Former Giants star hits back at 'ridiculous' flag football rant

Former Giants star hits back at 'ridiculous' flag football rant

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. You go do that. We gotta get better leadership as who's running the league, because obviously everybody from fans, owners, players are all disappointed in Roger Goodell.We can't have a guy where you just hand out discipline on how you see fit.

Legendary Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis said Thursday on Undisputed that due to the threat of fines and suspensions for the type of hits that coaches would celebrate, defenders don't know how to play anymore within the rules. That's 50 grand out of my pocket though, because Andy throws a bad ball. That's insane. I'm going to mess around and get hurt trying to protect an offensive player because he's running an over route. 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.

"I'm gonna come after you with everything I have", Jones said, according to ESPN. So don't give me that name. At the end of the day this is Foot-Ball. "You know what I'm saying?" "There's just so much going on in the game right now".

Goodell and the NFL's compensation committee reached agreement Wednesday on a five-year extension worth up to $200 million, one that could top out at about $40 million annually with close to 90 per cent tied to incentives. Contact is only going to become more legislated, and the players who don't adjust will have a hard time staying in the league.

"Make it viral #FireGoodell #MakeFootballFootballAgain #FreeJuju", Mitchell tweeted. Hate to say it but cmon.

"But let's not try to turn football into a risky, barbaric game".

The other suspension came on a head-scratching Rob Gronkowski WWE-esqe move on the Buffalo Bills Tre'Davious White following an interception.

On Wednesday, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said he didn't think Smith-Schuster deserved the suspension. And the National Football League said Wednesday that they did not consider his post-play taunting of Burfict as a factor in his discipline, according to the AP's Will Graves. The important thing is, the owners have confidence in Roger, and they wanted him to continue. There's no way - I see two people get post-play penalties, post-play infractions that don't have to do with football and you get the same suspension as a guy who is making a football play in a football game. "But that's above all of our pay grades".
