Brent Musburger: 'Snowflakes' stop 'preaching' about NFL violence – New York Post

One day after an ugly prime-time football game that spurred multiple suspensions, former ESPN and ABC broadcaster Brent Musburger took to Twitter to defend the brutality of the sport.

Yo,Snowflakes. 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 league announced on Tuesday that wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster and defensive back George Iloka would each be suspended for a game following two separate hits – both considered to be on defenseless players – during Pittsburgh’s 23-20 win over Cincinnati on Monday night.

ESPN reported that both players appealed. Smith-Schuster’s punishment was already upheld, while a decision on Iloka will be released on Wednesday.

Smith-Schuster laid a crackback block on Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict that warranted two flags – one for the blow, and one for taunting, as Smith-Schuster stood over his target.

Iloka’s suspension stemmed from a helmet-to-helmet hit on Antonio Brown after the Steelers receiver corralled the game-tying touchdown late in the fourth quarter.

There was a frightening scene earlier in the evening when Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier suffered a serious spine injury making a tackle. Shazier was immediately transported to the hospital, where he is currently in the midst of a critical 24-48 hour time period for his recovery.

Overall, there were nine personal fouls called on the two teams.
