Ex-Raider Antonio Brown had a little tantrum today on Twitter that included comments made towards Ben Roethlisberger, the NFL, and XFL. In his tweets, Brown calls Ben Roethlisberger a ‘loser' and makes some harsh comments at the NFL and XFL. Antonio Brown points out the NFL’s inconsistencies when it comes to negative allegations made against players.
The pro-bowl wide receiver thinks the NFL isn’t treating players fairly when it comes to handling allegations, and he made his frustration well-known on Twitter this morning.
This comes just one week after his public apology via Instagram, where he said he was sorry for his recent comments on social media.
Seems like this new Twitter rant is just another tale in the Brown saga.
He hasn’t played since week two of the NFL season and has been cut from both the Raiders and Patriots this season alone. Brown is desperately looking for his next gig in the NFL, but these tweets may not be helping his cause.
As it’s pretty evident that Brown is looking for a new job, Twitter urged him to take his shot at the XFL. Brown wanted no part of it.
In a later tweet, Antonio said that the XFL ”run the media they set me up clowns."
Brown also attacked Ben Roethlisberger in his comments on Wednesday, calling him a ‘loser’ and saying that Ben was nothing until Brown came to the Steelers.
During his rant, Brown also brought up former Pittsburgh Steelers teammate, Anthony Chickillo, who has a similar allegation made against him.
Brown points out how the NFL is handling this case much differently than his. Chickillo was recently suspended for two games and was placed on the Commissioner's Exempt List, but was able to rejoin the team after prosecutors decide to drop the case.
For now, Chickillo is on the playing field while the NFL is still investigating.
This didn’t make Antonio Brown too happy.
So who knows the true motive of Brown at this point in time. All we know is that this adds another chapter to the Antonio Brown drama that never seems to end.
