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

    • This is a foolish debate to still be having. Yes I am as worried as anybody else about Cams injuries. But if your wrong on this you lose one of the most gifted and unique talents not just the Panthers but the NFL has ever seen. We have been spoiled by years of Cam to think hey we will just find another one next year or Allen is a franchise qb. These guys are extremely hard to find. A guy who can ar his best not be just top 10 but the best qb in the league? Are you kidding me?? I know it's a risk but I say like he said let him write his check.. I can stomach the potential loss of guaranteed money at the quarterback position vs say what we wasted on Matt Khalil and DeAngelo William's and Jonathan Stewart and add in Jake. We have made plenty of bad signing in the past that look like no brainers now. This is not one of them. None of those guys were MVP face of the franchise among the best to ever play the game. This guy is.. sign the MFin contract...
    • What a lot of people don’t realize is that hedge fund managers are, by nature, risk-averse. Now that doesn’t mean that they won’t (or don’t) take risks, but they’ll hedge the risky with plenty of risk-averse “safe”. They would rather make $30M on a lower-risk investment than take a major risk to make $300M. And that’s OK.  That’s the financial sector where you’re playing with other people’s (big) money. But now, as the owner of the Carolina Panthers, every dime at this point is his OWN money, but he’s still displaying those risk-averse “50-50” instincts. Fire Rivera. Retain “great talent evaluator” (lol) Hurney. Still playing the hedge fund investment game. But this ain’t a hedge fund.  “Risk averse” half-measures are only going to guarantee continued mediocrity (or worse).
