I hate Burfict as much as the next guy, but this is a stretch. With the notable exception of the AB hit, you could make that compilation for any NFL linebacker in any NFL game.

I'm at work, so I can't watch the vid...

Does it include the non-call from yesterday, when he threw a heavy forearm at AB's helmet while another defender was holding him up trying to make the tackle?!

...the fucker did that with obvious malicious intent, too...

...AGAIN! :evil:

I'd call this dude a piece of shit, but that's an insult to pieces of shit everywhere...

Agreed.

Especially on that QB sneak. Maybe they just used a gif from a terrible angle, but Burfict looked like he missed Ben by about 5 feet. And even if he didn't miss, it was a short yardage situation and Ben put his head down and lunged forward...I dunno what other outcome you could expect from that other than a headshot. I don't know how you can look at what happened in that gif and definitely say it was with malicious intent (other than Burfict being involved, of course).

I disagree, Pabst. If you take the plays in full context - from beginning to end (even after the play is over), you will see that Burfict makes premeditated moves to harm, piss off and just plain bully his opponents. I've seen him do it for years, not just against the Steelers - but certainly more often. I try to look at it with an unbiased eye. I've seen him spit on players, stomp on their feet - while he's talking to them and reaching out to shake their hand even, kick them from the ground, etc...

A perfect example is what he does to Conner after he scores a TD on him. If you watch the play in whole, you'll see Burfict be a few feet away from Conner (that's on the ground), quickly glance down at him - then look like he's interacting with someone a few feet away, then start shuffling his feet (awkwardly) forward to move close enough to kick Conner (on the ground) with his shoes/shins moving thru his head. All along he wants players/refs to think its by accident, just part of the game....bullshit. You can see it all, if you're observant enough.

The best way to explain it is this....do you member in old school NFL plays, when a LB tackled a RB and the LB would get himself off the ground by pushing on the RB's face/helmet and try to humiliate him by shoving his face towards the ground when he gets up - all the while NOT trying to disguise it? Burfict tries to accomplish this same thing, but only while trying to APPEAR to not trying to do it on purpose. A little stumble here, an awkward step/lean here...and..."oops, I kicked you in the head multiple times, unbeknownst to me. Sorry, my bad!" It's disguised, so he can fool some folks that will come to his defense. That's the shit that gets me and he's constantly doing it, if you watch close enough. Romanowski is the closet player I can think off, although he was a little more blatant about it, as it was a different time in the NFL.

I still can't believe they made AB leave the field after getting hit in the head but didn't throw a flag. That didn't make sense.

2018 WEEK 6: STEELERS AT BENGALS
Ben Roethlisberger and Steelers teammates paint ugly picture of Vontaze Burfict
38
The Pittsburgh Steelers were able to pull out a remarkable win in Week 6, and the stories told about Vontaze Burfict after the game might be even more remarkable than the win itself.
By Jeff.Hartman@BnGBlitz Oct 15, 2018, 2:15pm EDT

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports
There is no denying the talent Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict possesses. From a strictly performance standpoint, Burfict is one of the most talented linebackers in the game. But there is something which separates him from the rest of the talent at the position across the NFL.

The cheap shots.

The suspensions.

The trash talk.

The malicious activity after the whistle.

For all the adjectives to describe Burfict as a quality player on the field, there are just as many to describe him as being a complete mess between the whistle.

After the Steelers’ 28-21 victory over Cincinnati on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium, Ben Roethlisberger, and teammates, told some very telling, yet not surprising, stories about Burfict and his actions on the field.

“He hits A.B., then, literally, as I am under center for the next play, he points at JuJu and says, ‘You’re next,’ ” Roethlisberger told Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “How do you allow that stuff?”

Roethlisberger would go on and talk about what happened between the two after Roethlisberger’s would-be touchdown scoring quarterback sneak resulted in a nullified play, due to a timeout, but the two had a lengthy chat after the play.

“After I did the quarterback sneak that they called back, he got in my face. I said, ‘Hey, listen, it’s good to have you back out here [after Burfict’s four-game suspension to start the season].’ He got all feisty and wanted to fight.”

