The AB saga continues.  He has filed a grievance over the helmet.

I think the guy lost it about two years ago.  Some wire came loose or something.  This weird behavior has been occurring on and off the field.

Let him retire. I'm sure he saved his money. He seems really responsible.

He will not retire. It's just Antonio Brown being dramatic as a way of getting to wear the helmet he prefers.

I’m no defender of the league but sometimes it seems like no matter what they do someone is pushing back. The league is making an effort to ensure the helmets are safer and offer more protection what really is there to argue?


I can understand players having a hard time adjusting to the new rules of tackling and having to unlearn hitting with your head because it’s a learned technique but to fight over not wanting a helmet that has been deemed safer?

Some of these fuckers don't seem to realize that all they do is play football. 
And the way the NFL game has gone over the last decade no NFL isn't the worst that could happen. Except for those who make a living on the betting of football.
What besides a homeless loser would Antonio Brown be without football. I doubt he excelled in academics in college.
Even though I'm a life long Raiders fan I don't have any fucks to give about whether he ever plays a game for the Raiders. He's a cancer, and it's not like he can cure cancer which might make his pompous ass useful. Let him retire and if the Raiders have given him even a dime sue him to get it back.

Do you think the NFL is going to budge on this?

They shouldn’t budge, the article I read said the helmet he wants to wear is 10 years and the manufacturer won’t certify a helmet that old.

The helmet is acting older than Antonio Brown is.

I hope he sits out. I want him to screw both the Raiders/Gruden and himself. NFL isn't gonna let him switch back.

Antonio Brown's attempt at overturning a ruling stating he could not wear his long term helmet has failed. He has said he will comply and wear a new helmet that meets safety standards and join the Raiders. I cannot believe any fans or media members actually for one split second truly believed he was going to retire over this issue and leave all that money on the table.

To belatedly answer this question, I did not base my opinion on the idea that the NFL would budge and let him wear an outdated helmet that didn't meet safety standards. Such a thing would be a lawsuit waiting to happen if he got hurt, regardless of any waivers that may have been signed, and would have set a bad precedent for other players wanting to wear outdated and unsafe equipment for whatever reason. My opinion was based on me not for one second believing Antonio Brown would go through with retiring if he got a final and binding ruling against him wearing his old helmet. It was ridiculous of him to threaten retirement in the first place when such a move was financially damaging to him, would make him look like a joke, and when he had no intention of ever really doing so and was going to back down when, not if, he was shot down.
