“I WASN’T CUT — I QUIT!”

BY

WILLIAM A. GRALNICK

Some weeks ago I wrote about ethics and football. The story line revolved around the many time sued Antonio Watson who seems to have extraordinary talent off the field in evading trouble. On the filed he is like Teflon; off it he’s like Velcro. This week Mr. Watson has been elipsed by Antonio Brown of the Tampa Bay Bucs. Mr Brown has a penchant for not playing. The old mantra about playing hurt, taking one for the team, don’ seem to be in his lexicon of football phrases.
