“You’ve got to know when to hold ’em; know when to fold ’em…” The iconic song seems to comport with Antonio Brown’s situation. In what realistically was only a couple of weeks ago but now seems like eons, I wrote about how Brown had played his cards perfectly in landing with what is presumed his preferred destination with the New England Patriots and securing a high-dollar contract, following his controversial departures from the Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders. He even picked up a new helmet endorsement deal after filing two grievances challenging the requirement to wear only new league-approved helmets.
“Every gambler knows that the secret to survivin’ is knowin’ what to throw away and knowin’ what to keep…”
Apparently after scoring a royal flush with the Patriots

The issue of settlement funding and claim advances in regard to the NFL Concussion Settlement continues to become more and more bizarre. On September 19, Thrivest Specialty Funding petitioned the Third Circuit Court of Appeals for a writ of mandamus, asking the appellate court to enforce their mandate.

As the expiration of the current collective bargaining agreement between the National Football League and the NFL Players Association hurls ever closer, the suitability of the NFLPA to represent the best interests of the players at large has again been called into question. A lawsuit challenging the PA’s oversight of a disability benefits plan for former players not only demonstrates a failure on the part of the PA but the judiciary as well.

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.
