Antonio Brown’s mind

Postby thebeast » Fri Aug 09, 2019 1:43 pm

Who cares about his feet, the guy has lost his mind. Now it’s being reported he won’t play if he has to change to the new league mandated helmets.

This isn’t going to end well...

Mayock wishing he stayed at NFL Network and continuing to soak up praise for his "brilliant" draft coverage yet? Raiders are a joke franchise, anyone that didn't see massive headaches coming along with AB is clueless.

Wont play? He said he will flat out retire. Has been such an amazing NFL WR, sad that this is how its going down near the end of his career.

All this raises serious questions about Antonio's mental health. This is well beyond diva level stuff or top competitor drama. He's acting like those NFL retirees years afterwards who had too many hits to the head. And start acting irratic and hostile. Alarm bells gotta be going off by now with everyone around him - family, anybody in the Raiders front office, heck even the league has to be concerned by now. Well beyond fantasy football...

Maybe he's suffering from CTE.

Ironic that he wants to keep using his old helmet which is the likley culprit.

Something always happens when a small amount of optimism happens for the Raiders..
Always.

That said - yeah, it is actually starting to seem like something may not be mentally right with him..
He claims the new helmets interfere with his sight of the ball when it is coming toward him, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me but I haven't worn the new helmets.

You would think that AB, who has been concussed would be all for a helmet that is supposed to make those injuries less likely..

The whole painting the helmet thing is just.. yeah, I don't even know. First the feet, then this stuff; something isn't quite right with him. He was always a bit of a diva, but he's a hard worker and this just isn't normal - even for him.

I think he is the best WR in the league, and while I would hate to eat what we just sent for him - AB may be better off retiring for his own sake at this point.

To wit, Michael Silver's excellent 20 point tweet on the AB helmet drama and layers around it is worth the read. Screams out mental health (CTE?) issues to me. Scary and sad!

"10) When he showed up for the 1st OTA, however, Brown requested his old helmet. After being told he’d have to wear an approved model, witnesses say, the WR loudly voiced his displeasure, complaining QBs such as Brady and Rodgers were not being subjected to the same scrutiny...
11) Shortly thereafter, Brown stormed out of the facility in protest. Later that day, Raiders officials found video footage of Rodgers, during the Green Bay Packers’ OTA session, wearing an approved-model helmet and texted it to Brown...
12) The following day, Brown showed up in Alameda and acted like nothing had happened, accepting the new helmet from an equipment manager without protest and completing the workout...
13) However, sometime in the next couple of weeks, Brown once again tried to take the field with his old helmet, which he had since had repainted with colors approximating—but not completely mimicking—the Raiders’ silver-and-black design...
14) He was told the helmet was not allowed, and once again, he acquiesced and wore the new model. Before Brown arrived at training camp last month, coaches and teammates believed the issue had been resolved...
15) But Brown, who practiced on his tender feet for only two days before leaving Napa to seek another opinion, tried yet again to sneak his old helmet onto the practice field, ultimately being told by team officials to remove it...
. . .
19) Brown, according to witnesses, typically glances at the screens of several tablets and his smart phone during meetings, distracting himself by engaging in activities which include perusing his bank accounts and “liking” photos on Instagram...
20) Still, according to one source, “the meeting thing isn’t that bad… but the feet, helmet and going dark is an issue.”"
