Kareem Hunt Tried to Tell the Truth, He Just Forgot It

 56 replies

Moving on from Kareem Hunt just got a whole lot easier.

Yesterday in butthole of Ohio ie. Cleveland, Kareem Hunt was surrounded as he spoke to the media eager to promote his redemption. Much of what he said sounded very familiar. It wasn’t him, making better decisions, he’s got to earn trust, etc etc. Basically repeating the same things he’s said every time he’s been in front of the media since he was cut by the Kansas City Chiefs, including his very first interview just days after. For Chiefs fans following the saga much of his 18+ minute Q’n’A sounded like a broken record of regurgitated cliches.

That was, until towards the end, when he was asked about how he convinced John Dorsey that he wouldn’t repeat the same mistakes he made with the Chiefs. Hunt responded:

“I know I am not going to mess this up again. The Chiefs…I didn’t really lie, I just told them what I knew at the time. And when the video came out, it was like me seeing it too for the first time. Again, it was so long ago. They felt like I lied, so that’s all right.”

Ummm…what? I’m sorry Kareem, but that just doesn’t add up, are you saying you didn’t lie to the Chiefs?

“I didn’t tell them everything. So really I take it as I kind of did.”

You “take it” as though you didn’t lie? Or you did? The confusion, you’re not helping it any…can you at least tell us why you didn’t tell the Chiefs everything?

“I tried to tell them as much as possible.”

Chiefs fans have had every right to be upset about Hunt getting signed by the Cleveland Browns, and the Chiefs essentially getting nothing in return. Until now. If you still wish Kareem Hunt was a Chief, go read his words again. He still can’t bring himself to be honest about what happened with the team. This is a person with zero accountability for his own role in getting released by the team, let alone his actions throughout multiple physical confrontations. Not that it matters, because there’s nothing anyone can do about it now.

So I’m done being mad about Kareem being an idiot, getting cut, playing for the Browns, etc. All of it. I simply don’t care any more. But I can tell you this one thing; in the future when we play the Browns, I hope he wakes up feeling it the next day.

I hate these Tyreek Hill and Kareem Hunt threads, if you try to give support to these players, everybody says you support their past actions.

I want to believe people can change, when I was young, I never hit a women, i used to fight, drink, race cars. I did it to be cool, i wasn’t cool, i was a fool. People who knew me when i was young, might say i was a bad person. The person I was when I was young was not the real me, that was the me, I wanted people to see.

Kareem and Tyreek situation is different because Kareem is out with his friends when he makes stupid decisions, while Tyreek is behind closed doors. I don’t know what kind of man, and father Tyreek and Kareem want to be. I want to believe they can change, and deserve another chance to play in the NFL

I understand my opinion is not the popular decision, I hope God, shows Tyreek and Kareem the right path to take, and they follow it. I hope Mahomes and Kelce will watch over Tyreek if he stays on the team. I hope Kareem goes to another team because the Browns team has some players with character issues.

Surely there can’t still be anyone out there that believes the weak “she called me a ….” defense. I was still hearing that one pretty recently from delusional fans.

I’m white in a heavily black & hispanic neighborhood. 3 different females, on different days, who I did not know, yelled at me in public about my skin color already this spring. I didn’t put my hands on any of them. I didn’t put my foot on any of them. I just ignored it.

1. He admitted he still has not apologized to this girl, even though her name and the town where she lives near CLE was published.
2. He has a serious problem he cannot even admit to himself. “That’s not me” “I didn’t exactly lie, they felt I did” “I didn’t tell the Chiefs the whole truth” It’s just a matter of time before Kareem falls back into the same pattern of behavior.
3. Even though Kareem did a fantastic on the field job for the Chiefs, a team cannot allow other players and staff to see this kind of behavior go unchallenged, especially if he misled them as Brett Veach claims.

So Browns have a first year HC, an outspoken opinionated QB who said the Coach is an idiot, a diva WR not practicing, a suspended violent sideshow RB, and 11 losing seasons in a row. I have a feeling Coach Kitchens bit off more than he can chew accepting this job, and this Browns season is going to be worse than the last.

But nearly every talking head outside KC says Mayfield > Mahomes?!?!? Lol, you are spot on my friend.

It’s amazing they have already forgotten Kingsbury let Mayfield walk and brought in Mahomes.

Browns will do well. but that amount of dysfunction wont be easy to overcome. the moment things go south, that roster may implode.

i think they will have a winning record, but doubt it will be better than 9-7. they will narrowly miss the playoffs

She’s right, there was nothing Kareem could have said that would explain or absolve what happened that night. But there is a lot he could’ve said that wouldn’t make people do a double-take, scratch their head, and say “Um, what?!” I really don’t know why he can’t just say that he wasn’t completely honest, he was scared at the time and made a mistake. Boom, done. Move on. But as you said, it’s clear he is still immature and unwilling to accept responsibility for his actions in this.

