So I guess the team is frustrated with AB continually getting penalties for his TD celebrations, I hope this doesnt start to become a huge issue and affect the teams play down the stretch

I read the article myself.

http://ftw.usatoday.com/2016/11/antonio-brown-steelers-celebrations

And it really sounds more like stating the obvious. I don't think it'll be a distraction down the stretch. It certainly shouldn't be and while I don't mind some of the celebrations, he has to know the position he's putting the team in on kickoff.

He needs to remain focused and let the celebrating happen on the sidelines.

Good, I wish there was a $100,000 fine to go with each flag.

I had about enough last week as well. It cost the team 7 points. Colts returned the short kickoff to midfield when it would have more than likely started at the 25.

If the NFL wants to end these stupid celebrations, put the penalty on the extra point. I am sure the kickers will love to have to kick 48 yards for 1 point.

If it hurts the team don't do it.

Just flip the ball to the ref, go to your sideline, and have your teammates mob you.

Stupid selfish play. At this point every time he does it I like him as a Steeler less and less. He is a great player and has produced for the team but doing the dumbest of shit to hurt the team is just flat out unacceptable.

Yeah, I am tired of seeing all of his celebration shit. The NFL has been methodically turning into the WWE within the last couple of decades.

Ben said the following in the story that Truck posted the link to ...

"... he just gets caught up in the moment sometimes."
_____________________

Uh, no. If Brown was flagged occasionally for celebrating after a big td, because he got caught up in the moment, I don't think it would be an issue. The problem is that he's drawing flags consistently for routine tds. It's not happening just after big moments ... it's happening almost every time he scores. It's selfish, and he needs to stop.

As for whether his teammates have had enough ... of course they have. It's one thing to draw a flag and hurt the team while trying to make a play. But Brown isnt drawing flags while trying to make plays ... he's hurting the team for trying to promote himself.

Tomlin should have Harrison "talk" to him.

Coach, did you order a code red?

Yeah as really Antonio could possibly cause his team to lose over his antics.

Tomlin apparently wanted to keep any comments to Brown in house at his weekly media conference on Tuesday - he apparently did not know what Ben had already disclosed

The coach said he had no discussion with his players about the touchdown celebration penalty charged to Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell in Indianapolis.

“You know, I didn’t. We already discussed it [previously] and discussed it wholly. I don’t think it requires additional discussion.”


http://www.post-gazette.com/sports/steelers/2016/11/29/Mike-Tomlin-Steelers-linebackers-playing-for-jobs-Bud-Dupree/stories/201611290164

But Ben has a radio show and continues to spout off there (e.g. - his garbled explanation as to whether or not he had a concussion after the Seattle game last season, his contention the Steelers injuries might be due to Tomlin running practices that are too tough). Assuming Ben is not just making it up, which he has done before.

I am tired of Brown's celebrations. But as long as we are talking about not doing anything that detracts from the team and just draws personal attention to yourself maybe Ben should dump the radio show - this is not the 1970s where players needed the $$ for gigs like that to make ends meet

They can just bring back Vick and start him. AB could be punished at home.

It's simple:

Act like you've been there before.

The articles that popped up here annoyed the p*ss out of me, because anyone who listens to Ben's radio show knows that's not what he said, and they twisted his words.

Do you think any football team is happy when they get penalized? Nope! This is controllable, but so are some dropped passes, holding, false starts, etc.

This was something blown way out of proportion.

That said, anyone notice the referees swarm AB Sunday after that TD? I sit right where he scored and got a good shot of it on camera. Pretty ridiculous.

You were closer than me...but I had a good view and watched to see what would happen after the TD....the closest official had his eyes glued on AB after the play...for a long time.

I'm an X's and O's football watcher and I understand wanting a little camera time after a TD but when a player goes a little to far for camera time and make other players jobs a little harder after the dance or add a player to the dance you have done separated yourself from the team.

Just catch TD passes there will be more then enough money to be made without making other teammates jobs harder.

True, but I still can't look past AJ Green punting a ball into the stands, or Vontaze Burfict doing a Forrest Gump run into the tunnel... WITHOUT FLAGS.

At least be consistent, because it DOES impact games.
