Steelers S Mike Mitchell sheds light on physicality of NFL

The World According to Gary: NFL commissioner Roger Goodell signs 5-year contract extension

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.

Pittsburgh linebacker Ryan Shazier will not require surgery after suffering a back injury during his team's win over the Cincinnati Bengals, the Steelers said Tuesday. The first was on a brutal hit by Juju Smith-Shuster on Vontaze Burfict followed by a shot from George Iloka on Antonio Brown's late-touchdown.

"We've got to do better as players when we sign the next CBA", Mitchell said, referring to the collective bargaining agreement that runs through the 2020 season.

While some find Mitchell's point of view and brand of football draconian and unsafe, he gives voice to others who feel the game is under attack and that the violence on the field is a necessary part of the sport that participants have signed up for.

"This is a combat, contact sport", Mitchell said, while seemingly supporting Iloka's innocence.

Google's DeepMind AI Claims Chess Crown
AlphaZero was instructed only on the ruleset of chess and nothing more. "This algorithm could run cities, continents, universes". The details about the Google's feat were published on the Arvix website of the Cornell University.

Mitchell has firmly entrenched himself in the "THIS IS NOT FOOTBAW!" crowd, which is usually reserved for CTE-ridden players from the 70s and 80s.

Well, then have we ever got something for you. You don't know me. "I donate more money to Cincinnati underprivileged kids than probably people on the Bengals, so don't give me that name". "We're always the last line of defense on bang-bang plays". We gotta get better leadership as who's running the league, because obviously everybody, from fans, owners, players are all disappointed in Roger Goodell. If you don't want to be a little kid and get your ass hit, don't come out here.

What do you think, Nation? There needs to be a set guideline on how you do what you do. Many have ripped the NFL for giving Smith-Schuster the same penalty it gave Gronkowski, whose hit was among the most indefensible the league has ever seen. If you wanna see flag football, then let's take our pads off, that would make it easier for me. "We can't have a guy where you just hand out discipline how you see fit". 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.

"This ain't football", Mitchell said. He wants to hit dudes and he wants to play the game of football the way he grew up playing it.
