Letter to the editor: Let’s move on from Antonio Brown

And we’re surprised? We traded the best receiver in the NFL for Donte Moncreif.

Obviously that did not literally happen; however, last year we had Antonio Brown, problems and receptions alike. This year we have Moncreif.

I’d like to take the yinzer blinders off for a second and truly respect the talent behind the crazy. And to be honest, while five minutes of seeing this guy on “Hard Knocks” or seeing an interview, it’s easy to say this guy isn’t the most intelligent.

But the fact remains that he is talented enough to make his own decisions, at marginal expense to his pocketbook, but from the standpoint of someone working seven days a week just to scrape by, once you’re in the seven and eight figures, does it really matter?

Yes, all of AB’s BS may have been contrived to get him to New England. But, with or without AB, New England is great — as evidenced by our first game.

So, let us move on as well, without hate or mockery, or with those things, because it really doesn’t matter. AB’s gonna do what AB wants to do. And he has the talent to do so.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
