NFL Fans Want ESPN Analyst Fired Over Damar Hamlin Comments

NFL Fans Want ESPN Analyst Fired Over Damar Hamlin Comments

Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest on Monday night during his team’s match-up against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The game was initially postponed over the incident, before getting canceled altogether.

A number of prominent sports personalities spoke out on the issue – some in classier ways than others. Skip Bayless, in particular, took such a tone-deaf approach that there are now rumors circulating that his co-host Shannon Sharpe may be done with their show together.

That said, Bayless wasn’t alone in angering fans.

On Tuesday, NFL commentator Bart Scott drew the ire of NFL fans around the country with his analysis of the Hamlin situation.

Specifically, some folks really hated the way Scott tried to reference Tee Higgins of the Bengals for his role in Hamlin’s cardiac arrest occurring.

That said, not everyone felt as though Scott had done something wrong. A lot of fans were divided.

The responses to Scott’s video are evidence enough of the polarization as it pertains to his comments:

As noted, some handled this situation better than others.

Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, for example, is receiving universal praise for his classy move after the incident occurred.

Scott is getting the opposite response.

Will either he or ESPN comment on the backlash at some point in the foreseeable future?

An answer should emerge one way or the other in the next few days.
