    There is going to be a long interview on the 6 pm news on KDKA with Bob P. with Ben.

    Breaking his silence on the matter.

    Yeah... how many faces does AB have? What a garbage teammate he turned into.

    not too long ago....



    Wait until the honeymoon is over for Brown with the raiders, it's going to be ugly between him, Gruden and Carr.

    This whole thing was a scapegoat for AB’s real motive: money. The Steelers had already paid out his guarantees, and he had 3 unguaranteed years left on his deal. I believe that this was a scheme hatched by Rosenhaus, and the other crap was just a convenient excuse.

    Ben should have never said anything more about AB. Time to move on. Let bygones be bygones.

    Right it's exactly about money, the whole thing. Never thought about how the Rooney's had him on the cheap, and advanced a lot money to keep him happy. Then made him the highest paid WR, until he wasn't anymore, then it became an issue. But, he was signed and had to make up a way to get out of town. Throwing Ben under the bus became his method to get traded and out of town

    AB can't get the Steelers out of his head. I believe he is remorseful about the upcoming season & that makes him angry. Should be building his brand but that is probably a sunk ship after his temper-tantrum to get paid. Again.

    When he was the only one constantly talking he could spin it any way he wanted. Now he has got to go way negative otherwise when the truth comes out he would look bad. So now he really has to burn bridges in attempt to not seem like the problem.

    Strangely enough other than a mention about AB not accepting the apology in the Trib. There is no big dust up on the beat writer's twitter feeds.

    Either that or the Raiders tampered with him and put ideas in his head about a bumper new contract. Neither would surprise me.

    Purely a PR move.

    Ben addresses it early, admits some guilt, and makes a slight "apology."
    He can now move on and never speak of it again. The issue is now officially over. If brought up he can point to this interview and say that he's addressed it.
    Good move.

    He wants the Steelers back like an ex gf.. He misses them.. Wants to cuddle up with a terrible towel again because he realizes it's the best thing that's ever happened to his sorry ass

    This. He played it perfectly. Played it so well that I wonder if he had PR help.

    Cut it off at the pass, took the high road, took the blame and AB already looking like more of an ass with his two face tweet.

    My advice to Raiders fans. Stock up on plenty of popcorn. Chucky, AB, Vontaze. I doubt they even make it through training camp unscathed.
