Update: Antonio’s Helmetgate

Literally minutes after I publish my first article about the Antonio Brown fiasco….it gets worse, I should’ve seen it coming. The guy has pissed off his new GM after another no show at today’s Raiders practice. I have to give them some credit for being this patient, the guy pisses and moans until he gets his way which is just the wrong way to go about things. I stick to what I said before, he’s a fucking baby man.

Now Brown is technically is in breach of his contract. If he doesn’t play or practice in approved gear he also won’t be getting paid either. So after today’s no show, the Raiders GM at an interview said “You all know that A.B. is not here today. So here’s the bottom line. He’s upset about the helmet issue. We have supported that. We appreciate that,” and he continued with “But at this point, we’ve pretty much exhausted all avenues of relief. So from our perspective, it’s time for him to be all in or all out.”

With the backing of the league on this issue, as long as he’s doing these no shows the Raiders won’t have to worry about paying him. Raiders GM is now giving Brown an ultimatum. And so is the NFL. To either quit his bitching and show up to do what’s he’s being paid to do, or get pushed around the league a bit more maybe even to a shittier team, Tampa Bay Buccs still exist right? Or he can do what he has threatened to do before which is just retire, which I doubt he’ll do right now. Either way I‘m sure this won’t be my last update about this fuckin clown, so I’ll be keeping you all posted.
