Brown files new grievance over helmet issue

Recommended Posts



When a franchise that's won six Super Bowls and is trying to maximize the finals seasons of a HOF QB's career is willing to trade arguably the best WR in the game... well, it raises some very real concerns as to why. This is why.

that f'ing idiot that has done more than you ever will?  who is better at his job than you'll ever be?  that one?  6 straight 100 catch seasons.  that one?  

Yes. That would be the one. 

By your logic, I suppose Ritchie Incognito is a scholar? He’s done more with his life than you. Pretty damn good at his job too. So I guess he’s not an idiot then? 

The president of the United States of America has done more with his life than you as well. Are you gonna stick with your nonsense argument still or what? Lol

AB is a fugging idiot. Deal with it.

He actually has a point on this one though.

Not really. The league is being sued for a billion dollars by the players over safety and concussion related issues and he, a player, is upset because they won’t let him wear a helmet that doesn’t pass safety standards.

but that's the trick, cte is the real issue and they want you to believe they can do something about it when they can't.  they've shifted the conversation, on purpose, for marketing.

The Raiders took a chance on dating someone's hot, but crazy, ex-girlfriend. Regrets are beginning to pile up, a few fears, too.

So when Mike Mayock says “or else”

what exactly would they do after signing him to $50 million?

He’s making the Steelers right about how they do their contracts. No guarantee money, small signing bonus so you aren’t stuck with them.

the whole league should go to contracts like that and tell players if they don’t like it, they can go bag groceries.

back to the Raiders,.. again what is the “or else”?  Can they sue him for non performance?

there should be a bobble head that just says “I want my helmet,  I want my helmet, I want my helmet”

Can race car drivers sign a waiver to avoid wearing seatbelts?

He's not asking about not wearing a helmet. He's asking to wear a helmet deemed "not a safe". Mind you he has wore this helmet his entire career. Nice try though.

I don't agree. Why do you believe so?

 

There’s already a precedent for players getting a year grace period to wear a banned helmet. Brady won the SB last year wearing a helmet that doesn’t pass safety standards. And Brown’s helmet wasn’t even banned it was just too old, now the league is trying to change the rules and say oh even if you find one less than 10 years old, that’s banned now. It’s ridiculous. Not that I have any sympathy for Brown who is a total headcase.

the league is eating this up because its making them look good.  everyone at espn and fox has got their talking points from the league and lots of y'all are eating them up without any critical thinking.    well, there seem to be some that just love trying to make themselves feel better by dogging out ab too, but what can you do about that. the more the conversation stays on new helmet regs to reduce concussions the less you hear about cte - which is really what the issue is.

CTE is the biggest looming issue, but helmets have improved drastically over the past 5 years and can really help prevent concussions, which can still f up someone’s life

    • everyone gets automatically enrolled in M4A after phase in. Its universal. Same way public schools work. Everyone pays for public schools even if you send your kids private. There would need be a niche market for uber wealth to have private insurance  
    • Employer dependent medical insurance ties employees to their employers. Private for profit insurance is costly for startups, small businesses and the self employed.  Medicare for All allows workers to change jobs without fear of having gaps in insurance coverage.  Lose your job, lose your employer's insurance.  Again, no worries with the M4A system.  M4A has no co-pay or chance of being cancelled due to long term illness either. Medicare is the most cost effective means of delivering healthcare coverage in the nation and has been for over 50 years. Medicare covers elderly and disabled Americans, demographics that typically require some of the most costly medical care. Medicare isn't a "crapshoot" it has a long history of success in this nation of delivering healthcare for less cost. Bottom line:  Only one industrialized nation doesn't have some version of universal single payer healthcare and that is the USA.  Suggesting the USA is incapable of doing what all these other nations have been doing for generations is insulting.  The USA currently spends more per capita than any other nation on earth for healthcare while achieving the 37th best outcomes. The current system is broken and inordinately expensive, creating a financial drain on families, businesses and our nation's economy while simultaneously failing to provide coverage for tens of millions of Americans.  It is long past time to address this elephant in the room. https://morningconsult.com/2019/07/02/majority-backs-medicare-for-all-replacing-private-plans-if-preferred-providers-stay/
    • While I agree it is a huge loss for them regarding the perspective of the rest of the season, Mack wasn’t going to do dick against our tackles anyway. Our backup TE stonewalled him a couple of times. That’s the 2nd time we’ve played him and Armstead and Strief/Ramczyk has put him on a milk carton. The only teams he can feast on are teams with trash offensive lines or dumb coaches that can’t scheme to neutralize him.
