I'm sure somebody tried to warn you guys...

Congrats on becoming the new Browns.

Eh, if he's late to things and he's still the best WR in football, who cares? For all the hoopla about him being a distraction and all that horsehockey he's way down the list of reasons the Steelers haven't won a Super Bowl lately. And way high on the list of reasons why they've won

I had a good laugh at the dogwhistling when a nobody backup player whose one claim to fame was a controversial replay challenge said he was happy to leave because Bell and Brown caused too many problems. Funny how the other backup nobody who said Ben once fumbled on purpose was quickly brushed aside

AB as a Raider in Vegas in 2 years absolutely won't blow up in their faces.

Nobody likes an unclear strawman.   Who is the first nobody?

Huh?  The steelers won in 2009.  There have only been 9 other winners since then.

The Raiders always will take the conduct cases and hang their hats on "it's the Raider's way" of taking misfits.  They last won a superbowl in 1983.  Hell they have had ONE winning season in the last 15 years.

/screw you for making me defend the Steelers
//but you allowed me to crap on the Raiders
///we'll call it a draw

Oh I know that, but in Pittsburgh if you don't win a Super Bowl you're a failure. They want to run off the Hall-of-Fame caliber coach for the crime of having really good teams, but not winning a Super Bowl since 2008. Ask them who should replace him that would actually be an upgrade and you'll get blank stares, but they just know he should be gone. I'd say it was racial, but they treated Bill Cowher the same way

Of course there is now a contingent (probably the same who hated him) who long for Cowher now. They say he would never would have let the locker room get out of hand. The same Cowher who let the locker room get so out of hand guys were throwing chairs at each other.

I'll go further. As much as people like to rip on his off field behavior early in his career they dont recognize that he had to do an about face and truly start being careful about how he handled himself. And if social considerations are the issue why was AB the ONLY player renting off campus housing during summer camp while everyone else, including Ben, stayed as a team in the dorms.

Ben's a dick. AB's a dick that has shown he is willing to abandon his teammates. Not sure why Bell gets thrown in there by lovers or haters. He wanted big money and used the options available to him. No problem with him and he has expressed none toward the team

I know I'm going to follow both Brown's and Bell's careers, especially Bell because if he lives up to his potential he'll be crazy good and break records.

As far as Bell getting lumped in by some people, you're forgetting a few things. An argument can certainly be made that he also was willing to abandon his teammates - those suspensions for smoking weed, he knew what would happen. He also continually said that he was going to play last season and did not. And had his own set of social media blunders.
Just sayin'.

To be fair, the Onion (and you) was/are playing off of real electric billboards Antonio bought immediately after he was traded - they say
THANK YOU

Yeah, I work in town but somehow missed seeing that one even though I go through that intersection every day.  I stole the pic from Benstonium.
