Skip Bayless NFL

In the middle of the first quarter of tonight’s NFL game between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals, Bills safety Damar Hamlin was seen tackling Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins on a crossing pattern.

After the play, he stood up for a second, and fell straight to the ground, collapsing on the field.

For about nine minutes, the former Pitt Panther was given AED, CPR and oxygen by medical staff, as they brought out the stretcher and ambulance and transported Hamlin to the nearest hospital in Cincinnati.

Judging by the players’ faces, it appears to be a horrible situation, as several players were shown in tears.

They eventually suspended the game, and both teams were sent to the locker room discussing what the next move should be.

The game has officially been postponed.

Of course, at the time, the majority of people on Twitter are asking for the game to get cancelled or postponed.

However, sports personality Skip Bayless took to Twitter, and shared his thoughts:

And then this ridiculous tweet:

“No doubt the NFL is considering postponing the rest of this game – but how? This late in the season, a game of this magnitude is crucial to the regular-season outcome… which suddenly becomes irrelevant.”

Needless to say, the guy is currently getting torched for his comments on Twitter.

From former players, from current players, celebrities, fans… everybody disgusted by Skip’s ignorant comment:

Skip clarified his statement in a follow up tweet, indicating that his controversial tweet was misunderstood.

Nevertheless, the damage is done…

The NFL has released a statement confirming that Damar Hamlin is in critical condition at a Cincinnati hospital:
