    It’s incredibly shallow to think that. They suspended Zeke a star, Adrian Peterson, another star. They aren’t not suspending Tyreek Hill because of Patrick Mahomes, if they cared about him that much the Pats wouldn’t have won the AFC title game.

    If there was anything there, he would’ve been suspended. They did a 3 month investigation. You don’t know the half of it. NFL isn’t taking that kind of PR hit if there was something even remotely there. They know way more than you or I.

    Fuck are you talking about? They're already in the process of taking a PR hit for not suspending him.

    Look, you can die on this hill. He's a great player for your fave team. Don't think anybody would expect any less

    Yeah so like, you really think they are willing to take this hit if they think he actually did whatever it is everyone thinks he did? If he did torture his kid, by all means, fry him like a pig, but there obviously isn’t anything there. They could have hit him with a slap on the wrist 2 or 4 game suspension for conduct detrimental to the league, but they didn’t even do that.

    I'm telling you what I'm watching and they're already being dragged by the media and fans. And the additional PR hit is coming when the news of Hill's lucrative extension gets reported.

    Trying to understand the inconsistencies of the NFL is a doozy and a half. But KC already knows Hill is a piece of feces. Banished him before the league even concluded their investigation. You know this too.

    Burfict and Hill should probably be sharing a cell.

    As small as a stadium can be when seating 65,000. The smaller the better, especially with the ability to close that sliding door and create a domed/loud effect for home field advantage purposes

    Just throwing darts out there because I can't figure out that ruling for the life of me. What's the difference between Zeke's case(6 games) and Hill's(0 games)?

    All I will say is this. The NFL has an absolutely inconsistent and asinine way of dealing with penalties of any kind because (A) the CBA gives the meathead Goddell sole power to meet out punishment without any established guidelines, (B) the owners run this league with Goddell as a stooge, and (C) ultimately all that matters to the teams, the league, and the fans are the best athletes on the field. They can be mass murderers, and it doesn't matter....of course unless you kneel in protest.

    Foster, Hardy, Peterson...I mean there is a talent vs punishment ratio right?

    Doesn't make it right. It doesnt make the need to change NFL management a less important.

    Pretty much. To add..these lawsuits from former players over player safety and post-career health assistance also seem to ruffle the league's feathers a bit, but that said, the league has powered through that too. The shield is pretty tough. The league is almost at a point where all news is good news because they've been able to power through it all and continue to thrive as the most successful league. A decision like this is controversial and the leading topic..just another way of staying on the brain and in the forefront.

    The league is like the blob..no matter what you throw at it, it grows. You had a bunch of people thinking that 20-30 years down the line, that the league would be no more because of player safety. But then what? RAIDERS get a brand new stadium in Las Vegas, Rams get a brand new stadium in Inglewood, and the league moves to incorporate gambling/hops into bed with Caesar's palace and Vegas full blast. There's no stopping them.

    They told him to stay away like anyone else would. Standard protocol. He may or may not be guilty but all I’m saying is I haven’t seen anything that has come close to proving he is guilty, and apparently neither has law enforcement or the NFL, so it seems reasonable to conclude based on that, he might be innocent. also to clear up certain things, the investigation revolves around bruises found on his kid, not the broken arm, that was already deemed an accident very early on. His bitch was setting him up on the recording

    Standard protocol? Guess I have to remind you that Hill was under investigation by the authorities, which was before the league decided to step in and launch their own investigation..and he wasn't banished by KC while the authorities were doing their investigation into the matter. He wasn't banished by KC until the audio leaked and spooked the league into action, when the authorities were done with their initial investigation.

    Does KC even banish Hill at all if the audio doesn't leak? No. Probably not. The audio leaked and it made everybody dance. He very clearly threatened her on the audio..someone that he'd already beaten while pregnant. Standard protocol? There is no standard protocol with the NFL..thats the consistent complaint from fans. In the past, we've seen both the league office and teams banish players before authorities conclude investigations. They finesse this stuff however they see fit

    I drove by a couple months ago. It's very compact in the sense of how many acres it occupies, but looks like its pretty tall. The picture sort of confirms that impression with how vertically arranged the seating is..
    I guess from a player perspective it's going to feel like the fans are hanging over you.

    Can't imagine what a nightmare game day traffic will be. Work day traffic in that area is bad enough.

    There was no reason to banish him because it was the off-season and OTA’s and shit hadn’t started yet. Also the league didn’t do anything when the audio leaked, because once again, off-season. There was time to sort everything out, and they did. A lot of the others happened during the season
