    Anyone who says he wasn’t trying to intimidate her is an idiot. He addresses her directly in the first text and in the third one says that she’s in the text. He knew damn well he added her into that group. This wasn’t a mistake. He was just stupid enough to think he could get away with it and she would back down.

    It’s honestly some of the dumbest **** I have never seen. All this woman wanted was $700 for some work she did and he was too cheap to pay and now look where it has gotten him. Even after that story was release most people didn’t care or even believed her and he just had to make it worse on himself by being a ****ing moron and texting her and his goons that he was going to be looking into her and investigating her.

    Then posting a pic of her kids with one of his guys replying they are going to call around to find information on her. She doesn’t know these people like that and she doesn’t know what they might be capable of.

    I’m glad he’s gone. He was a headache from the moment he got here. I trust the team and I'm glad they pulled the cord as soon as they did. His distraction was not going to go away because He is incapable of shutting the **** up, keeping his nose clean and just playing football.

    This is really irrelevant. There was no reason he needed to send pics of her children. If he wanted to post a photo of her, fine. Wtf he is sending pics of her kids to his group while telling them to investigate her? While the woman is in the group? They didn’t know her or her instagram to have access to that information and he freely provided it for them for his ‘investigation’. Do they need to know what the kids look like to look into her background? Stop trying to rationalize his ********.

    I don’t know why people keep coming back to this. So what ? He didn’t get charged and he is still free.

    The Patriots aren’t obliged to employ every non-criminal in the country. Just like AB is free to go about his life, the Patriots are free to run their business as they see fit within the rules established by the league.

    “Innocent people” can be trouble. AB became too much trouble a long time ago.

    Not anytime soon. This may be it for him. Being cut by the Pats like he was is as good as getting the Kaepernick kiss. You also read it here first.
    His summer of self destruction has garnered a lot of disdain for him but he is not self aware to understand his situation.

    Tangentially related but there was a great story about Calvin Johnson yesterday and he is basically the polar opposite of Antonio Brown. Love that guy, wish he'd come back, he ain't coming back.

    I don't understand why some people are denigrating BB on this. When they signed him, all they (or really anyone else) knew was that AB was crazy. Uber-talented but crazy. Ok, crazy you can probably live with. Fans of other teams in their anger that the Pats got much better even accused BB of tampering - "It's not fair!". Pundits said it would be a reasonable gamble for NE because BB won't stand for that crap and if AB does stuff, BB will just cut him. It was only AFTER they signed him that the rape allegation came out. BB probably wanted to let that process play out a little. It was only after AB started doing stuff as a Patriot that they cut him. Just like people said he (BB) would.

    So they took a chance, it didn't pay off, and they cut him quickly (after just 11 days). The Pats move on, a little poorer in cash, but otherwise, not a big deal. What, exactly, did BB do wrong here?

    How will Sportstalk "gin up" hysteria and keep the "fans" calling so they can hang up o them.. here is an idea start some crap about how "BB is not a nice person" Ted Johnson says so.. Oops they already started that BS..

    Echo Auto is a great addition to that line, and a great diversion from Sports Talk controversies..

    FWIW #12 had nothing to do with the decision to acquire or dump AB, that has never been Brady's role.. I suspect that Kraft was a driving force on this matter, enough is enough.

    Yep, it's not really a matter of Innocent vs Guilty here: Bill I'm pretty sure had told him upon the release of the civil suit charges - if not upon his very signing - to cut out the stupid anti-social media bullsh!t until everything calmed down, but Clowntonio disobeyed him...and it is for that reason - and that reason Alone - why he is no longer a WR for the NEP...don't think Bill really cares about the "pictures of her children" angle...you just don't say one thing to him and then do something else...if you do, you're gone...simple as that.

    For all the posters that hated AB, think he is a POS, and are happy he got released, you were right, now let it go so we can put this sordid affair and multiple threads to rest. Let's move on to football, the OL, lack of running game, Devlin being out, etc.

    For one thing, we can't now and couldn't then afford to be "a little poorer in cash" as in precious salary cap space...that space needed to be saved for somebody who could've Actually helped us, such as Trent Williams, a professional Backup Center, and whichever TE might be on the block before the trade deadline.

    So No it isn't "not a big deal"...it's a very big deal, possibly a season-ending one if we can't afford help if/when it becomes available.

    It’s about football. If you’re headed to the exempt list and then likely suspension for 6-8 games at the very least, you’re of no use to the Patriots. Time to move on.

    That can be said about any signing. When BB made the move, nobody (well, AB did) knew about the rape issue. He just seemed like a crazy dude that they could get for a modest salary and without trading away anything.

    Worth the risk. Definitely a risk as yes, they lose some cap space. And stop with the Trent Williams stuff...has there been ANY indication that they have had ANY shot at acquiring him?

    The texts were far more than “ stupid” they were intended to intimidate, and are borderline criminal. As I said in another post he’s a malignant narcissist, he believes the world rotates around him, he has no conscience and absolutely no sense of personal responsibility. He will always blame others and he’s incapable of thinking critically because that would puncture his image of himself. Good riddance.
