Earlier today, Antonio Brown tweeted a thank you to Steelers fans and implied he was leaving the team, despite being under contract and the Steelers having made no progress in trade talks. Later, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that AB had officially requested a trade.
Those who are fans of the other 31 NFL franchises immediately began to tweet at AB and beg him to come to their team (which again, is not his decision), while Steelers fans simply can’t wait to ship out a future Hall of Famer for probably a 6th round pick.
Let’s check in on Steelers Nation.
Get ready to watch people burn things that they spent money on! That’ll show AB! (The use of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” is a tad dramatic.)
Warning: The following video contains profanity and several inaccuracies.
Fans without Antonio Brown jerseys began to feel left out…
I know there are plenty of reasons why Steelers fans are upset with and/or hating on AB, but I couldn’t help but think of this Seinfeld bit as I watched people burn jerseys.
When things are down in Steelers nation, you can always count on the lowest of the low being racist AF. See the response below from @whattaschmuck
I do appreciate this reference to college football’s transfer portal…I just like the term “transfer portal”
I appreciate Jeff’s tweet–straightforward and concise
Who is Cirdell Stewart and when did he play for the Steelers?
The first hashtag on this one…
I’m with Cliff.
YESSS! A Steelers fan who recognizes how dumb it is to burn your own property!
Going to end this one on a high note. Tune in tomorrow for installment #142 of the epic saga “Antonio Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers”!
