Musburger had an interesting take on the violent Monday night game.
Monday Night Football between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals was marred by vicious hits, one that sent Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier to the hospital with a spinal cord injury.
Former ESPN broadcaster Brent Musburger doesn’t seem to mind the violence.
He sent out a tweet late Tuesday night calling out the “snowflakes” who preach about the devastating violence witnessed in Monday night’s game.
Yo,Snowflakes. Quit preaching. The Violent World of Sam Huff sold NFL football to the masses. The Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders gave us a little sex with our violence. Deal with it!

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict and Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier left the game on a stretcher. Football is an inherently dangerous sport, but Monday night’s game between bitter AFC North rivals took on a much different one.
Pittsburgh’s JuJu Smith-Schuster was suspended one game as a result of his hit on Burfict, while Cincinnati’s Georgia Iloka was also suspended one game for his head-to-head hit on Antonio Brown.
Apparently Musburger didn’t mind.
