Brown has no trouble meeting Haley

Antonio Brown today Tweeted - he's a Tweeting fool - a photo of he and new offensive coordinator Todd Haley in the Steelers locker room.

Brown just got back into Pittsburgh yesterday after his whirlwind tour of the country and met up with Haley in less than a day.

He did this by, you know, going down to the Steelers offices and seeking him out.

Yet somehow, Ben Roethlisberger hasn't been able to find Haley. Go figure?


Sounds like a little more drama from the king of drama.

I have a lot of respect for Roethlisberger the player. But I could do without all of the other stuff. (Me too, I'm sick of little Benjie's punk attention getting act. Either he grows up or we trade him as far I'm concerned. If he screws up just one more time then I hope we get him out of town on the next plane. - mesa)

Then again, is it Roethlisberger making a big deal out of not talking to Haley yet or certain segments of the media?

So many of the issues with Roethlisberger are media driven as guys try to back their own agendas.

I'll be on ESPN 970-AM from noon to 1 p.m. Sunday at the Pittsburgh Auto show talking Steelers football.

Alright...

If there's one guy that's getting tired of this drama, it's me. But Ben needs to go shake his damn hand, give him a smile, and get it over with. I don't think he should have to go meet him as soon as he's in town as some people suggested, but it's about time something happens.

What, you going to wait until August?

Just meet with him Ben, this drama is getting old, and although it may be the media fueling it, it would end everything if you just met with him and put on your smile.

Think its being hyped as whoever contacts who first is the one who blinks.

I think Haley will reach out after he has all his plans in place of how he is gonna structure the offense. If Ben doesnt do it first. Brown is doing the smart and classy thing for a guy that is wanting to solidify his spot as the #2 WR.

Because he's the leading player on offense, he's got more to learn and figure out than the other players.....Time to grow up Ben. Tomlins got a new daddy for ya, and wether you like it or not, you must do as he says. Get over it princess and go do your chores.

What are you, the back seat driver? Come on man. I honestly don't see anything that really hint's at him needing to grow up. He hasn't met with Haley. Sure, it'd be nice if he did and just got it over with, but that doesn't mean he should? Right now he's dialed in on getting himself in better shape, and he's already started workouts. Well before most other players, I might add.

When it comes time to start learning the new system, he'll meet up with Haley. Maybe he'll meet him sooner? That's what i'd like to happen, just to end this Media garbage. But to be honest, the media will always find a way to blow something out of proportion, and the fan's will be right here ready to take the bait and bring it to a whole new level. Especially fan's who already dislike a player and always have something negative to say, no matter the situation.

Ben may be a team-captain, and even the emotional leader of this team, but when it comes down to it, he throw's the ball. The only thing he needs to focus on is improving himself at his position. That's what the QB coach is for. Sure, he needs to meet Haley, but not more than anybody else on the offense does.

Trust me man, i'd like to see Ben and Haley meet up and get on the same page early, but he doesn't really need to. He just doesn't. Concentrate on getting healthier, that's what's important. They'll meet up before long, as they'll have to get on the same page with the new offensive set. It's obvious. The media just blow's it up.

If Ben is supposed to be a team captain and leader on this team, then he should lead and go meet Haley and get it over with. Even if it is the media blowing it out of proportion, it's obviously becoming an issue and if he wanted this to go away and smooth over he'd just meet with him already. The fact that he still hasn't after all of this drama has begun to surface tells me he IS being a bit of a drama king.

It's not just the media talking about it either. Steelers fans are also forming opinions on it good, bad, and indifferent and I'd think a team leader, if he cared, would try to put the whole thing to rest to nip it in the bud. The message boards (this one included) are getting lit up by this controversy. Why not just end it if it's a non-story?

I don't want to hear that Ben's too busy right now. That's a crock and a cop-out. Sack up and do what's right for the team chemistry and meet the guy already. It's the right and smart thing to do as a franchise player/leader to get on the same page and let the fans know you give a crap. Stop sulking Ben! Bruce is gone and he isn't coming back.

Absolutely correct. Benjie the drama punk could end this right now and all he is doing is playing the media for attention.These are not the actions of a team captain.
