Steelers safety Mike Mitchell has had enough of fines and suspensions for dirty hits. He went on a rant about it during Pittsburgh's media availability Wednesday.

"This is foot...ball, if you want to see flag football then let's take our pads off, that'll make it easier for me cause then I don't have to wear heavy s—," he said. "But then give me flags for us to pull off because then I know what we're playing."

Mitchell has been fined several times for hits in his career, but the source of his anger stems from the fines and suspensions from Monday night's matchup with the Bengals. Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster was suspended for his hit on Vontaze Burfict, and Bengals safety George Iloka was fined for his hit on Antonio Brown.

Jerry Jones done with NFL lawsuit idea over Roger Goodell's contract

  Jerry Jones done with NFL lawsuit idea over Roger Goodell's contract Jerry Jones has been disappointed with Roger Goodell's handling of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.After months and months of sluggish legal drama, Elliott was handed his six-game suspension two weeks ago. Jones subsequently threatened to sue the NFL over Goodell's contract, but has now backed away from that stance.

This inconsistency from the league office is nothing new, and Steelers Safety Mike MItchell went on a very entertaining and honest rant about this issue with player discipline. He criticized commissioner Roger Goodell , ironically

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Mike Mitchell might have just put his name into consideration to be the next president of the NFL Players Association. Commissioner Roger Goodell was given a contract extension by the owners Wednesday afternoon.

But the suspension for Smith-Schuster's play has been widely criticized. Ben Roethlisberger said Wednesday the suspension was not fair because it equated what the rookie receiver did to what Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski did Sunday. Both are suspended for this week's games, but Gronkowski's hit came after the whistle while Smith-Schuster's was on a football play.

"We've got to do better as players when we sign the next CBA, we've got to get better leadership as who's running the league because obviously everybody from fans, owners, players are all disappointed in Roger Goodell," Mitchell said. "We've just got to do better, we can't have a guy where you just hand out discipline on how you see fit, there needs to be a set guideline of how we do what we do."

Mitchell has had enough, and beyond this, he has heard enough.

"At first you're taking our money, but now I've got a— like Matt Hasselbeck calling me a dirty player and trying my character and we've never met before," Mitchell said. "I donate more money to Cincinnati underprivileged kids than probably people on the Bengals, so don't give me that name."
