Should Vontaze Burfict be banned from football forever?

The Oakland Raiders took a risk bringing in controversial linebacker Vontaze Burfict. Unfortunately, he is up to his old tricks. Burfict was ejected Week 4 after taking a vicious headshot on Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle and was suspended for the remainder of the 2019 season. Many think this should be the last straw for Burfict and he should be kicked out of the league. Others think he should be banned for life for making football plays. What do you think? 🏈

This hit on Colts tight end Jack Doyle is just latest in a long history of headshots involving Vontaze Burfict. He has been suspended for the remainder of the season, but is it time to ban him for life?

#BanBurfict

According to Field Yates, Burfict has been fined over $5 million and been suspended for 22 games in his career. It's obvious he hasn't learned anything about playing safely. He's had way too many chances to correct this behavior. Now, he's just a danger to everyone on the field.

If he's unwilling to learn how to play safely, he should be banned for life.

The reason Burfict is so highly respected among teammates is that he plays hard. Sometimes, he plays a little too hard, but when the person who gets hit says it's not a big deal, he shouldn't be banned for life.

There's no pretty way to say it: football is a violent sport. Hits like this are going to happen, and any player who gives everything he's got shouldn't be punished with a lifetime ban.
