    Social media:
    • Calling out the mother of his children for not being there 100 percent.
    • Posted what looked to be a shot at Tomlin during his end of season PC.
    • On IG with James Harrison teasing an interview with the real story following Tomlin’s PC.
    • Posted a picture of himself with ARII following Rooney’s interview with Dulac.
    • With his “mentor” Chad Johnson saying he will tell his story soon.


    Media:
    • Had a spat with the media and talked about them putting pressure on him.
    • Called Ed Bouchette a “clown” on Twitter.
    • Threatened ESPN writer Jesse Washington on Twitter.


    Practice:
    • Missed OTAs
    • Arrived at training camp in a helicopter.
    • Left training camp to get treatment for a quad treatment in Miami.
    • Made “trade me” Tweet when criticized on Twitter by former Steelers PR employee.
    • Brown was a no show to meetings on the Monday after the Chiefs game.
    • Incidents leading up to him missing the Bengals game.


    Other:
    • Notoriously late for events, showed up over 4 hours late for a visit to Children’s Hospital.
    • Lawsuit for throwing things off a balcony in Florida.
    • Busted for speeding at over 100 mph on McKnight Road.
    • Did not return phone calls to teammates, coaches, or owner at the end of the season.


    BTW, all of these have happened since the end of last season.
    Yes, the drop of a hat... This post wasn't just about AB. I've seen the fans just flip instantly on players and demand they dump them no matter the cost.

    There is a lot to play out still. A sit down with Rooney, a meeting of Tomlin, Rooney, and Colbert to discuss roster moves, etc.

    Right now, we only know what the media has said, and there are just as many reports disputing half of the claims. So far, Tomlin and Ben are the only two to address the situation directly. Everything else is from a "source"

    This is not to say AB is absolved of anything, just that I'm willing to let it all play out before saying things like fuck AB, dump him, or the even dumber statement "his best days are behind him"

    Tomlin was pissed. We also had the owner address it and ARII made a pretty bold statement with his words.

    AB still has a lot left as a player.
    Let it play out. Media is running this bigger than needed.

    Do not dump him yet.

    How do you know that? Maybe it's bigger than the media is making it out to be?

    If it's bigger than the media is making it out to be, why did ARII address it?

    what gets me is AB could end all this shit himself. Now.
    All he has to do is return Rooney's call. The fucking team owner calls and he doesnt answer. I mean, the guy who writes your check and you dis the dude? That takes some serious ignorance, arrogance and all kinds of ants.
    That said, Rooney didn't flat out say AB would not be on the team next year. Most likely he won't if this crap continues.

    But, if AB wanted to end all this speculation, he could return Rooney's call and tell him to either explore trades, or be apologetic. The fact that he doesn't and hasn't shows how fucking childish and selfish he is.

    And, yes, this team is a rehash of the Bungles team from a few years ago. Loaded in talent, and spoiled by a few bad apples.

    Cause he's the owner and is trying to calm the waters surrounding his franchise.

    As a fan just trust the front office knows what they are doing and leave it at that.
    AB is no saint, but I'm not going to hold him over the fire just yet.


    If he's traded then he's traded.
    2019 rolls on.


    If he's around then hope he man's up and plays ball

    Maybe it is
    Maybe it isn't


    Only those involved know.
    We as fans can only speculate and assume the better

    I'm not sure what Rooney said calmed the waters in terms of AB's relationship with the team.

    Drug test AB.

    My guess is AB took out a LLoyds of London policy on himself getting MVP. When he didn’t get it, and thus the $$$$ he went into diva mode tantrum Gatorade juvenile 2.0

    We actually want maximum value for him if traded, drug testing him would be counter productive if he fails or not?
    She said, "Love me, " so I love her
    She said, "Leave me, " so I left
    Then I went to Pittsburgh
    And I ain't never comin' back
