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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Teams have to have this template prepped by now. 

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.

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.

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.

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?

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're inventing a narrative here. 

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.

That sounds ominous for his Week 13 status, and obviously this could last for multiple weeks and the remainder of the season

You might want to read a textbook about battery...

“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

 

wish we could post pictures here. I have ss

 

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

Im always amused at the hot takes that the NFL is full of crap  and repeating the same mistakes. Of course they are. They're less scrupulous than a tobacco company. The ones who are crazy are us for imagining they WOULDNT try to cover this up, or at least turn as blind an eye as humanly possible.

Its like their concussion rule- the rule is if you're not a star you get treated one way to make the NFL look like their taking it seriously, but if you are a star you can be huffing smelling salts on the sideline with pupils the size of dinner plates like Kamara was last night and nobody is saying a word. If Hunt was a backup linebacker, he'd be suspended for life already. It is what it is.
