Broncofan Posted September 18, 2018 Share Posted September 18, 2018 (edited) Normally, this isn't news, but there's context. After the loss, AB was upset on the sidelines (and this isn't new, like most players, he gets upset about L's). For some reason, a former PIT PR employee (who sounds like he got fired, because he's been nothing but a PITA crucifying PIT on his account lol) took umbrage with AB, and called him, saying he's a stat-wh*re who would be lucky to play in PIT, and wouldn't get nearly the same stats anywhere else. So AB replied. Let's be clear - the guy is a FORMER Pitt PR guy. Not a reporter for PIT's media. Not a present day PIT guy. So it should have died. Except that overnight, the media and fan reaction really came out with a fair amount of heat on AB for posting that. To me, it was his right to take down a troll. I mean, last time I looked, AB wasn't playing D. And he wasn't the GM who thought the D would be fine without Shazier with the ragtag group of ILB's they go...and the group of CB's who get consistently toasted. But ok, AB's the problem. And the same AB who took a hometown discount on his deal for PIT. SMH. And now we have this... Add it up, unless it was an excused absence, there's MAJOR trouble brewing in Pittsburgh with AB. First Bell, now AB. Wow. Edited September 18, 2018 by Broncofan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
