But this stuff is hard to believe....
Trust me this sort of stupid behavior happens a lot....

This game is being referred to a lot in media. Donald Trump used the game as a political metaphor of how soft the nation has got as compared to the days of the NFL when Dick Butkus and Ray Nitschke played. There was a segment about it on National Public Radio on players getting knocked out carried off the field with penalties getting called and not getting called, referring how the violence of the NFL is like addiction where viewers have difficulty turning away from watching the game on TV. Rush Limbaugh referred to the toxic atmosphere of the Steelers-Bengals game as the kind of toxic atmosphere Obama is trying to create between Democrats and Republicans with his choice of guests in his upcoming State of the Union address to the joint meeting of Congress.

Ben Roethlisberger's comments on Saturday's game .....


"On Tuesday, during his weekly interview with 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh, Big Ben talked about Vontaze Burfict, the Bengals' linebacker that will now serve a three-game suspension for his antics during the Steelers' Wild Card win in Cincinnati. It was Burfict's hit that led to Roethlisberger's right shoulder injuries, as Big Ben will look to overcome an AC joint sprain and ligament damage to try to play in Sunday's AFC divisional round game against the Broncos.


“I do not think it was a dirty hit,” Roethlisberger said. “I think he was playing the game… I know that there is some video of him supposedly kneeing me, or kicking me, or whatever, but I don’t think there was anything intentional.”


Big Ben also addressed Burfict's hit on Antonio Brown, which drew a 15-yard penalty after Brown fell to the ground with concussion....


“I think he was just trying to make a play,” Roethlisberger said. “As fast as the game is, as fast as all that happens, you’ve got to be pretty good to intentionally try and do something like that. Do I think it was a penalty? Yes. I think that it was a hit to a defensive player to the head, absolutely. But I don’t think it was an intentional hit.”

Huge difference between Shazier hit and Burfict. Bernard caught the ball and took two steps and turned. Definitely questionable, might have been illegal, but hardly dirty. Shazier even apologized after saying he never would want to hurt anyone no matter what. Shazier was making a tackle.

Burfict's hit was after the ball was on the ground. He jumped up and shouldered him in the head. No form at all. No remorse, either. Burfict has had a ton of hits like that and deserves punishment. Shazier has no history of dirty hits. Of course we have idiots like Burfict, but guess what...they have the wherewithal not to f up with less than 2 minutes left and the lead LOL half of winning is knowing how to win

IMO, Ben was just being politically correct and taking the high road when he made those statements. We all saw what Burfict was up to, even seasoned sports figures and announcers were saying he needed to be brought under control.

The irony is, the Bengals had the game won, but they chose to lose sight of what they were there to do and what they needed to do to win. They did it to themselves and have no one else to blame.

Don1945 ...... I considered that Ben might have just been "taking the high road" but keep in mind, he didn't have any trouble calling out Burfict for his tackle at his ankles in the December game. Regardless, people are going to believe what they want to believe even if the players actually involved say otherwise.
