This quote in the SI article (https://www.si.com/nfl/2019/09/16/antonio-brown-new-england-patriots-lawsuits-accusations-sexual-midconduct-assault) perfectly describes Antonio Brown: 

 

Says James W. Smith III, Tedeschi’s attorney: “You’ll start to see a pattern where Antonio lures people in initially, and at first he appears to be very gregarious and appreciative of whatever service he’s seeking, and then at some point when the bill is due he creates division or confrontation in an effort to avoid having to meet his financial obligation. . . . It’s an unfortunate pattern of entitlement and narcissism.”

Crazy article!

Redskins, Cowboys, Bengals?  Those seem like the teams who have historically taken a chance on players with off the field issues.  I guess you can add the Browns to that list with Dorsey there. 

I don't see any prop bets other than if he will play in 2019 or 2020.

Thanks. 

I think this is spot on take for how the team saw it. Side note, this is a great example too of keeping it to football. Others I'm sure will try to take it off football and put it on you as some sort of "gotcha" that YOU were wrong. Ignore those. So much better to keep it on football.

I think you hit the big thing I've been saying that feels like it's not getting enough attention. It's one thing to bring in a guy with a troubled past. But when he does something on YOUR watch, that's different. That's what this felt like here with Brown texting the woman who accused him. 

 

This gives the Patriots way too much credit. It's different in that fewer people will let you get away with acting the ostrich. That's all.

From Wikipedia...

Following a Super Bowl XXXIV party in Atlanta on January 31, 2000, a fight broke out between Lewis and his companions and another group of people, resulting in the stabbing deaths of Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar. Lewis and two companions, Reginald Oakley and Joseph Sweeting, were questioned by Atlanta police, and 11 days later the three men were indicted on murder and aggravated assault charges. The fight occurred about 200 yards (180 m) from the Cobalt Lounge at 265 East Paces Ferry Road in the Buckhead Village neighborhood about two miles north of downtown Atlanta where Lewis had been celebrating.[116][117] The white suit Lewis was wearing the night of the killings has never been found. Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard alleged the blood-stained suit was dumped in a garbage bin outside a fast food restaurant.[118] A knife found at the scene did not have any fingerprints or DNA. Lewis subsequently testified that Oakley and Sweeting had bought knives earlier in Super Bowl week from a Sports Authority where Lewis had been signing autographs.[117][119] Baker's blood was found inside of Lewis's limousine.[120]

Two weeks into the trial Lewis's attorneys, Don Samuel and Ed Garland, negotiated a plea agreement with the District Attorney where the murder charges against Lewis were dismissed in exchange for his testimony against Oakley and Sweeting,[121] and his guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of obstruction of justice.[15] Lewis admitted he gave a misleading statement to police on the morning after the killings (initially telling them that he was not at the scene).[122] Superior Court Judge Alice D. Bonner sentenced Lewis to 12 months' probation. One year in prison is the maximum sentence for a first-time offender,[123] and the immediate probation was the judge's decision. He was also fined $250,000 by the NFL, which was believed to be the highest fine levied against an NFL player for an infraction not involving substance abuse.[124] Under the terms of the sentence, Lewis could not use drugs or alcohol during the duration of the probation.

Oakley and Sweeting were acquitted of the charges in June 2000.[125][126] No other suspects have ever been arrested for the incident.

The following year, Lewis was named Super Bowl XXXV MVP. However, the signature phrase "I'm going to Disney World!" was given instead to quarterback Trent Dilfer.[2]

Throughout the course of this adventure, much has been said about morality, ethics, judgement, etc. of a football player and an organization.

Ray Lewis, Ben Roethlisburger, Clinton Portis, Jim Irsay, Adrian Peterson, Tyreek Hill and Kareem Hunt say hello.

Pot, meet kettle.

-a) old news

-b) Wikipedia? That's funny. You know I could go to that page right now and edit it to say Ray Lewis turned into a dragon and flew away, right?

-c) he didn't kill anyone... IIRC it was more a case of aiding and abetting (crime yes, but not murder)

-d) you are free to believe whatever you want

-e) apologies to all for participating in this hijacking

I just saw pics of AB flying into Miami on a private jet. I wonder if he's personally paying for this, or somebody else is? Considering he possibly is never playing in the NFL again, it doesn't seem like to a good idea to drop 10's of thousands on private jet travel...

Yeah, it's over from his perspective until he realizes he needs the money.  From an NFL perspective his career may very well be over.  Brown may wake up one day and realize how stupid he is.  But as of today he isn't there yet.

I like go back and read long threads like this. There seems to be a cut-off between 2010-2014 nevertheless I wanted to see at what point did be get to this point. In 2012 Brown signed a new contract, in 2014 he started tweeting and held out of camp demanding a new contract. He agrees to show for the season then gets an extension on his contract. Somewhere between 2014-2015 the Brown we know today emerged as he showed up to camp in a Phantom Rolls Royce. I was curious as to how we got to this point and it’s actually sad to be honest especially considering he came from humble beginnings.

He wasn’t a high pick so he had to prove himself. He wasn’t respected by the NFL community until around 2013-2014. Before then they only praise his work ethics and determination to be the best. He was drafted in 2010 he was picked like somewhere around the 190th pick or something like that. He wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Everyone thought he was too small and would probably make the team through special teams. Hell, I’m sure he wasn’t drafted by many people in (Dynasty) 2010, I picked him up off the waiver wire that year because he looked quicker than everyone else on the field and thought maybe one day he’ll get his chance.

After Antonio Brown’s latest Twitter tirade this morning, one NFL source texted: “Kraft never writing that check, no matter what the ruling is now.”

Call me a bad guy, but I am enjoying every single second of the fallout. I am not happy any of this happened from the onset as some women may have suffered at his hands.

However, his actions of leaving the Raiders, playing a coaches call, his actions now that he was released after threatening text messages? I am happy watching Brown get exactly what he deserves for how he has acted in his entirety over the years.

On the other hand, I shed no tears for the Patriots. They knew what they were doing and getting and they looked the other way and still are suffering at his hands. 

Its as if they are about to suffer for all their years of taking problem children. They got arrogant and its coming to a head for them.

Raiders knew too, and Steelers knew the last year what a headache he'd become too

They knew the risk, they took it .... and washed their hands cleaned when they could. 

ABrown ... tossed away what, 100 Million over the next 3-4 years? I wonder how his 401K looks after the baby mama's get their cuts?

Sure. If there's one thing that comes to mind when discussing AB it's his decision making ability.

Went from hall of famer to cautionary tale about as fast as possible.  I'm not sure you could fall from a cliff that fast. 

Based on the information we have, it seems likely that he will be in financial trouble in a few years.

It will make for an interesting season. It sounds like he will not go down without a fight and will pursue all options to get his $40 million in guaranteed money from the Raiders and the Patriots.

I imagine no owner will want to risk being called out like this by a player. Even Jerr-uh likes to be falsely worshiped by his current and former employees (to be fair though he’s also been one of the more generous owners contractually).
