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

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

That brings us to Steelers safety Mike Mitchell, who sounded off on the NFL's over-policing of player safety while speaking to reporters Wednesday.

Mitchell was the most vocal among Steelers players who voiced displeasure with the league Wednesday after rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster's one-game suspension was upheld on appeal, but Cincinnati Bengals free safety George Iloka's was rescinded and reduced to a $36,000 fine. 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.

Mitchell, a former second-round pick now in his ninth season, also expressed a common theme among defenders, which is the game is almost impossible for them with the current rules in place. 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. If the National Football League was smart, they would consider implementing this rule into their own guidelines for both the safety of their players and protection of their brands.

In it, players will battle each other on the same screen on "unique and evolving battlefields". Each battle can be customized by players using various settings.

"At first you're taking our money, but now I've got a-holes like Matt Hasselbeck calling me a dirty player and trying my character and we've never met before". You have to know the risk when you sign up. "I donate more money to Cincinnati underprivileged kids than, probably, the people on the Bengals". Don't judge me on what you see on football, because football's my competitive side. Because we're not playing football.

"Fans, owners, players are all disappointed in Roger Goodell". Let's not try to turn football into a unsafe, barbaric game. If you don't want to be a little kid and get your ass hit, don't come out here. "There needs to be a set of guidelines". At the end of the day this is Foot-Ball.

"This ain't football", Mitchell said. If you wanna see flag football, then let's take our pads off, that would make it easier for me. Before I was drafted, I had $368 in my bank account. After one of the worst weekends in recent memory involving illegal hits and suspensions being handed down to a number of popular players (including a certain rambunctious New England Patriots tight end), it's obvious that adjustments need to be made in order to avoid more cheap shots from occurring. "We can't have a guy where you just hand out discipline how you see fit".
