      That weak collar you have on 😂😂😂 lol why he go on him like that?? #2 next time you wanna insert yourself in the debate give me a heads up... 🙊🙊🙊 you dont have to handle molly like that fam.

    2. Michael Tovar

      Molly Shut up!!!!

    3. Josh Richards

      Antonio Brown is a diva

    4. Jake McCann

      Rarely do I agree with complete Ass Clowns like Stephen A. Smith, but he's spot on with this one. Oh yeah, I almost forgot: capitulate, capitulate, capitulate. 😂

    5. Kevin E.

      Lol Stephen clapbacking at Molly!😂😂😂

    6. ejones9924

      My name is Mr. Brown!!!

    7. Alma S

      Feel like Will made a pretty solid argument here. Just let Brown wear his helmet. If he gets a concussion, that's on him.

    8. 7H3_M4R714N_HY3N4!

      People like John Cain are teaching ppl to not face obstacles.

      1. King KOBS

        No, he's putting responsibility back onto Antonio Brown since Brown wants to make an issue out of the helmet. Brown knows his helmet isn't up to current regulation. The NFL has let him know and this would be used to absolve themselves when Brown's CTE symptoms get worse.

    9. FLY HARD

      Why should he be forced to wear a new helmet when it only affects him, it's his safety so it should be his choice.

    10. Mr. Dank Nugs

      Who cares what helmet he uses? Have him sign something and if he gets hurt... Oh well

    11. phantom 7 cross rose

      who is the little pinhead brother with the helium voice, sorry Stephen A if you is tranny, dats 😎

    12. H-matic08 PSN

      Basically molly, shut your mouth

    13. dsetgetatme

      When Stephen A. Smith goes beast mode, its a freakin CLASSIC 🙌🙌🙌

    14. Mclean Davis

      Steven A doesnt have enough cowboy in him. To much of a rule follower

    15. Fotosynthesis858

      AB is being selfish, childish & petty? Well... That's nothing new. Why does this surprise anyone? He's been nothing but trouble every since he came into the NFL. What good is being that talented if he's just going to act like an entitled little DIVA??? The NFL should BAN HIM & take away this years & last years pay because he hasn't done anything but be DIFFICULT. I'm so over listening to sports analysts give this douchebag more attention than he deserves smh. 🖕🏽 AB. 👎🏾👎🏾

    16. Cornsnake 4815

      Heck no they shouldn't allow him to sign a waiver and continue to play. What kind of message is that going to send? Our players can act like 5 year old children and we're just going to bend and give them their way? The NFL has already had enough problems when it comes to players getting away with actions on and off the field that they should not be. Give me Antonio Brown a very very mild dose of how the real world actually works. Nobody else in the world gets to go into their workplace and act like this and expect to have your will given into or even have a job the next day. This whole situation is a really good example of why people don't give a rat's ass about the players scolding us and lecturing us on societal issues. Nobody else except these millionaire athletes has the ability to behave like this and continue to be employed.

    17. Super K

      NFL is full of class act charector individuals.........NOT!!!

    18. GotDramaAllergy

      Pretty tough,cant find another human to catch the ball and go over the middle? Dump his butt ...Wish was 25 ago,I'd catch the ball and go over the middle.Team

    19. Mike Melino

      Sounds like a bitch Steelers fan

    20. JWLS - JARBS

      "Come on will" sounds like a parent when their kid does something stupid 😂 😂 😂

    21. fu516

      I think Will Cain should replace Max

    22. hollywood fats

      yeah, i find it staggering. what a terrible attitude. downright ridiculous! does anyone support his nonsense here?

    23. tocororo

      I'd let him play without a helmet if he wants to. Screw him lol

    24. chris olsen

      Damn I’ll bet molly ran straight to HR after Stephen A put her in her place!

    25. Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard

      Good God, he is showing why the Steelers got rid of him !!! Oh yes, he wears his old helmet, then in 10 or more years from now when is not playing any longer, he will sue the NFL for Concussion !! What a DIVA he is !!

    26. Roger That

      You are too kind calling him petty and childish. To me he is a turd in the grass. Nice to walk on grass till you step on a turd like AB. My poor raiders have to walk on homefield turf with a Brown turd amongst them. GTFO of football you turd. Now he claims the NFL being prejudice .. WTF is wrong with you??? You POS Brown turd!!!! I actually took his side against big ben but now im against . The game will move on without your self centered punk ass biotch so retire already..nobody likes a turd!!!

    29. Benny Blanco

      I love it when Steven A puts Molly annoying ass in her place. Mark my words, one day he'll say the wrong thing and the mob will come after him.

    30. Benny Blanco

      To top off Browns childish behavior, he pulls the weak, ignorant and TYPICAL, racist finger pointing. The NFL want give him what he wants so they must be racist 😂😂

    31. YETI

      That white guy is delusional.

    32. Evelyn Pollard

      agree with you and I agree always was always will be I've damn Cry-Baby

    33. Sokly Vann

      🤣🤣 So, why is everyone mad or surprised? Antonio is being Antonio. He is a clown and a ME guy.

