Antonio Brown vs. Ben Roethlisberger: Who is the Bigger Asshole?

What Happened?

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette first reported Brown elected to sit out practices after the heated dispute, and the Steelers’ decision not to play him against the Bengals had nothing to do with a knee injury. The report, citing several sources, said Brown became “disgusted” and threw a football in anger at one of his teammates during a walk-through.

Brown got upset that Roethlisberger wanted to run a hot read over again during a walk-through, so coaches sent another player to run the play, a source close to the situation told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Brown got upset, left practice and talked with Roethlisberger afterward, telling the quarterback that he felt underappreciated and had issues with people in the organization, the source told Schefter.


Sooo Antonio Brown got into a bit of a skirmish with Ben Roethlisberger at practice in the middle of the week and then did not return to the team until gameday Sunday afternoon where he was promptly benched in the Steelers ‘must-win’ game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Steelers were able to beat the Bengals without Brown but were still eliminated from the playoffs and it is now being reported that Antonio Brown wants to be traded.

Now, it’s very easy to call Antonio Brown a narcissist who only cares about himself. Mostly because he’s a narcissist who only cares about himself.

Here’s what former teammate, Ryan Clark, had to say about Brown’s mindset:


Earlier this year, Antonio Brown was sued for throwing furniture out of his balcony weekend and nearly hitting a toddler. Wild that that same man might also be an asshole. Weird.

Wait wait wait, you’re telling me that the man who arrived to training camp this summer in a fucking helicopter might not be a ‘team-first’ guy? I am shocked.

Jesse Washington wrote a feature story for The Undefeated about AB’s life off the field including AB firing his chef and trainers randomly and his rough relationship with the mother of one of his children.

So naturally, Antonio Brown went on Twitter and threatened to break his jaw.

Oh no, I have bad news. Antonio Brown miiiiight be an asshole. Clearly this situation in Pittsburgh is his fault and Ben Roethlisberger is completely without fault.

Sure, this year Ben Roethlisberger threw a late 4th guarter interception directly into the arms of a defensive tackle on the goal line and his immediate reaction was to blame Antonio Brown…

And even though again, he threw the ball into a defensive lineman’s chest and there’s nothing Antonio Brown could’ve done about it, this still doesn’t put Big Ben at fault.

I guess we could look back a couple of seasons ago when former wide receiver, Martavis Bryant was suspended for failing a drug test and Ben went on a press tour completely shitting on him instead of showing any sort of support for his teammate.

That was in the past and Bryant shouldn’t have been on the weeed-uh.

That’s rookie wide receiver, James Washington, dropping what would have been an amazing catch about a month ago. Ben Roethlisberger being the great veteran leader that we know he is, must’ve put his arm around Washington and picked him up.

He has to make it. I just think he didn’t trust his hands. For some reason, he jump/dove. I’m not really sure what he was doing. We look at it (on film), and coach got on him pretty good yesterday. We took a long, hard look at it. James needs to run through that, and it’s a touchdown.”

Oh….um, nevermind. He actually went on a local Pittsburgh radio station and publicly shit on the ROOKIE for barelyyyy dropping a pass.

*whispers* Big Ben also has countless sexual assault allegations against him and tried to bang Stormy Daniels like, 3 minutes after she just had sex with Donald Trump.

This isn’t good. It turns out, they’re both garbage bags.

But who is the bigger asshole: Antonio Brown or Ben Roethlisberger?

It’s tough. Do you pick the selfish womanizing asshole or the selfish womanizing asshole?

Burn Pittsburgh to the ground and just relocate to Omaho, Nebraska or some shit.
