But let's talk about how awful Jim Irsay is...

hey look, the Patriots being caught on video again doing something illegal. 

When I first read this story, I thought it was just an older man with possible mild cognitive impairment doing what a lot of guys do. But this is a lot bigger than I originally thought. Kraft's role i

Umm I said it was illegal... I’m more curious if he had an itch to

scratch why not just jump on your jet to Vegas where it isn’t illegal.

 

It's illegal in Vegas by local law but there are other places in Nevada where it's perfectly legal.  

 

He could also go to another country too where it's legal.  

 

And he's also got the "sugar baby" option too.  Given the apparently open relationship he has with his GF, I doubt she would mind.  

 

There are certainly smarter ways he could have gone about this.

What really bothers me is that fact he feels he did nothing wrong

Umm being caught with a ton of drugs in your car and being well a * to the cops is very much different than an old man trying get himself a little something something.. lol.  Be honest Itsey had a problem and if I remember right he dealt with it, this is simply a case of a man wanting some.. neither bother me that much.

Itsay was suspended? 

Sounds like it's much worse than that.  From what I've seen, it looks like he was part of a human trafficking ring and he solicited someone to commit prostitution.  This isn't just an old guy trying to have some fun.

if that true and he has to register and not be near kids does that mean he can not even go to his own games

This is sad situation for all involved.  I will be interested to see if Kraft knew that there was human trafficking going on at this venue.   Also, will be interested to see how all of this pans out as it is only a day or so old and "facts" and denials can change as time goes on and we get a better picture of what happened.

I read the article, if I am reading it right. (I am super sick so I may not be lol) it sounds he just solicited a woman for sex and isn’t one of the ring leaders of the trafficking ring.

He might just be trying to maintain his innocence.  

 

Regardless if he was just trying to pay what he believed was a willing adult woman for sex I don't personally think it's a huge deal.  On a religious/moral level I find it immoral but it's not the kind of act that I want to see my tax dollars being spent for the cops to track down, have these people put on trial, and see some imprisoned for it.  

 

Obviously if he was involved in human trafficking then things are much much deeper and he deserves prison.

Part of a large International trafficking ring too...

Too early to say for now since the story is developing, but this has the potential to be REALLY bad

 

Agreed we don't know much yet.  This could be a simple case of him just trying to get some sex for money from an adult woman which while illegal isn't super huge.  

 

Or it could be him being involved in human trafficking or underaged prostitution which would be massive and would likely not only involve prison but also involve a forced sale of the Patriots.

Irsay had a problem, a very bad problem.  That he seemed help for and I think he has been sober ever since?  I personally never bashed the man for it, we all have our demons. (That’s not to say I liked him I always found him annoying but that’s me.)

 

as for this this I really don’t care.  Prostitution been around forever and the fact we still have it illegal just allows the wrong people profit off of it. 

The operative word here is illegal.

 

Whether you think it should or should not be, does not come into play.

No, he would just hand over the Patriots to his son Jonathan Kraft and “retire”.

Maybe, maybe not.  If and this is a HUGE IF, he's busted with UNDERAGE girls and human trafficking, no way in heck the league lets him do that. the other owners can force the sale of the Patriots and will if that is the case.

Not in the eyes of many 

Really?  Then I feel sad for them! If you can’t see a BIG difference between buying and selling people make a profit (that was sex traffickers do) and someone just wanting some physical attention and paying for it..

Reading this news is probably more fun for us Colts than Kraft probably had..... ok maybe not. haha

He’s a billionaire if he thought he was going be arrested and charged with that he flee to a non extraditing country.. he didn’t..

Yeah, there is a difference apparently kids must be involved and there is a difference between liking kids to really liking kids.

And likely very little punishment from the league.  

 

While this gives Colts fans something to crow about for a bit, but if that's really all it was, what Irsay did IMO is worse.  Soliciting an adult willing prostitute doesn't hurt anybody or create the potential for harm.  Irsay driving around loaded up on pain meds could have gotten someone killed.

he probably didn't know he was going to be.  And they could have suspended his passport as part of the indictment.

Agreed.. but again Irsay had a problem and the incident help him see it and fix it.. so I’m not going condemn the man for making a mistake or a lapse in judgement.

Kevin L. Orpurt drove through terre haute on pain med and nothing happen to him. Heck he ran over the mayor Harley Davidson  when he found out he was having affairs with his wife

Those nations are not going to let you just stay there just cause you are on the run from the law in the US.  

 

You have to have a prior citizenship there for them to let you stay.  Either that or it has to be something political that embarasses the US government.  

 

It's not the second and I think Kraft is only a citizen of the United States.  So he couldn't just run from the law by flying to another country that doesn't extradite.

    • I'll pile on you here. Ballard has put together a great team since taking over in 2017. We lost Luck (I blame a combination of Grigson and Luck himself for this), and that ruined 2019 and stunted our growth in 2020 with a one-year stopgap in Rivers. We have Wentz now. He's 28 years old. We'll get a decade out of him to compete if he's above-average or better. He has the chemistry with Reich.   Remember, if Ballard hadn't built a solid team before getting Wentz after Luck retired, we'd be back to 2012. However, because Ballard did the foundation first, we can now try and compete again for a decade with Wentz immediately. We have a few weaknesses, but we have the draft and the rest of the offseason to fill them. We do need to improve our DEs. We can still sign Houston back and/or draft an EDGE in the first two rounds. CBs we re-signed Rhodes and Carrie, and Ballard has shown interest in Newsome, Farley, and Asante Samuel. We could easily take a CB at 21, or trade down and get one. We will get a couple starters out of the draft.    I wanted an EDGE too, and thought it was a mistake to sign Hilton back and not an EDGE in FA, but we have to re-sign our own as well, and a 5 year deal to an EDGE for 12-15 million a year will take away money short and long-term. We have a reduced salary cap this year. The rest of that money will go towards draft picks, offseason depth signings after the draft and UDFA's, and Braden Smith, Darius Leonard, and Quenton Nelson.
    • I believe he was. However, this is like year 2 of Tell's contract and development, so bringing Carrie back will give him an additional year to develop. Maybe he makes the team, maybe he gets placed on the practice squad. I have a feeling he isn't going to be expected to play too much this year unless he proves it in OTA's and preseason, or unless there are a couple injuries.    Plus, Kenny Moore plays slot and TJ Carrie is a backup slot CB. So if Moore is specifically hurt, Carrie could probably fill in Moore's spot 75% as good as he could. That alone is worth $2 million this year.
    • I did wonder in 97 after he took full control of the team, how close were we to a Jim Irsay owner/gm situation? It honestly had to be a powerful temptation. 
    • Surprised he’s back.  I thought he was brought in last year because of Tell opting out but i am not mad or disappointed he’s back.
    • So far, so good.  He bought us some time at CB, bolstered the OL depth, added an exciting prospect at QB,  And even tho 1 year deals, i thought Rhodes and Carrie was big.  Also TY and Mack.  I liked what we brought back.  I think Houston is a good possibility too.  If that happens i feel prettygood going into draft.   Ballard isnt done. Its a good draft for WRs and OL.  This not only helps us in draft, but there will be some interesting cuts later at the positions as well.     I’m ok with us being quiet early on for the BIG contracts that rarely cashin.   Sign our own, make wise fiscally prudent choices that fit our scheme and locker room, and provide depth at all positions for competition.  Looks to me like he’s doing just that.  Now going into draft focus on LT and edge rush primarily and maybe try to improve WR , DL, and TE positions. Maybe target CBfor future. Other than that, i think the roster is pretty exciting.
