    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.

      Who cares what helmet he uses? Have him sign something and if he gets hurt... Oh well

                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!!!
