Antonio Brown - Out of his Head - Out of the League

@AdamSchefter

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.”

Sounds like AB rubbed Kraft the wrong way.

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?

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...

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).

Josie’s Anderson on Twitter: 

pparently someone legit needs to get to Antonio Brown, not AB the persona, Antonio Brown. "He's out of control & not listening," I'm told. Periodic twitter tirades, not entertaining, may be alarms. Intercession mentioned as an idea.

Kraft got caught in the parlor AB speculations fired different strokes different folks clearly

SHOTS HAVE BEEN FIRED!!!!!!!!!!

Career is 110% officially over. Drop him now, kids. It's done.

Some owner probably signs him just cause they hate the patriots and that’s pretty funny.

If he has any "real circle friends", not those that are a bad influence, they should try and get through to him.  He's in a very bad state of mind right now and needs help.  The problem is, he will fight off help tooth and nail probably.  After signing with NE I thought it was a genius move in how he and his agent orchestrated it, but now I realized my first thoughts on him were correct, he's just an idiot that has serious mental issues.  Yes, he can have both and can be mutually exclusive.

When he signed in NE, I stated (in this thread I think) that I doubt it would work out. Not because of these additional issues but because the first time he had a game or games with very few targets and/or catches he would go off the rails

AB had applauded NE fans who sent threats to the SI reporter that broke the 2nd accuser's story on Twitter today, citing "the system is working effectively"

After hearing more from a lot of people that cover the team, the NE coaches still were in favor of keeping AB on the team. Most of them raved at how hard he worked, how quickly he was grasping the playbook, and the opportunities they could scheme up offensively. Reporters asked/texted players  in confidence about AB being let go and the answers ranged from "Good," to "No one is shedding a tear for AB" to "Didn't want him in the first place" to "Didn't need him to begin with." Not a lot of support in the locker room on the player's side. Kraft and the players were not impressed. Coaches and QB's still wanted to try to make things work. But it was Kraft that led the charge on this one, no question.

Some claim that Brown's behavior is evidence of CTE.  Soon, some of the brain pathology of CTE might be detected during life with a PET scan that measues a protein known as tau. But it's early in the research and studies with larger cohorts followed for longer periods need to be done. 

 

 

Probably shouldn't have been playing with a 10 year old helmet after all I guess.

According to one of the MDs who created the NFLs concussion protocol, No helmet can prevent or decrease the risk of concussions

He says he won't play in the NFL anymore.  Lol.  I don't think you have that option anymore. The XFL doesn't even want you. 

What a monumental fall from grace.  

Everyone is in tears watching this as well because he's been such a nice guy about it....

How long before dynasty players start dropping him?  I know, too early, but someone will get frustrated and do it.

guys were holding Dez Bryant all last year in some of my leagues so I'd say not for a long time.

It's really not a bad idea for Trump. AB is one of the few human beings on the planet who can actually make anything Trump says sound reasonable, and as little accountability as AB takes for his own screw-ups, he still can probably teach Trump a few things about taking responsibility and admitting mistakes. Besides, him being a criminal and being an utter dumb ### on Twitter would fit in very well in the White House these days. Someone should start a petition to hire AB as his new Chief of Staff...

See ya.

 

Legal fees subtracting from the savings.

20mil yacht with no honeys on board? Repair, insurance, gas, driver, docking.

6mil house isn't self cleaning and repairing. Insurance, water bill, electric bill, A/C. Pool water in Miami evaporates, refill, chemicals. Has a synagogue to upkeep? 

Personal jet costs 2mil every year in maintenance, gas, piloting, insurance, and storage.

Probably has multiple 6 figure cars.

 

Say goodbye to 6 figure jewelry, 5 figure coats, and 4 figure shoes.

5 figure alcohol. Current companionship is probably high maintenance. An entourage/security isn't free.

 

Hope he invested well. Social Media income dwindles with the stardom. FF players are clicking and giving him coin.

Kiss most of it goodbye over the next 5 or so years. 

 

But man... what a ride it was! Living the dream.

First I thought he was crazy.

Then I thought he was pulling a Hamlet-esque playing crazy to hide his true intentions.

But no. He's just nuts.

You do that, their the dumb dumbs that signed the pyshco for 15 mil.

And yes, so far he hasn't been CHARGED... He's in a civil suit.  

Good on them for doing the right thing and cutting him but they need too still pay the price, 9 million.

They have paid him like $158K and are not paying him anything else. They will make AB fight for anything else and NE feels confident they won’t have to pay him anything else.

Why do some think he's going to see any more the 2 games check plus the 1 mil?  Highly doubtful he will see the 9 mil unless you know something more.

Plus NE can spread that  1 mil and 2 paychecks out over 2 years I heard.
