Kareem Hunt pushes and kicks a woman on video

Recommended Posts

Chiefs way over reacted due to the SJW society we live in today.

 

Hunt should have avoided it.  But being young, probably drinking, late at night?  In the heat of the moment I totally see how he reacted the way he did considering what she was instigating.

 

Hunt got totally screwed here.  To banish a guy from his job over this?  

I have to think that if American society wasn't so left/SJW leaning, he would have not lost his job.


Colts should seriously considering signing him.  In fact to me its a no brainer.

 

A cheap All Pro RB is falling right into your lap.

The Chiefs didn't cut him for the issue with the female.  He was cut because he lied.

No doubt.  And he should be punished. 

 

Best thing he could have done was be up front about it all.

 


At the same time, I think back when I was his age.  I might have done the same thing (lied).  Not proud of that....but you are a guy on your rookie contract...knowing you put yourself in a bad position but at the same time might have only been 25% at fault.

 

I would have been scared of losing my job too.

I'm curious how this will work.  Will the team that signs him have him for the remainder of his rookie contract?

 

Since the Chiefs released him, will his new team sign him to a new contract?

 

It would be ironic if he started making more money next year than he would have if he had stayed a Chief...  :scratch:

First Hunt has to go through waivers. Some team will probably pick him up, and then they pick up his rookie contract. If he clears waivers (highly unlikely) then he is a free agent. But since Hunt has played less than four years he is on the waiver wire, not a free agent. So I believe the Raiders get the first chance to pick him up...

Some lucky team will sign him.   Peterson is old and he was signed.   The video really wasn't that bad.

 

In a sense, true. OTOH, it is clearly a violation of the Personal Conduct Policy of the NFL, and a suspension of some length would have been likely.

We might have had more evidence if Hunt's buddy hadn't snatched that other woman's phone who was recording the incident. No one noticed that I guess at the one minute mark.

 

I saw some body cam video from an investigating officer of the victim showing she said her phone was taken as well. And a SIM card was removed.

Likely would only serve a few games suspension and then back on track.

???  I don't follow.

 

Hill did his bad act in college in 2014, plead guilty in 2015, served 3 years probation, completed an anger management course and also a batterer's intervention program.  After he finished (August 2018), his case was dismissed and even his record was expunged.

Pleading guilty and being punished doesn't mean you're not a piece of feces.

All I can say is that the NFLs Rookie Symposium will now have ANOTHER example of a situation that could have been completely avoided by the wisdom and practice of self-control.

 

This was totally avoidable.

 

Slam the door.... call hotel security and/or the cops, let them haul the girl off to sober up.... and let it be a lesson about the combustibles of the $tar Pro Athlete+Late Night Party dynamic, since you’ve evidently ignored Symposium advice and probably plenty of other advice along the way regarding matters of domestic violence/violence against women.

 

This is the lifestyle some of these guys choose, and yes.... it is perfectly with their right to do so.... but when, not if, when things go bad they HAVE to be able to handle things better than Kareem Hunt did.

Evidently he belted some guy in the face a few months back as well.

 

The last thing Irsay/Ballard should do is risk the excellent chemistry that Frank Reich is shaping by signing Kareem Hunt.

 

Sorry... I’m not a buyer at any price.

True, but some face the music, others try to hide from it.  So in my mind, the amount of steam from the pile is different.

Howie Long just said on the CBS pregame show when they talked about Hunt being picked up by another team, he will be signed as a player not a person. That says a lot about the NFL.

All players are subject to the WW after the TDL. It does go in reverse order...so he would have to pass by 18 or so teams for the Colts to get him. Not likely that happens...especially when some team can get his cheap rookie deal for two seasons. I imagine a rebuilding team would just scoop him up and let him serve out his suspension for the rest of this meaningless season...and then have his rights for the next two years

Ya except he is now falling all over himself and saying how it was his fault.  Simple fact is he needs to just WALK AWAY!! Also the kick st the end was unnecessary and didn’t his mama teach him to never ever hit a woman!!

So in theory, he could now sign with a team at a higher salary then his rookie contract?

I was taught by my mother and father to never hit a woman and I never have or ever will...even though I’ve had a female try and stab me in the face with a screwdriver, I still walked away. My auntie also died as the result of constant beatings from her scumbag husband. 

 

I do however feel that the double standards in this is horrendous. This woman also assaulted Hunt and racially abused him...but nothing???

 

I am in no way defending Hunt in this, it’s despicable what he did and he definitely should be punished. If you completely reversed the positions in all of this though, it would still be viewed the same.

 

No doubt some will try to say I am defending Hunt, but that couldn’t be further from the truth, just think she should also be held accountable for her actions in this too.

I really couldn’t say bud, has she? I’m only going by everything I’ve seen and heard myself on the television. Not seen anyone bring her actions into question and I think that is, because they fear the backlash, of either defending Hunt, or being sexist. As I’ve said in my post, I don’t think any man should be hitting a woman and I would defend woman  if I was to witness it, but that doesn’t make it alright for them to assault men and not be held accountable for it.

