Antonio Brown is late for his first official task as a Raider

You really can’t make this stuff up.

Plagued with reports of chronic tardiness in Pittsburgh, receiver Antonio Brown‘s career in Oakland has commenced with the player failing to show up on time for his introductory press conference.

Due to begin at 4:30 p.m. ET, Brown still hasn’t shown up.

He may have a perfectly legitimate excuse for being late. But the last thing that a guy with a reputation for always being late should do when traded to a new team is to be late for the first thing he does as a member of that new team.

  1. He doesn’t care. He got his money again after talking his way out of Pittsburgh. Raiders were stupid to sign him, and now they’re getting what they deserve.

  2. & it starts….ME ME ME…..ME ME ME…. I’m sure he’ll be a great locker room presence & leader…..when he shows up that is!!! LOL

  3. There it is, AB does not give a damn about anything but AB! Why would this surprise anyone? Gruden knew exactly what he was getting, the Raiders did not improve with that signing, only Mr Big Chest did!

    I predict he’ll punch Carr in the mouth before seasons end.

    HA! HA! Good one. I think you might be right.

  5. He is in a corner pouting because the Raiders signed Tyrell Williams. How dare they sign another receiver that Carr can throw too!!

  6. I’m here in Oakland. Rather than running with this take ask Gruden why he was late. Just saying!

  7. He was working out with his QB today but let the losers in the comment section say he got his money and is going to not care. People want to see you fail so bad

  8. Fun games for me are the two Steelers away games at Jets and Oakland this season and the Raiders at Jets game also to see the Brown and Bell interact with their old team and with themselves.

    The reason does not matter. You have an obligation and you keep it. The same people always have reasons (excuses) why things happen. IF you want to do something you will find a way. If you don’t then you will find an excuse. It is a lazy way of not accepting responsibility and a pattern with him.

  10. HAHAHA welcome to the bay area traffic—880 is always backed up…should have taken a helicopter

  11. You reap what you sow – not surprised by this. Expect more of it all season long until he gets suspended for his furniture throwing incident.

  12. Hilarious, but not surprising in today’s world someone wants to make this a story. How often do these things start “on time”? And if you must know – AB and his whole family was upstairs spending time with Mayock and Gruden. Nobody was late. You can question if having the media wait is wrong, but to put this on AB is merely click bait.

  13. This post was at 4:51 EST. Do you realize Oakland is 3 hors behind ? If he isnt there when i hit send since its now 7:30 EST then he is late. Jus saying

  14. Too bad this cretin doesn’t have the class of Larry Fitzgerald. With his talent, minus his lack of cladd

  15. Why is anyone surprised? It’s normal behavior for him, he marches to his own drum.
    It’s time for him to actually attempt to do the right thing, but he’s going to do the same as he did
    In Pittsburgh. He won’t change, good luck Raiders, you asked for it.🙃

  16. If anything, everyone knows if his instinctive tardiness so gruden should have told him to be there at a time that was much earlier than it was supposed to start!

    Quite honestly though, raider fans only care that he isn’t late across the middle for 18 weeks.

    Win lose or tie it will be fun to watch.

    No way raiders aren’t selected for that intrusive preseason show now- unless the NFL wants it to be raiders next year with the move.

    That might make the most sense, but yet Oak can make the playoffs and blow that idea up! Nice!

  17. His belief that he can do whatever he wants whenever he feels like it has just been given millions of dollars of validation by the Raiders.

    There’s virtually no incentive for him to care about anything or how anyone else feels about it from now on.

    We’ll see how much fun he has when the Steelers make the playoffs and the Raiders end up 3rd in the division this season.

  18. gruden needs to have the players beat his as* at the 1st team function and let him know his crap will not be tolerated.

  19. Not surprised… he’s a cancer..the money should have been spent keeping Crabtree and Cooper…why pursue a cry baby KRAPernick b*tch and let true winners go…WAKE UP GRUDEN
