You know who is actually a bad example for kids: Kareem Hunt, Joe Mixon, Tyreek Hill. These guys transgressions are 10,000x worse than what you are claiming Antonio Brown’s are.JFever wrote: ↑Fri Mar 08, 2019 9:56 amArrylT wrote: ↑Fri Mar 08, 2019 8:08 amPeople act like Antonio Brown is alone at fault. He doesnt do the reporting or the memes. Not to mention you said sport - the NFL is not a sport it is a business. AB is going to handle the business his way & the Steelers will handle business their way. Which side has a lot more money, influence & ability to spin the narrative I'll let you figure out.
I have no issues with how Antonio Brown has handled himself throughout his career. And putting blame on guys like him or Terrell Owens or Odell Beckham who do not act like how people want them to act for the "me too generation" is a very simplistic approach.
Well, I'll respectfully disagree. I'd say it is the very opposite of a simplistic approach. The manor in which he puts himself out there on public tweets, and what he says about who he will or will not play for etc IS THE PROBLEM. There simply is a far more dignified way to do what he wants to do. HE is being an immature diva. I'm not saying that this isn't a business or that he shouldn't care about himself as a business asset. I am however saying that they way he portrays himself is negative, brash, rude, immature, and frankly he sets an incredibly poor example to kids that pay attention to this. It is complete BS and I'll agree that I had no issues with him for most of his career, but for hte past 6 months or so, that has changed. He is now more of a spoiled brat, POS and I will put blame on him because he is calling for it. "ME to generation" is what they are and frankly, I didn't like the way that T Owens handled himself either. So, there's that. These guys are grown up versions of spoiled brats with money. Grow up, be a man, communicate effectively, don't throw temper tantrums in public in order to get your way.... How the F do you defend that approach? It is indefensible in my world view. Pathetic way of going about business, horrible example to set, and as far as I'm concerned, I hope he is done and retires. Peace out girl scout. Defend him all you want but those of you with kids... the next time your kid throws a temper tantrum, be sure to give in and let your kid have his or her way. Because, that is precisely what you are saying you'd support.
And you know who is likely the absolute worst role model in the league for kids? The biggest immoral scumbag in the sport of football? The guy who Antonio Brown started his whole media storm about not getting along with? Ben Roethlisberger. By all accounts a bad leader, a bad teammate, and a serial rapist.
Your post is just beyond ridiculous.
