    He is a dangerous man and shouldn't be allowed back on the field

    Besides being dangerous, he's also a moron. He should be banned for life.

    Raiders' Vontaze Burfict suspended for rest of season

    The suspension is Burfict's fourth during his NFL career, and the third time he's been hit with a ban for on-field incidents. In 2016, Burfict was suspended three games for multiple violations of player safety rules. In 2017, the linebacker was suspended five games for a hit to a defenseless player, which was reduced to three games upon appeal. In 2018, Burfict missed four games for a violation of the NFL's PED policy. The linebacker has also been hit with recurring fines for illegal hits throughout his career.

    Long viewed as one of the dirtiest players in the NFL during his seven seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, Burfict often toed the line between tough and out-of-line. The Raiders signed the 29-year-old this offseason to add toughness to Paul Guenther's defense -- Burfict played under the DC for several years in Cincy. Burfict received rave reviews from the coaching staff and was eventually made a team captain.

    Less than a month into the season, Burfict's play once again crossed the line and earned him a lengthy ban this time around.

    When I saw that he was suspended for the season, I was expecting worse. I feel like I see these hits every game. I do cringe when I see them, and I hope this is a move in the right direction
