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

    • You're 100% right. But at least now, I think we're more aware of it than we were in 2016. I several times was wavering towards voting third party in 2016 (until all the 3rd party candidates proved themselves to be horrifically incompetent, and Trump proved himself to be horrifically incompetent AND evil). Now I, and hopefully many others, KNOW where this support for these 3rd party candidates come from, and exactly what its intention is.   From the amazing[ly disheartening] documentary, The Great Hack:   Their goal is to drive apathy. They don't care about the third party winning. They don't even care about the 3rd party stealing votes. The goal is to dishearten you from voting at all. These third party candidates are being propped up to drain your enthusiasm for your major party candidate. The goal is to make the third party candidate seem to be everything the major party candidate isn't (in this case, the Democratic candidate), so you start thinking, "I'll vote for them as a protest vote, so next time my party picks a candidate that's more like this third party candidate I like." But you know in your heart, they aren't going to win. Your protest vote doesn't matter. Voting doesn't matter. So by now, you're so frustrated with the major party candidate, and the electoral process, that on election day you probably just stay home.   If the DNC were smart, they'd be pumping money into the coffers of Joe Walsh and every possible primary challenger for Trump. Buy them ad time, so they can get on TV and talk about all the things Republicans used to care about. And they'll start going, "Man I wish we had a guy like that. Trump's great because he owns the libs, but if I'm being honest, I'm getting sick of all the scandals and the economy, and the stupid tweets. I wish we could just have a gold old stiff shirt Reagan/Bush/Romney type again." You'll never swing them to vote for a Dem, but you can discourage them from voting at all. If you could frustrate them, sap their enthusiasm for Trump, I think enough of them would stay home that go to the effort to grudginly vote for him because he's "our guy."
    • I wish people would actually think about how ridiculous it would be for the NFL to actually rig games. First of all, this would have to be coordinated with a large number of people, namely the referees. The more people you have involved in a conspiracy the more likely it is to get out. Secondly, if it were ever to get out it would absolutely ruin the NFL and cost the owners billions of dollars. The extremely tiny amount of money there is to be gained by rigging games does not even come close to offsetting the high risk it would get out and destroy the league. There is no chance the NFL is conspiring to fix games. There is always the possibility of a rogue referee like with Donaghy in the NBA but there is definitely no league wide conspiracy. If there was you would think they might try helping the most popular team, the Dallas Cowboys, rather than let them languish in mediocrity for decades.
