd. But like I said, man, Steelers versus the world.