CHIEFSandSABRES

Agreed here. I still hope he gets his stuff together, and can use his experience to help someone else, but he is dead to me now. Lying about lying to the team. I’m done.

I hated the childish nickname when he was a Chief but KHunt seems to be fitting now

BleedingRedAndGold

Considering how tone-deaf what he’s been saying has been, I’m wondering if he actually grasps that lying by omission is an actual thing. That’s not excusing him any more than saying a murderer shouldn’t be punished if they legit didn’t understand it’s wrong to kill people, but it does explain how he’s been addressing the media.

Patrick Peterson just suspended for PED for 6 games = trade value just went down

Andy Reid….
make the call & offer – get the brother to Arrowhead

Him and Reek can practice their skills on each other while they sit! The football skills, not the violence and drug using skills. j/k christ! I’d love to have PP at a newly reduced price. No más Reek en el equipo de fútbol, por favor.

I have a feeling this suspension is going to be easily appealable. PP is a diabetic and the drugs he takes for that (even if its insulin) could trigger the NFL’s drug policy.

My son was diagnosed as a Type 1 diabetic at 16 and his doctor warned him that, as an athlete, he could fail drug tests and also that he is not to share insulin with his buddies because insulin is actually abused by some to help build muscle mass.

The story out right now says he already filed an appeal, then dropped it. Looks like he is serving the full term.

From what I read the full term was 8 games…lowered to 6 and he’s not appealing.

What ever happened to the couple of cases where he supposedly was drunk and fighting? Think it was in Westport but not sure. They seemed to have been forgotten.

Well said Tony. Clearly shows no remorse. Does he not have a PR person? It seems like every time he opens his mouth he says something stupid. Someone needs to hand the kid a script. Although we all know now the real Kareem.

Chiefs dodged a large bullet by letting him go. What he got caught doing wasn’t the worst thing he did in KC. I’ve had some friends personally effected by his actions.

I’m not putting their name / the actual occurrence on media, so they can be ridiculed and mock by the worst type of NFL fans again.

I debated for a while about even typing my above response out. I just want people to be aware that there is more than what was even reported.

Hell I was regrettably one of his fans and defended him after the incident before I found out about my friend and I feel sick about it now.

Was it violence related?

Mitko

Worse than just violence. Sorry I really can’t any more out of respect for the victim. ( I probably shouldn’t have brought it up in the first place, I’m just so sick of saying the media say how great a person he is now that he’s a Brown)

If you have some credible information that would change any minds about it being a bad decision to cut him outright, EVERYONE needs to hear it. But if nobody is willing to talk about it, then it’s like nothing happened and that’s how it will be, and frankly, should be treated. Nobody should base any opinions on “something” that happened to a friend of a guy on the Internet.

I can take a good guess, and Mitko is definitely credible. I’ll back y’all up on that.

I completely get that take. And tbh I understand why people who don’t know me wouldn’t take my word for it. At the same time there’s a lot of folks on AG that do know and and do trust me (as Starry and Antony has eluded to) and I feel it’s important to let those people know.
Trust me if it was my choice to make I’d tell you, but to be honest if it had happened to me I don’t know if I would have said anything to anyone either.
This person did make a post on social media mentioning a Chiefs player without giving out names and was harassed for it, so they deleted it. And no longer wish to pursue it.

That last part was intended as a general statement and not intended to be a reference to your credibility, specifically.

So for asking a question I’m considered the worst type of fan now?

Not at all. But this is a social media platform that anyone can view. If I share much more details than I already have it can get back to the same people that harassed them before.
I appoligize if I phrased that poorly, that was not intended to refer to you as the worst type of fan

Guess I misread what you said. I’ve heard that KH had gotten into other types of drunken brawls, but don’t know any specifics. Sorry about your friend.

While I don’t think he’s fully owned up to his doings, I read his answers as he was to intoxicated to truly remember. With that said, I highly doubt he didn’t get filled in by friends that were there to have enough knowledge to understand what happened.

maaaaan…..And I’m still concerned that his ‘rebuilding year’ is gonna happen in CLE, which, y’know just happens to be 1) his hometown, 2) around ALL of his boys, & 3) the scene of his incident in question.

I can’t help but shake my head.

It’s like Dorse has decided the best way to help a drunk pal dry out is to hire him as the bartender at their favorite watering hole. WHAT COULD GO WRONG GUYS?

go_saleaumua

And no genuine contrition/ownership on Kareem’s part. Almost no situational awareness.

Maaaan. This could go….a few different ways.

Could be like the alcoholic that tiger woods hired to be the bartender at his restaurant. Guy gets drunk after work drive off wrecks and dies. Then his parents sue tiger because it’s his fault their son drove drunk and killed himself (to get money).

Asking an American to take personal responsibility for their actions is like asking D&D to write a solid season of GoT without GRRM source material.
