- CBS & # 39; Dana Jacobson asked: & # 39; What was the last straw with Antonio Brown? & # 39;
- Belichick refused to answer and said the team was focused on Sunday's game
- Jacobson replied: & # 39; Thank you & # 39; to Belichick's answer, only when the six-time Super Bowl champion head coach stared at her for the next three seconds
- Brown & # 39; s 11-day tenure with the team ended on Friday after being accused of rape and sexual abuse, as well as another claim of sexual misconduct
- Taylor Rooks of Bleacher Report tweeted: & # 39; The look is completely unprofessional & # 39;
- Andrew Marchand, sports media columnist for the New York Post, agreed: & # 39; it's the tough guy from Belichick who dies Dana Jacobson and whom I find particularly weak & # 39;
Already known for his impatience with the media, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is thrown on Twitter because he has looked at a CBS reporter who asked him about his disgraced former player Antonio Brown.
Brown was released by the Patriots on Friday after an 11-day tenure in which he was charged with the federal court for alleged rape and sexual abuse of his former personal trainer in 2017 and 2018.
& # 39; I think I'd be negligent if I didn't ask, what was the last straw with Antonio Brown? & # 39; sideline activity reporter Dana Jacobson asked Belichick prior to Sunday's game against the visiting New York Jets.
& # 39; We focused on the Jets today, & # 39; Belichick replied.
Jacobson replied: & # 39; Thank you & # 39; to Belichick's seemingly polite response, only when the six-time Super Bowl champion head coach stared at her for the next three seconds.
Belichick, who recently rushed out of a press conference after being asked about Brown, was rebuked on Twitter for his impending frown.

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick was slammed on social media for staring CBS reporter Dana Jacobson, who asked him about his disgraced former player, Antonio Brown
Antonio Brown was released by the Patriots on Friday after an 11-day term in which he was charged with alleged rape and sexual abuse of his former personal trainer in 2017 and 2018
New York Post sports media columnist Andrew Marchand focused on Belichick on Twitter
Taylor Rooks of Bleacher Report insisted that Jacobson had no choice but to ask the question
& # 39; It is the tough guy from Belichick who dies Dana Jacobson and whom I find particularly weak & # 39 ;, wrote columnist Andrew Marchand of the New York Post on Twitter. & # 39; He is in a dominant position and it looks really bad. (Oooh, Bill, you're really tough to stare at her). & # 39;
& # 39; The staring is completely unprofessional & # 39 ;, said Taylor Rooks of Bleacher Report. & # 39; Not responding to & # 39; thank you & # 39; is completely unprofessional. If he doesn't want to answer the question, that's his privilege. But it is ridiculous to think that you are being asked above the question. It has been one of the greatest stories. Dana has to ask. & # 39;
It was reported that the last straw before Brown came to New England when it was revealed that he was sending threatening text messages to another prosecutor in the days since her allegations were made public in a Sports Illustrated article.
A 30-year-old veteran, CBS Sports & Dana Jacobson was stared at by Patriots coach Bill Belichick after asking him why the team finally decided to cut Antonio Brown
That woman, unidentified, claimed that Brown invited her in 2017 to paint a mural in his house, where he eventually undressed and approached her while wearing only a towel over his genitals.
In his threatening text messages, Brown accused the second prosecutor of looking for a payday, although she is currently not involved in a lawsuit against the 31-year-old NFL star and has not filed a complaint.
Brown has denied all accusations of sexual misconduct against him.
Belichick had a fight with reporters during Brown's short, turbulent tenure with the team.
Brown signed a $ 15 million deal with the Patriots on September 7 after being cut off by the Oakland Raiders hours earlier in a dispute with the front office.
According to ESPN, Brown is ready to file a complaint with the NFL Players & # 39; Association (NFLPA) hoping to recoup its $ 9 million signing bonus.
Belichick's refusal to even talk about Brown is no surprise, given his history of trivializing scandals around the Patriots.
Anyway, NFL media strongly objected to the treatment of Jacobson's Belichick, who has 30 years of experience.
& # 39; Bill Belichick cannot determine which questions to ask, and trying to intimidate reporters by asking honest questions is a bad look & # 39 ;, wrote David Gardner of Bleacher Report.
& # 39; It is one thing for Bill Belichick to make his way through questions that he does not like about football; it is something completely different for him to be contemptuous and evasive with regard to serious problems outside the field & # 39 ;, read a Tweet from Pro Football Talk.
