Agree! After that conference seemed like a done deal AB would be gone. Could tell Bill was on tilt. The whole season would’ve been that constantly. Now, probably just the next couple press conferences.
I think the signing bonus being withheld is super questionable. From what I understand, the language says if he does something to miss games, it could be voided. However, he didn't do anything "in theory" yet because he hasn't been put on the exempt list or suspended yet. And, won't be unless signed by another team. So, I think he could have a legitimate argument.
That said, screw AB. He killed one of my fantasy teams.
Unless you are filing criminal charges I really have no reason to believe this or any other similar accusation. But I understand the tactics of going the civil/social route. Why deal with all that pesky scrutiny from the cops and having to prove stuff.
AB is done for, I don’t see any team picking him up. He’s whining about the owners taking away his signing bonus. Dude and his agent are stupid, should’ve shut his mouth. It’s what the lawyers always tells you to do.
Only way I see him getting that money is if he had some dirt on the pats. Goodluck getting that money.
