Skip Bayless is a professional when it comes to offending people, and now the Fox Sports host has managed to insult every kicker in the NFL.

Following a 6-6 tie between the Seattle Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday night, Bayless took to Twitter to profess his disdain for the one of the league’s key positions.

“I despise field-goal kicking. Great athletes fight their guts out for 4 quarters and overtime and 2 nonfootball-player kickers blow it,” Bayless wrote.

“Some day somebody will listen to me. Field goal kicking should be eliminated,” he continued.

His comments did not go down well with Indianapolis Colts punter Pat McAfee, who vehemently defended the position — and dubbed Bayless a “douchebag” in the process.

“All of us pro ball kickers LOVE old men who get on TV & act like douchebags while wearing makeup.. Let’s hug it out,” the six year veteran wrote back.

Bayless’ ex-ESPN colleague Bob Valvano jumped into the conversation by saying that he was glad he didn’t have to work with the former “First Take” anchor anymore.

“I value loyalty, so thank goodness Skip Bayless no longer works for us @espn so I can truthfully say he’s an embarrassment to sports talk,” he tweeted.

Bayless exited ESPN in June for Fox Sports 1, where he was reunited with buddy and former boss Jamie Horowitz. His departure prompted some of his colleagues to reveal how they really felt about the polarizing host.
