Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants got some company Sunday in the super star wide receivers getting attention for the wrong reasons department. If you haven’t heard, Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers posted a Facebook Live video of Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin calling the New England Patriots “a—h-oles” and other profanities after Sunday’s victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Steelers and Patriots will meet in the upcoming AFC Championship Game. The video has been deleted from Brown’s Facebook page. We know, though, that these things live forever on the Internet.
"When you get to this point in the journey, man, not a lot needs to be said. Let's say very little moving forward. Let's start our preparations. We just spotted these a--h---- a day and a half. They played yesterday. Our game got moved to tonight. We're going to touch down at 4 o'clock in the f---ing morning. So be it," Tomlin said in the video. "We'll be ready for their a--. But you ain't got to tell them we're coming.
"Keep a low profile, and let's get ready to ball like this up again here in a few days and be right back at it. That's our story."
After Tomlin spoke, a few other voices could be heard.
"Keep cool on social media. This is about us, nobody else, man," one said.
"It's a lion's den we're going into this week," said another player of the Patriots' home field, Gillette Stadium. "Keep your mouth shut, and let's play Steeler football.”
Which was worse, Giants fans, Beckham’s Miami party or Brown’s Facebook foolishness?
