He was suspended by the league for 6 games, later reduced to 4, for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

I would think this is causing a lot of the additional issues. I'm sure there were problems before this, but this hit increased the frequency and severity of them.

What is amusing about his tweet is that AbusingB****84 has been reneging on contracts and not paying his bills for years. Will he finally pay up?

Last week a personal trainer sued the flamboyant former Pittsburgh Steeler in federal court in Florida, claiming that he raped her last year and accosted her in 2017 in Pittsburgh. In July a Florida chef sued him, claiming the wide receiver failed to pay him for a $38,500 bill after he cooked for Brown at a private event in Osceola County during the Pro Bowl weekend in 2018.

Earlier this month, Robert Leo of Ross, a former man Friday to Mr. Brown, sued his onetime boss in Allegheny County for nearly $17,000 in unreimbursed credit card expenditures he claims were made on the athleteís behalf. And a Monroeville orthopedic surgeon and bodybuilder, Victor Prisk, also sued Mr. Brown here, accusing the wide receiver of stiffing him for $11,500 for services as a wellness coach at $500 an hour.

I'm not sure who's the bigger scammer: the millionaire athlete who doesn't pay his bills, or the "wellness coach" who charges $500 an hour.

The XFL said they have no interest either.

I like this story about Brown blocking a fake XFL Twitter account. Petty!

I have to imagine that Goodell is thrilled with the news.

Can he make it impossible for Brown to come back?

Indefinite suspensions are a thing in the NFL so he could, but right now he i donít think he has to, and probably wonít while the league is investigating.

He can place AB on the Commissioner's Exempt list.

I donít know if that applies here.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...er-exempt-list
The Exempt List applies to a teamís roster. Brown isnít on a roster. It wouldnít mean anything right now. If a team signed him, it could be used.

I believe he can be suspended by the league without being on a team though.
