Steelers safety Mike Mitchell blasts National Football League officials in rant

Steelers S Mike Mitchell sheds light on physicality of NFL

Steelers S Mike Mitchell sheds light on physicality of NFL

"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". Many players like Tatum and Ronnie Lott and Chuck Cecil made careers out of playing the game a certain way that the league has consciously tried to take out of the sport. Now, I don't have to wear heavy [expletive]. But give me flags to pull off so I know what we're playing. 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. "And that's insane. I'm gonna mess around and get hurt trying to protect an offensive player because he's running an over route". "But from the players' standpoint, I just don't understand what they're doing, what they're talking about, because the evidence is there", he added. "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? Dammit, your quarterback shouldn't have thrown the ball messed up".

Mitchell, who is in his ninth year as a pro, referenced his hit two years ago on Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert. Most recently, he was fined twice for illegal hits during the Steelers' Week 6 victory against the Kansas City Chiefs. Mitchell is paying attention to those who label him dirty. That's 50 grand out of my pocket though, because Andy throws a bad ball. "I donate more money to Cincinnati underprivileged kids than probably people on the Bengals, so don't give me that name". What makes Mitchell's comments so intriguing is that he has continued to preach physicality for the game despite the severity of teammate Ryan Shazier's devastating injury. My nephew goes to school there. "You know what I'm saying?" "There's just this whole aura of the game is macho and all these types of things that people don't care what the consequences are going to be a little later on", Umenyiora said.

Mitchell was also highly critical of the National Football League on Twitter, where he called for Commissioner Roger Goodell to be fired as news broke that Goodell signed a five-year contract extension. "We've just got to do better", Mitchell said.

"Obviously, everybody from fans to owners to players are all disappointed in Roger Goodell". But, you know, I thought what happened - the play that happened - happened in the context of a football play. "We can't have a guy where you just hand out discipline how you see fit. There needs to be a set of guidelines". Audio also includes Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey.
