Antonio Brown Frostbitten feet

Recommended Posts

Is this guy dumb or what. He probably has nerve damage. If he can’t play I hope Oakland gets some money back.

Just when you think you've heard it all then this news shows up.  It's so crazy I still can't believe a grown man would do something like that.  His career could be in jeopardy.  This news is totally nuts.

Well, I've never been in a cryotherapy machine but I was talking to someone last week who does this all the time.  She said they have a person right there the whole time you are in there.  Surely one of their jobs is to not let you in without the proper footwear.

 

Weird that you have to wear shoes when the rest of you is naked imo

I'm hearing news that he will be fine. Not the sharpest tool in the shed but very lucky it wasn't worse.

You make the best point.

I don't know how he was allowed to do this..

You don't use this machine by yourself

Oh.... well if he's "day to day" then I guess he'll be back within 7 days.

 

He's still a blithering dunce and recklessly irresponsible for getting himself in the situation he's in.

He’s been a great WR and who knows?.... he might be the nicest guy in the world... but what he did was just plain stupid and/or negligent.... and it hurt him and his team.

I watched the first episode of hard knocks. He was practicing some. I was actually kind of shocked at how good of a father he looks to be. He had his three little ones at TC. One of them asked him where is Rothlesburger. It was pretty funny.

Yikes. You hate to see players get hurt/injured in any way, even if they aren’t the most likable. Hopefully he’ll be alright and back on the field this season.

So it sounds like discord has already been brewing since OTAs because of a required helmet change.

 

Then can you imagine him showing up with frost bitten feet and not practicing, and now they don’t know where he is??

 

Crazy.

Now A#$&*^% Brown has stated if he can't wear his old helmet banned by the PA and the NFL he will quit football. Brown stated earlier today, "WHA-A-A-A, WHA-A-A-A, WHA-A-A-A". Brown also said, "I want my mommy!"

Which Indy media guy wrote the article saying Ballard wasn't doing his job if he wasn't pursuing AB? Was it Kravitz?

 

This guy is a great player. And he has become too much of a distraction, despite his greatness.

Not to defend AB but sometimes equipment is important    

      If the IHSAA had made an edict and disallowed the special helmet I had to wear I would have had to quit

 

 

   This AB situation reminds me of the recent story of the Euro. Basketball player who was banned for 2 years after he tested pregnant

The fact this is THE news story in NFL sports is whack.

I agree, and it can go beyond the surface and become personal.  Certainly comfort, feel, fit, and vision window factor in as well, and being used to a specific helmet model substantiates that.

Gruden is siding with Brown. Likes attract.

 

Brown has worn that (model) helmet his entire career. But he (and others like Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady, etc...) were given notice last year that helmet model (reportedly a Schutt Air Advantage) would not be re-certified (because it's not manufactured anymore) by NOSCAE / SEI, and is over 10 years old design.

 

CTE and concussions are NFL concerns. However, even with advanced helmet models, concussions aren't prevented. Remember Brian Cushing? He suffered a concussion in his very first game wearing the new tech Vicis Zero1 helmet in 2017.

 

https://money.cnn.com/2017/09/16/news/companies/vicis-nfl-helmet-concussions-safety/index.html

 

Helmets never were and aren't concussion preventing devices.  Question is, how much does the new technology help (with quantifiable data) to reduce them? 

 

Brown's helmet had previously tested at the lower rung of acceptable in previous years, and I bet that is one item Brown argued in an arbitration call last Friday (and how NHL grandfathered in Vets preferences when they mandate a new helmet rule, etc.)  And I know I feel less comfortable when I get a new pair of eyeglasses, or shoes, or ...

 

But Brown cant practice or play in that old equipment (thus can't get paid) until he complies or the arbitrator makes a ruling in his favor.  Interesting to see how this plays out.

He will recover fine, probably well before game 1.

Article above ↑  explains how they got that way.  Excerpt-

 

"My opinion is that Brown was suffering from macerated feet from too much moisture while training. In some ways, this is a milder form of “trench foot” seen in soldiers from World War I. This medically seems to be the primary problem."

 

"Assuming Brown then used a cryotherapy machine without proper foot protection, in wet socks or with “wet” macerated feet, the cold would conduct against the moisture. It would then freeze the skin only on the moist soles of the outer layer of skin on his feet and not on his toes, tops of his feet or arch."

his feet are jacked up. i think this hole helmet thing is just a misdirection from his feet.  he is going to miss significant time with the feet.  its going to be a month or 2 until his feet are better.
