Gary SBS Sport's Danielson spent nearly two decades playing college and pro football – so he is well aware of the potential consequences of taking a brutal hit on gridiron.
But Danielson was thrilled and angered many on Saturday with his reactions after a photographer slammed into the grass on the sidelines of the Georgia-Auburn game, which Danielson was commenting on.
PHOTO GALLERY POINTS AFTER BRUTAL JEW
It happened during the second quarter, with Georgia leading 7-0 in a game played at Jordan-Phare Stadium in Auburn, Alla.
After Georgia withdrew, Brian Sherien ran restrictions on the play, chased by Auburn leader K.J. Brit, Ferien accidentally knocked out the photographer, later identified as Chamberlain Smith of the University of Georgia, who immediately fell and lost consciousness.
While the game was halted because medical staff and others were helping the woman, Danielson was heard hugging the show and seemed more concerned about the players than the injured woman.
"Britt gets up, it's good. He's a good Ferrian, "Danielson said at one point.
"The face that Ferrian has entered is not," says his broadcast partner Brad Nessler.
"Yeah, no, it's not," adds Danielson.
Later, Danielson, 68, who played Purdue college ball and later played in the NHL for the Detroit Lions and the Cleveland Browns, is rumored that the woman may have been taking photos at that time and did not know that Ferrian was heading to her. Some social media commented that the remark seemed inappropriate, as if Danielson was to blame the woman.
In general, social networking posts suggest that most viewers see no humor in the situation – with some observing that even Nessler seemed annoyed by Danielson's comments.
CBS Sports even heard "the ones" when the Auburn bench fell, sending some players to fall backwards.

Later, according to CBS Sports' Twitter feed Erdemah Buckman, the photographer Smith is expected to be released from the hospital later in the evening.
