Yeah but his stay in Golden State was cut a little short,I guess we'll have see what happens.

Threatening upper management never seemed like a good way to start a new job.
The report  
weaverpsu : 9/5/2019 2:03 pm : link
says AB and Maylock got into an argument in front of the team. Suspension imminent.
Just read the ESPN report  
weaverpsu : 9/5/2019 2:07 pm : link
It says he didn't stretch with team, took plays off during individuals, and fired the ball into the fence after a catch from Carr. That incident can be seen on twitter apparently.

"When your own team want to hate but there's no stopping me now devil is a lie. Everyone got to pay this year so we clear"

Translation:

When your own team want to hate - self explanatory

but there's no stopping me now - again, self explanatory meaning "I'm gonna do me."

devil is a lie - here is where homeboy is waaaay off base. 5% Muslims (i.e., Farrakhan) believe that the Caucasian man is an inferior, grafted version of the true and original Asiatic black man, sole controller of the universe.

The 'devil' comment comes from the belief that the white man is a blond haired, blue eyed 'devil'. Now most black people aren't 5% Muslims, but some do call whitey 'devil'.

Black folk like to say, "You a lie" meaning you're a liar

Devil is a lie = whitey lies/white people are liars

Everyone got to pay this year so we clear - subject to personal interpretation. I think he is saying that I'm gonna make you bitches (Raider front office) suffer and pay me.




huh? you wouldn't be straining to make a dubious political point (and i am being kind).

get outta here with your Farrakhan, muslim, whitey nonsense..



That is exactly what he is saying. Don't shoot the messenger....


“Black Folk” “Whitey” “Farrakhan” ... Give me a fucking break. That post says more about how you think, forget what AB was trying to say.

This might be the dumbest thing I have ever seen on this site. The only person who called White people the devil was Fred Sanford(Sanford and Sons). GTFOH

The Devil is a lie is a song by Rick Ross and Jay Z. Its about jealous people who will say and do anything to bring you down once you reach the top.
Race and Farrakhan (who by the way, no one under the age of 40 knows) has absolutely nothing to do with his post. WTF

You gotta love diagnosis from afar. It is completely unprofessional for any doctor to offer opinions on s patient they have not examined. As far as any diagnosis by the media, it is completely meaning less.

Moreover, AB was a prima Donna long before he took that hit.

If he is active game 1 he would collect it.

Mayock can cut bait with only paying him $600k.


So it comes down to whether Gruden wants to keep him or not. If this is the truth, a sensible organization eats the draft picks and cuts the guy. Who cares if he goes to the Patriots and regains his form, it isn't happening here, and you could use the money.

who some Giants fans seem to perceive Odell Beckham is.

In terms of personal conduct, OBJ hasn't done a fraction of the nonsense that Brown has been doing.

But unlike OBJ, Brown has been escaping scrutiny for the most part all this time because he's been on winning teams, and doesn't have the flashy hair and tattoos. They definitely do not belong together in the same conversation unless it's just about their talent as wide receivers.

No. Brown only received a $1M signing bonus. The rest of the guarantees are his 2019/2020 salaries. Brown's Contract - ( New Window )


Correction. Despite the $1M being listed as a signing bonus, it apparently never was. His contract broke the "signing bonus" into 2 workout bonuses of $500K for each year. The salt in the wound for Brown is that he might not get a single cent from the Raiders. He is already in default of the requirement that he participate in 85% of the required activities.

You’re so wrong on so many levels I don’t know where to begin. First of all, not all Nation of Islam (I.e. farakhan) members are 5%ers. The nation of 5% was a break away from the Nation of Islam (for those confused here, the Nation of Islam is related to but not the same thing as traditional Islam).

2nd, I highly doubt AB is in the Nation of Islam, as there are only about 20,000 total members as of today (there are even way fewer Nation of 5% members, they only have like one mosque/location in the world - in NYC).

A lot of people believe the phrase “the devil is a liar”, including blacks and whites, Christians, Muslims, people of all creeds and color. There’s a passage (or several) in the Bible that allude to this idea. “The Devil” is a pretty universal term /belief that represents evil in the world. It may have had to do with Mayock being white, it may not have, you don’t know, I don’t know, hell with where AB’s head has been at I’m not even sure he knows so who are you be qualified to “translate”?

But Mayock was trying to de-escalate the situation with Brown on Wednesday and AB called him a cracker?

Of course the dude is going to try and apologize and get all sentimental, he is about to lose $30M.

Looks like he is using Josina Anderson as his mouth piece in the media, OBJ must have given him her number.

Bizarro Football World.

I just heard Clay Travis say that O.J. Simpson posted a video on Twitter telling Brown that he has to "chill out." I don't tweet, so I didn't see it, myself, but Travis's point was that if you're getting good life advice from O.J. Simpson, you've got to make better decisions about your life and your career. Travis also said that Adam Schefter is reporting that the Raiders are trying to figure out how they can void Brown's contract.

I don't believe that's true. It's standard wording in every veterans contract about being on the opening day roster and not some poison pill type of thing Mayock slipped in there.

The players association might try and raise a stink but it'll be a futile one, and probably something they'll try and fix in the next CBA.

Here is a sense of how quickly things are changing in Oakland: Yesterday, #Raiders coach Jon Gruden told people AB was not in their plans for Monday. Now, I hear… there is a real chance he not only does not get suspended but actually plays. Wild times


"planning to suspend" and actually suspending a guy are 2 very different things. A no nonsense organization like NE/Philly/NYG etc... wouldn't put up with yesterday's antics and he'd never play a game for them again but the Raiders welcome this shit. They love it , they bathe in it. Have ever since I was a kid in the 70's...
