Okay okay you want to talk about being a broken record, looks like we are going to talk about Antonio Brown yet again. It is sad we have cover this jerk again because I’ll be honest when the Steelers traded Brown away I thought that would help everyone and we could all move on but moving on is just too hard for some people and Brown happens to be one of them. Usually when people get traded, they realize it would be a fresh start and will correct the past by doing right, something they couldn’t do with their previous team but once again we are talking about Brown here who is now the biggest Diva in all of football.
Let’s start when him showing up to camp in a hot air balloon, which was pretty cool I have to give him that, it was different. Here in Pittsburgh it is a tradition to arrive in training camp in besides something like a boring car, so this was alright in my eyes, but the next few things is just a total joke to me. Let’s start with the first thing and that was Brown sitting out of camp with a foot injury. Now a football player’s feet are no doubt important but then we learn he gotten a bad frost bite because of how stupid he is and yes it was his own mistake. Don’t get me wrong when he posted pictures, I have to admit it was pretty nasty. Okay moving on to the season right? No Brown can’t fade from the drama just yet. The NFL gotten new helmets for their players and Brown doesn’t like his and felt that he can’t play football in the new helmets.
So in Brown fashion he has to boo woo and make a scene regarding the situation. He went as far as saying he won’t play another game in the NFL and will retire from football. Mind You the Oakland Raiders just spent a lot of money on him to play for them. For a moment the NFL stood up to Brown and said he has to wear the helmet but then that quickly changed and said he could wear an old helmet but it has to be made after 2010. Once again I lost respect for the NFL for catering to Brown but then Jon Gruden had to speak up and lie about how the team is supporting Brown and making up some crap on how Brown is passionate about this. Now I get it Jon is just a puppet but he truly looks like a big baby with supporting Brown. In the end I believe we will have more blogs on Brown, the Raiders aren’t a good team and Brown only wants his stats to look good so this will be fun to see, well it will also being annoying though because sooner or later he needs to be stopped but I fear it won’t stop until this guy retires oh the joy!

Have you been following the NFL playoffs so far? I have to be honest i have not been. See for me I am a die-hard Pittsburgh fan, so My focus is now on the Pittsburgh Penguins but even so all I am hearing about is Antonio Brown and even for a Pittsburgher I am sick of hearing about it. These playoffs should be about the teams and player who are in the playoffs because it is pretty interesting. In the AFC championship you have Tom Brady and the Patriots vs the Kansas City Chiefs and their young star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, in what could be a passing of the torch game. Then in the NFC Game you have the Staints vs The L.A. Rams which evryone wants that team to do get to the SuperBowl, seems like the talk was people wanted an all L.A. Superbowl well we know that not happeniong this year but yet the main focus is on a guy who isn’t even playing.
Let’s get back to this drama with Brown. It all started with the Staints which the Steelers lost and pretty kicked the Steelers out of the playoffs. However Brown during that game seemed to be unstoppable which is nothing new. Then Tuesday came around and the team held a meeting to vote on the Team M.V.P and Brown didn’t win. The next day Brown leaves practice after a dispute with Big Ben, However Tomlin lied to the media and said Brown hurt his Knee but we later found out the reason why he didn’t play was because basically he was big baby who decided to mispractice and show up to the game and coach said you’re not playing and once again he walked away from the team. He started using Social Media mocking Tomlin and leaving the coach no choice but to come clean about Brown.
We now know Brown feels like the team doesn’t appreciate his talents, so this could comeback to the team M.V.P award. One thing Brown is about is his stats, he doesn’t care about winning or losing just money and stats and that my friend doesn’t make you an M.VP. Steelers team owner and president Art Roony II did a sit down interview and basically said He doesn’t see Brown returning to the team. Which means they are looking to trade him.
I once said the Steelers wouldn’t win much with Brown and sure enough that became true. The team can be better off without because the team is full of leaders so they are good shape. Yes Brown is the best Wide reciever in the game today but remember there is no I in team. That sounds cheesy but it is very much true.
