    Well I mean rapists, wife beaters and child abusers are in the league...

    Someone who helped cover up murder was the face of the league for years... this is nothing compared to that

    This guy just won't stop. I think he really wants out. Now he's posting a phone conversation with Gruden. Unless he told Gruden that he is being recorded, isn't that illegal in California?

    Was fined for confrontation. Now sent out Instagram asking team to release him.

    Apparently the fine for conduct detrimental to the team also voids all of his $29 million in guarantees

    Can’t imagine the lack of focus on Denver by Oakland players with all this going around

    As a Steeler fan I can tell you, having him won't make you markedly better and not having him won't make you markedly worse.

    He's an incredible talent, but he takes at least as much as he gives. He's made some great plays for us to be sure, but good riddance, honestly.

    I am starting to wonder if we are being punked. In re reading his instagram post, I doubt he wrote it (not his normal "grammar") and the video release of his phone call with Gruden is apparently produced. Is it possible this is all a publicity stunt given the quality of last two stunts?

    Who is more deluded...AB, or Gruden, thinking that all that time on ESPN helped him to deal with today's players?

    I formally apologize for having defended him. Another chance and all. I've known guys like AB. Butter wouldn't melt in their mouths, but they have an uncontrollable impulse to be confrontational.

    I saw a comment from an unnamed Steeler that he never saw someone go from being a “good dude into someone I didn’t recognize” faster than AB.

    You were "spot on" when you started this thread at the beginning.

    What a spider's web Raiders got themselves into.
    He's a real pain in the butt spoiled brat that does not deserve the talent he has.
    Just another example that life is not fair. Just the way it is.

    The final straw had to have been posting the cell phone call with Gruden. He wouldn't have been allowed to apologize in person if the plan was already in place to void his guaranteed money, which made cutting him inevitable. After the apology, he was probably told one more tiny distraction and it's over. Gruden acted like the call was no big deal but it really was--imagine if you did that to your boss in any other job.
