(Yahoo)   Look, being honored as a "Champion of Women's Equality" is all well and good, but, Bruce Arians has a Superbowl to win, and if accused rapist and woman-beater Antonio Brown is going to help him get to the Promised land? Well   (sports.yahoo.com) divider line

You can be as pro woman as you want. But if Tom Brady wants AB he's getting AB, whether Arians wanted him or not

Newsflash: if you're very good at what you do, people will look the other way at your indiscretions. And it's not just athletes. There are plenty of trial attorneys with DUIs, surgeons who cheat on their spouses, well connected sales people that resort to illegal/unethical tactics to close deals, etc. We all like to think the "rules" apply equally to everyone but we know that's it's not the case.

As long as they don't threaten the status quo in the local youth hockey league, it's fine.

Those of us who follow the NFL, particularly female fans, are reminded yet again: The prospect of winning is valued over everything. Even the safety and well-being of women.

Listen, toots. This man's threat to the safety and well-being of women doesn't magically go away if he isn't playing football.

AB's never been convicted, Assmitter.

Well, it depends.  He's not the GM.  It wasn't his decision.

If he pushed for Brown, that's a problem.  If he pushed against it and was overruled, then he's in the clear.

Though, I believe he did say 'I feel like Brown has changed'.  In which case, he's a delusional moron.

For lefty Farkers, #metoo and cancel culture warriors, you are darned right. Accusations are more than enough.

Neither has Rapey McRaperson over in Pittsburgh.

Doesn't mean he didn't do it.

Sure thing J(im)an.

Seriously though, Arians' wife is very, very active in the CASA (court appointed special advocate, also knows as Guardian ad Litem) program.  if you're not aware of it, those are folks who are, as the name says, are appointed to advocate for usually child victims of criminal acts, but also in some cases advocate for victims of domestic abuse.  So I'm guessing dinner at chez Arians was a little icy that night.

yeah he's innocent until proven guilty but i'm guessin mama Arians wasn't exactly sprinting out to buy an AB jersey.

No need to add a redundant statement.

I'm sure you apply this stance consistently to all crimes.  Look forward to your posts in the Philadelphia riots thread.

I would be amazed if a GM ever signed a high-profile player with well-known off-the-field issues without the head coach's agreement. You don't just drop a player like that in the lap of a coach who doesn't want him.

/and if it's a wide receiver and you happen to have the GOAT playing quarterback, you'll need your quarterback's agreement too

Oh, fark off.  Don't pretend like you didn't jerk it to Rudy's 'allegations,' which only Murdoch's NY Post would publish.

OJ is innocent.  Just sayin'.

If you took out all the accused women abusers in the NFL, you wouldn't have much of a league left.
Sad, but true.

And of course, Ben DiNucci is way better than Colin Whatshisname.

Ok, pretend you're completely morally bankrupt and can ignore the accusations against him... the guy's been cancer in every locker room he's ever been in, why would you want that?

Again I'll point out he was perfectly fine in the Steelers locker room for almost a decade before he, for whatever reason, decided to go all coo-koo bananas. He's perfectly capable of being a good citizen for long stretches of time

Except the beating and raping part. Right.

Who on his team did he beat and rape? "Cancer in the locker room" implies he was always a problem in the locker room before he went crazy so he could get cut in 2018. If he was, the Steelers and his teammates hid it exceptionally well. When he's not acting out so he can get cut and go play with Tom Brady he's a model citizen in the locker room
