During a heated debate with his Fox Sports talk show co-host Shannon Sharpe on Wednesday, Skip Bayless defended his inflammatory tweet against Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin for a third consecutive day.
After missing Tuesday’s episode of their chat program “Undefeated,” former NFL player and NFL Hall of Famer Sharpe returned on Wednesday. His absence came after his co-host, Skip Bayless, received widespread backlash for tweeting that the NFL should have stopped the Bills’ game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday after Hamlin fell on the field. Hamlin took a blow to the chest and fell into cardiac arrest.
In the aftermath of Monday’s event, Bayless wrote, “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.”
Later, Bayless tweeted that the uproar over his initial post was based on a misreading of his meaning. The Wednesday episode of “Undisputed” was marked by an instant conflict between the show’s hosts. During his introductory speech, Sharpe claimed, “I’ve never seen anybody have to be revived and fight for their life on the field.” “Skip tweeted something, and although I disagreed with the tweet, and hopefully Skip would take it down. But I wanted…”
Bayless immediately interrupted, saying “I’m not going to take it down, because I stand by what I tweeted.” After that, Sharpe decided to stop talking. With obvious frustration directed at Bayless, he continued, “I cannot even get through a monologue without you interrupting me.”

Bayless stated he didn’t think Sharpe would answer his tweet live on television, and Sharpe sought to redirect the subject back to Hamlin. The heated exchange lasted for almost a minute. After Bayless’ contentious post on Monday, he later clarified that it was all in good fun.
The well-being of that young guy is paramount. What I meant to say in my last tweet is this. I apologize if my tweet was misinterpreted, but he needs to focus on his health. At the start of Tuesday’s “Undisputed,” Bayless did not directly address the tweet, but he did seem shaken up by it.

“I apologize for what for what we’re going to set out to do here today, if it offends anyone because we’re going to try to do the show pretty much as usual we do the show,” he said. “I’ll admit up front that I’m still shook up what happened last night to Damar Hamlin. In fact, I’m still wrecked. In fact, I’m not sure I’m capable of doing this show today.”
After coaches from both teams declined to play on Monday, the NFL decided to postpone the game until an “appropriate time” to announce further action.
