BT rips NFL for Tua Tagovailoa injury: 'They're all liars and they're all phonies'


Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel assured reporters on Friday that the Dolphins followed all the proper precautions when it came to playing Tua Tagovailoa on Thursday night, but BT isn’t buying any of it.

The only thing he is buying is that the league doesn’t care about the safety of its players, and deserved to be exposed for it in a primetime game.

“They don’t care about the kid,” BT said. “They care about money. They put up this great front, with this concussion protocol.

“I’m actually happy in a twisted way that it was not buried with eight or nine other 1:00 games on a Sunday…not happy for Tua. Praying for the kid. When you see fingers mangled like that, it’s terrifying.”

Tagovailoa was hospitalized but flew back to Miami with the team later that night, and the league and the Dolphins were widely criticized for allowing Tagovailoa to play after a short week, and after he struggled to stay on his feet following a hit in Sunday’s game. BT says the criticism is warranted, and as for the league, it is absolutely deserved.

“I’m happy they got exposed the way they did last night,” BT said. “They’re all liars, and they’re all phonies.”
