    Antonio Brown apologizes for furniture throwing incident, says charity donations made in settlement

    A lawsuit against Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown over furniture throwing from a balcony was reportedly settled back in April. Brown posted a statement to his Twitter account Monday night apologizing for the “incident” and said an undisclosed amount had been donated to charity as a part of the settlement.

    “The legal dispute between Ophir Sternberg and me has been resolved, with a confidential sum of funds being donated to charity,” Brown wrote. “I am sorry that an incident occurred. I apologize for any statements we made in court filings or otherwise to Mr. Sternberg and family. I with Mr. Sternberg my best with regard to future endeavors and through this settlement, seek to make amends with Mr. Sternberg and family.”

    Sternberg, a founding partner and CEO of Lionheart Capital, LLC, claimed that his 22-month old son was nearly struck by airborne furniture being throw out of an upscale condo complex in Miami. The furniture in question included an ottoman and large vases.

    Brown’s side of the case argued that the suit was a “shakedown attempt” and “nothing more than a shameful attempt by a struggling real estate developer to exploit his minor child.”

    Those comments would appear to be some of the statements Brown was apologizing for in his statement Monday night.

    To what extent the NFL is reviewing the case and a separate claim by the owner of the complex for damaged property remains unclear. The league had said they are monitoring the lawsuits but had not commented on the settlement of the case between Brown and Sternberg.
    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    AB is very fortunate that ottoman didn't kill that kid, or hurt someone else. If it had, Brown might be incarcerated right now rather than living the high life and making YouTube videos.

    First Call: Antonio Brown mad at Madden video game

    TIM BENZ | Monday, July 15, 2019

    A.B. on brand

    This is right from the Mr. Big Chest playbook.

    Antonio Brown is mad that he didn’t get a coveted “99 rating” in the “Madden NFL 20” video game.

    And he’s letting us know. Only four players got the best rating possible in the game, and Brown — last year’s cover guy for the game — is not one of them.

    Receiver DeAndre Hopkins of the Texans is the only offensive player to be rated as elite. Bobby Wagner, Aaron Donald and Khalil Mack got 99s on defense.

    I haven’t seen what A.B. got as a rating yet. But it could be a 98. Regardless, he’s upset. He’s also mad that he allegedly didn’t get paid everything he was supposed to get paid for being on the cover last year.

    The former Steeler tweeted, “Madden shorted me on my check for the Madden 19 cover now they short my ratings.”

    Maybe Brown didn’t know taxes sometimes get taken out of those checks. Just like he didn’t know he was supposed to show up for the Week 17 game against the Bengals last year.

    Or that the speed limit on McKnight Road is under 100 mph.

    New trio

    Back when Brown and running back Le’Veon Bell were still in Pittsburgh, many in NFL circles thought that the Steelers had the best offensive skill position trio in football.

    Now that those two are playing elsewhere, the Steelers no longer hold that designation, even though quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is still in Black and Gold.

    That said, NFL.com likes how Bell and Brown have been replaced. The league website rates Roethlisberger, James Conner, and JuJu Smith-Schuster as the 11th-best grouping in the NFL when it comes to quarterback-pass catcher-running back combinations.

    Sam Darnold, Robby Anderson, and Bell have the Jets rated 21st. Brown, Derek Carr, and rookie running back Josh Jacobs are 13th in Oakland.

    The Saints threesome of Drew Brees, Michael Thomas, and Alvin Kamara are ranked first.

    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    Boy.. if that upsets him, he’s going to be a mental case by season’s end.
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    He was a mental case by the end of last season, so he starting at a deficit this season.
