    Antonio Brown threatens NFL with liability if hes injured in a new helmet

    One of the first lessons in law school goes like this: When the facts are on your side, pound on the facts. When the law is on your side, pound on the law. When neither is on your side, pound on the table.

    Antonio Browns legal team is pounding on the table.

    Antonio Brown's 18 bizzare off-the-field headlines since the 2017 season ended

    • Brown took to Instagram to publicly call out his girlfriend and mother of his children for not taking care of her children from a previous relationship.
    • Brown skipped most of OTAs after he saw Roethlisberger wasn't there. Roethlisberger later admitted he had a pre-planned family vacation during the optional practices.
    • Brown slammed the media on the first day of mandatory minicamp, appearing to question why he plays, saying, “Am I playing football to make a lot of money or am I playing football to take care of my family?” Brown continued, saying the media puts pressure on him and that he is unable to go out in public because of it.
    • Brown showed up in a helicopter to training camp.
    • Brown disappeared for a week during training camp. Mike Tomlin claimed that he had been sent to Pittsburgh for medical tests, but Brown was filmed in a pool in Miami.
    • Brown reportedly called Bouchette a “racist” after Bouchette tweeted that Brown was limping at training camp. He then called Bouchette a “clown” on Twitter. Reportedly, Brown apologized to Bouchette.
    • Brown showed up more than four hours late to an event at Children’s Hospital, offering no explanation as to why he was so late.
    • Brown makes a joke in a GQ article about cheating on his girlfriend and mother of children, saying “it’s kind of hard to keep it in my pants.”
    • Brown threatened to assault ESPN’s The Undefeated reporter Jesse Washington, saying “wait to I see you bro we gone see what your jaw like.” Brown then issued a public apology, then went on a strange tirade to media in which he called himself an ”exceptionalism.”
    • Brown was spotted by CBS cameras hugging former Browns offensive coordinator Todd Haley during a game against Cleveland. He then was caught bragging about reaching 10,000 career receiving yards to Haley on team’s Snapchat, minutes after the 21-21 tie.
    • Brown was seen yelling at his offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner and wide receivers coach Darryl Drake on the sideline. He then left the locker room before media could ask him about it vs Chiefs.
    • Brown tweeted "trade me let's find out" when criticized on Twitter by former Steelers public relations staffer Ryan Scarpino.
    • Brown failed to show up for Monday meetings after the Chiefs game. He then told the media he was “pissed off” because “we suck.”
    • Brown was sued for trashing his Florida apartment and then claimed he had $80,000 in cash and a gun stolen from him. He was also sued for tossing furniture from the 14th floor of his apartment building, nearly hitting and, potentially, killing a 22-month-old toddler.
    • Brown was cited for driving in excess of 100 miles per hour on McKnight Road, which was over 55 miles per hour more than the posted speed limit. Brown reportedly told police that he was late for a team meeting.
    • Brown repeatedly posted his personal accolades on social media after Steelers losses, including a crucial 31-28 loss in New Orleans.
    • Brown reportedly got into a disagreement with Roethlisberger in practice, throws a football at him and leaves practice.
    • Brown reportedly skips the team’s walk through the day before Bengals game, shows up before the game, is told he won’t play and leaves at halftime.
    All of these incidents, some major, some minor, have occurred since the last offseason. Brown, who will turn 31 in July, is set to have a base salary of $12,625,000 in 2019. He is signed through the 2021 season.

    The bigger problem is the guy who brought him in. Since being brought back to the Raiders Gruden has lost Mack and Cooper, and brought in Martavis, AB, Burfect (for his leadership no less), and Incognito. I will give him credit for making Hard Knocks must see tv.

    Remember in the MNF in 2017 between the Steelers and the Bengals, Jon Gruden was talking as if Burfict was a legendary linebacker on the field.

    It's not just about the QB that Gruden struggle to judge the talent ...

    I disagree. Mack was NEVER going to play for the Raiders again. They did well with the compensation for him, considering the circumstances. The Raiders would have been no better off for keeping him than they were for dealing him. Cooper...... What good is WR that can't catch the ball.... or won't??? Martavis was a mistake... can't argue that with you. Incognito.... we need nasty and agressive on this team. Burfect... read the previous.

    Having said that, I'm not a fan of either of those guys, but if they can bring W's to my team....... bring it!

    He used to be a likeable human being for many years, or at least he did job of projecting that in public. It's really the last couple of years he's showed his whack side, but yeah he seems to be getting worse and worse and worse

    I will admit I didn't follow it all that close but what was the issue with Mack and Cooper?

    Do you really see leadership skills in Burfect? The guy can't even keep himself under control enough to lead his team to their 1st playoff victory in the Marvin Lewis era, with the Bengals. If that is what you have as a leader of your team your team is in desperate shape.

    Speaking of Lewis how did he fair in bringing in questionable character guys? Bengals fans said same thing you did, but it didn't get them to far. Do you really think Gruden is going to fair any better?

    Mack just did not want to play for the Raiders anymore He would have pulled a Bell on us. Cooper couldn't catch a cold, let alone a football when he was with us. Burfect is a POS. I do not think he's a leader in any sense of the word. I hate that he's on my team. No... I don't think Gruden will fair any better with him. I'm not really a fan of Gruden, either. I hated that Mark brought him back. In fact... I hate that Mark owns my team. I hate everything that has happened to a once proud, historic NFL team.

    I can't be anything other than a Raiders fan.... I have been a fan for almost 52 years. I'm just about ready to wash my hands of the NFL. I'm a 70's football guy. I hate what the NFL has become. I hate the players, the commissioner and the owners.... along with all the over rated players that think they are owed something while making millions of $$$. The NFL is a fiasco.

    was that because the Raiders weren't going to give him the huge contract he wanted or was it something else also?

    That's a good question. I think it was more about the money than anything else.

    Of course I'm tired of losing. It isn't like I've never seen them win or be very good in my 50+ years as a Raiders fan. I'm just disinterested in the way the NFL is these days, even if the Raiders were winning again. The game, the money, the BS rules, the greed, the obvious bias for and against certain teams, etc...............

    Re: Antonio Brown threatens NFL with liability if hes injured in a new helmet

    I think that Brown has some brain damage. As much as a diva as he always was, he was never like this until the last couple of years. He played up his reputation as a diva but you always got the impression that it was all tongue and cheek. He saw how they let Mike Wallace stroll out of town when his demands got ridiculous. There answer was to give the big contract to Brown because he WASN"T disruptive. I think Brown needs some medical help at this point. He's just not right in the head.

    Antonio Brown has a potential helmet loophole

    Posted by Mike Florio on August 12, 2019,

    Raiders receiver Antonio Brown has a potential helmet loophole, if he chooses to try to use it.

    Brown can’t use his preferred helmet — a Schutt AiR Advantage — in 2019, because that specific helmet is more than 10 years old. However, because the NFL has not affirmatively banned from use the Schutt AiR Advantage, Brown apparently could use one that is less than 10 years old, if he can find one.

    Gruden also struggles when it's time to choose a punter...
