Curious to see how many teams are desperate to have a diva WR that we haven't seen since the likes of Terrell Owens.

^The cynical side of me almost thinks that was kinda his game plan. Play for a overrated coach with an overrated QB, or play for one of the best coaches, in division that gives you 2 opportunities to go against old team that I don’t think he particularly likes, and with a goat qb

Look, I hate the Patriots, but you can't call Belichick "one of the best coaches". He is the best. Ever. And it's really not close.

I don’t disagree. Thought proclaiming both as goat would be more divisive than just picking one and saying the other is one of the best.

Bummer AB can’t play week 1. Not that he probably would have anyways.

I hope he sues the Raiders and gets awarded the $29 million in guaranteed money they withheld. He could make the case that the organization has been a circus for years and that his antics were all part of the show for them.

I hope the Patriots get exposed for blatant tampering. But like every other crime they've committed, it'll all fade away as they win another super bowl

They started the preseason with an injured Edelman and rookies as their receivers and now have Edelman, Brown and Gordon. Fuck them man

I don't see how you would prove tampering. Every halfway decent GM should have already decided days ago what they were willing to offer AB and put in a call to his agent as soon as he was released.

Ejaculating on her back without consent seems pretty minor. Compared to the non consensual rape part.

No way he plays this season now.

Either Pats will release him or he will be put on Commissioners exempt list until this has played out.

A couple of things though don't add up. How did she allow this to happen on 3 separate occasions? Why didn't you file criminal charges after the 2018 incident? Not saying none of this happened but it seems like this is cash grab and to ruin a scorned lover's life especially with the timing of this coming out, reading complaint it was only filed yesterday.

To answer one of your questions.
Quote :
"In her lawsuit, Taylor claims she ended her professional relationship with Brown following those incidents. Brown reached out to her "several months later" apparently "expressing contrition, begging forgiveness and pleading with her to train him again." She agreed and alleges he "forcibly" raped her in May of 2018."

Who knows what is or isn’t true. But calling something like this a “cash grab” seems absurd to me. We all know there are just thousands and thousands of women getting rich off false accusations.

^^yes, when it's supposedly happened multiple times over the course of a year, and the last time after you supposedly invited yourself to go to the strip club with the guy and then went back to his place.

Sorry that some of you don't think women falsely accuse men of rape. It does happen.

The timing seems suspect. The lack so far of a criminal complaint for the forcible rape accusation, the lack of an amount for monetary damages in the civil suit, and the fact that the public perception based on his antics in relation to his career in the NFL seem well timed. I am not saying what was alleged did not happen.

I have no doubt that he will be placed on Commissioner's exempt list until this is resolved. If he loses this civil case he probably should never be allowed to play in NFL again.

Have false accusations of sexual assault ever been made? Of course.

They also make up a tiny percentage of all accusations, which doesn’t even take into account the assaults that go unreported. Let’s quit acting like it’s some epidemic.

The problem is the mere accusation whether true or not is enough to ruin the accused's life regardless of guilt or innocence.

The legal process should be allowed to play out.

Rightly or Wrongly the NFL has appointed Roger Goodell as the Judge, Jury and Executioner and he can put players on the Exempt list. Now if the Patriots want to be rid of the headache they can just release him, of course he will still get his guaranteed money. I just know regardless of his ability to play football I wouldn't want him on the Panthers.

And being sexually assaulted ruins the victim’s life. Having her name dragged through the mud and being called a liar and calling this a money grab is surely enough to potentially ruin her life as well. Expressing more sympathy for the accused rather than accuser is an odd stance to take.

Quote :
"The legal process should be allowed to play out. "


Sure, nobody’s saying we shouldn’t allow that to happen. It’s just wild how many people rush to either blame the victim (“why did she allow this happen!?”) or cry “false accusations!” Yes, Antonio Brown is innocent until proven guilty. But that doesn’t mean we have to jump to the conclusion that the accuser is a liar. These situations can be handled with nuance.

From what we know so far, it does appear likely to me that they were in some sort of relationship. If that's the case, why haven't associates close to AB come out publicly to claim that they were somehow involved? If he was bangin his trainer on the side, then surely some of his buddies would have know about that.

Another big question that I have with the AB summer fiasco is that Ab calls his GM a kracker, and nobody even pauses to discuss it.

However, if the GM had called him the Nword, the entire NFL would prolly shut down until the proper people involved were appropriately punished.

Could somebody explain this to me?

the "cracker" thing was definitely part of the 24 hour news cycle. it was also disputed...so it may not have even happened.

and 2) don't fucking compare "cracker" to the word you can't even spell out.

So then it's ok for a racial minority to use a racial slur against a white person, but it's not ok for a white person to use a racial slur against racial minorities.

Shouldn't they both be inexcusable?
