Tim Benz: Has Antonio Brown changed his mind about Pittsburgh?

Tim Benz

Has Antonio Brown changed his mind about wanting to stay in Pittsburgh?

The Steelers wide receiver continues to show that he is not bipolar. He’s tripolar. Maybe quadpolar — if that’s a thing.

If it isn’t yet, it will be as soon as Brown is diagnosed.

Now — after weeks of turning his nose up at the Steelers and pandering to the Packers and 49ers fan bases — Brown is pleading for acceptance from Steelers fans again.

I’m going to assume A.B. meant “SteelerNation RT (retweet) if u WANT AB in Pittsburgh.” But perhaps he was too busy grooming his blonde mustache to pay attention to his syntax.

Regardless of his insubordination at the end of the 2018 season, that tweet still got 28,000 retweets and 18,300 likes at the time of this post.

And some of the responses were quite entertaining.

And there also were those who are willing to forgive and just straight up want him back.

Pittsburghers … we are a fickle people.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
