Two weeks!  It's been two freakin' weeks since Antonio Brown signed with the New England Patriots and now it's over.  Bill Belichick, the man with the King Midas touch couldn't get gold out of this situation.  The craziest part about all of this is that I'm not even a sports fan and I can see a disaster coming toward AB called karma from 1,000 miles away.

Shannon Sharpe on the sports show UNDISPUTED put it best when he said "there hasn't been any repercussions for AB's antics."  He breaks a rule, gets more money and a slap on the wrist.  Doesn't show up or fullfill his obligations, so what, I got F-U money so F-U, I'll show up when I want to show up, seems to be his take on things.  

And the results?  

  • AB could possibly end up on the commissioners exempt list
  • Dropped by NIKE
  • Dropped by Helmut company
  • Lawsuits piling up
  • No checks coming in and no team to play on

 

I really feel for this guy, not because he is different from everyone else, but becuase he is exactly like everyon else, human.  We all make mistakes but it appears that he lost touch with what got him to the place that allowed him to lose deals with Mega companies like Nike.  That hard work, displaying a attitude of gratitude, etc.  I hope he gets help and that everyone who was affected by AB to find peace with their lives and be made whole again.

You can learn from anything and anyone, even if it's what NOT to do.  Thanks for the lesson AB.enlightened
