Judge Jury and Executioner Roger Goodell with Antonio Brown

Talented but unemployed NFL receiver Antonio Brown reportedly met with Roger Goodell on Thursday, hoping to resolve his status and emerge from the purgatory that has left him unsigned since he was released by the Patriots on September 20.
Scarcely a blub about the meeting emerged through media coverage in the two days following the scheduled interview.

Britney Taylor v Antonio Brown NFL

Much debate has swirled around whether Antonio Brown should be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list or face suspension since news broke of a lawsuit alleging that he raped a former trainer. If the allegations are true, then Antonio Brown should be punished, but at this stage, all the public and presumably the Patriots and NFL have is a “he said/she said” scenario, with the only evidence an unsworn lawsuit filed in federal court and a statement by Brown’s attorney refuting the allegations.
