    probably close to literally retarded. 85 IQ? That's probably generous. I think that would be the ceiling. 70 to 75 is a likely to be a lot closer to the truth. Those of us who are "woke" to these things tend to look at averages. Somewhere around half are below average, and football players are seldom above the average on anything having to do with intelligence. "Smart" football coaches and players are usually morons in everyday life.

    All that said, this is just as likely to be some THOT trying to cash in. This is a sick society. It's hard to tell.

    It may have been 90 or less back in his college days but he is obviously punchy at this point and his IQ has drifted below the 90 point Mendoza line, I suspect the lower the IQ of the player pre CTE the quicker the onset of the disease and the worse symptoms.

    Somebody with a brain of Fitz Magic might not show any signs until they are very old because his IQ was/ is a near genius level IQ, Mr. Big Chest didn't have the brain cells to spare......

    This is the same thing that just happened to Kristaps Porzingis. It's a cash grab attempt, she was in a relationship with him.

    The first claimed incident was that he exposed himself to her, and kissed her without her permission. Then a month later she went to his house and watched TV where the next alleged incident happened.

    Say what you want about him, I believe this is just a money grab.

    No I was expecting a blonde ditz ie Chrissy from Three's Company but she is Black. At least potential White sluts know what's going in this guys personal life, the choice is theirs to risk STD's to rape.

    Here’s a photo of the accuser:

    And here’s a screenshot of some sort of message from Antonio Brown to her. I’ve not seen a butchering of the English language at this level. I was unable to decipher what the hell he’s trying to say:

    Don Wassall is correct, this guy is fully retarded. How does a supposedly first-class organization like the Patriots fall for this garbage? Belichick does have a reputation for outsmarting himself from time to time with certain play calls and other football related
    matters. This appears to be one of them.

    The Antonio Brown sh*tshow continues unabated, and the Patriots are needlessly right in the middle of it.

    So, the $64 question is, do the Patriots suit this jerk up Sunday?

    I really don't care if blacks "act white" not my concern. Does this impact white players, yes that I have more interest in, but acting like a conservative white scold is an act that only gets met with derision by about anyone under age 50. I would like a miracle in that AB start acting like an adult man, but I doubt that so his value is to be a millstone about the blacks in the background who shove this crap in our faces out of spite, there is our leverage. I prefer leverage over the failed conservative outrage script.

    Quincy Enunwa of the Jets was just put on the IR for the season with a neck injury and Braxton Berrios is that much closer to getting in the game at WR.

    Well I figured Mr. Big Chest basically admits he pulled a Harvey Weinstein fiendish act on her back, beyond that we would need an Ebonics translator to figure out what he was saying. Maybe Allen Iverson could volunteer to translate this for the public.....

    Welcome to the circus, Bill.

    Bill Belichick rejects questions on allegations against Antonio Brown

    New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick refused to address any and all questions on Wednesday about the allegations against receiver Antonio Brown, who the Patriots signed on Saturday. Belichick issued a brief opening statement during a press conference.

    “On Antonio’s situation, both Antonio and his representatives have made statements,” Belichick said. “I’m not going to be expanding on any of those. They are what they are. We’ve looked into the situation. We’re taking it very seriously all the way through the organization. I’m sure there are questions but I’m not going to be entering the discussion about that today.”

    In both texts, he admits to ejaculating on her back. I don’t believe there are any texts where he discusses the incident in which he physically “held her down” and raped her. As with so many rape accusations, it could’ve easily been consensual. Why would a woman continually hang around a man who (they perceive) sexually assaulted them in the past? If Brown held her down and raped her, why didn’t she leave his residence and call the police? I don’t buy it.

    Back in 2010, Big Ben was placed on the Commissioners Exempt List for allegations that he raped a drunken slut in the bathroom of a club. Even though he was never convicted due to lack of evidence, he was suspended 6 games (later reduced to 4). It stands to reason that this could happen to Brown as well.

    I wonder if the Pats miss their all-white receiving corps that won them Super Bowl 51? Gronk was on IR and Edelman/Amendola/Hogan got the job done.

    They could’ve easily re-signed Hogan and Amendola (both of whom have 2 Championship rings as starting WR’s with the organization) this past offseason. I think this is their just deserts.

    The first alleged incident of groping and forced kissing, I could maybe see somebody giving somebody a second chance if the perpetrator pretends to have empathy for the victim, but the second is crazy and nobody without Stockholm Syndrome would go near the perpetrator and after the second incident so third alleged incident should have never happened.

    I can't go in the head of woman but maybe she was coaxed into not notifying the police after the second incident.

    Anyway Brown is a danger to himself and to others and should be in psychiatric ward somewhere, not playing on Sundays.

    Veteran Caste Clown Dan Patrick is reporting that Antonio Brown won't be placed on the commissioner's exempt list after the civil suit accusing him of rape was filed earlier this week. With his illegitimate children, volatility, incredible stupidity, and bad temper, I'm not as easily swayed as some that his alleged victim is merely trying to pry money out of him. Brown simply doesn't recognize boundaries on his behavior. Some may not be aware of this incident where in a rage he threw furniture off a balcony from 14 floors up, nearly hitting and killing a two-year-old child:

    Antonio Brown Sued, Allegedly Threw Furniture off Balcony That Endangered Child

    A lawsuit has been filed against Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown after he allegedly threw furniture off the balcony of his 14th-story apartment in April. According to TMZ Sports on Tuesday, Ophir Sternberg is suing Brown for nearly killing his 22-month son "in a fit of rage." Per CBS Pittsburgh, the alleged incident occurred in Brown's home state of Florida. Sternberg said Brown threw two vases, an ottoman and other furniture, which nearly hit his son as he was walking around the pool area of the apartment complex with his grandfather. Sternberg is suing for assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress, adding that Brown acted "without regard for human life."

