    Hey does anyone remember when Fat Ben actually raped - beyond any reasonable doubt - at least two women, got suspended, and still returned in the same season, making the SB in 2010/11?

    Here’s what’s really happening: the league was already furious with Brown’s antics with the Steelers (their little sweethearts) and especially with the Raiders, since he set a really bad precedent in behaving like a turd to get released...basically conning the team out of money. The league is lumping everything together as a special brand of punishment for Brown, who in missing an entire season will be an example for other players who want to go rogue. We’ve seen players beat up and rape women and get 4-6 games. The Patriots gladly took on the Raiders financial disaster by displacing the salary lost from Oakland and instead inserting themselves as the team on the hook, and it will be this contract that will be the hardest to void.

    If Brown was suspected of rape, that’s a six game suspension, but he’s, in a sneaky way, suspended for the entire season. All it took was a very naive owner doing what he can for the image of the league (the same one that fabricated a cheating controversy against the greatest player ever, who has built Kraft’s entire reputation.) Releasing Brown was just so incredibly pointless and stupid. He could have been sitting there in the exempt list this whole time after the public has simmered down and realized the league was stalling and needed to act; he would have been an active player with rights and representation from the NFLPA. Kraft stabbed him with Goodell’s knife. What a *****. Jonathan needs to wrestle the team away from the senile prune.

    I don’t care how many championships Belichick and Brady win; Kraft is still foolish and a complete puppet of the NFL, involved in everything from denying CTE to pushing for a 17 game schedule. He’s not someone you need to respect or like to root for the team.

    31 other teams, even the crappy and mediocre ones, all seem to agree that they do not want AB on their team..

    It seems time to move on..

    I'm not sure what's up with many of these fans. It almost feels like they have grown bored with the usual Patriot path to success and now want the team to complete a Super Bowl run on Ultra Hard Mode. Rather than stick to solid contributors and occasional misunderstood superstars, now we need to rehabilitate the insane divas and go undefeated. Only then will things be interesting enough for those growing unimpressed by the Patriots "merely" winning it all through grit and cunning.

    I'm not sure. I do think there are a number of fans who glorify 2007 more than they should. They think AB gave them that kind of potential. Once he was cut, the toy was taken away and now they are throwing a tantrum.

    I think many of us who want AB back are Tired of the "Brady is washed up" narrative. We know that if he had real bonafide weapons that talking point will instantly be put to rest. Phillip Rivers is sucking with keenan Allen, Mike Willams, Melvin Gordon, Hunter Henry and a offensive line that DOESN'T have Marshall Newhouse so there is no excuse, phillip rivers is WASHED. On the other hand, Brady has a struggling OL, no tight end that defenses respect, a first round WR that hasn't yet got the green light, and a starting RB (Michel) that is a tell for defenses that we are running 95% of the time when hes in the game. Imagine what brady would be doing right now if he still had AB. I truly believe Brady would be in the MVP discussion and that certainly wouldnt be a "washed up" trajectory.

    Do you really think AB would silence the, "Brady is washed up" crowd?

    Then the mindless, lazy, hot-take commentary becomes, "Well, Tom has all these weapons that are making it easy for him.".

    My advice...stop listening to Max Kellerman and the rest of those uninformed, uneducated, lazy-ass hot-take, sound-bite, say-anything-for-ratings-and-attention idiots.

    Brady wants AB on the team.

    That’s all that needs to be said.

    Why do you even care about it? Caring about it is what enables the mediot losers to exist in the first place.

    Ignore the noise.

    You’re right. I’m sure AB can get a job as a trainer at TB12.

    He may need to review their sexual harassment and appropriate use of company electronics policy first.

    Yeah I’m sure Tom Brady wants Antonio Brown to be a trainer at TB12, not on the team catching passes. Good one.

    Probably not, but the grumpy old men trying to tell everyone how we should feel about it is getting old.

    In case you’re lost, this is an Antonio Brown thread.

    If you don’t like speculation about him and a return, don’t enter the thread or post in it.

    Pretty simple right?

    I dont care that much about the mediots as much as im frustrated that Brady's full potential at 42 wont be revealed this year.The older a qb gets the more you need to fortify the offense around him. I believe this is why brady reportedy was pissed about letting AB go. He doesnt have time to teach the nuances of what he expects to UDFA wide recievers and a first round rookie. Add to that no threat at TE and sloppy play on the OL and you have a recipe for Brady's frustration. Not saying we wont win the SB because we will IMO but if Brady was candid i believe he'd tell you he doesnt like being carried by the defense right now.