In the playoffs in 2016, Roethlisberger did something similar by telling Burfict his wife was praying for him.

“I told him that my wife was praying for him,” Roethlisberger said. “He didn’t like that, either. He doesn’t like anything.”

Roethlisberger wasn’t alone with the tales from Sunday’s game. Others chimed in as well.

“Burfict is a really good football player and I think everybody in this locker room has respect for what he can do on the field,” Alejandro Villanueva said. “That hit on A.B, it’s unnecessary. It’s bad for the game. It’s hurting the National Football League. It’s hurting fans that are deciding if they want to let their kids play football. It’s injuring players in the NFL that are going to have consequences after football. I think there’s no place for that behavior. For him to come out and continue to talk and continue to make this game something more than a football game, it’s very unfortunate.”

“They were all making threats on me,” JuJu Smith-Schuster said. “Burfict was out there lying, saying I spit on him, which I didn’t …

“This was the most physical game I’ve been in. Their defense was coming after all of us. You could just see it with the talking, the pushing and shoving, the tackling, the extra stuff.”

Ultimately, the Steelers got the last laugh by getting the ball back with just over a minute left in the game, driving down the field and punching the football in to win.

It was the ultimate payback for all of Burfict’s antics throughout the game.

“It was one of those things on the sideline before I went out, I told the guys, ‘This is what legacies are made of for all of us. Let’s take care of business.’

“That’s what makes it fun.” Roethlisberger said.

It will be interesting to see if the league office has anything to say about Burfict’s play, and whether he may face disciplinary actions as a repeat offender of the rules. However, the Steelers now have bigger fish to fry. After the bye week the team finishes up their division play with games against the Cleveland Browns at Heinz Field, and a trip to M&T Bank Stadium to play the Baltimore Ravens.

The next time the Steelers and Bengals will lock horns will be in Week 17 to cap off the regular season. A lot can change between now and then, for both teams as well as Mr. Burfict.

Not to mention on the very next play he pointed at JuJu and said, "you're next!"


Fuck this guy. I was hoping he'd tear and ACL and disappear forever.

If they're gonna suspend Burfict for his extracurricular activities the NFL needs to identify every cheat piece of shit fan in the stands that threw beer while putting up their middle fingers in the facemask of Hill after the Chiefs last score. If this is where this game has come to there really isn't anything left worthy of watching. Disrespectful cowardice fans and cheap shot players is all bad for the league. JMO

A friend showed me an old NFL games video of the Steelers in the 70s doing that but it was a different era. There is a clip though where they took Prestone Pederson and tried to dump him on his head. I liked the intimidation with that defense....kind of like the offense of today punishing guys like James and Rosie and the TEs and JuJu.

More than an NFL problem. Last year in the playoffs when the Pens eliminated the Flyers in Philly the fans rained beer cans down on the Pens bench. There were some tough calls in the game that went against the Flyers but it was embarrassing and scary seeing cans being thrown at the players.
Speaking of the Flyers, anyone have an idea where Beth has gone?

From the linked article "If the latest dirty move simply results in another middling fine, it's unlikely Burfict will change his playing style."

Jeremy Fowler gets it but the league doesn't (or doesn't care)

Vontaze Burfict was fined $112,000 by the NFL for multiple violations in Steelers game, including the forearm to the head of Antonio Brown. Obviously, no suspension. What a league.

It's good that the league at least admits that it was wrong, but $112k isn't sending a strong enough message for a habitual repeat offender.

When players like VB don't get strong punishment for their indiscretions, it opens the door for players to take matters into their own hands and dole out retribution on the field. Vigilante justice is as bad for the game as VB's initial actions.

When JuJu got suspended for laying out VB and standing over him, I was good with it because it would lessen the need for other LB's or VB himself to punish the dear JJSS.

If VB takes a cheap shot week 17, watch for swift and severe retaliation. Maybe it will be in the form of a direct action, or maybe a benches clearing bru-ha-ha.

Either way, a suspension would have lessened the need for retribution
