This weekend, Pittsburgh Steelers’ Antonio Brown decided to answer six questions from the fans to “clear the air.” Brown decided the most appropriate way to do this was through Twitter. He asked his followers to ask him questions that he would answer truthfully. And to be blunt, not everyone was sure what he was trying to say.

Take it as you read it, but this has got to be some kind of hit at Ben Roethlisberger and the respect Brown has for him. It was a very odd tweet to considering Roethlisberger and Brown have been the ultimate duo for the Steelers. The lack of respect is just flat out troubling.

From watching interviews, Roethlisberger only publicly criticized Brown one time, and rightfully so. If you can’t take constructive criticism from the leader of your team, I’m not sure if you’re going to do well anywhere you land. But again, the egos have a lot to do with that.

This was an interesting take from Brown considering he just about gave up on his team when they needed him. The love for the sport means you love every aspect of it and if seemed like he stopped loving it. No one can ever take away Brown’s athleticism, but to tweet something like really makes you look like a hypocrite.

Well, the fact of the matter is the Steelers control where Brown goes. Brown’s contract isn’t up with the Steelers either and the Rooney’s are smart. Brown won’t end up in enemy territory. As far as the destinations that he would like to end up in, he wasn’t willing to expand on that. As far as mentioning Mr. Rooney in the tweet, no one was really sure what that had to do with anything. If I had to guess, I assume he is saying that when he meets with Mr. Rooney, he will no longer be looked at as a Steeler, but as just Antonio Brown.

The obvious out of this is that he loves/loved Steeler Nation. You can’t deny that Brown did enjoy the fandom in Pittsburgh.

But the “no more” part of the tweet is confusing. Does it mean he doesn’t love Steeler Nation anymore? Whatever it means, he wasn’t clear with his “truths” via Twitter on Saturday.

The whole debacle between Brown and Roethlisberger still isn’t very clear. All we know is that Brown didn’t play against the Bengals because of an argument between him and the quarterback. Or it could have been because of Tomlin treating Brown’s injuries “unfairly” leading up to the game. Whichever side you believe, Brown isn’t the entire reason that the Steelers missed the playoffs.

This is for sure an attempt to make himself look a little better than previously made. He probably had a good reason for his thoughts and comments. But this is another thing we’ll be left in the dark about.
