Antonio Brown is the owner of an indoor football league team and everything has gone badly since he took over.
Brown is facing some disturbing accusations of some activity surrounding his Arena football team.
According to TMZ, he made threats of violence towards former coach Tom Menas, as well as locking players out of their hotel rooms.
There was even photo evidence of players’ and coaches’ names on a paper that showed which people would not be allowed in their hotel rooms.
Here are more details from TMZ:
“Eventually, the athletes agreed to suit up when they were shown what appeared to be a payment confirmation. But, following Sunday’s game, Castronova said players were still without their check … and several captains decided to confront team officials on their bus ride back from North Carolina.
Once they got to their team hotel, Ware, the captains, and several other players discovered their room keys no longer worked — and hotel staffers told them it was Brown’s doing.”
Damon Ware, the head coach, stated Brown completed a ‘hostile takeover’ of the team by forcing other owners out to get 95% of the team, and constantly threatening to get physical with those who dared cross him.
Players also haven’t gotten paid after the past couple of games, which is why they even considered sitting out. They still decided to play after being told they were getting paid, which never happened.
When some players stood up to team officials on the bus ride back home, they would find out they had been locked out of their very own hotel rooms once they headed back home.
Hotel staffers confirmed that Brown himself was behind that.
The players struggled to get their belongings out of their rooms, and although they will be getting paid, they no longer have any intention of playing for Brown’s organization.
Brown is one of the most talented wideouts in league history, but he simply cannot escape his own erratic behavior that ultimately got him pushed out of the league.
Now his bad behavior has followed him to another professional league.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
