  1. First Things First: Cris Carter and Nick Wright

    What are your thoughts on Antonio Brown's grievance over his helmet?

    1. MOUF Of Da SOUF

      Smh Chris Carter is the biggest hypocrite. When he was playing for Minnesota Vikings did he have any privileges??? Tom Brady said he doesn't want to change helmets either but do i hear anything about that? This is crazy and stupid wth are they sitting here talking about AB one the best recievers in the game..No scrap that hes one of the best players in the game.. Carter is part of that good ol boy network.. Let that man AB do him and stop listening to his every word waiting for a slip up on words! Not actions these commentators need a new job...

    2. Michael C

      Helmets are not even supposed to reconditioned and certified 10 years and beyond.


      i think the G man might have made his first mistake and Brown will never live out his contract!!

  2. jgfunk

    AB needs to start making himself about football instead of making football about him.

  3. SubGrappling 805

    The vast, widespread mental illness is the biggest, most buried topic in the black community.

  4. Young Sno

    What I don't understand is that AB can't see out of new helmets so that's why he wants his old one. Why don't he just put the old face mask onto a new helmet so he can see. The shape of the helmet shouldn't effect how much you can see, it's the face mask that does that. Unless he's just that Petty and won't do that and swears any knew helmet won't let him see and the shape of the old one lets him see. Which is stupid af.

  5. Guitarslingin Zombiekiller

    I'll take "NFL Primadonnas" for $500 Chuck!

  6. trill banks

    it's a magic helmet AB is wearing that makes him perform at a high level

  7. deathintheair84 strappedintheeletricchair

    Whats with the manly looking chick

  8. Rell Brown

    He is getting paid as we speak, so its like Trump Show Me You Owe Me!

  9. Sean Allen

    AB need CT

  10. Saymeen Turner

    He painted his old helmet and got caught 😂😂😂😆😆😆😆😭😭😭

  11. Frank Ucros

    Well all I see here is a future 30 for 30: Antonio brown: How i ended up working at McDonald’s bc I blew all my money

  12. larry Myers

    He needs to grow up

  13. SlimeTyme Ent.

    T NFL gone get petty and not put em in the hall of fame

  14. jd2616

    That helmet has already caused him brain damage.

  15. Susan McIntyre

    He is big cry baby! BOOHOO

  16. Ethan H

    At least he can always wear his helmet in madden

  17. tocororo

    He is way past CTE. Lol

  18. J

    I imagine Mike Tomlin has a spring in his step these days.

  19. Robert Jaquez

    Bet Raiders regret trading Amari Cooper now lmao

  20. schtuke

    For this segment to go 8-1/2 minutes is ridiculous. Two minutes tops would've adequately covered the Antonio Brown issue.

  21. Nic Mic

    Well ain't that 'bout A.B,.....I-T-C-H.

  22. Sebastian Caro

    OBJ-Im the biggest diva in the league rn AB- Hold my helmet

    1. Nathaniel Williams


  23. Brian Fortune

    I can’t stand Cris Carter.. he makes this show weak. Stop harping on AB

  24. 7thvenom

    AB is Bi-Polar period point blank

    1. Kesh k

      At LEAST

  25. RX-93v2 Hi-Nu

    Another player who the Raiders over paid before said player has done anything for the team. This follows the Raiders refusing to pay K Mack to over pay John Gruden and now AB. Why do Raider fans have to suffer with dumb decisions post Al Davis?? RIP another Raider season(s)

  26. VolumedMusicMan

    AB is a problem child. He instability is toxic. He’s worse than Brandon Marshall. Gruden better not appease this guy too much or he’s gonna lose his team!

  27. The Truth

    I went to my job the other day and told my boss i was going to wear sandals and board shorts, he fired me on the spot. Ungrateful people are ridiculous

  28. Regis Sanders

    That's his Like Mike helmet that gives him his magical ability. If he doesn't wear it, he will be exposed for the trash receiver he really is

  29. Regis Sanders

    this fool really tried to get away with painting a Steelers helmet Raiders colors. I don't know why that is so HILARIOUS to me lmao

  30. Rafii Guasp

    Omg 2011 thats soooo out of date might as well been using a leather helmet. U know they hate when they bring up the cellphone usage.

  31. Christopher Helm


    1. Christopher Helm


  32. Kurt Hartz

    Oh but all you same guys were pretty much blaming big Ben for the issues in Pittsburgh and I sat back laughing waiting for this time to come now reality is setting in and all of a sudden the true identity of the problem is rearing it's ugly head or should I say rearing its ugly Mr.big chest , and now all of you who were playing the blame game are realizing exactly what the Steelers were dealing with for the past few years Antonio Brown is a disease and the Raiders pretty much gave them a cure by taking that disease and injecting it into their team , all I have to say is this makes all of you look like hypocrites!!! Especially the guy next to Chris Carter he is a joke , he was really bashing Big Ben and basically the Steelers and it seems like he only does it when someone else brings up a situation and he basically piles on like a bully so to speak.what I'm trying to say is shut your big dumb mouth when you don't know the whole truth and story to what is really going on!!!! By the way thanks Raider nation for taking away the plague lmfao.

