should a player be exempt from suspensions just because it's close to the playoffs? should a suspension be any different because of when the crime occurs or goes public?

In theory, no. But we've seen a lot of cases where things get drawn out, so they have no resolution until a year down the line.

I can't recall any other incidents this late in the season off the top of my head though, so who knows how the league will treat it.

I gotta think that the NFL was prepared for this and already have an action plan for the this scenario emerging.

If that's the case, why not get out in front of this in February when the incident was first reported?  Why wait for the video to surface?  Looks bad on the NFL and the Chiefs if that's the case.  Like they were hoping it would all go away and they wouldn't have to deal with it.

I'd think it will not take long for them to come down on this.

You are giving way too much credit to where there is none due

Regardless of the outcome or whether it was her hand or head or a foot shove or not he tried to physically attack a young girl multiple times on video. I don't see how he is not suspended.

Basically if the league chooses to suspend him the player can stay the suspension by appealing.  IMO, the chiefs have to take action now though and they will and should.

The Chiefs are working on a statement regarding Kareem Hunt kicking a woman. Could be released today or tomorrow.

I think the comparison is more that there is a video...where the event was reported and nothing happened...but now video makes it more real and hard to ignore.

 I could agree with that particular comparison.

I can deal with a suspension next year.  How much leeway and power would the NFLPA have to block a suspension here?  Weren't they able to at least stall for Zeke and Brady?

This is a bit different since the assault is on video.  

It definitely wasn't a Ray Rice KO thing but Hunt definitely aggressively went after her.  Thankfully his buddies were able to stop him.  He was in rage mode.

Is this Hunt's girlfriend?  Wife?

I would doubt it as she's 4 years younger (and also under the drinking age).

I hope you all are joking because you sure are making me laugh. The NFL has been ill prepared for all these situations the last decade and Doug Williams shows NFL teams are clueless when talking about them.

Just got a Fantasy Life alert. Upon hearing the news, KC sent K. Hunt home.

When are they traveling to Oakland? 

They really don't need him to beat Oakland....

Excused from practice and sent home. 

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/25419410

 

Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt is seen shoving and kicking a woman in a video of a February incident released by TMZ on Friday.

The Chiefs excused Hunt from practice and sent him home from the facility, pending further action, after the video's release, sources told ESPN's Dan Graziano.

[Graziano] I am told the Chiefs sent Kareem Hunt home from the facility today upon learning of the release of the video and pending further action. Most likely short-term resolution is that Hunt would be placed on the commissioner's exempt list pending a final decision, but we will see.

The flip side of this is my amazement that guys like Hunt get suckered into these confrontations.

Just walk away before you're sued bigly, bro.

You guys who are debating about the details, yeah...it may not be the textbook definition of what we consider "battery" but the optics are terrible. I'd be surprised after the fallout from this (and the often delayed, reactionary nature of Goodell) if Hunt isn't suspended for at least a couple of games.

Just a matter of now or next year.

No way they let this video follow the Chiefs through the playoffs, or even the end of the regular season with a QB in the MVP race. Hunt is done this year imo.

Can you imagine KCC in the Superbowl and the media coverage this video would get?

Wonder why it got leaked on a Friday?

Because someone in the TMZ office is 6-6 and really needs to beat the Hunt owner this week to make the playoffs.

Picked up handcuff Ware from the wire earlier this week.  I’m sure lots are scrambling to do so now.

Exactly. They will want the stink from this gone by then and not distracting from the wunderkind MVP QB storyline. It also dredges up all the Tyreek Hill stuff again. I'd be shocked if Hunt isn't done this year.

How does the NFL continue to not learn this lesson?☹️

Ray Rice wasn’t in essence blackballed from the NFL because video showed him knocking a woman unconscious.  He was blackballed because video showed him knocking a woman...

You think all those members in his entourage were just "friends"? Most times friends become your handlers/security buffer. I mean watch the police report. A few of those guys weren't just friends.
 

That tool who grabbed the video cam knew the deal.

I am a Hunt owner and I agree that he should be suspended.  Yes we are FF nerds but this is poor judgement by him.  I will prepare to head into the playoffs without Hunt and have very low expectations on my chances.  This is unfortunate but real life comes first.

The way suspension and appeals work, along with lawsuits ala Zeke, my guess is that won't happen til next year, but the commissioner's exempt list is probably the most likely scenario that will happen this year-same effect for fantasy owners as a suspension.

“Basically, the league either saw the video and did nothing (which isn’t good) or the league didn’t see the video because it failed to take steps to obtain it, thereby learning nothing from the Ray Rice fiasco (which isn’t good).”

the report of what actually happened is interesting. friends of his friend, once he found out they were 19 he asked them to leave. girl pitches a fit and instigates the whole thing. I'm trying to get a link to the report but it's definitely the "other side of the story"... more than just a video

I'm not sure what is considered instigation to kick a 19 year old girl while she's huddled on the ground.

I'm not defending what he did. just saying the entire story is interesting and worth finding out

Also there is no way chiefs and NFL didnt know about this, there are publications from february on the incident

Two sides? All that matters is he is trying to get through people to beat and kick on a woman. I'm amazed people are defending Hunt who is on tape kicking a woman. Then again, I shouldnt be.
