Steelers Safety Mike Mitchell Goes On Profanity-Laced Rant About NFL Discipline, Commissioner Roger Goodell

Watch: Steelers Safety Mike Mitchell Unloads on NFL Discipline Procedure, Roger Goodell

But he said, "I feel like I gotta ask a guy, hey, are you ready for me to hit you right now?"

Specifically, Mitchell took specific issue with Cincinnati's George Iloka and Pittsburgh's JuJu Smith-Schuster receiving the same on-game suspension that New England's Rob Gronkowski did, given that Iloka and Smith-Schuster's hits came during a play while Gronkowski's was made in frustration after a play was already completed.

"At the end of the day this is foot". He wants to hit dudes and he wants to play the game of football the way he grew up playing it.

Roger Goodell signed a five-year extension Wednesday to remain commissioner of the NFL. And Gronkowski and Smith-Schuster both deserved to face consequences for breaking the league's rules on contact with defenseless players. But if you don't want to get injured, don't come out here. "Think about what you ask us to do", Mitchell said. "You wanna see flag football, then let's take our pads off". There was screaming about dirty play, there are questions about the NFL's handling of in-game penalties and ejections and just a lot of vitriol spilling over into the general conversation. "You know what's going to happen with repetitive head trauma". That would make it easier for me, because I don't gotta wear heavy (expletive, ) but give us flags because then I know what we're playing.

Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou Aiming For UFC 220 in January
Joshua and Wilder are feared for their incredible power with both men accumulating an impressive knockout record. The heavyweight sensation has taken the UFC by storm following his utter violence inside the famed Octagon.

I'm gonna mess around and get hurt trying to protect an offensive player because he's running an over route. He said that a $50,000 fine from two years ago resulted from Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton throwing a "bad ball" to tight end Tyler Eifert. It makes no sense.

Umenyiora, who won two Super Bowls with the Giants, has seen the evidence, and when studies show 110 of 111 brains of dead NFL players were bruised with CTE, he thinks the days of wondering if football could be hazardous to your health are over. He also took a shot at ESPN analyst Matt Hasselbeck. I donate more money to Cincinnati to underprivileged kids than probably the people on the Bengals. "We've got to get better leadership as who's running the league". Some players have been fined, some have been suspended, some are still in concussion protocol. "We can't have a guy where you just hand out discipline how you see fit. There needs to be a set of guidelines".

"I don't like to compare players and suspensions, things like that, but if you look at what Gronk did and what JuJu did and they got the same suspension - I don't know if that's necessarily fair", Roethlisberger 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.
