FOX Sports: Many fans wants Skip Bayless fired after his remarks regarding Damar Hamlin

On Monday night, the sports world came to a stop when Damar Hamlin of the Buffalo Bills collapsed following a collision with Tee Higgins of the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football. After receiving CPR on the field for almost 10 minutes, he was transported to a medical facility where he remains in critical condition. The game has been postponed until a later date.

Sports commentator Skip Bayless had these words…

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.

Nothing is more important than that young man’s health. That was the point of my last tweet. I’m sorry if that was misunderstood but his health is all that matters. Again, everything else is irrelevant. I prayed for him & will continue to.
