It’s easy to want to blame Antonio Brown for all of this.
After all, the star wide receiver performed in the middle of Sunday’s Buccaneers-Jets game in Jersey.
After refusing to re-enter the game, Brown took off his helmet, shoulder pads and uniform and practically retired instantly.
This is an open and closed case, right?
Most of the blame lies with Tampa Bay manager Bruce Arians.
It was the activator. He was an accomplice. He organized this mess.
Arians is to blame as much as Brown. He never held Brown accountable. He kept looking the other way as if the things Brown had done in the past weren’t going to happen to him.
When things exploded in his face, as had happened in Brown’s previous three stops in NFL America, Arians was surprised, as if he had been caught off guard.
There was never a question Self Brown would blow the place up, alone when would happen.
Bucs quarterback Tom Brady should also take the blame. He also didn’t care much for Brown, the person. All Brady cared about was Brown, the talented wide receiver.
Brady was so determined to win another Super Bowl – proving that success in New England was about him and not manager Bill Belichick – that he sold his soul and principles to get Brown, a man accused of sexual assault by a woman. and sexual misconduct by another on his team.
How else can you explain Brady who brought Brown to his home despite the erratic behavior that left a trail of alleged victims in his path?
If Brady really cared about Brown’s behavior, he would get him professional help, not a professional contract to play football.
It is clear that Brown needs some kind of help in his personal life, to improve his well-being.
You don’t need to be a doctor to know. It’s just an eye test, like spotting a great athlete on the pitch.
But more than anything else, Brown must be held accountable for his actions. Yes, hard love.
This is what the Aryans failed to provide when Brown needed it most.
Don’t forget, at first, Arians said Tampa Bay wasn’t interested in Brown after the New England Patriots cut ties with him.
Then, Brady wanted it and boom, it was a Buc. Somehow, Brown survived the injury and the season and helped Tampa Bay win the Super Bowl.
When no other team in the league wanted it, the Bucs re-signed it.
Then came the moment of truth. The Aryans said something very profound when the Bucs got out of balance when they first signed Brown. “He screwed up once, he left.”
Ariani proved himself a liar.
Brown got it all wrong, in epic proportions.
He lied about his vaccination status, got a fake vaccination card – a federal crime, if prosecuted.
Worse, Brown endangered the health of three-time cancer survivor Arians and 83-year-old offensive counselor Tom Moore.
This was the cue for Arians to stick to his word, holding Brown responsible for such a selfish act.
Instead, Arians was the selfish one, giving Brown a pass because his football team needed a good catcher after injuries ran out of his stash. And without a doubt, Brown is still that.
A scrub or a minor talent would be shown the door soon.
Not Brown, because his greatest facilitator was the head coach, the shooter.
Shamefully, Ariani’s first words at the post-game press conference were that Brown was no longer a Buc.
Isn’t it special?
Just to add this to the media on Monday, “I have no regrets. I only hope the best for him. It was very difficult. I love him. If he needs help, I hope he gets some. It is very difficult. Because I care about him “.
Aryans never cared about Brown, only about what Brown could do for him, improve his resume with a Super Bowl.
If he really cared, he’d get Brown’s help before throwing him another jersey and sending him back to the football field.
Nobody should be shocked by what happened here. It happened with the Steelers. The Marauders. The patriots. The fascination of using this man’s talent to help win football matches is too great.
It’s harder to worry about someone’s well-being.
Too bad for the Aryans. He too is to blame.
