Antonio Brown on suspension: A lot of drama you guys create

Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown returned from a three-game suspension for giving the team a fake COVID-19 vaccination card on Sunday and had 10 catches in a 32-6 rout of the Panthers.

After the game, Brown took the podium to meet with the media and predictably was asked about the suspension. Brown initially said “next question” in reference to being asked about his ban and then said a bit more once the questions kept coming.

“I don’t want to talk about that,” Brown said, via Greg Auman of TheAthletic.com. “You guys are all drama. It’s all about football. We’re going to talk about Carolina or I don’t want to talk to you. . . . It’s a lot of drama you guys create, a lot of drama people create who want stuff from me. That’s a part of life, a part of being in the position. I can’t control what people want from me, what people write about me.”

There wouldn’t have been any drama had Brown been truthful about his vaccination status, but drama and Brown have gone hand in hand for years regardless of where he plays and what he does. As long as he keeps producing like he did on Sunday, the Bucs won’t mind it either.

  1. People who don’t want to make statements don’t make statements about not making statements.

  2. Now imagine playing for the Cowboys. Every practice. Every game. Everytime you step out in public. Every sports tv show. Everybody is talking about you. What you did, or didn’t, do. You are always the top headline. Everybody is looking to create the drama, just because America’s team.

  3. Hey AB, YOU create a lot more than anyone else. It wasn’t “you guys” that didn’t pay people that YOU hired.

  4. The media needs to understand that most of the country is finished with the COVID fear-mongering.

  5. Well without drama and creating some of the drama PFT and other media outlets would not be the business entities they are. Yes that’s an opinion now show that adverse opinion! That’s what makes this country different. We can all express opinions in this democracy.

    The media needs to understand that most of the country is finished with the COVID fear-mongering.

     

    Scary part is how many ppl downvoted ur comment. Just shows how screwed we r as a country, that at least half the population is still terrified of covid and letting it run their lives.

  7. Well, he’s right. The media loves drama. They’d have you believe Omicron is the the worse variant yet, despite the opposite being true.

  8. Wow. Talk about a guy with zero self reflection. A drama queen blaming everyone but himself.

    Color me ‘not shocked’.

    Zero accountability for himself. What an embarrassment for Arians.

  9. Over 800,000 Americans had their lives ruined by COVID…THey’re’ dead. And millions of friends and family members are grieving.

    COVID is NOT the flu. It’s deadly. And if you live, there’s a 10% chance taht you will get long COVID……which can result in damaged organs.

  10. He “can’t control what people want from him”? Yes,he can. People want him to stop being an idiot and behave like an adult. Only Brown can control that. He acts like he’s so put out when asked about the elephant in the room…HIS bad behavior.

  11. To all the brave triple vaxed ppl on this site, who mask everywhere they go, clearly the only reason u guys have survived a virus which has a 99.7 survival rate pre vaxes, is due to all the brave sacrifices you’ve made. U guys r the best.

  12. How many ppl in this comment section have a fauci bobblehead? Id love to get one hes my hero

  13. TB’s media team clearly did not speak with him before his press availability. That was a mistake. You can’t let this guy think on his own. We aren’t talking Socrates here.

  14. Any decent team/coach would have cut him when it happened. They def would’ve cut him today after his arrogance and ignorance shown through. Tom Brady however runs the show there, and has shown his ability to be the greatest and the epitome of poor sportsmanship when he loses. Tom’s team and his way. Abs good ol karma will ensure no super bowl for the sore loser and his pet AB.

    LOL “It’s deadly” 0.02 of 1.0% deadly or another way of saying is 99.8% of people that get covid, LIVE! Wake up you’ve been played……. CDC #’s by the way.

    Kid, you’re a rube Millennial who nevet went to college.

    Fauci’s IQ is like 155 and yours is 90.

    Who do you think rational people will take advice from? And, the sad part is, the facts, reality and science of what a virus is, is not hard to comprehend. But, it is for you.

  17. See….This guy, Arians being such a lying snake re: “this is Browns last chance” garbage, and Brady getting his boxers in a bunch vs the Saints, is why so many NFL fans hates this team. It’s not a matter of “haters gonna hate” This team is hated for genuine reasons

  18. Media doesn’t make the news, they report it. Biased in what they choose to report and how,but it’s your actions,A.B.

  19. This isn’t about vaccinated status its about credibility and character, brown has neither. Which makes me question the priorities of the head coach and organization as a whole.

  20. If he said that with a straight face, he has more talent than I thought. He could either have a career in Hollywood playing Pinocchio, or a career in politics in post-truth America.

  21. I love the way Brown sits up at the podium acting all entitled. The only reason he’s there is because Goodell and Arians have no backbone. Who has gotten away with more than this clown?

  22. A normal human would have lost their job and more than
    likely been charged with felony fraud for a fake vaccine card…just saying.
