    Bulldogs pairís intense training day with Antonio Brown AFL

    Link



    Josh Dunkley and Hayden Crozier produced career-best seasons in 2019, but their year has just gotten even bigger.
    The Western Bulldogs pair spent Tuesday (US time) with Antonio Brown — the most controversial sportsman in America right now — during their off-season break abroad.

    The former Pittsburgh Steeler, Oakland Raider and New England Patriot isn’t playing in the NFL at the moment after being released in September following a range of investigations into alleged sexual misconduct.

    Prior to the allegations Brown had become one of the most polarising figures in American football after orchestrating his way out of two consecutive teams, only to land with the Patriots — publicly burning bridges with former teammates, coaches and administrators.

    Foxsports.com.au can reveal Dunkley and Crozier were told to meet Brown and his trainer at a football field in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

    As they pulled up at the field, they received a message with Brown’s address telling them to meet there for breakfast before the session.

    Dunkley, who is well known for his work in the kitchen, cooked breakfast at the Brown compound before they completed a two-hour training session.

    The session was organised by Australian performance analyst Josh Kupner who works at Catapult GPS and with Brown, focusing on footwork and explosion out of the blocks.

    Before the session came to an end, Dunkley and Crozier had the opportunity to defend the seven-time Pro Bowler for 16 routes, where he showed why he is one of the best athletes on the planet.

    They then headed back to the NFL superstar’s house for lunch and a recovery session in the pool.

    Dunkley is about to link up with Western Bulldogs superstar Marcus Bontempelli in America for a training camp at the University of California in San Diego for the second consecutive year.

    The pair spent also spent time inside Nike headquarters in Portland ahead of last pre-season, before producing dominant 2019 campaigns.


    Bontempelli held off Dunkley in a tight finish to win his third Charles Sutton Medal earlier this month.

    Why?
    Our 1954 premiership players are our heroes, and it has to be said that Charlie was their hero.

    The best CBs in the NFL can't cover AB - Josh would have no chance.

    They don’t have to. He’s pushed himself out of the league.
    I get the excitement from the boys, but pretty tone deaf considering the allegations against AB.

    Has he been found guilty of anything?

    On Crozier’s instagram feed, he does a lot better!
    "I'll give him a hug before the first bounce and then I'll run into my pack and give them orders to rip him apart."

    Has a civil lawsuit pending from my understanding plus other allegations serious enough to get him fired from the best team in the NFL after 1 game and no other team will sign him despite him being one of the most talented receivers in the game.

    AB is amazing. But there are multiple complaints (and they are not great) about his conduct and he has been effectively 'run out of town'.

    The players can (and should) do what they want on holiday but the club shouldn't be promoting this association.
    What should I tell her? She's going to ask.
