Antonio Brown Discloses Role as President of Donda Sports

Staff and Players From Albany Empire Plan to File Class-Action Suit Against Antonio Brown After Reversal of Paychecks

More trouble is arising out of the failed Antonio Brown partnership with the National Arena League (NAL). Less than a week after his team, the Albany Empire was kicked out of the league for not making mandatory payments to the league, players, managers, and coaches found out that money deposited into their accounts have been taken back by the former NFL player. Now the members of the former team are planning a class-action lawsuit against Brown,

According to The Times Union, the head coach of the Albany Empire, Moe Leggett stated that members of the arena football team are planning to file a class-action lawsuit against the owner of the Albany Empire after his latest action.

“I’m frustrated,” Leggett said. “I’m frustrated. I tried to give (Brown) the benefit of the doubt. I tried to work with him. I was trying to be the peacemaker, the mediator to make sure things ran smoothly and just under the radar. But I can no longer do that.”

After players and staff were paid for their last game against Orlando two weeks ago, someone posted a screenshot of the payment being reversed last Wednesday in a group chat. Leggett stated that the picture caused him to check his bank account the next morning and he also saw that the payment he initially received was also deducted from his account.

Leggett also mentioned he made an attempt to contact Brown, Brown’s accountant Alex Gunaris and team president Alberony Denis and was unable to do so.

Fabian Guerra, who played the wide receiver position on the Albany Empire team was picked up by the Massachusetts Pirates, an Indoor Football League team based in Worcester, Mass. Although he had a casual relationship with Brown, he stated he would also join the class-action lawsuit to get his money back.

“I feel like this was his plan all along,” Guerra said. “I feel like he does stuff for social media and to sell his songs. I think it’s just what he does. That’s the type of guy he is. No one trusts him anymore. I see it hard for him to get any future deals going because of how he is as a person.”

After Brown refused to pay the National Arena League the required 1/7 of the league’s operating budget, the team’s board of owners unanimously agreed to terminate the membership agreement of the Albany Empire. No word from Brown or his representatives.
