Steelers safety Mike Mitchell rips officiating: 'Just hand us all some flags'

"Hand us all some flags and we'll go out there and try to grab the flags off", Mitchell said, via ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

The Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals engaged in a nasty game Monday night with many viscous hits. On Sunday, after a play, Gronkowski used a heavily padded elbow to drive a blow into the back of the head of Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White, resulting in a concussion. I've changed my family legacy by this handsome game of football forever.

Mitchell is angry and he wants the National Football League to hear it. And Gronkowski and Smith-Schuster both deserved to face consequences for breaking the league's rules on contact with defenseless players. You never see us get to line somebody up in a hole like a linebacker. "Think about what you ask us to do", Mitchell said.

"If you want to see flag football, let us take our pads off and make it easier for me". There was screaming about dirty play, there are questions about the NFL's handling of in-game penalties and ejections and just a lot of vitriol spilling over into the general conversation. "I feel like I gotta ask an offensive player, 'Is it OK for me to hit you right now before I hit you?' And that's insane".

"They're just trying to reduce the long-term effects of what we know that are happening to people", Umenyiora said. And at first you're taking our money but now I've got [expletives] like Matt Hasselbeck calling me a dirty player and trying my character and we've never met before. It makes no sense. I donate more money to Cincinnati to underprivileged kids than probably the people on the Bengals.

Jones had said he did not feel the committee understood his demand that all owners have a voice in approving the terms of Goodell's extension. We can't have a guy where you just hand out discipline on how you see fit. There needs to be a set guideline on how you do what you do.

"I don't like to compare players and suspensions, things like that, but if you look at what Gronk did and what JuJu did and they got the same suspension - I don't know if that's necessarily fair", Roethlisberger said. Audio also includes Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey.
