Antonio Brown blasts Ben Roethlisberger’s ‘owner mentality’ in tweet
Antonio Brown wants to leave the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he appears willing to go scorched earth on his way out.
Brown blasted quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on Twitter Saturday when asked by a fan about the source of conflict between the two. Brown claimed Roethlisberger has an “owner mentality” and feels he can criticize anyone, and players who complain are shipped out of town because of the quarterback’s importance.
No conflict just a matter of respect! Mutual respect! He has a owner mentality like he can call out anybody including coaches. Players know but they can’t say anything about it otherwise they meal ticket gone. It’s a dirty game within a game. #truth https://t.co/MsSyBVd3Ny

In other words, Brown feels Roethlisberger can call anyone out and get away with it, but he’s the bad guy if he calls out his quarterback.
The fact that there’s bad blood between these two was not a secret, and Brown had been dropping some hints in his Twitter likes indicating that he was completely done with Roethlisberger. It’s pretty tough to see them clearing the air after this, especially with Brown trying to force his way out of Pittsburgh.
