Antonio Brown sued - he deserves his own thread

    Keep reaching like that and you will dislocate your shoulder. There is no way Brown has grounds for a lawsuit. It's not on a team to force a player to spend days in a dark room after suffering a concussion. Not everybody who suffers a concussion needs one. There is zero evidence that the Steelers did anything wrong in handling Brown after that concussion. You don't know what was done and what was not done. We do know he was never cleared to return to the field and he did not play in another game that season.

    There have been very real incidents with teams blatantly disregarding the well-being of players with concussions. The Bears nearly got Merril Hoge killed by letting him play with a concussion in 1994. His heart actually did stop in the locker room, but team doctors were able to revive him. There was also the time the Browns let Colt McCoy continue to play against the Steelers in 2011. I remember watching that game live. You could tell from home that he was out of it, yet they left him in. The Dolphins did it with Matt Moore in a playoff game a few years back. Those are just a few times I can think of that a team actually did endanger a player who had a concussion. None of those resulted in lawsuits. It's comical to suggest Brown could sue.

    If he had true friends, one of them would have taken his phone by now.

    He’s a highly intelligent, self-motivated and educated adult. He’s not dumb or stupid. He’s selfish, narcissistic and lacks empathy and sympathy. He seems to be abusive towards women in the same manner Adrian Peterson is abusive towards children, they think they have the right to do what they want. Again, that feeling is because from an early age they have been granted privilege after privilege and have had little negative consequences for their actions because of their ability to entertain on Friday’s, Saturday’s and Sunday’s. Brown has hit the ceiling of what he can get away with and he’s pissed because he’s always gotten what he wanted because he can catch a ball and run with it. He was given little warning about conforming to a societal standard of life. He’s always been above mundane manners and civility.

    I’m sure the classy Patriots fan base will be consistent in saying these Tweets aren’t even very threatening to ‘Mr’ Kraft

    I’m just saying about his arguments leading up to him trying to get his signing bonuses. Stupid.
