Antonio Brown's NFL Suspension Over COVID-19 Rules Prompts Questions

That these same questions are raised so often and then explained away so easily tells you everything you need to know.

He's black.
 
2021-12-03 8:33:05 AM  
We all know that AB has had serious issues. But that should not change how the NFL treats this situation.

So he got harsher treatment because he's black, and they see him as a problem, and want to make an example.

Which is the best example for those that know they're held to no standard.

The thing is, Rodgers did not lie to the NFL, he lied to the public. They knew exactly what his status was, and decided to protect one of their premier players from criticism, and with doing that, let him flaunt protocols to keep the lie to the public going.

AB flat out lied to the NFL and provided fake documentation. I'm guessing that the only reason why his punishment was more severe is because of the Rodgers situation. And hell, AB may not be out of the woods yet, there could be criminal charges against him for falsifying government documents.

2021-12-03 9:03:23 AM  
I don't feel good doing this, but in a weak defense of AB, he was convinced by other players that what he was doing was a farking dumb thing and got vaccinated early on in the season.  So at least, in the end, he kinda did the right thing?  Not really though..

AB is a moron and committed a felony by obtaining a fraudulent Vax card. He lied to the NFL. A.A.Ron told the NFL up front about his moon beam and crystals treatment and after months long bullshirt he caught covid and had to eat shiat. But he never lied to his employer. He lied to the fans and media but that isn't a felony.

his lawyer said the star player is fully vaccinated. It was unclear why Brown would need a fake vaccination card if he is fully vaccinated.

I think both things are true. He bought a fake card, presented it, but later got vaccinated. The NFL has said that Brown is fully vaccinated...now.

Brown has a pretty long legacy of hiring people to do work for him, then refusing to pay them, often claiming that the "publicity" or "exposure" from being able to claim they worked for him magically has the exact value of what he owes them. Then they sue, he loses, rinse and repeat. From everything it seems here, he didn't pay the chef for his services, so the chef decided to dish out some dirt.

Rogers absolutely should have been suspended for what he did.  But Brown (fire up Chips!) is a total nutjob that is in constant trouble both on and off the job.  Repeat offenders should get tougher punishments.
 
2021-12-03 10:40:53 AM  
all I know is when Tom Brady finally tires of AB and tells the Bucs to get rid of him - it's going to be about six months before Brown is in prison or dead. this isn't going to end well for him unless he gets some help
 
2021-12-03 10:49:52 AM  
Anyone that thinks Antonio Brown got screwed consider this: The NFLPA and the NFL released a joint statement announcing the suspension. Unions don't like to give back money and the players union is on board.

Yeah he violated protocols and should be punished.

But there is a big difference between what Rodgers did and what Brown did. And Brown should absolutely face much more severe penalties for his actions.

Remember asshole NFL WR Chris Henry? He wasn't even entirely out of the NFL yet when he got himself killed doing something stupid during a domestic upheaval of some sort.  They found CTE upon performing an autopsy. Brown experienced a brutal and impoverished childhood as I understand it. That negatively effects neurological development, so odds are he's got less to work with from the gate. Then he makes his living by an activity where you get violently jostled and struck on the head frequently. I'm sure it's a problem. Doesn't make him not unpleasant to deal with, doesn't mean he shouldn't get punished when he oversteps his bounds. But maybe if he does something that warrants a prison stay, you send him to a state hospital instead.

Sadly, this. Rodgers is a starting QB and the face of a major team. Brown is a veteran player on a short-term free-agent contract nearing the end of his career. The brand name didn't get punished.

• Two days later AB wants to play again and is asking for the league to wrap up it's investigation
• The NFL announces an eight game suspension for AB
• AB signs with the Buccaneers on a one-year deal
• Before he signed with the Buccaneers AB was accused of destroying a surveillance camera at a Florida gated community, throwing bike at a security-guard shack, and is not charged because HOA president "feared" retaliation, per police report
• AB is under investigation by the NFL for the bike throwing incident
• Acquired fake covid-19 card


Brown and Rodgers have the same number of Super Bowl rings, one each (Rodgers actually beat Brown's Steelers for his). That's all that really matters here.

Both men are assholes, neither will be remembered in 10 years. That's why Rodgers is so unhappy all the time, knowing his career got Brady'd and he can't do anything about it on a mediocre team in a terrible market. The NFC north is basically free every season and GB doesn't do shiat with it.

There are stupidly foolish takes (the first bold). And then truly exceptionally foolish takes (the second bold).

Your blog sucks.

Saying that these are both violations and that the rest is details is like saying that car jacking and petty shop lifting are both theft-related crimes and the rest is details. It is even more laughably stupid than I expected.

LL316: Rogers absolutely should have been suspended for what he did.  But Brown (fire up Chips!) is a total nutjob that is in constant trouble both on and off the job.  Repeat offenders should get tougher punishments.


No, that's not what was agreed to.  First violations are a fine.  Second violations are a very large fine.  THEN you get suspended.

And, really, it's up to the teams to enforce the protocols.  It was the team that willingly let him slide on them.  That's why the fine for the team was so much bigger.

Faking a card is fraud.  That has suspension (and possible criminal charges) on it immediately.  Also very different.

They're both assholes, but that's where the similarity ends.

greentea1985: Gubbo: ongbok: The thing is, Rodgers did not lie to the NFL, he lied to the public. They knew exactly what his status was, and decided to protect one of their premier players from criticism, and with doing that, let him flaunt protocols to keep the lie to the public going.

AB flat out lied to the NFL and provided fake documentation. I'm guessing that the only reason why his punishment was more severe is because of the Rodgers situation. And hell, AB may not be out of the woods yet, there could be criminal charges against him for falsifying government documents.

With great talent comes great leniency.

There's also a lot of value to be had in making others complicit in your lie.

Anyone who thinks these situations are the same should probably check out the pol tab. They'll fit right in.

Sadly, this. Rodgers is a starting QB and the face of a major team. Brown is a veteran player on a short-term free-agent contract nearing the end of his career. The brand name didn't get punished.


No, moron, if he faked his vaccine card he would've gotten the exact same punishment.  THEY DID NOT COMMIT THE SAME INFRACTIONS.  How hard is this to understand?  The punishments fit EXACTLY what was agreed to between the NFLPA and the owners.

I can see Brown getting a harsher sentence than Rodgers due to the forgery but Rodgers still blatantly and repeatedly violated NFL's Covid policies and put people's health at risk doing so. He got off really easy.

This. AB also committed a federal crime by faking the vaccination card. Rodgers never lied to the NFL, although he did lie to the public. The NFL knew he wasn't really vaccinated, so thus, the NFL has no reason to suspend him. He was honest to the NFL.

The NFL had reason to suspend him because he was flagrantly and repeatedly violating league safety rules, putting employees, players and media members' health and safety at risk.
