People were legitimately saying that the Patriots should be investigated for tampering.
Exactly. And despite there not being any impropriety on the Pats part. So to say this is all Brown just being a moron is a gross oversimplification. This is Brown being a moron AND an agenda driven event.
I wonder what would happen if Brown signed with media favourite Aaron Rodgers and came out with a scathing statement about the Pats organization
He’s an idiot and I don’t feel bad for him. Yes, my mind is made up.
Even if he’s innocent on the charges, that doesn’t change the fact that I think people should be expected to act like reasonable and decent human beings. He doesn’t do that for me. And I’m hardly being told to feel that way. There’s plenty there to see for anyone who wants to look at this with an unbiased eye.
Now the same things would happen because it's become a big story. But had he signed with Seattle or Green Bay after Oakland, I doubt it would have ended like it did here in New England. The woman would have filed her suit and the league would have dealt with it accordingly. I doubt the guy from SI would have dug nearly as hard as he did because he's been writing anti Patriots stuff for years. The hate of all things Patriots made it that much sweeter for him to uncover, IMO.
But there aren't any charges. Just a civil law suit. People keep saying charges, which is what should have happened if he did what the woman claims, but she didn't file criminal charges. She went for the money, which makes her claim a touch dubious.
As for being a good person or decent human being, most professional athletes are not that at all. They're flawed individuals, just like the rest of society.
I also wonder if the reporter writing this story so it could be litigated in the court of public opinion hurt the situation of Browns accuser. Now Brown is unemployed with no gueranteed money to pay her with. I doubt the reporter had her best interests in mind rather he was thinking only of himself and used her to go after the Patriots. Probably better for all parties that a civil case like this was not made public. Does this reporter report on all NFL civil cases?
He writes for SI and the MMQB part of that magazine/website. Albert Breer (works with him) was on T&R yesterday saying how that Klemko had 4 more stories to run with from other accusers already lined up and was still digging. It will be interesting to see how they play out now that the Pats cut him and he's not on a team. But yeah, the original accuser has to be concerned now that he doesn't have any income.
Yes, I agree all people are flawed.
In my book, that is a laughably light word to use when referencing AB.
Conversation is going nowhere. Let’s agree to disagree.
Sure, not even a worry. You and I aren't really on different sides of this though. I agree he's a dirt bag and wish he hadn't been brought in to start with. But I also think a big part of the reason people started digging so hard was due to him coming here coupled with their intense dislike of the Pats. It's simply another factor. Is it the main reason? No, that's Brown doing the stuff he does, obviously.
Think of it this way. Had Brown signed with Seattle or KC so fast instead of NE, what would the national reaction had been? It surely wouldn't have been that either of those teams colluded with him to orchestrate his way out of Oakland. That I'm positive of.
Approximately 20% of the population has an IQ below 88 which would translate to about 60-70 M Americans
I’m sure these ‘low IQ’ individuals think the Patriots should be investigated and cheated to 6 SB
Things make much more sense and easier to understand when you realize not everyone can be stable geniuses
Yeah, I don’t know. I enjoy watching the Patriots play and win. He was considered an asshole before coming here and is more now.
The Patriots are the Yankees of football (in terms of winning) so of course the media writes negative stories. It feeds their audience. This is capitalism after all. In the case of a guy potentially being a rapist, however, I don’t think everyone is treating him much differently than they would with any other team. AB is plenty of a story by himself and having issues with his behavior is an obvious reaction regardless of team. But yes, of course the haters will use that against the Patriots. No shit.
he's probably upset deep down Brown was released bc he like many other reporters were using this story to get airtime for themselves. Now we can get back to ignoring dan
Sounds like my aunt but she is like 70 something and a weirdo...............
Greg Hardy is on the UFC card in Boston, I get to boo the shit out him. P stoked. Hopefully he gets dusted.
Boo away, if I was there I’d join you. But I don’t think that second thing is happening
Brown trolling kraft on is Twitter. Fantastic
Wait now Brown is all of a sudden a bad guy?
when did I say he wasn’t?
And yeah, like I’ve said, I’d say after the last series of texts it’s tough to feel bad for him. Those were malicious. He’s a bad dude.
With White out today, I really hope that they include Sony in the passing game. The offense will be much better if there's a threat to pass when he's out there.
My DraftKings lineup hopes so
