Feel like Will made a pretty solid argument here. Just let Brown wear his helmet. If he gets a concussion, that's on him.

No, he's putting responsibility back onto Antonio Brown since Brown wants to make an issue out of the helmet. Brown knows his helmet isn't up to current regulation. The NFL has let him know and this would be used to absolve themselves when Brown's CTE symptoms get worse.

Why should he be forced to wear a new helmet when it only affects him, it's his safety so it should be his choice.

AB is being selfish, childish & petty? Well... That's nothing new. Why does this surprise anyone? He's been nothing but trouble every since he came into the NFL. What good is being that talented if he's just going to act like an entitled little DIVA??? The NFL should BAN HIM & take away this years & last years pay because he hasn't done anything but be DIFFICULT. I'm so over listening to sports analysts give this douchebag more attention than he deserves smh. 🖕🏽 AB. 👎🏾👎🏾

Heck no they shouldn't allow him to sign a waiver and continue to play. What kind of message is that going to send? Our players can act like 5 year old children and we're just going to bend and give them their way? The NFL has already had enough problems when it comes to players getting away with actions on and off the field that they should not be. Give me Antonio Brown a very very mild dose of how the real world actually works. Nobody else in the world gets to go into their workplace and act like this and expect to have your will given into or even have a job the next day. This whole situation is a really good example of why people don't give a rat's ass about the players scolding us and lecturing us on societal issues. Nobody else except these millionaire athletes has the ability to behave like this and continue to be employed.

You are too kind calling him petty and childish. To me he is a turd in the grass. Nice to walk on grass till you step on a turd like AB. My poor raiders have to walk on homefield turf with a Brown turd amongst them. GTFO of football you turd. Now he claims the NFL being prejudice .. WTF is wrong with you??? You POS Brown turd!!!! I actually took his side against big ben but now im against . The game will move on without your self centered punk ass biotch so retire already..nobody likes a turd!!!

EYEZ ON THE PRIZE BOUND4GLORY nah, there’s a million of NFL players out there and none of them are as special as Joe Montana, Troy Aikman, Dan Marino, John Elway, Peyton Manning or Tom Brady, or even Eli Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger.

As the saying goes "Give them an inch, they will take a mile." He pulled that spoiled child syndrome in Pittsburgh now he wants to challenge the NFL. I guess he didn't understand what they did to Kaepernick.

Antonio brown never said he’ll retire. This is the problem with the media. Really just making shit up for attention and false information. And just because it sounds like something he’ll say in his situation dosent mean he said it. 🤦‍♂️

Stephen A can't tell someone how they would react hypothetically. Dude made i point you wanna be a dumb ass sign a waiver. More or less they cover themselves legally and that's all they care about.

I agree with Stephen A. First off... AB is not being mature on how he handled this helmet situation (before arbitrator ‘s decision I mean) and really isn’t being a good role model. Secondly, with what studies have proven about concussion and effects of CTE, the league is making sure to place plAyer health & safety as a huge priority. Why can’t AB see that? Think of it like seatbelts. If you’re caught on the road driving or riding as a passenger without your seatbelt, PO can hand you a citation. Why do and should we wear a seatbelt? For our safety! While wearing a seatbelt and being involved in a car accident doesn’t always guarantee you’ll not get hurt, it sure beats the odds of not wearing one and flying out of your vehicle. Survival rate is better when you’re buckled in. Same with helmets. If better technology and equipment exist to protect players’ “coconuts” then what’s with the public outcry? 🤦🏻‍♀️
