What time is it? That’s right, 3rd shift starts now.

Duke vs NC is a good game. I wonder how the “blue bloods” will fare now that paying players is apparently an FBI criminal offense.

Nike schools didn’t get caught. FBI hates Adidas.

I’m still not entirely clear on what the alleged crime is.

Severely Concussed

I think anytime you do cash under the table, it enters the wide world of racketeering.

tsv0728
tsv0728

So tax evasion, is that the crime the players/Adidas are being accused of? I mean, outside of RICO prosecution, racketeering isn’t really a crime. it’s just shady business, which is true of almost all business. Tax evasion is the top cause for prosecution in RICO suits, but I haven’t heard anything about it in these cases.

With tax filings not being public record I don’t see any reason X gaurdian can’t file an pay taxes on a payment from Adidas without worrying about being “caught” by the NCAA. And I don’t see any reason Adidas can’t pay said guardian to influence a player legally speaking. It’s against NCAA rules of course, but why would the FBI give AF about NCAA rules. It’s like the FBI investigating how honest I am at my friend poker game in his basement.

I really think an FBI agent is trying to make a name for himself. Get himself some name recognition and run for office somewhere.
Though, obviously not in Kansas or Arizona.

Just got back by a trivia night that was hosted by the guy who does the announcing at Arrowhead during games. My team got 2nd place, which is a bit of a disappointment after winning last year.

Does anyone else love the Mathieu contract structure? Low cap hit this season leaving room for more guys and high cap hit in his last where a cut still saves 15 million. So far best signing of Veach’s tenure in my opinion.

tsv0728
tsv0728

I don’t hate it, but it definitely forces an extension or cut after year 2. He aint making 19mil in yr 3. Still, for his level of talent to have a 2yr contract at a high rate, with a good motivator for both sides to extend in in yr 3. Don’t hate it.

wustl_chiefs_fan

That seems to be the way Veach structures his contracts. Small cap hit early, cutable later.

ChiefOfTheWolfpack
ChiefOfTheWolfpack

Exactly. Most of the hit comes in year 2 and the signing bonus is big enough to entice the player without sticking a knife into the cap if you release

tsv0728

It’s better than the Watkins contract. There is no way either of them play in the 3rd year without an extension, but Watkins will cost the Chiefs 7m to cut but he’ll carry a 21m cap hit.. It gives him a lot of leverage in any potential extension talks, and costs a lot to cut regardless.. Mr Lannisters is 5m, vs his 19m cap hit. He can be cut outright without a ton of damage if he thinks he is worth more than the Chiefs do. I would say this structure signifies Veach getting better at contracts. I would have liked to see Lannister make about 1-1.5m less per year, but the structure is definitely better.

My dog dropped her chew toy in a plastic bag. I can’t decide if I just keep laughing and play it out, or go help her get her head out of the plastic bag before she suffocates.

I built a gaming PC with my son a few months back. This morning I get woke up to my kids crying because they somehow corrupted the shit out of it. Took me all day to get it right. This is why parents can’t have nice things.

Yeesh! What was wrong with it?

Leaf

I think they turned it off during an update because the boot sequence got corrupted. They don’t really “mess” with the computer, so it’s really my only explanation on how it got so screwed up. Auto recovery wouldn’t work. Start up repair wouldn’t work. Couldn’t boot into safe mode. This was the first time I had to be balls deep in win 10 so it presented a few curve balls I want use to.

Rumor has it that this is where the smart Chiefs fans have congregated . They sure as hell aren’t at the old place/ ”You’re a racist”. ”I’ll slap a B…….H I don’t care”. ”I don’t care id someone beat his kid” Sad really

Just kidding, it’s been pretty controlled here. Most of us are just waiting on more evidence. If he’s guilty, he can rot in jail. If not, then he’s still a Chief.

yes. someone called someone else a racist. Another said if a woman struck him (assuming dangerously its a he) he’d knock her out. Like I said, for all of Pete’s “we’re all adults here” talk, it was quite juvenile.

tsv0728

I mean “you’re a racist” shows up in pretty much every online forum ever, so it’s pretty believable. “I don’t care if someone beat his kid” is fortunately somewhat more rare.

That was a terrible commercial for the Big12. Looked cheap AF. Also, it continues to be embarrassing that they only have 10 teams.

Looking through the FA list and ran across Cole Beasleys contract number. 4yr, 29mil with 14.4 gtd. Jesus priest, for Cole Beasley? I’ll never understand how the NFL determines value on a WR.

Dennard might be a better get than we think, IF we get him. Several of the scouting reports that I’ve seen from 2014 indicate that he was considered an outside corner…A press-man guy.

Now he’s a slot specialist. Hmm. So he’s coachable at least…

Does he have untapped potential yet? Hmm.

Three years, 22 million, 15 guaranteed. Would you bite AG?

sydenham
sydenham

Maybe yes, would hope for 2 year term, if he’s versatile and can cover outside then great. Still need to select a CB high in the draft.

go_saleaumua

Agreed

tsv0728

Nope..I’m done biting on converting slot corners for a while. This team needs 1 or 3 real outside corners.

ChiefOfTheWolfpack
ChiefOfTheWolfpack

He’s another body at corner if Fuller or Ward goes down. Depth is important. Regardless of this signing I think we take the top CB left at 29 or even trade up for one.

saints_chiefsfan1979
