Tony Robbins Worked With AB

October 25th, 2020

Counselor to Antonio Brown.

Now Joe has zero clue if any of this is true, but if so, it would explain a lot.

Per a rumor started by radio talk show host Andy Slater in Miami (uh, oh), park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting Bucs quarterback Tom Brady months ago had self-help guru Tony Robbins work with nutcase/cancer Antonio Brown, who the Bucs just got in bed with.

Who is Tony Robbins?

People talk about Robbins like he’s a man of the cloth or a healer of some sort. Joe knows he sold a ton of self-help books and CDs, but Google browsing also shows he’s a motivational speaker, as well. He counts among his clients Oprah Winfrey, Bill Clinton, Wayne Gretzky, Serena Williams and now Brown.

Depending what you believe, it seems Robbins is worth in the neighborhood of $500 million. This self-help/motivational racket is nice work if you can swing it.

To be fair, Slater has broken his fair share of stories in Miami so Joe suspects he’s onto something here. Slater, per NESN in Boston, claims that “earlier this year” Brady had Robbins work with Brown.

Joe is just going to take a leap of faith here. This Robbins doesn’t come across as some slappie who works free. Was Brown cutting this guy checks? Was Brady? Joe would guess if Brady is the guy who called Robbins and sent him to Brown’s house, Brady in some way was paying the freight.

And there you may have why Brady was on Bucco Bruce Arians’ tail so much and so long to sign Brown. Follow the money.

If Robbins can somehow get Brown to screw his head back on straight, imagine all the big-monied clients Robbins could scoop up in the NFL, and maybe other sports as well. (Brown has never really been the same mentally since he got blasted in the head by filthy Vontaze Burfict in the 2016 playoffs. He couldn’t pass concussion protocols to play the next week, a close Steelers loss to the Broncos),

Joe wonders if Brady has a deal lined up where he gets a kickback for every new sports fish client Robbins reels in to pad his portfolio?

Robbins could market himself to both teams and players noting he helped Brown pull himself up from his bootstraps and lead the Bucs to a Super Bowl. Robbins can offer his magic to you to your team or your star diva — for a seven-figure handling charge, travel expenses not included.

(Robbins already has his feet in the pool of the non-basketball association and MLS.)

Of course, the Bucs may need receiver help. Joe’s not doubting that with all the injuries. But couldn’t the team find less toxic, more dependable options to address this need through a trade?

The trade deadline is in nine days.

This backroom intrigue is all very interesting to Joe.

    ain’t nobody can help this Psycho-path Antonio Brown

    signing Brown will destroy this locker room by week 12

  2. Women of Tampa beware Says:

    The only person that can help this psychopath is The Lord himself. HORRIBLE signing Licht. Just when I was starting to forgive you for all the years of being a crappy GM.

  3. Fred mcneil Says:

    I find it very odd that, the teams official web site has not a single mention to the AB signing.

  4. BUC CHEEKS Says:

    Fred, that’s pretty standard for any signing… You hear it the news, you hear it here, it’s literally everywhere before it hits the official BUCS website.

  5. Unbuc'n Believable Says:

    Joe, that’s a great point I have never thought of before. Antonio was always a diva, but after that malicious shot to the head his public behaviors have been much more extreme. Makes him a much more sympathetic. Thank you for the reminder.

  6. #1bucfan Says:

    also I read that even when his suspension is up there might be another one looming over his head. He might not even play this year. I just wonder if the Bucs got some inside source and know maybe he isn’t getting another suspension and that’s why they signed him or they just playing safe and grabbed him even tho there’s another chance for discipline measures

  7. Says:

    The Bucs site usually waits until ink hits paper and they take a photo of it before announcing anything.

  8. orlbucfan Says:

    So, Methuselah has some $$ scam cooked up with this con man. Figures.

  9. SlyPirate Says:

    I just hope AB doesn’t rub off on ME and CG.

  10. Joe in Michigan Says:

    TheBucsAnthem: You talk about Antonio Brown like you actually know him? Do you? Are you his therapist? You’ve done the same thing with Byron Leftwich, acting like you know him when you probably don’t.

  11. Joe in Michigan Says:

    With the team leaders the Bucs have, to say AB will destroy this team by week 12, well, that’s not a very bright prediction.

  12. Go Bucs 72 Says:

    Tony Robbins?? I’m sure AB is totally sane and and making great choices now. GMAFB. AB will be in and out of here in four weeks max.

  13. bucsince79 aka bumaneer Says:

    This is his last chance in the NFL… I have make plenty of mistakes in my life…
    I don’t like what AB has done, however, I believe in allowing 2nd & 3rd chances in life…

  14. Joe in Michigan Says:

    I don’t know anything about Tony Robbins (or care to know), but AB hasn’t been in any trouble lately. So there’s that.

  15. Women of Tampa beware Says:

    @Joe in Michigan… that’s like saying “well Manson hasn’t killed anyone for a while so maybe we should release him” …… sorry not buying it.

  16. 1buc4u Says:

    With this signing I smell a Trade coming soon with one of our receivers.

  17. bojim Says:

    Don’t really care that much about Robbins but he is good at what he does.

  18. Cobraboy Says:

    I broke this news several days ago.

  19. Sport Says:

    It makes sense you haven’t heard of Anthony Robbins or know what he does. He’s well known by those who work on being a better person each day and contribute with high character.

    Things you wouldn’t understand by using Social Media as a source of news or even worse self worth.

    Joe giving Robbins is priceless.

    In BA I Trust!

  20. Cobraboy Says:

    You guys/gals/xirs miss the biggest point in the various dynamics about this signing and future issues with AB:

    If AB knows he is a Beta to Brady’s clear Alpha, all will be well. I, for one, believe that to be the case. AB wants to play with Brady maybe more than Brady wants to play with Brown.

    The ONE guy who is fully in control of AB is Tom Freakin’ GOAT Brady.

    To say AB will fail is to say Tom Brady will fail.

    Do you *really* think Brady will fail to lead a player? When, precisely, has that happened before in Brady’s long and storied career?

    Additionally, if Brady set AB up with Robbins—who IS an excellent motivator, maybe one of the best ever—think that Robbins may be reporting back to Brady about the sessions (there has to be more than just one long one because ALL motivational speakers worth their salt require some modicum of follow-up) and Brady reporting the results to Arians.

    I do NOT think for a nano-second this signing came out of the blue. This has been planned and coordinated for weeks by Brady, perhaps because of the lingering injuries to Evans and Godwin, and lack of veteran depth at WR.

    Brady did NOT come to Tampa to be a virtue-signalling mushball, going all SJW about a player’s past. He came to win a SB and knows g0td@mn well what it takes, and what he needs.

    If AB has his head screwed on correctly, this could be a monster signing.

    I am pulling for that outcome. I will reserve judgment on the guys’ supposedly negative lockerroom impact for if and when it happens.

    The dude has to know he won’t get another credible ride out of the chute again if he fails in his comeback…except on a crappy, desperate team.

  21. Clean House Says:

    Joe’s a straight up AB hater- guy hasn’t even played a game with us yet

  22. Joe in Michigan Says:

    I’m glad that this Tony Robbins has made you the great person that you are, says the person who slams social media as they use social media.

  23. Sport Says:

    Joe in Mich – if you haven’t had the chance to watch Social Dilemma on Netflix. I’d encourage you to. It really fits the craziness going on in the world right now.

    In BA I Trust!

  24. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Sport: Thanks, but I watch very little TV and have never watched anything on Netflix. I do watch the Bucs at a local establishment. It’s great to be watching some good football! So, I raise a glass to OUR team and continued success!
