I am sorry, I may get crushed for this take, but I was disgusted when Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford made a face and walked away from a female photographer that fell off the stage. If you did not see the video of the young female reporter falling off the stage it was a hard fall. As a matter of fact the female photographer Kelly Smiley suffered a significant injury, she reportedly broke her spine as well as damaged her camera equipment in the fall.

The sad thing is Stafford who is reportedly known as a great human being, made a face like Ouch, and drank a sip of water and walked away. While his wife showed concern immediately and tried to help. As a man I was disappointed, because we are here to help one another. When you see someone getting hurt you shouldn’t be picking or making fun of the situation. You should try to help that person, especially a young female.

Stafford received some criticism from the internet, so he quickly released a statement, and is now going to pay for the young ladies medical expenses and camera equipment.

I am sorry that is not enough, you paying for her medical expenses and her camera does not do enough for me. I would not be okay with that. If that was my daughter or my wife, I would be pissed that you made that gesture. I think it was very ignorant and it showed your true colors. I was hoping you would win being you didn’t when you were in Detroit, but with an attitude like that, I hope you repent.

A GoFundMe was set up for Smiley, and Pat McAffee was the top donor. We at NFL Draft Diamonds are praying for a speedy recovery for Kelly.
