Yes,wide receiver Antonio Brown's sideline tirade during the Steelers'Week 4 win over the Ravens was a reaction to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger not throwing him the ball for what could have been a touchdown.But the i sue reportedly Youth Stefon Diggs Game Jersey goes deeper than a mi sed opportunity on the field.Brown "has been at odds" with Roethlisberger since the QB "spearheaded"the decisionfor the Steelers to remain off the field for the national anthem before their Week 3 lo s to the Bears in Chicago, according to CBS Sports, and Brown to sing acooler in Baltimorewas an extension of that frustration.WATCH: Brown throws cooler on sidelineFrom CBS' Jason La Canfora:"Roethlisberger spearheaded a decision to reverse course and have the players remain in the tunnel rather than on the sidelines as originally intended, which was the topic of an emotional team meeting the following day. During that meeting, sources said, Brown expre sed his displeasure with how Roethlisberger and others handled the matter, and there was some lingering resentment through the week."Sources said Brown Harrison Smith Youth Game Jersey has felt strongly the urge to kneel in protest during the anthem, but the Steelers have been in unison standing or remaining off the field during the playing of it. Sunday, when the quarterback did not throw to him early in the game, when he was wide open for a po sible TD, Adam Thielen Pro Line Jersey Brown took it personally and believed it was related to his recent dispute with Roethlisberger, according to the sources, which led to his sideline blow-up."Brown on Wednesday apologized for his tantrum. A day prior, Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin had addre sed the matter."It doesnt need to happen,"Tomlin said Tuesday. "It shouldnt happen. Hopefully, he learned a le son through that. A.B. is a competitor, we all know that. It aids him, it aids us. He has to control (his emotions). If not, it can work against him, it can work against us. Everson Griffen Jersey Those are le sons you learn along the way."Roethlisberger also spoke out Tuesday against Brown's actions, saying, "Idont know (if)he needs to react that way. Hes superhuman on the football field, and when that happens it almost brings him back to being a mere mortal, if you will. Because it gets in his head and it just me ses with all of us a little bit. Im not trying to Game Adam Thielen White Jersey call AB out. I just think this is causing a distraction that none of us really need."Brown, who has 30 catches for 388 yards and a touchdown through four games in 2017, was held to just four catches for 34 yards against Baltimore.
