sport news Fans blast Skip Bayless after he questioned if NFL should postpone game after ... trends now

FOX Sports pundit Skip Bayless sparked fury after he appeared to question if NFL should postpone Buffalo Bills' pivotal Monday night match against the Cincinnati Bengals after Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch.

Hamlin, 24, remains in a critical condition today after he tackled rival Bengals receiver Tee Higgens and collapsed before being rushed to hospital.

The match was suspended by NFL after Hamlin was taken off the pitch in an ambulance - but Bayless questioned how they could stop play during the final week of the regular season.

'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,' tweeted Baylees, who joined Fox Sports in 2016 after being an ESPN pundit for 12 years.

NBA star Isaiah Thomas tweeted: 'I hope they fire you bro!!! For you to even THINK of the game is very sad.' 

One fan tweeted: 'A platform as big as yours and you choose to concern yourself with a game over someone's life? You are one of the worst out here. Shame on you.'

The backlash forced Bayless to apologize for questioning whether the match should be postponed. 

Bayless tweeted on Tuesday: '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 and will continue to.'
