                    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.
