-- Antonio Brown’s doctor ripped him earlier this week for farting in his face and now Brown is going back at him, saying his doctor bragged about the incident at the time. 

Brown posted a text exchange with his doctor Victor Prisk to his Instagram story and added, "Do anything for clout."

In the texts, Prisk calls the incident "funny as s--t" and mentions his “nose of steel,” saying, "I was pretty stoic."

Prisk told Sports Illustrated this week he is currently suing Brown for $11,500 in unpaid fees. 

"I'm a doctor and this man is farting in my face," he told SI. "It just seemed childish to me."

-- NFL quarterbacks have been dropping like flies already this season and one referee wants to make sure Tom Brady stays on the field. 

Dolphins linebacker Raekwon McMillan said recently after he made a legal hit on Brady during the Patriots’ win over the Dolphins last Sunday an official told him to “stay off Tom.” 

The Patriots blew out the Dolphins 43-0.