    34. youngbuck0911

      Stephen 'capitulating' Smith.

    35. Jstud

      AB is nothing but a little b####. Always crying and complaining. Horrible citizen and example

    36. Joe Permenter

      Throw me the ball every time, cool my body temperature down because I'm coming from back east, pay me more money than everybody, let me wear my own equipment, change my diapers, wipe my ass with hundred dollar bills...

    37. Krystin Grant

      What is his issue? Is it drugs like WTH. If he runs off with that money and retires they will send him a lawsuit.

    38. The Sombrero Ranchero

      the high definition quality of this video is more real then life itself.

    43. Andrew Babbitt

      I’m glad Stephen A. “took the liberty” to DO HIS JOB

    44. Ju Man

      Big Ben made you Boi!!

    45. Dave Kukulka

      The first time I agree with this guy


      If he retire nfl will be kinda boring honestly yall would have no news he one of the most popular players in the nfl like ot or not.. Plus when he step on that field he's next level he's not regular.

      1. Filipo Sooa

        EYEZ ON THE PRIZE BOUND4GLORY nah, there’s a million of NFL players out there and none of them are as special as Joe Montana, Troy Aikman, Dan Marino, John Elway, Peyton Manning or Tom Brady, or even Eli Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Ben Roethlisberger.

    47. Phil Hugs

      When you capitulate you initially start to see capitulation as the capitulating process capitulates more over capitulating the final capitulate capitulate capitulating capitulationizing

    48. Bra Nene

      Stephen A. is ESPN .......Stephen A. is First Take..

    49. texasvice1

      As the saying goes "Give them an inch, they will take a mile." He pulled that spoiled child syndrome in Pittsburgh now he wants to challenge the NFL. I guess he didn't understand what they did to Kaepernick.

    50. Trey Ratliff

      Y Steven a snapped 😹😹

    51. Steph Thompson

      Lakers are second round bye.. It’s gonna be the clippers vs. nuggets WCF Will Cain is right

    52. Chris Carter

      Biggest diva

    53. wackedout13

      Raiders are a joke can’t believe John gruden lets this clown of AB get away with nonsense. The real winners in the trade are the Steelers.

    54. Andy Thompson

      This idiot knows nothing about football. They talk and talk and are always wrong...

    55. Five Star Podcast

      Look how salty Molly was. Lmao. Stfu moron.

    56. Just Us

      So, the "secret" to Brown's greatest is his old helmet and the new helmet is "kryptonite??!!"

    57. Chez God

      The same helmet that he got a concussion in multiple times, ok buddy?

    58. IzzyTek

      I know Molly is annoying but shes so sexy

    59. Michael Lee

      Antonio brown never said he’ll retire. This is the problem with the media. Really just making shit up for attention and false information. And just because it sounds like something he’ll say in his situation dosent mean he said it. 🤦‍♂️

    60. Ryan

      Im amazed Stephen A didn't bring up how this affected the Knicks in some way

    61. Kevin Fuller

      Same thing with Nascar with the head brace since D.E. died. It's about safety!

    62. tommywright3rd

      Inside Molly's head: Go to hell,Stephen ! Inside WIll's head: Kiss my ass dude ! ON camera : SIlence

    63. Meistro Shine

      Phew that was cold. Stephen A came out with his barrels on fire

    64. Unconsciouzone

      What does Stephen A Smith think about civil liberties? My thought is...people should be allowed to hurt themselves freely without juridicticion, I'm not advocating self destructive beahivior. I.m advocating freedom of thought control.

    65. DropSixteenTV Tv

      This guy is more known for his antics than his game at this point.

    66. Rico Devante

      Stephen A can't tell someone how they would react hypothetically. Dude made i point you wanna be a dumb ass sign a waiver. More or less they cover themselves legally and that's all they care about.

    67. Anne Diola

      I agree with Stephen A. First off... AB is not being mature on how he handled this helmet situation (before arbitrator ‘s decision I mean) and really isn’t being a good role model. Secondly, with what studies have proven about concussion and effects of CTE, the league is making sure to place plAyer health & safety as a huge priority. Why can’t AB see that? Think of it like seatbelts. If you’re caught on the road driving or riding as a passenger without your seatbelt, PO can hand you a citation. Why do and should we wear a seatbelt? For our safety! While wearing a seatbelt and being involved in a car accident doesn’t always guarantee you’ll not get hurt, it sure beats the odds of not wearing one and flying out of your vehicle. Survival rate is better when you’re buckled in. Same with helmets. If better technology and equipment exist to protect players’ “coconuts” then what’s with the public outcry? 🤦🏻‍♀️

    68. frannie magee

      These comments got me crying! Stephen A is right AB need to stop making problems the league ain’t gonna keep dealing with his whining forever.

    69. Zsayzwat

      No.2- let me know when u want to insert yourself into a debate. Damn he got u bitch now shut up forever! I wish Jalen would say some shit. She’s a MODERATOR not a COMMENTATOR... know your role bitch know your role

    70. Zsayzwat

      When da fuck did Molly come back? I want this bitch to wear a turtle neck.... Over her mouth
