ANTONIO BROWN AND THE SOAP OPERA IN PITTSBURGH

With Super Bowl 53 in near sight, you would think that is what should be dominating the headlines on ESPN, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. There isn’t a day that goes by where I do not hear something about the damn Steelers and Antonio Brown. Is it that they missed the playoffs? This news is not relevant, the offseason hasn’t even started yet? Antonio Brown is probably the most controversial guy in the NFL right now, but why is the media spending more time on this guy who screwed over his team? The SUPER BOWL coming up Feb. 3rd? All media outlets are so enthused with covering the disastrous ending of the Steelers season, and all the drama that came with it. Ben Roethlisberger is the problem, AB is the problem, it’s Mike Tomlin’s fault….GROW UP. A player must be selfish to provide for him and his family, understood, but must be selfless most often on field to show his team and organization that he cares. Antonio clearly doesn’t care after a no call no show from practice Wed-Sat and have Drew Rosenhaus call and say, “He’s Ready”. Unfortunately that bullshit just doesn’t happen in Pittsburgh. The social media actions of AB also are stupid as hell too. Art Rooney will seek top offer for AB, and he will be headed to San Francisco early March (*hot take), but that shouldn’t be the news now. They should be covering the Super Bowl and the propositions/ predicted outcomes for the biggest game in the world.
