at “The Other Place” there were (sadly) a few who were slamming LDT for his decision … sad that some people are so petty and mean and uncaring about anything or anyone other than themselves

100% major props to Dr LDT … be safe and thank you!

I’m sad and proud at the same time.

Teams need to be granted relief on the cap for things like this. They shouldn’t be punished for a player opting not to play due to the craziness. This isnt the same thing as retirement.

It’ll be difficult for him to come back to football.

Because his heart is elsewhere. Football is a jealous mistress.

So, if games are played this season, who is probably our starting RG now?

I’ll put two dollars on Allegretti. Five dollars on Remmers.

This also saves the Chiefs 5.5 mil this year and 4 mil next year

Are you sure about that? I thought it would only be his 2020 base salary ($2.75 million, minus 150k that he gets for opting out).

Why would we save money in 2021?

I don’t think players have to give back signing bonuses that they’ve already been paid.

Fair point I just sent of if salary cap hit I’m not sure how much you give up if you opt out

Very noble decision. I’m not too concerned about losing him though.

Respect. I admire the moral courage and would hope I’d show the same fortitude in the same situation.

Damn! But I get it – won’t be the only player in the league doing the same

As I understand it, he’s not working as a doctor, but an orderly. If this is right, it only increases my respect for the man. Those are some overworked, underpaid, under appreciated people doing the nasty stuff. I know money isn’t likely an issue with him, but it is for the rest of them
