    Never a dull moment at Raider Nation...


    Raiders plan to suspend Antonio Brown after WR's exchange with GM Mike Mayock, per report
    by Lorenzo Reyes USA Today Sept 5 2019


    "Another day in Oakland, another dustup with the Raiders and Antonio Brown.

    Just one day after the receiver publicly blasted his team by posting a disciplinary letter he received for skipping team activities on Instagram, an ESPN report indicates that the team plans to suspend Brown following his exchange Wednesday with general manager Mike Mayock.

    According to the Athletic, Brown was held back by a few teammates during Wednesday's confrontation. NFL Network reported that Brown told Mayock he would hit him in the face and then punted a ball, telling the general manager to fine him for doing so.

    “WHEN YOUR OWN TEAM WANT TO HATE BUT THERE’S NO STOPPING ME NOW DEVIL IS A LIE. EVERYONE GOT TO PAY THIS YEAR SO WE CLEAR,” Brown wrote Wednesday morning in a story posted to his Instagram account."...

    NFL guys seem to think they could cut him now, and owe him nothing.... including getting his roster bonus back. I'd cut my losses and do it.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Wish the Raiders had been evicted from Oakland and were playing as nomads this year, it would fit them perfectly.

    Sorry.

    Nobody gets to blame acting like a spoiled 2-year old and an evil 2-year old at that on medical conditions. That's like blaming a bad acid trip on the acid when it's the bad character and fears of the person that was brought out by the acid. A more balanced person doesn't have the bad acid trip on the same acid. Brown's behavior isn't a behavior that is caused by a medical condition.

    Supposedly Brown threatened to punch Mayock in the face...punted a football and said "fine me for that"...I am sad Hard Knocks packed up for the season.

    If he is suspended it will happen today or tomorrow...the writing will be on the wall to void his contract. Then he can go to Baltimore...

    Why Baltimore? Not sure anyone would offer him much of a contract (at least guaranteed money) after this circus act.

    If you never took the acid you would not have had a bad acid trip, so yes, the bad trip is a direct result of taking the acid.

    Traumatic brain injuries and CTE can cause personality shifts. It is fairly common and well documented. Of course there have been an underlying personality disorder before Brown started playing football, but even so he has clearly spiraled since his early days in Pittsburgh.

    Teams will line up to sign him talent always trumps crazy....look at how many teams TO was with before getting the boot from the league.

    However he probably will not get 30 mil guaranteed. Baltimore was speculated as he is following them on Instagram now.

    It almost seems like the Raiders were wanting this to happen so they could get out of the deal. Threatening to punch the GM in the face? I'm sure there have been many players who have threatened to punch a team official and more than likely a coach. But how many were suspended for it? From what I heard if he's not on the roster for the first game, his contract is not guaranteed. No question he's been a PITA for the last couple of years but he's also arguably the best receiver in the game. If he did actually punch him I would understand the suspension. But there seems to have been several incidents leading up to this and I'm not there so it was probably justified. I wonder if New England would take a flyer on him. They dealt with Randy Moss although I don't think Moss was ever as big of a PITA as Brown.

    Reminds me of Chris Henry.

    As for Brown, there is no denying the personality change pre and post Burfict hit.
