Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: September 10, 2019 (Pt. 1)


AND SPORTS ANYTIME ON KDKA.COM. RIGHT NOW IT IS THE NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL. PITTSBURGH’S BEST SPORT SHOW IS ABOUT TO BEGIN. CALL US OR TWEET US. WE HAVE THINGS TO TALK ABOUT. ON THE IRELAND CONTRACTING NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL. GOOD EVENING EVERYONE. YOU CAN CALL US ON THE BORDAS AND BORDAS HOTLINE WHICH IS 412-575-2600. OR YOU CAN TWEET US. WE HAVE A LOT OF BREAKING NEWS. I’M SURE YOU WANT TO COMMENT ON. FIRST COMMENT TODAY BEGAN WITH THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS SIGNING ANTONIO BROWN. HE WAS TO MEET WITH THE MEDIA TODAY BUT THAT DID NOT HAPPEN. TONIGHT WE FIND OUT THERE WAS A LAWSUIT FILED IN SOUTH FLORIDA. BY ONE OF ANTONIO BROWN’S FORMER TRAINERS. HER NAME IS BRITTANY TAYLOR. SHE ACCUSES HIM OF THREE OCCASIONS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT. PART OF THE LAWSUIT INCLUDES EMAILS AND TEXT MESSAGES THAT SHE PROVIDED FROM HIM TO SUPPORT HER ARGUMENT. TONIGHT ANTONIO BROWN’S DEFENSE TEAM HAS SPOKEN UP AND SAID, HE WILL PROVE HIS INNOCENCE. THIS IS A CLAIM TO GET MONEY. WE WILL SEE HOW IT GOES. AT THIS POINT, ANTONIO BROWN IS THE PROPERTY OF NEW ENGLAND. HE IS SUPPOSED TO PRACTICE FOR THE FIRST TIME TOMORROW. TODAY, TO GET ANTONIO BROWN UNDER THE CAP AND TO MAKE ROOM THEY TRADED DEMETRIUS THOMAS TO THE JETS FOR A SIXTH ROUND PICK. IT SEEMS TO FOLLOW ANTONIO BROWN NO MATTER WHERE HE GOES. HE DID EVERYTHING HE COULD TO ORCHESTRATE HIS RELEASE FROM OAKLAND. HE SIGNS WITH NEW ENGLAND. IT DOES NOT SOUND GOOD. THE PROBLEM THAT ANTONIO BROWN HAS, ALL OF THESE THINGS CONTINUE TO SEEMINGLY FOLLOW WHERE HE THREW THE FURNITURE OFF THE THING. HE CLAIMED THEY ARE SETTING ME UP. THERE WAS A COUPLE OF OTHER INCIDENTS LIKE THAT. THERE HAVE BEEN ACCUSATIONS LOCALLY OF HIM STIFFING PEOPLE FOR BILLS. THERE IS ALWAYS SOME REASON WHY. NOW THERE IS THIS. AT SOME POINT, WHERE THERE IS A LOT OF SMOKE THERE HAS TO BE A LITTLE BIT OF FIRE. ANYBODY THAT IS CELEBRATING THIS , GIVEN THE NATURE OF THE CHARGES, YOU NEED TO REEVALUATE YOUR LIFE. IT IS NOT A GOOD THING. BY THE SAME TOKEN, HERE IS A GUY WHO HAS SEEMINGLY ACTED AS IF THE RULES DO NOT APPLY TO HIM. ALWAYS. IT SUGGESTS TO ME THAT IT IS NOT HARD TO BELIEVE THE ACCUSER. TO ME, WHEN I LOOK AT THIS THING, ROGER GOODELL SUSPENDED BEN ROETHLISBERGER FOR VERY SIMILAR KIND OF ACCUSATIONS THAT NEVER RESULTED IN CRIMINAL CHARGES. IF I AM ROGER GOODELL, TELL ME IF I AM WRONG, I LOOK AT WHAT ANTONIO BROWN IS DOING. AND I SAY HE IS BAD FOR OUR SHIELD. WHAT HAVE I BEEN SAYING? I KNEW HE WAS ORCHESTRATING THE STUFF. IT IS THE INTEGRITY OF THE LEAGUE. IT IS ALSO STUFF THAT ROGER GOODELL HAS BROWNS TO SUSPEND HIM. I WOULD SUSPEND HIM. I WOULD SAY, YOU ARE SUSPENDED FOR FOUR WEEKS. IF I HEAR ANYTHING FROM YOU ON ANY OF YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS, IT WILL BE TWO MORE GAMES. AND ONE MORE, IT WILL BE A YEAR . THAT IS HOW YOU HANDLE A GUY LIKE HIM. ROGER GOODELL HAS THE POWER TO DO THAT. WHEN HE SUSPENDED ROETHLISBERGER, I THINK HE SUSPENDED HIM AS MUCH TO TRY TO BE A WAKE-UP CALL. THIS WHOLE THING WITH THESE TWO ACCUSATIONS, ONE IN VEGAS AND ONE IN GEORGIA. THERE IS OTHER STUFF GOING ON. THE MOTORCYCLE WRECK. YOU NEED TO SLOW DOWN. I THINK THAT WAS PART OF THE MESSAGE THAT HE SENT TO BEN ROETHLISBERGER. THIS IS A GUY THAT NEEDS SOMEBODY TO PUT A STOP LIGHT UP. IT SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED BEFORE. NOW, HE IS HURTING THE INTEGRITY OF THE LEAGUE. HE IS HURTING THE REPUTATION OF THE LEAGUE. AND THOSE THINGS, TO ME, I THINK HE SHOULD BE SUSPENDED. WE WOULD LIKE TO GET YOUR COMMENTS. YOU ARE INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT. THIS WILL PLAY OUT. THAT DOES NOT MATTER IN THE NFL. THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE THIS FOR THE SAME REASON I’M TALKING ABOUT. IT ATTACKS THE INTEGRITY OF THE LEAGUE. HE ORCHESTRATED THAT. I WOULD HAVE LIKED AN INVESTIGATION. I STAND BY THAT. THEY CHOSE TO LOOK THE OTHER WAY. THIS CASE, THEY SHOULD NOT LOOK THE OTHER WAY. ALTHOUGH THEY HAVE ON OTHER OCCASIONS. WE WILL SEE WHAT THE NFL DOES. THE PIRATES ARE PLAYING TONIGHT. THE REPORT COMES OUT TODAY. THAT TITLE CLICK AND VASQUEZ GET INVOLVED IN AN ALTERCATION WHICH RESULTS IN CRICK NEEDING SURGERY FOR A BROKEN FINGER . CRICK , HE HAS BEEN INVOLVED WITH THE BULLPEN COACH. I DON’T KNOW WHO IS TO BLAME. THIS CANNOT HAPPEN. WITHIN A TEAM. THIS IS ONE OF THE SEASONS WERE THE PIRATES — THERE IS PROBABLY NO TEAM THAT WANTS THIS TO GET OVER QUICKER THAN THE PIRATES. THAT IS THE DUMBEST STORY I HAVE HEARD. HE IS OUT BECAUSE HE GOT INTO A FIGHT AND NOW WE NEED SURGERY. ON HIS HAND. WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT? WHAT IS GOING ON? WE NEED TO GO FOR A BREAK. WE ALSO HAVE YOUR CALLS. PLENTY COMING UP ON THE IRELAND CONTRACTING NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL . ON PITTSBURGH’S CW.
