NFL Star Makes New Year’s Resolution

Posted on | December 15, 2019 | Comments Off on NFL Star Makes New Year’s Resolution


This seems newsworthy:

NFL free agent Antonio Brown had a rocky 2019, getting sacked by the New England Patriots after accusations of sexual misconduct and later apologizing to fans for “inexcusable” behavior.
He’s planning to make changes in 2020, with not dating white women chief among them.
It’s a resolution he announced on Twitter during a week of posts that alternately expressed optimism about his career and frustration with his experiences so far.
Earlier this month, the All-Pro wide receiver asked teams for a chance to continue playing in the wake of multiple sexual assault allegations.
“If I’m ever given the opportunity to play the game that I love, I’m going to work extremely hard to show the world how much I appreciate another chance,” he said in a lengthy Instagram post, in which he also apologized to “anyone who I offended.”
The apology didn’t include any admission of wrongdoing in allegations from two women who have accused Brown of misconduct, triggering an NFL investigation that has yet to conclude. . . .
Brown, who once played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, demanded his release from the Oakland Raiders after the team fined him for missing practice. When the release was granted, he signed a one-year, $15 million contract with the Patriots, which included $9 million guaranteed.

See, this is unfair: If the women who have accused him of “misconduct” had filed police reports, Brown would have due process. But in the #MeToo era, being a millionaire celebrity means you can have your career wrecked by accusations that don’t involve an actual trial, so that you never have the opportunity to prove them bitches be lyin’ on you.

Excuse my, uh, cultural appropriation there. My fluency in Ebonics for some reason doesn’t count for much with the SPLC, but I digress . . .


Antonio Brown has baby mama drama:

Antonio Brown was greeted with at least three police squad cars [Saturday morning] — all because his baby mama didn’t think it’d be a good idea to pick up their kid’s clothes by herself.
The unemployed wide receiver posted a crazy video Saturday morning that showed him filming police officers surrounding his Hollywood, FL property — which eventually ended with him ordering his friend to drop off a bunch of kid’s clothes with one of the cops on the scene.
According to law enforcement sources, we’re told this was at the request of one of AB’s baby mamas — who put in a request with Hollywood PD to have them there for a “civil standby” as she picked up some clothes from him, which belonged to a child they share.
Our sources say they weren’t responding to anything wrong or illegal AB had done … cops were simply there to make sure the exchange went down peacefully and without incident. We’re told no crime was committed, and no arrests were made on either end.
Based on AB’s Instagram story from a few hours earlier … it appears this might have something to do with his baby mama, Chelsie Kyriss … with whom he has 3 kids. . . .
AB is dragging his baby mama’s father into his messy spat, tagging Todd Kyriss in a blistering message … which alleges Chelsie’s been staying in hotels.
Antonio writes, “Come get your daughter @geepak she bringing the police to my house 3 days in a row; when she is block on my gate trying to say she stay here when she been staying in hotels!”
He continues, “You came here thanksgiving stayed in hotel with her! You got her other two kids help her be her Dad !!”

OK, this piqued my curiosity. When all the drama with Antonio Brown going free-agent happened earlier this year, I didn’t pay attention, but this information about his baby mama and her family prompted me to do some Googling, and Chelsie Kyriss . . . well, she’s a case study.

Chelsie has two other children — son Kellen Green, 10, and daughter Brooklyn Green, 8 — from a previous relationship, and these children are apparently being raised by her parents, Todd and Lynn Kyriss. Chelsie’s father is a corporate executive who played football for the University of Nebraska, where he met Chelsie’s mother, back in the 1980s. Exactly what happened to Chelsie’s relationship with the father of her first two children is not known, but by 2013 (when she was 24 years old), Chelsie was involved with Antonio Brown and gave birth to their first child the next year. My research yielded no information about how Chelsie and Antonio met. She’s from an affluent (and 92% white) suburb of Dayton, Ohio, whereas Brown is a Florida native who played at Central Michigan University then spent nine seasons (2010-2018) with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Along the way, Brown sired two previous children of his own: His son Antonio Brown Jr., born to Shameika Brailsford in 2007, and daughter Antanyiah Brown, born to Wiltrice Jackson in 2008.


How did Chelsie and Antonio meet? Is there some kind of NFL All Pro dating app, where would-be baby mamas sign up to offer their services as potential brood mares to millionaire athletes? It’s mystifying to me, because out of all the women in the world who might have wanted to hook up for some no-condoms-needed sex with Antonio Brown, how did he choose Chelsie Kyriss? I don’t think it was entirely coincidental. Has the non-concidental nature of their relationship occurred to Antonio Brown? Because he seems to believe himself to be a victim of bad luck with women, whereas it seems to me his own bad judgment is to blame.

Brown is phenomenally talented. On his very first regular-season play in the NFL, he went 89 yards for a touchdown. He was first chosen for the Pro Bowl in 2012, he has since played in six more Pro Bowls, and twice led the league in receiving yardage. He’s a future Hall of Famer, definitely worth the $9 million a year the Patriots offered him, but his alleged misbehavior off the field led to him being cut loose.

Did I mention that just last year, Antonio Brown bought Chelsie Kyriss a Bentley Bentayga SUV, which retails for about $165,000? Trust me, if I had bought a woman a brand-new Bentley, I’d be kind of angry if she called the cops to my house. Like, that’s the kind of gift that should provide a guy a certain amount of amnesty going forward: “OK, so I cheated on you with a bunch of hoes. How’s that Bentley, baby?”

Perhaps you can understand why Antonio Brown has declared 2020 the Year of No White Women. Would any black woman ever call the cops on a man who bought her a Bentley? I don’t think so.

Snitches get stitches, like they say in the ’hood.

What? More cultural appropriation? Go tell Heidi Beirich at the SPLC I’ve committed another Thought Crime. I can’t help myself.
