The Bengals player said he has heard officials cursing at Burfict on multiple occasions

I'm guessing it was something like "What is that asshole doing now?"

- $10K fine for hitting a guy in the sack, and I don't mean a QB sack
- $21K fine (same game) for attempted murder on a defenseless WR
- $7875 fine for trying to take Freddie Jackson's helmet home with him, with Fred's head stil in it
- $60K for attempted manslaughter on Stephen Hill
- Had a Groupon and only paid $25K for trying to break the ankles of Cam Newton and Greg Olsen after the whistle
- $70K for two unnecessary roughness calls and trying to take Big Ben's knee out
- 3 game suspension for headhunting on Antonio Brown
- $75K for stomping on Blount
- $12K fine for the double "We're #1!" salute
- Taking out his own RB, fresh off of ACL sugery, by taking out his knees

I don't understand why the officials are constantly persecuting him.

Dirtiest player in the NFL by a country mile. He is exactly the type that should be banned from the game, and yet they still let him play. Make a statement NFL: if you *really* care about player safety, then get rid of shiatbags like Burfict.

Yeah, you'd think someone might be seeing a pattern.

Still, the dangerous thing here is that if the NFL and the referees do nothing, the players will, and when that happens, you'll here the phrase "warrior's code" more than we did during the Dick Incognito kerfuffle.

The union wouldn't have it. They seem to fail to realize they also represent all of the players whose careers Burfict seems intent on ending. I do wonder if Burfict would actually get somewhere in court if banned, which would inevitably follow.

All of that said, he should NOT be in the league. The players know it as do the fans. Lewis should be fired if for nothing more than his enabling of Burfict. And as a Steelers fan that is difficult for me to say because I hope they give Lewis a lifetime contract.

Last month during a league soccer game at work (indoors), we had the most unusual incident.  A player had gotten under the skin of everyone on the turf.  The ref (certified) yelled at him, during with used two curse words.  The player went over to the league organizer and complained.  Organizer kicked the player out of the league.  Player comes to us and ask for the general manager, or he'll call the cops.  General manager had went home for the night, so the player called the cops.  I call my boss, and let him know what is going on as the officer is talking with the player, boss comes in hot.  While listening to the conversation between cop and player, the cop is getting irritated with the player as he explains there was no threat made to the player, and "We do not fill out reports for hurt feelings."  The player kept pushing the cop's buttons to the point, I thought I might see a tasing.  Boss gets there as cop is with the organizer, and talks with the player.  After hearing the player's side, points towards the ice rink and says, "If 2 words is going to get you worked up like this, stay away from there.  Refs, children, and moms use worse language."

I have never been a Burfict apologist, I think his on field behavior is abysmal. Recently though, my future son-in-law has been working security at Paul Brown Stadium, and one of his posts is the parking lot outside the locker room after the games, and he's been sharing storied on the players' behavior off the field, away from the cameras. According to him, Vontaze Burfict is always one off the first to exit the locker room and among the last to leave, talking and taking photos with any any fans who may be around, especially kids. Adam Jones is apparently a mouthy prick who doesn't have time for anyone, and A J Green is very polite, but very shy. And Andy Dalton goes straight to his truck and splits without a word to anyone.

Once the ref swore at him, he should have flopped to the ground holding his knee.

Josh Gordon never hurt anyone and how many seasons did he sit to get treatment?  Burfict should be out of the league until he learns how to play clean.

What is your point?  Is your opinion that there are no assholes, just people with chemical imbalances?  And that therefore we must tolerate their behavior or fix their chemical imbalance?  I'm really not being as snarky as it seems, I think it's an interesting dilemma.  I think we're weird in the way we view this kind of conduct.  The normal slots in our society seem to be:

"Normal" person
Slightly aggressive
Douchebag that deserves social scorn
Asshole that deserves social scorn
Major league asshole that deserves social scorn (Vontaze Burfict, in my opinion)
Menace to society that deserves incarceration
Menace to society that deserves incarceration for life
So insanely aggressive that he needs intensive chemical treatment and it's really not his fault

You seem to be moving the most severe ranking into the middle of the pack.  I'm genuinely not saying it's wrong, I'm just curious as to how you feel about the people then ranked below him.

I'm saying he has some undiagnosed mental issue(s). I am saying that no one around him can "make him" seek some help and all the Bengals are doing is enabling his behavior on the field by continually allowing him to play. I am not talking about putting him in jail. I am talking about not allowing him to play until he seeks some help.

Burfict is just an asshole who can't cope with losing, in a hyperaggressive sport with physical contact and in a role (defense) that always is retreating by nature. Dude needs to find a different career.

Gotcha.  You would think that would be a win-win.  The team would get better performance, and he would get on the field more, not pay so many fines, and better off for his post-football life (presuming this sort of behavior carries over outside the lines)