The only player in KC Chiefs history to come in as a running back and make a position switch to kicker.

 

We thought Braden Smith was impressive going from guard to tackle, but Hunt did so much more. :)

Umm nothing happened to Hunt as far as criminal charges or anything like that. It’s part of his contract (or the CBA) that he violated this why he got treated like this.  I mean sadly it APPEARS he has issues as it appears they are now investigating 3 incidents of him being violent.  I see a very long long suspension for him and a one year “prove you can not be stupid” deal when it’s done.

Yeah, it definitely seems like he has anger issues, needs to learn to walk away. Hopefully he can address these and not waste the incredible talent he has been blessed with.

From where I stand he got 3 strikes, and was still allowed to stay in the batters box.

 

Strike 1, Jan. 2018 -

http://www.tmz.com/2018/12/04/kareem-hunt-video-nightclub-fight-kansas-city-chiefs/

Victim wanted to press charges, none filed (complaint filed)

 

Strike 2, Feb 2018 -

http://www.tmz.com/videos/0_exjrtvg5/

Victim wanted to press charges, none filed-

http://www.tmz.com/2018/12/01/kareem-hunt-chiefs-victim-police-press-charges-body-cam-surveillance/

 

Strike 3, June 2018 -

http://www.tmz.com/2018/06/06/kareem-hunt-in-alleged-physical-altercation-at-ohio-resort/

No charges filed because victim had eventually stopped cooperating?

 

Any/all could very well be considered PCP violation(s).  Said Player not charged, nor any action form the NFL on any of these incidents... until... TMZ pays off someone for the hotel video.  Now the NFL will likely have to 'overreact' (maybe not unlike they had to in the /Ray Rice Scenario) in response for their reactive nature and subsequent alteration to their domestic abuse policy.

 

I don't know, maybe get ready for possibly another round of court cases for inconsistent punishment or other due process 'whatever they come up with'?

    • Spent most of my adult life working at Edwards AFB.... Chuck and a handful of test pilots allowed our Air Force to make incredible strides putting their lives on the line there.... pushing the boundaries of the planes they flew.   It was nice to see him get a game ball after we beat  the Texans.     
    • I also watched "some" of the pro bowl & Luck did look bad. But it was the skills challenge that was most telling & depressing.  Now surely Luck isn't gonna come out throwing rockets in a silly contest, but the lack of zip on his passes & the horrendous accuracy was shocking.  He may have had the lowest score in history.  Maybe hit the closest targets twice.    That, coupled with the bad playoff game, had me really worried about arm fatigue or a dead arm. Maybe understandable coming off his first year back from surgery?  But maybe there's more there???  Then he skips OTA's &, correct me if I'm wrong, his first pass of his first training camp practice vs the defense was an interception...   Then he didn't practice for a while.  Then came out and "gave it one more go" before the Bengals game & retired the following week.  I doubt Luck walks away from the game because of an ankle injury unless major surgery was the only option.  I think it may have been the shoulder.   And because of that & the way he retired, I don't know if we could get two firsts. I can see a first and a second though. Then again, Elway might give us that and then some...    Regardless, barring this team completely coming off the rails or JB getting injured, I don't think you could just give Luck the job back.  I don't know if the majority of the players would just be ok with that.  This is becoming JB's team as each week passes.  If he gets us to the playoffs & wins a game, I think it'll be tough to take the job from him.     Look at the joy with which Doyle celebrates when we score. The way he looks to JB & congratulates him.  Same for the lineman. It's a tight brotherhood in that locker room. And Luck isn't in there everyday like JB is & how can they trust that Luck has that fire back burning in his belly?  Luck may have gotten Drew Bledsoe'd.    If he comes back, you move him to the NFC for the most ransom you can get. Then we finish putting the key pieces to our Dynasty in place with those picks...  
    • I agree.  Hopefully Turay bounces back healthy and we bring in another young DE or 2, which could reduce the amount of snaps Sheard/Houston get next year, but they are both still playing at a high level and are good character guys and all-around football players.  Sure can't hurt to have our young guys get groomed by those 2.   Since Sheard has been back, it seems like there's been significant improvement in Autry's game as well.
    • He was stationed at Fort Benjamin Harrison in Indianapolis (as per that article).  I found he lives in California now, but then googled "Is Chuck Yeager a Colts Fan?" and came up with this:    https://blog.ticketmaster.com/indianapolis-colts-team-fans/   "The team counts among its loyal followers a number of big-time celebrities, including: • Billy Bob Thornton • Famed test pilot Chuck Yeager • Actor Haley Joel Osment • Comedian/former talk show host David Letterman • Actress Elisabeth Shue • Rob Lowe"   _____________ Pretty cool, Mr. Irsay!
