    No you can’t let him make bad choices because the league is who AB will go after 20 years from now and what will the league say he chose the wrong helmet! The waiver won’t hold up. Will is full of shit who would call the nfl out he just got in to deep to back off his bad opinion

    New helmets are made from carbon graphite, they would destroy a helmet that is ten years old in technology

    You have athletes like Colin Kaepernick that have sacrificed his career for the injustice of black people. And this guy is making up noise about a helmet that is league standard, that will help him not lose brain cells and prolong his career in this league?! In the words of Keyshawn Johnson...C'mon man! If you're gonna take a stand do it over something worth standing for...smh. Mike Mayock should trade his a$$

    The helmet is crucial, a Helmet is like a shoe to a basketball player a gun to a cop,it’s like the car for a uber driver n go on n on, they should slow him to wear it and not let future players use that model, it can throw of his vision and skills jus a little bit so he won’t have the edge n some situations

    Feel like Will made a pretty solid argument here. Just let Brown wear his helmet. If he gets a concussion, that's on him.

    Why should he be forced to wear a new helmet when it only affects him, it's his safety so it should be his choice.

    AB is being selfish, childish & petty? Well... That's nothing new. Why does this surprise anyone? He's been nothing but trouble every since he came into the NFL. What good is being that talented if he's just going to act like an entitled little DIVA??? The NFL should BAN HIM & take away this years & last years pay because he hasn't done anything but be DIFFICULT. I'm so over listening to sports analysts give this douchebag more attention than he deserves smh. 🖕🏽 AB. 👎🏾👎🏾

    Heck no they shouldn't allow him to sign a waiver and continue to play. What kind of message is that going to send? Our players can act like 5 year old children and we're just going to bend and give them their way?The NFL has already had enough problems when it comes to players getting away with actions on and off the field that they should not be.Give me Antonio Brown a very very mild dose of how the real world actually works. Nobody else in the world gets to go into their workplace and act like this and expect to have your will given into or even have a job the next day.This whole situation is a really good example of why people don't give a rat's ass about the players scolding us and lecturing us on societal issues.Nobody else except these millionaire athletes has the ability to behave like this and continue to be employed.

  • Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard

    Good God, he is showing why the Steelers got rid of him !!! Oh yes, he wears his old helmet, then in 10 or more years from now when is not playing any longer, he will sue the NFL for Concussion !! What a DIVA he is !!

    You are too kind calling him petty and childish. To me he is a turd in the grass. Nice to walk on grass till you step on a turd like AB. My poor raiders have to walk on homefield turf with a Brown turd amongst them. GTFO of football you turd. Now he claims the NFL being prejudice .. WTF is wrong with you??? You POS Brown turd!!!!I actually took his side against big ben but now im against . The game will move on without your self centered punk ass biotch so retire already..nobody likes a turd!!!
