Folks, it looks like the system worked.

The NFL and its many franchises routinely appear to have no idea whatsoever of just what to do with a guy like Antonio Brown, who has spent 2019 increasingly disgracing himself and not tarnishing his legacy as much as desecrating it. But it's worth noting one additional thing now that he's been sacked by New England.

His second accuser, revealed in a recent Sports Illustrated article, issued complaints to the NFL that luckily did not fall on deaf ears.

As attorneys Lisa Banks and Debra Katz state, their client was concerned about Brown intimidating her with unwanted messages. The NFL clearly did anything but sweep all this under the rug, and subsequent reporting indicates that the league specifically asked Brown to cease attempting to contact the accuser.

The unnamed woman alleges that Brown made unwanted sexual advances toward her in 2017.

We surely haven't heard the last of this awful, odious saga. But at the very, very least, the NFL, for all its many faults, aren't in denial bout the gravity of the situation at hand.
