Burfict will maim or kill someone if not checked. Playing linebacker and with his size, speed and tempermant it's bound to happen. Sure his history played a roll as well. With Beckham a slap fight may break out.twistedoak said:well why should it be longer then what beckam jr received?
in fact beckam jr was far more out of control then burfict
6. He spit on Decastro. That's why during that one play, Decastro blew him up and drove him ten yards down the field and landed on him.TraskOutdoors said:Because of Burfict's body of work.
He has a history both in college and he pros of this kind of behavior.
Remember when he was twisting ankles after he whistle during a game against Carolina?
Even the Ravens called him out for his dirty play.
In Saturday's game alone he:
1.Attempted to stomp on Ramon Foster's foot after the whistle.
2.Left the bench to engage Steelers after the Shazier hit on Bernard.
3.Gave Ben an extra knee to the shoulder on his sack, after the whistle.
4.Layed out Brown with a hit to the helmet that was way more vicious than Beckham on Norman.
5.He was in official's faces all night and at times the Bengal coaches were trying to contain him because even the sideline reporter was saying that he was out of control.
Burfict isn't a passionate player that just got caught up in the moment, he has a history of dirty play and out of control behavior.
BTW, if you look it up you can find a video of Pacman Jones taking Amari Cooper to the ground, ripping his helmet off, and then slamming Cooper's head into his own helmet in the Bengals/Raiders game this year.
Couple of real class acts...
Whether he's a thug or not doesn't even matter. The NFL is loaded with thugs. The point is, he is selfish and mentally weak. His actions directly contributed to his teams loss.twistedoak said:
With Harrison, it was right after the new rules, and all the stuff he did was related to actual football related stuff. With Burfict, this is just not the case. If the AB hit was the only thing, I'd say a fine, maybe one game. But it's not. Spitting on Decastro. Stomping on Foster after the whistle. Trying to fight the Steeler defense by COMING OFF THE SIDELINE. Trying to break Newton and Olsen's ankles. Striking another man in the groin (a CLEAR violation of Man Code, btw). None of that is actually related to the game of football.TraskOutdoors said:.twistedoak said:
He has been fined many times by the NFL for his out of control play.
He was fined $31,000 in 2013 against the Packers for hitting a defenseless reciever (James Jones) and striking Ryan Taylor in the groin.
In 2014 he was fined for twisting both Cam Newton's and Greg Olsen's ankles in a game against Carolina.
Just a few weeks ago he was fined for diving at Roethlisberger's legs.
And then his masterpiece, the Burfict Storm if you will, on Saturday night.
Tried to stomp on Foster's foot after the whistle...
Drives his knee into Ben's shoulder after Ben was already on the ground and the whistle had blown.
Spit in Decastro's face.
Ran onto the field along with Hill to engage Steelers after the Shazier hit.
Was in officials faces all night.
And then....the finish touch....driving his shoulder into Brown's helmet.
Beckham may have been out of control and committed an egregious offense, but he has no history that is anything like Burfict's which goes all the way back to college when he was diving at Matt Barkley's knees and head butting Oregon State's QB, Katz...
