Steelers safety Mike Mitchell rips National Football League for officiating on hard hits

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

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

The speed of the game simply doesn't allow for less hitting, Mitchell said.

Mitchell - who himself has been fined four times for unsafe hits and taunting - was referring to the Monday Night Football fiasco in which Pittsburgh's JuJu Smith-Schuster and Cincinnati's George Iloka were handed one-game suspensions for separate hits on opposing players. Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was also suspended one game for his late hit last week.

"At the end of the day this is foot".

Fellow porn stars say August Ames' death is related to cyberbullying
Jaxton Wheeler is a 30-year-old male adult performer who has worked in adult entertainment for a number of years. Ames claimed that medical testing was different for straight vs gay sex scenes, and did not want to participate.

No one has to turn football into a unsafe game.

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.

The league has notably taken precautions in recent years to help protect their players, however, the rules are mostly favored for those on offense. You want the collisions, you want all those things. And you're complaining because the league is taking steps to at least try and reduce it. "Make it flag football".

Remembering Pearl Harbor, 76 years later
Much previous years, the ceremony will begin at the chapel on base and conclude with wreath-laying at the Pearl Harbor memorial. When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, Gannam was reportedly trying to save aircraft when he was killed.

"When you think about what they're doing to defenders... defenders now don't have a clue how to play football anymore". But give us flags for me to pull off, because that way I know what we're playing. 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. Andy Dalton threw a ball to Tyler Eifert two years ago.

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. Make that make sense.

Mitchell also received a $48,000 fine for a Week 6 hit on Chiefs running back Charcandrick West, though he appealed. I donate more money to Cincinnati underprivileged kids than probably people on the Bengals. "There's just so much going on in the game right now". We've got to do better as players when we sign the next CBA. But, you know, I thought what happened - the play that happened - happened in the context of a football play.

The Steelers' current NFLPA rep, left guard Ramon Foster, said that if players want to see changes in Goodell's power over player discipline, they're going to have to be willing to sacrifice for it with a players strike. There needs to be a set guideline on how you do what you do. Without it, players won't know where the line is between a fine and a suspension. "It's absolutely absurd. But like I said, it's Steelers vs the world". "You hit them in the pocket and in that way money always talks".
