The Jay Graves Report

Mike Tomlin handled the Antonio Brown foolishness like a straight G! “O.G.”

On Tuesday Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin addressed the foolishness was Antonio Brown streamin” him live on Facebook. For those of you that have been sleepin’ under a rock with some Beats head phones on. The Steelers wide receiver pulled out his freakin’ cell phone and started streamin’ Mike Tomlin’s post-game locker room speech with ole boy cursin’ and talkin’ like duns do in the privacy of their own homes. Tomlin was essentially speakin’ to family when he was addressin’ his team after the divisional playoff win. Antonio Brown violated every code of conduct imaginable; from hood protocol to corporate protocol playa.

This is what Mike Tomlin had to say, “I’ll be bluntly honest here. It was foolish of him to do that. It was selfish for him to do that, and it was inconsiderate of him to do that. Not only is it a violation of our policy, it’s a violation of league policy – both of which he knows. There are consequences to be dealt with from his perspective. We will punish him. We won’t punish us. And we will do that swiftly, and we will do so internally.”

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! I liked the way ole boy laid it out! Especially when he said, “We will punish him. We won’t punish us.”  That was straight up gangsta!! O.G. Bobby Johnson style gangsta. In other words, he said, “were gonna deal with this fool but we aren’t gonna hurt our chances of winnin’ by sittin’ him down. Oh, he’s gonna play but that dun is gonna pay!!!” That’s the realest joint ever!!

I’m glad to see Tomlin fired up about it too because it was ignorant of Brown to do!! Plus he’s a GROWN TAIL man like my momma used to say. And that’s the edited version. Mike shouldn’t have to tell a boy not to turn his phone on and stream a private conversation to the world. The NFL shouldn’t have to have a rule in place that says no social media 90 minutes before kick off and 9- minutes post-game. It seems like a grown man would know how to conduct himself but Antonio proved to the world that he doesn’t.

I wrote in the crazy Hot Joint entitled “Loyalty” on yesterday that the first rule you learn growin’ up in a black man’s house in ANY HOOD, USA is “What’s happens in my house! Stays in my house!” It wasn’t the bureau of tourism in Las Vegas that came up with that playa. Every daddy and momma in the ghetto gave that speech every night right before somebody was about to get torn up for actin’ a fool. Trust me! If I heard it once I heard it 10,000 times because I was normally the one gettin’ torn up.

One thing about it, Bill Belichick isn’t havin’ these types of problems in his locker room. Naw playa, nobody’s violation’ the rules in his joint! Not even ole crazy and off the chain Gronk and that’s why the Steelers are goin’ to get torn out of the frame this weekend. That’s the difference between duns that know how to win versus duns that are pretendin’ on knowin’ how to win. Stop me when I start lyin’!
