You are a grown man making millions of dollars and playing a sport where children look up to you. There should be no room for these kinds of antics. Tempers do flare, and there is a way of settling things. But to go online and become a keyboard commando threating the life of someone, is not the way to do it. And all of this over a tackle that caused an injury. What is the NFL coming to?
“During the Week Eight contest in Pittsburgh, Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict applied a hit to Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell that resulted in a season-ending knee injury. After the game, Steelers linebacker Vince Williams posted a tweet that Burfict and other Bengals players regarded as a death threat: “I catch Vontaze on south beach im painting that boi on sight.” – Reported by Mike Florio