  33. Alan Page

    We really need to see the painted helmet.

  34. Dan R Goodnight

    useless diva nonsense

  35. myers •

    That's hella funny my reciever AB painted an old stealers helmet 😂

  36. 4 over 12

    Wtf is ur hair bro

  37. MegaSkilla

    Uncomfortable fact, AB is acting like someone suffering from the onset of CTE.


    God knows how to humble people like him and it won't be pretty!

  39. Rob Roberts

    No volume.

  40. Sadie Adler

    It's all so he can sue the NFL

  41. Marv Marv

    AB makes OBJ looks like an 👼

  42. thafunnyguy26

    Has anyone considered brain damage is the cause of his behaviour ? I mean AB takes some hits across the middle and eats them. The Burfict hit was brutal.

  43. Gerry James

    The NFL should just have him sign a waiver stating the they will not be in any way liable for any injury that he might suffer from not using the new helmet. It's not complicated people if he gets hurts that's on him and not the NFL.

  44. Julio Dos Santoes

    I´m so happy that he´s no longer in Pittsburgh. This is only the start of a lot of problems for Raider Nation.

  45. Adventures & Survival in Thailand

    US football commentators have too much time on their hands, with only a 16 game season and they have to talk all year lol

  46. J da high roller

    AB makes OBJ look like Jeffrey [the butler] from fresh prince

  47. Alex G./AacaL05

    If he retires his contract should be voided

    1. Kelvin Reaves

      Alex G./AacaL05 it’s not gonna come to that imo this is publicity stunt to have a storyline that generates ratings for Hard Knocks this season

  48. Dawon Tyler'Fulse

    The Raiders is his last stop he better smarten up because he has nowhere else to go and if he doesn't oh well see you later

  49. Raymond Alvarado

    Gruden loves AB

  50. Raymond Alvarado

    Float like a Butterfly sting like A 🐝

  51. Raymond Alvarado

    AB is the best receiver in the league.. worth all the drama ! Go Raiders!!

  52. J Johnson

    Why can’t he use the helmet? Let him sign a waiver then. I don’t see the big issue.

  53. young bird24

    Gruden gots to back him up he just gave him 30 m

  54. Ekati

    Sounds like AB has already had too many shots to the head.

  55. Izen Guarr

    The Raiders & the NFL should ban the POS permanently... Let him keep his favorite helmet and go sell drugs on the street corner again.

  56. Aaron Beaulieu

    Steelers must be feeling pretty good rn

  57. A G

    He didn’t turn into AB until he woke up from the burfict hit

  58. Jay D

    He’s trolling you all lol

  59. gerty gerty

    I was thinking this could be mental health or CTE. The problem I think is possibly worse -- this behavior might actually just be who he is as a person.

  60. Toni's 60th

    Cris is 100 percent correct...AB is a clown...

  61. Toni's 60th

    What is happening with Nick's hair...?

  62. FMA Bincarim

    AB is has lost it. Its not money. Its not the team. He taken too many hits.

  63. Round Robin

    Love seeing all of the comments from blacks who know they cannot defend AB's now it's "Maybe he has CTE". No group has less self-awareness than blacks. That is a fact. I guarantee you AB was BORN this stupid. Dude painted a Steelers helmet thinking no one would notice. Doesn't get any dumber that THAT.

  64. PC Cooper

    if Gruden didn't support his player he'd be beat up by the media, and lose AB. If I was Gruden, I'd cut ties with this freak. AB needs a straight-jacket. Cris said it, "this is just the beginning"

  65. Alcozar

    It has a feeling of...............INSANITY!!!!

  66. BaahBen

    AB is really disappointing. For a Princeton graduate, I am very surprised at his behavior.

  67. BaahBen

    IF you watch Gruden talking to his men, he is basically a complete idiot. There has never been a more over-rated coach in the history of the NFL. He should have stayed in a booth

  68. REAL Talk

    This is a Raiders franchise conspiracy, and AB is nothing but a proxy. I smell a Raiders public stunt for an apparel sells boost.#deepstate

    1. Charming nowhere to hide

      Antonio Brown make Kanye West look like Tim Duncan or Uncle Phil

  69. El Hombre Negro

    AB love that helmet model the"Air Power" , because it is still the greatest helmet ever to be made before and after since 1976 when BIKE production put the model out then Athletic incorporated in 1986, now schutt, the model "Air Power" is the best design, the best comfortable, and safe i bet the model can still pass todays (NOCSAE) test

    1. Charming nowhere to hide

      Back in the 1920's they used a washcloth for a helmet and played for a pack of cigarettes

  70. Puppet lover

    Just let the man wear the helmet lol
