Yawn... Hey clevelander, how are things going in Believeland? lol!!!!!!!! Big Ben should have been brought up on rape charges again after what he has done to the Browns all these years.

 

Can't shake those damn Yankees that's for sure. So far so good minus Kyrie Irving on the hardwood. I don't sweat the doo-doo Browns. They are what they are.

If anything. Brown should be held to a higher standard as a leader of the team. But wait....this is the Steelers that has double standards. 

 

 

I can understand that philosophy however that philosophy rarely exists in reality, take a look at any  elected leader.

Bell has been suspended twice too, obviously Bryant isnt an All-Pro like Bell or AB but Tomlin shouldnt give any players a pass, even the best ones. Belichick sure wouldnt.

 

That's what separates pretenders (Tomlin) from the true greats (BB).

All you Bryant apologists kill me.  The dude is a straight up immature a**clown who deserves to be treated exactly the way the Steelers are treating him.

 

He missed a whole season because he couldn't stay away from the weed and the Steelers stood by him then.  Now he's on a winning team this season with Championship aspirations, but he's going out in public and trashing his teammates and disrespecting the franchise to try and force their hand to get what he wants.

 

If he's not happy and wants to be traded, be a man and talk to the coach/GM behind closed doors instead of causing a huge distraction, bitching on social media and skipping meetings like a child.

 

All of you hopeful apologetic owners, just drop this punk from your rosters instead of waiting for some trade that is never gonna come.  Other teams don't want this cancer in their locker room, and Pitt doesn't want to be held ransom by him. 

 

You will feel much better not having this child on your team.

Steelers seem petty AF. Don't want to play him, but also don't want him to go play anywhere else, thus no trade or release. Next best thing? Inactive

 

Why is it petty? I doubt they've gotten any great offers for Bryant. Why should they trade him away for a 7th round pick just to make him happy and give him a fresh start. His salary is cheap so they can just deactivate him and figure it out later. He totally brought on everything that is happening to him with his antics.

Difference is AB shows up for work and was never suspended for violating drug policy which hurt the team

I think that ABC also waited until he was a perennial Pro Bowler before he started becoming a diva. MB needs to be a lot more humble. Maybe this will help him with his problem.

Bell has never attacked his team on social media, even when he wasnt happy about his contract negotiations he never attacked his team. Martavis attacks his team publicly.  martavis should know better than most what the repercussions would have been becuase he is on the team and privy to how they handle things, it is what it is so the outrage is a bit hyperbolic

Why should they bow down to this headcase. Dude has been suspended twice (year long). Throws Coates and Schuster-smith under the bus, fails to report monday? They stood by this moron and this is how he repays them? Petty af? why? because he is not scoring any fantasy points for you? As a Steeler fan, i hope he gets it together.

 

I'm not sure how making a decision to trade the player would equate to "bowing down to this headcase". It would benefit both parties. A WR complaining about not getting the ball is nothing new; not sure why people still demonstrate outrage when a WR speaks up about not being involved.

There aren't many professional athletes that you will find that are humble. Very few and far between. Then amongst WRs, even fewer. Those guys all think they are the greatest and best. Goes with the job description.

Bell did attack his team by demanding the team pay him $17 million and then holding out during the preseason because he was being a diva about his contract. 

 

This is no different. MB is on a rookie contract. He is playing for his next contract which could be the only big one he gets. The Steelers ******** around with his usage is directly tied to how he is going to be paid when he is up for a new contract. You think teams are going to pay him extra because he is a nice guy and didn't complain when the Steelers screwed around with him during the 2017 season and ignored him? You don't get paid for how nice your personality is. You get paid based on your production.

No, it is different. MB is posting inflammatory stuff on social media about teammates. That's a lot worse than just demanding more money and holding out. Teammates probably won't hold it against you for holding out to try to get paid. They will hold it against you when you attack them on social media. I'm sure the whole locker room has turned on him at this point.

Dude is an immature crybaby.  Going to be hard to recover from this in Pittsburgh.  Even if he were available for trade, why would any team want this locker room cancer?

Hard to recover from what? He hasn't been hardly on the field at all for us. Now losing bell might be harder to patch unless Connor can take over, but still losing bryant is not really hurting anything

He meant it's going to be hard for Bryant to recover from this, career-wise. Pittsburgh will be fine with out him.

 

I think Bryant can be fine too but he needs a major attitude adjustment, next time he gets a chance.
