Ben Roethlisberger calls Antonio Brown’s outburst a ‘distraction that none of us needs’
Antonio Brown wasn’t Ben Roethlisberger’s target on a third down play during Sunday’s Week 4 win over the Ravens. Brown was visibly angry about it on the sideline, and Ben Roethlisberger wasn’t pleased with his top receiver’s reaction.
I just think that this is causing a distraction that none of us really needs, Roethlisberger said Tuesday on his radio show on Pittsburgh’s 93.7 the Fan.
Cousins, playing his future suitors from Santa Clara, throws an interception, which is overturned on replay. He then throws ANOTHER pick by air-mailing a deep ball into double coverage.
That judge had issued an injunction that blocked the suspension, agreeing with NFL players’ union attorneys who argued that the investigation of the allegations in Ohio and subsequent appeal were unfair to Elliott.
The NFLPA said after last Thursday’s ruling that it will request an en banc hearing — a hearing of the full panel of judges within the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans — on behalf of Elliott.
The Monday filing by the NFLPA seeking a restraining order asserts that the decision by the appeals court was made based on a matter of jurisdiction while not analyzing the merits. The filing goes on to say that the Eastern District of Texas has already held [twice] that Elliott will suffer irreparable harm from a suspension, and adds that the NFL’s rejoinder that Elliott will not suffer severe and irreparable harm to his season, career, and reputation as a result of his six-game suspension — nearly half of an NFL season — defies reason in this industry, where players’ careers are precarious and short.
