Raiders LB Vontaze Burfict Completely Rips Roger Goodell Apart In Crazy Interview
© Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports
Oakland Raiders LB Vontaze Burfict was suspended for final 12 games and any potential playoff games after a helmet-to-helmet hit on Colts tight end Jack Doyle on Sept. 29. So he shared some thoughts on the whole Myles Garrett situation and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell...

Via ESPN, The Athletic...

“The NFL had to suspend somebody for that last night since that wasn’t a football act,” Burfict told The Athletic. “My suspension was a football act. I was hitting somebody. I wasn’t taking a helmet off and swinging it at somebody.” Burfict told the site he was watching the game with his daughters, ages 4 and 2, and turned the game off after the fight.

“I don’t want them to see that,” Burfict said. “Because that’s not what I do. That’s not part of football. I hit people on the field during the game. And they say that’s dirty, yeah, whatever. I get hit, too, during the games, so don’t complain. It’s football, bro.”
Burfict goes on to blast the NFL and Roger Goodell for giving him such a long suspension for a “football play”.

“It was bullshite,” Burfict said of the discipline for his hit on Doyle. “I was making a football play. I could see if it was a fine or something, but not a suspension, let alone for the whole season. It kind of seems like there was a target on my head. I mean, there has always been a target on my head.

“I met Roger Goodell in New York and he was a total bitch” Burfict said. “He was a bitch. He didn’t let anybody speak, he rushed us in and out of the meeting. The meeting was bull shite He already had the suspension in his hand.”

Burfict is one of the dirtiest players in football. His story of him turning off the game in front of his daughters after the fight is hilarious and tone-deaf.

I really don't give a frick about the woes of Vontaze Burfict but he's right about Goodell. The way the commissioner hid under his desk following the Rams-saints game last year was in keeping with his character.

Sounds like a “bitch” took control and wouldn’t let you talk. Stop complaining about being a bitch, bitch.
