I'm a Steelers guy and was pumped when he showed up but he's a problem. As far as I know he's been fired from every team he's played for, I think it's 3.
Well today, during the 3rd quarter he took off his jersey, tossed it into the crowd, and walked half naked into the tunnel. Man, we all have problems but this guy seems to enjoy publicly airing his. Goof ball.
The basis of the whole game is barely controlled assault of every type. Between the ethos it takes to play it well and the damage it does to the human brain, it’s amazing to me there isn’t MORE assault of all types from pro players.
I’m completely addicted to watching the game - been doing it since I was about four and have tried unsuccessfully to quit watching it many times. But I basically hate the game and think it should be banned. I was an aggressive but undersized defensive back in high school and scrambled my brains with concussions my junior year. I knew there was something real wrong with me by the end of the season and it took several months to get back to being some semblance of myself. By the late Spring of that year, started feeling like myself again and didn’t play my senior year, despite a lot of pressure to play again. I was done. And the violence in a high school game was a tiny percentage of what it is in college, let alone the pros. Those guys are bigger, faster, tougher than the rest of us, but their brains are just as vulnerable.
Antonio Brown was a supremely talented player who's problems on a football field are the smallest of his problems. I hope he gets help, but worry that this wont end well. Not the football part, the life part…
So with the violence of the sport, one can pull out the CTE or mental issue card as a factor.
However, these guys have a nutjob/jackwagon history that goes back before you can blame getting knocked in the head.
