Hour 2: More AB Fallout


It on a much more serious note. Let's talk some football. There are new sexual assault allegations against Antonio Brown artist who accused Brown of sexual misconduct says she received intimidating text messages from Brown after allegations surfaced this week in sports illustrated the woman told sl she received a group oop text message that appeared to come from the same number Brown gave her in two thousand seventeen when he hired her to paint a mural. The woman says she believes it was brown encouraging others in the text to investigate her describing quote super broke. She's not pursuing charges money but her attorney and the NFL have arranged a call between investigators and SL reports art great football every time you walk in the doors here. You know be a team so every time I walk here. I just WanNa make sure the apparent kitties guys my from the League. If anything about your availability before appreciate that question you know I'm just here it is you just focus on ball and look forward to getting out there in the home stadium okay that was. Ab Talking yesterday today before these allegations came out we have NFL executive VP football ops and of course former Philadelphia Eagle Troy Vincent still here with us. Thank you again of course for being here serious matter. Please tell me this what goes into being on the Commissioner's exempt list will tip the process. That's handled through the Management Council Commissioner. We have set up security officer an investigative team so each case is different most are criminal cases and that process goes through the commissioner and he actually has some council internal and external evaluation situation and it rises to the level of being on the exemplifies. I'm curious curious to know from the NFL's perspective as you see so many of us myself Max v Molly various others speculate speculate about what the NFL is supposed to do. What's the misnomer? That's out there all the time in terms of stuff like this in other words Alright Antonio Brown acting up the Commissioner Roger Goodell what you put them on a commission. We automatically lean on the League office. We don't even think about the teams themselves themselves. Sometimes we usually think about you guys you and Roger Goodell mainly people think about that. What's the misnomer that's out there that people need to gather and understand about exactly what goes on with these decisions are? The decisions aren't made in evacuate an individual decisions. We've learned years ago of that. It's a it's a team concept concept and you don't want to you're innocent until proven guilty and every case is different these pending investigations we take him serious especially when you start talking about sex crimes those are things that you know that's delicate and you want to write people right professionals those individuals who actually deal with those things that are experts in those fields they evaluate the process they bring those materials back to commissioner and his team and then there's a decision that's GonNa help you know sometimes common sense can get in the way of due process. Due Process is Bate is rooted in basic fairness which elite can be set to have of value of like we want to be fair. Obviously every league wants to make money but you also want to take these kinds of allegations brought by women very seriously based on what we how everyone's been educated about. What oftentimes is the case when these allegations are brought the in the situation like this when you get it when you start to get multiple accusations on the one hand you say well once he's been accused once but nothing's been proven he's more vulnerable to another accusation? Someone who'd be extorted shorted on the other hand. It's common sense that if multiple people are accusing the same person of the same thing it's different than say if one a person is accusing multiple people of something right you think whoa wait a minute. This is not the only person saying this about you so how much does kind of common sense play into the Commissioner's exempt list in a situation like this is processes due process and some time we've seen common sense doesn't play out sometime. Commonsense isn't fair. You don't WanNa falsely accused of anything you know and also wanted victimize someone as well so the due process. This is important action. No one wants to jump to conclusions. No one wants to go out. That's why the team investigators are gathering all the facts bring those back in eternal share those with the club and representation but what does an executive for the National Football League say in defense of the Commissioner of all all the commissioners lists when we've been taught that sometimes it's not about guilt or innocence. It's about staining the shield impugning the integrity of the national football league and that alone is justification for us as the League to say. You don't need to be a uniform right now because we have the luxury of making that call. What do you say to that? What policies policy we've all had to live through that as a former player when and that is necessary? We've seen the commissioner exempt people be player to be put on Christmas Commissioner's exempt list time and time again but we've learned and also you gotta do your diligence so I would just say again. Those decisions aren't made in a vacuum commission. Adele is not making those decisions. Individually it is a is a team that is bring back those facts and then he weighs in does this rise to the level with all of the facts on the table should someone the for the folks at home just so they want to have some peace of mind we understand this clearly the NFL speaking with Brittany Taylor that was the first set of sexual assault allegations allegations and this female artist as well and they'll be investigating with them and speaking bolt directly correct grow. I've one last question about this has the. NFL established I whether Antonio Brown sent the text message that has been reported and disseminated in the media where he taught where he texts her purportedly reportedly reportedly what he did while she was sleeping because to me that is commissioner's exempt list if he said that that's bad that it was nonconsensual appending an investigation will leave it on that note. Yes please give it up for Troy Vincent. Everybody thank you for being here on behalf of the League and of course right down the street from Philly Yeah Winston Salem State. I see you what's going on everybody. Welcome back into I take. HVAC you week. We're here in Wilmington Delaware Steffi sixers. We're GONNA have a little fun right now. We're GONNA play segment called back to school Steven Stephen A. and Max up there in the crowd looking like young pups when they were back at Columbia St Bobby here from willing founding tenants kind enough to join US bobby. What do you want to ask Max and Steven Steven A? I just wanted to know who do you think we'll have the more impactful for performance on Sunday Patrick Mahomes or my man action Jackson. We'll go with action Jackson. I'm Lamar Jackson so you know why because not only is he throwing the football bedroom. We know he's got wheels on up. Last time I checked Kansas City still don't have a defense. That's that's why they want Jalen Ramsey so bad patrick mahomes is a bad brother but the ravens a no joke defensively Kansas City might be joke which is why oh. I didn't need to get Jalen Ramsey. I agree with all that here's the problem. Patrick Mahomes has played real one real season a couple games. This dude has thrown fifty seven touchdowns and two interceptions. No no sorry twelve interceptions in the last. What is it eighteen games fifty seven touchdowns and twelve interceptions? He just turned twenty four he he might wind up being the best to ever did it. Give me mahomes alright. Thank you so much right. Now we have made here from University of Delaware are paying homage of Andrew his career cut short. Thank you so much for being with US nate what you've got for the guys Max. Which quarterback would you rather have going forward jared goff or Baker Mayfield? You know what for me it's Baker. The Baker's got jet. Bakers got something that tells me when they get the offensive line together when when they get acclimated the whole thing money on the line. I want speaker over golf. Maybe in other situations the money on the line Jimmy Baker over Governor Baker well. I wouldn't know because I haven't seen the Cleveland browns but money on the line yet with jared the fact that a matter matter is jared Goff is Taller Jared Goff can make any throw jared Goff beautiful spiral. He can fling that football there is no doubt about that. I do think Baker Mayfield if you've got a better set of receivers with Landry and Odell Beckham Junior even joke who got hurt but the bottom line is jared Goff is fresh off a super bowl. The rams gave even one hundred and ten million a guaranteed dollars for a reason this brother Ken fling the football where Baker Mayfield wins is in headlines because he's in Cleveland and he's got people like you to dip as championship contenders when ain't done a damn thing Friday with Cleveland Williams here with me now don't they look so cute and innocent up there. They just need lunchboxes and fabric keeper. Just like young box walks out William when he went asked the guy's got question for Mr Steven A. and Steven.
