Mike Mitchell: Pittsburgh Steelers defender wants Roger Goodell fired

Share

He's upset that George Iloka's suspension for hitting Antonio Brown helmet to helmet was lifted, but JuJu Smith-Schuster's hit on Vontaze Burfict was upheld on appeal. On Tuesday Mitchell went on a Twitter rant about the National Football League giving Schuster the same punishment as New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski for his cheap shot on Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White.

"At the end of the day this is football", Mitchell said. Smith-Schuster's was not. That really got Mitchell mad.

Roger Goodell has signed a contract extension to remain the commissioner of the National Football League, according to a letter from the league's compensation committee that was sent to owners on Wednesday.

The league has notably taken precautions in recent years to help protect their players, however, the rules are mostly favored for those on offense.

PlayStation 4 Sales Surpass 70 Million Units Worldwide
Adding to the PS4's success is PS VR, which, as of December 3, 2017, has sold through more than 2 million units to consumers. An impressive number, this latest statistic puts the console within ten million units of it's predecessor, the PS3.

Whew. OK. Video below - via Mark Kaboly of The Athletic Pittsburgh - in case you want to watch it, and you should, because it's epic. "Think about what you ask us to do", Mitchell told reporters. "You wanna see flag football, then let's take our pads off".

"Just hand us all some flags", Mitchell said, per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. You don't know me, you've never had a conversation with me. Give us flags for me to pull off so that way I know what we are playing. I feel like I gotta ask a guy 'hey are you ready for me to hit you right now?' before I hit you.

Mitchell said that happened two years ago on his hit on Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert, eliciting a hefty fine.

"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".

"We're always the last line of defense on bang-bang plays".

Earlier in the week, Mitchell specifically called out Gronkowski on Twitter. You suspend a kid for playing hard. Make that make sense. 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 donate more money to Cincinnati underprivileged kids than, probably, the people on the Bengals".

If players want that to change with the next CBA, they're going to have to prepare to miss some games. "We've got to get better leadership as who's running the league". "We can't have a guy where you hand out discipline as you see fit, there needs to be a set guideline of how we do what we do". "And I guess (Iloka's suspension) got overturned because AB got up and scored a touchdown?" Audio also includes Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey.
