Athletes have called for Skip Bayless to be fired after his ‘sick’ Damar Hamlin tweet.
Bills’ Hamlin had to be given CPR after collapsing on the pitch and suffering a suspected cardiac arrest.
Medics rushed on to the field in Cincinnati on Monday after the young footballer collapsed in the middle of a game.
The Buffalo Bills explained the star was hit in the chest with a tackle, but appeared to get back to his feet and adjust his helmet.
He then tragically began to stumble backwards and collapsed to the ground.
CPR was carried out on the footballer for almost 10 minutes before he was transported to hospital.
The network cut to commercial break multiple times as Joe Buck and Troy Aikman spoke seriously about the horrific scenes that were taking place on the field.
Shannon Sharpe missed an episode of Fox Sports show ‘Undisputed’ in an apparent response to Bayless’ controversial comments about the horrific incident involving Damar Hamlin in Monday evening.
Now, fans believe that Sharpe was absent from the morning sports show due to comments made by co-star, Skip Bayless.
The sports columnist tweeted:
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 seems so irrelevant.
