SNL Ridicules Media’s Coverage Of Sickening NFL Injuries
Saturday Night Live is never better than when they nail a perfect political impersonation during debate season. But they come damn close with their satirization of American sports culture, and this skit is one of their best yet.

The segment took aim at the media's coverage of NFL injuries, which tend to be brutal in nature, by depicting a scene in which the broadcast continually shows replay of a devastating (and anatomically impossible) injury... again and again and again.
"No one should ever have to witness something that shocking. Let's see it again."
