Brent Musburger is all for TD’s and A in football, regardless of how many players are carted off the field with injuries.
The former ESPN and ABC broadcaster took to Twitter late Tuesday to defend violence — and sex — in the NFL one night after two harsh hits made headlines in the Steelers vs. Bengals game.
“Yo, Snowflakes,” Musburger began, “quit preaching.
“The Violent World of Sam Huff sold NFL football to the masses. The Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders gave us a little sex with our violence. Deal with it!”
The NFL suspended both Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and Bengals safety George Iloka one game each for two separate hits during the primetime Monday Night Football game.
Both hits, the league said, were on defenseless players.
Smith-Schuster crushed Cincinnati linebacker Vontaze Burfict on a block in the fourth quarter and just minutes later Iloka laid a brutal hit on Steelers receiver Antonio Brown in the end zone on a touchdown catch.
Burfict was carted off the field.
Neither players were suspended from the game.
Earlier during the same matchup, Pittsburgh’s Ryan Shazier left the field on a stretcher after suffering a serious spine injury on a tackle in the first quarter.
Shazier’s helmet took the brunt of a hit on Bengals receiver Josh Malone. Players from both teams were clearly shaken up as Shazier was transported off the field and to the hospital.
Smith-Schuster and Iloka joined Rob Gronkowski as players suspended for harsh hits this past weekend.
Gronk was docked one game for a late hit on the Buffalo’s Tre’Davious White long after a play was called dead.
