AB sued by his trainer for not paying (update - his chef is suing him now too)

How would the lawyer react if Brown didn't  pay him for HIS services?  Such a hypocritical profession.

I mean that’s being a lawyer.  You have to rid yourself of morals for money.

The Bills, despite knowing what a terrible and selfish, wanted AB despite all this talk of culture.  If AB was like “I can’t wait to play for the Bills and I think Allen is the next Big Ben and I’m excited to be here,” he would have gotten a giant contract.  If you believe anything else, you’re being delusional.  The same posters who laugh at him in the Raiders would his biggest defenders if he was on the Bills. 

 

and since I never wanted AB because he’s an idiot, I’m fine with not having him.  But kinda shows all the character and culture stuff goes out the window when you need to win.  

 

Again it was a contract thing.  With little guaranteed money you can cut him if he becomes a problem.

This dude is strange. Something tells me he's never really had someone put his ego in check. And if they've tried, he'd probably just take his ball and go home.

Actually lawyers operate using the laws that are in place, put there by the people that the citizens of this country voted for.  That is how it really works by the way.  We, the you and me’s of this country who rarely participate in actual democracy that allow bad politicians to take office and install the laws that the lawyers use.  Yes it’s the individual citizens fault that we have crap politicians in the first place.  

 

Go Bills!!!

Strange story...if this trainer wants to get paid, why doesn't he just steal a bottle of AB's champagne at the club?

 

Sheesh...

I mean I know it's easy to hate on AB right now but nobody knows the scenario accept for AB and the company who's allegedly suing him. Being a Steeler as well as a Bills fan there was never an issue with AB up until the last few seasons with the contract which was normal and then the feud with Big Ben. I think Bills fans hate him because he snubbed the Bills rather than who he is as a person because if he did this as a Bills player half of the fans would be saying "Oh the trainer is a pos liar" or something along those lines imo, it's how we roll.

WR's are divas.  But I think he started to go off the deep end when he did Dancing With The Stars.

That's a good point on the Dancing with the Stars thing. Probably fed into his ego. I get it, he can be arrogant because he can back it up but he's made it pretty clear over the last few seasons that he doesn't give a crap about anyone but himself. Teammates or not, dude doesn't care. I can't wait until we're at midseason and he starts going ballistic because he isn't getting enough targets. And having Carr is probably gonna be difficult for him. Word on Carr is that he clams up and shuts down anytime negative criticism is thrown his way. It's either gonna be great for them or it's gonna be a complete disaster.

I am so glad that the Bills don't have to deal with the drama that defines AB as a person.  For a guy that is an amazing talent, it is a sad commentary on him that people feel that the productivity that he brings to the team is not worth the trouble in dealing with him.  Pittsburgh was the clear winner in that divorce.

Yup.  

Giants in same boat unloading OBJ.  Having talent doesn't mean you're exempt from being an immature as$hole, and those two dudes prove the point.

Glad they thought better of making a deal for/with him.  Dodged that buillet.

I wonder how it feels for other players to share locker space with him? Some probably laugh at his dumb jokes, while others tolerate him because of his on field performance.

 What good is a bullet that explodes in or never leaves the chamber?

 

Gotta say, blistered feet is a new one.

Right--AB is a real dud.  Sweet takes, boys, LOL.

 

He's missed like 4 games in that last 6 seasons--racked up massive totals in catches and yards as well as Probowls every one of those years and 4 All Pros.

 

....but he "never leaves the chamber"...

Can't wait to see Mayock attempt to rationalize this if it happens.

Yeah, and if the Bills had signed him, you’d have been the first to say something snarky like “didn’t take him long to start dogging it with his new team...”

He was smart enough to work himself into a big contract while already being contractually obligated. He may be a diva but he out maneuvered the system and beat the system. Forcing his team to move on from him and putting himself in a position to get an extraordinary contract from his new team is not a demonstration of going off the deep end. A better description is: Crazy like a fox.

That's a separate issue and more agent-driven than anything else.

The agent was working on his behalf; and the player was acting on his own behalf. The player was following his own script for his own benefit. It worked out marvelously for him. That's not an example of being crazy.

So acting like a jerk is a sign of sanity?  OK.