    It was reported in the lawsuit that the child has suffered from night terrors since the incident. The alleged incident was reportedly caught on surveillance video, and Sternberg said the All-Pro wideout "was extremely agitated, acting aggressively, and yelling at security personnel when [police] arrived to the scene." The 30-year-old Brown is in the midst of his ninth NFL season, all of which have been spent with the Steelers.

    Brown has been at the center of controversy throughout the 2018 campaign. He threatened an ESPN reporter on Twitter in September and later tweeted, "Trade me, let's find out," in response to a former Steelers employee's opinion that his success was the result of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

    Brown has 35 receptions for 373 yards and is tied for the second-highest number of receiving touchdowns in the league (five). On Sunday, he reeled in six passes for 101 yards and two scores in a 41-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons in his best performance of the season.

    The specific amount Sternberg is seeking in damages from Brown was not released, and Brown has yet to comment.

    Apparently the Patriots did not know of the civil allegations against Brown prior to signing him, although the parties had been in settlement negotiations for months. So, basically Drew Rosenhaus ****** the Patriots while hiding behind the “confidentiality” of the settlement process. I can’t imagine the Patriots would have signed Brown otherwise. Now to save face, they are sticking with him. Hopefully this blows up in Drew Rosenhaus’ face now that teams can’t trust him not to knowingly sell them damaged goods.

    It'll be a sad day if the best clutch kicker in NFL history is hanging them up:

    Speaking after Sunday's win over the Titans, 46-year-old Colts K Adam Vinatieri hinted he will announce his retirement on Monday.
    Coming off a Week 1 where he missed a pair of field goals and an extra point, Vinatieri shanked two more extra points in Tennessee. Flagged down by The Athletic's Stephen Holder after the game, Vinatieri, who was not scheduled to meet with the media on Monday, said he will do just that. By far the greatest kicker of the modern era, Vinatieri will be Canton bound when he calls it a career.

    Not sad IMO, he had his time and made the best of it. Reminds me of back in the day as a young NASCAR fan I liked Richard Petty who obviously was just filling the field and how many of the even bigger fans were pretty sharp in critiquing him. It was because he was taking up space from a younger driver, and my friends were being adult men who knew when it was time to step aside.

    I'll be surprised if Rudolph doesn't play well. May take him a few games of experience but he should be fine.

    It was an elbow injury that prematurely ended Terry Bradshaw's career. Big Ben is 37 and took a real beating earlier in his career, this may be the beginning of a transition at QB and for the team as a whole as 2019 already looks like a lost season. It would be nice to see the transition include a new head coach starting next year but that's highly unlikely no matter how badly this one may go.

    It's good that they traded Dobbs just last week to Jax, so there won't be any quarterback controversy the first time Rudolph throws a pick.

    I watched a lot of Rudolph in college and he is a very good qb - not afraid to throw it deep either. His progression from year one to year two in preseason was very promising as well. On top of that he is a very good kid - good head on his shoulders. I hope he is able to perform well moving forward and become the next franchise qb for the Steelers.

    At least the Steelers prepared for this - the Saints have a mediocre backup in Bridgewater which now ups the number of starting black qbs In the league. The colts replaced Luck with a quotaback, the Chargers have idler arm waiting if the iron man Rivers is hurt, the redskins will get their quotaback in at some point.

    Another unbelievable article detailing the life and times of Antonio Brown. The article includes a story in which Brown repeatedly "broke wind" on a doctor during an exam. I'm not joking...

    Sports Illustrated has identified several people Brown similarly cut out of his life, allegedly before payments for goods and services were made. Many of them say they were subjected to Brown’s unusual behavior. Dr. Victor Prisk, a former gymnast and bodybuilder who runs Prisk Orthopaedics and Wellness (POW) in Monroeville, Pa., says he was wary of Brown’s reputation in the athletic performance community for being, in his words, a “flighty” client. Still, in August 2018, he took an initial meeting with Brown, for which he says the receiver was three hours late. Upon arrival, Brown passed gas numerous times in Prisk’s vicinity while Prisk was testing his body fat. A video, shot by a Brown acolyte, made the rounds on the internet. “It seemed just childish to me,” Prisk says now. “I’m a doctor and this man is farting in my face.”

    Also, it seems like "cracker" is a term that Brown uses quite frequently against whites. A white chef he hired to cater a party shared this story:

    "Tedeschi says that, as service people tending to various aspects of the vacation rental came in and out of the house throughout the week, he overheard Brown say on more than one occasion, “Get those m-----f---ing crackers out of here.” (Unfamiliar with the term, he asked his wife to Google whether or not “cracker” was a slur.) Tedeschi’s wife raised concerns with her husband when she heard Brown openly referring to women at the festivities as “f---ing b-----s.” During the party, a handful of players, including Brown, were using the top floor to host women, Tedeschi says. Several players openly smoked marijuana. Meanwhile, Brown’s children were in attendance. A concierge, angered by what she saw, complained to Kyriss, chastising her for tolerating the scene."

    Another complaint involved Brown exposing himself to a black female artist who he hired to paint a portrait of himself at his mansion, various assistants, doctors, personal chefs, managers, and personal trainers that Brown screwed financially. He's being sued by so many different people for so many different reasons. This negro might have more audacity than any other in NFL history.
